This is a season of speedy acceleration and breaking out of the old into the new.  This season the old and the new cannot blend, the familiar and unfamiliar has to be separated.  The Lord God is taking you on a new path of revealing what He desires to accomplish in your life.

I will lead blind Israel down a new path, guiding them along an unfamiliar way.  Isaiah 42:16

He says ” I have chosen you as My beloved to fulfill my purpose here on earth, over the nations it is time to rise up from your slumber, awake oh Daughter of Zion, come and meet Me in the secret place.  Let Me reveal My heart to you, let Me reveal My will to you.  I have been waiting for this moment to sit with you and dine with you, come My beloved because I first loved you.”

God’s plans for you are beyond your expectations and imaginations, His desire is for you to see all that He has in store for you.  His promises over your life are yes and amen, it is sealed.  The Lord God is revealing new strategies, new ways to accomplish the best results by His divine enablement invested in you for Christ rules in you the hope of glory.

Get ready because it is happening now not tomorrow but now.

There is so much to think and worry about that leads to excessive processing of information for the best quickest solution.  You think about how you are going to pay your bills, monthly mortgage payments, put food on the table, pay  the children school fees or even yours.  As the day passes by pay the worries escalates,your mind continues to process, analyse till it reaches a point of total confusion and mental depression.  The mind is the battlefield to overcoming every trials and tribulation that the enemy throws at you.

My thoughts during my youth were thoughts of rejection, unforgiveness, bitterness, sadness, hopelessness, helplessness, pains, hurts and so on that lead to depression.  I allowed my past to control my future and would not let go of the past.  I did not have a strong relationship with the Lord and did not know where to start.  My mind was full of confusion, frustration and was close to mental breakdown.

Until I encountered Him in whole new dimension that changed my life for the best.  I began to hunger and thirst for the spiritual food and cleansed my mind through the precious blood of Jesus from every toxic thoughts that oppressed and depressed me.

My thoughts pattern changed from negative to positive, despair to hope, sadness to joy, confusion to sound mind, fear to faith and pains to perfect healing in Christ Jesus.  For as he thinks in his heart, so is he Proverbs 23:7a.  What are you thinking of that God can’t handle?  It all starts with the mind, the mind is the battlefield.

It is time to take control of your mindset not giving the devil an inch of space any more.  Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2   It is a process that requires change, change in the way you think, act and react.  This is a spiritual warfare not of the flesh therefore do not set your mind on the physical but the spiritual, meditating on the Word day and night , eat, drink and sleep the Word until it becomes a part of you (Romans 8, Joshua 1:8, 2 Corinthians 5:7).

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 10:3-6

The Word of God is a powerful weapon used to destroy every stronghold, cast down every thoughts that are not in alignment with what the Word says over your life or any circumstance that you facing, bringing them down under submission to the obedience of Christ.  It is time to confess His Word over your life, marriage, that situation that never seems to go away. When you confess with your mouth believe with your heart and so shall it be according to His promises (Romans 10:10, Job 22:28)

Would you start now to make a change?  Change your thought patterns, let the Holy Spirit lead you, fill your heart till it overflows and gradually you shall see your life transformed for the best.  Don’t you give up, do not let circumstances or the challenging storms of life frustrate you to the point of hopelessness and helplessness.  It all starts with the mind, the mind is the battlefield.  Take that big step of faith and trust God to see you through it all.

When the enemy fills your mind with words of destruction, confusion, intimidation, degradation, humiliation and likes. You need to take authority over your mind, cleansing  your mind in the precious blood of Jesus.  For the battlefield is in the mind, whatever thoughts or words that is not in alignment with His Word has to be rendered permanently void in the mighty name of Jesus.  Begin to boldly confess Christ Identity in you.

It could be that friends, families or loved ones have spoken negatively over your life.  Consequently this has caused you to loose your voice to speak up or stand up for your right and frustrate, depress, oppress  and terminate every plans and seed sown in your life.  You need to know and understand what the Word says about you.  When you discover Christ Identity and have a divine knowledge of Him, it gives you the ability to confess Christ identity in you, walk boldly and confidently in His image.  Everyday when  I look into the mirror I confess His identity in me.  I speak of His love, faith, power, authority and the fullness of Him.

The power of life and death is in the tongue, the power to build and uproot, establish and destroy.  It is time to confess Christ Identity in you, speak up, speak out and stand out that those around you would know who you are in Christ

So how you use the words that proceeds from your mouth is essential.  Do not let your emotions take control of your thoughts but permit the Holy Spirit full access to your heart.  Meditate on His Word, day and night and let His Word be solidly rooted in your heart.  When His Word becomes a part of you, you begin to declare what the Word of God states over every situation, command your morning and activate the solution  rather than confessing the problem.

