Flip It

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(MARCH 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 4)
FLIP IT-When faced with adversities, sudden emergencies, uncertainties of life, sudden bad news, anxiety or fear. I am learning that the first reaction is to turn the presenting negative situation to positive by declaring the Word of God and taking positive productive steps on the situation; FLIP IT! Doing this as Believer, is in itself a type of spiritual warfare that dictates our thoughts, emotions, reactions and actions!
FLIP IT by TURNING TO PRAYER- Isaiah 38:1-5, 2 Kings 20:1-6-When King Hezekiah was told that he was going to die from an illness, his first reaction was a turn towards the wall and prayer. He FLIPPED the bad news by refusing to accept it and sort God for mercy in prayer. God healed King Hezekiah and extended 15 more years of good health and life to him. Prior to this, King Hezekiah had been threatened by another nation that blasphemed God and wanted to wage war with the King. This time King Hezekiah received the letter, read it and went and spread the letter before the Lord in prayer. Because of his prayer, the Lord sent His Own Angel to fight the Assyrians. The Lord also restored Hezekiah’s kingdom. 2 Kings 19. Here again Hezekiah FLIPPED IT!
FLIP IT by ENCOURAGING YOURSELF IN THE LORD. Why so down cast oh my soul put your hope in God! This may have been the song David was singing after the attack at Ziklag. Though weary, tied and emotionally drained; David strengthened himself in the Lord; HE FLIPPED IT. 1 Samuel 30. You may have been in a long warfare, waiting, endurance or life draining situation. Funga ukanda (Swahili for fasten your belt), guard up your loins, shake off the dust, gear up, stand up. Greater is in you that he that it in the world.
FLIP IT by CONFESSING THE GOD’S PROMISES AND WORD concerning the situation. The Word of God is Life and is also Alive John 1;1. God’s Word ALWAYS contradicts every negative issue. Where cannot, the Word brings CAN, where sickness is, the Word brings HEALING, where bondage is, the Word brings DELIVERANCE, where sin is, the Word bring forgiveness through the Blood of Jesus and through mercy and grace. Where impossibilities deem, the Word brings ALL POSSIBILITIES.

FLIP IT by TRUSTING IN THE LORD- Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight yet paths. Proverbs 3:5-6. Flip by turning your trust from man, friend, resources, mentor, pastor to GOD. Flip my trusting the Creator of all and not His creation. Trust through persistent faith even if that faith is that of a mustard seed, it can still move the mountains; the situations. Flip it by leaning on His everlasting arms.

FLIP IT by WAITING UPON THE LORD- They that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength, Isaiah 40:31. We wait in thanksgiving, worship and praise. We wait while still pushing and pursuing, focused on our Delivered. We wait as we stay consistent in whatever assignment or calling He has assigned us, avoiding any distractions. We wait in the Spirit and not by our flesh.

FLIP IT by STANDING- And after you have done all then STAND-Ephesians 6:13-14 knowing that you have the full armor of the Highest God. Flip it by standing on the Unshakable Rock who is Greater in you than the situation you are facing. Flip it knowing the Right Hand of the Lord is doing valiant on your behalf.

So this week, FLIP IT in prayer, flip it by encouraging yourself, flip it as we speak the Words of Life, His Words, Speak His promises, when we confess, salvation comes. Flip it as WE PUT ALL OUR TRUST IN THE LORD. Flip it as we wait in thanksgiving and praise. Finally Flip it by standing, staying tied and hooked on Christ the Solid Rock. Not by might nor by power BUT BY MY SPIRIT says the Lord of hosts, Zechariah 4:6. Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Our homes are healed

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(MARCH 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 3)

