OUT from Under HIS WINGS

"The Path of Life is set before us by God and, unless we are on the Path of Life and pursuing oneness with Him, we cannot be saved or become fulfilled." - Keith, Brenda, and Team TTM

When we do not position ourselves under God's Care, inside of our God-given calling, we can never be safe and secure, truly happy and whole, or fulfilled in our life.  Being that so many people are outside of God, Himself, we see prisons overloaded, prescription drug use for depression and anxiety sky-rocketing, and, epidemic in our country today, unfulfilled people following a false sense of satisfaction that leads to indebtedness, and being a slave to loan companies and credit agents.
When people are not functioning in the things of God, with God, in their lives, their search will be in the wrong directions and places.  Those people, in their lack of vision and wisdom that can only be found IN God, fall into traps like racking up exorbitant debt from charging on credit what they can't afford, financing cars and luxury items they want but don't need, running away from reality by taking exotic trips or fantasy get-aways, and other things that cannot replace the satisfaction and fulfillment of being in God's Will. 
So, as we can look to see, the truth is, we have a dire need for a "vision", God's Plan and Purpose for our life, in order that we won't certainly destroy ourselves, and perish.  Because the vast majority of people today have never experienced the fulfillment that comes with walking in God's Plan for their lives, they stumble into places where they experiment, choose false hope, and find no chance at true happiness.  All the while, everything they are truly seeking is at the feet of God.  Satan sets out to curtail the uniquely fulfilling life of God's people by leading us into a course of bondages -- taking jobs out of desperation over desire, binding our freedoms and finances, and sending us speeding down the slippery slope of self-destruction that spirals to destruction.
Jesus said, “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hides, and for joy thereof goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.(Matthew 13:44-46)
What this means is that for our gifts — indeed, all of the desires of our hearts — to be used by God, we must first die to ourselves. When we do, we enable God to redeem our life, faith, and works, as praise.  But, first, the decision is ours.  We must come to decide we want to lay down our life and things that are most dear to us, rather than holding onto those things and refusing to believe they are what God created and put on the earth for us to enjoy with Him.  We pray you will settle in your heart, today, that you are going to lay your everything at His feet and not pick it up until the time He tells you that it is in His plan for your life, and not your plan.  If we want clarity of vision, God wants to answer that deep desire of our heart, especially when we are ready to do whatever He tells us it will take for us to get it! “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.(Hosea 4:6)
      So, don't wait another day to lay your ALL at God’s feet.  Then, watch how BIG God shows Himself to be in His Plan for you, which He fashioned for Success, in your life and in the lives of people all around you.
