A sense of humour, fun, creativity, compassion, the ability to be open and vulnerable, a way of thinking that leads to abundance, spiritual and material balance and health, a visionary lifestyle, are the signature of the Holy Spirit. Even the greatest Prophets and Messengers of God, the Saints and Sages, experienced suffering, depression and fear, like the Prophet Elijah, along with many other biblical characters, but they never gave up. They knew, that every problem comes with a promise and a provision attached to it. This is simply part of the process, the evolution of consciousness, it is our training for reigning, a timeless model to become fully human and realize our deepest potential and a living relationship with God, who is our eternal Source, the all-supporting, all-supplying and all-powerful intelligent Ground of Being:
„Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine.“ (1 Peter 1:7-17) – the only important question is, how we give our answer to the trials and challenges of life. The Prayer of the Lord is a revolutionary call to see our life with an elevated prophetic lense: „Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven“.
Jesus calls us to see, think, act and speak from heaven to earth, instead from earth to heaven, we are „seated with Christ in heavenly places“, open for the visions, dreams, imaginations and intuitions of the Spirit. Don’t be conformed to the world. Listen to the voice of the Spirit, trust him, surrender to him and follow his gentle and wise guidance. The Spirit who created this vast universe with billions of galaxies, can beyond the shadow of a doubt lead your life to success and blessing and transform it into a „Tree of Life“, whoever and wherever you are. Hope and dreams deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life – never give up your dreams! This month is a good month to be renewed in your mind and give your permission to a change in your perspective from fear to victory, from the worlds heart sicknesses to the Lords straigh path to a life of blessings, realization of dreams and amazing relationships, who mirror Divine Love on earth.
I proclaim in the name of the Lord these words over your life:
„For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.“ Jeremiah 17:8
„He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.“ Psalm 1:3
„The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.“ Psalm 92:12
„But the righteous will flourish like the green leaf.“ Proverbs 11:28
„By the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither and their fruit will not fail. They will bear every month because their water flows from the sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.“ ~ Ezekiel 47:12
One of the most important (and forgotten) spiritual teachings of early Christianity is: „God became man in order that man might become God“. Christ became man in order to enlighten and awaken us to our true identity in Him, to awaken our heart, so that we can live a life of fullness in the freedom of Christ, as conscious and free individual agents of the Infinite Spirit, his pure love, light and intelligence.
That’s simply E.P.I.C = Everything is possible in Christ.
May you all experience this freedom in your life, more and more with every day of this month. Just relax in the presence of the Lord (let God be God and be simply who you are!) and trust in his Infinite Intelligence, which leads and guides us always in the direction of blessing and growth, if we listen and walk the way in alignment with his Spirit. Trust Jesus. Trust the Holy Spirit. He know, leads and is the Way, but we must make the decision to walk and trust. “He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.”
