Our actions will follow our beliefs. So, if we believe that we can do something, then we will take action to achieve that. If we believe we cannot achieve something, then your actions will be self sabotage. As humans we are so amazing in the fact that we conform to our environment. Who we hang around, is who we become. So, if you hang around people with no vision,people who are always expecting defeat, who live in the land of IF. IF, I get this promotion, IF I get this job, IF I get healed. Your faith is lacking. The bible says, “As a man thinketh, so he is” or “where the mind goes, the man follows”. Our words we speak have SO much power.
I have conditioned myself to speak in terms of WHEN. And just because it doesn’t happen right away, does not mean you are being denied. Delay’s do not mean denial.
There is a liminal space. The liminal space is the space between the space. The threshold. Jesus liminal space was the 3 days between his crucifixion and resurrection. God is saying, “It’s here….but not yet.” Sometimes in this wilderness, in this desert space is a struggle. It is so easy to complain and whine and maybe even lose faith in this space. But, Jesus wants us to engage here, he wants us to celebrate here. Because your promotion is coming! So, know that the enemy will be ready to stop you.
You will start to be tempted. The greek word for temptation is “Peirasmos”. Which means: An experiment, a trial, a mental state, adversity. When this happens you need to get into worship! Start worshipping the Lord, start speaking life over your dreams. Do some yoga and start meditating on God’s promises. This is an awesome way to deal with the anxiety that comes with trials. Anxiety clouds our ability to learn, so we must fight it!
What goals and dreams have you set? Start saying, “When I get that promotion”, or “When my husband is healed” and watch the universe go to work for you.
The Bible says, “2 Corinthians 10:5
” We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
And the negative thoughts, the IF’S that come, don’t speak it….when you speak it, you own it.
So WHEN would NOW be a good time to change your thoughts and words?
