Life is serious business, but it was designed to be lived in joy! In order to do that, you will have to decide to have confidence in God’s ability to hold you and to make a way for you, even in the face of the impossible. His immense love is more powerful than the sum of all your setbacks and mistakes.
The greatest problem with being human, is your humanity: the missed steps, the feeling of helplessness, and the inertia born out of failure. It’s all very well to know the theory about how to manage the challenges of life; it’s another thing entirely to deal with them.
It’s like when you read those books about giving birth to your baby, and then when it’s your turn to be in labor, the theory goes out the window! Or when you read books about how to have a successful marriage, but when you hit a problem, it seems like the page with your answer on must have been torn out!
God has sent an agent of His personal help and empowerment into this Earth, and He is called the Holy Spirit. Have you received Him? He is your helper, your advocate, the One who fights for you; and while everyone and everything else seems to say that you are going down, He declares that He will lift you up!
Even in my mistakes, and at my worst, I have learned – God will help you. He can be trusted, and He will never mismanage your life. He will work behind the scenes so that the things that you don’t understand will become the source of your greatest joy.
Your God can be trusted!
I thank God for opening doors and also for closing doors in my life, and I have learnt the surprising fact that God is a manipulator! He knows how to orchestrate events and to put the right people in your life at the right time. Nowadays I think Him for the nasty people as well as the nice ones who show up!
There are some people about whom you are thinking right now, that if they were to walk away from you, your life would be over, but in ten years you will be thanking God that they left! God knows how to harden Pharaoh’s heart to bring about His purpose, and His perspective is not the same as yours.
In fact, you will only understand why God does what He does and who He uses for His glory, when you understand that His burden and first priority is His redemptive purpose in the Earth. We thought Jonah was rebelling, but God used his life to set a type and shadow of redemption. We would have thought that Rehab was nothing more than a prostitute, who had no business playing a part in His divine plan, but God saw an individual who would move His purposes forward.
Even when things don’t seem to be working out right for you, and your best plans are not taking shape as you think they should, remember that God is able to work it all for your good. Even the things that are confusing you today, and that you are not happy about, God will turn it for your good.
The best decision you can ever make it to yield to Him and to His greater purpose with your life. God knows how to pick you out of a crowd and how to lift you up when the odds are stacked against you.
Don’t give up on yourself or your life, but lean on the Holy Ghost and let Him show you things to come. Let Him know that from now on it is His responsibility to take you to the place of your destiny and to perfect everything that concerns you.
Use the power of your own mouth to declare with me that from now on you will have the privilege to be invited to the behind the scenes opportunities where the real advantage is and that you will only meet people who would rightly value and esteem the person you are and the work of your hands.
I decree that today will be that ONE DAY of favor which will yield more than what a thousand days of labor can produce. The enemy will not steal your harvest neither will malice sabotage your promotion and increase, not this time. Like Ruth, I declare that you will have so much FAVOR that by the time your story ends, you will end up OWNING the same field where you are presently only gleaning handfuls in the corners.
May the blessings of heaven above overwhelm your life today in every way in Jesus Name. Blessing you as always. Peace be with you.
