The Only Direction Is Forward!

New Directions was given to me by The Holy Spirit from Our Daddy - He told me to go in a way that you have never been, and do not return back the same way! Not that I would not revisit some of the places in my life, but when I return, I will bring a New Direction to that place!
Galatians 2:12-16 “12 for before certain men came from James, he would eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision. 13 And the rest of the Jews also played the hypocrite with him, so that even Barnabas was carried away with their hypocrisy. 14 But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, “If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews? 15 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, 16 knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.”
Be steadfastly faithful in your calling - Either you will desire to please Daddy, or man, but you cannot do both!
When you walk in the flesh, your faith dwindles because of the assignment God has called for you to move forward into!
This is why we become bothered by those things of the world, the world cannot comprehend your Faithfulness in the midst of it, thus they want to cause you to become weary in well doing!
Yes, God Loves Us All, but when we operate contrary to His Word and Command, we cause our flesh to become our god - And God will not make you give Him The Glory!
And when you operate from a fleshly perspective, you can expect nothing because you are doubled minded and you say that you are separated from Daddy, which cannot be because He said so; John 10:28 “28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.”
But, when you walk in the Holy Spirit, you will mind those things of The Spirit, thus you will find favor with both God and man!
Therefore; we need Great Faith to remain moving forward because the enemy will only send what your flesh calls for - Luke 22:31-32 “31 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.””
Christ has given us Great Faith, and it won’t fail - We just need to operate in it, and when we are weak, we ill know that we are strong!
Because we know that our faith will not fail!
And you will have a testimony that will open up The Great Faith door for others to see a glimpse of God and all that He can do for them!
Acts 14:27 “27 Now when they had come and gathered the church together, they reported all that God had done with them, and that He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.”
When you give The Report of The Lord, someone may hear it, that has had a similar or same experience and will see that if you can make it through, so can I!
Paul said in Acts 16:28-31 “28 But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.” 29 Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31 So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.””
Your testimony is a called to someone whom may feel as if they have no other options left, but to give up!
And when you let your light shine in the earth, they will see that you are not just healed, but whole!
You are all here!
Now, they realize that “Hope which does not disappoint” is theirs too, so they ask questions about Who caused you to be so faithful, even when you going through?
Now you can testify of The Gospel Of Jesus The Christ!
How He too, said; Luke 22:42 “42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.””
Jesus (The Man) had to overcome the flesh, so that The Holy Spirit (The Promise) would Move Forward!
He said; “Nevertheless” Be as it may - I will have a Great Faith to finish this race because Daddy Will Be Glorified after this!
I have a great Faith to move forward in the calling of God!
Because Daddy has a Determined Purpose for you - Keep Moving Forward!
Paul and Silas were chained up in prison, but yet released Praise To God in the midst of it - And for that - Heaven Stood up and began to receive Their Praise - And joined in, causing a thunderous sound that shook lose the foundation of what was binding them up!
And because they praised Him fervently, those who were there with them, heard it and we all know that “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by The Word of God. . .” So they had Great Faith to remain when the doors were opened up!
God opened the doors to those whom should have been there because they committed the crime, but because of Grace, Daddy said I am your “Another Chance” come on into The Kingdom, fitted for all who call upon My Name and believe!
Luke 22:29-30 “29 And I bestow upon you a kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one upon Me, 30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.””
You are no longer chained by what you did, I have loosed you to be free into My Kingdom, Grace and Mercy will follow you all the days of your life and you will dwell in My Presence!
You are freed to seek My Face, and when you do, I will strengthen you forevermore!
1 Chronicles 16:11 “11 Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore!”
Revelation 3:21 “21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
I came to encourage us today - Keep Moving Forward - Don’t stop planning because it seems as if it looks like it is not going to work - you keep moving forward!
Mark 16:17 “17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;”
Your Great Faith will cause you to see what God has already done! Ecclesiastes 3:15 “15 That which is has already been, And what is to be has already been; And God requires an account of what is past.”
The reason the Disciples could not cast out the demon was because they had little faith - Miracles - Signs - And Wonders - We sing it but how Great Of Faith do we have to believe it? When you realize that my Great Faith keeps me moving forward - Nevertheless!
Jesus The Christ is saying to us today - The Holy Spirit has instructed me to tell you this, In this next level of your life, Great Faith will be required of you - They won’t like you, and you may be ridiculed, but when they try to bind you up and put into shackles - remember that Christ went into Jerusalem for you and for me - So that The Promise may be fulfilled through His Crucifixion!
The Angels ministered to Him and He went forward in Power and Strength - They praised Him as He went forth - Hosanna! Hosanna! But because of their little faith, they crucified Him!
Nevertheless - On The Third Day!