OUR HOMES ARE HEALED -Two Sundays ago after church, while overtaken by His presence, I heard Him say very clearly “your house is healed”. As I pondered into the declaration, God showed me that the healing was from negative or contrary words that had been spoken in our homes.
Spoken words are very powerful; even unspoken words (thoughts) can impact someone. By God’s Grace, we are living in houses we did not build and even if we built them, we may not have owned the land the houses are built on. (Deuteronomy 6:10-12). We may have spoken these negative words ourselves, OR people who lived in our houses, homes or lands may have spoken something contrary to the purposes of God.
So this week, let us declare our homes and households healed. This includes any dwelling that you call home. Let’s start by repenting of any negative words we have spoken in our homes, to our children or spouses, siblings, relatives and friends. Let’s cleanse our homes from words that were spoken in our absence before we got into the homes. Let’s rid our homes of any negative generational or geographical negative words that were spoken before we got here. Most arguments occur in our cars, let’s cleanse our vehicles of very negative word. At the Cross Jesus cancelled every curse.
PRAYER-Lord I repent of every careless word that I have spoken over my life, in this house, over my children, husband and wife. I ask for your forgiveness. I release the Blood on Jesus in each room in this house, in my car, in my business building and in the workplace. I revoke any covenant that I established by those words in the name of Jesus. By confession, salvation comes (Romans 10:10). So I declared my house healed, I release blessings, favor…. declare every positive thing according to God’s Word that you want for your house and household
Remember words are prophetic, what we say is bound to happen. Watch what you say, Christ Himself warned that we will be judged for every empty(careless) word we speak. (Matthew 12:36). Since words are prophetic and God desires that ALL prophesy, speak God’s Word into your life, your home, over your children, concerning your job. Speak the Word and watch the turn around. OUR HOMES ARE HEALED! Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Maximizing our assignments in the stages of life

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(MARCH 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 2)

MAXIMIZING OUR ASSIGNMENTS IN THE STAGES OF LIFE-I experienced a radical paradigm shift on Friday Feb 4th, 2016 after watching a post that was forwarded to me. In this video, two single ladies encouraged other singles in their walk and life in Christ. The paradigm shift came when these sisters shared the importance of focusing on your assignment while still single. Whereas the post was geared towards singles, it dawned on me that what they shared applies to all areas of life. I gathered, that:
If single, God has specific assignments for you to accomplish in your singlehood. Are you focusing and committed to this assignment or distracted? What if God told you that you have only 9 months to go as a single person, would you have completed your assignment (s) by the end of the 9 months?
If already married, are you focused in your assignment as a married man, woman or couple or are you distracted. Do you have a vision or mission for your marriage? Joshua had one; as for me and my house we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
If in a career, college or ministry, are you focused on your assignments while here or are you distracted.
In my journey with God so far, I have learned that God teaches, chastens and promotes in stages. I highlight this in the new book Called to Ministry, Now What! It behooves one to stay in tune with what God is doing with us at any stage, lest He allows you to repeat the issue over and over till you learn the lesson. By the way, It is God who determines when you graduate to the next level NOT you.
With all these in mind, on Feb 5th, 2016, I recommitted my life to God again (I’m repeating again, twice, for the second time, because nowadays under conviction, I find myself recommitting and submitting to God and the Holy Spirit over and over. I’ve stopped reasoning and arguing with God)
I repented of having wasted time and resources, and allowed distractions to blind me from my assignments in this stage of my life. I realized the need to refocus on the assignments God has given me in ministry, career, family. Then I submitted. I asked God to refuel me and asked the Holy Spirit to recharge me I prayed earnestly, God help me see and know what assignments I need to complete now. Redefine them to me Lord and before each stage is over; help me accomplish each assignment successfully, with a “well done, bravo! good and faithful servant” Matthew 25:21-23. I will put you in charge of many things come any share your Master’s happiness. Promotion only comes after successful completion of our assignments.
PRAYER-Dear Lord, please help us RECOGNIZE & COMPLETE our assignments in every stage of our lives. Amen. Our prayer for the week. Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

You are complete in Christ

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(MARCH 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 1)

YOU ARE COMPLETE IN CHRIST-Be encouraged this week because Jesus has made you complete. You are whole the way you are; so do not let anyone or any situation convince you otherwise. You are complete because

