September is a great month and I love its arrival. The intensity of summer’s heat ends in this month and the mornings are cool with the days still possessing warmth of fall’s arrival. It mirrors spring where the opposite happens with winter’s intensity of the cold. Spring will always be my favorite, but fall comes in next.
This morning’s devotion brought me face to face with the verse God gave me in Habakkuk 3:19. I’ve written about it a couple of times. Oswald Chambers devotion this morning was about Paul selling out totally to Christ’s purpose for his life. Galatians 2:20 says “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me…” Paul thought he was doing the work of God only to find out he was totally wrong. When he understood this he went about face with his life and commitment to now serving Christ–the Son of God. Paul’s beliefs were completely off base just as mine were for so long. Beliefs were one of these high places talked about in my verse. But, God has fully shown me His Truth.
God has also shown me other high places I believed. These are things like my value, my sexuality, my differences from dad and my brothers as it comes to areas of giftedness. My identity is being aligned with God’s purpose in creating me. God has been working on these areas for quite some time with me, and I’m seeing the truth of this verse today: “…He makes my feet like hind’s feet and will make me to walk and make progress upon my high places.” Thank you Father!
