God Is Growing You

God uses some of the most difficult situations, experiences in life to grow us forward.  When the worst happens, difficult shows up or a life lesson comes to teach, God has a plan in it.  Sometimes it takes an overwhelming breakdown to get our overwhelming breakthroughs in life.  
 
When it’s time to grow, one of the hardest things for us to do is to challenge the negative thoughts and feelings that come from growing pains. Our reaction to experiences, good and bad, tell us what we think and believe the impact is to our plans, hopes and dreams.
 
Have you asked yourself, “What is the source of the feeling or what do the feelings say about what you perceive and believe to be true?” Truth: Persistent, negative feelings almost always mean it’s time to stand up  against a lie, a negative view of our potential or value, or doubt in God’s promise (2 Corinthians 10:5).
 
Put this in your spirit: “All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely (1 Corinthians 13:12).  God is saying, “Feelings tell us what we see and know about today but hope tells us that today’s problem is preparation for tomorrow’s power.”  In other words, God prepares us for the future through today’s experiences.
 
God sees in full what we see in part.  We see today, God sees destiny.  We see what we want, God sees what we need for the future.  We see hurt, God sees maturing, growing, evolving. We see loss, God sees gain for potential, promise and His plans for us.  You see the worst thing that could have ever happened, God sees a door opening for the best thing that could ever happen for your destiny (Romans 8:28, Ephesians 1:11). 
 
In every experience there’s a reaction, a decision and an action.  After we’ve reacted to or felt the experience, we only have one of two places to go with those feelings.  We can go deeper into our feelings or go higher in our purpose.  We have the power and the control to do either, and whichever one we choose will decide our actions.  Feelings that keep us stuck, miserable or fearful are based on False Evidence Appearing Real — FEAR.
 
We’ve all sat in our feelings — unforgiveness, guilt, sadness, anger, grief and unhappiness, longer than we should have, and we know that nothing good has ever come from it.  We’ve put our lives on hold, we’ve hurt ourselves because someone hurt us and we’ve allowed lingering feelings to make us bitter and not better.  It can take time, and sometimes it will take help but the destiny mind knows that it’s OK to have a breakdown as long as we don’t unpack and stay there.  
 
We walk in destiny and potential even while we’re walking through a valley. Put this in your spirit: We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation (Romans 5;3-4). Destiny says, “No matter what, I win.”
 
When we rise up and walk out of negative feelings, we choose destiny over defeat.  We choose to put our faith in God’s plan.  We choose to work through it and to grow from it.  When we choose destiny, we choose to balance life with truth, and to trust God’s plans for our life (Jeremiah 29:11).  When we choose destiny, we choose to intentionally refuse every lie that comes up against our truth, and to declare victory in advance. 
 
Share and be blessed.

The Struggle Is Real

The struggle is real. We’ve all heard that before and we know that there is nothing easy about this faith walk. You can be on the mountaintop one day and in the valley the next. Some days you got it going on and some days you got to pray to get out of the bed.
 
What makes the struggle really real is when we add expectation to it. Expectation for more, for better, for a shift or a breakthrough. You were fine when you didn’t want more but if you noticed, as soon as you said, “I want more,” as soon as you started to get back up, as soon as you started working on it, as soon as you started climbing out, all hell started to break loose.
 
People started acting crazy, stable turned unstable, comfortable turned uncomfortable, good was no longer good enough, strong was no longer strong enough, emotions started to have a mind of their own, and joy stopped getting up when you did. Don’t Panic.
 
You won’t struggle in Christ until you start pushing in Christ. A faith struggle can only come from a faith push. Struggle without a push is not a faith struggle, it’s just a life problem. A faith struggle is bigger than we are. A faith struggle happens when the natural starts to access the supernatural promises of God.
 
The enemy wants to block this delivery. The enemy wants you to forget about the price you’ve already paid and walk away from this promise. You’re pushing for supernatural and you are being supernaturally attacked — “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).
 
The enemy is not interested in us when we aren’t interested in the supernatural, the impossible, the divine pardon, the grace escape, the Goliath victory. When you demanded more, when you made up your mind to claim your victory, when you started going after your recovery, your healing, your promotion, your dream, your breakthrough, the enemy said, “Not over his dead tricks” (1 Peter 5:8).
 
The struggle showed up because you rose up. You declared war. When you started going after your more the enemy started going after your mind — and now you have to get into position to fight right (Isaiah 26:3). Put this in your spirit: “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). Submitted to God is the position that we have to be in to resist the struggles caused by the enemy (Psalm 94:19).
 
When the struggle comes — mental or emotional, step back, put it down, pray and wait on the Lord. You’re entering a new level, the next level of faith that you need grace for (2 Corinthians 12:9).  You’re being blessed beyond your comfort zone, above your last level of faith, and now you’re going to have to square up with truth, mind up to see and hear the enemy coming, and God up to go up: “But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
 
Remember, sometimes we have to thin out our circle, put people on a time out and remove negative people when we’re in a power struggle. When you fight the fight, a friend to your weakness is an enemy to your greatness.  Keep your circle tight, your faith right, your fight right and with God, everything will turn out right.