  • It was finished-At the Cross, Christ declared that it was finished. Any set back, any hindrance, any low self-esteem any inferiority, sin, sickness, curses, death were all addressed and conquered at the cross. The Cross has made you flawless. You are complete because IT WAS & IT REMAINS FINISHED!
  • You lack no good thing -Psalm 34:10-The young lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. Psalm 84:11. The Lord bestows favor and honor to those who walk uprightly; He withholds no good thing from them. He knows our needs even before we ask, He grants us the desires of our hearts. God is timeless, delays are not in His vocabulary, He can do 1000 years in one day, and in one day extend 1000 years, He is the only one Who sees the end from the beginning. We are complete because GOD WITHOLDS NOT GOOD THING!
  • When you ask, seek or Knock-God responds. He is the lord who hears and responds to our prayers, calls and cries. When we call on Him, He responds. Matthew 7:7. When anxious, He promises assurance to provide, in fear, He promises to protect, in weakness, His grace remains sufficient for us to strengthen and change the order of events. We are complete because our ULTIMATE FATHER HEARS US & because HIS PROMISES ARE SURE
  • In Him you Live and Move and have your being- not in the fellow man, not in things not in riches, achievements and accolades. But because the Spirit that gives life lives and works with us, we are complete by the Holy Spirit, the breath of God, whom we breath and filled with daily, to life, move and co-exist in God. Through Him the Holy Spirit, we are empowered, counselled, activated, anointed, imparted, convicted and directed. We are complete, BECAUSE IN HIM WE LIVE, MOVE & HAVE OUR BEING
  • GOD KNEW YOU BEFORE you were born. -Before you became an embryo, God already knew and elected you as His own. Before you became saved, God knew you would, He selected you. As you grew, He gave you specific personalities, attributes, physiques, gives and talents THAT CAN ONLY BE EXPRESSED & EXERCISED BEST BY YOU; this make you complete in Him!
  • Most important, YOU ARE CREATED IN GOD’S OWN IMAGE- What more would be more important than this. This alone makes you complete, as the image of God, saved and sanctified, set apart as a co-heir of with Christ, seated by the right hand of God to reign with Christ. You are endowed the covenant and the inheritance; the power and authority to reign heaven and earth from HERE ON EARTH, then eventually reign together with Him eternally.

As we venture into this month, the 3rd month of the year, KEEP YOUR HEAD UP, walk in the completeness and the authority of Whose and Whom YOU ARE. Denounce and reject any contrary name, label you had been given or even assigned yourself. WALK IN WHOLENESS HENCEFORTH, YOU ARE COMPLETE IN CHRIST. Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Signs and Symptoms of Soul Ties

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(FEBRUARY 2016 BLOGS. Week 4)

SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF SOUL TIES- Thanks to many who responded privately and openly on this week’s blog from Sunday. From personal experience, at times I have experienced faster deliverance and healing because I had knowledge or insight of what I wanted freedom from. For those who are/ being healed from the past, I share these as led of the Spirit and from teachings & study of this topic to help you identify potential areas you may examine for better healing: Here are some signs of soul ties

  • You are constantly thinking or have fantasies about this person
  • You are constantly thinking about this person even after they left and or despite you having another person. For example, if you are married /dating and still thinking and or wishing you were with your EX, you have a soul tie with the EX.
  • You have items from this person that you cannot get rid of because they keep you connected to the person even after they have left.
  • The person is your first contact for everything. This person knows your life like a book or you feel obliged to share everything with them.
  • You cannot make any major decision without consulting and getting approval from this person.
  • You look up to this person for affirmation,
  • You are needy of this person or the person makes you feel like you need them and cannot survive without them.
  • Your life and resources revolve around this person,
  • You give more (time, money or service) to this person and receive less or nothing from them. (Healthy Relationships should be reciprocated not one sided)
  • You sacrifice to give the person what they need while you stay in lack or at a stand still
  • Although the person has or may hurt you, you cannot get away from the person or see a way out. Instead, you rationalize and accommodate the person’s negative behaviors.
  • You are fearful of the person and you do whatever they ask you to do whether it does not make sense, whether it is unethical or harmful to you & others (this is a form of witchcraft)
  • With time, you may sense as though you are under the control of the person, Worse yet, the person controls, manipulates, threatens you for their benefit not yours. This is dangerous and are signs of witchcraft. (In my opinion, witchcraft is not limited to voodoo, white or black magic)
  • The person uses passive aggressive ways to entice you to meet their needs and you seem smitten by their tactics.

Caution- Intimate relationships and sexual interactions are not the only way soul ties can be acquired. ANY KIND OF RELATIONSHIP HAS THE POTENTIAL TO CREATE A SOUL TIE. Soul ties can be acquired through well-meaning people such as parents, siblings, co-workers, grandparents, aunts and uncles, persons of influence such as bosses, pastors, mentors or spiritual leaders. Unhealthy soul ties can be experienced in marriages also. SOUL TIES ARE GENDER NEUTRAL

Just remember that total dependence on a woman or man or anything and even YOURSELF is idolatry. The 1st Commandment “You shall have no other gods before God. (Exodus 20:3):

PRAYER-May God continue to heal and deliver you through this post today. Stay strong, God who has started healing you will bring this healing and deliverance to totality and completion. We will wrap up the blog on soul ties next week. I will also share some wonderful resources on this topic next week. A must have! Loves! Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

God’s sure Love

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(FEBRUARY 2016 BLOGS. Week 3)

