What To Do When

God doesn’t work on our schedules. We think we know when we need something, how we should receive it, or even what we should be doing with it. But what happens when we try to do things our way only to find ourselves in some deep troubled waters?

Your life may be spiraling out of control right now. Your health may be deteriorating. Your friends and family might have left and you feel all alone. Your co-workers and boss might be mistreating you. You may not be able to pay the bills. So what are you to do?

I know it sounds crazy but it all means that you are in a prime position for a mighty move of God in your life. When everything is going wild, crazy and simply don’t make sense in your life, then you have two choices (1) try to do things your way or (2) Stop, drop and wait upon the Lord.

No matter what the circumstance looks like, your best option is number 2. You’ve already tried doing things your way and it’s not working. You’ve tried praying about them or trying to run away from the very things God is using to change your life. He doesn’t want to just fix the problem, He wants to fix you inside out.

Think about it this way…if God just fixed every problem, would you need any faith to believe? If God just handed you a million dollars, would you really know how to use it correctly or would you end up being in worse shape when the million dollars slipped through your hands?

God’s ways are much higher than ours. He wants us whole and complete. Sometimes the only way He can truly fix us is by having us go through some deep, dark troubles. It brings us back to Him. It makes us stand on faith and seek Him in deeper ways. It takes all the crude out of us and places the beauty of the Lord within.

So if you are going through some tough times right now make sure to stop, drop and wait upon the Lord. Let Him do a complete and finished work in your life. It may be tough and painful but when you come out on the other side, you will have the tools you need to accomplish the amazing future He has in store for you.

God loves you too much and your purpose in life is too valuable to not have you prepared. Whatever you do, don’t despise the troubles. Seek Him to reveal the reason behind the difficult season. Ask Him what needs to change within you in order to walk into the VICTORY He has for you. Be primed, willing and able to walk into your mighty purpose. God knows exactly when to bring it, how to bring it, and He will be right on time.

What You Need To Know About God

Who is God? What is His Character like? Why should we care? Why do we have to go through these things?

Sometimes, you have to go back to the revelation of who God is before you can move forward. God is very tactical about this and He will create a situation for a revelation. What do I mean?

First…let’s determine what the Bible says about God.

For verifiable Biblical Scriptures regarding the above statements click here

Now that we’ve established who God is and what He’s like, it’s important for us to know that everything that happens in our lives has a reason and purpose. The things you went through had to happen. You had to survive! You had to make it! You had to believe you’re more than a conqueror through Christ! You had to hold onto I’m healed by His stripes, I am the head and not the tail, I am above and not below. You had to hold on when no one else would! You had to believe when all others were walking away from you.

Don’t listen to the naysayers that surround you. Don’t lean on people who can’t believe or trust in where God is taking you. Through it all, God was and is determined to prove His power and presence in your life.

Get off the “Why?” land. You don’t need a reason! Instead let God give you a revelation. He will open whatever doors that are needed for you to flourish into your destiny. And when all things happen in God’s perfect timing, those naysayers will start asking questions giving you an amazing opportunity of sharing God’s love through your own personal testimony. It will be a glorious day when you save souls through the goodness God showed you through it all! He can and will make your restoration come forth! Don’t give up. Keep pushing forward till you see His Victory in your life!

Watch Pastor Steven Furtick bring this incredible teaching to life. It will change the way you see things!

Your Perspective Is Everything

When life throws you a curve ball, your perspective in the midst of the storm will be considerably different from when you obtain your victory afterwards.

Here’s a great quick clip of Pastor Steven Furtick’s take on the matter. It is a great reminder to help us see God’s perspective through the storm and realize there is something bigger coming on the other side of it.

Your True Identity

So many of us look at the past and think that is who we are. Do you see yourself through the eyes of betrayal, hurt, rejection, mistakes and pain? If so, you will constantly strive for approval and perfection. That’s the world’s way, not Gods!

Your past does not define you. Wherever you grew up, whatever you did or whatever happened to you is the past and that’s where it needs to stay. Once you became a Child of the Most High, all of your sins and everything that happened in the past goes away. Your true identity lies in Jesus and who He is.

