You’re not going backward; you’re going forward!

“Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God.” Hebrews 6:1

It’s a new season, my sister, and it’s a new day! God is putting the wind back in your sails. He is showing you that nothing can stop you, and no one can hinder you when God is on your side. Those old fears will not work this time. You’re in a new place in God, and it’s time to receive His grace to continue your progress in Him. If you made it this far, you could go on! Go further than your mother did! Go further than your grandmother did! Go further, my sister! You have everything you need to fulfill God’s divine purpose for your life. It’s all in you! Instead of running from problems, watch God help you face them head on. Instead of caving under pressure, watch God help you stand on His truth. Anything that held you back before will not work this time. You’re not going backward; you’re going forward!

Declare this from your heart today: “God is with me and He is for me! I am not looking back. I am moving forward in Jesus! It’s a new season for me, and it’s a new day. God’s face is shining on me, and His grace is with me. I am a woman with a vision, I am a woman on a mission, and I am a woman with a purpose. God is building me into a kingdom woman, and I am totally surrendered to Him. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

The Lord is Your Shield

“But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high” Psalms 3:3, NIV.

The Lord is our shield. He’s our impenetrable shield. He protects us and covers us. He shelters us and we are hidden in Christ. We are hiding in His shield, not to hide in fear from the enemy, but we are hiding in His shield so that we can advance God’s kingdom and make forward steps into fulfilling His purpose for our lives. I want to encourage you today to know that no attempt from the enemy will prosper in your life. Anything he tries to do to harm you will not work. He will not be able to derail God’s plans for your life. Anything God wants to do in, around and through you will be accomplished. It is God working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight.

Be comforted today in knowing that God knows exactly what He’s doing. He’s allowing whatever He’s allowing for a divine reason, and it is all going to work out according to His divine plan. In the end, you win. In the end, you are victorious through Jesus. So no matter what you are facing right now. No matter what the enemy is trying to do, it will be a failed attempt because it is God who gives you the victory through Jesus and it is God who causes you to be triumphant through Christ.

Prayer: Hallelujah! Thank you, Lord! I am victorious through Jesus. I hide in your protective shield, not in fear, but in faith. I cover myself with Christ, and I declare that I will move forward into the divine purpose and plan you have for me. Thank you, Lord, that no weapon formed against me will prosper. Thank you that you’ve given me the victory in every area of life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
