Everyone that has been called to be great or to do the extraordinary MUST suffer extreme persecution! It is typical for this person's family, friends, inner circle, and those he trusts the most to hurt him the most.
Amazingly, at the end of this process, it is almost impossible for this person that's called to greatness to hate these people (if he understands the purpose behind his ordain process). The reason for this is simple, and that is his challenges would have taught him that these people were not only necessary for his development. But they were also the tools God decided to use to chisel him into the extraordinary great person he has or will become...............
Great people are rarely produced through great times... In fact, it is during the bad times when their backs are against the wall, they wisely decide that there is no other option than to become GREAT! Make no mistake God is the one supervising all of this. Only to reveal the world and your enemies that they unknowingly played a crucial part in provoking the greatness that was always resident within you. However, it required you being challenged to be ignited.
For those of us that have labeled ourselves as a failure or others have convinced you that you are a failure and counted you out. Make no mistake they are about to see the most significant revolution and transformation of the human spirit ever.
YOU ARE BY FAR GREATER THAN YOUR ENVIRONMENT HAS CONVINCED YOU TO BELIEVE!
Greatness is presently residing in you; however, it’s asleep and needs the agitation of your haters and detractors to give it life. Provocation would usually be the instrument by which revelation and creation are released from the human spirit, that the human mind initially assumed it had nothing left to fight with. Nevertheless, applied pressure and discomfort projected at the one who is called to greatness. Becomes motivated to reach deep within and tap into a source that was always there but needed the right pressure to release it.
For those of you that are reading this right now, your present dislike position is agitating you to release the greatness that presently resides within you. The Bible says it this way, "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us. Even though we are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down but not destroyed. Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body, 2Corianthians 4:7-10.
It is my prayer on this beautiful morning that the Lord will open your spiritual eyes, and reveal to you your difficulties working for you and not against you. Eventually comprehend why it is necessary to love your enemies and accept the scriptural command that we must give thanks in all things, 1 Thess. 5:18. The reality is, with the assistance of patience, we're being chiseled into the greatness we are called to be.
“ALL THINGS ARE WORKING TOGETHER IN CONCERT FOR OUR GOOD”

Just about every trouble or challenge that we face, which seems to have no solution, would always appear to be more than we can bear, particularly in the case of the lost of a love one.
Now, when reading the above topic, which is quoted by many so frequently, I have to wonder if those quoting it ever made the effort to consider who is it that they are holding responsible for giving them these load to bear. I have to assume that they have privately acknowledged that God is indeed in control and that he is sovereign in all matters be it good or bad and ultimately he’s managing what’s happening to them at that time, again be it good or bad.
Yet, we must still seek understand as to where this load is being placed by God on the human being, so that we can, understand how better to bear it. Now the truth is whatever load we are carrying, definitely we’re not carrying it physically. For example, the unexpected death of a love one; I am sure you are not physically carrying that deceased love one across your shoulders everyday, right? Therefore the load must be of a spiritual nature that has you in the depressed grieving state that seems impossible to shake off.
Now that we understand that our loads are carried by our spirits and not our physical being, even though our physical beings can show evidence of the carrying of that spiritual load. Let us see how God requires us to deal with it.
Whenever God addresses man it is always initiated by things that are spiritual, why you asked? Well let’s look back at creation as it relates to man’s make up. According to Genesis 2:7 it was only when God who is a spirit (John 4:24) breathed into the nostrils of this physical man that he made from the dust of the earth (which became man’s flesh) that he became a living soul. The word soul in this text comes from the Hebrew word “Nephesh” which means spirit.
With the above being said, it is quite understandable why our flesh would easily fail us and not be able to maintain a peace of mind when facing life’s difficulties and unchangeable circumstances, simply because our flesh cannot maintain what our spirits were made to sustain.
Someone right now is facing the greatest burden or trial of their life and their flesh has illegally taken authority over their spirit, by whispering to their spirit the following, “it isn’t worth it”, “You should commit suicide”, “Just give up”, “Life is meaningless”, “I wish I was never born”, “you must not forgive”. My friend these are all signs that your spirit is not in control in fact the weakest part of your human make us is, and that is your flesh.