GOD’S SURE LOVE is for those who may think are unloved or rejected” for those who have been, dumped, used, exploited, frustrated, experienced broken engagements, the divorced and widowed.
Let us PURSUE HEALING THIS WEEK – Valentine’s day may have come to many as somber or depressive moments. The thought of lovers, engagements or weddings may leave some in utter pain of disappointment. These apply to males(brothers) or females(sisters)
Most human beings have a need for acceptance, belonging and love. To some of you who did not experience any of these, especially from childhood, we can be vulnerable by looking for acceptance love and belonging in wrong things, people and places. PLEASE DO NOT COMPROMISE UNDER THESE PRESSURE(S). SOME OF THE COSTS OF COMPROMISE ARE REALISTICALLY IRREVERSIBLE & PRACTICALLY DEADLY
I share these personal lessons; It is important that you heal completely before God promotes you to the next level. Whenever God shuts the door, it is for better and greater things. If satan shuts the door, it is always temporary because God has the Upper Hand. God ALWAYS restores and recompenses. SEE the perfect stories of Joseph, Job, Daniel, the widow who was supplied with more oil, Jesus multiplying out of lack, to left -over 12 baskets of food.
PRAYER- Father in the name of Jesus, forgive me for not loving myself. I release anger, bitterness and unforgiveness against past lovers. By the Blood of Jesus, I break ALL soul ties with past lovers or any man or woman who has betrayed, lied to me, used me, sexually abused me, molested me, physically and emotionally abused me. I forgive all of them and divorce the soul ties that have caused me pain, disappointment, anger, depression, loneliness and neediness. Jesus, I embrace your acceptance, I accept your love. I receive the joy and peace of the Holy Spirit. I am healed, I receive your rest. In Jesus Name-Amen
Now that you have cut off soul ties, delete the phone numbers, photos and or GET RID OF anything that would make you reconnect mentally, physically, spiritually or emotionally with that person (s)
SOAK IN GOD’S LOVE-God’s comfort, restoration and power is really captured in Psalms. Read the whole book of Psalms this week. From Psalms Chapter 1 to 150. BE RESTORED. Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Nothing can or will separate us from the love of God

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(FEBRUARY 2016 BLOGS. Week 2)

NOTHING CAN or WILL SEPARATE YOU FROM THE LOVE OF GOD. No worst sin, no imperfection, no man, no woman, no clergy, no situation, no nation, no principality, no death nor life, not present things or things to come can separate you from the Love of God.

  • God loves each of us unconditionally and ever present, enduring forever
  • His Love for us is IRREVOCABLE
  • He loves us the way we are, because He created in His own image.
  • God is Love; He is personified in us through Love
  • His Love brings, joy and inner peace, not the contrary
  • God’s Love for us manifests in His protection of us, His Defense & Deliverance, His healings and salvation, His restoration and Restitution
  • His Love, is a preservative love; we are His Chosen Treasures, Apples of His eyes, set apart for Him, engraved in the palm of His Hands, God’s Beloved
  • God’s love extends to Royalty, Peculiarity, Uniqueness, fearfully created, that is what we are in Him
  • He enjoys our fellowship, worship and praises. In term, He rejoices over us with singing and praise
  • God’s love is very closer than that of a sister, brother or parent
  • His love is very accommodating, embracing and welcoming. He calls each us by our names, apparently, we are also His friends
  • He has no restriction as to when we can contact Him or address Him. He is ever present in the time of need.
  • In Him we are never alone, though occasionally lonely, in those moments, He is still there as the Omnipresent God, the Comforter and Counsellor; the Person of the Holy Spirit
  • His Loves shows up as our Redeemer, Savior and Friend
  • We are ever in the company of the Highest God, Jesus Christ who constantly intercedes for us and the Holy Spirit. This is the magnitude of the Love of God. In addition, to giving us His Son to die for us, God has also afforded us unselfishly; His
  • Fullness. That as His Children we have accessibility to The Trinity.

