So we have been covering our spoken words in the previous posts. Spoken words of curses and death have to be broken over our lives. I wanted to move on to another subject “But God” wants to stay here and discuss this issue in more depth. Understanding this tells me that God needs us to have a deeper understanding of this matter. He is asking me to go into detail about a personal experience I have had with this very subject. I guess He needs us all to realize how His principal works in a “normal & everyday” person’s life.
Our words have the power to bring God’s supernatural blessings into existence. It is imperative that we start to do this immediately. If you have been reading these posts, I know you probably have questions. How do I know what my divine destiny is? How do I know what God created to me accomplish for Him? There is one answer. We need to pray and seek the answer from the creator.
We start to think in our minds that it must be hard to understand what God wants from us but it isn’t. We like to overthink things and then complicate them too. God isn’t complicated. I think we like to believe He is way too complicated so we can keep Him at bay. Even if you don’t know what God created you to accomplish for Him before you start praying for it to come into existence, what harm can that do? You have to know in your heart that what He has in store for you is something more incredible than you could ever accomplish without Him.
Start to pray and ask Him to reveal your divine purpose. You have to understand that asking one time more than likely isn’t going to get you an answer. In our society, we want things to happen immediately. On most occasions, God doesn’t work like that. God wants us to pursue and chased after Him. God needs to know that we desire Him so much which doesn’t refer to a worldly desire but a passion and hunger for Him and all the things of Him. Before He starts to reveal Himself to us, we have to show Him that we want Him in our lives. How do we do that? By praying and asking Him for these things specifically.
I can give you a prime example. Back when I was younger, I was attempting to attain a college degree. One of my required classes to achieve that degree was a class in writing. I discovered that I was pretty good at it. Writing came very easy for me. I found that I had a pretty incredible imagination. Now mind you back at this time, I was a baby Christian. I had no knowledge of God given destinies etc. I just simply thought that it was pretty cool that writing came very easy for me. I ended up receiving an A as a grade in that class. Well, time went on, and life happened, and I forgot about that cool writing class where I had a received an unknowing glimpse of what God had in store for me.
Some years later, I found myself moving closer and closer to God. At this point of my Christian life, I was so hungry for God and of all things about Him that He started to reveal Himself to me. What He showed me was so incredible that I wanted more and more. I was so passionate about everything of God. It was during this time that God started to show me visions and give me dreams. I don’t want to disclose everything that He showed me but I all I can say was some of the visions were so incredible that I wondered if all of these things were a figment of my wonderful imagination. I only have one thing to say to that thought. The devil is a liar!
God’s visions have to be something so large that they are unattainable by us. If those visions were something simple, it wouldn’t force us out of our comfort zone. If those visions were simple, I could accomplish it without God’s help. I prayed, and prayed, and prayed, and prayed about it. Asking God for direction. I also asked God if He was the one who gave me those visions. Deep down in my heart, I knew that it was Him. I guess I was trying to look for excuses to not pursue that destiny because it was so daunting.
Then guess what happened? God answered my prayers. LOL. Imagine that. How silly of me to think that He wouldn’t. I prayed so much about it that God confirmed my visions through a man of God who was prophetic. This man spoke out and told me word for word what God had shown me in my visions. I knew it was God at this point. This vision that the man of God confirmed had been hidden away in my heart.
When God gave me this vision, I had not told a soul. No one on this earth knew what God had shown me. When God gave the vision, I kept it to myself. I didn’t tell anyone. I was too unsure. I could barely believe it myself. How did I expect others to believe what God had shown me if I couldn’t even believe it? Once I received this prophetic word, I knew without a doubt that it was God who had revealed it to me. Now, no one can tell me otherwise. I know in my heart of hearts that God showed me so long ago what He created me to be.
So what did I do to get from that point of realizing I had a gift to write to this stage where I am writing this so you can move closer to God too? I prayed a lot, and I spoke that vision into existence. I held onto it when all my circumstances said something entirely different. I fasted, and I planted seed directly for my divine destiny to come to fruition.
So, what were the words I spoke into existence? The words I spoke out exactly reflected what God had shown me in one of my visions. I gave words for worship and thanks to God. I uttered out loud words like “thank you God that I am a world renown known author. “Thank you, God, that I have a creative mind exactly like your creative mind.” “Thank you, God, that I am more that a conquer.” “Thank you, God, that I am a world renown known children’s book writer.” “Thank you, God, that I am a world renown known author of fiction and nonfiction books.” “Thank you, God, that I am the head and not the tail.” “Thank you God that I am first and not last.” “Thank you, God that I can do ALL things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.” “Thank you God that I am what you said I am, and I can do everything you created me to do.” On and on it went.
