Understand Time, Purpose, and Work (4)
For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. - Psalm 5:12
Success will always attract hatred and envy. You must know how to handle hatred when the blessing starts to come in your work. Good success will be envied. That is why we have backbiters, but do not slow down. Move faster if the back biting will not affect you. This time of gross darkness is your time. God will transfer the wealth of the world to the hands of the righteous. Those that will not be hurt in these last days are those that carry the wine and the oil (Revelation. 6:1-6). The wine talks about the Holy Spirit, the oil talks about the anointing. Those that will not be hurt by the famine in these last days are those that get drunk in the Holy Ghost and know their God. Do not allow your head to lack oil by sinful living. The world will need your service. God sent Joseph ahead of his brethren. He was used to preserve a generation in the time of recession. He used his gift.
Be committed; do not get old on the wrong side. Do not run aimlessly around, for if you urinate on the same spot, after a time it will foam. Pursue what God wants you to pursue, for concentration is the mother of success. Pursue what you believe God for. The proof of desire is pursuit; for miracles happen where they are wanted and desired not just where they are needed. It is your need that will provoke the hunger that moves God. You know like everyone else that it is not all that need miracles that get it but those who are passionate about it.
Prayer: In the name of Jesus, I resist the spirit of fear and I will not be in bondage to the enemies of my destiny. I refuse to take side with negative situations as I choose to deliberately dream of a better life in Jesus name.
