You can’t quit!

IMG_20170403_195044_801

 

*My IG Post @authorjordan1: God can give you messages through movies. Sometimes God will take you through the process that seems to be slower and tiring because it feels like that’s not the way to generate “fast” results. If you stick with the way he wants you to go and faint not, then the reward will be greater. It will be worth it!*

If you are going to be great, then there are certain tests that you must endure and pass. There is a certain amount of trials, tribulations and pain that you must push through. Do not become distracted and side track on whats happening for other people. You cannot compare yourself to everyone else, because not everyone else is going where you are going. There will be some people who you will have to leave behind. There are some old ways and thinking that you must destroy in order to get to the next level. Whatever you are enduring, it is all for a purpose. God has not forgotten about you. You don’t have to see or feel God in order to know that he is there. (Especially when things appear to not go your way). He’s teaching you how to be stronger and wiser.

He’s teaching you how to overcome your failures, struggles, disappointments and rejections until you won’t even flinch in the face of opposition. Waiting will build development, growth and improvement. Greatness cannot be rushed. You will reach a stage in life where the amount of suffering will not have any affect or impact on you continuing your walk. Sometimes the strongest thing that you can do is to keep walking in the midst of failure. Jog or crawl if you have to, but don’t give up. You cannot win if you give up. This fight and walk is not for everyone. See it not strange if you are on a narrow path. The Lord has chosen you to be different. It’s not easy and it’s challenging, but at the end it will be all worth it.

1 Peter 4:12-13

12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

Stay True to Who you Are

orion-nebula-1056233

Hold on to your faith and patience. It will pay off in full measure. Time always helps us to grow and prepares us for what’s coming. Anything worth having will not come easy. Your sacrifices will make you appreciate and value the blessings that’s coming. There are so many people in this world who have everything yet, they have no joy, peace and happiness. Some are just going through the motions of life. They look alive on the outside but they are dead on inside. Keep walking through the process that God has for you. Don’t force your come up. There is so much greatness in you. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel bad just because they are in their season of opportunity.

There are some people with egos and low-key narcissist (with many insecurities) that will disguise themselves as if they are “humble” but will sow negative seeds of energy and words to discourage you. No one can curse what God has decided to bless. No one can kill what God wants alive.  They may be walking in their season of opportunity and reaping their harvest, but it may not be on the level on where God wants to take you. He that hath an ear, let him hear.

God uses everything for a purpose. Even when you run into negative energy and people, he will still use that to encourage you to do more. He will still use that for your good. Your steps are ordered. Your foundation will be strong and solid. There are some things that you must experience and go through before you receive what God has in store. Stay true to you. Through all the struggles, pressures, failures, tears and pain you must press through. What God has for you is for you. Don’t allow another person or situation to distract you from the greatness that God has poured in you. Greatness causes intimidation. Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.

Building From the Ground Up

ground-1507817

Sometimes it’s important to start fresh. Building from the ground up is not easy. It’s much more difficult than starting with a template or blueprint. There are going to be a countless amount of trial and errors along the way. Building from the ground up also requires more faith and patience. (Since most of the time it won’t be overnight). Once the final product is finished and established, it will be worth all the hard work, effort, risk and commitment you invested. Your hard work and seeds of faith will pay off.

Don’t get discouraged because it didn’t happen in your timing. God always does things in decency and order. He does everything in perfection. There is no need to rush your come up. Your too special to be rushed! Remember he is always on time. When your building from the ground up, don’t be surprise when there are some people who won’t support or help you. This is to only test the motives and the intentions of those who are around you. He is sparing you from the leeches.

What better way to expose someone’s motives when you are in the beginning stages of pursing your dreams, passion, goals or vision? (This can refer to careers, businesses, relationships and education etc.). Everybody is with you during the stages of success, but can they hang during the times when there is no harvest? Be thankful and grateful unto God that he is showing you and revealing who is truly for you. This also makes you aware of the real reasons why you are doing what you love. If there were no financial gain nor reward for it, would you still be able to carry out with his assignment and will for your life?

Yes, there will be days of frustration. Yes, there will be days in where you will wake up and ask yourself is it worth it? Yes, there will be days in where quitting looks good but I’m here to tell you, DON’T GIVE UP! You can’t and you have no option. That shall not be spoken of nor thought of. You shall fill your mind with his words of truth and peace. The devil cannot win. Don’t allow even the smallest doubt in your mind. Remember that he will not put more on you than you can bear. You can handle the pressure and challenge.

