Something I’ve been thinking about today and wanted to share. When a problem arises in our life, we have to remember that God already had a plan for our breakthrough and victory over the situation prior to it ever happening. He is all-seeing and all-knowing, which means He is never surprised when the enemy attacks. Although you may feel caught off guard or taken back by the present situation, this is not so for God. He is never shocked or surprised trying to figure out what to do to help His children. As humans, a lot of times we get so caught up in our feelings or emotions, when we shouldn’t. Instead we have to get up, shake the dust off our feet, and do our part. I will reiterate, DO OUR PART. Let God do the ‘super’ and you do the ‘natural’. No matter what the situation is, we must never lose focus. If we focus on God and not the problem, we will see that He is so much bigger. How do we focus on God??? We worship Him, we praise Him, we love on Him, we serve Him with a spirit of obedience, we spend time with Him and while doing this we will begin to see the manifestation of His solution. This will also allow us to be in tune with His spirit so we can hear from Him clearly as He gives guidance and direction on how to move forward.
The element of surprise can be a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing. I remember one situation that took place in my life that really shocked me. I know that people can be so fickle at times, which is why for a vast majority of my life I have kept to myself, but every know and then I let people in. This particular person did something that really shocked me and I remember when it happened, I prayed and asked God to never let me experience that again. I asked Him to quicken my spirit and help me increase my discernment so that I won’t be caught off guard like that ever again. I do believe that He heard my prayer because since then, I can honestly say that I haven’t felt that way. Not to say that people haven’t done crazy things, but God has always prepared me both mentally and spiritually on how to deal. And I believe that He will continue to do just that.
That being said, I’d like to end on this note…You will never be an exceptional person if you continue to combat only ordinary battles. Everything you are going through, surprise or no surprise, is making you stronger and EXCEPTIONALLY into the unique, distinctive individual that God created you to be. #iDeclare #Healreadyknows
Heavenly Father, I thank you for this day. I come thanking you God because I do believe that you already know everything that has happened, is happening and will happen in my life. I trust in you and I decree and declare that from now on, I will do my part. I can do nothing without you however, so please God take my hand and lead me. Don’t ever allow the enemy to surprise me or catch me off guard. Help me to be in tune with your spirit and increase my discernment. Thank you for hearing my prayer Lord. In Jesus name, Amen.
