Time to press the reset button?

These are strange days aren't they... so many of the things we take for granted aren't possible right now. Lots of things have changed very suddenly.

We're in a situation we've never faced before... but for the last 10 or 15 years, God has been telling us in different ways, through different people, that a time like this was coming and He's been telling us to get ready, He's been telling us to prepare ourselves.

BUT the kind of preparation He's been talking about isn't so much about storing things up, it's more about preparing our hearts so that we can respond with assurance and faith.

Not giving in to fear, loving generously, being a safe place and a lending a helping hand in times of need.

We're experiencing an unprecedented situation with little notice, and technology means that we have real time updates... That's very disturbing for some people.

We've been plunged into turmoil, restriction of freedoms, and great uncertainty.

That level of uncertainty leads to anxiety and confusion; people can't predict what's going to happen and a constant stream of news isn't helping. You can feel the fear and see it in people's faces and in their reactions.

So what's our responsibility in this?

We need to press into God, take hold of His word and make it a reality in our life... and be part of the solution to the problem rather than adding to the problem.

Take time to refuel your spiritual tanks. If you're struggling to respond with faith and be optimistic, ask God to help you.

We have an unparalleled opportunity to be a safe place, a rock in the harbour for people who need hope, and support, and help, and encouragement, and inspiration.

This situation is no surprise to God, it really isn't, like Esther, we’re here for such time as this.

God's got your back, He really has, so rise up and BE who you're called to be and DO what you're called to do.

We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and what we say, the words we speak in the middle of the tests we face.

What have you been saying, is it helping or is it hindering?

Are you agreeing with what God says, or are you agreeing with what you've allowed to come into your heart through your ears from a constant diet of negativity and fear? Through the news, and people who are frightened and worried?

We do need to know what's going on but we don't need to expose ourselves to constant bulletins through the day, we can limit our exposure to news to small doses and make sure our main diet is from what God's saying through His word and to us personally.

I encourage you to be intentional about taking thoughts captive and stop letting what you do be driven by anxiety and fear.

We were created for times like this... Part of our destiny is to be a light in the darkness, to bring peace in the storm, to bring hope, and exercise faith in a sea of doubt... To be established and rooted in the Kingdom rather than in the things of this world...

Our eyes and affections need to be set on the things above, not on the things of this earth.

God is using this time to show us the condition of our heart, to show us where we're not doing as well as we thought we were, where we're lacking, where we don't measure up... so we can do something about it and realign with Him and His ways.

I encourage you to pursue God with all your heart and make sure you're rooted and established in His Kingdom, speaking what He's saying, and doing His works.

Remember the law of sowing and reaping... Make sure you're sowing good things into good soil... And sow liberally.

Everything you do, everything you say, everything you think about, the things you look at, the things you listen to, will affect the atmosphere and affect the course of your life.

So, make sure what you're feeding your mind on is life giving.

This situation is giving us an opportunity to press a reset button... an opportunity to do some things differently as we respond to God's nudges to make much needed adjustments.

What if all this upheaval were a blessing in disguise depending on how you respond?

  • What's God saying to you?
  • What's your responsibility in this?
  • Where are the opportunities?

There might be doors that are no longer open for you because of the way we need to live our lives at the moment.

But maybe new doors are opening. Beware of holding on so tightly to what's familiar that you don't see the new doors and take the opportunity to walk through them.

If something isn't working, or if it isn't working as well as it did before, then either stop doing it, or find new ways of doing it. You'll find lots of keys to help you with that here Keys To Breakthrough

Blessings to persevere, and overcome and live life fulfilled.



P.S. I encourage you to seriously consider equipping yourself with powerful coaching strategies.

Why? Because they

  • Transform the way you have everyday conversations.
  • Help you to deepen your relationship with God as you stop and reflect and invite Him to show you what He's highlighting and what He wants you to see.
  • Lead you to a whole new world of breakthrough for yourself and other people.
  • Open your eyes to things you haven't seen before.

NOBODY who does this training stays the same. Everybody is transformed from the inside out as they apply what they're learning to their own lives and use the coaching skills they learn in every day situations.

Seriously consider taking a leap of faith and joining us. God has gathered an amazing community of wonderful people.
