Life is an endless journey. Lessons change. What you’re dealing with this year, probably had no impact on you last year. I caught myself still feeling troubled by the things I was already redeemed from. Past anxiety came to hunt me. The enemy will make you forget, you already beat him.
It’s important not to forget the challenges you overcame. They will come back, and try to get you to go toe to toe with them again. It’s a waste of time, and the enemy is betting on you wasting your time. He steals it from people; that has been his weapon since the beginning. That’s how he’s able to use you for his plan. Don’t fall into this trap. Learn your lessons, fight for your breakthrough and then move on. Never become stagnant in your relationship with God. God is always showing us ourselves and what we need to work on. He shows it through our circumstance. Whatever is haywire in your life, that’s the area that needs work.
This brings me to my second point: asking God the right questions so, you can get the right answers. He loves to have conversations with you but, when you’re not asking him the right questions it puts a dagger in your relationship. It’s like you have this enormous spirit that created you in your heart. It knows everything about you, but you’re not asking it what it knows, it’s a waste. So ask God real questions. “Am I suppose to be doing this?” “What am I?” “Why was I created, what’s the mission?”. Ask him that, don’t try to figure it out yourself.
Another word that fell on my heart, is peace comes from God. Only he can give you peace. Before we descended to Earth, I like to think we were always in a state of peace. Peace is the enemy, of the enemy. Satan can’t touch you when you’re a peaceful being, it drives him away. The only problem is, peace can’t survive on Earth. It’s like you take a fish from the river and place it in a fishtank. It may live a couple of days but it doesn’t have the organic nutrients to survive in this realm. With everything going on from the Pandemic to a cogolmerate of social issues, peace has no space to live. Things are always coming for our peace. The main way to beat this is to get in your peace bag, and have nothing take you out of it.
It’s time to really live in 2022. God has done his part, it’s up to us to follow through.
