Daily Devotional – 8/2/16 “Just wish me well!”

Just because you can’t understand my anointing, just wish me well. Although you may not be able to explain my blessings, just wish me well. Yes, she was healed from the disease doctors said there’s no cure for, wish her well. Yea, he got the job they said he wasn’t qualified for, wish him well. Yes, they got approved for the loan the other bank turned them down for, wish them well. Yes, I overcame being slandered, wish me well. Beloved, there’s going to be times when things will happen to you, for the good, that natural eyes and minds can’t explain and because they can’t, folk will bash you instead of accepting it. That’s ok! Don’t try to explain it, instead ask them, “Why can’t you just wish me well?”

Look, when you’ve overcame your past that was jacked up, stop listening to folk who say you don’t deserve what you’re reaping now. When God has given you grace although you used to live as a disgrace, quit being ashamed of the purpose you’re now walking in. When you’ve been delivered and set free, stop going into hiding every time someone slanders your name. Baby, when folk show up to cause hell, ask them, “Why can’t you just wish me well?” When folk try to ruin your reputation because you opened your business and they haven’t, ask them, “Why can’t you just wish me well?” Today, when someone is ‘hating’ on you, ask them, “Why can’t you just wish me well?” Stop fighting folk with words and in the physical when all you need to do is walk in the anointing. Yes, there will be people waiting on you to fail, there are folks camped around you who wish you’d hurry up and die but baby, live and live gloriously in the love of God! And when they come for you, send back the message, “Why can’t you just wish me well,” and be done with it.

Wish me well
