During these last several weeks a few phrases have been repeated innumerable times for the point of importance and necessity. These few words, “stay home and stay safe” are now part of our common expressions. These few words are certainly essential during these unsettling times. During my daily prayers and reflections another phrase has come to my mind as well; stay in the process. As I continued to explore the value of these words a scripture verse came to me. It’s Revelation 22:13, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” I prayed and reflected about how these words connected to our present tumultuous times. What occurred to me was that the succinct scripture had very powerful implications and pertinent to the true meaning of stay in the process.
The Lord, God as the beginning (Alpha) plants the seed for His will, and as the ending (Omega) also has its completion in place. With this in mind then, we are to stay in the middle to be partakers in His plan. Some may doubt the plan itself or question our free will in the plan. I have come to understand more thoroughly, first and foremost God is good all the time, all the time God is good. Therefore, His plan and ways are also always for good.
As God plants a seed (Alpha), it is always to help us grow into His promise, “made in the image and likeness of God.” What that means is that the everyday experiences we have are designed to improve the quality of living through the quality of our loving and of being loved. This destiny is a given because God is LOVE itself. We are made in His image, and we are meant to increase our capacity for love through our choices and experiences. We are always IN THE PROCESS of becoming more likened to God through our responses to whatever life brings us. We always have free will to decide how we will respond. We can react with fear or love. It’s up to us. As we continue to learn how to trust the process by choosing love over fear we can learn the true wisdom of the Holy Spirit and thus we can see how ALL things work together for the greater good. Then we can sense the end result (Omega) as the natural evolution of all humanity becoming its true godlike identity. The end result is promised. God’s word is LAW. How long it takes for us to embrace this is up to us. The time it takes is the middle between the Alpha and the Omega. It is our free will that chooses how long it will take to bring Heaven to earth.
We have a glorious opportunity right now to accelerate the promised plan of God by choosing faith over fear, peace over panic and positive over negative in everything we do, say, think, and feel. This is a time of great power if we choose it to be so by staying in the process and remembering the end result is already promised.
Let’s choose it to be a great time of more Heaven on earth than ever before! Let’s stay in the process of making it so. If we stumble a bit, simply give it to God and speak positive declarations immediately! The Holy Spirit is eager to fulfill His plan through us, but we must continue to choose it to be so! It’s up to us.
Let’s stay in the process of becoming great love, peace and change through His Name, the Alpha and the Omega. It is our only true destiny. Let’s choose to be so, now!
P.S. “Beloved, let us love one another; for God is love.” (1 John 4: 7)
