Yesterday I had three pictures;
One, people came bringing bad news.
The second, others had been offended and shut me out.
And the third, I was on a airport runway and another plane tried to take me off the runway before I could lift off and go where I was going, but I was able to get away from it.
As I prayed about these pictures the Lord had given me I believed he said to me;
“Be careful who you listen to and go with. Things are going to try and bring discouragement and shut you out and they will try to take you off track but keep focused. Build my church”.
So discouragement and obstacles are trying to get in the way of the purposes of God being fulfilled in my life and those around me and hence why I share what the Lord showed me because I believe for many in this season of change right now, hold onto what you believe God has said over you and don’t allow the enemy to abort the promises in your life.
Something over the last several weeks that keeps coming back to me is;
“But Jesus said to him, “No one having put his head to the plow and looking back is fit for the Kingdom of God.”
For me this scripture keeps talking about not giving up on those things that the Lord has given us to put our hand to, not to get distracted because of discouragements and obstacles but to push through and push every hinderance aside and keep on task and believe that what God has spoken, He will enable you to keep going in it, despite what may look like you not getting very far.
May the Lord lead and guide you in the ways you are to go, keep your eyes on him and trust in Him and he will lift you up.