The Galatians church during the time of the Apostle Paul was experiencing like problems (flesh ruling spirit) and what The Apostle Paul had to say to them of this all too common problem is about to give us clarity as to how we comprehend the term “God will not put more on us than we can bear. Paul said, that during life’s inevitable challenging days, be it the unexpected loss of a love one, the loss of a Job or even a dissolved relationship. In order not to respond or act upon what our flesh is trying to make a reality to us from a negative stand point, we must instead “Walk in the Spirit (the term walk in the Spirit is to literally live what the word of God is saying to you) and we SHALL NOT fulfill the lust or desire of our flesh.
So, isn’t it clear what we must do? So that we would not succumb to the negativity our flesh is dictating to our spirit? Therefore when God allows these seemingly unbearable burdens and loads to be placed on us, he never intended us 1) To bear it physically because physically we will always fail and it would always seem too great and 2) The more difficult it becomes he requires us to dig relentlessly in his word so that we would not fulfill what are weak flesh is requiring of us, which is ninety nine percent negative or against the will of God. Based on this understanding we must conclude that THE WORD OF GOD PACTICED, IS THE ONLY GENUINE ANTIDOTE TO OUR BURDENS AND LOADS!
In conclusion The Apostle Paul also gave the end results or fruits of what walking in the Spirit or the word of God would produce if we’re walking in it during our assigned times of heavy burdens. I mention the phrase assigned times because every human being will eventually have to walk this lonley road. Paul said, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law Galatians 5:22-23. My friend, with these results of walking in the spirit it is impossible not to be able to bear the load that you’ve been ordained to carry.

Have you ever Wondered, why is it that whenever you are given a prophetic word it seems as if all hell breaks loose? Better yet, whatever it is that was prophesied to you it would appear as if you're currently experiencing the opposite.
I want to share with you this evening the understanding as to why this happens and to further educate you that this is not happening by chance, accident or even coincidence. However, it is indeed a confirmation that the word spoken to you prophetically is not only true, but the beginning of the process of the manifestation of that prophetic word
The bible says to us in Genesis 37:8, that Joseph’s brothers hated him yet the more for his dreams, AND FOR HIS WORDS”
Please, I want to pull your attention to the phrase “his words”. “His words” would be the dream that Joseph shared with his brothers, which they interpreted that spoke about his future, and because it was revealed via the dream it can now be labeled a prophetic word.
Now, the spiritual implication behind the manifestation of a prophetic word is revealed in the following scripture. “Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him”, Psalm 105:19. In this passage of scripture king David whom I believe is the author of this scripture is speaking about Joseph. Yes! This same Joseph whom his brother hated him for his dreams and HIS WORDS.
Here is the revelation; according to this scripture it is clearly telling us that UNTIL THE APPOINTED TIME OF THAT PROPHETIC WORD TO BE MANIFESTED INTO JOSEPHS’ LIFE, THE WORD OF GOD TRIED HIM! The word tried means to test or challenge, BUT AS YOU WOULD HAVE READ IT WAS GOD DOING THIS!
So, for those of you that are frustrated and confused about the prophetic word that has been spoken over your life. Make no mistake, from the time that word was spoken until the reality of that word comes to pass. It is God himself, not the Devil that is testing, trying and conditioning you via your adversities all in an attempt to prepare you for the manifestation.
As I mentioned earlier, the evidence of the reality of that word, is everything in your life is traveling in the opposite direction of that spoken word or your whole world has turned upside down.
Heavenly father my prayer is simple this evening and that is LET THERE BE LIGHT UNTO YOUR PEOPLE in Jesus name. Amen!

The purpose of anything is the original intent as to why it exists or the unique reason it was brought into being.
It has always been my personal belief that it is humanly or spiritually impossible to master anything you don’t understand. In fact, in most cases what you don’t understand will ultimately master you, simply due to your ignorance of its purpose.
When reading or studying the bible I believe it’s imperative that we ascertain what exactly is being said, whom it’s being said to and the reason as to why it’s being said. Reasons being the words of God are laws and principles and once we understand fully the purpose of these laws, rules and principles we are then better able to engage in spiritual warfare with a clear cut understanding as to how to apply the rules of engagement.
The following scripture I have provided below, is evidence as to how a Christian can be spirit filled but because they're not aware of the spiritual rules of engagement, he/she will surly go to heaven but I can guarantee you as long as they occupy space on this earth they will most certainly live a defeated life EVEN THOUGH THEY CARRY THE CHRISTIAN TITLE!
