S.H.I.F.T IN SEASON WITH GOD
This weekly blog focuses on Shifting in season with God by using the word SHIFT as an acronym and taking us through this word and sharing critical steps we need to accomplish in order to SHIFT IN SEASON WITH GOD.
Step 1-S STANDS FOR
• Submit…..That is for those who are not Saved or born again submission requires that you complete the steps to Salvation by using the 4 A’s formula – acknowledge that you are a sinner, agree with John 3:16, ask Jesus Christ to forgive you of your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior. For those who are Saved or born again- Submit To God….. every area of your life- not part time, but full time submission…SUBMIT TO THE ENTIRE WORD OF GOD- This Submission requires daily sanctification
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Lifelong….
Some sanctification scriptures
• 1 Thessalonians 5:23a – And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly;
Leviticus 20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.
Wisdom and sanctification
1 Corinthians 10:23
King James Version (KJV)
23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
1st Corinthians 10:33- NIV
33 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.
Sanctification is a way of life-
Galatians 5: 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
So S stands for Submission- Salvation and then daily continuous sanctification if you want to inherit the kingdom of God.
S- Submission, Salvation, SANCTIFICATION
Step 2-H stands for Healed or healing
• H- ealed
Be healed, be delivered and be set free
God heals all manner of sickness
Matthew 4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
19 Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.
20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
He heals even our broken hearts, our broken emotions
Psalm 147:3-He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
Psalm 147:15-He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.
H- He sends his word swiftly to heal us
Step 3- I stands for…Inquire of God and Incline our ears (spiritual and natural) and will to OBEY
• Inquire- of God and then Incline your spiritual ear to Obey God
Proverbs 3: 5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6-In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Inquiry- is the key to absolute deliverance and victory. Just ask David
1st Samuel 30:8- And David enquired at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.
2 Samuel 5:19- And David enquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the Lord said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
22-And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.23 And when David enquired of the Lord, he said, Thou shalt not go up; but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.24 And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the Lord go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.
Inquire always…and Incline your Ears (natural and spiritual) and will to Obey
Step 4- F stands for both
Forgive and Fearlessness
• Forgive others…
Mark 11:25-And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26-But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
Second You Must…….. Fearless
Fearless- 2 Timothy 1: 7:-For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Finally after we have submitted ourselves to God, been healed where we need healing, Inquired of God and Inclined our wills to obey, forgave ourselves and others…we are FEARLESS and are ready for the last and fifth step
• T stands for Terrify The Kingdom Of Darkness
Terrify…. THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS… with a Spiritual Tenacity… Are you a concern an Interest or Threat
Adopt A BOLD ATTITUDE
Get after the things of God, Follow hard AFTER God..
God chaser requirements- Basics… Ability to withstand hardship, ABLE to pursue and persevere with great determination at times making extreme sacrifices…..
Inquire and then Incline
Forgiveness and Fearlessness
You will be in position to
Terrify the Kingdom Of Darkness
Natural Shifts causes Heavenly Shifts
The SHIFT Must start within
