Every day we make tracks traveling on the path of life. Our journey in life was chosen before we entered into this world, even to our best knowledge the path that is destined for us, is unknown. We travel each and every day trying to figure out our purpose. Trying to decided what dreams and aspirations should we follow. We carefully choose our life path with great fear and trembling as not to walk down the path of failure. “Work out your own soul salvation with fear and trembling”. But because we are just imperfect human being we will make many tracks through the valley of failure. The big question we can ask ourselves is “How will we respond to our Tracks of Failure”? Will you pick yourself up and try again? Will you give up and quit? Will anger and a harden heart you will gain, and your chosen destiny which God commanded to you even before you were put into your mother’s womb will never reached. And if that is the course you will take your purpose that God put in your heart will not be revealed to you, because you stopped, and you gave up. “Jewels of Nuggets” The Devil want to “sift” you like sand. Peter, one of Jesus disciples had a problem with Faith. Peter walked on water because Jesus called him to come, so Peter were fired up with excitement and keeping his eyes on Jesus, and forgetting about the high fierce roughness of the ocean, but then Peter looked where he were, walking on the ocean in the middle of a storm, so he took his eyes of Jesus, and fear struck his heart, and he lost his Faith and started to sink in the ocean, but he called out to Jesus and Peter was saved. “Jesus said to Peter, the Devil had asked for permission to sift him like wheat”. (Luke 22:31). You don’t need to go under because of your failures, just reach your hands out and call upon Jesus. So pick your choice God or the Devil. How will you handle your tracks of failure. You have a choice. You can give into defeat and loose a vibrant life filled with great accomplishments in career, your family life and most of all your destiny to the God-given purpose for your life. We must remember the relationship that we have with Abba God, how we accepted His love by His grace and mercy in His only beloved Son, Jesus Christ. How the Father promised to always be with you, and never leave you because you are “One” connected to Him, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we can’t lose because we are connected with the King of Kings, and we are more than conquerors in Jesus Christ. “Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.” (1 John 4:13). Remember how you promised to obey His commandments as you learn how to serve, and walk with God daily, allowing Him to rule completely over all parts of your life. So when the Devil walks up to you to sift you like wheat to damage your Faith, he must flee by the Words of God. “Screaming in a loud voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I command you in the name of God not to torture me!”. “Jesus was saying to him, Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!” (Mark 5:7-8). The Devil goal is to shake you so hard that you will be shaken away from your Faith. But you must remember while the Devil is doing all of his sifting, remember that Jesus has already chosen you to a Kingdom Connection and your Faith is secure in Him. But the Devil is stupid, he has not read “Revelation” the last book in the bible where he loses, so he keep sifting you, because he want you far, far, from the action of God’s Kingdom work. “Jewels of Nuggets” Jesus said to his disciples “If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you”. (John 15:19). You are chosen “So too, at the present time there is a “REMNANT” chosen by “GRACE”. (Roman 11:5). God will always have a “Remnant” of chosen people on His side. If you are not already a member on this train, join today, it’s free, Jesus paid the price, all you do is Beleive. Confess. Repent. Now when you find yourself on the “Tracks of Failure” remember that you are a chosen vessel of God, and the Grace of God will keep you while Satan is shaking. Just remember when Satan “Sifts” you, he shakes you to damage your Faith in God and make you useless in Work for the Kingdom of God. “Jewels of Nuggets” success begin by knowing who you are and who’s you are” Well, just one of my Jewels of Nuggets for the Soul.
“Let every man or woman here, if you never hear me again, remember this, that if you wish to be great at all, you must begin where you are and with what you are. He who would be great anywhere must first be great in his own Philadelphia.”
