A couple of years ago we were invited to go on a cruise. This would require a passport for us as the ports along the way were in other countries. It also required that we get official copies of our birth certificates, which we did. We never got around to getting the passport and as it turns out we didn’t end up going on the cruise either. No matter where we go in this season, if we cross a border we will need a passport. Without it we are stuck here.
Oh beloved, God has invited you to take a trip with Him. Fortunately you have your papers ready. They are God breathed. The only credentials you will ever need to flow with the Father is Jesus. It’s not enough to know about Him though. You must know Him personally. Your birth certificate is the Cross and accepting the atonement of Christ, who died in your place, rose on your behalf and sits at the right hand of the Father interceding for you always.
God has a destiny for you. A revelation of His love is the beginning. A realization that you are not your own is there as well. Your passport won’t say your own name – it will say Jesus. And the seal will be the Blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony. Don’t fear where God wants to take you. He’s going to be with you all the way. Through valleys, through floods, through hardships, through persecutions and more. He is also going to take all the things you’ve been through and turn them into a testimony about Himself!
And as you travel here or afar, you are going to be the Shining Example of His Glory! Nothing is wasted, no page is left blank, no access is denied you in the Spirit! You can have it all and you can experience all the goodness of God. You have been granted free reign in the Kingdom of God to walk in authority, to stand in power, to be full of wisdom and to go where He sends you!
God loves you and He’s for you! Passports can get you around the world but only Jesus can get you save, sealed, healed, delivered, set free and empowered to live for Him as an Ambassador of Holy Spirit! Rejoice that your destiny is settled and your way is paid as you live, move and have your being totally in Him!
I Peter 1:21 Through Him you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him, and so your faith and hope are in God. NIV
Titus 2:14 Who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.
Matthew 9:9 As Jesus was walking along, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at his tax collector’s booth. “Follow me and be my disciple,” Jesus said to him. So Matthew got up and followed Him.