Our God is the Ultimate Love. GOD LOVES US. Whenever God sees us, He says I love you. RECEIVE, ACCEPT GOD’s LOVE Today. EMBRACE this Love this entire week. The one the Lord loves, rests upon His shoulders. Happy Valentine’s day. Happy Valentine’s week.
Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Keep the doors shut from Soul ties

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(FEBRUARY 2016 BLOGS. Feb 5th posting)

KEEP THE DOOR SHUT FROM SOUL TIES- Last week we released and cut off soul ties. This week we are keeping the door shut. Do not reestablish a covenant with what you have been delivered from for these reasons:

  • You have just cleaned house. You know need to receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit in order to experience the fullness of Christ. The Holy Spirit who is the ever flowing River, will refresh, sooth and continually heal you till you are completely whole. You also need the Holy Spirit because your own efforts of the flesh will fail. It is not by might (our own abilities or talents), but by the Spirit says the Lord (Zechariah 4.6).BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • If you keep yourself empty, the one you denounced, kicked out, cut off will return with 7 more others. Your condition will be worse the second time around than before (Matthew 12:43-45). Have you ever noticed that if you left something for a while, when exposed to it later you crave or take more of it? That like me and cheesecake. I’ve avoided strawberry cheesecake for quite a while now, but it you give me a whole cheesecake pie, I can eat the whole cake in one seating. Same principle applies, the person you let back in maybe more destructive, abusive, exploitive than before. KEEP THE DOOR SHUT!

STEPS TOWARDS FREEDOM

  • Self-examination, self-reflection and decision – The first step to any deliverance and repentance is to do these 3 things. If you are the SOUL TIER, you must release whomever you have tied down/up. Reasons for tying others down stem from underlying rejection, insecurity, low self-esteem or low self-worth and laziness; but the main issue is actually Fear. Then you must want the deliverance. Please do not seek help if you are not serious about the help.
  • PRAYER. – With Christ and the Holy Spirit in you, be assured that you can pray for your own deliverance initially. So first we have to repent for the part we played in these soul ties. 2) Renounce and denounce (cut the off, have nothing to do with them), 3) revoke, cancel, cut off any covenant they have with you or your resources.4) Command them out of your mind, spirit, body, body organs, heart and emotions 5) receive the Holy Spirit, receive healing. 6) embrace God’s love. 7) walk in your freedom and keep the door shut! These are initial areas you can pray about.
  • Seek additional prayer from your pastor or a respectable and credible deliverance minister. I would not recommend deliverance prayer through social media. My other caution is to only seek deliverance prayer if you want deliverance and tired of what has held you down; but if still intend to reach out to whoever you kicked out, please hold off till you are ready. You will save both the pastor and you some valuable time

RESOURCES- Ungodly Soul Ties by Pastor Nellie-Shani (CD/DVD- Purchase online)-Highly recommend this (2)-Biblical Healing and Deliverance (Book by Chester and Betsy Kylstra (Book- This is a must read for all believers). (3) Open my Heart, Lord- Healing for the broken hearted- Kathi Oates with Robert Paul Lamb (book). 4)Curses and Blessings- Derek Prince 5) Curse-Proof in Christ, a free download from www.jonsnyderministries.com

By his stripes we WERE healed, this includes emotional and mental healing. Walk in the fullness of your healing and freedom. Whatever you do, KEEP THE DOOR SHUT

My Love Story

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(FEBRUARY 2016 BLOGS. Week 1)

MY LOVE STORY-This week I will share my personal testimony of how Love continues to sustain me in life. God is Love.
Words of Affirmation. I have seen Love assure from my childhood that I am His own. I have seen Him strengthen and encourage me when there was no one to turn to. I have heard Love speak encouragement and cheer me to pull through. I have seen Love talk on my behalf as an Advocate. I have seen Love prophesy over me and confirm His Words to me. On the morning of Dec 19th, 2013, I heard Love tell me very audibly, “The Almighty God is my (Pauline’s) Father”.

Acts of Service- I have seen Love fight fiercely for me and my family. I have heard of Him show up as a watchman dressed in white guarding our home in the slums of Kenya at night. I have seen Him offer warnings and counsel through dreams, visions and audible disclosures. I have seen Love pull me up from the depths of darkness and anchor me on a cliff of a Rock. I have seen Love preserve my life and the lives of my siblings from the evil plot of the destroyer. Oh I have seen Love commanding that we relocate ASAP before the angel of death destroyed a community. That night Love warned audibly through Bekki. I have seen Love make a way and show up at” my self-assigned last minute!” Oh, I have seen Love preserve me through the eyes of Grace and Mercy to still forgive and protect me although I was in sin. I have seen Love defiantly fight for me in spiritual warfare in 2010 and between April 2014 through January 2016. I have seen the Right Hand of Love (God). I have seen Love’s tolerance & patience of me

