AUDIO MESSAGE — God wants to take you somewhere incredible. But there are no shortcuts to get there. You’ve got to take the steps that he has laid out for your life.
Psalm 37:23 — The steps of a man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way.
Nothing just happens. There is an order to the things God is doing. God has something incredible in store for you. But there are some things he needs to do in you first so you can thrive where he’s taking you. He is making you strong so you can handle the vision he has for your life.
He’s building something in you so you can handle the capacity of blessing and responsibility where he is taking you.
You can’t skip the steps. You can’t expedite the process but you can delay it through disobedience.
We’ve got to learn that the steps are good and that even though we might not be where we hoped we would be or thought we might be by now, we can still praise God and continue to be faithful on the steps. We can lean into the season we are in and keep pressing on into everything God has in store for us.
Philippians 3:12-14 — Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
