The Lord showed me, that during the last months so many people have been afflicted by "a dark night of the soul".
A time in which you were forced to reconsider your whole life, your careers, your connections, your relationships, your convictions, your dreams. Some of you even went as far as to ask yourselves :"Is God real?" Your whole paradigm of thinking and doing things has been flipped upside down! You have lost your footing because you have taken your eyes off Jesus and have instead fixed them on the circumstances around you, which made you unsteady! I hear so many people, including Christians, saying that 2020 is a "write off". It's true that so far 2020 has been pretty awful. The Australian bush fires, plane crashes, floods, earthquakes, riots, violent acts of racism, Kobe Bryant's death, so many other terrible things, and of course, the biggest one of all: the COVID-19 Pandemic, which completely disrupted our lives. We can't really argue with the reality of the negativity that 2020 has brought in past 5 months, but I am here to tell you that the The Lord Is saying: "The POSITIVITY of the next 7 months is going to nullify the NEGATIVITY of the first 5!
Be in The Word!! It will renew your mind, refresh your soul and give you the strength you need to face tomorrow! Don't let fear control and drive you!! Remind yourself all that God Has promised you. Don't give up on your dreams! Pick them back up! You are about to give birth to your destiny! Don't give up now! You're closer than ever. Put on your spiritual glasses, look, and look again until you are able to see beyond the fog!
Elijah stood on Mount Carmel and remained in a birthing postion until he saw what he was praying and hoping for manifest! Even if it was as small as a hand! Then, as soon as he saw it, he ran!!! He ran at the first sign of it! And The Lord empowered him with supernatural strength! Elijah didn't wait for it to fully manifest. He declared that what he was going to pray for was already done, he believed, he pursued, he acted and he saw the full manifestation of it!!!
Tuck your cloak in your belt and get ready to outrun the enemy!!!
Hebrews 11:1 NKV
11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Kings 18:41-19:8 (NLT)
Elijah Prays for Rain
41 Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go get something to eat and drink, for I hear a mighty rainstorm coming!”
42 So Ahab went to eat and drink. But Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel and bowed low to the ground and prayed with his face between his knees.
43 Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea.”
The servant went and looked, then returned to Elijah and said, “I didn’t see anything.”
Seven times Elijah told him to go and look. 44 Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.”
Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’”
45 And soon the sky was black with clouds. A heavy wind brought a terrific rainstorm, and Ahab left quickly for Jezreel. 46 Then the Lord gave special strength to Elijah. He tucked his cloak into his belt and ran ahead of Ahab’s chariot all the way to the entrance of Jezreel.
