While in prayer, The Lord said to me, just bc you’re not where you used to be doesn’t mean to forget where you’re going!
We win a couple of battles & think we’re ready for war! There’s still more work to put in, more corrections & cuts to be made. There’s still more to sacrifice & more to come. You can rest when I say so! You’ve got some catching up to do, bc I called you long ago & you didn’t want to answer. Your destiny awaits you & this time, you WILL make it, so don’t get comfortable! Just bc I delivered you from your mess doesn’t mean you’re entitled! Just bc you don’t struggle with that thing anymore, doesn’t mean it’s not another something on the way! Stay on guard! Stay on your post! Don’t give the enemy space to play in! Blessings are overflowing, prayers are being answered, yeah it’s all good, but don’t get too comfortable! The devil is still lurking!
Being God’s child is not some kind of get out of jail free pass. It’s not an “off limits” or you won’t have to suffer, pass! If anything, it’s gonna draw more warfare! It’s gonna cause the enemy to quickly take his focus off whatever he’s doing to place it on you! Another soul that God has made room for in His kingdom. Ain’t nobody mad but the devil! It is his duty to seek & devour you! He has studied you for so long that he won’t swallow you whole, he’ll present to you everything that makes your flesh weak. He knows what distracts you, so he’ll try you with that. Do not deceive yourself! Do not think you are so wise, that you’ve got it all figured out! Just like blessings come in many forms so does a curse, & the enemy desires to confuse & control you. Especially the way you SEE things. It’ll seem pleasing to the eye, but it’s deadly for your spirit! Walk by faith & not sight! By what you hear from God, not what you see in your circumstances! Do not be deceived! Seek God even when you set goals & accomplish them. There is ALWAYS room for growth! Yes, you’ve come a long way, but there’s still a ways to go! Be willing & open to receive correction. It is for your good!
Some of us have lived our whole lives in sin; ONE deliverance isn’t gonna set us completely free, but once you get a taste of it, maintain that appetite! You’ve gotta feed it in order for it to LIVE! What are you feeding? Your flesh or your spirit? Flesh says, I’m doing pretty good, I don’t have anything to work on. Spirit says, Lord, I’m gonna keep coming to you until YOU find me faithful & pleasing in Your sight! Don’t get too comfortable to stand corrected!
Psalm 119:71 NLT: My suffering was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to Your decrees.
