Staying on the wall is a lot harder than it sounds. It is probably the hardest thing you will have to do in your journey with Christ. Staying on the wall makes surrendering your heart and will over to Jesus look like child’s play.
Have you ever had one of those weeks where from the minute you wake up until the minute you lay your head back down to sleep, you are being tested, pruned, purged, molded, gutted and back to being tested? Have you ever gone through days upon days of constant pruning and purging of your flesh? It is absolutely gut-wrenching and the most uncomfortable thing you will endure.
Transition seasons are very important seasons in the life of a believer but it is also one of the hardest. Your season of transition takes place between where you are now and where you are going. The in between area is where it gets really crazy.
I am in my in-between area right now and I only have one word to describe it: HELP!
In seasons of transition, you will find yourself in situations that test everything in you and the angels of God will be dispensed to judge the disposition of your heart and how you react to the hand you’ve been dealt. God is in a season of judgement and he has dispensed angels to judge, observe, discern and make declarations against the body of Christ.
We are in a season of reckoning that will produce many casualties and the body of Christ will receive a death blow because believers will be turning away from the truth of the word to explore other pastures.
This is not the season to be so callous.
This season is going to stretch us in ways that we can’t even begin to imagine or fathom and it’s going to be extremely uncomfortable. But, God asks of only one thing from us as we travail through the forests, deserts and valleys and that is to STAY ON THE WALL.
When God spoke this to me this morning, I had a flash of every single person that is connected to me (My family, friends, covenant family, coworkers, onlookers, etc.) and I envisioned something my spiritual father said we have to do in life which involves holding my arms up above my head and staying in position. I realized that the minute I falter, everything that is connected to me will falter too.
You can’t afford to take your eyes off the wall. You can’t afford to take your eyes off of your assignment. You can’t afford to be moved to and fro by your emotions which are 99.99999% always biased and wrong.
YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO LEAVE THE WALL.
The lives of your family depends on it. The lives of your lineage depends on it. Your destiny and purpose depends on it. Anyone connected to you will feel the aftershocks of you walking away from the wall because it starts from the head down.
Here is my testimony:
I am a warrior in Christ and my faith is steeped in a belief system that is based on the truth of the word. I will not doubt God and I can’t afford to doubt myself because if “greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world-1 John 4:4″, when I doubt myself, aren’t I in turn doubting God?
I will win. I will prosper. My life is a victory lap! Speak to it! Speak it over your life!
I will not cross every “T” and dot every “I” but I will proclaim the glory of God from the fruit of my lips and I will stay on the wall.
The kingdom of God needs believers who are not easily shaken or moved from their seat of authority in Christ. Do we not realize how hard we fought to get that seat in the first place? The hell we had to go through? The season and climate that we are in can’t take another lukewarm believer. The kingdom needs fire and passion! That is the only way the will of God will be manifested in the Earth because he will have people whose passion for his kingdom opens up new realms in the heavens to bring light and life to regions and nations.
STAY ON THE WALL!
