As long as you are living, and you are fortunate to know the mind of God for your life, let nothing stop you from doing all that you know God wants you to do.
To many times we allow situations and circumstances to steal our time, energy, and resources.
Friends, this very moment is the perfect time to walk the path you know heaven ordained for you before the foundation of the earth was laid.
Apostle Paul is a good example of someone who refused to let situation or circumstances stop him from fulfilling his God given destiny.
Paul was a prisoner yet he kept on walking the path heaven bestowed on him. The thorn in his side could not stop him, neither the many storm and shipwrecks.
Acts 28:16 When we got to Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself, with a soldier to guard him. … .. 30For two whole years Paul stayed there in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him. 31 Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.
You also can pickup from where you left off 22years ago, 30, 40, or 5 years ago. Pick up your dreams this day and start running with it.
With God, it is never too late, or else you’d be 6 feet under!
I hope you are keeping safe. I am trying my best to keep safe, knowing my ultimate safety is of the Lord. May the Lord keep you and I, and all that is ours.
In line with your suggestion, prompting, and encouragement with regards to stepping out in faith, seizing my kairos moment, to walk the path heaven has bestowed on me, I write this to you.
In many ways, and for so long, I have been hasty in running with divine prompting. God in His infinite mercy has always and continuously shown mercy and have not allowed me to suffer irreparable loss.
The Fire of the Holy Spirit burning in a soul this fiercely, if care is not taken, one might step out too fast. According to Luke 14:28 ““If you wanted to build a building, you would first sit down and decide how much it would cost. You must see if you have enough money to finish the job. 29 If you don’t do that, you might begin the work, but you would not be able to finish. And if you could not finish it, everyone would laugh at you. 30 They would say, ‘This man began to build, but he was not able to finish.’
I am one for doing what need to be done right away and do not slack at all in pursuing what I believe in. I have come to understand however that even though you do not have to wait for all resources to be readily at your disposal before you venture on in a project,you however need the guidance of the Holy Spirit for the things of the Spirit.
Many a time I have acted as prompted and lead by the spirit and the result was tremendously uplifting. But then, I had slacked behind to reach out as prompted and many years after I am still wondering if that soul is lost for eternity because of my unbelief. I will never know now until eternity.
It was my first call as a young adult, I was twentyish, my mother was hospitalized and anytime I go in to visit at the hospital, there is this particular person in pain that the Lord asked me to pray for. I was but a young believer and was not sure of myself and delayed in responding. The very day I believed I had prayed up myself with faith and courage, I practically ran into the ward and this woman was no more. Oh, how I cried, prayed and asked for forgiveness, hoping that someone else had walked in and prayed for the woman before she passed.
That was many moons ago and yet I have never forgotten. And then there was a case of wanting an alliance so desperately, that I was so fixated on what I wanted until the Lord opened my eyes to see, ” something like, its gross, but there is no way to paint the picture other than presenting it as it is. You see, I saw a grown person, who apparently had used the bathroom without cleaning up, walked around with flies gathered on the backside like bees around honey. Then this person comes around to walk seemingly over me and I flew off from where I was, I wouldn’t let this dirt around me.
You see, I was so desperate for this alliance that I did not see the red flag that it was not meant for me. It took this vision to see it for what it was.
Now, back to what is at hand, when the fire falls from above, it brings clarity, you get insight, depth of it, and you are attune to everything in a different way. What is ahead that has been blurry get clearer. There is no need for me to be hasty, the Spirit is leading and I have never gotten clarity as much as now.
I can’t help but say that I am in a very good place. I am walking the path heaven designed for me. Things are making sense that were very confusing and frustrating before.
Therefor, my lovely friend, I appreciate your love and concern, I mean time truly do not wait for no one, its not good to put till tomorrow what you can do today, and seize your kairos moment. I get it!
Yet, the vision/ revelation is for an appointed time it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay – Habakkuk 2:3
David was anointed in 1 Samuel 16, however, until he strategically faced Goliath in 1 Samuel 17 in defence of the armies of the Most High God, he did not come to lime light.
