Daily Devotional – 8/19/15 “A turbulent shift!”

When you are ready to work for the Lord, be ready because baby when you tell Him you are; He begins to open doors for you. This is why you have to be careful what you speak. The tongue has power to put you in positions you didn’t even think were possible but it’s when you’re ready. All you have to do is submit to the Lord and He’ll direct your path. However, please understand – don’t make a vow to the Lord if you aren’t ready because if you say you’re ready to work, He has work for you to do. Yea, you’ll look around and be amazed at how much differently your life has become, in a short matter of time. That’s because God doesn’t have to wait to elevate you. See, He knows what you’re capable of doing; He’s simply waiting on you to catch on. He knows what you are destined to be, He had to wait until you saw it in yourself. And now, things are beginning to take flight in your life. Yea, I know you felt the trembling but that’s just the turbulence during your transition. You may have even felt a little pressure but that was only because you were changing altitudes.

Please understand this; in the midst of change, chaos can happen but it’s a part of the process. Do you think the enemy will allow you to enjoy the benefits of being blessed without bothering you? Nope! But he cannot do anything without the permission of your Father. So, if you are experiencing a sudden change in your surroundings, it may be turbulent weather due to your impending elevation; don’t count it out just yet. Yes, it’s hard but everything worth having is worth working for. And if you are experiencing turbulence that means you’re moving, you’re being shifted, your position is changing, your elevation is at hand; deal with it for it’ll soon stop. Praise your way through it for it won’t last because soon you’ll see your destination ahead at victory! Yea, the turbulence may cause you to be shook, bumped around, knocked down or maybe thrown into some unfamiliar places but don’t let it scare you out of staying the course! Turbulence means shift and with God, a shift is always good!

“Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 1 Peter 4:12-13”
