Flowing in the Spirit

As I laid in bed one morning, I was thinking of how the Lord operates. God is a God of overflow and abundance. God is currency and currency functions or operates in a continuous flow or movement. It is not stuck or stagnate. There is no time to resist but persist through opposition and the difficulties of life.

What are the patterns, beliefs, behaviors or mindsets that’s keeping you stuck or stagnate in your life? What resistance are you experiencing? Do you feel like the world is constantly moving but you’re standing still? What cycles keep you spinning your wheels while you exhaust your energy?

Take time to analyze your life. What do you need to change? Is there any fears attached to your thinking or actions? Bring those fears or insecurities to the Lord in prayer. Consult with the Father. Allow the Lord into the intimate areas where you feel or want to control everything. Be honest with yourself. Are there areas where you want to lead your life without the wisdom and direction of God? Are you rebellious or stubborn? The Lord cannot work in any areas of your life where you will not let Him in.

Call on the name of the Lord for help in those areas. Where you are weak, He is strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10 It’s not always about praying and petitioning your request before the Lord. Sometimes, you just have to be still and listen. Wait patiently for direction, a new idea, a plan, or a solution. While you wait, continue to move forward in action. Faith without works is dead. James 2:14-26

It’s within the stillness you can hear His voice, not only physical silence but mentally and emotionally too. Do you have racing thoughts? Are you dealing with confusion and chaos in your mind? Pay attention to what you listen or watch that will rob or steal your peace. Guard your heart and mind. Set boundaries with the people around you. You may not be able to control your whole environment but you can decrease the amount of unnecessary stress or tension by not entertaining or participating in the other people’s drama or issues; in other words, mind your business.

Remain consistent in prayer and begin to make the changes needed. It’s a gradual process so be patient and take the steps needed to change and shift your life. Stay focused and seek clarity.

Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.

Awake

“Son of man, speak to your people and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not heed the warning and the sword comes and takes their life, their blood will be on their own head. Since they heard the sound of the trumpet but did not heed the warning, their blood will be on their own head. If they had heeded the warning, they would have saved themselves. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood.’

“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to the wicked, ‘You wicked person, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for[their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. But if you do warn the wicked person to turn from their ways and they do not do so, they will die for their sin, though you yourself will be saved.

11 Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Ezk 34:2-9, 11

In the Presence of my Enemies

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Psalm 23:5

Oh, rejoice O’daughter of Jerusalem, O’daughter of Zion! Rejoice! We shall eat together in beauty for the redeemer of the Lord has come to redeem us! We shall eat of the land without waste. We shall eat and be joyful. We shall dance for our sorrow has melted away. Flee, Oh sons and daughters of iniquity, sons and daughters of hatred and bitterness. Cast away your nets and be no more! The fruits shall be sweet from the bitter taste of mourning and sorrow. It will be sweet, indeed! Let us come together. Yes! Let us come to the table with thanksgiving for the glory of the Lord has risen upon us.

ISAIAH 25:1-12

O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.

For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.

Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.

For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.

Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.

And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.

He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.

And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

10 For in this mountain shall the hand of the Lord rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.

11 And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.

12 And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.

20 At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord.

Ezk 12:21-28

And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

22 Son of man, what is that proverb that ye have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth?

23 Tell them therefore, Thus saith the Lord God; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision.

24 For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.

25 For I am the Lord: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord God.

26 Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying.

27 Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he seeth is for many days to come, and he prophesieth of the times that are far off.

And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,