Did I feel silly doing this? Of course, I did! I felt kind of coo-coo at times. Sometimes I felt like I was wasting my time. Does it sound vain? Maybe to some people it might, but I was only saying the things that God had already shown me and confirmed to me through the prophetic man of God. Now some of you might be saying that I am full of myself for saying and maybe even for believing these things about myself. I do not see it that way. Again, these are things that God has revealed to me. At this point, I do not care who believes me or not. I am only trying to make sure I accomplish everything God created me to be.
Have I taken flack for speaking God’s visions aloud? Of course, I have. Some people think I am really off my rocker. Some people don’t want to have anything to do me with me because I am a sold out Jesus freak. Even some family members have stopped speaking to me because I go all in for God. Let them think what they want. I am focused on pleasing God. I want everything He has for me. My desire for Him and everything about Him is so intense that I cannot find words to describe it. I am not interested in being a people pleaser.
God’s timing is always impeccable! LOL. As I am sitting here typing these words into this post, this Tweet comes across the Twittersphere:
This message was just Tweeted out by Paula White-Cain. A powerful, prophetess and woman of God that my family has been aligned with for years https://t.co/PAIlGb59ub. Again, God’s confirmation, on so many levels. Thank you, God, for your timing. It’s always perfect. Thank you, Father, for always showing me that you order my footsteps.
Please don’t misunderstand. When I was uttering those words into existence, I felt out of sorts. These actions weren’t what I was used to. These actions were abnormal for me. This action is out of the ordinary for most of us. Most of us do not understand how to do things the way God wants us to. We speak words of negativity and complaints into existence without thinking twice about doing so. We go about spewing out words that destroy our future and of those we love. We utter out death and curses without having any second thought of the consequences of our words. Negative consequences happen because for the most part we aren’t taught to do things God’s way. We have to retrain our hearts, our mouth, and our minds.
Please also understand that when I was walking around uttering these words into existence, that I wasn’t doing so with happiness and glee. I wasn’t walking around shouting these words from the top of my lungs. I was doing it in a whispering, quiet and hush-hush sort of way but that is all it takes. My words need to be heard by God, myself and by the enemy. Whispering them is just as effective as shouting them. Make no mistake, though; now these words are uttered out with confidence, knowledge, and happiness.
In closing, we have to remember several things:
- We need to find out what our divine calling is. What did God create you specifically to accomplish for Him?
- We need to retrain our hearts and mouths to speak blessings and life. We have to retrain our minds to do things God’s way.
- We need to chase after God and after all the things of God. We need to have a passion for Him that will never extinguish.
- We have to desire Him and everything about Him above EVERYTHING else in our lives!
- We need to pray without ceasing. Don’t think that prayer doesn’t work. It does! Our prayer moves God to intervene in our situations and our lives.
- Once you believe you have received your answer about your diving calling, pray and ask God to please confirm it. Trust me He will confirm it.
- Find a Spirit-filled church. The glorious Holy Spirit will fill you and move you closer to God. Pray about the direction to the right church too. PRAYER CHANGES EVERYTHING.
Can we pray together? Dear Heavenly, Father, use me for your Glory. Show me, father, who and what you created me to be. Father, show me how you see me. God, once you show me how you see me, please don’t ever let me forget it. Please let that vision forever fuel me to accomplish everything I need to do for you. Father, what you have in store for me, no man or devil can stop me from reaching that dream. God, let every obstacle become a stepping stone. Let every setback become a set up for a breakthrough. Father, keep me humble. Remind me that without you I could not reach these tremendous goals on my own. Father, assist me in giving you all the glory because I can do all things through Christ Jesus. Right now we speak to the spirit of fear, intimidation, and doubt. You are not from or of God. God does not operate in fear, intimidation, and doubt. Fear, intimidation, and doubt we bind you in the name of Jesus. In their place, we lose confidence, knowledge, understanding, wisdom and boldness. God, your word says in Matthew 16:19 – 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth [a]will have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth [b]will have been loosed in heaven.” Thank you, Father, for everything you do for us and loving us more than we can comprehend. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
Perhaps you were once close to God but have moved away from Him for whatever reason; then this prayer is for you. Can we pray together? “Dear Father, please forgive me for my sins. God, please cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus. I know Christ died on the cross for me. I know He was crucified, buried and then arose on the third day. I know He ascended and now sits on the right hand of God. I receive Jesus as my Lord and personal Savior. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
God bless you all.
