Twenty minutes or twenty years….

“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord of hosts.”  Zechariah 4:6

Has God given you a dream that has yet to come to pass?  If your answer is “yes,” then I am sure you are aware that a God-inspired dream can be fulfilled in just 20 minutes or it can take up to 20 years!  The problem is that during our waiting season, we often get anxious and try to fulfill our God-given dreams without God!  But our self-effort only leads to frustration and failure!

Lets face it, if God gives us a dream; it is ridiculous for us to think that we can do it without His help!  Zechariah 4:6 clearly tells us that it is not by might (wealth, position or prestige) or by power (our own physical strength and intelligence), but it is by the Spirit of God (His supernatural movement) that our God-given dreams will be accomplished here on earth. 

Just take a moment right now and think about the dreams and desires God has placed within your heart.  Go ahead and think about it and I will wait for you right here.  Okay, now let me ask you:  Have you given up on your dreams?  Have you tried to fulfill them on your own?  Are you waiting expectantly for God to bring them to pass?  No matter your response, I want to encourage you today that your God-given dream is worth the wait!  It is time for you to dream again.  It is time for you to wait in anticipation of your dreams because they WILL come to pass in due time.  Whether it is twenty minutes or twenty years for you to see the fulfillment – God is faithful and He will fulfill His promise!

Prayer:
“Lord, I give you the dreams that you have placed within my heart.  I declare that You will bring them to pass in due time.  You are faithful and I trust that I will see the fulfillment of my dreams according to Your Spirit.  No matter how long I must wait I declare that it will be worth it!  Amen.”

My Destiny is Secure

 

“Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.  You guard all that is mine.  The land you have given me is pleasant land.  What a wonderful inheritance!”  Psalm 16:5-6 NLT

I think all of us have heard the phrase, “When someone mimics or copies you, it is the best form of a compliment.”  And although this statement may be true, when someone imitates us in one way or another, we have a choice to make:  Will we become fearful and insecure or will we remain confident that our destiny is secure in Christ and speak blessings over them? 

It is sad to say that many times without even realizing it, we can give into the spirit of fear and begin to speak badly of these individuals.  We can fall prey to gossip, slander and even vengeance, all of which stem from our battle with doubt and fear.  Yet all the while God has promised to guard all that is ours!  Selah (pause and think about this for a moment).

Our destiny is not in the hands of men; the King of Kings is guarding our destiny!  Psalm 16 clearly states, “You (God) guard all that is mine.”  Your life is secure in Christ.  Isn’t that a breathe of fresh air to your weary soul?  We can rest assured that we have a good inheritance and that Jesus is our cup of blessing.

Remain close to God in this season.  Talk to him, spend time in His Word, and choose to bless and not curse.  And let us continue to meditate on this truth:  “My life is secure in Christ and He guards all that is mine.” 

Prayer:“Lord, I am so grateful for the Blood of Jesus and for that fact that I am forgiven, healed and made whole through the power of the Cross.  I declare today that I have a good inheritance.  You guard all that is mine and the land that you have given me is pleasant land.  I choose to give freely to others because You have freely given to me.  You have not given me a spirit of fear, but a spirit of love, power and a sound mind.  Thank you for a wonderful inheritance!  Amen.”
