Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean. Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.
For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money. For thus saith the Lord God, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause. Now therefore, what have I here, saith the Lord, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith the Lord; and my name continually every day is blasphemed. Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion. Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem. The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
Transforming Spaces does not have to be a struggle or overran with grief, keep before you that which should be for your life promised by God and be glad and rejoice. The former things of your life only seem big and constant because you continue to give air to them squeezing out any possibility for the new. Release the old and embrace and receive the new. In embracing and receiving the new, you counteract the power of the routine and the status quo by squeezing out that which no longer has relevance or should have relevance in your life. Experiences have come to equip and prepare you but have not come to stay or to harm you. The prospering for what is, is purposed for you to receive the benefit of it and move on. Whatever you are experiencing, going through is that which you are simply passing through, gain that which benefits and leverage it for that which is becoming, the building out of your well-lived and joy filled life. Travel light not allowing the process of life to hinder or park you but instead as a launching pad to the promises of God fully revealed and manifested in your life. Continue to speak and act in your life as though what should be is and you will rapidly advance into your promise of life and life more abundantly, Occupying Your Promise. God is with you and the speed provided by God’s Spirit allows you to move through in order to get to your life and life more abundantly as promised by God.
