Time to Align
Time to Align
How are you doing today beloved? “Peace, Be Still” is what the Lord is saying to us. This storm will pass and we would be much better for it.
As the world comes to terms with its reset, what are you resetting in your life?
In the time we have stayed at home, the explosion of the social media platforms has been massive and is creating in its path a heightened need to ‘live the life’ or pretend you are doing so. Many messages that hit us in a day can create confusion around one’s life journey and faith in God’s ability to walk you through it. Being frustrated and consequently, depressed with life has become a reality with so many believers and people. It’s really easy to get frustrated with life especially if one is comparing one’s life with others. Many are walking in this darkness without knowing it. The only solution to this is getting into an alignment with our Father. We must align with God to live life abundantly (which means to live life to full) in Christ Jesus. When we align with God, we choose His way over the ways of the world even when we don’t understand them.
Our text is taken from Isaiah 42:16
"I will lead the blind by a way they do not know, In paths they do not know I will guide them I will make darkness into light before them And rugged places into plains These are the things I will do, And I will not leave them undone."
Alignment is defined as ‘a position of agreement or alliance’, it is also ‘an arrangement in correct relative positions’, ‘a rate or course’ or a ‘linear arrangement’. This allows me define being in alignment with God as ‘coming into a position of agreement with God. It is going into an alliance with Him, allowing Him arrange our route in the correct positions.
Living in alignment with God builds a life of trust and belief in God’s sovereignty over our lives, we live a thought life that is in agreement with his thoughts towards us (His words), we are allies with Him in the fight for souls for the Kingdom of light and in the battles of life that we face, we know that He is arranging and putting our lives in order, He is routing our Journey with Purpose and power.
How do we align or get re-aligned with God?
First place to start is in prayer- “Let Your Will be done”. Surrender your life to God
Give everything over to God and let Him speak to you on aligning with Him
In this time of Isolation, find God and realign.
Prayer: Lord I want to align with you today and every day of my life
Charge for the week: Prayerfully reflect and write down where you have mis-alignments with the Father.

God’s Peace and Love
