Ephesians 5:12-17 (NIV)
12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” 15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
*Are you living according to the guidance of someone else, how you want to be perceived by others, or within the mediocre boundaries of a safety net that you have created to avoid disappointment? These choices keep us from embracing the life God wants us to grasp. Instead, people or trapped in a life ordained by the confinements of their experiences or developed from the opinions of others. Each disappointment or opinion given by someone with lower faith cools the fire God places in us, and dims the light to potentially be a TRUE example of God's supernatural capabilities. We walk through life sleeping on scriptures that open the gateway for exceeding and abundant life, and embrace the limitations of natural fulfillment.
However, God is trying to expose our authentic selves that have been covered by failures and trapped from the hurts of unfulfilled desires. He is waiting for us to embrace the fire we were born with, and go beyond set boundaries to dictate a supernatural future of overflow. However, you must first put down your secret disobedient practices...the hidden things you like to do, say, taste, touch, or just explore those things that are not of God nor has He given permission to embrace. Those thoughts of knowing you have been given assignments, seeds to sow, or tasks to FULLY embrace yet they are ignored daily. Therefore, do not live in foolishness or a lifestyle triggered by your thoughts...Embrace His will even if it is just to be still enough to allow the full manifestation to occur.
