No matter how long its been; no matter what trouble you have been through, always remember that the LORD is still going to do what he has promised. Don’t allow winds of discouragement to throw you off course. No matter how many times you have been knocked down, get back up! It is written in Proverbs 24:16: “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief”.
All you need is a mustard size seed of faith. That dream will come to pass, even when you felt that you may have lost it all. Sometimes the LORD will take you through different routes to get there, but its all part of the process to become better and stronger. There will be times in where things won’t appear fair, but in due season it shall pay off. Your going to be more stronger and powerful more than you have ever been before. Psalms 22:2: “says, He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters”. Speak it into existence and write the vision to make it plain. Don’t give up on him and don’t give up on your faith, for you have come too far now. When God is planning on to bless you, no Devil in hell can stop it. Don’t faint, fall or stumble. He is going to still bless you beyond measure. Your going to come out with much more than what you came in with. Don’t be angry with him, he is still going to make it happen.
Pick up the word of God as your weapon to fight against whatever doubt or attack that may come against you. It is written in Hebrews 4:12: “ For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. Be anxious for nothing. Allow him to do things his way. No matter what you been through, he is still going to do it! Increase you power and strength by reading his word.

Keep it all together when everything is fallen apart. This is a test of how much courage, strength, growth and wisdom that you have gained along the way. There will be things that will come from all corners and directions that will attack you. (Sometimes out of no where). It is written in Ephesians 6:12: “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.” Behind every negative force of energy and attack is something that is spiritual. Even when you have every reason to quit or give up, remain standing. Do not give anyone or anything your power. You are much stronger than you think you are, especially with God’s strength. Don’t fall apart. Keep your mind together, for you are more than a conqueror. Pass the test during the trial. Everything happens for a reason. When it’s all over, you will be standing victorious. The blessings will outweigh the pain, stress, rejection, loneliness, frustration and anger. Always go to your secret place and allow him to guard and protect you. There is greater and more on the way for you! Allow God to be the band that holds you together. Don’t collapse.

The word no can be bold, direct and even uncomfortable. God’s no is protection. No matter how frustrated or impatient you are, look at it as an honor. You’re so special in his sight that he will run the risk of your pain to protect you. Believe or not, some people don’t have that privilege or that form of favor. For example, he will answer yes to some people’s prayer just to show them that it’s not what they wanted or thought. Why go through any unnecessary stress, pressure, or work? He loves you so much that he doesn’t want you to experience that. Think about a child who wants too much candy. Out of love, care and responsibility, their parents will tell them no, despite how much their feelings are hurt. God is the same way. It’s better to just listen and obey the voice of the LORD no matter what his answer is at the moment. His ways are higher than our ways and his thinking is better than our ways. A closed door is better than an open door that leads to destruction. His no’s are just as important as the yes. See it as no harm or strange thing. You are favored beyond measure! ♥
Discernment is very important to have in this day and age. It’s a precious gift from God. With so much chaos going on in the world, this is not a time to be sleep. We must be on guard at all times. Don’t allow your pride to deceive you in handling things your way. God always knows how to handle things better than we do. (That includes vengeance) Satan is very crafty. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. Always stay in prayer, even when you don’t feel like it or have to. Mathew 26:40-41 says, And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
This scripture is interesting because it always surprised me on how people can be sleeping in the presence of Jesus. Are you sleeping when God is calling you to pray, fast and obey? Are you sleeping when you hear his voice of instruction? Sleep can cause you to miss out on the biggest blessing that can come your way. Wake up and arise! For you must be prepared and ready for what’s on the way. His strength and power will keep you in perfect peace.
Numbness is dangerous in the natural as well as in the spiritual. In the natural, if numbness is not treated, that part of the body can become infected. So many people are spiritually paralyzed. The ability to feel is a powerful experience and blessing. God has given us emotions not to be led by them but to worship him. Emotions are blessing and not a curse. Emotions can be sometimes be interpreted as being weak. So many people run from their emotions and become numb. Some people have shut themselves off completely and hardened their hearts. This makes it difficult to not receive or enact on what God is saying to your spirit. This can create a sense of pride and block your healing and deliverance. Numbness can rob you of the experience of joy, love, happiness and peace. (Fruits of the spirit). The ability to feel is a wonderful thing because your able to process what’s going on in your mind and heart. Emotions can develop encouragement that will not allow the past experience of pain to keep you numb. Don’t allow people to steal your joy, glow, energy and colorful personality. You are not a robot. Another great thing about the ability to feel is the reminder that your conscience has not left you. Your conscience is a valuable treasure from God which protects you.
The worst thing that God can do to anyone is to take away their conscience. Repentance is a gift from God. When you do not have the desire to repent or feel any conviction, you are a dead man walking.
Numbness blocks off your conscience and your ability to “see” clearly. Keeping your guard up can prohibit discernment and prevent you from enjoying the fullness of life. Numbness can prevent covenant relationships that could enter into your life. While it’s important to guard your heart’s affections do not allow anyone or anything to turn you into something you’re not. (cold or mean-spirited) God can fix any broken heart and sometimes he will test you to see if you truly believe him. Whether it’s a hostile work, school or home environment, do not give anyone or anything no form of power. Dust it off. Why dim your light? You are more than a conqueror. The sun will always rise again. Joy shall cometh in the morning. Do not shut your feelings off, it allows you to be human and effective for the kingdom of God. Embrace your emotions.
What do you have to gain by giving up? There is always a time when quitting looks good. In my personal life, there were times when I thought about quitting college, jobs and other personal achievements and endeavors. Finishing makes it worth it. There is nothing like finishing. The obstacles makes the success greater to enjoy. Pain and process can create some impressive results for God ways are mysterious.
Stay committed until the end. Put your all into everything you do. (Even when your all seems to fall short). Mediocrity does run in your DNA. You are held to a higher standard. You live in the world but are not of the world. Stop waiting on the approval and validation from other people to tell you that you’re great. You must encourage yourself. Go forth and rise up! It’s important to run your race. No one else’s. You have a different calling and assignment. He has set you a part. Commitment should not be driven by feelings. Commitment is showing up when you don’t feel like it. It runs deeper than loyalty. It requires discipline, honor and obligation. It requires getting back up when you’re fallen down. It takes a spirit of courage and wisdom. It’s take more than dedication and determination. It takes the spirit of a true champion and over comer. There are a few people in this world who have the spirit of commitment. Commitment displays your character and how far you can go. Don’t quit. The best is yet to come. Your best days are in front of you and not behind you. Put God over all that you do. Stay true and faithful to him. His word shall never return void. He shall honor your commitment, for he will reward you openly for what you do in secret. Can he trust you drop it all for his sake? Commit yourself unto him. He will protect you through it all. He will always preserve his best. Remain faithful even until the end.