Becoming a Christian does not automatically equip us with the knowledge of spiritual rules, laws and principles. This, my friend requires your undivided attention and commitment to the word of God. Scripture reminds us that we must study to show ourselves approved, 2 Timothy 2:15. Therefore, you just don’t get spiritual wisdom you must study to receive it….. You have not because you ask not, James 4:2…… My people are destroyed because they lack knowledge, Hosea 4:6. So, as you would have read, we are responsible for activating the weapons of our warfare via the study and implementation of God’s principles. Your disadvantage position right now I can almost guarantee you is due to spiritual ignorance. Again, as you read the scripture provided, you will undoubtedly understand how the Devil exploits our spiritual ignorance.
"And it shall come to pass in that day, that "HIS" burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and "HIS" yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing" Isaiah 10:27.
The words burden and yoke respectively are defined as: carrying a load or difficult weight. A device attached to the neck of an animal or person to oppress, burden, or enslave. The revelation in this scripture my friend, is that these burdens and yokes you’ve been carrying were NEVER YOURS TO BEGIN WITH!
This scripture is clear, and that is the initial purpose of your Anointing is to destroy, HIS yoke (the burden and yoke the enemy has convinced us was ours that he has deceitfully placed upon us). Make no mistake, worries, fears, anxieties, panic attacks, insanity, poverty, broken homes, failure and the like are burdens and yokes the Devil has bamboozle us into receiving as our personal burden and yoke.
I DARE YOU TO REMIND GOD OF THE PUROSE AS TO WHY HE GAVE YOU THE ANOINTING AND BEGIN TO USE THAT ANOINTING TO DESTROY EVERY BURDEN AND YOKE IN YOUR LIFE IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!
Heavenly Father in the name of your son Jesus Christ I prayer that the understanding of your people be enlightened via your word, and that you would provoke in them an insatiable desire to execute your laws with confidence, boldness and precision. I also pray that the scales be removed from their eyes so that they will see the things that were hidden from them due to their unbelief in Jesus name. Amen!

Distraction: to disturb or trouble greatly in mind; to draw the attention of (a person) away from something. Also to disrupt the attention of someone, preventing the ability to focus or concentrate.
With the above meaning in mind, there are so many of you reading this right now that have become greatly distracted. It has become almost impossible to remain focus on anything or give the important things in your life the attention that it needs.
My friends I want to inform you tonight that you are not dealing with the definition of a word, instead your adversary is that of a spiritual nature, WHICH IS THE SPIRIT OF DISTRACTION! The average person has been faced with this nasty spirit but have adapted to it because of its subtle nature. The following signs will conclude if you are indeed oppressed by this spirit.
Have you been feeling overwhelmed, easily confused, the simplest things seem so hard, frustration and fatigue seems to be the order of the day, extremely impatient particular if you have to wait in a line or in traffic? What about uncontrollable anger, to the point of exhaustion when you would have calmed down. Then finally a sudden and intense feeling of depression and uncontrollable crying that follows? My friend’s make no mistake; if you are experiencing these symptoms then you are clearly being tormented by the spirit of distraction whose ultimate goal is to disable you mentally.
Well tonight I have come equip with the spirit of the lord to bring you spiritual and physical relief. Firstly, we are in fact dealing with a spirit, therefore in order to defeat a spirit we need spiritual weapons. So what are the spiritual weapons made available to us? Well, Jesus said that the words that he speak, they are SPIRIT AND LIFE, John 6:63.
If the words that Jesus speaks are spirit, then clearly it is these words that we need to fight these evil spirits with. So far we understand that God's word is spirit, right? So, where is the proof in the bible that his words can heal our minds from this spirit of distraction? I am happy that you asked, scripture says, "He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction, Psalms 107:20. Wow! Does this mean that this word can heal my mind from this spirit of distraction and my in ability to focus? YES! Do I use any scripture? No! You must use specific scriptures that relates to your healing.
So, for all of you having challenges in your mind with this spirit repeat the following scriptures everyday to yourself or out loud even now,
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee", Isaiah 26:3 and also, "Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them, Psalm 119:165. Search the bible for all scriptures relating to your mind, one of my favorites, “God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of love, power and SOUNDNESS OF MIND.
As you repeat these scriptures begin to visualize in your mind the word acting as a sword, because that is exactly what it's doing according to scripture in the spirit realm as you SPEAK THE WORD!, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart, Hebrews 4:12. I promise you, just be patient and you will experience your ability to regain your focus and mental stability. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER KEY FROM THE KEYS YOU’VE BIN GIVEN TO THE KINGDOM, BE FREE!

