(Please read this, I know it’s longish, but you will see why…)❤
You might be going through something that causes you to feel like you just can’t anymore! Usually when the pressure seems to be at its worse, that is when we are at what’s called a “tipping point“, a point where our change and “new thing” breaks forth!
But many people give up just at that point. Cause its the most intense and seems like the “darkest” time! Even in nature the darkest time of the night, is just before dawn breaks! This is a time to hold on, and SUDDENLY it will break forth, and you will be SO happy you “pushed through”. Its happening to some, even RIGHT NOW! It’s NOT the time for us to let go…
You’ve had circumstances literally knock the breath out of you, and you’ve been too scared to “rise” again, cause you SO feel weary. But the God inside us, says to you and us, this day, that “you ain’t seen nothing yet!” The world around you and the Kingdom of God, needs you to rise up!
The enemy has attempted to keep you “taken out” because of the POWERFUL “call and purpose” that God has prepared for you to walk in and ONLY you can do it, your unique way! And even in our seemingly “taken out” position, you have touched lives that we could never in your dreams imagine, YES even in our weakness….!
Yes we can choose to stay “down” or we can let God raise us up, and step out in HIS strength, to show others the true character of our Father! Let Him raise you up today….!
Cause EVERYTHING we go through, has an “expiry date”, pain, financial challenges, relationship problems, sin, being misunderstood, betrayed, health problems, loneliness, mental illness, grief and ANYTHING else ANY of us are going through! IT HAS AN EXPIRY DATE! We declare TODAY, that “its coming to an end!” I declare and decree it again, “IT’S COMING TO AN END….!”
Here is the key! Ecc 3v11 says, “God has made EVERYTHING beautiful in His time.” Today I encourage us all, to give God time. It says, “in His time.” The Word also says to “leave room for God..” So the expiry date for our “challenge,” no matter how long its been going on, is coming!
Friends I know I say this often, but it REALLY works!!! Let’s worship Him while we’re waiting….for He surely is SO worthy…!”
People have asked me, “but how do you get through with the challenges that’s been happening in your life and the 24/7 pain?” So I am going to share some what we as a family do! And I am NOT saying this is some “magic” formula, cause trust me, at times we just want to run away and hide, and ask God to PLEASE hurry up with the Rapture!! 🤣 But these things are Biblical.
As I say VERY often, at the times when you just feel the least like you want to worship. That’s the MOST important time. Cause worship brings God’s manifest presence into ANY situation, where miracles happen! And also we worship simply because our King is worthy!! 🙌🏼❤
The enemy is not going to hang around and watch us worship Jesus, ESPECIALLY when EVERYTHING inside you just wants to curl up and die, and he thinks he has got you down,(just like when he thought he won when Jesus died) thats EXACTLY the time to worship!! So the enemy and his demons just flee! Cause they don’t understand why we keep worshipping this Jesus, even when the enemy, through his lies, has made us feel like God has forgotten us…but we do…cause He is SO worthy!!!
If you are baptised in the Holy Spirit, then pray in your spiritual language literally all day, even under your breath! Or even sing or speak in tongues, whenever you can, whenever you think about it…cause the enemy cannot understand or intercept it, cause its our very own “deep calling to deep” and “spirit to Spirit” language, that prays God’s perfect will, at the speed of Light not just sound! I really love it, when I can communicate with God, especially when I have no clue what more to say in English!
We also personally daily take communion (breaking bread), simply to say, “thank You precious Jesus for the price You paid on the cross!” Jesus even said to the disciples, “Do this often, in remembrance of Me!” The enemy can’t handle it to be reminded of his defeat at the cross! And we pray and say something like, “Lord as we take You body and Your blood, we receive Your DNA, and may Your blood flow through our bodies, and cleanse and heal, in Jesus name…”
Ooooohhh and spending time in His Presence, just “being” and loving Him and letting Him love you! Well nothing compares. ❤ Intimacy with our Beloved is SO special, cause when His Presence comes, EVERYTHING else must move out the way! The very atmosphere changes…And even the Word says that “every good and perfect thing comes from above!”
Remember too that when we feel like we have literally “lost our way” because of what’s been happening, the Bible says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light to my path.” So reading His Word aloud, and I don’t mean loud, but aloud, so your entire being, and everything in the atmosphere around you, literally gets “charged” with His Word, which is living and active, so it strengthens our inner man.
Sometimes I am in too much pain to even try to read anything. Cause the brain pressure is so high, and even my eyes are affected and very blur, and the light from my mobile is like a lazer cutting into my head…
That’s when I will listen to the Word. I will play my Audio Bible, or you can find many links on You Tube or similar sites, that literally have soft sounds, like waves in the background, and then a calming voice reads various scriptures. This can be for 8 hours or less! And even if it’s so soft that you can barely hear it with your ears, your spirit will hear it and be strengthened, and you will be very surprised at how much actually goes in, and you even remember scriptures at the exact times you need it, and you don’t remember reading it…
So these are some of our “weapons/tools” that we use friends…and having said all these things, trust me when I say, that we can focus on our challenges or “pain” and to be honest, sometimes we do…But when we have released whatever, and get out of our “pity party” having “thrown all our toys out the cot” as the saying goes,(and that’s also ok,) but then we rather choose to NOT speak death into our situations, and just keep giving the enemy more power, because of our words! Cause actually we have these weapons (some of which I have mentioned here) in our possession, and they free for us to use, while we wait for that glorious victory!!! So I think well, why not use them…
The Bible says, “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but MIGHTY in the tearing down of strongholds…” We have a POWER inside us that raised Jesus from the dead! And I believe God is saying to each of us today, “you ain’t seen nothing yet! I’ve got you…and I will NEVER abandon you! Ever!”
I have mentioned a few practical ways here that you and I can use, while we wait! But please know that these are NOT works of the flesh! Like we must “do” and only then are we good enough! No! No! No! That would be putting ourselves under the curse of the law!! The things I have shared here, will give you and I access into ANOTHER REALM, where God has ALREADY defeated the enemy!! Having done all we STAND, and see the salvation of the Lord! Intimacy with our Beloved is our greatest privilege, as we respond to His invitation to “come away with Me…”
So if you feel like you at that “tipping” point, please lets just not give up, cause it could literally be just at the point of our Supernatural BREAKTHROUGH!!!
I pray that what I have shared here will help even just one person for the glory of God. We ALL going though something, and “we overcome by the blood of the Lamb, and the word of our testimony…!!!” And this is simply SOME of my testimony! So together we are going “THROUGH” whatever is challenging us, and definitely NOT pitching up a tent there!
