John 10:4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.
You pursue the Good Shepherd. We pursue God for relationship. We don’t live results Christianity.
Know He is Father and you are His child
Galatians 4:6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”
The Spirit of Jesus lives in you and it longs for Father. We are living our inheritance now. We don’t have to wait for our inheritance.
Father waits for you in the secret place
Matthew 6:6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
Somethings can only be found in one place – the secret place. But sometimes we ignore the secret place.
Isaiah 49:1-3 Listen to this, everyone—near and far: The Eternal One singled me out, even before I was born. He called me and named me when I was still in my mother’s belly. Even then, God was preparing my mouth to speak like a sharp sword. He kept my purpose quiet, kept me safe in the shadow of His hand, He crafted me into a sharp-tipped arrow and tucked me away in His quiver; God said to me, “You are My servant, Israel. Through you, I will be glorified.”
You were called in mother’s womb, but you won’t find your purpose until you get into the secret place. Then He will craft you in character before He launches you into destiny. Father requires you have impact. He develops that in the secret place.
David knew what it meant to be in the secret place – Psalm 91.
