Sometimes in life, we get overwhelmed. It’s not a character flaw; we find ourselves in the weeds. When it happens, some quick techniques can help you get back to clear, and if you read through this email, I’ll tell you how to step out of the fog faster and how to make it a long time between these times of confusion.

I’ve learned through trial and error where the fog comes from, the fastest way out of it, and now I’m learning how to prevent it from returning. I’m going to give it all away right here in this email. No catch. No trick. Just valuable content delivered to your inbox. Why? Because I believe if I provide value upfront, eventually, the money will follow.

Beating the Fog:

We think the fog blocks our vision, but in truth, our lack of vision brings on the fog. All good things come from the father of light (James 1:17). Our purpose is to be conformed to the image of Christ (Romans 8:29). All of nature groans in eager expectation for the sons and daughters of God to be revealed (Romans 8:19). Jesus proclaimed that the Kingdom of God was close and prayed that God’s will would be done here as it was in heaven ( Luke 17:21, Matt 3:2, Matt 6:10).

What do these verses describe? A flow of God’s Kingdom through us into the world.

What needs to happen for that to be our reality? Jesus said he came that we may have life abundantly (John 10:10). If you have accepted Christ in your heart, then you have access to Christ 24/7 simply by asking. It’s okay to get confused. It’s not okay to stay confused. Just ask Jesus, he’s not confused. I guarantee it.

So why do believers get fogged? Now that’s the question!

You see, God gave us free will, which is why everything takes faith. God can’t do anything for us that we don’t believe he can, because it would violate our freedom of choice. Faith is a supernatural act. As human beings, we don’t assume we’ll ever have something we’ve never seen happen. But faith can grow like a muscle. David had faith he could defeat Goliath because he’d already defeated a lion and a bear.

We get fogged in when we become disconnected from our hearts. If we’re not receiving supernatural faith, then we pray those wimpy prayers—begging God if he cares for us, can he please fix X, Y, or Z. That’s not how God wants to interact with us. He often does, but that’s not his heart.

Jesus often complained that his disciples weren’t ready for meat; they still needed milk. God intends us to be a conduit of his clarity. Not only can we be free of the fog, but we can also be a part of chasing the fog away from those around us.

So how do I make staying out of the fog, virtually automatic?

Being a conduit of God’s clarity takes an understanding of your own identity. You must first receive God’s picture of who you are. Then you can reformat the areas of your life, like your relationships, your health, and your career. Once your real identity is guiding you, your actions will keep you from getting stuck in a double-mind, where you feel damned if you do & damned if you don’t.

Which path should you take? The one that is most in line with your God-given destiny. The one that brings you closer to God. Often, the one that feels most risky. To have confidence that your decision-making is correct, you either need a word of knowledge from God about that specific situation (milk), or you need an understanding of your life’s purpose (meat).
