God is preparing overcomers – confident, bold, brave and mature children of God who fully manifest His love and will upon the earth. But many Believers are not experiencing this overcoming, abundant life, but instead are deeply wearied and discouraged.
Following are the three simple steps out of darkness and despair to advance toward the victorious life of an overcomer.
First: SEEK, ASK, AND KNOCK
We must ask for and seek God's guidance and divine light – for if we ask, we shall receive! As we seek, we shall surely find, as surely as the sun rises in the morning.
"Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart." - Jeremiah 29:12-13
God is faithful to His Word and generous beyond what anyone can imagine!
We must constantly seek to understand what God wants us to become -- His purpose for our life.
"Matthew 7:8 AMP - "For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, the door will be opened."
What God has made us places upon us an obligation to fulfill the purpose for which we were formed.
The "sound" of our Christ calling should be nothing less than the driving force behind how we live our entire life.
"Now you belong to Him who was raised from the dead in order that we might be useful in the service of God." - Romans 7:4
Second: SEEK REVELATION OF HIS WORD
Genesis 1:26 - "Let Us make man in Our image, to be like Ourselves; let man have dominion....over all the earth."
It has always been the Lord's intent to have a "people" who would have dominion authority on the earth.
The word "dominion" (Hebrew - radah) means to prevail, rule, reign, to tread down."
Through Jesus Christ we have been given authority over the enemy and all that he would try to come against us with. The word AUTHORITY means LEGAL OR RIGHTFUL POWER, A RIGHT TO COMMAND OR ACT.
"Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall hurt you." - Luke 10:19
We can’t remain satisfied and contented with our lack of power and spiritual authority; a cry of desperation must burst forth. “Enough is enough!”
This holy hunger will drive us to seek the Lord on a much more increased level. Jesus states “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, uprightness, and right standing with God, shall be completely satisfied!" - Matthew 5:6 AMP
It is time for us to truly understand what Jesus has restored to us through the Cross, and step into the fullness of that relationship, and have a great impact in the earth. It is time for us to occupy our Kingdom authority so that we can occupy the earth and make it as it is in Heaven!
Third: CHRIST IS WISDOM
We must fully believe and act on the promise of James 1:5 (Amplified Bible): "If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him."
Asking is the key: we "have not" because we "ask not" (James 4:2). If you feel weary and discouraged, in need of wisdom and direction, simply ask for God's grace and guidance.
As we seek His PURPOSE FOR OUR LIFE and not just the benefits of "His hand," we will find that the more we know Abba Father, the more we will be deeper in love with Him and His family!
What does God require of us to obtain this wisdom? The pathway to true wisdom is not a process, pattern or method – wisdom is a Person, Christ Jesus (John 8:12).
The light and wisdom we seek from above are not to be found in human programs of education and psychology, or even in our common sense and good intentions, but only, exclusively, in the Person of Christ Jesus. "He has been made unto us wisdom." - 1 Corinthians 1:30. Indeed, "we have the mind of Christ" -1 Corinthians 2:16.
We create spiritual disorder when we insist upon our own plans and agendas and fail to embrace His.
"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." - Revelation 3:20
Each of us has a promised land for our lives. God's promises in His word are key to us entering into the vision that God has given us. If you are in a desert God is ready to take you out! Time to move on from eating manna to eating the food that God freely gives in the promised land of your DESTINY!
