“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings!” (Amos 9:13, MSG).
Your promotion will produce personal chaos. This is a blessing and not a curse. Know that if God is with you, you won’t fail. He will give you the grace to recalibrate and rebalance. Cling to God tightly and press forward anyway. Don’t return to the familiar or the comfortable. The cloud has moved. His grace is now found in the new place and not the old.
Don’t Take off Your Crown!
He is gently reminding you that He has crowned you with glory and honor (Ps. 8:5, MEV). You are to rise and shine, not duck and hide. Promotion is a visible event. It’s not done in secret. Heaven will orchestrate its own coronation ceremony. Like Joshua, you will experience the Lord exalting you in front of people in order to establish His assignment on your life. Accept your assignment and don’t take off your crown. Staying visible is valuable, and this is what glorifies God in this season.
Have You Lost Your Confidence?
“Therefore, do not cast away your confidence, which will be greatly rewarded” (Heb. 10:35).
Your personal confidence will feel unusually challenged in this season. Have you lost your confidence? Go back to where you gave it away and take it back. Your confidence, rooted in Christ, holds great reward!
Healing a Disease
At the same time, the Lord wants to heal a disease in the body of Christ. It’s the disease of insecurity and jealousy. When you know who you are in Christ, you are no longer jealous. The Word is the cure. Go back to the written Word. Anchor yourself to it.
Be Strong and Courageous!
Be strong and courageous! Courage is now a command more than it is a feeling. God is your rock and your sure foundation. He will teach you to swim in deeper waters. He will be with your mouth and teach you how to speak. You will learn to fight at a higher level. Stand assured, because He is with you.
