I was fellowshipping with God Saturday morning and the phrase came to me, I begin rejoicing. It is nothing like being with God it is the best satisfaction and high that a person or a thing can give.
Webster’s meaning of March: (1) to move along steadily usually with a rhythmic stride (2) to move in a direct purposeful manner; to make steady progress.
We walk by faith and not by what we see. The biggest faith walk for God to enlarge us is the love walk. The enemy uses offenses to get us off the love walk because the devil knows faith works by love. Read 1 Corinthian 13 every day and when the offense arises say “no I choose to walk in love even though I am angry, irritated, and hurt.” We can not progress if we are not walking in love or holding on to anger and bitterness.
Most of us heard the saying from Psalm 30:5: weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. God revealed to me when David had a problem, frustration, anger, hurt, disappointment, or crisis, he would immediately go to God and tell Him how he was feeling. God would give him comfort and a word to hold David over until victory came. Do not let a negative emotion stay. God is a very present help. It is okay to be angry, but do not let it cause you to be bitter by holding onto it. Ask God to help you, and then joy comes. Maintain the joy by holding onto what God said to get to your promised land. Sometimes when you cry to God He delivers speedily. Other times He just gives you a word to hold onto while you are going through your midnight season to get you to the other side. Remain steady. If you have to cry out to God several times during the day, do it. God restores your soul which means it is a day-to-day process. God’s mercies are new every morning.
The faith walk begins with the word of God. In the beginning, was the word, and the word was with God.; the word was God (John 1:1) The word then became flesh/reality. We continue in the word, then we are God’s disciples (followers of Jesus Christ), we know the truth, and the truth sets us free (John 8:31). It is consistency that leads us to the enlarged territory. God’s word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path (Psalm 119:105); it is a guide
Let God be your Shepherd to lead and guide you. Acknowledge God as you take steps of faith and He will direct your path (Proverbs 3:5-6) Read Psalm 23. God guides us through every stage of our lives.
God loves us and wants the best for us. We walk in confidence that God loves us and in His word, God’s perfect love casts out fear. (1 John 4:18) God did not give us the spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind (the mind of Christ) 2 Timothy 1:7. God can give us instruction on what to do however if it is a challenge we can allow fear to keep us from moving forward. They that are fearful are not made perfect in love (1 John 4:18) When we know God loves us, we can walk in boldness because God is with us every step of the way. God knows the plan for our lives, plans to prosper us not harm us, to give us hope, and a future (Jeremiah 29:11) If we fall, we can get back up with the help of God. Do not live in condemnation because there is no condemnation to those that are in Christ when we confess and get back on the right track. Do not look back it can keep you from being enlarged. Keep going higher in God like an eagle.God takes us from faith to faith, glory to glory!
March and God will enlarge!
Prayer: Thank you God for blessing me, Enlarge my territory. Keep your hands upon me, and keep me from evil. I walk by faith by choosing to stay in love. God, I receive your love, and do not walk in condemnation. I repent and get back on the right track. There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. Because I know you love me, I have no fear. I can come boldly before your throne and find grace to help in times of need. I trust you to be my shepherd to guide me through every phase of my life. In Jesus’ name! Amen.
