SPRING FORTH NOW
I could go on and on, but I’ve run out of time. There are so many more—Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, the prophets. . . . Through acts of faith, they toppled kingdoms, made justice work, took the promises for themselves. They were protected from lions, fires, and sword thrusts, turned disadvantage to advantage, won battles, routed alien armies. Women received their loved ones back from the dead. There were those who, under torture, refused to give in and go free, preferring something better: resurrection. Others braved abuse and whips, and, yes, chains and dungeons. We have stories of those who were stoned, sawed in two, murdered in cold blood; stories of vagrants wandering the earth in animal skins, homeless, friendless, powerless—the world didn’t deserve them!—making their way as best they could on the cruel edges of the world. Not one of these people, even though their lives of faith were exemplary, got their hands on what was promised. God had a better plan for us: that their faith and our faith would come together to make one completed whole, their lives of faith not complete apart from ours.
Hebrews 11:32-40 (MSG)
No matter what you face, know that you have the power to overcome, Speak Over Your Life and put into motion that which will not only empower you but also motivate you to take the necessary action to win. The strategy applied to your eventual overcoming circumstances will often take the route of possibilities that may or may not get you to your outcomes, however, don’t get weary, stay alert, be available, and active for your opportunity. Seizing your opportunity paves the way for you to Breathe: New Life; inhaling and exhaling to bring about the necessary transformation to and for your circumstances. Believing in you is critical, thus, the inhaling of oxygen for the benefit of providing you with endless energy and boundless strength; feeding your organs so that you live well and whole, confident about what should be for your life. The exhaling of the toxicity makes room for the exceedingly, abundantly, more than from the inhaling of the oxygen; possibilities working in you. Remember, where you are, God has a better plan for you, take up your possibilities which leads to your opportunity for new life, even if that possibility does not work the way you plan, it is your vehicle to Breathe: New Life!
