One more component of a Godly transition: ENEMY OPPOSITION. Following a weird and closing season of September, then stepping into new fantastic assignment in October then led to full on warfare every November.
November would bring with it traumatic and dramatic events into my personal life. I would experience changes in my relationships, sin, or some kind of event that at times would send me reeling. I could be incapacitate for months as I would try to climb out of the pit or out from under the attack of the enemy.
Example: I faced down a recurring addiction in November of 2007, my husband, did in fact, lose his job. That season was upheaval on steroids. Every November something difficult would rise up. I became so aware of the impending trauma around the corner that I wrote a note in my Daily Bible to begin praying against it.
Many years ago, I remember that I asked a woman in my Bible study who was wiser and more mature than me as to why this was happening. She said perhaps the question isn’t why. But to pray: Lord, make be able to endure.
A few years ago, God said, FORGET THAT. You don’t have to endure the bashing of the enemy. Start renouncing its power over you. Do not come into agreement that you will be assaulted. Take up my power and shield and command opposition away from your life and those you love.
WOW, THAT STRATEGY WORKED!
Transitions will occur at any time of the year, but I ask you to step into awareness because God gives fantastic assignments to His people in this season and you will be fully prepared to walk into them in victory!
Next week: Typical responses to transitions and how to process change with the Lord!
Love you... Live boldly! Live with Hope! Expect Great changes this month! Woo Hoo, Hugs, Lynn
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!!!
