“Welcome back to reality” was what a friend said to me a day after returning back from Kenya.
I had gone to Kenya for about two weeks and it was hard going to a place that is improving and growing
while things at home are stagnant.
Kenya is growing rapidly and stuff works which is the total opposite in my country.
Anyway, the day after my return one of my friends said “welcome back to reality”
I was really bothered by that statement. When he saw my resistance he said it again. I rejected his
I didn’t want to make the circumstances in my country my reality.
Before I went to Kenya had I made them a reality? Maybe I did but I wanted that to change.
What’s your reality? Is it in line with what God promised you or is it something entirely different?
We are constantly being pushed to take on a reality that is not what God has for us. We have settled
for a reality that is way below the level God would have us live at.
Think about the man who was crippled for 38 years (John 5:1-17). What was his reality? Did he ever see himself
healed in his reality?
Was hopelessness his reality?
We need to take a deeper look at the reality we live by. Who gave us the reality we are currently living by?
It’s so easy to adopt a way of thinking, a way of speaking, a way of living.
The good news is this, the reality we are living by can change.
That’s what happened to the man who was crippled. For 38 years he was living in a reality that
was not God’s reality. God wanted him healed and living a full life.
The enemy on the other hand wanted him bound. he wanted him living in hopelessness.
But Jesus came and changed his reality.
We have hope friends.
You don’t have to accept the reality you are living by today.
The limitations people have put on you don’t have to be your reality.
The circumstances you live in don’t have to be your reality.
God can and wants you to live by His truth. His truth is liberating. His truth is full of life,
joy, peace and so much more goodness.
What is your reality? Let God determine what your reality is.
There is so much He has in store for you.
Here, across the world in Canada, I can’t say I know first hand what your country is experiencing, but yes! change can happen. And in the right direction. May God keep that flame of hope that keeps you moving to create the changes He has for you and all who you influence! Your words influence me across the oceans…
Thank you so much for those kind words Lynn. I have hope that God is with me and taking me to a new place.
And God bless you. Enjoy your weekend!
