This is Day 14 from the Journal Challenge:
“Listen to the Lord who created you, the One who formed you says,” Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name, you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up, the flames will not consume you.
For I AM the Lord your GOD. The Holy One of Israel, your Savior. – Isaiah 43:1-3
I woke up and the Lord gave me this word for you, “You are under attack.”
Satan is cool with you spending time with God for a day or two. He actually hates it but he knows that he can try to distract you from being consistent.
He can bring exhaustion, a cold, hard times and pressure or whatever else.
His issue is that he doesn’t want you spending time with God consistently. Because He knows the power that comes from a strong, confident, relationship with Jesus!
We are now 2 weeks into this challenge and I wonder who is still rocking with us? Have you allowed satan to distract you?
You are literally breaking generational curses in this challenge.
You are breaking free from insecurities.
You are breaking free from fear.
You are stepping out on faith.
You are resting in God.
You are drawing close to Him.
You finally feel close to God again.
Do you really think that satan and his little assigned demons are going to sit back and watch you?
NO. He’s going to send DISTRACTIONS and attacks your way to get you off focus! Satan is saying, “I have to STOP you!!”
But GUESS WHAT?
1 John 4:4 tells me that “WE already have won a victory, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.”
COME ON JESUS!
Satan has to ASK for permission to test you and guess what? GOD USES the tests to mature, develop and to make you EVEN more dependent on the Lord.
Heather, why would God do that??
Imagine that you go to the gym and you pick up a 300 pound weight. It would crush you if you haven’t trained in it. You have to go to the gym and WORK your way up to that weight. You gotta train when you don’t feel like it, train when it’s hard, train when you’re tired and train when life is hard.
God knows that your purpose is that 300 pound weight. And it’s going to crush you if you walk in your specific calling right now. So, He ALLOWS it because He already knows that He is working out everything for your GOOD. (Romans 8:28).
So use today as that weight. Squat that thing. I know it’s hard. I know it’s heavy but God is saying “MY yoke is EASY and my BURDEN is LIGHT.” (Matthew 11:30)
I’ve gotten some questions on what to journal and this is included in the Journal details below but I use my journal to write what the Lord shows me, I use it to keep me accountable (for example, today is day 14), I use it to pour my heart out to Jesus. (like a diary.)
ALSO! Good news! ALL of the previous days have been uploaded to www.heatherllindsey.com under “BLOG” so you can read them there.
So, again, today is day 14. Grab your journals and write “Day 14” Tomorrow is Day 15 and so on. If this is your first day joining the challenge, for you — it’s day 1. If you haven’t grabbed your journal or a book to read for the month — find one! If you need some help, I have journals and books HERE. I will rush ship everything to you!
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the details of the Journal challenge, check it out HERE.
I shared a course that I recorded on “Overcoming Insecurities” so if you are finding that rejection, abandonment and your past is stopping you from being happy, married, joyful, single or whatever else – check it out HERE.
ALSO, every week, I will be giving you a NEW scripture to meditate on for the week. The goal is to meditate on it daily AND memorize it. Even if you’ve already memorized the scripture — then meditate on it. Just roll it over in your mind, think about it, focus on it, break it down and study it in a brand new way.
I hope it’s going well! We will have a new one on Monday!
WE HAVE A NEW CHALLENGE FOR TOMORROW (1/15).
Let’s do a “NO SWEETS” day! This doesn’t include fruits. Buttt it does include the donuts, cookies, cakes, candy and other white sugars!
Every time you’re tempted to grab sweets, grab an apple or fruits!
Here’s this week’s scripture to memorize:
“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Last week’s scripture is:
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Just a few things!
-I will be sending out a DAILY email of encouragement for the next 21 days and we will wrap with my FREE monthly study on January 23rd, 2020 at 9pm EST LIVE on my Youtube Channel. ( I will also be doing a Live Q & A!)
-There’s no “set” time to when I will send out the daily email. I will send it out as the Holy Spirit places it on my heart. It may be 8am EST. Or, 8pm EST. Don’t worry, it’s coming! Also, make sure you take this email out of your junk mail if it went there!
-Be sure to join the Facebook Group for accountability! You can join the group HERE. If the link isn’t pulling up for you for some reason, just search “Pinky Promise Sisterhood” on Facebook.
Remember, it’s easy to start. The goal here is to FINISH. You have 24 hours in ONE day. Give 1% of your day to God for the next 21 days. I can ASSURE you that it will CHANGE your life.
After the 21 days, you will find yourself NATURALLY going to the Lord’s presence for 1:1 time.
