Typical Reaction To Transition

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comWhat happens to most of us during transition?

  • Fear
  • Confusion
  • Uncertainty
  • Anxiety as our minds whirl and thousand miles a minute trying to conceive every kind of possible situation and the outcome.

What do we do when a transition is thrust upon us? When it wasn’t what we wanted, isn’t God’s will, or we are forced into change unwillingly?

Unforeseen and unwelcomed transitions such as divorce, fired, accident, illness.

What do we do?

Get with God.

Be raw. Be real. He can handle it. Tell Him you don’t like it. Be alone in prayer with God. Take walks and talk to Him. Get alone and tell Him you are afraid or you don’t understand and that you are at a loss of where to go next.

Be careful not to accuse God. God is our good father. And over my many years of faith life I’ve discovered that all the difficulty in my life has always come at the hands of the demonic. God never sets us up to hurt us but the devil will use everyone and anyone to further his work of destruction.

Read the Psalms. Read until you find the passage that is the cry of your heart. The verses that speak: “That’s my need. That’s my heart song.” Cry it out to God. It’s okay to tell Him you are angry but then ask His hand to begin the forgiveness process. Ask Him to heal you of your anger, disappointment. Ask him to stay close to you.

My brothers and sisters, in your greatest loss is something unexpected and utterly fantastic. It is an invitation. The devil is poised and waiting for you to turn away from God, accuse Him. OR in a difficult moment or season we can turn to God fully, tell Him we don’t understand. We can resolve the pain and loss with Him and reconcile to receive His peace.

Where you have your greatest loss is something hidden. What the enemy meant for evil is an invitation for your greatest victory. Because around the corner is the miraculous. It’s new levels of encounters, new levels of answered prayer and your authority over the very thing meant to harm you now becomes your conquered ground and you are then empowered to help others to become free! Hallelujah!

Loss is pain. It’s disappointment and fear but it’s also a divine invitation. It is the gateway to beginning to a new level of intimacy, new levels of anointing, it is the very path to holy ground of miraculous victory and the divine. It is your invitation into your destiny.

AMAZING. Thank you Jesus, that You redeem and restore all things. AMEN

Today, I will pray with purpose, power and belief, using the Word with conviction, confidence and finally with unfailing courage. I will not relent or give up or give in. I will stand for goodness, honesty, integrity, and truth. I will love lavishly and forgive easily. I will offer hope and a hand to those who I can help, and I will always and forever remain loyally in love with my Jesus.

This is my high and holy calling, and I will believe nothing less. In the name of Jesus. Amen and Hallelujah!!!

Shanah Tovah Umetukah 5778 (Hebrew) meaning "A Good and Sweet Year"

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comMy Dear Friend,

Repeat After Me:

  • I am a powerful child of God.
  • I am the head and not the tail.
  • I was created for greatness.
  • My destiny is to live in victory.
  • My destiny is to have the abundant life.
  • Today, I declare I am in transition from glory to glory and strength to strength. Hallelujah

Well Done! Let these words now move into truth in the spiritual realm and then be lived out in our physical life.

The entire church is in a GREAT transition. The awakening of the Body of Christ. And from what I am hearing almost all of us are transitioning from something that was a main part of our life to something new.

We are in the midst of a paradigm shift of massive consequence. Look at our political climate. A giant shift from a year ago. Our schools. Our churches. What I have come to realize is that often the people of God aren’t prepared for transition and struggle though one instead of live on top of them. And the devil is fully aware of this and uses confusion, fear and more to throw us off. Blame God, blame others and to discourage us to the point of giving up.

Am I right?

Let’s talk about Transitions in God’s timeline:

Rosh Hashanah through Yom Kippur.

  • God moves in His timeline. NEW YEAR. Rosh Hashanah typically falls somewhere in September or early October. This Year it falls on the evening of September 21 and 10 days later Yom Kippur the most solemn religious fast of the Jewish year, the last of the ten days of penitence that begin with Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) In This 10-day window I’m convinced a ton of things happen in the spiritual realm.
  • God takes an account.

Historically, the ancient Rabbis base their description of Rosh Hashanah on an analogy drawn from Roman military life. Just as a Roman commander reviews the troops who pass before him, so “on Rosh Hashanah all human being pass before [God] as troops, as it is said [in Psalms 33:15], ‘He who fashions the heart of them all, who discerns all their doings'” Seeing how they conduct themselves, the commander, like God, decrees each person’s fate. This is why in the Jewish faith Rosh Hashanah is typically a somber and sobering time.

Okay, so what does it look like for God to take an account? I can only share that I have experienced this cycle over and over and finally began to recognize how the truth of changes in my life align with God’s timetable.

Every September I find that things close out. I have experienced some difficult changes in September. Relationships end. For example, in my own life, interestingly, and not planned that way, my 11-year ministry partnership ended on September 1, 2017. This was unplanned but interesting how it came to close exactly on September 1. My husband was told he was going to be laid off in 2008. (This was a major transition for us). School starts, new relationships, new teachers, closing of old friendships, old familiar territory. 

Seasons of closing happen in September.

This is of course not always how all endings happen nor new beginnings, it’s just fascinating to me how MAJOR events of my life have transitions in this window, through September and October.

So, think about what has closed out in your life in years past in the month of September? You will be amazed to realize that this happens in your life and faith life.

Why?

