Sometimes my life feels like a scene from a movie. Right now I would say that I am on the edge of something great. But this is a literal edge, and something evil is pursuing me. I must jump off the edge and believe flight is possible in order to get to a place that I was destined to be. I cannot stay lazy in this moment. I cannot stay selfish, or lose precious time sitting on the sidelines doubting.
This destiny has been spoken over me but I have to put in the hard work to make it a reality, if that makes any sense. My first daily task is to believe. I must believe that I can accomplish greatness as I allow Christ to work through me. I must believe that he wants to use my talents to bless others. My belief has been sideswiped by doubt many times, the doubt that says I cannot make a huge attack on the gates of hell. These gates are strong and the gatekeepers come against me relentlessly. They attack my health, my finances, my marriage, and the worst attacks are the ones on my mind.
But I know how powerful Jesus truly is despite my failure and weakness. He has told me he would do this great work through me. I have his promise so I continue to get back up through the assaults. He has shown me clearly that all the powers of hell cannot overtake me. They are like having a nightmare…they can only scare you for a moment, but they can go no further.
God is in the business of glorifying himself. He allowed his servant Joseph to be mocked and taken into slavery only to later be risen to royalty because God was on his side. So many times in scripture when people exalted themselves against others, it was those “others” that God rose up. God likes to flip the script.
When you struggle, and hell is coming against you, and you decide to stand and not cower, walk forward and not waiver, believe and not doubt, you should be prepared because God is up to something.
