The opinion of people concerning you is usually contradictory to God’s position. When the world feels that you are down and out, that is when God is planning an epic bounce back for you that will eclipse everything of precedence around you. If people understood every intricacy of your life and can predict every move with precision, where would the miracle be? God’s will is often shrouded in mystery that can only be unraveled through obedience. God will use your obedience to unlock generational blessings that will set the tone for the next wave of the spirit of God concerning miracles, signs and wonders, revival and supernatural prosperity. Make this bold declaration: I am God’s workmanship and the instrument of the revelation of His will to my generation. Through my testimony, the unbelieving world will come to acknowledge that God still rules in the affairs of men.
When Nehemiah was on assignment to rebuild the broken walls of Jerusalem, the reaction of those who were watching and observing the project in the natural was that of mockery. They disdained him and made efforts to demoralize him and his team.
When Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, he became angry and was greatly incensed. He ridiculed the Jews, 2 and in the presence of his associates and the army of Samaria, he said, “What are those feeble Jews doing? Will they restore their wall? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they finish in a day? Can they bring the stones back to life from those heaps of rubble—burned as they are?” 3 Then Tobiah the Ammonite, who was at his side, said, “What they are building—even a fox climbing up on it would break down their wall of stones!” (Nehemiah 4:1-3)
GOD WILL TURN THE RIDICULE TO MIRACLE
God is an expert at using ridicule as raw materials to produce miracles. It’s one thing for the world to have false impressions about you and your assignment. But no matter what they imagine, what matters is what you believe and see for yourself through the prophetic lens of the Spirit. Only the report of the Lord is permitted to take preeminence in your life.
Make this bold declaration, Lord, by the reason of your miracle in my life, prove the doubters wrong. Let the world know that your mark of favour is upon me in Jesus Christ Mighty Name. I profess by faith that the evil expectation of the wicked concerning God’s assignment for my life is hereby abolished and demolished in the Name of Jesus Christ.
DON’T RESPOND TO THE OPINION OF MEN, SPEAK ONLY TO GOD.
When the world hurls accusations at you, when the tongue of naysayers wags and you feel so much pressure. The natural thing to do is respond back and try to defend your position and integrity – no one enjoys looking like a fool or being redundant, but that is not the winning strategy of the Spirit. God wants you to hold your peace and experience His salvation. Exodus 14:13.
When opposition rose up against Nehemiah and deep conspiracies were organized against him, he did not speak one word to his adversaries; rather, he spoke to God.
4 Hear us, our God, for we are despised. Turn their insults back on their own heads. Give them over as plunder in a land of captivity. 5 Do not cover up their guilt or blot out their sins from your sight, for they have thrown insults in the face of the builders.Nehemiah 4:4-5
The enemy wants you to be consumed by the drama associated with getting caught in the rollercoaster of petty people. It doesn’t always end with one line of conversation. If you respond back to their accusations and condemnations, then they, in turn, will feel like, “Oh, we got to him or her” and then they will send more slanderous words and once you open that line of communication, it’s hard to stop; it becomes a big distraction that will drain your strength and consume your time. You are an eagle and when the world goes low, you go high. Don’t allow the world to drag you down. Stay in your God element; that is where your power and victory are. Regardless of the onslaught that the enemy might hurl against you or the efforts of people who allow themselves to be used by the enemy as instruments to try to block you; the truth is, God’s people are anointed to win – the seed of God can never die.
Make this bold declaration: I can never fail, I can never fall, I can never falter. I am anointed to win. Let all the roadblocks of the enemy become stepping stones for me to climb high to my place of anointed destiny in the Name of Jesus Christ.
When it’s all said and done, God will answer for you. The God-kind of good success will be your answer to the ridicules of the haters. The Spirit of the Lord says, “It’s time for God to bring answers to the complex questions in your life. It’s time for tongue locking miracles which the world cannot gainsay or trivialize to happen in your life in Jesus’ Name”.
This season has been declared as “The Year of Your Life.” You are in a covenant walk with God this year to make 2022 your year of distinction and the line of demarcation between your past and your future in the Name of Jesus Christ. You will not be tired, you will not walk in confusion or derision. You now have the mind of Christ. You have the capacity and capability to do extraordinary things for God. It’s time, says the Spirit of God.
RISE UP AND BUILD
Nehemiah moved in wisdom and strength and devoted himself completely to building the broken walls of Jerusalem.
6 So we rebuilt the wall till all of it reached half its height, for the people worked with all their heart.Nehemiah 4:6
Yes, that’s the assignment. Do not grumble. Do not complain. Do not waste one hour meandering. Rise up and build now. Build your assignment one day at a time. Work at the marriage, build it. Build the ministry. Build the business. Commit yourself to putting one stone upon the other, until you see the glory rise. Let them talk, let them gossip. You just build. Praise God. You are in partnership with God Who is the ultimate builder.
For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything (Hebrews 3:4).Hebrews 3:4
THIS IS YOUR SEASON OF OPEN
The Lord has gone ahead of you to subdue mountains and open the two-leaved gates. All He is asking you to do is lock your hands into His hands because this project that you and the Father are building will move at supernatural speed. It will mesmerize the world. So don’t keep the Father waiting, He is standing right now at the construction site and angels are on high alert to help you complete the work. So step in and build to the glory of God.
Make this bold declaration: “I receive the anointing of a finisher. The great things that I have laid my hands upon shall be completed and perfected to the glory of God. I will not miss the seasons of my life. I rise in power and receive the Help of the Holy Spirit and the ministry of angels. God’s favor will be my rear guard and His mercy my resource in Jesus’ Name. No more shame, no more wasted years. No more dreams and potentials that are not fulfilled. This is the season to build and shift the trajectory of Nations for Jesus Christ ”.
I love you, Shalom