It is always God's desire to exceed our highest expectation. Whatever it is that you're believing God for, HE WANTS TO EXCEED YOUR GREATEST DESIRE! The word exceed is defined as going beyond the limits of what is allowed or permitted. However, for this to happen, God certainly needs your full corporation. What do you mean, Kevin?
Well, scripture tells us that God will do exceedingly abundantly, and above all that we could ask or think ACCORDING to the power that works in us. Again, exceedingly means going beyond a determine mark or position, to go beyond the limits. Abundantly, on the other hand, means to be richly supplied or having something in great quantity. So far, we see that God wants to exceed our desires. However, the scripture goes on to identify our part by using the word "ACCORDING." The word according is defined as being in agreement or in harmony with someone or something.
Scripture further states, "according to the power that works in us," Now what is this power that the Apostle Paul speaks of? Well according to the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:16, he says, that he is not ashamed of the GOSPEL (The good news or the word of God) for it is the POWER unto salvation.
Let's bring it all together. God, who wants to take us beyond our limits, will not perform the exceedingly, abundantly and the above all that we could ask or think unless we are in agreement with his word, which is the power that resides in us. This simply means we must agree with his word, for example, "The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children" Psalm 115:14. Do you believe this word, are you behaving and speaking as if this word has already happened, do you repeat this word when you see the opposite of this word taking place in your life? Well, this is the understanding of the word working in us.
As proof of this revelation, Jesus said, "If ye abide in me and my WORD/POWER abides in you ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. The key to this remarkable revelation is the fact that God will not respond to your tears, situation, or challenge...... HE RESPONDS TO HIS WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, here are the keys to not only getting your prayers answered quickly but to exceed your highest expectation:
1) Search the scriptures as it relates to your challenges and give God back his word as it relates to those challenges. As an example, you are praying to God for a debt-free home, well his word says, "I will give you houses you did not build, I will give you land that you did not labor for, Deuteronomy 6:11 and Joshua 24:13. Make your request to God and support your request with his word, which is the evidence that he will do what he has said.
2) Now conclude your prayer, by asking God to exceed whatever you are asking for. If you are asking for wisdom, don't just ask for wisdom ask him to exceed the wisdom that you presently have, ask him to exceed the love in your heart, ask him to exceed your love for others, ask him to exceed your knowledge and understanding and most of all exceed your joy in the midst of whatever is challenging you emotionally.
Heavenly Father, we believe your word, and we come in agreement with your servant king David who said, “Thy word is a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path. It is my prayer, Father, that your word will break down every barrier that has caused your people to feel limited in their walk with you. I decree that as of this day that they will make their request to you with the confidence that you will do exceedingly, abundantly and above all that they could ever ask or think according to your word that works in them. We ask these things in the name of your son Jesus Christ, Amen!

Thank you Jesus, this is such a wonderful Morning. Friends I just want to give a little insight on this blessed morning. I mentioned earlier in my statement that this is a wonderful morning. Now, I am aware that many of you would probably believe I said that because I might be feeling good this morning, or because I am grateful that God has woke me up this morning, which of course are all true.
However, this morning is even more wonderful for me because I have decided in my mind that come what may in or during the course of this day IT IS A DAY THAT I HAVE DECIDED AND MADE UP IN MY MIND THAT IT IS INDEED WONDERFUL. Friends, we must grab a hold of the understanding that if we are depending on our feelings to determine that are days should be wonderful, then that tells me that a day can be filled with awesome opportunities and joy but depending on our feelings it can dictate otherwise. I encourage you to ask God this morning to assist you in abandoning all negative feelings that are contrary to this marvelous day that he has blessed us with. Ask him to assist you in lining up your thoughts to appreciate and embrace this day in spite of what may be going on in your life that you dislike. The truth is there will always be things going on in your life. So, say to those negative thoughts that are attempting to dictate your day for the negative.................. NOT TODAY!
Do something different today, take a walk on the beach this morning, and begin to pray silently as you walk and just thank God for helping you renew your mind and even maintaining the soundness of your mind. Don’t tell him about your problems you’ve bin doing that he’s fully aware of them. Say to God, please grant me stability in my mind to focus on him, and then remind him of his word, which says, “Thou will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed upon thee”. Ok so maybe you may not be near a beach, then jump in your car and drive somewhere you never drove before but while driving, begin to pray for the different people and homes that your eyes come into contact with, consider those things you are going throught and ask God to provide a solution in the lives of those folks that you've decided to pray for that maybe going through the same things you're going through. Maybe you're on your job, then take a few minutes and walk outside or go to the rest room and just begin to silently pray. Again do not focus on your problems but focus on what you've been missing due to focusing on your problems and that is life screaming at you saying, "LIVE, LAUGH, DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT, MAKE THE DECISION THAT YOU WILL BE FIFFERENT TODAY".
