Procrastination is a serious spiritual crime. Why? Because it means that we “know” that Jehovah tasked us to do something and we’re taking our time in doing it. Procrastination is slow disobedience. Procrastination is delayed obedience. Procrastination is defiance. Procrastination is a sin. I don’t know why Lot came to mind. When the two angels came to rescue Lot from the demise of Sodom and Gomorrah, the angels had to coax them into obeying and leaving immediately. Jehovah sent angels to warn them of the devastation to come and Lot and his family had to be “led” away. Why?
Jehovah has shown us the devastation to come if we live in sin but instead of immediately coming out of sin, we’re taking our time, procrastinating and lingering in it. Jehovah has shown us the blessings and rewards for our obedience when we start the business, write the book, start the ministry, leave the job, relocate, answer the call, start the prayer line, facilitate the Bible study, write the plan, write the grant, and secure the building but we are taking our sweet time. The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Jehovah wants us to know that “the thing” He has asked us to do has very little to do with “us.” We are “vessels.” If we understood the profundity of the impact our obedience will have on the kingdom, we would move immediately. Why are you so comfortable procrastinating? Because the enemy has deceived you into thinking that it’s just a “personality trait” instead of outright disobedience, opposition toward Jehovah, and downright sin. Let’s go! When I tell you I’m about to get my journal out and revisit what Jehovah has instructed me to do and ask Him for a timeline… Tis NOT the season to be procrastinating. It’s raining torrential rains… I have a “reverent” FEAR of Jehovah. I bind stagnancy in our lives in the name of Jehovah. How will the kingdom advance when the body is stagnant?
Holy Spirit said to me, “Give Birth.” I was having a coaching session with an Apostle and we both kept saying that there was something about April and we were only in the month of February (Eruption of Divine Glory). I was looking at my calendar again and it was clear to me. Holy Spirit whispered, “Give Birth.” April is the season for us to give birth! It’s manifestation time. This entire month is the month for YOU to take action toward the dreams and visions that God has given you. There are no excuses this month. There are no hesitations this month. There is no more fear this month. It is time. Period. Give birth. God is going to put His supernatural glory, power, and anointing on all our natural efforts that Holy Spirit tells us to put forth but you must make the efforts this season. Be obedient to Holy Spirit if you can receive this Word in your spirit. Jené Elaine Walker #givebirth

This is a week of thanksgiving! Be thankful especially that God is getting ready to birth our assignments of purpose THIS SEASON.
Settle Down Sunday and complete this Spiritual Survey
1.Sometimes before we enter the season of blessedness, we have to experience a season of barrenness. We go through barren seasons for different reasons specific to our personal spiritual journeys. This week, as you make your requests to God with thanksgiving, ask God to reveal to you any sin that you have in your life that could be causing this drought in your life. Remind God of the vision that He gave you. Remind Him of the promises He gave you after your last fast. But be still and listen for His voice.
2. Take your eyes off her seed. God wants to bless us this season. He wants to manifest the fruit of our seed. But He wants us to take our eyes off the seeds of others and keep our eyes on Him and His promises. We don’t know her journey. We haven’t been through what he has gone through. FOCUS ON GOD. Pray, fast, seek God and have faith. How will you strategically focus on God just to develop your relationship with Him? How will you seek God for your seed? When you give birth, will you dedicate your assignment to God or will it be for selfish gain?
3. The devil wants you to terminate the birth of your purpose; deliver the birth of your assignment prematurely; or give birth to a lifeless assignment detached from the spirit of God. How will you strategically fight the devil for what’s rightfully yours?
4. Your womb as to be conducive for holding the seed of God’s promises. Have you consecrated yourself? Have you given up wine or any other fermented drink? Have you given up smoking everything that will contaminate the seed? Are you engaged in sexual immorality (the sexually immoral will not make it to heaven)? There are some things that you will have to give up THIS SEASON in order to carry the birth of your assignment from GOD. What do you know in your heart that you need to give up to prepare for birth?
Your seed is protected. If Holy Spirit has revealed to you a coming birth, if God has sent you a spiritual messenger to pronounce the news of your birth then it shall come to pass. Go ahead and give God thanks in advance this week. I don’t care what it looks like. Stop professing, “I’m too old now. It’s too late for me now. Maybe the vision was really an illusion. It’s never going to happen for me.” The devil is a liar. Declare and decree a thing that will be established in your life. “I am about to give birth.” I love you! Dr.J.
