How do you see yourself in the race set before you?
Do you see yourself stuck in the muddy waters of despair?
Do you see yourself trained and prepared for whatever lies ahead?
How will you stay on track?
Is lack or fear of lack dominating your decisions and keeping you from moving on to fulfill your purpose and call?
Are you looking back, always in regret for every mistake or are you forgetting the past and reaching for the best that lies ahead?
Do you really believe the best is right before you or are you being distracted with the lies of the enemy that thrives on the painting a picture in your mind that causes you to scream, “I can’t!“?
I urge you today to stop, look and listen to what The LORD is saying as we silence all the voices of self and the enemy and be still in His presence, knowing He is the ENABLER and the STRENGTH of your HEART.
My Singaporean pastor once told me he asked The LORD, “If the God we serve is an all powerful and all providing God, why should The Church walk in lack?”
He then was sharing with me that He can testify to the world…. that “My God is Able!”
I think back on those days in my life when I had nothing but a one way ticket to Hawaii to do a Discipleship Training School with Youth with a Mission and I had the promise of 3 or 4 people who would support me.
I had an insurance policy coming from my grandmother’s death to me for $1000.00 and that would help pay for my school.
The LORD provided one day at a time, and when it was time for outreach, several students in my school who were not going on the outreach gave me enough money to get my ticket for the trip.
At the end of my outreach, The LORD said, do not return to Hawaii, but go back to Singapore and serve at the YWAM base.
Again, someone else gave me the money to change my return flight to Hawaii, and even traveled with me, since this faith ‘one day at a time’ was all new to me.
So by His Grace, I returned to Singapore to follow The LORD’s Plan.
I visited His Sanctuary Services Church where I met Apostle Prophet Pastor Roderick Tay, and I can truly say, God used that man to change the course of my life forever.
He was the man God used to pass a Prophet mantle to me, but even more than that He impacted my life with His teachings on how to run my race set before me.
The first scripture written on my heart in that time was Ephesians 3:20-21 which was the guideline He began to live out before me.
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21 NKJV.
The revelation of ‘My God is Able’ was the foundation The LORD laid in my life in order to wholly trust Him with my whole heart to carry out the vows I made as an End-time Handmaiden to serve Him when and where He sent me.
So as I pose that question, “How do you see yourself finishing the race set before you?’” — I hear The LORD say, ‘Tell My People, how they ‘see’ their race, will determine how they finish the race!
I AM posing this one question now, because this is a time like no other time, when fear and deception have caused many to want to drop out of the race.
It is indeed a time when I AM enabling My People to hold fast to My Enabling Hand, and trust Me with their whole heart.
As you trust Me in this time of great shaking and cleansing, I AM surrounding you with angelic hosts, and I AM placing your feet on solid ground.
This is not a time to give up, but a time to give in to The One Who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you can ask or think according to the power that works in you,” says the One True God.
“Get used to waiting on Me to receive strength and endurance for this end-time journey.
Put pressure on the pressure of your emotions, and watch Me develop a steady spirit of perseverance to finish well.
So, again I say, ‘Be still, as you seek My Face to show you your heart. Together, we will take care of all the issues that would come to trouble you, stop you, and keep you in fear, as you fix your focus on The Finish Line, and on Me, to give you a single eye that will enable your whole body to be full of light.
I AM shining a Light in the dark places of your soul that you make step quickly into the path of Righteous, Peace and Joy for the race that is set before you,” says The LORD.
“Yes, the one thing you must do in this hour of turmoil is ‘see yourself as I see you’. for you are more than a conqueror.
The test and trials of these times are not what determines your path, or your race.
Never allow your feelings to deter you from your purpose. Only you can stop relying on the flesh.
So beloved, run with passion into My Abundance, so that you may reach your divine purpose and press into the compelling force of that focus, forgetting the past and keeping your heart with all diligence to win the prize,” says the Father.
“Life is not without obstacles or challenges, but throw off all the hindering spirits and avoid any sin of entanglement that the enemy sends to trip you up or stop you in your tracks.
You are more than a conqueror, and this is the hour of great Empowerment!
“I admit that I haven’t yet acquired the absolute fullness that I/m pursuing, but I run with passion into his abundance so that I many reach the purpose for which Christ Jesus laid hold of me to make me his own. I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however, I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead. I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory prize through the anointing of Jesus. So let all who are fully mature have this same passion and if anyone is not gripped by these desires, God will reveal it to them. And let us all advance together to reach this victory prize, following one path with one passion.” Philippians 3:12-16
“I AM here to encourage you to stay on the right track and keep going, for I AM with you, I AM for you, I AM above you, I AM in you, and never forget, I AM surrounding, you just as it says in My Word!
Your wholehearted trust in Me,” says The One who is Trustworthy, “is your key to endurance.
I AM with you until the end. Your Faith in me fills you with My Peace, and no weapon formed against you can prosper.
Take up your Shield of Faith and press on you finish your race. Pace yourself and breathe in the very breath of life that will assure the fullness of life in Me.”
“Those who trust in The LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken, but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so The LORD surrounds His people both now and forevernore. The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous, for then the righteous for then the righteous might use their hands to do evil. Lord, do good to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart. But those who turn to crooked ways The LORD will banish with the evildoer. Peace be on Israel.” Psalm 125:1–5
