Often we spend our time wanting to achieve certain outcomes in our lives. However, it can become frustrating when the very things you've hoped and dreamed about don't come to fruition. This short article is designed to help you break the cycles that may be holding you back from achieving your goals. Dreams and good intentions are no fun unless they come true and are fulfilled in real life.
Recently I was in England ministering at a Methodist Church in Sheffield. The leader of that group has the people soak for an hour to anointed worship before the speaker gets up to share. It had been a while since I had laid down on the floor and waited upon the Lord. At first I didn't think I would bother but then I thought why not? I found a nice little spot where I could just lie down and wait upon the Lord. I remember years ago spending many hours soaking to the Holy Spirit and to anointed music. The revival that occurred in Toronto under John and Carol Arnott taught us to soak in God's presence in order to hear his voice.
Here is an example of what the Lord is doing to make His bride ready for His return. If anyone knows of one who has a special needs child, they know of the stress that they go through which wears you down and causes you to become vulnerable to the enemy's attacks, and if that person also has areas of their life that need healing, they can become a prime target for the enemy. This revelation took place after I told the Lord that I wanted all that I could receive of having His presence during my time with Him before my day began. He immediately started to reveal to me this situation that the enemy set me up for so that I would have a wedge between Him and me where I would have a seed of distrust towards Him, which would greatly hinder me.
