GOD REVEALED SOMETHING MOST INCREDIBLE HE WANTS ME TO SHARE WITH YOU!!! AGAIN I SHARED ALMOST TWO WEEKS AGO HOW PRIDE OPERATES OUT OF THE PLACE OF INSECURITY.
WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF PASSOVER AND DURING PASSOVER THE JEWS BURN UP THE LEAVEN PRODUCTS, AS IN KEEPING WITH SCRIPTURE TO NOT HAVE ANY LEAVEN IN THE HOME. LEAVEN REPRESENTS THAT WHICH WOULD BE ‘PUFFED UP’ INDICATING SIN AND EVEN PRIDE. I BRIEFLY MENTIONED THE AREA OF PRIDE AND INSECURITY LAST WEEK.
PRIDE OPERATES FROM THE PLACE OF INSECURITY IN OUR SOUL. GOD SHOWED ME THAT LUCIFER WAS SO INSECURE AND IN PRIDE THAT he WANTED OTHERS TO WORSHIP him. IT WAS NOT BECAUSE LUCIFER FELT he WAS ALL POWERFUL, BUT RATHER BECAUSE he WAS EXTREMELY INSECURE AND DUE TO THAT INSECURITY PRIDE MANIFESTED CAUSING him TO BE PUFFED UP AND WANT (NEED) OTHERS TO WORSHIP him.
THE LORD BEGAN TO OPEN MY EYES IN AREAS IN MY LIFE WHERE I WAS INSECURE AND SHOWED ME LEFT AND RIGHT HOW PRIDE OPERATED IN MY INSECURITY. I WAS BLOWN AWAY TO SAY THE LEAST.
WHAT IS AMAZING IS THIS PAST WEEK WHEN I WAS MINISTERING IN WINFIELD, ALABAMA AND GO TO TREACH (TEACH AND PREACH- MY FAVORITE THING) GOD REVEALED EVEN MORE!! HE SHOWED ME THAT OUR INSECURITY CAME FROM THE PLACE OF OUR DISAPPOINTMENT!!!! WHILE I WAS PREACHING AND OH MY, THE ANOINNTNG WAS SO STRONG I DIDN’T KNOW IF I COULD BEAR IT, GOD SAID THAT OUR INSECURITY COMES FROM THE PLACE OF OUR DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!
GOD REVEALED THAT AREAS IN OUR LIFE WHERE WE ALLOWED DISAPPOINTMENT TO SETTLE IN (HAVING NOT HIS HOPE; HIS HOPE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT) THEN INSECURITY WOULD RISE UP IN ALL AREAS OF OUR LIFE!! INSECURITY IN YOUR SOUL OPERATES FROM THE PLACE(S) OF YOUR DISAPPOINTMENT! THEN GOD REVEALED HOW HIS WORD HEALS US AND DOES NOT DISAPPOINT BUT RATHER APPOINTS US!!!!! REMEMBER DIS-APPOINT IS THE OPPOSITE OF APPOINT AND IS MORE THAN DISCOURAGMENT!!!!!
DISAPPOINT IS BEING DIS-APPOINTED WHERE WE FEEL CUT OFF FROM GOD!!! THEREFORE, KNOW IN THIS HOUR THAT GOD IS REVEALING PRIDE THAT IS OPERATING FROM PLACES OF YOUR INSECURITY WHICH HAVE RESULTED FROM YOUR DISAPPOINTMENT(S)!!!
A GREAT EXAMPLE WAS IN THE GABBY DOUGLAS MOVIE, THE GYMNANST THAT WON THE GOLD IN THE OLYMPICS. PRIOR TO THE OLYMPIC TRY OUTS COMING UP MONTHS OUT AND PREPARING FOR THE VISA CHALLENGE SHE INJURED HER LEG AND ALTHOUGH THE LEG RECOVERED GABBY WAS STILL LEFT IN THE PLACE OF DISAPPOINTMENT. THAT PLACE WHERE HER SOUL SETTLED IN CREATED HER TO BE EXTREMELY INSECURE THAT SHE DID NOT DO WELL AT THE VISA CHALLENGE. HOWEVER, WHEN SHE GOT HER HOPE IN GOD SHE WAS NO LONGER DISAPPOINTED BUT FILLED WITH HOPE, APPOINTED!!!! THAT APPOINTMENT BROUGHT HER TO THE STAGE TO RECEIVE HER OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL!!!!!!!!!!
IT IS NO DIFFERENT FOR YOU!!!!!! GOD HAS AN APPOINTMENT FOR YOU IF YOU WOULD BUT LET HIM GO TO THAT PLACE OF DISAPPOINTMENT AND BRING FORTH HIS HOPE!!!!
THEREFORE, I PRAY THAT YOU NO LONGER HOPE IN YOUR HOPE BECAUSE YOUR HOPE WILL ALWAYS DISAPPOINT. RATHER, THAT YOUR HOPE WOULD BE THE HOPE OF GOD THAT NEVER DISAPPOINTS!!!! I DECLARE YOUR PLACE OF INSECURITY THAT IS A WOUND NEEDING TO BE CLEANSED OUT BY THE WASHING OF THE WORD COMES FORTH INTO THE LIGHT OF GOD’S TRUTH, WHEREBY GOD FLOOD THE EYES OF YOUR HEART WITH HIS UNDERSTANDING TO FLOOD FORTH THE LIGHT OF HIS TRUTH, IN JESUS NAME!!!! (EPHESIANS 1:17-23)
I DECLARE YOU ARE IN THE STRONGHOLD OF GOD’S HOPE WHERE HE WILL NOW, NOW, NOW GIVE YOU A DOUBLE PORTION OF JOY UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL OF GLORY, IN JESUS NAME!!! (ZECHARIAH 9:12)
I DECLARE YOUR HOPE IS IN THE HOPE OF GOD THAT NEVER DIS-APPOINTS YOU BUT RATHER APPOINTS YOU INTO THE CAL OF CHRIST JESUS, FILLING YOU COMPLETELY IN THE SATISFACTION OF GOD!!!! IN JESUS NAME!!!!!
1 Therefore, since we are justified (acquitted, declared righteous, and given a right standing with God) through faith, let us [grasp the fact that we] have [the peace of reconciliation to hold and to enjoy] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 2 Through Him also we have [our] access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God’s favor) in which we [firmly and safely] stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God. 3 Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance.
4 And endurance (fortitude) develops maturity of character (approved faith and tried integrity). And character [of this sort] produces [the habit of] joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation. 5 Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us. ROMANS 5:1-5 AMP
