What do you do when you need to go upstairs? Do you go outside and try to jump up to a window to climb through? Or do you go outside, grab a ladder, put it below a window, climb up the ladder, open the window and climb inside? What if the window is locked? What do you do then? Break the glass and unlatch the lock to get in? Of course not!
You go to the stairs and take one step at a time and traverse the incline to get to the second floor. You utilize a logical and progressive strategyto arrive where you need to be. How many people try to jump to where they want to be? They would be jumping all day and never get to the second floor. How many people go outside of themselves, find a ladder and climb to the window to find it locked and they can’t get in? Do they resort to the violence of ‘breaking in’ to get to their destination?
Don’t be on the outside looking in to where you know you should be. Use the correct strategy to arrive at your destination and you will get there safely, efficiently and remain on the inside instead of being on the outside looking in. The stairs to the unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order are within you. Youdon’t have to leave your ‘house’ to find a ladder to get there. You just need to take one step at a time.
Each day is another step in unfolding your Divine purpose in Divine order. Take each step methodically one at a time. Don’t try skipping steps thinking that you will ‘get there’ quicker. You might slip and fall down the stairs. Take the logical and progressive approach and ensure your safety in arriving at your destination. It is all within you right now. Trust in that which knows more than what you believe. Be focused on getting where you want to be by feeling the joy each and every day of being there!
Know where you are going and take one day at a time to get there. Love each step knowing each one is necessary for you to ‘feel’ the progression of the perceived journey; it’s like stopping to smell the flowers on your way. Put love into every step and you will reap the joy of personal accomplishment without endangering the safety of yourself and others. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
