There are so many areas that we have authority over, you have families to take care of and provide for. Friendships to build, grow and maintain. And then there is you. You have dreams and aspirations that you want to achieve yourself. But after a while, the hardships and even day-to-day tasks of life can make you forget. Everything that I just named in some way or another has been given to you by the Lord himself. Are you maintaining/managing what he has given you? If you are still waiting for victory in other areas of your life, how are you preparing for it? If you are married with children how are you waring for them? Does your light shine at home and not just in public? If you are single and looking to be married are you fighting for the right priorities with Christ? If God has promised a house, a business, or whatever he has entrusted in your care how are you preparing for that victory?
It is important that we take the time to put our full armor on as Paul talks about in Ephesians 6:10-18 Satan is thirsty for your demise and he will use whoever and do whatever it takes to make sure you fail and God is made a fool of. So how can you ensure victory? First, believe it! If you are in Christ, he has promised and already won it for you! But we must submit, humble ourselves and allow the lord to train us for success. Stay in your word. Don’t just read it and check it off your to-do list. But study, learn how how to live like Christ, and lastly pray! Ask God for what you need discernment, wisdom, etc. Cover yourself, your family, and the vision/dreams that he entrusted to you!
Trust the Lord’s movement and flow as he flows, and be alert.
