Have you ever been lost while on your way? For those of you that received your license to drive at the time, or by the time you had GPS in the car, may not understand this analogy because you could just redirect if you made the wrong turn. However, there are a number of us that know what it meant to be lost while on the way. If you were ever lost while on your way, it meant that you would remain lost until you changed your way. In other words, the direction in which you were going needed to be redirected, or you needed to stop and delay further action until you heard from, or saw something that you knew. I can remember on a number of occasions being called for those precious final directions that would bring a family member, or a friend on in to the final destination.
When you are lost while on the way, the first thing that the person you call on to help you out will say is, look out there and tell me what you see. They may word it differently by asking what street signs, or exit signs are you able to see? The reason is when you are dealing with someone that has been down the path that you are on, that person just needs a few identifiable spots or familiar views that will tell that person exactly where you are. Once they know where you are, then they can usher you on in from your state of being lost. And the GPS users will need to know this also because when you are going to a place that is new and not yet mapped, the GPS may get you close, but you will still remain lost.
Let’s kick the car driving analogy to the curve for now, and lets replace it with the reality of being lost while on the way to Father. We have many members of the Body of Christ, that are driving a word of promise on the way to Father, but have yet to see that promise come to pass. They have become lost to that promise while on the way to Father. They need to have their current directions re-directed, or they need to stop, and delay further action until they hear from, or see something that they know. When you are walking in the fullness of God to bring to pass a word of promise, you have to remember to follow what shows itself next. In the processing of that promise from hope to having the evidence of it being seen, the only GPS that you can follow is that which pops up next. It’s always about what’s next: until you can see the thing that is next for you to do , it is still just an imagination.
Now this is very important, you may not yet be at your destination, but you may not be as lost as you think either. You just need to look out there, and see what you see. Do you see anything going on that matches, or could be linked to what you are trying to bring to pass. Do you see any people, places, or things that have any substance that match up with the word of promise that you are driving. You may not see your destination yet, but you may have already been looking at your next move without realizing it. Walking in the fullness of God through the God Heads is a process that goes on step by step. There is no GPS like destination to pull up from the beginning of the trip with directions marked completely through to the end. Your GPS in God is revealed along the way through to your destination. You will not know your next exit, or turn off until it pops up in front of you. Then how will you know it is your exit? You will know because it will be made up of the substance that you hope for. Faith is the substance of things hope for, so if you feel lost, just delay any further action until you see an opportunity that contains any of the substance that you need to make your promise evident: seen. If you are driving a word of promise, let’s say going to college, down the long road of hope, and you just happen to see a sign that says college tuition for those that can solve this math problem. This may, or may not be your answer for college, but you need to turn off the road of hope for a minute because you have substance which is next. This math problem contest could be the link to the final answer that God has for you, but you became lost because you missed the turn off due to your lack of belief on how it will come about.
Last word on this today. When you come up on something that has substance that matches, or could be used to bring to pass your word of promise, take it. We miss so much from God because we didn’t believe the thing that Father sent that was next. You can’t figure it out for Father. The one thing that you can do is to make sure you turn off on those things that contains substance of that which you are hoping for. Jesus saw the substance of the two fish, and five loaves which allowed Him to feed thousands. Always remember, Father doesn’t need much substance, just a little bit a do!!!!
