Have you ever felt that you were being picked on? It seemed as if every time you turned around something else was happening. It seemed every time you took one step forward something pulled you back two steps. Have you ever just wanted to give up? Felt like you just couldn’t take any more.  Those are all tricks and schemes of the enemy to keep you from accomplishing the assignment placed on your life.

To whom much is given, much is required. Luke 12:48

You see if the enemy can get your focus off your assignment not only will your blessings be hindered but the blessings of those you are assigned to help will be hindered as well.  This year is going to be that year where you will see miracles upon miracles. This year will be the year everything the enemy stole from you will be replaced with interest. This year will be the year your assignment will become clear and your blessings will manifest in ways God intended for you.

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.  James 1:12

But you have to be in position to receive it!! You have to be ready. You must be willing to go through the process. The problem is many of us don’t trust the process. We feel it don’t take all of that.  We feel it’s too hard.  We feel we don’t deserve to be tested. We feel there must be another way. Sure there may be another way but I guarantee doing it God’s way will provide a better outcome.

There is a way which seems right unto a man, but it ends in death. Proverbs 14:12

You must trust the process.  It was not a coincidence that certain people were removed from your life last year. People who you thought would be there until the end and all of a sudden they were gone. It just didn’t seem fair. You really “needed” them. But were you putting them before God? Where you putting them before your assignment? Would they have hindered your assignment? Would your relationship with God be developing the way it is if they were still in your life?  You see God loves you and will never withhold anything good from you. But he will make sure you are ready for it before He gives it to you. You cannot go about doing things your way and expect the blessings of God to be on your life.  It don’t work like that.

The Lord disciplines those He loves. Proverbs 3:12

So when you find yourself constantly “back-paddling”. When it seems things are not going the way you desire. When the mountain seem more than you can handle, ask yourself “Am I in position?” “Am I doing things my way or God’s way?” “Is this a part of the process or am I off course?” I promise if you get in line with God, not only will you be able to deal with the trials placed before you, you will find a peace that surpasses all understanding.  Blessings will flow and miracles will manifest. Trust the process. God has nothing but good intentions for you and your life.

Until Next Time,
