Obedience is the key!
Yes, you sowed the seed that God told you to. Yes, you even sowed the amount He said. Yes, you sowed it in the season and timing that He told you, but you planted it in the wrong ground!
Partial obedience doesn’t count!
Never expect a harvest from a disobedient seed! People sometimes we miss our blessing because we don’t like the ground we are ordered to plant in. I have learned not to look at the vessel but to follow directions. I have sown to those that I know are my enemy but just because they have a problem with me doesn’t hinder me from obedience.
Remember, your harvest is connected to the place of obedience! Sometimes God is trying to accomplish more than just blessing you. Sometimes He is trying to break something in you! Obedience is the key!
This one, right here!
Narcissistic: having an excessive interest in one’s self, vain, self loving, self absorbed, self centered, conceited, egotistic, having an inflated sense of their own importance.
The Spirit of The Lord spoke that word to me as I was waiting before Him and praying about some things concerning the Body of Christ, and all these super anointed people who are always saying somebody is hating on them, or they trying to destroy them, or somebody trying to stop their ministry, or trying to work witchcraft on them.
I’m noticing a growing trend, especially among those whom I notice are not really doing anything, or very little. These are the persons who have something negative to say about anybody who seems to be doing more than them.
What’s scary, is the persons who feed off of these narcissistic leaders, who pass to them the same egotistic behavior and they begin to tear down accuse and attack people.
I have never seen so many people in the Body of Christ with so much pride within them. Nothing brings out the warrior in me like persons who seem to think that they are everybody’s target and everybody is jealous of them, or the anointing they say they carry.
What blows my mind is there is little or no kingdom activity operating in their lives, but they seem to think they are greater than God!
Many have been brought to this self importance illusion by some out-of-control person who had prophesied to them and told them, people are jealous of who they are, and fighting against them with witchcraft, to keep them down.
Can I tell you, that nothing anybody says or does can stop what God has purposed in and for your life?
Can I tell you from experience, that I don’t allow anything or anybody to distract or detour me from the plan of God? That when you know you are in the will of God, and living holy, you are covered, even when the enemy comes to destroy you?
How do we get so delusional, that we think that people who don’t really know us, or don’t interact with us on a daily basic, are jealous or envious of us? And then how do we allow Satan to mess our minds up so bad, that persons who are not even thinking about us, we image is our enemies?
I’m noticing a pattern, that folks are allowing other people to twist their minds into believing that people are after them, fighting them, or working against them, when the person is not even close friends or associated with them.
We imagine we are these great wonders, and our ministry is so great, people are hindering us, when in fact we are just where God wants us to be for the season, because He is working on our character attitude and behavior.
If we put as much importance on uplifting God as we uplift ourselves we won’t get caught up in these prideful acts of the flesh that causes conflicting mental emotions and make us look like we are mentally and spiritually unstable rather than deep and wonderful in God.
Anytime you think everybody is after you, and everybody is trying to harm you, there is something that has gone wrong in your spiritual walk with The Lord! Stop letting these people tell you God is showing you everybody is after you, but them.
There is another spirit in operation when a person is only wanting you to trust and believe only in them. Warlocks, witches, Jezebels, Pharaoh, or somebody with a sexual identity crisis that’s looking at you like their lover, tries to turn you against everybody, or tries to make you think everybody is against you!
They are not trying to protect you – they trying to control you and isolate you!
