But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
I Corinthians 2:9-15
These are the times that try our souls, it appears that people, places, and things of our experiences do not care and are careless and cold, however, if to God’s Word, we can remain true, Embrace His promises, if we make one step, God will make two. These words ring true for those of us who believe God and His promises yet struggle, externally and internally, to believe, have faith in God’s promises and act accordingly. The times of our lives are pressure mechanisms that will either cause us to buckle under the challenges or squeeze out our anointing, God’s chosen-ness for our lives and experiences, in order to produce His life and life more abundantly. The difference between allowing life’s challenges to cause us to buckle, submit to them or live in God’s promises for our lives, is our choice to operate in our anointing. God has promised that no matter what it looks like, He has a plan and purpose and what He has declared, spoken, prepared beforehand is ours and will be accomplished according to His Word; exceedingly abundantly, more than we can ever ask or think by the power working within us. The Spirit of God that resides within each of us as His creation must be activated, despite and in spite of our times, the challenges of our lives. Catch The Wind of God’s Spirit and navigate your experiences, seeing and using them as tools of preparation to live in God’s promises, although the times are “mean-times,” it is only a process to the promises of God that is not to hurt or harm you but instead prosper you. As we Catch The Wind of God’s Spirit, we view our challenges for what they are, God’s opportunity to empower us from within, squeeze out our anointing to destroy our burdens and yokes. Your challenges are opportunities to discern God and His anointing upon your life, view them through that lens and His Word will accomplish what He intends, you will overcome and inherit all things!
