“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for
God can be trusted to keep his promise” (Hebrews 10:23, NLT). .
Trusting A Faithful God: Last year, God gave me visions to prepare me for things that would manifest this year and beyond. His voice was crystal clear. His directions were unambiguous. So, what was the problem? Problems! Any time you are close to manifesting in the natural what God has given you in the spirit realm the enemy tries to abort God’s plans. He tries to cause division and create doubt. This is his strategy of deception. You know what? The enemy doesn’t have any power! He has to work through people. People who are not like-minded will become intimidated, envious and your biggest critics. It’s human nature. Instead of being obedient and offering the ministry of encouragement, they strategically try to discourage you so that you will lose focus.
“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see” (11:1).
Spiritual Manifestation: I was reminded that when God gives you a vision, you can’t expect anyone to see it or be responsible for its execution. If you are like me, quick to help others, make sure that it doesn’t take you away from doing what God has instructed you to do. Even when we think we have good intentions, we can be disobedient to God’s voice. Any diversion is a strategy of deception. Why? Because God’s path is straight. He does not plan to take us through the wilderness. We decide to take that path because we waver in our faith and choose not to trust God. When you become so fixated on what God has promised you, you become so focused on taking the steps that God has ordered until you will block negativity and distractions before they enter your spirit. What we internalize will be externalized. Carefully monitor what you receive. It can make the difference in “now faith” and “delayed manifestation”. Whose voice do you trust: A minor critic or a faithful God? Walk in obedience!
With Love in the Spirit,