The blessings that comes from building from the ground up without any help, is that you do not owe anyone anything. All credit goes to God. It also removes all the people who only want to connect with you because of what you have or what you are affiliated with. It teaches you how to fully trust and rely on God.

Whatever it is that you may be building from the ground up, always know that God is with you every step of the way. It may not be easy and it will be painful at times, but he will be by your side. Again, do not be discouraged. It shall come to pass, it shall come to pass!! Amen.

Here are the words of the LORD. This is just a brief message. Hope all can be encouraged!

Behold, I have come to make all things new again. Every pain, hurt and tear shall be washed away. I will heal your scars and I will heal away your wounds. I will remove all of the scars from your childhood/past. I will shut the mouth of the nay sayer saith the LORD. They shall eat their words. There will be a newness and a freshness in you that I will restore. I take and I give. I uplift; I destroy. I am the LORD and I am your GOD. Listen to the words that I will put into your heart my child. I will never leave you, give up on you; NOR FORSAKE YOU. Do not give up on me my child.The best is still yet to come! Your faith and your confidence shall be restored and renewed. In Jesus mighty name, amen! ♥

It is written in Revelation 21:4: And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away”.

Expand Your Vision

 

china-1576318

Speak life into your vision. Speak those things as though they were. Keep saying it until you see it. God will sometimes test you to see if you still hang on to his word and promise when things are going in an opposite direction. It’s all test of your faith. The harder the test the bigger the reward. Extraordinary people go through extraordinary things. Expand your vision according to where you’re going and not by where you are. Where you are currently in life is just a prerequisite to get to where you’re going. The LORD is looking for unmovable faith. He is pleased by faith. There is something that is connected to your purpose in your everyday routine. (Even if you don’t have one or if nothing is happening). Trust God by showing him your patience and faith. He will rekindle your strength.

Water your vision with positive and supportive people. Don’t allow anyone or anything to hinder your growth that is not of the will of God. You will be able to travel new heights and new levels that most people have not seen before. There is something that he wants to reveal to you on a higher level but you must trust him. Expand your vision when you are walking on blind faith. Don’t allow your vision to be blurry but increased with clarity and sharpness. Take little leaps of faith that will make you closer to your goals. Allow your vision to expand to new heights and measures.

It is written in Habakkuk 2:2 – “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make [it] plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it”. It is also written in Proverbs 29:18 – “Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he”.

Be Not Entangled

entanglement-1402305

It is written in Galatians 5:1: “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage”. The word entangled means to be caught up or twisted in circumstances that are difficult to escape. When a spider trap it’s prey, it is entangled in a web waiting to be devoured. We must not be deceived or controlled by anything or anyone.

Whatever control us is what owns us. We can be entangled in something and not know it or be in denial. The Lord will always provide a way of escape out of your bondage. Do not follow the lust of the flesh. This can apply to any unclean area of our lives.

Galatians 5:16: says “This I say then, walk in the spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh”. Becoming untangled takes work and just like with anything it’s a process. Whatever you don’t rid of will get rid of you. Whatever you don’t deal with now will always come back later. The Lord will provide a way out. Sometimes you must go through what you have to. The process will be messy, but it will be all for his glory.

He will always give you ashes for beauty. Do not be entangled. His power is much greater than your circumstance and weaknesses. He has the power to make you free from anything that is holding you back. Cling on to his word. Sometimes we can hold our own selves internally back due to our past or present experiences.

It is written in Matthew 11:28: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. Let go of all your heavy burdens and cast all cares upon him. Allow him to remove any chains and strongholds that may have you entangled. He’s waiting 🙂

Always Be Confident :)

 

blue-mountains-sunset-1336208

Confidence comes from within. You can have all the outer and exterior things you desire and it will still not create true happiness. Confidence, joy and happiness is a choice. You must trust God that he did not make a mistake when he made you in his image. No one can take away your confidence unless you allow them. It’s important to love yourself. You cannot expect someone else to give you what you don’t have for yourself. No need to seek validation and approval from others or in substitutes. Always know that you are not what others say about you. The LORD shall shut the mouth of every naysayer that came against you. The LORD will always use every negative situation for your good to preserve you. Be strong and courageous in who he made you to be. Continued to be encouraged! Remain whole and not into pieces. It is written in Hebrews 10:35:Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward”. Allow your confidence to come from GOD and none other. Allow him to steer the ship against the waves of insecurity of any form. Be Confident. Do not allow the Devil to win ♥
