LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE – Supernatural Faith in Action

August 31, 2013

Matthew 11:12 “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

Life can be a journey with Jesus. The choice is ours. It all depends on our perspective and how we choose to react to lives challenges. It is very helpful to remember that this life is a transition place. It will not last forever and is definitely not all there is to existence. (Ps. 39:11, ICor.15:51-52)
We are able to gain hope and insight as we remember that through every season, every challenge and every event He is taking us someplace! Someplace good! Our lives are not a random chain of events. Even those things that seem negative, hard and bring pain can and are used in order for Jesus to take us to a His desired end for us. (Jer. 29:11) Jesus wastes nothing. Everything is used, everything that hits our lives has value and every season is actually taking us to another place. Another place in Him.
This includes people He chooses to place in our lives. I have found that as I follow Jesus He is very specific about the people He allows in my life. His heart is to place people in my life who will draw me closer to Him. This is both challenging and exciting for any relationship brings both. Along these lines, I have seen people choose to walk in cooperation with Jesus in the area of relationships and see the great fruit that comes from that..To both parties. I have also seen those that have chosen to keep Jesus out of the area of who they choose as friends or life mates and seen the pain, confusion, and destruction that comes from that choice as well. Both choices are an adventure but obviously the option with Jesus is a much wiser and better option. More on this subject of relationship on another post.
Bottom Line: The key to where we will end up is determined by the position our hearts take as well as how willing we are to walk in obedience in the truth of Christ.
Life will create the adventures, Jesus will take us through the adventures as a journey but we determine the outcome by our attitudes, choices and obedience.
Adventure – an exciting or very unusual experience. Participation in exciting undertakings or enterprises: the spirit of adventure. A bold, usually risky undertaking; hazardous action of uncertain outcome.
I’ve come to see that each challenge in life is just Divine appointments in disguise. They can be used to experience a different level of victory, another opportunity to add new spiritual tools to our tool belt and to experience a different place of victory with Jesus leading the way. The choice is ours!
