Luke 24:49 And behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
Sometimes, the command from the Lord is to wait where He tells you to receive the power heaven will send. God‘s ways are higher and we don’t understand how He has orchestrated the events in our lives. He has put together all the pieces to fit what He plans to do. We listen and follow.
At times, when your valley has felt more like a long vast desert it may seem insurmountable to face the mountain - the challenges - ahead.
What I have learned as I’ve gone through many - is that the enemy can only take what I release to him. My mouth. It’s what creates or destroys my reality. So I have to be determined to face myself and look at what I’m saying.
What we speak has so much power. We don’t realize just how powerful we are. When I feel like I’m in a sink hole I do a few things. Maybe these will help you. 🌿 First, I listen to the Word of God through
who ministers to me. I do this daily - and if I’m in a funk I stay with listening until I feel it lift. 🌿
Second, I get clean. I ask the Lord to cleanse me - and also try and identify what I’m troubled about - and ask what I’m doing or what I’m believing that is causing my power to diminish. 🌿
Third, I forgive any and all that I’m upset with. Recently, I repeated what had been done to me to someone else. That gave the offense a double level of authority to trouble me. So I forgave and repented the offender and asked the Lord to help them.
These three things may seem small - but in kingdom value they are big. Things like unforgiveness can act like a giant who blocks us on our path. We don’t know why we are stuck. If you want complete freedom and the power God wants for you, follow these steps and see what happens.
Shalom my friends! Blessings all around!
