There’s some things you want from God, spiritually, but you’re gonna have to fight for it, just like you do for those things in the natural. Just because God knows the desires of your heart doesn’t mean He’s gonna do all the work for you. You don’t have to know how to right all your wrongs, just give God a willing heart to work with! You’ve gotta make the conscious effort to find out what it is that’s keeping you bound & WHY you’re bound to it! Most times we just wanna know what, but it’s the WHY that keeps us going back! It’s the WHY that teaches us. The WHY is the root! Figuring THAT out will stop it from growing, because we will no longer FEED into what we KNOW is slowing us down! Pluck that thing up & CURSE it in the name of Jesus! Once you know better, do better, because GOD holds you accountable. Confess the hell you’ve caused in your own life & fight to heal it!
Ok, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get into the bulk of this message.
About a week ago, God really began to deal with me on a certain matter, but yesterday He clearly said to me, “What are you fighting for? You seem to have forgotten.” God asked me this, because I’d lost my stamina. How quickly did I forget what He brought me out of & how hard I fought to get here!
Last year was the second most trying year of my life. I battled with many things, mentally & spiritually. Things that could have taken me out, if I hadn’t made the decision to FIGHT! I was weighed down with shame, guilt, & depression. My rebellious ways ultimately led me deeper & deeper into sin. Overwhelmed with anxiety, I still was too prideful to go to God for help, so I tried to figure things out on my own. (SMH) I had the tools to fight, but couldn’t even suit up, because I was too consumed with the ways of this world.
Finally, I knew something had to give.
If you’re anything like the (old) me, then you probably deny the (lies) you tell yourself & avoid the truth as long as no one is calling you out on it! It’s funny how we let our own mess pile up, then get mad when someone smells it! But thank God for those who love us enough to tell us about ourselves, right? You may not wanna hear it, but it helps, so take heed!
Anyway, that’s when the fight started. It took a bit of correction & tough love for me to get in alignment. No longer did I neglect what I knew; I applied it! (Put what you know to use!) I went straight to (The Source) for direction. I didn’t go seeking for attention or a pity party. I knew I was wrong! I had to put on my big girl panties, look my flaws directly in the face, & surrender my mess to God!
I had to confess some things to God, that I never planned on saying out of my mouth, because I was so ashamed.
I got in position & prepared to fight. In order to get my peace back, I had to fight. I had to fight for a renewed mind & spirit. I had to fight to restore my relationship with God. I had to fight that thing I knew made me weak. If I wanted deliverance, I had to fight for a breakthrough & fight to stay free!
Even though, I knew it was sincere, I dug deeper. I knew it was gonna take more than one prayer, one confession, one breakthrough, one revelation… I had to get desperate & keep going to God until the battle was won. & even then, I still went back & prayed over those same places to be sure there was no residue!
I promise, it’s not as scary or as hard as you think. The sooner you get started, the sooner your life will be better. APPLY what you KNOW to any area of your life that has become stagnant. When you ACT on it, things HAVE to change. They just have to! 🤷🏽♀️
Peace, love, & prosperity, my friends! 🦋 I pray that this blog brought you inspiration, determination, & the WILL POWER to get up & fight back! Have a blessed week! 💛
