When life is calling you to go beyond the sure

Anything kept in captivity can only growas much as its cage will allow. If we aren't walking out

 

 

I woke up this morning singing this line of the song …

“Further and further my heart moves away from the shore”…

Almost immediately it came to my mind the play on the word SHORE to SURE…

Further and further my heart moves away from the sure/certain/seen/stuff/right-now/head knowledge…
Because He’s calling us to go further, deeper; into the unknown where faith is our focus and trust is our anchor and His purpose is why and His breath is ours and His Holy Spirit (voice) is our compass • • •

Could we be willing to allow God to redefine who we are? Could we be willing to trust Him beyond the limits, parameters and cages we’ve lived in?

We all learn to live by the rules of our captivity. Our habits are comforting, even if they keep us from God’s best. We often self-soothe with the things that hold us in bondage. They are the things, habits or people we go to instead of relying solely on the Lord. – Hayley Morgan Wild and Free: A Hope-filled anthem for the woman who feels she is both too much and never enough.

This month our FOCUS is on redefining your life and living out the (capital T) Truth of who God says you are vs. the (little t) truth of circumstance, whispers, deception and labels we’ve either placed on ourselves or life has decided it wants us to live under and DEFINE us. 
First, let’s establish what it means to define something.

*Define

DEFINE, verb transitive [Latin To end, to limit, from finis, end.]

1. To determine or describe the end or limit; as, to define the extent of a kingdom or country.

2. To determine with precision; to ascertain; as, to define the limits of a kingdom.

3. To mark the limit; to circumscribe; to bound.

4. To determine or ascertain the extent of the meaning of a word; to ascertain the signification of a term; to explain what a word is understood to express; as, to define the words, virtue, courage, belief, or charity.

5. To describe; to ascertain or explain the distinctive properties or circumstances of a thing; as, to define a line or an angle.

DEFINE, verb intransitive To determine; to decide.

 

Now, let’s talk about that word SURE (further and further my heart moves away from the shore/sure)

 

*SURE, adjective shure. [Latin assevero, and to be connected with swear, and perhaps with Latin verus; s being the remains of a prefix.]

1. Certain; unfailing; infallible.

The testimony of the Lord is sure Psalms 19:7.

We have also a more sure word of prophecy. 2 Peter 1:10.

2. Certainly knowing, or having full confidence.

We are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth– Romans 2:2.

Now we are sure that thou knowest all things. John 16:30.

3. Certain; safe; firm; permanent.

Thy kingdom shall be sure to thee. Daniel 4:26.

4. Firm; stable; steady; not liable to failure, loss or change; as a sure covenant. 2 Samuel 23:5. Nehemiah 9:38. Isaiah 28:16.

The Lord will make my lord a sure house. 1 Samuel 25:28.

So we say, to stand sure to be sure of foot.

5. Certain of obtaining or of retaining; as, to be sure of game; to be sure of success; to be sure of life or health.

6. Strong; secure; not liable to be broken or disturbed.

Go your way, make it as sure as ye can. Math.27.

7. Certain; not liable to failure. The income is sure

To be sure or be sure certainly. Shall you go? be sure I shall.

Either we are adrift in chaos or we are individuals, created, loved, upheld and placed purposefully, exactly where we are. Can you believe that? Can you trust God for that? – Elisabeth Elliot

Beyond the shore.

 

In Over My Head – Bethel Music featuring Jenn Johnson
Would you come and tear down the boxes that I have tried to put You in

Let love come teach me who You are again

Would you take me back to the place where my heart was only about You

And all I wanted was just to be with You

Come and do whatever You want to
And further and further my heart moves away from the shore

Whatever it looks like, whatever may come I am Yours

And further and further my heart moves away from the shore

Whatever it looks like, whatever may come I am Yours
Then You crash over me and I’ve lost control but I’m free

I’m going under, I’m in over my head

Then you crash over me, and that’s where You want me to be

I’m going under, I’m in over my head

Whether I sink, whether I swim

It makes no difference when I’m beautifully in over my head

Whether I sink, whether I swim

It makes no difference when I’m beautifully in over my head • • •

 

I just wanted to encourage you to keep being a threat to the enemy, he knows he can’t stop you but if he can discourage you by throwing arrows, trust that he’s gonna throw them.
The reason we train & discipline ourselves is so that we can both dodge the arrows and catch them; while never taking our eyes off the cross.

And with the strength & power we’ve been given, by and through the Holy Spirit; we will take off the head of every giant!

Suit up friends this ain’t a friendly game of duck duck goose!

A playlist to inspire going deeper.
