When God Writes Your Life Story

07 Aug

When God Writes Your Life Story bookIt is not what a man achieves, but what he believes and strives for that makes him noble and great.” – Oswald Chambers

These all died in faith, not having received what was promised, but having seen it and greeted it from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. (Hebrews 11:13)

What do you need to let go of to let God?

For the past 7 years, my theme verse for each day has been Matthew 6:33, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” About 3-4 weeks ago while I was journaling, the Holy Spirit told me that “Seek Ye First” applies not only to me as an individual, but my company as well. Since then, our web team has been spending an average of 60-90 minutes in devotional time each morning. As a result, our team and each of its team members is seeing a lot of fruit.

Watch out life, here I come!“Each morning, a different team member leads the devotional time. Yesterday morning was Amy’s turn. She is my administrative assistant. Amy shared a fantastic message using the book by Eric and Leslie Ludy called “When God Writes Your Life Story.” Amy read page 45 of that book to our team and then shared how to apply that to our lives. Here is what that page says:

“God created us to experience vibrant daily intimacy with Him and to constantly pursue even greater depths of relationship with Him. But too often, once we scratch the surface of knowing Him, we pitch our tent. We stop pursuing Him. We stop seeking Him. And instead of having a daily, passionate relationship with our God, we settle for an imitation. We become trapped in the shallowness of the Christian game. We sing songs about His love and read books about His grace, but we rarely experience Him in our daily lives.

To experience the something more that each of us longs for, we must put away the Christian game, reflect our imitation versions of Christianity, pack up our tents, and embark upon the adventure of truly knowing God. We must shake off the settler’s mentality and become pioneers, passionately pursuing more and more of our King.”

Heavenly Father, we praise You as our GPS, our ultimate mapping system. Thank You for guiding and directing our steps. Thank You that while each of us has free will, it is like a tiny dot in the middle of a huge circle representing Your master plan. Thank You that it’s Your plans that prevail such that our individual stories fit into the context of Your much bigger story in which there is eternal victory. We bless You Jesus and Your holy name. Amen and hallelujah!
