When we are looking for change to happen in our lives, it’s helpful to position and ready ourselves for things to happen. It’s a bit like being pregnant with a baby and preparing yourself for the new arrival. If you don’t get ready, it’ll be a mad dash when that baby arrives and you and all those around you will more than likely miss some of the wonder of it all.
Whenever a shift or change occurs if we are listening to Gods promptings, He will begin to encourage us to stretch and expand our expectations, our horizons, our vision. He’ll encourage us to deal with issues and to shed any unnecessary weights or distractions. He will start revealing for us to look up and ahead, instead of behind us at our past, or down at the dust of our failures or disappointments. God encourages us to position ourselves so that we don’t miss any of what He is releasing in and over our lives.
Shifts and changes can also mean pushing against constraints, limiting mindsets, unbelief, disappointments, fears and failure. We move past limitations so that we can spread out and increase our capacity to hold and inhabit all God wants to release in our lives. We ready ourselves for what we are believing for.
The bible says that even when we feel barren, when we have nothing, when we are desolate and desperate, that then is the perfect time for us to lift up our eyes and voices to speak what we desire because God has a way through, the victory and the answer. He has the solution and He is on our side.
I’ve learnt over the years to speak out His promises even when I can’t see in the natural how anything is going to change; how the barrenness and difficulties are ever going to be replaced with abundance and blessing. I’ve learnt to not look with my natural eyes, but with eyes of trust and believing that better things are ahead, that angels are right now working on my behalf, that solutions, provision, healing and breakthrough are mine.
Today agree with what’s coming out of heaven and choose to “declare and decree” God’s goodness over your life and over your family, workplace, your future, over your relationships, neighbourhood, city and nation. No longer see yourself under your circumstances but look with eyes of faith, because God has a plan and breaking through for every situation we are facing in our personal lives and in the world today.
“Sing, barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy” (Isaiah 54:1)
“Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:23-24)
Prayer: Lord thank you that breakthrough, expansion, release and change is coming straight out of heaven today. I believe for things to shift and change for the better in every circumstance of my life today. In Jesus name Amen.
