Sometimes, if you’re not careful, you can find yourself deviating from the original blueprint and plans that God has originated for your life. You can find yourself connected to a good idea in the Kingdom, but a bad idea for your purpose.
Throughout my walk in ministry, I have always relied on God to connect me to people and to open the doors that He wanted me to walk in. He told me to never allow anybody but Him to direct me, and I always have tried to walk in that way.
My walk with God is not centered on making my name great, but that He will be glorified and honored through the works I do in His name. My motivation in my service to God is that in all I do that I would be pleasing to Him.
In this hour, God is demanding a true place of leadership in our lives. He is not calling us to develop greater ways of fleecing the people or supporting their sins, but He is calling us to enhance His Kingdom and to bring the people heart back to Him.
These last sixty days have been days of readjustment, realignment, pushing, pulling, scraping, cutting, gutting, purging, shaping, molding and restoring. They have been intense days of warfare and battles, but yet victories have taking place, elevations have occurred, transformation and transiting, have come about.
God has moved mightily to bring His purpose to pass and to process us, so that we can be strengthen and brought to a place of true holiness and righteousness.
He is putting us under the microscope and examining us very carefully, presenting us with a mirror that only shows our reflection and nobody else’s. He is allowing our flaws to be addressed and not letting us get away with anything.
Many are perplexed, because they are wondering, “Why am I experiencing all of these challenges,” “Why am I going through so much right now?”
It’s because God is saying the time has come for you to prepare for the assignments for the last days and you can’t go forth in a unfinished spiritual condition. So He is doing a deep cleansing on us and bringing us to a place in our spiritual walk which will cause us to be usable and validated before the people on behalf of God’s Kingdom!
