God Can Tear Down And Build Up At The Same Time!
Mark 14:58; Malachi 3:6; John 2:19; Psalms 23:3, 5:8, 31:3, 143:10, 127:1; Philippians 1:6; Numbers 23:19; Joshua 1:8; Proverbs 13:24; Jude 1:24
We are walking in today: God Can Tear Down And Build Up At The Same Time!
Mark 14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. So stop looking at what is being torn down in your life-- God is building us at the same time! Instead of focusing on what God is not doing, or rather what we think that He is not doing, look at what God is definitely doing in your life! The enemy is attacking your marriage but God is building up your prayer life! The enemy is attacking your finances but God is building your trust. God is the Provider not the money! We can not put our trust in something that has a value that changes daily! God is constant--Malachi 3:6 For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Fiveamprayer we are at the eve of our breakthrough! Three days to testimony time! God told us that 7 is the number of completion! This is July and it is already done! So on the day that completes the month of July, the 7th month, we will share the awesome things that God has done for us! Thank You God! It is already done, already finished! Walk in that one, already done and finished! He completed us, sealed us, overshadowed us and now rebuilt us! Thank You God! Glory to your name! John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. We can see this in, Nehemiah 1:1-12, where God had to remove the rubble from what was torn down and build at the same time! God had to tear down some of the old ways before He could rebuild new ones, in Jerusalem. There was walls that had to be broken down such as idolatry, arrogant pride and secularism--that said we don't need God and don't interfere in our personal affairs. God's indictment was very clear and He did not stutter! Our walls have to come down before new ones can be built. Fiveamprayer don't worry about what is being torn down. My God is rebuilding your business! Tell the enemy as fast as you take, my Father is replacing things in my life! As fast as you bring discouragement to my soul, my Father has this prompt response, Psalms 23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. So I am not lost--God has already planned my life for me! Psalms 5:8 Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face. Lead us Lord, into all that You have for us! Thank You Lord! Psalms 31:3 For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me. Psalms 143:10 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. Psalms 127:1 Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. The tearing down in this season is preparing you for your next level building! Only God can tear down and build up at the same time!
Sometimes you think all hell is breaking out, His grace is sufficient! He is your Provider! With those attacks in your finances, He is building your trust. Those attacks in your marriage, He is building your prayer life. Break downs in your life, God is rebuilding you! Old things have passes away, all things have become new! Be that new creature that God is calling you to be! Everybody can't go with you. Don't focus on what you are getting, know that God is working it out. All things come together for the good of them that love the Lord! You will see manifestation in 2012! We will see His glory! He is filling us with His wisdom and knowledge, ask Him--He tells us, "My people perish from lack of knowledge." Don't let the enemy get you caught up--God came to give us life and that more abundantly! Only God can tear down, while building up--all at the same time! He is teaching us to trust Him. All hell is breaking loose while God is building us! Don't worry about what the devil is doing, God is rebuilding us! Look to God, in all things! Look at all that Job went through but he kept looking for God in his situation! At the end of that book, Job stands, rebuilt by God! God is rebuilding us, it may seem like He doesn't hear or see what is going on. We are the one's who really can't see or hear what is going on. God knows what He is doing, sit back and trust Him! He is setting you apart for Himself. Look to the Author and Finisher of your faith! Only God can tear down and build up at the same time. We are to cast down every imagination that would exalt itself against the high knowledge of God! He is the restorer of our souls! Thank You God! You don't have any unfinished projects--Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. Don't give up on the Potter, He is crafting you, the clay! We come to say thank You, this morning! For shaping, making and molding us into the men and women of God that You called us to be! We lift up prayer requests, those known and unknown. Thank You for Your peace that we can be calm and know that You are in control and are working all things together for our good! Because we love You Lord! There is no one like You! Your mercy endures forever! Hallelujah! God is taking away the old and bringing in the new. He is rebuilding us and giving us better, even what we didn't even ask for! Thank You God for your favor and Your hand on our lives! We come to repent this morning for getting distracted by the situation and not looking for You! You, Lord know all things and nothing escapes your notice, our eyes and heart must be turned to You at all times! You control this whole world! There is nothing too hard for You! We thank You for forgiving us and casting our sins as far as the east is from the west. That You would also release us from the guilt of that sin! Thank You Lord! By Your perfect example we have how we are to forgive others. Don't have your prayers hindered because you are walking in unforgiveness! You don't want to miss the mighty move of God in your life, being out of order with His word! They that seek Him, find Him!
We seal this prayer in His precious blood, by His Spirit: Only God can tear down and build up at the same time!