Having a divine knowledge of who you in Christ is the key to unleashing your breakthrough.  When you confess Christ Identity in you, the atmosphere in the spirit realm changes to fall into alignment with His will then at the set appointed time it manifests in your life as it has already been established in heaven.  So why don’t you confess Christ identity in you and receive your breakthrough

 

CONFESSION

I publicly announce that Christ lives in me, the hope of glory.  His power is at work within me therefore I have the power and authority to decree a thing and it shall be established.  I boldly confess that I know who I am in Him, I am ROYALTY, QUEEN, His precious daughter whom He finds delight in. I am above and not beneath.  I am fruitful and prosperous.  I am called.  I am chosen and set apart for His works according to His will, plans and purpose.  I command mountains to be moved and they obey me.  I am not afraid of what the enemy throws at me because I have triumphant victory in Christ Jesus.  I am standing and will keep standing through it all.  I know my wait is not in vain and I work according to His set appointed times and seasons.  My faith in God over weighs every fear because of His abundant overflowing love. I choose not to be defeated, I have triumphant victory in Christ Jesus.  I am an overcomer  and have overcome every trial and tribulation.  For every test I boldly confess that I have a testimony for His name to be glorified.  I confidently claim soundness of mind and His perfect love in Christ Jesus.  I am encouraged, bold and fierce as a lion to keep pressing on in pursuit of God.

In His presence is fullness of joy, peace and soundness of mind.   You find rest and restoration in  His presence.  We speak so much about entering into His presence but a lot of us have not experienced Him in a new dimension or found that place of rest, settlement and dwelling place yet.  There is so much satisfaction and abundance of all that He has in store for you in His presence.  So how do you enter into His presence?

Before we come into His presence, if you hold any grudges against anyone, go and seek forgiveness from the person before you enter into His presence.  When someone offends you, hold no grudges, bitterness or anger against the person but understand they they have their flaws.  Forgive them so that you are not hindered from gaining divine access into His presence.  “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you Matthew 6:14.   Nail every sinful nature on the cross as you surrender completely to God, permitting Christ to take absolute control (Galatians 5: 19-24, Colossians 2:13-15).

 

HOW TO ENTER IN HIS PRESENCE

Praise and Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving and praise is one of the keys to unlocking the doorway to the heavenly realm that permits you grand entrance as His Prince, Princess, Royal Priesthood and Son or Daughter who has an inheritance in His Kingdom.  Let your mouth be filled with thanksgiving and praise as the Lord derives so much joy in your rejoicing for who He is, all He has done yesterday, today and forever more. Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.  2 Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.  4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name Psalm 100:1,2,4 .

Worship

Worship is an act of submission and surrendering your all to the Lord God.  Worship is an act of sacrifice that ushers us into His presence.   Let us go into His tabernacle; let us worship at His footstool Psalm 132:7.  When you come before His presence you stand in awe of Him, in humble adoration, forgetting all your problems and secret petitions, you know with a firm assurance that Heavenly Father has heard your cry.

Blood of Jesus

Jesus  came down on earth in human form on our behalf to sacrifice His life for us.  Through the power of His resurrection  on the cross where Jesus was pierced and bruised for our transgression and iniquities has granted us divine direct access to His throne (Isaiah 53:3-10, Colossians 1:19-20, 1 John 1:7).    The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness.  It is through the blood that you enter into the holy of holies.  Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption Hebrews 9:12.  

Spirit

The Holy Spirit, our standby, counselor, strengthener, helper and comforter connects with your spirit in unity guiding you into His presence.   For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father Ephesians 2:18.  There is no condemnation for those who in Christ Jesus, His spirit is life that guarantees you unlimited divine access into His presence (2 Corinthians 2:10-12).     It is the spirit that reveals the heart of  the Father, His plans and purpose over your lives to you.

Word

The Word is Jesus that brings life to every dead situation (John 1:1-4).   His Word is alive, powerful and a double  sword that pierces the spirit and soul, discerns right and wrong and the intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).  As you meditate on the Word, Christ in you the hope of glory is reignited and refined like fire burning in your heart that draws you more intimately with the Lord (  Psalm 39:3, Colossians 1:27, Joshua 1:6-10).

 

There is much to write about but the Lord searches and knows the heart.  As you enter into His presence, position yourselves in the right place of righteousness with the right heart and you shall reap love, peace, joy and overflowing blessings

While at work listening to music, the song that drew my attention was Through it all by Andrae Crouch .  I took time out to reflect on the words of the song.  Asking myself questions of if I have been able to trust Jesus through all the trials and tribulations, ups and downs of life, when all around you are not working according to your intentional plans.  Could I really say through it all I have learnt to trust Him all the way?

Trusting God  during challenging times can be so difficult and frustrating because your mind cant seem to comprehend why you dont have a job yet when you are highly experienced in your field of  job application.  Or why your marriage is breaking down and the Lord says trust Me I can and will work it out.  Could it be that you have found yourself in a difficult dilemma that you cant seem to get out off.

With your mind you know what the Word of God states and with your heart you believe.   In my opinion trust has so much to do with the heart than the mind.  Because sometimes you might have a deeper understanding of the Word but do you believe without a doubt, beyond reasonable doubt that He is able and willing to see you through it all.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him,  and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

God allows you to pass through lonely hours of trials and tribulations so you can learn to trust Jesus Christ all the way through till you receive your breakthrough and triumphant victory in Him.

It is time to thank God for those mountains and valleys that you have been passing through in the past and present.   Appreciate Him for walking with you through those mountains and teaching you to trust in Jesus.  As He teaches you through the power of the Holy Spirit, you learn to depend completely on His Word.

He never fails, He will never fail you so through it all can you learn to trust and believe in God ?  His Word remains the same yersterday, today and forever.   When He speaks it comes to pass.  Will you be patient through it all to see the end of the matter, for the end is better than the beginning.
