Emotions can be dream, goal, and promise killers. Some of us are already looking at 2019 like, “Really?” Don’t look at 2019, look at yourself in the mirror. Then, tell yourself, “I don’t care what you ‘feel like.’ You are going to pursue the kingdom and the promises in it like you never have before.”
So get back up. It’s the 9th day and I know that some of us have already gotten in a pity party position on the sofa. Get up and do it until you see the manifestation. Do. Not. Give. Up! I can see past the pity party. I see you smiling in the Spirit. I see blushing and dimples as the promises began to manifest right before your very eyes – the marriage, the increase, the promotions, the homes, the expansion, the release, the businesses, the nonprofits, the ministries, the schools. I see you saying, “I’m so glad I ‘did it’ even when I didn’t feel like it.” Don’t let anything you “think” you’re missing make you miss what is already yours. Time is winding up. I know you sense the time drawing near for our Savior Yeshua. Dominate this earth until He gets here. Now let’s go!
Have you written your goals for the week? As I seek God this morning, nothing will stop me from completing the tasks that He gives me each day this week. I was reading an article about how millionaire entrepreneur Keyshia Kaoir, owner of Kaoir Fitness, Kaoir Hair, and Kaoir Cosmetics, stays focused. She said that every single day she makes a To Do List and she does not end the day until she finishes everything on that list! It sounds simple, but how many of us have tried that and have not been able to do every task? It takes discipline. It takes determination. It takes planning. It takes having goals for the week. And when you have this mindset at the beginning of each week, you will dominate. You’ve already written your goals for the 2019 year. You’ve taken those goals and broken them down by the quarter. Now look at the quarter and break it down by month and each week of the month. You have a new opportunity to dominate. Seize everything that belongs to you. Your millions are awaiting you. Don’t leave anything on the table or anything on the list. And just watch! God will give those who watch and wait something to see! 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!
The signs are there. They have always been there. You know if this “thing” is just physical. You know if it’s “shallow.” You know if it’s just a superficial attraction. But what often holds us here in this kind of situation is an extremely strong desire for “some” type of attention or “any” kind of affection. We’re prolonging the inevitable and delaying the real blessings Jehovah has for us. I know it gets difficult in the flesh. I know the desire for companionship can be overwhelmingly strong at times. I know what it’s like to experience a four year drought just to have the “wrong man” to be the first candidate after the drought. It’s tempting. To just have someone, anyone but don’t. It isn’t a good feeling when the physical attraction wears off and the idea of you just isn’t that interesting any more, and the phone calls die down and the texts subside. And you find out that your heart means nothing to a man who was never created for you in the first place. Bow out gracefully NOW and trust God’s timing.
