It’s normal and quite standard that towards the beginning of the year, millions of people begin to make the new year, new me, or new things to do for this year’s resolutions.
During this fresh season, I want to challenge you to make a very important decision, and not to take it likely.
If you aren’t already, it’s time to use whatever you ALREADY have, and get to work. I encourage you not to allow any excuses to creep up in your mind and keep you from pursuing your dreams, goals and ultimately your destiny. You have so much purpose in you and this time, this year, you cannot let opposition or circumstances, or obstacles come between what you were destined for. Many times we are excited, pumped up, and ready to do or be something spectacular. Yet, suddenly, there’s an unexpected roadblock. You may have become stagnant or discouraged. Maybe because you feel you don’t have enough resources or money or people to help you. There may not be enough cash flow, or there’s an enormous bill or payment to be made, or a load of paperwork and documents to be filled out that you’re not even sure how to do. Sometimes there may even be a sickness that keeps you unable to complete your tasks.
Could it also be that you just don’t have enough free time? Think of those unforeseen things or hindrances that have come into your life. Write them down right now. What is it that is keeping you from pursuing your dreams and purpose? Now I want you to look at that piece of paper that represents nothing but lies and ball it up, stomp on it and throw it vigorously in the trash! Yell at it! Scream and be aggressive with it! Do what you must and make a vow to yourself that THIS year… that or those things WILL not keep you from accomplishing what you were destined for!!!
I believe the truth is that you can still MOVE FORWARD towards your destiny by using what you have in your hand and going around or stepping over any roadblocks or hindrances that have gotten in your way.
If our Almighty God gave you an idea, an assignment, a dream, or desire, than you have a purpose to fulfill regardless of your circumstances. And there is no purpose that cannot be fulfilled without God giving you the provision and power to see it come to pass. If he gave it to you, then He will very well give you the resources, the strength and everything you need.
Activate your faith, take that step, or even leap and get to work. Remember, faith without works is dead.
You might have a book you’d like published, or a CD or movie to be produced, or even a business idea. Everybody has some type of trouble or obstacle to overcome in their life in some shape or fashion, but it’s those “Keep moving no matter” people that become successful. I think of James Cameron or Oprah Winfrey, TD Jakes, Joyce Meyers, and the list goes on. There are great successful people, but they are still just people like you and me. They may not have had the ALL the money or everything they needed to get started but they kept moving forward. Joyce Meyers for example has an awesome ministry with millions of followers, but she spoke about how in the beginning she had a bible study in her home with just a small group of people. Tyler Perry, the great producer, actor and director at one point was homeless sleeping in his car, but he kept writing his screen plays.
Nothing could stop them and in that same way, nothing should or will stop you ever again.
You have everything you need to accomplish the work. Just keep moving forward. Most of people’s reasons or excuses for not moving forward is because…”I don’t have enough money.” Well, that is just pure crap. There is still SOMETHING you can be doing to move forward in your goals, even without money. Find it, figure it out and use what you got!!
You will have to do your part. When the Lord told me to start speaking on specific topics and sharing them on YouTube, at first I was like…o.k, but don’t I need a certain kind of camera, special lighting, backdrop, etc? Then the spirit quickly said no. For now, use what you have right now. You have a camera on your tablet, your electricity is on and you have a room with four walls, now go and speak! Then, as you obey and take those steps of faith, I will continue to progress you and provide the rest for improvement.
I would recommend that you write a list of what you have to work with and then a list of what you want as you continue to move forward. With your persistence I guaranteed that God will make a way.
God gave Moses a task, but Moses still had to walk in faith and complete the task. All the greats in the Bible and even in our society had to overcome obstacles and no matter how much money you need, or whatever resources, God will provide and has provided. Use what you have in your hand.
There are special people that you may or may not have sensed in your life. People were created to need one another. Have you ever heard, “It’s not what you know but WHO you know.” Of course it is important to know things and to study to show your self-approved, however, there is special favor you will receive when you can honor people and make connections and relationships with others. You never know who made hold a key to your success in different areas of your life. My pastor once told me that you are probably 1-2 people away from meeting the president. He was right. I knew a person in our church that has a connection to the president if I ever wanted to meet him. But without making connections or appreciating them how can you see the blessing or even be a blessing to others.
I have been blessed with many divine connections and relationships. Many times I was able to bless people with information or wisdom or even a gift, and some people blessed me with a simple but powerful and much needed prophetic word. You don’t always know how God will use you or others in your life, but just stay opened to the opportunities.
God has given you all that you need for this present moment. All you have to do is say yes to the call and move forward, THEN you will see even more manifestation for you to fulfill that call, or dream, or goal.
Use what you got and pursue your purpose! Now is your time!
