The Strength Only He Can Give!
It is God who girded me with strength and make my way perfect. (Psalm 18:32)
At one time in my life, circumstances overwhelmed me. Fear tried to rule every day of my life for the very unexpected journey I found myself in at that time.
It was kind of like the inner pep talk would go from “well it can’t get any worse or maybe it can to God’s got this!”
Most of the time that was my conversation with myself before my feet would hit the floor in the mornings.
It was like my life had taken one wild detour and I was feeling like God packed up and moved on without me.
During this time, I didn’t just pray, but cried out with every fiber of my being. I needed more than just another sermon illustration.
It was a time when I not only needed to know God was near, but that he would see me through. I needed the strength only He could give me.
He equipped me with that strength and my feet did not slip.
I want to say if you feel like for one minute to give up, you don’t have to comprehend the whole journey.
You only need strength to make that one more step. God’s Plans is always bigger and better than ours!
The top of your mountain may seem far fetched right now, but when it is all out of control, just know that God has it all under control. He is equipping you with the strength only he can give!
I have been in that pit stuck in the miry clay, I have been in the fiery furnace when it seemed the devil turned it up ten times hotter.
I have been in some pretty low valleys where darkness and fear wanted to rule me. I have been in the lions den where the enemy would love to have devoured me.
Oh but my feet held his steps and kept his ways and did not decline. When he tried me, I came forth as gold!
So I pray that infusion of His Mighty strength only God can give to fill you right now in the place and valley you find yourself in.
Giving up is not an option! You came too far to turn back now! It is that strength that caused me to soar above this in my own life and you shall do the same.
This desert will bloom. The rivers will run through this wilderness and that mountain in your way is sinking into the sea.
The dawn is breaking in that valley. You are getting back up and your King, sweet Precious King Jesus, that name that is above every name and like honey to my lips. He is equipping you with the strength that only He can give.
You are not meant to just survive, but to thrive!
Sitting in The Ash
So here you are, sitting among the pile of ash, holding on to something that just did not work out or go the way you had hoped.
God is saying, “If you will let go of the ashes, put on a new attitude, I will do for you what I did for Job — I will not only bring you out, but I will bring you out with twice what you had before.”
God has promised beauty for those ashes.
I hear The LORD say, “Let it go and move forward! Don’t keep looking back because you are not going that way!”
He Has Promised You Rain!
A mist is a visible watery vapor suspended in the atmosphere near the surface of the ground.
It can also be referred to as a haze and fog. There are some still living in the mist. It is time to move from the mist to the rain.
He has promised you rain!
Some of you it seems are in a boat on the river, just floating down the river unsure and hesitant to step out in any deep waters.
Some of you simply stand on the banks praying for those in the boat, because it is more comfortable for you on the dry shores.
I’m about to pull you all in, because when it starts raining, I want everybody to get wet.
The difference between “mist” and “midst” is the letter “D”. Think about that for one moment.
The Divine One,The Deliverer, The Daystar, The Dew and The Door. Without Jesus in the “midst”, all we have is a “mist.”
What we need is the rain, but so many times we become satisfied living in the “mist.” This is a dry, dusty, and dead world and the only remedy is Spiritual Rain. Keep praying till you begin to feel the drops.
The Church prayed until they heard the knock. Hannah prayed until she felt the kicking. Paul and Silas prayed until they felt the shaking.
Daniel prayed until he felt the touch. Jonah prayed until his prayer came in. Do not accept anything as final.
I hear The LORD say, “Go and look again!”
Many of you have been looking and saw nothing like the servant of the prophet Elijah, but God is saying go back and see.
It took seven times until the servant beheld a cloud as small as a man’s hand or fist. The drought is coming to an end.
The spiritual famine is coming to a close. You are on the cusp of an out-pour of God’s blessings.
Keep praying! Keep pressing! Keep pushing! We are moving from the mist to the rain!
It is Coming!
I came to prophesy to someone who, just like the man at The Pool of Bethesda, you have been overlooked, crowded out, passed over, and pushed out.
But you are getting ready to get in. This man stared endlessly at that water, watching for the slightest ripple, saying to himself. “Don’t miss it this time!” for hours and days and weeks, months, and years.
It seemed however each time the ripple came, another stepped in before him.
I am sure his heart sank each time he realized he had missed it again. I am talking to someone or perhaps several today who has watched other people get blessed, get healed, get promoted, get that new car.
You need or desire those things too, but It looks to you from all natural evidence that it will never be you.
But The LORD said to tell you, “It is coming,” (Be not weary in well doing for in due season you shall reap if you faint not).
I want to encourage somebody today who is on the verge of quitting. You are ready to shut down, turning off the switch of faith, you have questioned if it is even worth it.
Somebody’s Dream is on life support and your about to pull the plug, you have been in the fight of your life and you just don’t feel like you have got any fight left.
To you I say: Hold on, faith never quits!
One of the main ingredients of this mans miracle was his persistence, even though he had missed his miracle time and time again, and he had watched other people get in the water ahead of him, he kept coming.
He pressed through the pain, he pressed through the discouragement. When gumption and unction come together, you have got some power to function.
God said: “I have been watching you, and you may have been overlooked by others, and you may have been left out by others. But you are My Choice, and it’s your turn now!”
