Tired Of Wearing Yourself Out For No Reason?
Oh this one is going to be a wake up call.
And I pray that by the end of this blog post, you’ll be ready to focus more and more on your gifts and talents than ever before.
Side note: Don’t get upset at the messenger 🙂
These days many of us find ourselves exhausted and just completely worn down because we are trying to get ahead, but there is a price we are paying.
Can’t tell you how many times I’ve been burnt out and just did not want to take another step in life.
And often times this can happen for two reasons, either we are taking on too much or we are operating in the wrong gifts and talents, sailing down the undesigned path for our lives.
Have you ever felt like you just couldn’t get ahead in life?
Tired Of Wearing Yourself Out For No Reason?
Like you are busting your butt for certain things to come to fruition but yet you know in your spirit that it’s way out of your territory. And I’m not talking about following your dreams and just because you deal with opposition, you should give up. I’m talking about when you know in your spirit it’s time to call it quits.
You see…. many people want build big dreams. They want to make a lot of money, they want to have a nice home, nice cars, and nice vacations, but all of that comes with a price. There are sacrifices you will make in order to achieve these kind of goals.
But when you want to step out a build your God given vision, now you’re operating in a whole new territory.
It’s going to take a different focus than just focusing on making money or buying a dream home. It’s going to take you becoming equipped in your gifts and talents.
Here is what I see many people do, which is something that I did as well so I’m not judging.
Is they step into entrepreneurship desiring a greater life. Then they realize real quick that it’s a lot of work. And when they don’t make any money, the desire to build their dreams begins to fade. This is where God comes in and can give you a bigger vision than just money.
Let’s say we take agreement with this vision, and then we begin to look at what others are doing and think, “Yea…. I wanna do that” I want to have all those gifts and talents to operate in for God. I want to experience miracles, signs and wonders. I want to raise people from the dead.”
Which is ALL awesome.
To desire to do great things for God is a sign He is drawing you closer to Him. He wants you to desire these things, but not at the cost of operating in someone else’s talents. He wants you to operate in your gifts.
I remember when I first began to witness God’s power around me with other people, when I first came to Jesus. It was amazing and incredible. I just couldn’t believe my eye’s and what was going on in my spirit. It was exciting…however I was also a bit intimidated.
I would see highly anointed people of God just touch someone and they would fall over because the presence of God was so strong.
This completely blew my mind away and I just KNEW that I was called to do the same thing.
But along the journey of my personal path, I’ve made a lot of wrong turns. And it wasn’t because God wasn’t there with me, it was because I began to strive for things that were not destined for my calling.
I would deeply yearn for the power of God to work through me and He did many MANY times, but only at the level I was prepared in, at the moment.
God can operate through you, greater than your understanding for sure, but He doesn’t do it unless He knows you can handle it. And He also doesn’t want you to be a copycat of someone else, He wants you to be YOU!
He wants to set you apart and the only way He can set you apart is for you to focus on your strengths, talents, abilities, anointing, authority and power.
You see…. God doesn’t give you a title but He will anoint you to do great things for Him. Don’t think you have to have some super super power…. His spirit can come upon anyone.
You don’t need to focus on what someone else is doing. CELEBRATE others talents and abilities! Be grateful God is equipping them to do what they are called to do. Get excited that He draws each of us closer, so we can fulfill our part in the bigger picture.
We ALL have an ability, we ALL have a purpose and we ALL are equally loved by him.
He wants you to feel special. He wants to have an intimate relationship with Him. He loves knowing that there is a secret place just between you and Him, for you to get rest, to be filled up with His spirit and to kick some ass for heaven.
This is what makes Him so freaking phenominal!
We should never be jealous or bitter cause of how He blesses others! We should get excited that we all have gifts to operate in!
I don’t know about you but I’m getting fired up in my spirit just writing this out. I feel like preaching! lol!
So today is a reminder that you play a part in God’s heart.
He has something so special for you and you don’t need to strive or exhaust yourself to get there.
Tired Of Wearing Yourself Out For No Reason?
Are you tried of being jealous of other peoples gifts?
Are you tired of ignoring this little issue thinking it’s not affecting your day each day?
Are you tired of burn out and not knowing where it’s coming from?
Are you tired of focusing on other peoples gifts and talents wishing you had them, when God is saying, “Hey….I got your special talents right over here”
Then it’s time to go to God and ask for forgiveness.
And something really hit my spirit while writing this JUST NOW.
I heard….”Tell my people to stop worrying about the money and resources they need to build their dreams. My people need to continue to increase their skill sets, this is one way I set them apart in the marketplace. Tell them not to bow down to worry, stress, and money which leads to an ungrateful heart. Tell them to walk in who I’ve called them to be and I will give them rest”
That hit me hard.
So let me walk you through some steps with prayer so you can experience some freedom in your spirit.
