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!
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!
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!
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.
Don’t fall into the trap of the enemy in this season. You are not depressed. You are not going into more debt – you’re coming out. You may be alone but you are not lonely. You have transitioned through a change in seasons and come forth victorious. You have overcome every attack the enemy forged against you in 2017. You are more than a conqueror. You don’t have to overspend to overcompensate for you you think you are not. You are whole. You are amazing. You are royalty – kings and queens. You made it through the most trying times of your life because Jehovah is your everything. There is nothing lost in the kingdom because Jehovah restores and shows mercy on whom He wants to show mercy. You will not take any residue of rejection, depression, or oppression into the new season of 2018. You realize you are but a mist and that your life is not your own. Therefore, you are determined to live each day that you do have in the dominion, authority, and power that Jehovah gave to you. Your lot is not lack but your portion is increase and multiplication. Shut down every lying devil that contradicts what God says about you in His Word. We don’t die, we multiply! And brown people, awaken and watch God vindicate us in this season.
One of the things that has caused us to be stuck in a spiritual time capsule, unable to unlock the blessings of Jehovah is the company we keep. We are stuck in a season of drought, no productivity and lack because we refuse to walk away from people. And God has revealed to us that the people around us are not supposed to be connected to us but we refuse to cut ties.
Ungodly counsel is advice from those who appear to speak truth but have a spirit of divination and wickedness. It obviously isn’t always obvious. You won’t listen to your spirit. And you’re stuck. Being in the path of or on the same course or journey with sinners will keep you in a season beyond your time. Remaining, tarrying, abiding and dwelling in a situation with those who boast, scorn, mock and act foolishly will keep you from a season of blessings.
Blessed is the man who cuts ties with these people. The opposite is true. A change in seasons will happen when a change in connections happens.
Psalms 1:1-6 KJV “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”
Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” There is an invisible battle in the spiritual realm that we can’t see. We just need to ask God for revelation so that we can “see” what’s happening in the spiritual realm.
The fight for your marriage is REAL! Do you think it’s unintentional that there are so many divorces and marital issues? The fight for your sanity and not to lose your mind is REAL! Do you think it’s just “YOU” causing you to be up, down, in, out, and on a rollercoaster? The fight for your finances is REAL! Do you think that the spirit of poverty in our family lineages won’t have to be broken and cut off and demolished with violent spiritual force? It’s real. Satan has a strategic army. We have to ask God to help us to use our weapons to fight the rulers of the darkness spiritually. We can’t win a spiritual war with flesh. God open our hearts, minds, and EYES to receive what you’re showing us in Jesus’s name. The devil is after something all right – to ultimately destroy us. But he has no power over our power through Yeshua.
