Remember that God’s intention and will for you is not because of You, but of Him. It is for His great name! Ezekiel 36:22 “Therefore say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. Quit beating yourself and embrace the unconditional love of God. Do not take this love for granted though!
Now that you know God loves you unconditionally, then you must contend against everything mitigating against your peace, message, recipients, channel, and circumstances. You must wage war against every encumbrance within and without.
I was speaking with a dear brother of mine just yesterday about some things. Having faced resistance all this while, I was beginning to think that maybe I am a bad person! Maybe I am too difficult and all sort I said! I was beginning to internalise what I have been experiencing and this is exactly what the enemy of our soul wants. Are the events, people and situation around gaslighting you? Take a cue from Jeremiah 29:11
I was able to get out of that phase by the help of the Holy Spirit, by putting the spotlight on Gods’ Will, Plan, Purpose, and desire for me. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Resistance is a ploy to wear you out so your dreams can die and he, the devil can gloat over you.
You have to desperately contend for your life, your message, your purpose, your destiny for it to be fulfilled. You must never lose hope on the journey. Keep taking steps after steps, trusting God even when you do not see any cloud of the promised rain.
Dear friends, continue to trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight Proverbs 3: 5 and 6. Every promise shall be fulfilled. Stay focus!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
