Take flight and soar into your purpose and destiny from God’s runway! Our beginning may not have been a great start. Some of us may have done things in the past which we find too difficult to think about or deal with, but our ending does not have to be determined by our past. There is grace, power, mercy, love, ready and waiting for us. There is what I call, a spiritual runway, which is built by God for all of us. It has already been provided for us, it is always there, waiting for us to simply ask and take the step towards victory and true freedom. It has always been and always will be, ageless, unchanging, and indestructible. It is anchored in God, waiting for us to take flight into our purpose and destiny.
There are different types of man-made runways all over the world. Some point in the same direction and they are called parallel runways. However, this God-made runway I am writing about has no parallels in its unique strength, power, and capacity. It recognizes each and every one of us, and adjusts to us, meeting us at our point of need and taking into consideration the depth of our wounds. It adjusts itself according to our condition without losing its unique power, grace, and love for us. It recognizes that we are all different and that we all need different levels and platforms from which to take flight.
This runway does not provide a cookie-cutter, one-size fits-all platform. It is intentionally customized according to our needs, gifts, and purpose, without loving any of us more than another, but covering us all under the umbrella of grace and mercy. With this runway, we do not need to be skeptical about it wavering. It is not man-made, thus it does not change on us. It remains the same, yesterday, today, and forever. It is not two-faced, or encumbered with hidden cracks. On the contrary, it is whole, divine. This runway is stable, unbendable, unbreakable, and unchanging, but will adjust to assist us within our current situation. In its divinity, it knows us by nature. We cannot fool it, as it knows how heavy or light we are. While other runways are inconsistent, and require us to be a certain type of weight, this runway says, “Come as you are.”
Whether the weather is stable or unstable, peaceful or raging, calm or filled with turbulence, this runway remains unshakable. This runway is infallible, and strong enough to withstand any type of stress or temperature. It will not melt or change shape under pressure because it cannot be constrained or intimidated by any condition, situation, or circumstance. It has one purpose, one goal, and that is to assist us into taking flight into our unique destinies. It carries us when we are ready to take flight on our maiden voyage. It does not condemn us when we are back to try again, if we didn’t complete the first take off.
It will not impede you, or allow anything or anyone from stopping or blocking you. It knows when you are ready to glide, and when you drift and come back. It might not look like what we are used to, but that is because it is not. It is precise. It is focused on us, where we need to go and where we need to be. Its lights never go out and will never have a power failure.
This runway’s foundation can and will withstand anything for our sakes. Formed of the materials of grace, power, forgiveness, mercy, love, peace, joy, strength, and wisdom, it will not wear out. Its parts do not need to be patched up, and do not need to be replaced! Its surface is always even and dependable, no cracks (seen or unseen) in this foundation.
This runway does not need permission from anyone to allow us to take off, but instead has been patiently waiting for us to have faith and take flight into our destiny and purpose. It takes into account our condition and our situation before it carries us, maximizing our potential and speed to take flight. It is constant and consistent for all of us, filled with unconditional love to carry us over to the other side, not where the grass is falsely greener, but where there is true success, true victory, and true peace. We can take off from it in any weather conditions. It carries divine patience for us, taking us however far we need to crawl, run, or push to take flight, however long it takes. Try God’s runway!
