It is truly amazing how the two very distinctive paths of life, the ones we have grown up knowing, have drastically changed for us. These two paths I am speaking of is: the one with Jesus, and the one without. It isn’t that the two paths actually change, those paths will always be present and intact, however that second path of choice is no longer even a conceivable option for us. We radically chose Jesus and continued to cling to Him as our mental, physical and spiritual ground became uncertain. And through our multiple storms, hardships, valleys, and raging seas we intimately learned only Jesus can shepherd us through this lifetime and on into eternity, which deepened our faithfulness to Him. We fell deeply in-love with our Savior in a very profound way as the Holy Spirit, our Comforter, became the very breath we breathe while our past became a Divinely healed one. Through the deepening process of our relationship with Him, we have been diligently taught on Hebrews 11:6, ‘But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.’ Amazingly, we have experienced times where it has been difficult to receive all He has for us. Something we may never have thought would have ever been difficult! It can be very intimating to leap when Jesus instructs us to, and to follow across the narrow peaks of the mountain tops, but as the Holy Spirit has honed in our diligence in continuing to remain fully open to Jesus as we remain turned exclusively to Him in all that we do, we are reminded that “Abba is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” And as our relationship with Him deepens even more, we discover that some of His rewards are found even within the new choices rising up before us. Choices that are no longer solely based on “what is right or wrong,” but are instead choices revealing the two new paths now present in our life: either a comforting, steady road in Him, or a vibrantly comforting, steadying, mind-blowing road in Him. Praise King Jesus, our loving Abba is diligently faithful! ‘God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.’ (1 Corinthians 1:9) Praise King Jesus, all glory and honor unto Him!
