You are more than welcome Autumn and a Merry Christmas to you too! Blessings and Peace!
Last week we discussed and emphasized please stop being a garbage can or landfill for everyone’s problems. Hang out an “Out of Business—Leveling the Ground” sign. You can’t help anyone when you are damaged. If you try, you will find yourself like one of the Avengers after the Infinities War. Obliterated into some strange situation, that tried to steal your true identity by taking your confidence away! (Hebrews 10:35-36)
In your desperation to find the truth, get and stay in the company of those who will justly be in agreement with you, and sincerely pray. For those with whom you are in just agreement will not abandon you when you find yourself in desperate situations. But will fight the battle with you on their knees. It is written: “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20-22) Then not only will you be able to keep on the whole armor of God, but will also be wearing a mantle of His spiritual gifts over it. So when you take a hit it is not so damaging and you have a quicker recovery time; to fight battles for the Kingdom of the utmost importance.
Sometimes you will find your blessing is in the enemy’s camp: with people who detest you. A job they don’t want you on, or even a neighborhood where you are really not welcomed. Get up from there! You have to get desperate with the mindset of the four lepers, at the Samarian gate. (2 Kings 7:3-20) God will drive your enemies from before your face. Did you ever stop to think they possess your blessings just to deliver them to you?
This is not your end…
Aren’t you tired of the enemy running all over you? This is your time, your season. This is not your end, but your new beginning. And in this new beginning, as you work your faith; these changes will further define the REAL you. Your new found faith and you will walk away conquerors. (Philippians 4:13) And this new level of faith will defy human nature by manifesting the power of God in your life.
You see, Jesus did not die on the cross so when problems come our way—we ignore them by focusing on something else. No, he died so when problems come our way—we face them head on, and focus on Him through the application of His word, prayer and faith for the ultimate solution.
Then you will be able to say, with a truth; “This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.” (Psalm 118:23) And those around you will see. Although considered an outcast, you were not only able to outlast your troubles; but also victoriously overcome them. And with an added bonus — blessings you never deemed possible!
Thank you for your continued support. Until next week…Blessings and Peace.
