Allow God to be your Lifeline( a thing on which someone or something depends or which provides a means of escape from a difficult situation.)
In this case we will turn that word (thing) into someone.
That someone you latch on to for dear life as you’re being pulled from death to life (John 5:24) “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
Listen, there is no Purpose, direction, or hope without Him. (John 15:5) “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
Can’t you see that that’s so evident in the lives of most people today? That they don’t have Jesus?
There lives are on display being seen as an open book without the realization of it.
(Hebrews 4:13)Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.
Sinners who walk this earth without Him, has a certain aura (a supposed emanation surrounding the body of a living creature and regarded as an essential part of the individual) about them that’s not hard to notice or pick up in the Spirit.
We all know that the wages of sin is death;
This is why (ALL) sinners must die, because sin separates us from God.
Any separation from the Main Source of Life is Spiritual death, PERIOD!
Anyone who is Spiritually dead and seperated from God, Is someone walking around drowning in their own raging waters of hopelessness, with no inner Joy in sight…. Ephesians 2:1 -10 please read !!
They don’t know where they belong, or what they’re suppose to be doing….and that’s only because they are not hooked up to the Main Source which is the God Himself …(John 8:47)Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”
Being Connected to anyone or anything other than God is just you existing…..
That lifeline, which is God, wants you to do more than just exist. He wants you to Rule and Reign in Jesus name!!!
(Romans 5:17)For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)
The only way to operate efficiently in this life for God, is by being connected to Him.
This connection enables you to hear His voice, walk in His plan, use your authority in His name, resist the devil, and maintain your joy,peace, and prosperity……but, only if you stay connected (John 15:4-5) Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.
Getting connected and staying connected to the One and only Main Source, is by you reading and meditating on His Word, praying without ceasing, being obedient to His every Word, and spending as much quality time with Him then you do anything else (Proverbs 3:6) In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
Its when you stop everything else you’re doing, and focus solely on God – reading, meditating, praying( in natural tongue, and spiritual), praising, & worshipping.
Just Glorifying Him for who He is and not only for what He does!!! (Isaiah 43:7) They are my own people, and I created them to bring me glory.”(1 Corinthians 10:31 So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
God is the only One that knows your true purpose, and what He created you for. So! how do you intend on finding that out without Him??(Psalms 57:2) I cry out to God Most High, to God who will fulfill his purpose for me.(Psalms 139:16)Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were appointed for me, When as yet there was not one of them [even taking shape].
Long story short, I can remember living like that once upon a time.
Have you ever had that feeling that you needed something, or that something was missing? And you wandered around from one thing, or man/woman to the other, looking for it?
You Too! yes you, trying to find ways, or things, you thought could fill that void, like ( the opposite sex, food, alcohol, drugs etc…) just to locate that “Something”?
And in all actuality it was our hearts crying out for what we really needed ….and that was God!
Why do I say God?? because He’s the only One that can fill that void in our soul.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,( for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Yeah, that was me! I was searching and seeking all the wrong avenues…. trying to find my purpose of, “why I was here” and “who I was”….
I would always say to “myself”, “I know it’s far more for me in this life than what I’m doing right now”(working, coming home, partying on the weekends, going to Church occasionally, and repeating the cycle, over and over again…
I knew God had designed me on purpose, for a purpose, which was His purpose.
I knew that deeper desire within me was to seek more of Him on every level, yes, even including taking Church attendance serious in my adulthood. And, I have to admit, in the begining I just wanted to see how it would make me feel (funny right)? Cause I learned real quick that my seeking God had nothing to do with a feeling, but it was so much more deeper than that…It was about becoming personable ( One)with Him.
He wanted to know me on a more personal level and I, somewhere deep down inside longed that also as well.
I knew that someone was praying for me mercifully, cause this desire of wanting more of God just wouldn’t let me alone, it was as if it came from out of nowhere (at least that’s what I thought) but little did I know, it was always in me.
For sure, when my siblings and I were younger, we had to go to church and bible study. But, were we there to learn, “No” we were just there because we had to go, and we knew there would be a treat at the end of service (truth be told).
Needless to say….I guess it all took root somewhere on the inside of me, for me to want more ( right )?
Well!! Unfortunately Years later, still doing things I knew didn’t bring God honor or joy and even disappointing myself…
I had to make up in my mind, “you got to take this serious,” if you want more outta life.”(Romans 12:2)Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.
I can honestly say that I actually didn’t (really) get serious about my walk (with God) until after I got married, and the Lord said to me, “your purpose is in Me”, and until you make a decision to choose “Me”, every day and take your relationship with “Me” serious, You’ll never be free.”
He said, “make a choice”…..And I did….I chose Him above all else, including my (husband and children).
So, how do you allow God to become your Lifeline??There’s only one way….by accepting Jesus!!
And, when you do that, He becomes your Lifeguard( Savior) and the Holy Spirit becomes your (Anchor)
So, make that choice to draw closer to Him, crave Him, desire Him, surrender to Him and His way of doing things and He will become that pattern in your life you need to model ….
Understand it like this, “the lifeline pulls you out of your drowning, while the lifeguard keeps you from having to experience drowning ever again….”
But!! You have to know that this experience is spiritual and nothing about the physical can relate to it.
(Hebrews 6:19)It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God.
All that’s connected to Him is connected to us, and this is what makes Him our lifeline!!
A physical lifeline is something we can depend on to provide a means of escape. But, we are talking about a Spiritual Lifeline, a (Someone).
The only someone that can bring you a freedom you’ll never know unless you are connected to Him….
And, the purpose of our life points back to Him… No matter where we are, what we’re doing, or who we’re with.
That’s perfect alignment with Godly purpose….
