getting into God’s stride means nothing less than being one with Him. and, the best way is through LOVE — love for God and love for all.
to love God, yes, we know. to be loyal to Him, we know, too. the same goes with being confident in Him, we know it also.
and, we may already have given up a lot to follow Him like turning our backs to old addictions and forgiving others even when it hurts.
but, to be one with Him like acting in His divine nature in this jealous, selfish, ungrateful, and pretentious world until none of our human nature is evident is another matter. sigh!
yet, “it is God’s Spirit that changes the atmosphere of our way of looking at things, and then things begin to be possible which before were impossible. a person’s worth is revealed in his attitude toward the ordinary things of life when he is not under the spotlight.” — My Utmost For His Highest
behaving the proper Christian way in love and kindness when people are watching is easy. it is behaving the same way during unexpected and unguarded moments that comes as a challenge and is where we often fail.
“and it takes a long time to get there, but keep at it. don’t give up because the pain is intense right now— get on with it, and before long you will find that you have a new vision and a new purpose.”
thank You for Your patience and faith in me, my dear Lord.