1. Humble yourself before His throne of mercy and grace. And say, Heavenly Father….I humble myself before your throne of mercy and grace. Call upon the blood of Jesus that was shed at the cross to speak for you on your behalf.
2. (You speak) I ask that you forgive me for knowingly and unknowingly speaking death to my own gifts and talents while focusing too much on what others have. I ask for forgiveness for being ungrateful and striving myself to have what you have destined to others and not me. I ask for forgiveness for bowing down to money and stress. I ask for forgiveness for forcing myself into a “Title” that you did not call me to fulfill.
3. Ask for forgivesness for stepping into roles you do not have the authority to step into and taking on spiritual territory God did not call you to.
Let me speak on this for a moment so you understand.
Often times when we are being equipped by God early on in our walk, one person may pray over us or release a prophetic word. Then all of a sudden pride steps in unknowingly and we act like we know everything in the spiritual realm. We begin to call others and try to speak into them, operating in a role that we have no authority in yet.
Listen…. this can cause some major spiritual backlash and cause spiritual warfare for a long time until you repent.
God wants you to operate in your gifts and talents. And you need to be sure your are walking by His spirit and not in your own understanding. You have to be fully submissive in order for Him to work through you 100%.
And look…. we all make this mistake so don’t beat yourself up. For good measure ask for forgivesness and then ask Him to release a fresh anointing over you everytime you speak into someone else. If you still don’t have a full understanding of this, then don’t speak into others until you do.
Oh goodness…. another thing hit my spirit.
There are some of you reading this that still operate from things like astrology, numerology, crystals, stones, voodoo, reki, and any form of the metaphysical worship. I am going to be as clear as I can and please do your own research in the bible. But all of that is demonic. It is not from God. So if you are trying to operate with God and the metaphysical… you are not operating with heaven. You are operating with hell. And hell knows truth so your perception may still think you know what you are doing, but you don’t.
The real deal Holy Spirit is the ONLY way to operate.
The metaphysical world will completely deceive you, and if you continue to operate from that world, you will be defeated long term.
And don’t try to take this up with me, take this discussion to God. Ask Him to reveal the truth about the metaphysical world.
Daniel 2:27 – “Daniel answered the king and said, “No wise men, enchanters, magicians, or astrologers can show to the king the mystery that the king has asked”
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 – “There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you.”
Leviticus 20:27 – “A man or a woman who is a medium or a necromancer shall surely be put to death. They shall be stoned with stones; their blood shall be upon them.”
Deuteronomy 18:20-22 – “But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’ And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the Lord has not spoken?’— when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.”
Look this is not supposed to scare you…. our Father in Heaven reveals things in us so we can follow Him wholeheartedly and that we are not corrupted in our spirit. The Fear of The Lord is real but it will set you free not condemn.
This is not meant to condemn, this is meant to bring a word of knowledge so you can operate fully in your gifts from Him.
Trust me… I used to follow the metaphysical world and not just halfway…. I was all in. I spoke to mediums, astrologers and even became a great astrologer myself. But when I was delivered of the occult and witchcraft… I had never felt so free in my life.
And when the holy spirit began to operate fully in me…. I knew right away the difference. The real deal holy spirit is going to take you so much further in life than the metaphysical world.
Once again! WOW!
God wanted to speak in this blog post.
I didn’t see this subject coming up at all but His spirit took over.
So if you are exhausted and feel like you are striving to make things happen in your life. Take a look at a few angles.
Are you doing too much?
Are you operating in the wrong gifts, talents or path?
Are you still operating from the metaphysical world?
Cause if you are…then there will be a block between you and God.
And please know that many who read my blog have a deep relationship with God. So you understand what I’m speaking about when it comes to the metaphysical world. And there are also many of you who are seeking truth but have yet to be revealed the truth. So now is the time to ask the holy spirit if you have been operating from the wrong side. If you have, you will have to repent and ask for forgiveness.
4. Ask God to give you the REAL DEAL Holy Spirit to operate 100% with Him, His angels and Heaven! Trust me….. you will know the difference right away!
5. Or if you do not feel convicted about the metaphysical but you do feel a conviction about speaking into others in your own strength, seek forgiveness from The Lord.
And for good measure be sure you are not taking a word of knowledge someone gives you and then pretending you know how to operate in the holy spirit. If you feel you do have a word of knowledge for someone but yet are still unsure, seek wise council. Or ask for confirmation from God. He will show you or He will close a door so you don’t walk through it.
Then as your relationship grows with Him and as you spend more time with Him, you will begin to hear the holy spirit more and more and more and more. And it’s AWESOME 🙂
Please know that I believe in you and believe that if you are reading this, The Lord has called you to do great and mighty things.
He loves us and corrects us through encouragement, through love, and through the fear of The Lord.
You are so special to Him.
He wants you to know the truth so you operate fully in your gifts.
He wants you FREE!
You are called to be free!
You Can, You Will & You Must,
