Walking with Christ has its ups and downs. The downs are the times our flesh convinces us that it’s much stronger than the spirit God gave us. But no, it is not. The downs are when our perception and reality are so stuck in this present world, so we never feel or seem satisfied. The ups are experiencing the overwhelming feeling and reality of True Freedom in Christ Jesus.
The ups are when we resist our own desires, trade them in for the things of the spirit, and watch the ways of Jesus become ours.
My friend, that walk is difficult, and God did not design us to walk it alone.
I want to give people an easy guide to abide by to help them know when they are doing everything physically possible and that now its just time to wait on God’s supernatural healing and trust that He is bringing it, right then and there. Let’s dive into them. These are the five things we need to thrive mentally, spiritually, and emotionally in Christ:
This is so important! Especially for all my introverts and my extroverts that are being stubborn. It’s okay, there’s grace, but don’t keep tugging on this string when you know the lord has called you to assemble. Hebrews 10:24-25 “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” There is healing when we come together as one. God moves powerfully and strongly in your quiet time alone with Him but God also works in community; "Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them,” (Matthew 18:19-21).
I truly believe that a person will not walk in their true full calling without experiencing community. Yes, there can be tension and some push back from people but know God has called you for community. Create healthy boundaries with the Lord and listen to what He is saying.
You will find the people He specifically appointed to be in your life!
