Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon; Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them; Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not diminished. And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.
The situation before you is God’s invitation for you to walk worthy in the opportunity to discover, and build out your well-lived and joy filled life promised. No matter how difficult or impossible the situation is, it is your invitation to access and receive you life and life more abundantly by absolving the difficulty and impossibly and turning it into your stepping stone. God has empowered you through His deposits within you coupled with your willingness, faith to diligently believe as Co-Creator with God you have the victory as His witness, representative, working it out for the good. It is up to you and me to see each and every one of our experiences as the opportunity to subdue; exercise our gifts fully in the situation, working with God to accomplish His purpose and plan. You and I have been given all power and authority to go forward to accomplish what God has declared and it is God’s responsibility and honor to bring to pass that which He has declared through you. As you go forward to subdue, despite your circumstances, you stretch forward in the possibilities and opportunities God has ordained, bringing forth your innate abilities and God’s power to accomplish that which He intends through you as Co-Creator. Occupy Your Promise by working with God and subduing that which is before you, stretching you and your abilities to your peace, shalom, harmony with the will of God that produces life and life more abundantly!
