God has been dealing with me spiritually in three areas for the last three weeks:
2) His will
Believers there is no way that three weeks straight God has pressed into me so hard about these three areas just because. This season is approaching an end. Some of us have asked, “Where is the manifestation?” These three areas have held up release for someone:
1) Disobedience is vast but sometimes subtle. God even showed me how we can have thoughts that have become fortresses in our minds. If God is our fortress and strong tower, our imaginations and thoughts that are higher than God have replaced God in our minds. Cast those thoughts down. Having high thoughts is disobedience.
2) His will is the only will in the life of a believer. He wants us to a point at which we have thrown out “my will” completely. We are digging our heels in trying to make situations work and happen for ourselves. He wants us so sold out that we believe, “God, even if you don’t do anything else (prosper, reconcile the relationship, promote, heal my body), I just want your will.” He wants to move forward but you’re holding up progress with “my will” instead of “thy will.”
3) Humility is crucial. Pride can cause you to fall before God can solidify your elevation. Let Him purge you. Let Him get all the pride out before you mess it all up. He says humble yourself before Him and He will elevate you in due season. Have you humbled yourself yet? I heard myself describing how I document my work for my evaluation the other day and God said as plainly as daylight, “Tone that down.” Too much “I, I, I” caused Lucifer to be thrown out of heaven. Be careful of pride. It is sneaky and subtle.
You’ve asked God why hasn’t “it” happened yet…Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you why your due season has been delayed. Is it disobedience, not surrendering to His will, or pride? Dr. J.
