The change in your life begins with you. Take an inventory. Release what no longer serves your God given vision. Add what will enhance and grow your life in a positive direction. You only pass this way but once. Be quite selective about whom you invite to make this journey with you. Not everyone can go forward with you to where God is taking you now.
Let the old fall away as He directs. Some are in your life simply for a season. Do not hold tight to what or whom He may be releasing from your journey. Move forward. We are in treacherous yet exciting times. If you choose to stay where you have been you will miss the new season and new facet of the journey He has for you.
You are truly here “for such a time as this!” It is your choice to step up in this season or remain where you currently exist. For all intercessors, this is our season! We must now put away all the foolishness and petty issues and step up to the fullness of the call on each of our lives.
Surround yourself with solid believers. Walk away from carnal Christians…and there are many. Ask God to clearly direct your steps. This is about discernment not judgment. For the ground we now step onto is like no other before. Strategic focus is required. Choose wisely.
Remember, Jesus healed the paralytic because of the faith of his friends. Choose friends of uncompromising faith for that is what we must have in this season. We walk together in this and must encourage and strengthen one another with words of faith.
If those around you speak death, gossip or judgment, walk away. That is not from the Lord and will have a detrimental impact on your heart (and it is always a heart issue). It will get in your spirit and it will impede your journey. Clean house. Start today for the time is ever so short. The mission is clear: That none should perish!
“And they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. Seeing THEIR (emphasis added) faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, “Take courage, son; your sins are forgiven.”
“And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. There will be so much more evil in the world that the love of most believers will grow cold.”
“The righteous should choose his friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray.”
