As I’ve walked in the victory of knowing what Christ has done for me and that I have yet to see God’s very best for my life, I am constantly evaluating the direction in which my life is heading. .Just like an old cliché saying states “Everything is good but, not everything is beneficial”; this can be translated to discernment. Now you may be asking yourself, how do you identify what leads you to victory 100% of the time? The answer is simple; you need 20/20 vision in the spirit. The holy spirit is within you and, he guides you to the truth. There is power in the name of Jesus and, there is victory in the name of Jesus. Therefore, because you know that Christ has already won, you can walk boldly and confidently knowing that the victory is already yours because, you are a coheir with Christ. You are the son and the daughter of the most High God. Isn’t that something that is worth praising and shouting about?!?!?!?!
You may be saying to me; “Ok Dani, I understand everything you are saying, but why is this so important”? It is imperative to be aware and to know that, everyday, we are fighting battles. These battles are not necessarily physical, they are spiritual. The greatest battle you will have is in your mind. It is very important that if you are not, you should get plugged in to a local church. (If you don’t have one and you are in the Miami area, check out Metro Life Church. #LifeBeginsHere ) It is within a church that you build a support system through the relationships that you make. There are people there who are ready to encourage you and to hold you accountable. You also have pastors who are praying for you and who are coming alongside you and partnering with you. Through the word of God, not only do you get your mind renewed, you get your brain washed. Now brain washed is an iffy term to say, I am not talking about a manipulative state of mind. Brain washing is when you allow God to use the detergent called his word and his spirit to make you clean and to revitalize what is on the inside of you.
I spoke about being able to have discernment. Now, it is time for you to decide. You need to hold on and stay in the game in every battle. You will reap if you faint not. There is no need for you to hide anymore or for you to pretend to be someone that you are not. The victory is yours and the enemy knows that, which is why he is afraid. The enemy will always try to attack on the brink of multiplication (when you new season of elevation is coming/ the breakthrough you are waiting for!). You have to declare the word of God over your circumstance. What you are saying may contradict what you are seeing. Are you going to say what your friends think or will you say what your faith declares?
Faith and reason are not opposed, but when reason can’t take another step; faith keeps right on walking. If things are going to change, you need to change your environment, your company, and what you say. You only change by the places you go and the people you get around.
“God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us”. (Ephesians 3:20 MSG)
