Shifting and Changing are two different things. Yet they go hand in hand.
As you boldly shift this 2016 year, don”t let others hold you to your past. When Lot was told to leave, it was abrupt, swift and no time for explanations, (Genesis 19).
In fact, Lot’s wife was told not to even look back at Sodom and Gomorrah. Looking back, destroyed her. There are some people who were in your life that have refused to make changes and still want that Sodom and Gomorrah lifestyle, sexually immoral, disobedient, rebellious with No conviction.
Its crucial that you be firm. Don’t let your kindness become a weakness. Be vigilant about rejecting their influence. Be honest, but not bitter.
God is merciful, but He is still Holy. He says, “I AM Holy, therefore be ye Holy.” Not religious, but Holy, meaning “sanctified in Truth”.
God hates religion, but honors righteous living, (Romans 1). We live in the ear tickling era, where folks only want what feels good. But growth does not always feel good, it can be very painful.
The Holy Spirit will help you if you let Him. Conviction leads to Repentance. Perhaps they will repent for their own sake, but don’t you detour. Stay the Course. Don”t be manipulated.
Satan is very crafty. GOD TOLD YOU NOT TO LOOK BACK. SO LET THEM GO. My God, the Lord says its crucial now! You are not the Savior, Jesus is. Sodom and Gomorrah had gotten so bad, they had no conviction for their sexual immorality! They burned with lust. God destroyed the whole city because of it.
These days, people will try to justify their lifestyles of drinking excessively, smoking weed, sexing outside of covenant marriage, but God is not pleased. Help your people, choose to live Holy in 2016 and beyond.
He is the same God, yesterday, today and forevermore. I speak as I am commanded, as His Servant, Prophet, Apostle, I am sent to deliver His messages, (Amos 4:7-8).
Please don’t take this lightly. As much as this will be an Awesome year for the Faithful and obedient, this will be a very challenging year for the REBELLIOUS. So much is going to be restored. Lets remain prayerful. Many WILL turn, but not until after they learn. Stay your course.
God has shifted you and moved you in a whole different direction, so don’t entertain foolishness. Focus. Be intentional. Be direct, says the Spirit of the living God. Be of good courage.
The enemy roams about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour, He will not devour you this 2016 year if you hearken to My voice. MY PLANS ARE IN PLACE. MOVE WITH ME, says the Lord.
Rise Up and Be who God made you. Do not lose your intentional focus. Remember its God that Opens doors no man can Shut and its God who also closes doors NO MAN can OPEN. You will frustrate youself trying to open doors God has already Shut!
You can shift gears and not necessarily change the direction you’re traveling in, however in this case, God requires both. Let Him lead you to those Green pastures, and still waters. The Best is truly yet to COME. Embrace the New, Change your direction. And SHIFT!