Why do we experience a season of closing? Well we will answer that question in the next post. I feel as though God has given me insight into His timing in order that we might not be surprised but be prepared for all He is doing in our world, in our lives.

This feels like this scripture is applicable to my life in this area: It is God's privilege to conceal things and the king's privilege to discover them. —Proverbs 25:2

God hides things for those of us who are pressing in. It is His delight to reveal His Kingdom to His kids. How cool is that?

Stay tuned because this is GOOD! Hugs, Lynn

Prayer For the 2016 Election: Lynn Donovan

American FlagHoly Father, who is in Heaven, Jesus our Messiah and Holy Spirit who moves in our hearts and in our lives, we come before you in obedience and love. We seek Your perfect wisdom. Lord, we plead like Paul, in Ephesians 1:17 for the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation to know Your will for our country, for our future leaders and to help us to bring unity to Your Church and to our country.

Lord, You knew before time began whom You would appoint as our 45th president. You ordained that this person might be a tool of Your purposes, judgement and or mercy. We ask now that you would bring that person forward and fill them with Your Holy Spirit. We stand in prayer and faith that this person will be humble and submitted to Your Son, Jesus.

Father, right now we come against the powers of darkness, principalities, and rulers of evil. We stand as Your Children, given gifts and authority to cast down all arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. And we declare that this land, the United States of America, will be a nation dedicated to God. We pray you move with great power to defeat the powers of darkness. And we will pray the heavens open and place angels on assignment to defeat evil intentions, lies to the public and deceit. In the name of Jesus.

Lord, we seek your favor and turn from wickedness. We repent on behalf of our brothers and sisters in this country that have aligned themselves with selfish and evil motives. We repent for lies that spew forth from our televisions and in the public square. We beg your forgiveness. Lord, now we ask a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit to sweep across our land and change the atmosphere from division, fear, and hatred and then release love, healing and kinship. Lord, we ask that truth prevail, Your truth. In Jesus holy name.

Father, let your people rise and see their enormous importance to humble themselves and pray this very hour for Your hand of mercy and grace. Let us storm the heavens with petitions that move all of heaven and that defeat hell with finality.

Lord, defeat the devil’s schemes. Remind us to armor up daily and to walk in the Spirit of 2 Timothy 1:7. For you did not give us a spirit of fear but one of power love and sound mind. Grant us a supernatural mind to know exactly how and whom to vote. Lord, let us become warriors, bold and valiant, for Your Kingdom. Let us not shrink back from attacks of evil but rise up and share Your truth with a world that is blind, naked and dying.

Lord, let Your banner over us be love and kindness. You know who our next President will be. We ask that You would bless our county with a humble person who will seek Your face for wisdom as they guide us in the days ahead. Place a covering over this person and family. Place a covering over American and bring about Your perfect plans for this Nation.

We pray all this in the name above all names, Jesus. Christ.

Why Am I Experiencing So Many Difficulties?

In the past couple of months, I’ve noticed something interesting occurring within Kingdom people. Many of God’s kids, who are growing in their faith, serving and even running ministries are being bombarded by troubles.

Oh trouble, trouble, trouble.
Go away!

WHY?

In our crazy and frantic and busy lives we don’t often contemplate how the enemy would like to destroy us. And how the demonic uses trouble to do so. We are just too busy and slow to recognize that things are running a muck. The car breaks down, our kids are in the midst of enormous struggles, our marriage peace is uneasy, we become ill, and we will drop our perspective. And finally begin to wonder, God, where are you?

Let me share some insight I pray will raise your awareness and compel you to dawn your armor and get back to basics.

Dawn armor of Ephesians 6 and return to the Word and to prayer. It’s always our best offense to be in strong relationship with our Father in heaven, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

This my retelling from a book I’m currently devouring, Defeating Dark Angels, by Charles Kraft. The particular chapter I’m perusing asserts that demons are involved in every kind of disruption. And they target, specifically, believers.

They are intent in destroying and tormenting believers so they don’t pray, doesn’t seek God, so that they will fall away from Him and be like the rest of them (lost)…

The demonic realm is purposeful to work in the mind. They inhabit unclean thoughts and create confusion. The speak falsehoods that throw believers into doubt, fear, anxiety and host of other dark emotions.

However… Tada!!

God in his brilliant rescue gave us the most powerful passage to defeat the demonic realm and specifically strongholds in our lives where they wield influence and power.

It is true, we live in a body of flesh. But we do not fight like people of the world. 4 We do not use those things to fight with that the world uses. We use the things God gives to fight with and they have power. Those things God gives to fight with destroy the strong-places of the devil. 5 We break down every thought and proud thing that puts itself up against the wisdom of God. We take hold of every thought and make it obey Christ. —2 Corinthians 10: 3-5

This passage has taken on new life in my world. And a stronghold is being defeated as I take my temptations that – now get this – that begin in my mind. I take them captive and command them to go to Jesus.

Today, I pass along this empowerment through the Word of God. Literally say out loud, “I take that thought captive to Christ.”

The enemy hordes must obey when you remain persistent and consistent over time. And then the disruptions in your life calm as you move further into the atmosphere of heaven; peace, joy and righteousness.

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. —Romans 14:17

I release victory over you today and stand in faith with you to be MORE THAN CONQUERORS!!!  Hallelujah.

Let me know if you are struggling in this area, I will pray for you. I love you my family of the Kingdom of God. Have a victorious day in His Presence. Hugs, Lynn