1 Samuel 17 David asked the men standing near him, “What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?” They repeated to him what they had been saying and told him, “This is what will be done for the man who kills him.” When Eliab, David’s oldest brother, heard him speaking with the men, he burned with anger at him and asked, “Why have you come down here? And with whom did you leave those few sheep in the wilderness? I know how conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to watch the battle.” “Now what have I done?” said David. “Can’t I even speak?” 1 Samuel 17:26-29 NIV
Now to the new testament. Paul heard the slave girl prophecy by divination, declaring Paul and his party as servants of God for many days, until he spoke the evil spirit did not keep quiet!
Acts 16:16 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her. When her owners realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to face the authorities. Acts 16:16-19 NIV
You need to take strategic and calculated action for the manifestation of that which you desire and is yours as promised – Victory over every issues defying the Word of God in your life.
You only have to speak the right word at the right time and occasion to effect the change you desire like Paul.
Be bold, be confident, be discerning, and understand that the keys to waging war and ultimate victory may sometimes be obscured by your misconceptions, therefore, receive clarity in the place of prayer.
There is no other way to throw a punch. The truth often bite and there’s no way around it. Truth must always be told regardless of who it may hurt! Remember, it’s to keep US all from harms way!
Jonah 4:1-4 But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry.
And he prayed unto the LORD, and said, I pray thee, O LORD, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.
Therefore now, O LORD, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live.
Then said the LORD, Doest thou well to be angry?
This new decade:
▪️Open your mouth
▪️Let God fill it
▪️Speak as He gives utterance
▪️Do not hold back
▪️Love enough to speak
Just before this decade walks away from us all, and especially for anyone with a call on his or her life running away from God like Jonah did – Jonah 1:1-3
I want you to reflect and ask for forgiveness from everyone and anyone that your disobedience has cost fortunes.
You see, your disobedience, running away from God was what made that man, woman in your life to operate contrary to expected.
The merchants had to throw their wares overboard. The essence of their journey to Tarshish, their livelihood, wealth, and treasure – Jonah 1:5
You my friend, left a trail of loss, waste, fear, destruction in your path running away from God.
You had the whole picture, you knew what you have done, you knew the cause, you knew you were running from the Lord, and even in the stormy seas you were calm enough to fall into a deep sleep while others ran frantically here and there, afraid, and in panic acted contrarily.
Can anyone really run from God? Why would you think you could? Why put all these people that crossed your path in jeopardy?
You need to ask the Lord to restore that which they lost as a result of your own disobedience.
Oh, you thought you lost relationships? Marriages? Homes? Wealth? Career? Honor? …….?
How about the innocent people on that boat with you? They lost much more!
And the fish?
See! God used everything, and everyone to get you back on track. Instead of being hurt, pained, disappointed with them, be grateful! I say it again, BE GRATEFUL!
Almighty God, Ancient of days, Immortal, Invisible, the All Knowing, Only Wise God. You were there before time and will be when time stops for humanity. Father I thank you for your goodness, working ALL out for the good of your anointed.
Daddy, I ask in Jesus name, that you will restore all that anyone and everyone has lost on my account. Rebuild broken walls, altars, ruins, and fortune.
Thank you Father for I know you have heard.
Let your power manifest mightily in and through US all for the glory of your name alone in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen
Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road. Mark 10:48-52 NIV
Friends, there are many things, situations, circumstances, and sad to say, people that will discourage you from pursuing your greatest desire to see, to serve, speak, walk, to reproduce, to pioneer uniqueness, to become all that heaven has ordained for you. You do not have to let this situation and people dissuade you from crying all the more as blind Bartimaeus did.
You need to cry all the more, you know He is able, Jesus is able as settled in your heart, so go ahead and cry all the more! Don’t you ever lose hope, don’t let discouragement wear you out. Cry all the more unto the Lord and your faith shall heal you!
