I began this year wearing my fear as humility. Despite my knowledge of God’s plans for me, I buckled under the weight of its heavenly reality. Sis was scared! Sis was declaring but holding onto disbelief.
I know that for many, 2020 is the year they’d love to forget but for me it is one I will always remember. It is the year that I began facing the very real and imminent threat to my destiny…. Me. It is the year that I decided to push beyond the fear and walk in the confidence of Christ’s love and sovereignty. I’ve had to face myself, and I am here to tell you that the version of me that entered 2020 was a formidable and stubborn opponent but she didn’t stand a chance against me!
I have decided that I will not be the conduit of breakthrough without experiencing it myself. I have also decided that becoming the solution is infinitely more powerful than just sharing solutions. A few years ago my former pastor declared something over me that I have never forgotten. He declared “Lord do not let her bring deliverance to others and miss it for herself”. May we be deliverers who operate from experience and power.
Drought & Disbelief
Whether it is opposition, self doubt, lack, fear or trauma that is drying up your belief in the Lord – choose to believe His truth today and walk in authority. God’s promises are sure but our belief is optional. God is bound by His word, but He does not infringe upon the free will of humanity – there is a disbelief clause. If you choose not to believe, you have chosen to forfeit the fruit of the promise. Let’s look at an example.
Numbers 2:12 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe in me, to uphold me as holy in the eyes of the people of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land that I have given them.”
Moses was in a tight spot. The people he led were coming against him and he had no resources to fulfill their request. He went before The Lord and received a solution but veered away from God’s divine plan. It was the disbelief in Moses and Aaron that caused them to miss the promised land – it was about more than striking a rock. Moses committed a public display of disbelief in the Lord and lost his life and the ability to walk into what God had been preparing for His people for 40 years.
Moses got the view from the mountain but never set foot in the promised land, may we be partakers and not mere witnesses of God’s deliverance.
Points to ponder:
- Your perspective may lie, but God doesn’t.
- God is a deliverer, whether you arrive at the promise is your decision.
- Your faith is your responsibility, steward over it well.
- You will never believe in a God you do not know, talk to Him daily.
I don’t know about you, but I do not want the contingency plan of God! I do not want my life to end without me apprehending and creating the impact I was born to make on the earth. God’s plans for us are sure and they are good.
I will not settle, and neither should you!
