Your journey has been ordained as holy even through the muck and the mire. God corrects those He loves and shall make a way out of no way.
WHEN ON THE PATH LESS TRAVELLED
It is commonly said that there are 3 sides to every story: their version, your version, and the truth. It is grand but seldom when all three are aligned. Many times, their version is a perception of your story that is skewed with misinformation. God knows when their version is flawed, so he makes your path a journey that reveals the truth to the onlooker. By your response to their version,
you leave a trail of holiness that clears the way for other like-minded individuals to follow. If their version was allowed by God to flourish for a season, it becomes your business not to confirm their lie by walking in a weak version of yourself. Your journey has been ordained as holy even through the muck and the mire. God corrects those He loves and shall make a way out of no way. Some
know God intimately as a Healer, some know Him as a Provider, but when you experience God as a Way-Maker, this adds new vitality and optimizes your faith walk.
“How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things!” Romans 10:15b
“I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE” Jesus Christ
A lie is not a version of the truth, it is just a lie, but when the truth is revealed it is a beautiful thing to behold. If our version of what we say, do, and represent; mirrors Jesus, we would be on safe ground. Our stance when on hallowed ground, will most likely violate others, but it is meant to provoke change. (The change that inspires God Consciousness in the hearts and minds of people). You may appear to be going against the grain or rubbing the ‘powers that be’ in a wrong way but with God on your side who can be against you? They may say that you are arrogant or say you got a big head. They said all these things about Jesus, but He proceeded to walk around doing good, healing the sick, and casting out devils. In any confrontation, the WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) moniker still applies.
“Wherefore I say unto you, all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.” Matthew 12:31
The Holy Spirit represents the unadulterated truth. You are in a direct path of destruction if you offend (see Ananias and Sapphira), violating (saying that He is a liar for example). There is no scriptural clause for redemption for the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit came on the scene to dwell within our hearts after Jesus Christ died, shedding his blood upon the earth. Fifty days after Christ rose and was seen by several hundred, the day of Pentecost came (which is essentially the Church’s birthday). After which, the Church has become the body of Christ upon the earth led by this Super-Agent. Unable to be extinguished, the body of baptized believers is the undisputed champion among the living. We become a candidate to receive power from on high and receive the Holy Spirit, making our walk upon the King’s Highway a most excellent adventure.
Holiness is a way of life that strengthens people to face any challenge. The fortification of this position provides a panoramic view that reveals secrets seldom discovered by most. Therefore, it is essential to invite the whole truth into our story even if it diminishes our character. Ironically, we feed our greatness when we become less so that God becomes more.
