When I look at this picture I am reminded that we are like bows in His quiver. He shoots us straight so we hit the mark that He planned for us to hit.
The fire below the missile is not as great as the fire of God that burns within our hearts, but like the fire below the missile, so the same power that raised Christ from the dead dwells in us. The fire propels us upward, forward, higher, always reaching for more of God.
The launching pad is the cushion of rest.
The Faithful Way
Psalm 119:30 I have chosen the faithful way.
What is choosing the faithful way going to look like in our lives?
Choosing the faithful way is going to look like for me… learning to rest in the promises of God.
I want to be faithful in believing the words of the One I love. More than anything I want to believe the words of the One I believe in.
In believing His words, I want to be faithful to keep His Word… before my eyes, hidden in my heart, revealed through my actions.
This is an important part of My Journey of Faith.
Keeping His Word is going to bring me to a place of rest in every area of my life I struggle. The power of rest is going to pull me into alignment with God’s purposes and goals for me.
Hebrews 4:1 The Message puts it this way, ‘the promise of resting in Him pulls us on to God’s goals for us.’
1Peter 1:5 The Message, ‘As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness.’
