God has a way of purging any way. He has a way of allowing things to seem as if they have completely fallen apart so He can show you He is still God. If they left, they probably weren’t meant to be connected with you any way. If it fell apart, God wants to give you something better. My Bishop says, “Nothing is ‘lost’ in the kingdom.” This is restoration season. This is rebuilding season. How much tenacity do you have? How much spiritual muscle to you have? You can’t cry over what you thought you lost. For a believer, to “lose” is to “gain.” Think about a bigger and a better structure. Think about a stronger team. Think about your vision and your mission. Think about what makes you happy. What kind of people do you need around you? Consider what will advance the kingdom of God first this time and rebuild. Yes. Just like that. If you built without the Master Builder, you built in vain. So, this time, allow Him to be the foundation. Allow HIM to chose your team. Allow Him to whisper the blue print. Allow Him to strengthen you. Rebuild. Bigger. Better. Stronger. More Prosperous. But no matter what don’t quit. Rebuild. Now let’s go!
People, even friends and family, will withhold their praise from you for various reasons. They will support people in other towns, cities, states, and countries doing the EXACT same thing you do and won’t support you. People are fickle like that. So if you wait around on people to applaud you or affirm you, you will NEVER consistently walk out your purpose. They will clap with you one day and pretend they don’t see you the next. When God affirms you – “This is my daughter, in whom I am well pleased” – then you have to believe what He says and move forward in that. Some of us have been stuck and stagnant because we look for the applause. You better start that business, do your ministry, apply for that promotion, buy that mansion God showed you, get that luxury car, takeover that region. It’s time for you to dominate. Don’t wait for another person to tell you “good job.” God has spoken. Now let’s go!
I felt the pull and it was so strong yesterday. I started prophesying it at church. Then God had me to blow and usher the winds. Now you can ride with the winds if you believe or you can fight against it if you don’t agree or you can let them pass you by if you don’t believe. But I have caught this wind. It’s fresh because it has to be to blow what’s old and dead and stale out of our lives this season. It’s fresh because God is doing something new; can’t you perceive it? It’s fresh because we need a new start for where God is taking us. What He is doing is different from anything He has done in our lives before. It doesn’t line up with rules or the world’s standards. It’s God. It’s blowing in our direction right now. The pull is strong. Get ready for the shift. Now let’s go!
Tell yourself the truth. “I’m destined for greater.” Monitor every word you speak to, about, and inside your “self.” You have to make a spiritual decision not to tell yourself another negative word. I challenge you to jot down what you tell yourself today and assess whether or not you’re speaking “life” or “death.” We can’t figure out why we’re stuck. We have talked ourselves out of moving forward. “I’m not good enough. I’m not smart enough. I don’t have enough. I can’t make it. I don’t feel good. I don’t feel like it. I can’t get up. No one will accept me. People may reject my ideas. No one will buy it. People don’t have money to support me.” Stop it now! Start telling yourself the truth – God’s Word. If God said it, that settles it. You are destined for greater. He foreknew you, formed you before you were formed. He established a great purpose for you. But you just have to tell yourself the truth! Now let’s go!
Use what you have. It’s time to show up. Push past your feelings, your circumstances, the naysayers, and negative thoughts and move. You feel it on the inside. You ask, “Is there more than life to this?” But “feelings” will have you sleep on yourself. “Feelings” will make you complacent. “Feelings” will cause you to give up. “Feelings” fluctuate but your action toward your purpose cannot. This is real. Your dreams are real. Your goals are real. It’s time for you to realize them all. We can’t dart in and out of purpose this season. You have what you need inside of you. Don’t put this all on God. You’ve got to show up and show out. Now Let’s go!