If you are going through a marital or financial problem, then ask God to heal someone else’s marriage or finances. Maybe you are unemployed, I strongly encourage you this morning to talk to God and pour your heart out to him with a concentrated effort of praying for someone else who's in the same position as you. I CAN NOT REPEAT IT ENOUGHT AND THAT IS YOU MUST DETERMINE TO BE DIFFERENT IN ORDER TO SEE DIFFERENT! WHAT YOU MAKE HAPPEN FOR OTHERS GOD WILL CERTAINLY MAKE HAPPEN FOR YOU……… REMEMBER WHAT YOU SOW YOU WILL MOST CERTAINLY REAP!
Lastly, while getting dress for work or wherever you have decided to go this morning, make up in your mind that you expect an encounter with God, and even if where you’re going they chose to remain the same and do things as usual, you must determine YOU WILL BE DIFFERENT BEGINNING WITH THE WAY YOU THINK.
Repeat the following statements with the mind set to be different in this day; I AM DIFFERENT, I AM A WINNER, THE SOLUTIONS TO MY PROBLEMS AREQUICKLY APPROACHING ME, I HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH, MY SITUATION ISN’T AS BIG AS IT SEEM, NOT ONLY WILL I OVERCOME BUT IN MY OVERCOMING I HAVE LEARN HOW TO INSTRUCT OTHERS HOW TO OVER COME, IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME……………. You have a bless day.
Thank you Father for those that have decided to receive your inspired words of encouragement this Morning. I pray, that in this day, that the spirits of selfishness, pride, arrogance and every other spirit that's causing these readers to place you on the back burner, to be remove permenantly in Jesus name. Finally, I pray for a renewed mind, with positive thoughts that will equal a positive outlook on life in spite of the negativity that's around them. Your word says to give thanks in all things, therefore I give you thanks for that restored marriages, restored financial situations and every other challenge that they might be faced with and most of all I give you thanks for every reader of this article that have decided and determine to be different in this day in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!

All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 2Timothy 3:16.
What an awesome passage of scripture, it has become so difficult for me just to accept the surface of any scripture. It isn't that I don't believe what it says but Scripture being God himself, I am always compelled to think that there is so much more that is being said under the surface of what ever scripture that I may be reading at that particular time. Secondly, scripture is always addressing the spirit of man. Just as food meets the nutritional needs of the human body, likewise the word of God meets the spiritual, nutritional needs of the human spirit.
With that being said, the scripture mentioned above begins by telling us that all, not some, scriptures are given by inspiration of God. Based on that statement I have to believe that whatever Scripture that pops up in my head or whatever scripture that is repeated into my hearing or understanding IS NEVER EVER BY ACCIDENT OR CHANCE. In fact, the above scripture says that God is the one that has inspired it. What is an inspiration? Well the word inspiration comes from the word inspire. To inspire means to influence or to produce or arouse a feeling or thought. Therefore inspiration from a theological understanding is a divine influence directly and immediately exerted upon the mind or soul of someone.
Now, does God provide inspiration to all men or just Christians? The truth is whether you're a Christian or not reading this article right now, you are in fact being inspired by God. The Manuel of life which is the inspired word of God (The bible) which is also filled with life's solutions, but for some strange reason there is this invisible force that keeps us away from this book but promotes our interest for any other book. Make up within your mind right now, that when you leave work today or wherever you are, you’ll make it your business that when you arrive at home you will devote at least thirty minutes to reading the bible. I can assure you that someone you haven't seen in a long time will visit you, television will distract you, your kids or spouse will prevent you or tiredness will overtake you. What about this one, do you have difficulty sleeping? Then pick up your bible and observe how sleepy you become. Believe me when I say to you no other book has this effect on the human mind and body.
