GOD IS DOING SOMETHING NEW

Apr 14, 2023

Our success in this life is not so much tied to our hard work but to God’s timing.  

Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned and saw under the sun that— The race [is] not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill, But time and chance happen to them all.

Learning and understanding how to lock into this timing requires the wisdom of the Divine (Ecclesiastes 8:1).

There is a wave/wind of change that is blowing in the realm of the spirit ready to carry us to our next levels. All we have to do is to spread our wings like an eagle this season.

Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew [their] strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

An eagle doesn’t flap its wings, it is a bird that God has designed with an internal system that knows how to discern the flow of the wind: it can detect the current that is flowing and while other birds are flapping away and expending energy, it waits for the right current then it soars. No wonder, no other bird flies higher than an eagle.

That is what the wind and the current of the Spirit can do to a man: there is a dimension in your career, business, family, or private life that no amount of experience, reading, or education can take you but learning to flow with the wind of the spirit.

If things are not the way they are meant to be, then shift your faith and expectation and place a restless demand on what God has spoken to you.

Isaiah 66:2 …” But on this [one] will I look: On [him who is] poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My word.

To tremble at God’s word is to obey every instruction: whatever He says, you do. There is too much to be accomplished and nothing in our realm can take us there. It will take the mighty hand of the Master for us to be able to accomplish those dreams that God has made known to us (Isaiah 58:14, Galatians 2:2).

Judges 7:7 Then the LORD said to Gideon, “By the three hundred men who lapped I will save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand. Let all the [other] people go, every man to his place.”

1 Samuel 14:6 Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the LORD will work for us. For nothing restrains the LORD from saving by many or by few.”

This is how God works, it ceases to be about numbers but His presence. That is what made the difference in Joseph’s life, the Lord was with him (Genesis 39:2).

 

The winning formula is always God with you: The moment you detect Him, then you are good to go.

We are spiritual people and our advantage remains in the Spirit. We must continually go deeper and deeper into that dimension and not merely speak. 

We must align our thinking, reasoning, and feeling to the influence of the Spirit and die to the men-pleasing mentality; including self.

Today, cooperate with the Holy Spirit: forget the former things and stretch out your hand. Reach out for the new in faith, confession, prayer, demand, and thinking.

Let everything within you place a demand for the new because it’s there.

If you want to change, it doesn’t just happen; the atmosphere and the Word have been released for April but you must do something that will provoke that change to take place in your life.

Further Study

Philippians 3:13

Luke 5:39 God is doing something new. Don’t be locked up in the old, break out of what you know, be flexible, and pliable and God will take you to that place.

Matthew 14:28 The rest of the eleven disciples were comfortable but Peter dared God for more and he walked on water.

Joshua 3:16 Joshua told the priest who was carrying the Ark of the Covenant to step into the Jordan and the water stopped flowing. You got to do something to dare God to do what you have never seen before.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