Receiving Gifts- I have seen Love restore my mind, soul and body. I have seen Love heal, deliver then refill afresh with Fresh Oil, Fresh Glory, Fresh Fire, Fresh Joy and Fresh Peace. I have seen Love resurrect dormant gifts, enhance existing ones and endow greater newer gifts. I have seen the FREEDOM OF LOVE. Recently, I experienced the Perfect Peace of Love. Then it dawned on me that this was the “peace that surpasses human understanding”. I now have it. Oh the TRANQUILITY OF THIS PEACE

Quality Time- I have seen Love birth a new hunger, I have seen Love demand for purity of intensions and commitment. I have seen Love cherish and discipline simultaneously. I heard Him calling with urgency to the prayer room and when I got there, I found Love waiting to minister. Oh I have seen Love minister for weeks in the car that often I had to pull over and wait till He was done because Love’s presence was so dense that I was subdued in His Glory. I have seen Love disrupt my agenda and routines because He wants to reveal something to me. I have seen Love teach, counsel, reveal to me and impart me. I have seen Love’s humor me, where we both laugh and I go “that was so funny Holy Spirit” or You crack me up Holy Spirit”. But then, I have also seen Love say or do something and I go “seriously God? “Really”, “that is not fair”; then conclude, “thank you Holy Spirit, I now see what you mean”. I have driven home from a long work day and found Love waiting for me in the living room.

Physical Touch-I have seen Love give me a memorable hug through an aging gentleman with special needs. I have seen Love show up with bouquet of flowers through a peer in the office. Have seen Love show up through loyal and committed pool of staff whom I am grateful for. I have seen Love show up in favor with man, with the employer, with friends and family. I have seen Love open greater doors and I have seen Love also shut doors dangerous doors despite me wanting to keep the dangerous doors open! I have seen Love heal me from great offenses, wounds and infirmity. I have seemed Love set my mind free of strongholds. I have seen Love impart me with great humor and free Spirit of utter joy, I have seen Love deliver me from fear and anoint me with boldness. I have seen Love raise me up to His lap and cuddle me in His comfort. One day in 2009, in response to a personal affirming statement, I heard Love say “and God Loves you (Pauline) too”. On that day, I embraced my new name; Beloved Polly. I HAVE SEEN GOD!

Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Blessings and Love in Christ Jesus- Pauline

Stubbornness is self imposed hinderance

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(JANUARY 2016 BLOGS. Week 4)

STUBBORNNESS IS SELF-IMPOSED HINDRANCE-Now that God has accepted our prayers, let’s not allow stubbornness to hinder our breakthrough, deliverance or the many blessings that are coming our way. Stubbornness is a hindrance to greater things God wishes to bestow to us. See Exodus: 7.13 Pharaoh’s heart grew hard, he did not heed Moses and Aaron, just as the Lord said… Exodus 8:19-Then the magicians said to Pharaoh “this is the finger of God, but Pharaoh’s heart grew hard and he did not heed them just as the Lord said.

Stubbornness is not assertiveness. It is self-idolatry because it dictates that “it is my way or no way “The root of stubbornness is fear, pride coupled rebellion and resistance. These are attributes of satan. Stubbornness is false self-confidence, which equals pride, which equals satan himself. STUBBORNESS IS UNBELIEF=FEAR. If not repented of or not renounced, stubbornness leads to a reprobate mind Romans 1.28 which leads one to do whatever they want. See Pharaoh in the key Scriptures above.
.
When you have a reprobate mind, you become vulnerable. In this vulnerable state, you become a target for anyone or anything. Satan NORMALLY ATTACKS WHEN YOU ARE MOST VULNERABLE! You can easily open doors for demonic spirits of anger, rage, self-destructive behaviors, marital fights and separations, addictions, financial lack, mental instability and even death.

Stubbornness occludes your mind and thought process. This is because all you see is your way. When your mind is occluded, YOU IGNORE or DISCREDIT WARNINGS & GOOD COUNSEL! You avoid facing reality. Like Pharaoh above, he was warned at most 9 times; even his confidants the magicians acknowledged God’s power and advised Pharaoh to submit to Moses’s instructions, but he refused.

BELIEVE! This week, do not allow stubbornness to hinder or delay your breakthrough, deliverance or blessing this year. In prayer, let us ask the Holy Spirt to expose areas of stubbornness that may be existing. Let us pull out the generational roots, repent and renounce stubbornness in the Name of Jesus. Holy Spirit fill us a fresh, mature and counsel us as we walk in the fruits of the Spirit. Now let us Praise God with expectations of overflowing blessings and greater answers to prayers from last week’s blog. Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Blessings and Love in Christ Jesus -Pauline
