We no longer get tripped up by over speculating, wondering, or analyzing. The Lord has taught us to take each circumstance and issue as the unique experience it is, good or bad, while a specialized awareness of Him, vigilantly directed by the Holy Spirit, keeps Him always before us. We actively live in His presence, no longer needing to know if we are handling it the right way or the proper way, instead we deeply know it is His way, the only way. Miraculously, we have gone from believing to truly knowing! ‘Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him.’ (John 14:6-7) We can only handle things His way, which is intimately revealed to us moment by moment as we go through all experiences with Him. Our path leads us in only one direction: deeper in Him, which is going from believing to knowing!
We were not created, nor equipped to understand everything, which is another beautiful, personal reminder of why Jesus needs to be the active, reigning Lord in our life. We have long realized that we are not to live here and wait to get to heaven to get to know Him, none of that thinking even lines up with the Bible. We do not do what we think is right, and then are left wondering if we should have done it or not, nor do we do all that we can and “hope for the best.” When we do something out of line, or something He didn’t want us to do, He immediately corrects us in only how He can. We are united with Him, we are created beings and our Creator passionately loves us. He heals when we move too fast, or too slow, He heals the way we thought we may have heard Him and found out we hadn’t. He clearly sees our heart and passionate desire to stay united with Jesus, as a result, we learn His voice through experiences and intimate alone times where we crave His presence and reach for His healing. And when it is needed, our specifically made forward movements bust through the unseen blocks and the small obstacles the enemy likes to slide before us just before we step forward, because our Creator has created us to be able to do that under His guidance while we actively choose His Way, His Life, and His Truth over all others. ‘Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’ (John 14:6)
A miraculous, resurrected life unfolds before us as our focus remains fixated on Jesus. And that gives us a whole new perspective, outlook, and motivation. It also reveals something our “fleshy” minds sometimes have trouble accepting, because they often struggle and want to “see” and “know” our next move. But nevertheless, with guidance from the Holy Spirit, our hearts remind it: what we are equipped to handle today, may not be what we are equipped to handle tomorrow, it is in His timing, not in ours. Who we are led to turn to today may not be who we are led to turn to tomorrow, it is in His direction we move, not in ours. What we are shown today may not necessarily be what our physical eyes actually see, it is through His vision we see, not through ours. What we hear today may not be what our physical ears hear, because His voice has become louder to us than even our own voice. And after going through multiple experiences with Him we realize we will no longer struggle to try and see our next move, because we know it is protectively held in our Savior’s Hands and only He is able to see the subtle traps and dangers that are lurking, intently trying to build strongholds when we try to force things to happen, or when we strive to operate by ourselves. So, we choose to follow our Shepherd through the rough terrain, while we hear and see the amazing things unfold from actively living in His resurrected life, because it is His Life, and only He knows how to live it!
