Pressing My Way Wednesday


John 10:10

“The theif cometh not, but for to steal, kill and destroy; I came that they might have life, and may have it abundantly”

When you look at the anatomy of an egg it has 8 layers.  The outer layer which is it’s shell protects you from getting to the inside of it.  In order to get to the inside you would have to literally break it open.  Though it’s outer shell can become cracked it can still stay in tack due to the layers that is underneath it’s shell. Even if the egg becomes broken it can still be used.  When an egg is boiled it increases the strength in the layers of the egg and makes it even harder for you to get into.  Even if you crack the egg you still have to peel back it’s shell and break into it’s other layers before you could ever get to the center of the egg.  The enemies job is to keep what’s on the inside of you from growing and being produced. In order for him to even destroy what’s on the inside of you he would have to breakthrough the many layers of you which is your mind, your heart and break your spirit. He knows if you ever produce what is on the inside of you his kingdom would be destroyed.  The more that you strengthen your inner man it becomes harder for him to break through in your life. A long this journey you may become cracked, but  it is from the cracks in life that we draw strength and builds up our resistance.  In time all wounds heal.  Though they may leave a scar it is an outward testimony that you survived and have overcome a fall.  The thing about the fall is that you may have become cracked, but your not easily broken.

The Direct Timing Of God

I hadn’t even been in my house for a year and I have seen more caterpillars and butterflies than I have seen in years. They are becoming a rarity. One day I saw 4 caterpillars in a row. I got so excited, like a little kid I decided to collect them. I got a jar and made sure there were different sizes of grass for them to crawl on, that there was enough grass at the bottom for them to eat from and there were enough holes at the top for them to breath. I made sure to continue to check on them from time to time. One day I checked on them and noticed that one of them had died, one had gotten away and the others were decreasing in size. I had never seen anything like it. I couldn’t figure out for the life of me what was happening. I heard something say let them go. I really didn’t want to, but since my method wasn’t working I did so. Not sure if they even survived, but I never saw to many more after that. Today as God was downloading some stuff into me he took me back to that moment a year ago and said the reason why they were dying is because you had confined them into a place they were never meant to fit in and you tried to transform them into something before their time. They weren’t ready to be transformed into butterflies yet. To everything there is a time and a season. The process is unavoidable, but because you were trying to turn them into something before their timing it was becoming detrimental to their health. If you aren’t careful you can conform to the opinons and identity of others instead of transforming to the identity of Christ which you are called to. Don’t allow anyone to confine you to a place (a box) that you were never meant to fit in. Your were never designed to live in bondage. But don’t go ahead of God’s timing. Even when God shows us certain things it doesn’t mean that we are suppose to immediately go.  When it is your time and your season you will know it. Not only will you be able to sense it in the air, but as you get into position everything else will fall into place. Someone asked tthe question, how will know that you are in your purpose. It’s something that really can’t be explained other than you will just know. Be ye anxious for nothing, wait on the direct timing of God. Your season of change is coming quicker than you think and you can’t afford to let it pass you by this time. Ready yourself to jump in when God says NOW! Get in position because you are next in line.
