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!