You have to ask yourself, why is it that a book that only has good in it for me just so happens to be the most difficult book in the world to read, and even when afforded the opportunity to read it, it now becomes the most difficult book to understand?. Someone reading this article right now have experienced the lost of a love one and feel the need to get closer with God through the bible, you’ve said to yourself during the funeral and perhaps even after the funeral, “ I must find time for God before it’s too late” but again finding the time to read or study has become one of the most grueling task ever, why? Well it’s all because there is a real Devil fighting you! And if you don’t believe me then makeup your mind to accomplish any other task after work today and observe how hassle free it becomes when compared to reading the bible.
There is no new revelation here! The Apostle Paul said to the Church of Rome, that he was always challenged with the desire to do good but for the most part would end up doing opposite to the good that he desired or set out to do. However through the inspired revelation of God, Paul discovered that he was apart of a law or principle when he decided to do good. “I find then a law, that when I would do good, evil is present with me, for I delight in the law of God (bible) after the inward man ( his spirit) but I see another law in my members (physical being), warring (fighting) against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members” Romans 7:21-23.
So, as you can see there are forces beyond your physical understanding that are and will do everything within their power to prevent us from being inspired to do God’s will via his Manuel, which is his word. My advice to you my dear readers, now that you have been made aware that there is an opposition against our efforts to read and study the word, ask God to assist you with his Angelic host and his spirit to overcome the distractions of your mind. Also ask God to eradicate your mind of foolish thoughts that will interrupt your thinking process as you read his word and finally ask him to give you the spiritual strength to make your reading habit forming and life changing.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your peace that passes all understanding, secondly, thank you for opening the spiritual eyes of your people and inspiring them with your word that can not return unto you unaccomplished. It is my prayer Father that every opposing spirit of your word that has been successful in disabling your people from reading your word be rendered powerless in the name of Jesus Christ! I decree and declare over every reader of this article might, power, determination, consistency and an insatiable desire to know more of you via your word without delay, hindrances or procrastination in the matchless name of Jesus Christ. Amen!

VISION: an experience in which a person, thing, or event appears vividly or credibly to the mind, although not actually present. Simply put, seeing things mentally before they are manifested physically.
Wow! What an awesome understanding of the word vision. King Solomon, the world’s wisest man that ever existed said the following as it relates to the importance of vision, “Where there is no VISION the people perish, Proverbs 29:18.
If I had to use one word to define Christianity that word would be VISION. You see, based on the understanding of the word vision it causes one to see or imagine things in existence mentally prior to its physical manifestation. Everything that exists on this earth, its blue print was etched in the minds of its creator or inventor prior to its existence. Well my friend this is what makes Christianity seperate and apart from any other religion, and that is, living now mentally what you anticipate to experience the reality of later.
Well, in terms of our Christian faith we are told to call things that are not presently manifested into existing as if they are in existence already. Now, to the natural mind this sounds completely foolish. However this is what the Christian faith is all about. The Apostle Paul told the church or Corinth in his letter to them, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned, 1 Corinthians 2:14. So vision for the believer is entirely spiritual, at the same time equates to absolute foolishness to the non-believer.
The believer must always see himself succeeding, prospering, being healed of his infirmities, living in abundance, happy and enjoying life etc, even though “reality” would falsely dictate it is not so. Nevertheless so called “reality” isn’t reality if GOD SAYS IT’S SO! The truth is, this is how his creator sees him! In fact this is his creator’s VISION of him. In my humble opinion, God is the greatest motivator, he says to us in our present disliked, disadvantage position we’re the head and not the tail, we’re above only and not beneath, we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, we are more than conquerors, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, we must give no thought for tomorrow because he has addressed tomorrow already. Our bible IS A BOOK OF GOD HIMSELF TELLING THOSE THAT WILL BELIEVE WHO THEY REALLY ARE AND WHAT THEY ARE ENTITLE TO IN SPITE OF BEING IN A TEMPORAL DISADVANTAGE POSITION!
Words of Wisdom Group make no mistake you receiving from God is heavily dependent on your vision in terms of your expectation of God, because his vision of you is abundantly and unequivocally clear. As proof of this scripture tells us, “According to our faith (vision) be it unto us” Matthew 9:29. Suggesting, whatever vision we have of ourselves and our belief in that vision, we will be a participant of that vision one day.
My advice; create a vision in your mind with things that are positive and how you desire to see yourself in the future, begin to see yourself being debt free, owning your own home, putting your kids through college, living a stress free life, doing what God has called you to do, advancing yourself through education. As a reminder God said that we can do all things through him because he’s the one strengthening us to achieve our vision.
