Keep It Moving
by Becky DeWitt
The adversary has organized and set a deceptive plan using the mind of the Believer to create a mirage of false evidence that appears real enough to make one think that we are living through see –nothing days. This mirage is a lie from the pits of hell using every strategy to weary the faith of the saints. A board meeting was held and you are the primary target. The orders were issued with subversive tactics enlisting deception, delusion, despair, distraction, and most importantly, doubt.
What do you do when you have received a word of prophecy from a man or woman of God, concerning a transition in your life that has yet to manifest? Some may say that you must question the source. If you know the person who God is using and their track record reads with accuracy, don’t blame the mailman. They are just the instruments of delivery to your mailbox.
Keep it moving. You may ask what is it that I need to keep moving? Your praise and your worship. How do I do that? I am in the valley of this situation. I don’t see anything happening. This is the time to keep it moving because it is your praise and your worship that will create the Echo Effect. An echo is created by a sound that is a reflection of the original. It is what you have said sent back to you. This sound is usually produced in a valley. Remember that a valley is a low point between two mountains.
You must shift and set your mind to allow only the Word of God to impregnate your thoughts, detaching you from the sense realm. Cast down every vain imagination sent from the enemy. (2 Corinthians 10:5). You must wear the helmet of salvation. Don’t lose your head in the moment. Remember it is temporary. It is just a moment, not a lifetime. The helmet will guard your thoughts and deliver you from the seeds that the enemy attempts to plant in your thought life. Do not underestimate the power of your mind and the thought process.
Keep your praise moving like a bulldozer, a mighty threshing instrument, climbing through and tearing up the ground the enemy has attempted to steal and barricade. Remember Paul and Silas and how they praised God while they were in jail and chained up. Suddenly the ground shook with an earthquake and the foundation of the prison was shaken. You need an earthquake praise that will shake everything of the enemy until he lets go of your goods suddenly. Don’t forget that many heard Paul and Silas. The seed of their praise was planted so that even the jailer became a Believer. You do not know who is watching you and your response to the situation during this season.
The ultimate plan of the enemy is to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10). He is after your faith. It is the one key ingredient that keeps you leaning, relying, and trusting confidently in the almighty God. You slipped out of the grip of the adversary to salvation, which only required simple faith. Now you are believing God for great and naturally impossible things. Just in case you are not aware of it, you are in a faith fight. The enemy has set the trap to make you think you will not have the victory. Your “now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1).
Once you posses the word in your heart and spirit so that the manifestation appears in the natural, it is the evidence. Evidence is proof of the awesome power of God operating in your life and your faith in Him. Evidence destroys doubt and unbelief. Evidence does damage to that which the enemy has attempted to set. Evidence sets the stage for the testimonies in the atmosphere. Testimonies are infectious to Believers. They spread leaving a seed of a thought. “He did for them and He can do it for me.” God is no respecter of persons. (Romans 2:11).
A word of caution during this season. The enemy will attack you in every area and use your own mouth against you, if he can. Do not become like the Israelites in the Old Testament who were whining, murmuring, complaining, and questioning. God knows your position and your condition. If you have entered into this trap, repent quickly now, and keep it moving. Have you ever considered God’s heart and mind concerning your reaction to this situation? Do you ever think that you might hurt Him with your questions after He has explained it all in His Word? Just because in this moment you are going through, have you forgotten that he is El Shaddai? He has invested much in you. There will be a return on the deposit of the divine seed as you are a great investment. Even the angels that He has given charge over you, stand in awe of how He is so mindful of you.
It is important that you remember who is the author and finisher of your faith. Jesus is the source, the one who created and is writing out your faith, from beginning to the end. “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2). He wrote the place that you are in right now and He wrote the place that you will be. His joy is in knowing that you are being perfected from faith to faith and from glory to glory. In other words, the faith that you possess was imparted to you from Him long before time began in eternity. Look back at the walk that you have taken on this journey. He has distributed just enough to take you to the next level to reveal His glory in you. Keep it moving. Remember the price that was paid on Calvary for your redemption. “Endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. (2 Timothy 2:3). The mark of the prize awaits you as all of it is working together for your good and His glory.
“For light affliction, which but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”(2 Corinthians 4:17)
