Spiritual Sonic Booms

Don’t lose your grip on Love and Loyalty, tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. - Proverbs 3:3

If you watch film of the modern fighter aircraft on the verge of mach1, you see a kind of halo around the aircraft. It’s both mysteriously odd and beautiful. The halo encapsulates the pilot and plane, signaling a transition from sub sonic to supersonic, from resistance to release. The phenomenon parallels our Spiritual breakthroughs of the heart. We have moments of transition, of progress and of growth where God’s Holy Spirit encapsulates our commitment to Christ and raises it to new levels. But, we must persevere in our pursuit of Christ, withstand failures, try again and rally others to help us get in position to make that transition. Major breakthroughs require dogged determination.

In our request to experience power and freedom that total loyalty to Jesus provides God’s man, we are bound to encounter problems, obstacles, challenges and doubts about ever being free of our sinful and dark desires. We are peppered with passion for God mixed with doubts about ourselves, Spiritual forces and unseen obstacles. And yet our allegiance to the cross of Christ and our desire to honor that drives us forward and keeps us risking again and again for Jesus in the face of a determined opposition.

As turbulent as your commitment to Christ might be, recognize those shock waves as an indication that you’re on the verge of a new spiritual plateau. Progress may seem slow but with Gods’ help through the Holy Spirit, who guides you, the transition will happen. You zero in on the obstacles and discover God’s solutions realizing the more turbulence you sense; the closer you are to the next spiritual breakthrough.

Jesus, you have allowed me to go from resistance to release, you are so awesome. As Home Depot’s slogan says, “let’s do this.”
