In life, I have observed that many are hearing but very few are actually seeing. Many have become so conversant with  words from the Bible, words of wisdom, but don’t ever see themselves in the words, especially the ones they confess with their mouths.
1 Corinthians 15:58 (KJV)  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Those who ponder in God’s word will always be a wonder to the world and not a wanderer. Why? As they begin to ponder, meditate, and put God’s word into action in their life, they catch revelations, because the holy spirit breathes on the word and he will show them what they desire ( A true picture of God’s Kingdom)
Anything you ponder on,you will walk in the path of and will never walk away from. We must learn to see our breakthrough in God’s word. It’s expedient we receive and believe his words in our heart. If you secure your future from the scriptures, it can not rupture.
Don’t let your background take you away from your secured ground. Whatever life throws to you is to help move you up.
Let’s take a lesson from the life of this donkey ” One day, a man was very angry with his donkey. He dug a pit for the donkey and threw him inside it to bury him. As the man was pouring sand on the donkey, the donkey was shaking the sand of his body, pressing the sand to rise up. He kept doing this as the man kept pouring the sands until the sand that was meant to bury him brought him out.*
Life is always an ongoing battle, but we must never be discouraged. The good news is we have God’s word to always rely on and stand firm on. Use the obstacles and challenges that life throws at you as stepping stones to fulfilling your purpose, just like Donkey.
For every dust life throws at you, shake it off with God’s word. God’s word shows us who we are, what we are, and what we will truly become.
By creation, we all have a breakthrough DNA, because we were all made in the likeness of God. If God is still on the throne and excelling, He expects the same from us, we have the same DNA with him. By redemption we are initiated for breakthrough, ” John 1:12 (KJV)  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name”
We have to continually breakthrough and not suck every punch life throws at us.
God’s word is a lighter, choose to live in this light and watch your light shine on others. Don’t let situations break you, let them make you! Keep hearing! Keep living through God’s word”