Now when you start seeing Jesus and all of His beautiful attributes, the devil is going to bring up everything in the past to try and make you feel guilty, shameful, hurt, angry and everything else he can try to persuade you that you aren’t worthy. But the devil is a liar!!!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone, the new has come.” 2 Cor. 5:17

You are a new creature in Christ. His strength, power, love, kindness, freedom, holiness, and righteousness became you. You are a child of the Most High. The one and only true God! You are born again by the Holy Spirit (John 3:3-6). You are saved by grace as a gift, not because of your performance (Ephesians 2:8).

The right to your new life is a gift from God Almighty! You are the light of the world (Matt. 5:14), you will shine like stars in the sky (Philippians 2:15), you are the salt of the earth (Matt. 5:13), you are a vessel of God’s divine light (2Cor 4:6).

That is your identity. Jesus died to give us life and life more abundantly, to make us the head and not the tail, above and not below, to be more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Embrace the new you. You are royalty, an heir to the throne, and God’s loving arms are wrapped around you everywhere you go. You are an amazing person. Don’t look back, continuously look forward. God’s grace, love, power, strength, provision and healing power is upon you. Be the light in this dark world and remind the devil that he is a liar. You are special, loved and highly-favored by God Almighty.

By A Thin Thread

Courage Against The Odds

What battles have you found yourself in? How long have you been waiting for the touch of God to break forth into your life? How many prayers have you prayed but they don’t seem to be answered? How much have you struggled and held on, only to feel defeated?

If you are anything like me, it has been a very long and tough battle. Everything that could go wrong, has! Everything you loved or worked so hard for has been taken away! Everything you’ve tried to do has been less than successful. Blow after blow has left you feeling crushed, broken, and exhausted!

It would be easy to give up. It would be easy to say forget it. It would be easy to say “why should I go on?”. It would be easy to let it all go and start playing the world’s way. You’ve been fighting the battles for so long, it’s easy to lose all hope because you are holding on by a very thin thread!

Well I’m here to tell you…HOLD ON, GOD’S NOT DONE WITH YOU YET and you are primed for the biggest comeback, the most amazing restoration, the most incredible and prosperous time of your life. God has seen you struggle. He has seen your tears. He has seen your defeat. But he has also seen you hold onto your little bit of faith; which in itself is a miracle that you could hold onto it through it all.

Deuteronomy 20:4 “for the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.”

Matthew 21:21 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen.”

One thing to keep in mind is that we are still in the timeframe between Passover and Pentecost. This is the time when the disciples watched Jesus die on the cross and ran for their lives. They were in dire straits. Here they thought Jesus was going to make everything alright, only to watch the Son of God be crucified. And they were next. But then, 50 days later in the upper room, they were filled with the Holy Spirit which gave them courage, wisdom, and the strength to go out and change the world for the Gospel.

You’ve been through alot and there’s no doubt in my mind that you have had to struggle to hold on to any ounce of faith. That’s okay. God understands and knows that you are doing your very best to keep believing. Just hold on for a little bit longer. June 4th marks God’s Pentecost. It’s His time to break the curses that have been plaguing you! And if that’s not enough…we are in a very prophetic time frame of Israel’s jubilee which means double blessings for those who are standing with God’s people! It’s God’s time for signs, wonders, and miracles. It’s the time that God will rebuke the devourer for your sake and pays back everything that has been stolen. Don’t miss your moment!

God’s restoration is coming. He promises to restore far greater than anything you’ve lost. Don’t give up your hope! Keep standing on His word and see it come to pass in your life.

God promises that you are more than a conqueror! (Romans 8:37) He promises that you will overcome and have the victory! (I John 5:4) He promises to be fighting the battle for you. It doesn’t matter what you feel or see…God is fighting on your behalf!

Your greatest moments of life are right in front of you. Don’t give up just when it’s right around the corner and in sight. You’ve fought your way around the mountains, over and over and over again. You’re almost there! Hold on for God is about to burst forth into your life like never before. Don’t lose your courage and don’t lose your ground when your best times are just ahead!

Your Harvest Is On It’s Way! Stay Strong Till You See Your Breakthrough!