Secondly, start behaving as if it has happened to you already. When leaving work today behave as if you are going home to your own home that is fully paid off even though so call “reality” dictates that you’re still renting. When you look in your cupboards imagine it’s full to capacity but more importantly begin thanking God for what isn’t present as yet physically. Thank him for that debt free home; thank him for college tuition being paid in advance. Act as if that previous bad relationship was just a stepping stone for the vision of what you truly desire to have, and thank him for a body that has been healed. BEHAVE AS IF IT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED. LET YOUR CONVERSATIONS AND ACTIONS FROM THIS MOMENT FORWARD BE POSITIVE AS IT RELATES TO WHAT YOUR VISION AND EXPECTATION FROM GOD IS.
It is up to you my friend, life and death is in the power of YOUR TONGUE! Couple with that, Jesus said, “According to your faith (vision) be it unto you. I hope this has encouraged you, and even though I am the one writing this under the influence of the Holy Spirit I am presently being encouraged as well, as I type this simple reminder from the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit is presently echoing in my spirit right now, “If you delight yourself in me I will give you the desires of your heart, Psalms 37:4
“WHATSOEVER THINGS YOU DESIRE WHEN YOU PRAY BELIEVE THAT YOU’VE RECEIVE IT AND YOU SHALL HAVE IT” Mark 11:24.

Intimidation is almost always as a result of someone trying to gain control over someone or something that they never had control over before. Therefore intimidation acts as a disguise to strike fear in its victim to ultimately gain control and cause its victim to become subject to them.
Our bible tells us candidly that Satan is "like" a roaring Lion, seeking whom he may devour. One has to ask the question if Satan is the ultimate evil and adversary opposing the Almighty, then why is he about "acting" like a roaring lion and not equal to or greater than a lion in his behavior?
This scripture clearly exposes the limited power this so frequently talked about creature has. Christians, if Satan has to act or behave " like" a roaring lion towards us, then this spells three things for us and they are: A) his power is limited as it relates to the Christian B) he has no control over us, but attempts to gain that control via intimidation and C) he is subject to us because he has to deceive us via intimidation in order to rule over us.
My dear readers it is my job to challenge jump start, inspire and motivate the believer in the process of the renewing of their mind. So, whomever or whatever has been or is presently trying to intimidate you, know for sure that they are agents of the enemy and they are more afraid of you than you are of them. Jesus put it this way, “They are of their father the Devil”, pretending to be what they’re not, again all in an effort to gain ground they never had before.
As a matter of fact based on the understanding of the word intimidation it provides a clear cut view of the one who is really intimidated here. As a reminder our bible clearly tells us that God did not give us a spirit of fear (note: fear is a spirit). So if God isn’t providing this spirit of fear, then it is clear Satan is, seeing that these are the only two primary opposing forces. Instead the bible says God has provided us with power, love and a sound mind, 2Timothy 1:7. Now, is it not obvious why Satan is using the tool of intimidation? Well, mainly to control, or deprive us of our power, love and soundness of mind. Which clearly suggest that if he’s attempting to control or deprive us of it, then he has no present control in these areas that he’s challenging us in.
So, if your are overwhelmed by intimidation due to a doctor’s visit or a Doctor’s report, your kids possibly contracting HIV, some misunderstanding on the job, not being able to pay your bills and the like. This is the work of Satan creeping into your life to saturate your mind with negative thoughts and ultimately make you a slave to fear. Take this opportunity right now and say, SATAN, YOU AND YOUR DEMONIC FORCES I REJECT EVERY IDEA, THOUGHT AND IMIGNATION YOU ARE ATTEMPTING TO INJECT INTO MY MIND IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!
Speak to the power of darkness as if you actually see them before you, let them know that you are the one God has given power to trample over evil forces and every work of the Enemy. Let them know that greater is God who resides in you than Satan that is roaming this world.
Lastly, make no mistake these evil spirits are desperate to gain control over our will, please! Bind the spirit of intimidation and not the person. The person is just an agent who has made themselves available to the will of the enemy. As a reminder our fight is not against what is visible but those things that are invisible constantly warring against the spirit of our minds.
Heavenly Father It is my prayer that your spirits of love, power and soundness of mind aggressively rise up in every reader of this article and violently crush the head of every spirit of intimidation, fear, worry, depression, frustration and fatigue that has imprison your people. Now Father, I apply your law that says death and life is in the power of the tongue and I speak peace and clarity in their minds right now in the matchless name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!
