What is Best?

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. All hope is found in Me. Put your faith in Me and watch what I will do. It may not happen when or how you think it should, and in fact, it probably will not. My ways are not your ways, and I always know what is best.

You bring joy to Me as you stand up for Me and seek to advance My Kingdom. There is so much I have for you to do. Come near to Me, and I will reveal the next step for you to take to walk into your destiny. 

Do not worry. You will not have to do it on your own, and you cannot. I am with you. Holy Spirit will guide you, and give you the strength, power, and life to carry out all I have for you. 

You have a very special purpose. Come close to Me, and I will help you walk into it. I want the very best for you, and I will make it happen as you walk with Me day by day. I love you My child!!!

Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Isaiah 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways,And My thoughts than your thoughts. 

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

Destiny Destroyer (Unforgiveness)

Weight of Unforgiveness

At the beginning of this week, I had an overwhelming urge to do something!!!  I want to start a church, Bible Study, preach more, pray for people more, minister more!!!  I feel like I have so much that I can do to build the Kingdom of God, but still no direction where to apply it.  This is frustrating, but I know that God is using us, and working in us to prepare us for the next step.  This does not make the waiting time any easier though.  Here is the third part in a devotional series that God has been speaking to me to help me and my family walk more into the destiny that He has for us.

Now, since we know that we are Designed for Destiny and as we are removing every obstacle and making sure that we are receiving the Best Possible Signal, we must be very careful not to let anything destroy the destiny that God has for our lives.  There are a broad range of things that can be destroyers, Anger, fear, insecurity… but one of the most common destroyers of destiny is unforgiveness.

Imagine you order a meal from McDonalds. You scarf down the burger and are eating the fries when you discover a used band-aid nestled at the bottom of the box. Would you be able to finish the rest of the fries? Would you even want to?

Something bad no matter how small can ruin the rest of a good thing!!!

You should know, God wants you to walk in dynamic destiny right now. You must position yourself to receive and remove all obstacles. One of the most dangerous destroyers of destiny is unforgiveness. The devil will use this to steal from you. If he can cause you to take up an offense, your destiny begins to wither and die until you are able to forgive.

Read Matthew 18:21-35

Here, Jesus tells a parable explaining forgiveness. One servant was forgiven an immense sum that he would never be able to pay back, but that servant would not forgive his friend a few bucks. Because of his lack of mercy, the unforgiving servant was punished.

Forgive

You are called to be a representative of Christ. When you come to Him, He forgives you such an enormous debt that you could never repay Him. He gave His life up completely for you. Because of this mercy that was freely given to you, you do not have a right to be unmerciful. No, what they did is not right, and yes it hurt you deeply. But God granted you mercy and freedom from death, and you also must grant mercy and let God deal with it. In releasing that offense, God is able to release you into fully walking in your destiny because you are a better representative of Him. Get rid of the band-aid and enjoy the fries!!!

Challenge: Ask Holy Spirit to reveal everyone that you need to forgive. Write their names down on a sheet of paper. Release each name to God and ask Him to help you forgive them completely. Rip your list up and throw it away as a physical act of canceling their debt.
