You Can't Plan It Out But You Can Get In The River

You Can’t Plan It Out But You Can Get In The River

The journey of holiness is not one of arriving, it’s simply staying in the river.

Stop worrying about making it to “holiness” as if it’s a destination on the map. Your arrival isn’t dependent on you doing or not doing something. It’s simply yielding to the river that surrounds you.

What’s the river? God.

Why must we trust Him for our holiness? He knows the way and He’s the one who makes us holy.

You can’t push (don’t do) something to move the river nor can you pull (do) something to make the river move. You can only stay in the water and let the current move you downstream. You MUST trust the river.

The flow of the river doesn’t care if you’re perfect. The flow of the river doesn’t care if you’re right. The flow of the river doesn’t care about your denominational affiliation. The river only cares about you getting in and enjoying the ride.

So, what’s your to-do list for holiness?

  1. Get in the river.
  2. Trust the river.
  3. Stay in the river.

I hope I didn’t lose you in the river metaphor. I thought it was just a decent one to get my thought across.

Live

To live by the faith of the son of God means to live in the consciousness of the same sonship that Jesus enjoys.

Francois Du Toit

If I would’ve read this more than 2 years ago, I wouldn’t have believed it. Not because it isn’t true but because I didn’t have a proper view of my identity.

There are several scriptures that can back this thought up.

  • 1 John 4:17
  • Ephesians 2:6
  • Galatians 2:20
  • Romans 6:5-11

The idea is to stay aware of who you are and who He is.

Unending Love

Another reason perfect love is difficult to comprehend is that it has no end. Since there is no human basis for its beginning, there’s nothing we can do to end it. It’s unending love. God’s perfect love is eternal love. It can’t be earned by what you do nor forfeited by what you don’t do. You can choose to receive it, or you can choose to ignore it, but you can’t end it. God will not force you to enjoy his love, but you can’t stop him from offering it.
