“As I’m so often reminded what a priceless gift my life is, I ache with everything in me to make it count, so that when I finally cross the finish line, I’ll hear the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”—Adam Young (Owl City)
I’m not quite sure who. But I have the overwhelming feeling that this if for someone here, so i’m just going to leave it here and rely on God for the rest.
Tonight, God showed me a picture of a balloon. One red balloon, floating high above the clouds and continuing up, up, and away. Nothing to weigh it down, to keep in on Earth. That is exactly how God wants us to be. He has already broken the chains that hold us to this world, lifted the things that weigh us down. But we buy into the things that keep us feeling heavy.
the L I E S.
Every struggle, every addiction, every obsessive thought and action. We need to see these as they really are; illusions from the enemy, who does not want us to reach our full potnetial in Christ.
But God has other plans for us. And He spoke to me so clearly about that tonight.
“I’m going to cause you to be one who is like a lantern to many people, full of the oil and the annointing of God, full of the presence of God…I’m going to use you to be one that speaks words of hope…that leads people unto their Savior…I’m going to use you as a worshipper in my house…I’m going to cause you to have healing flow from your hands concerning those who have been disappointed and those who have been wounded and those that have been broken…I’m going to cause you to have an anointing to be a strength and a word of life and bring light unto those that are in darkness and those that have been wounded and broken…I’m going to cause you to be one who is successful in both the natural and the spiritual. I’m going to cause your words to have influence…I will situate you in a place where people will begin to notice that there is something different about you…I would have you to know that I have a plan for you even in your future adventures in the Kingdom of the Lord…there will be seasons and doors that I will open up to you…you will say Lord could it be? and I will use you in the realm of worship, there’s an anointing…you’re going to bloom in the things of the Lord and there’s going to come a greater confidence and a greater expression of all that you have inside you…I have a plan for you and for your future.. you shall not walk alone, I have a plan. You need to trust me…and you’re going to stand with new strength, you’re going to stand in new courage, you’re going to accomplish things and finish things that you thought you never could. matter of fact, you’re really beneath your potential. even what you’re trying to do right now and what you’ve planned to do, it’s beneath your potential. There’s so much more in you, child, and so much more the Lord wants to do with you…you’re not going to fail, you’re going to succeed. You believe the word of the Lord, and you’re going to see the good things of God come to pass for you…”
