What’s the Lord asking you to do today? That thing that you know that you know that you know He has called you to. Put on your running shoes and get ready! It’s time to run into destiny. Jesus has you covered.
You don’t have to agree with every thought and doubt that comes into your mind. The Word of God tells you who you are. You don’t have to agree with the lies and doubts of naysayers. You don’t need everyone else to agree with what the Lord has spoken over your life for Him to fulfil His promises to you. Only you have to agree.
That thought you have that you aren’t worthy and aren’t enough is not from Him. That lie you keep believing that if you step out of the boat onto the water in obedience to Him, you will sink – is not from Him.
We don’t serve a dead Jesus. We serve a living Jesus. We believe because He fellowships with us. He is alive among His people and He lives in you, if you have accepted Him as Lord and Saviour.
He who is in you is greater than the prince of this world.
(No weapon formed against you shall prosper…” (Isaiah 54:17)
Jesus said He created the destroyer to create a weapon for His work. So you’ve been through some stuff? All the enemy has done is shape you for God’s purposes. Did you know that the word ‘Gethsemane’ means ‘oil press’. Have some people betrayed you or hurt you? Been under some pressure? The weight of Gethsemane, the oil press, is what the Lord uses to squeeze out the anointing, that purpose and gift He has placed in you. The destroyer has only served His purposes.
He gave you those running shoes for you to wear and use. They’ve sat on the shelf too long collecting dust.
You’re waiting for Him. Maybe He’s waiting for you.
Dust off your shoes and get ready. It’s time to run.
“See, it is I who created the blacksmith
who fans the coals into flame
and forges a weapon fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc;
no weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the Lord.” (Isaiah 54:16,17)
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognise the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.” (1 John 4:4)
