Focus

It’s so important to focus on the reality of who God is because the I AM is greater than any situation we are dealing with or any negative stories we might see on the news. We need to recognize his greatness in all situations. Our focus must stay on him. Focusing on anything else will cause us to look somewhere else for the answer but focusing on God will bring the answers we really need. There is no greater love God has than for his people. There is no greater joy God has than to watch us walk out our destinies. But I believe it breaks God’s heart when we lose our focus because all it takes is one quick second for the enemy to attract our attention and then it is much harder for us to refocus on Jesus. God’s intensions for all of humanity are always good. His desire is to lavish so much love and attention on each one of us but he wants us to lavish our love on him as well. Turn your affection towards him. Turn your focus towards him. It’s difficult to look past the difficulties, struggles, hurts, hang-ups, and disappointments but the answer to all of these problems is found in him. All it takes is one intentional step towards Jesus to get the ball rolling.

There is freedom, you don’t have to settle with just coping. Pursue him, pursue intimacy with him like never before and you will find a freedom like never before. One move in his direction and he will bring a swift end to the tactics of the enemy against you. I feel like the Lord’s message to us in this season is that the enemy has angered him and that God is about to release his wrath against the spiritual forces trying to undo what his people have worked so hard for. Satan will not be allowed to undermine us anymore. He will be on the run and will never regain his footing. The battlefield is now shifting in a new direction and you will see God move upon this earth like never before. The Lord has allowed him to play his games up to this point because there must always be a fullness of time but now that fullness is upon us and we will see a shift into the direction God desires. The enemy will see loss after loss after loss as we take territory and see victory upon victory. Grab hold of what God has for you, focus on him, and watch as the plans of the enemy crumble around you!

Restoration of Hope

hopeI have this crazy idea that people can live life without suffering through depression, anxiety, despair, and discouragement. I have this crazy idea that a little hope can go a long way and since we have the hope of the world inside of us we get to release that hope everywhere we go. So many people are living in hopelessness but it doesn’t have to be that way. We can bring a change that no else can. We owe it to the world to give them an encounter with Jesus and one encounter is all it takes to restore them back to a place that is full of hope. This is a season where most of us go the extra mile to bless those in need and I feel like God is also about to release something new in this season.

I believe that Jesus is coming to restore hope to the nations. People who have lived in despair will fear no more and people who have wondered when will soon see what they have been waiting for. The time of restoration is here. The time of recompense is here. The time of hope is here. It will come in like a flood and wash away all the hopelessness. People will wonder about the fear they used to have and be amazed at how quickly it was washed off of them. The Spirit of God will rinse them clean just like the water from a fire hose will easily rinse away dirt. The enemy has stolen their hope. He comes to kill, steal, and destroy. He has stolen what God has given but it is being taken from him and delivered back as a finely wrapped Christmas present. This is a season many call the season of hope and this year the slogan will manifest into reality.

War

There’s a war raging all around us and every one of us is involved whether we realize it or not. The enemy wants to destroy our way of life and he is targeting everyone and everything in his path. This has gone on for far too long. We have the power to stop him, we need to stand up and fight! Jesus already secured the victory on the cross several thousand years ago so part of our job as Christians is to enforce the reality of that victory upon the enemy. Our covenant with Jesus gives us the authority to disrupt and destroy every one of his actions but so many Christians don’t even realize that they are on a battlefield. We are all part of this fight and we hold the key to victory.

Col. 1:16 tells us that everything was created for Jesus and it specifically lists thrones, powers, rulers, and authorities. Every throne was created for Jesus. Every Throne! So any throne the enemy is occupying is being held illegally and needs to be reclaimed for Jesus. We can take back every inch of territory the enemy has stolen and return it to a place of peace. But we need to be more motivated towards this cause. Jesus didn’t die so that the world could continue to suffer at the hands of satan.

I am determined to see every stronghold of the enemy torn down. I’m tired of seeing people held in captivity to an enemy that has no real power over them. I am determined to see people restored to their rightful place as sons and daughters of God. Every person has a purpose to fulfill on this earth and they need to be set free so they can fulfill what they alone were created to do. I am determined to see people grab hold of that purpose and to fully walk out their God given destiny on the earth. Every person that is freed is one more person capable of expanding the Kingdom of God.

Join the fight and let’s do our best to kick the devil in his pig nosed face every single day! Let’s go get Jesus everything he paid for!
