This is not a time to shrink back or be silent, no this a time to pursue purpose! I believe we are in a season of God’s divine time. A particular time of favor which can propel you into a place of abundance that can change everything! I sense in my spirit and see into our reality – the tangible manifestations of the Hand of God working things out for our good. I have experienced seasons where it seemed as if everything around me was going wrong. It’s like I couldn’t get a break! You know what I mean because we have all had those times and seasons where all hell broke loose over our lives. Second Corinthians 4:7 describes it like this,
“We are troubled on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.”
This is a vivid picture of the sufferings we go through at certain times in our lives. But, the joy in these situations is that it works in us an exceeding and eternal glory, which empowers us with greater strength. It is during these times we can assure ourselves of the unseen blessings that are on the way. I have learned to be attentive to life’s challenges that come because they reveal the blessings of tomorrow.
I’ve been experiencing some major health issues these last couple of weeks. I have battled bladder infections, sinus problems, and now a very painful stomach ache, which has lasted almost two weeks. I sought God in prayer this morning concerning what’s happening. He assured me that I am on the right path. Trouble seems to come in extreme measures right before a major breakthrough. This is the enemy’s greatest strategy. He tries to divert us from our blessings by getting us so frustrated with physical or mental distress that we give up. But God said, “Don’t shrink back. Don’t stop moving forward! Your next step will be your best step!”
As you move through this week remember these words, stir them up in your heart, and determine to accomplish everything you’ve envision! Pursue your dreams with all your heart. Let nothing hinder you this week. Know that trials and tribulations will come, but it’s only a sign that you are getting closer to fulfillment of your goals! Do not hold back or wait around hoping something will happen! Pursue, Pursue, Pursue!
