Listen! This season requires us to stretch. We have to stretch our eyes to see in the spiritual realm which requires 3-G vision (God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit). We’re stretching beyond surviving into thriving while God exceeds our expectations. Those of us who believe God are called to help those who do not. When you let God stretch your faith to believe Him for abundance, God will use you to bless those who can’t receive abundance in their spirit. When you allow God to stretch your vision, God will enlarge your territory to expand His kingdom through you. When you allow God to stretch your goals from worldly goals to kingdom goals, God will elevate you to elevate Him. S T R E T C H. I’m tired of “taking life as it comes.” I’m in
S T R E T C H mode. It’s stretching season. Pull me as far as You need to pull me Lord. I W I L L S T R E T C H. Dr.J.
We’ve been asking God to birth something in our lives this season. We have experienced a drought, an unproductive season, and a barren season. Nothing is fruitful! Everyone else around us is reaping a harvest. We are so tired of waiting to birth the promise God has on the inside of us.
God wants to know what will we do with it when He births it?
Is birth for us to become famous or for us to use the birth of promise to build the kingdom of God?
If it’s the former, dedicate your promise to Him right now. Tell God you will use it for His glory. If it’s for your glory, ask God to come in right now and change your heart. Say, “If you bless me with the promise (marriage, business, ministry, shelter for women, mentor program, school, job- whatever God has shown you), then I will dedicate it to you O God.” So barren season is over. This is a season of birth and new beginnings in the name of Jesus. Dr.J.
1 Samuel 1:10-11, 20 NIV “In her deep anguish Hannah prayed to the Lord, weeping bitterly. And she made a vow, saying, “ Lord Almighty, if you will only look on your servant’s misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the Lord for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head. So in the course of time Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, saying, ‘Because I asked the Lord for him.'”
Are there some things that you “said” you gave to God? Are there situations that you “said” you were going to trust God to handle? Every now and then though you feel this weight and heaviness in your chest. Once in a while you feel a spirit of heaviness or sadness. You also feel anxiety in an overwhelming sense. Well maybe you really did give it to God but at some point- in your mind, heart, or spirit – you picked it back up…again. And I get it…
Some of the things we have to deal with are so grave, disheartening, serious, and severe that when we don’t “see” God moving in the natural realm, we pick it back up…again. When we “look” at the magnitude of our situations in the natural, we know we can’t do anything about it. So we need to cast down the imaginations and high thoughts. We need to cast out the sickness of fear in our hearts. And we need to renounce the spirit of heaviness. We have to fight with prayer and hearing the Word aloud. We have to open up our mouths and make professions of the Word of God. But first, we have to give it back to God…again. Cheating spouses, no spouse, wayward child, addictions, childhood abuse, diseases passed down or transmitted, debt, money issues, incest, and job issues – God can handle it. Please believe. Dr.J.

The situation and the person hurt you badly. Every time you think about it, you get a bitter taste in your spirit. The enemy uses bitterness to tie us to the hurt. The devil uses bitterness to keep us from forgiving. He uses bitterness to stunt our growth and our progress. So we begin to relive the bitter moment over and over again. The enemy deceives us into believing that we can’t squeeze out the last drop of bitterness and be healed and made whole. Satan is always lying. The divorce, loss, infidelity, slander, betrayal, lies, sexual violation, and disease may have lasting effects and permanent scars but the bitterness doesn’t have to last. The hurt doesn’t have to last. The anger doesn’t have to last. Bitterness destroys us from the inside out. God will heal us from our hurts. Then, we will engage the enemy and renounce the spirit of bitterness before it surfaces. We cut bitterness off at the root in Jesus’s name. Through the power of the Holy Spirit and in the authority of the name of Jesus, I renounce the spirit of bitterness. Holy Spirit fill us now with Your sweet, sweet Spirit in this place. Dr.J.

If I move beyond today in my mind, tomorrow can be overwhelming to me. The spirit of anxiety creeps in when we look past today, too far ahead. See, when we look up to God, He gives us directions about what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. He gives us our “next steps.” I dare you to look up TODAY. Ask God to help you in your situation TODAY. Ask God to meet your need TODAY. Ask God to bless you and your family TODAY. Ask God to help you in your finances TODAY. Ask God to give you a reprieve TODAY. Ask God for a divine delay TODAY. Ask God to protect you from your enemies TODAY. Ask God to help you make decisions aligned to His Word TODAY.
We only get that sick anxious, worrying spirit when we’ve allowed the enemy to show us scenes in our heads about tomorrow, next month, and next year. Shut the devil’s movie down. Don’t look ahead. Look up. All the direction and help you need comes from up there. Dr.J.
