Step up

By Ngozi Ngadi

God’s desire for you is that His purpose be fulfilled in your lives. He has given you dominion over the earth to be fruitful and multiply.  He has given you authority to rule over nations, to possess the land for Christ that His glory will fill the earth.  Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:28 NKJV

It is time to step up in the assignments He has called you to complete. Many are called but few are chosen, He has chosen you specifically for His works not because of your perfection or righteousness. You must not be perfect to be accepted , God wants you to come just as you are then He will work your lives out as you walk with Him every step of way.

It is time to step up, it is time to increase the tempo and there is no time to waste.  We are limited to time because we work under a 365days calender a year (chronos).  But the Lord is not restricted to time because He has time in His hands.  For you, a thousand years are as a passing day, as brief as a few night hours Psalm 90:4 NLT.  It time to understand the season you are in and flow in it because it is only for an opportune moment.  Which season are you in? Are you in a season of sowing or reaping, season of planting or growth? Ecclesiastes 3 states there’s an opportune time for everything under the earth and  He has made everything beautiful in its time.

The Lord is doing a new thing in your life, embrace the new (Isaiah 43:18-19).   The old is past and the new is here, embrace the new.  It is time to get rid of the old and move up the ladder.  Step up the ladder, forgetting what lies behind and keep  pressing forward to what lies ahead.

The Lord uses the foolish things of this world and makes them wise, all you need to do is make yourself available for the Lord to use you  (1 Corinthians 1:27).  Sometimes the Lord stretches us so much that we feel like breaking but He knows how much we can bear. He knows our limit and  would not allow us to be tempted beyond our limit.  No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it  1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV.

Stepping out of my comfort zone and embracing the new was a great challenge for me because I could not comprehend how He could use a broken, rejected and crushed lady like me.  When I said YES, I am available, use me Lord then He turned my life completely around for the best.  Every step I take up the ladder, my fears of the unknown tries to creep in but I fix my eyes on the Lord and surround myself with friends that lift me up instead of putting me down.  In my weaknesses I keep pressing on,  when I am down I go the Rock of my salvation who is able to carry me through.  It’s not easy I must say but one thing I know is He will never leave nor forsake me.
