In the midst of going through the process in preparing for the what He has promised. It will require a laying down of things, a dying to self, a metamorphism kind of process will take place during this time. In order to increase you must decrease. The flesh must die, old habits, behaviors, areas that will keep you stuck and stagnant from growing spiritually and maturing in Christ.
When God is ready to promote you and move you into His plans, there will be a sudden decrease in your inner circle, sometimes betrayal, loss, or things may even seem out of order. In reality, things are actually coming together and aligned.
When the Lord wants you to carry more of Him, His heart, His presence and who He is. It requires a complete yes and yieldness to Him and His ways. He knows better and sees farther than you do. The more you lay down for Him the greater He increases in you. Saying yes is but a word but a very powerful, potent word that brings you into agreement with Him! The King of Kings!
As Kathryn Kuhlman stated, "The anointing will cost you everything but it is worth it."
There is nothing better and worth more than carrying His presence, His heart, and being a reflection of Him. You can find many things in this life to try and fill a void that only He alone can fill. As there is nothing better and more sweeter than having an intimate relationship with Jesus, as He calls us friends.
When you give him your yes and say Lord have your way. You give Him access to do what He needs to do in you and through you. The increase only comes when you make the choice to yield alone to Him.
Sometimes we are waiting for breakthrough when sometimes He is just waiting on us to align so He can release the breakthrough!
I want to encourage those were expecting breakthrough this weekend, breakthrough did happen.There was a huge shift that took place that brought divine alignment, order and put things into proper place. Breakthrough always happens in the spiritual realm first before we see it in the natural. We must see with the eyes of the spirit and not the natural. Trusting the Lord that He is working for you in every detail, every prayer, and according to His word.
Keep in mind when a baby is being born, the labor pains, the tension, the wrestle to push through may be uncomfortable, it may seem tiresome and hard. This is the transition taking place of going into the new. This is part of the birthing process of a promise. Things will always look opposite to what the Lord spoke before you see a tangible manifestation. It will look worse, chaotic or complete opposite to what the Lord spoke.
It is easy to get hopeless, discourage, or exhausted in that place. As the enemy wants you to abort, give up during the birthing process so he can delay it longer.
We must understand the Lord works outside of our understanding, ways and timing. In that place will come a maturity in character in waiting on the timing of the Lord and not going ahead of Him. There is a deeper level of trust and intimacy with the Lord that accompanies doing it His way.
Yielding to the Lords way of doing things and bringing the promises to pass will far outweigh your battle. In the process of preparation of the promise the Lord is enlarging your capacity, maturing you, and getting you ready to handle the increase, promotion and breakthrough.
Otherwise, we can easily mess it up because we are not emotionally and spiritually prepared. The Lord wants you to be able to steward the increased with wisdom and integrity. So that you don't fall into pride and lose the breakthrough or forget the Lord in the midst of breakthrough.
In the process we will become more spiritually in-tuned and aware of what is going on so we can know what to pray, how to stand, when to move, and where He is leading. He wants use to steward the increase in purity also so that we do not go ahead of His timing or plans. The Lord uses the process to increase your faith and trust in Him otherwise when the breakthrough comes will can begin to think it was us when it was all Him who did it.
So I want to encourage those who are not sure what is going on and feeling like the head in a tailspin. The Lord is moving, working and bring incredible breakthrough that is upon the body of Christ. It is not another going around the mountain or ways months. We are transitioning into the land of promise, increase and the next level. There is acceleration happening even more so as the Lord is bringing who word to pass to those who are positioned and heart ready for the increase!
The baby just got birthed so do not give the enemy the ground the Lord just gave you. The enemy is roaring right now lies, fear and anxiety because the increase is here! I want to encourage those who are tired and hopeless PLEASE hold on to your hope and faith the Lord is moving!! Resurrection power is flowing and He is crushing everything standing in the way. You must have faith as a child and believe that Jesus can! Body of Christ suit up and get ready because breakthrough is here! The power of agreement will shift the atmosphere for the miraculous.
I believe and I also want to encourage those to believe in the Lord He is for you!The cloud of confusion will dissipate as you go higher to see from His perspective and from there revelation and clarity will flow. You will begin to see what the Lord is doing and joy will bubble up in you as what He reveals refreshes your spirit!
In this season wisdom will carry you further as you steward what He has placed in your hands!
Get your hopes up high because the impossible is truly upon many!
There are times where it may seem utterly hopeless, desolate and even barren. But, the Lord can make rivers in the desert. In the most driest places of your life HE can suddenly spring forth LIFE where it was once barren. He is the ressurrector of ALL things. The only one who holds all power and authority.
Isaiah 41:18 "I will open up rivers for them on the high plateaus. I will give them fountains of water in the valleys. I will fill the desert with pools of water. Rivers fed by springs will flow across the parched ground."
Where there has been hard ground, ground that has never been broken but just barrenness...It is the resurrection power that comes to SUDDENLY strike the ground. It is HIS power that causes things to break open. He is the life giver to everything. In the those dry hard places is where you come to know the Lord more intimately. He uses those hard times and trials to draw you closer to him.
Revelation 16:18 "And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty."
When the Lord is ready to bring his word to pass at the APPOINTED TIME in your life. He will suddenly manifest his word and step into your Krono's time to bring you a Kairo's moment. It is like Sarah who was in old age and barren to have children. But, the Lord made her a promise that she would have a son, an aire to Abraham's lineage. When the appointed time came for her to have that child it came to pass suddenly.
Hebrews 11:11 "By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised."
Sarah received power from God in her womb to conceive the child that the Lord promised her. It was by faith she received the power, an impartation to bring forth the promise. The Lord resurrected her barren womb suddenly to bring forth the manifestation of the word of God over her and Abraham's life. This was hard ground in their life that was barren and lifeless. They had no children to carry on the lineage. Not only did God make a promise but he multiplied it for Abraham because of his test of character and faith towards God.
Many times we are tested over and over in areas of our character, faith and where our heart is with the Lord. But, there is always hope and assurance that will fulfill his word and bring all that he has promised to pass in your life!
This scripture came to mind and reminded me that no matter how hard it may seem to love the unlovable, the unreachable, even your enemies...
Mark 12: 30-31 "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’[a] 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] There is no commandment greater than these."
He once spoke to me.. "Your not loving them with your love Lorilei but with my love. Out of that place of intimacy with me..out of the overflow of your relationship with me you love them."
When you love people, you love with with HIS love. It is an unconditional never ending love. The more you LOVE God and spend time with him, the more he enlarges your capacity to carry and pour out that unconditional love to others. The more you began to love others with a greater love. You learn and receive his love from being int he secret place. When you love on him FIRST and you will began to start loving and seeing others through HIS eyes of love. Your capacity to love becomes greater and enlarged. You began to have room to carry more of the unconditional love of God that you can in return pour into others.
The MORE you began to learn compassion towards others. The way you reach people is through the LOVE of Jesus. There is no greater love than HIS love.This was the greatest commandment Jesus taught was to love others the way HE loved!Your love walk should be so tight with the Lord that your cup is constantly running over to others. Spilling and dripping with the agape love. There is no greater fulfillment than getting the revelation and understanding of the love of God!