Welcome to the overflow...
You, Lord are the potter and we, the clay. Shape us and purge us! Have us to walk according to Your word. Tear down pride and unforgiveness! Build us up by Your Spirit. It is 3 days until testimony time! He is doing a new thing in us and through us! Amen! Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? I know that God has done something for you in these 14 days that He has called us into a fast, seeking Him in prayer. Hell breaking out but, look to God and see what He is doing in your life! You may have to let someone go. You better get yourself from those that are not seeking God to go up higher in Him! He is speaking to us regarding our finances and our businesses! Don't miss God, waiting on folks! We got run for this blessing! Some times people have to be let go. He has already made provision for you, and in your ministry! Let them go for a season, they can't go with you now. Don't be fearful to let them go, hold on to God! Some of us are holding on to the wrong things! Why are you still sitting there? God has positioned you for more! They can't go with you, those who are walking in disobedience. It is judgement time! God comes to the leaders first! Don't be tied to those who are out of order! God is coming after the church! It is judgement time--the Revelation of Jesus Christ. He said this is the year that we will see! Stop linking yourself up with just any body! Sitting in that dead situation--you can't grow in that! Walk out in faith, even if you have to loose everything. That may be what it takes to break us, that we only lean on and depend on God! Whatever is being torn down in your life, look up to God to see that He is rebuilding you! Even if He does not show up when we want, He is always right on time! That we would have the response that I am still blessed! This is not a season to stagger or waiver--stand! Don't fall! No second guessing, you just gotta trust God! If you want to receive the Revelation of Jesus Christ--He told you that this is your time, this is your season! He already told you that He would do it, now it is time to get yourself out of the way. Let God have His way. Don't you know that you are a new creation in Christ?! Let go of the old ways and thoughts and look to the new ways and thoughts that Christ is and has taught us! Old things have passes away, only God can do that--bring out life from a dying thing. That is how the seeds that are planted have to die to self and yield to God's plan and instruction. Fiveamprayer we must do the same. You have tried it so many times your own way, in your own strength all to no avail. Look to the Master, the Omnipresent One to bring you success in all that you attempt and seek to do. Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Success in your marriage, your children and your business--that success will be a testimony to others. They will know that you were not able to do that on your own, that they too can reach out to God who has His hands out stretched to us. That He could teach them too and that they may experience all that He has for them as well! Stop worrying about what to say, open your mouth and God will speak for you. Walk in obedience and follow His instructions! Can't you see the tearing down, all the while God is building you up in another area! He is rebuilding us, fiveamprayer, and restoring us in this season! We can see better and are made stronger! He is giving us wisdom, knowledge and understanding! Hold on to God's unchanging hand, walk in the peace that He has purchased for us! No longer trust in yourself, look to God! He has to tear down all of those old ways and thoughts, we are to seek His word to renew our mind, daily. We are to have our confidence in God, not ourselves! He is breaking us all the way down to build up back up--letting us know that His grace is sufficient! It is all for our good! Thank You Lord! Give Him all of the glory! If it had not been for the Lord, where would we be? If we did not have a breaking how would our life be? Still out there in the world unaware of the rest and peace that are found in His presence. Don't miss God in this season due to disobedience! Repent and look only to God and turn from all the things that are not of Him! He has to break us to correct us! Proverbs 13:24(AMP) He who spares his rod [of discipline] hates his son, but he who loves him disciplines diligently and punishes him early. Fiveamprayer, we are His children and He will correct us! Sometimes we have to get a Holy Ghost whipping because we won't get it right! Only God can tear down and build up at the same time! He is not gonna move in your disobedience, that situation that you have been sitting in for 15 years!? How long will you remain out of order and still plead with God to move when you are out of order?! Do you really want what God has for you? Will you walk in longsuffering and pick up your cross and follow Him? It takes obedience, it is better than sacrifice! We to seek Him and forsake everything else. Don't only open you Bible on Sundays. Seek Him! Do you really want what He has for you? You have to go out and get it! You need to find our where the word is being taught and go get it! They that hunger and thirst after righteousness, shall be filled! Do you really want it? God is opening up the windows of heaven and pouring out a blessing that there won't be room enough to receive it all! Stop playing church, it is time to fall on our knees at the alter and pray! We are to pray without ceasing. Thank You God for the word this morning! You sealed us, overshadowed us and now tearing down to rebuild us! Thank You God! Only You can do this! What a mighty God we serve! Jude 1:24(AMP) Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]— There is a blessing in the tearing down, we can see what God is doing and revealing in us! He is in the midst of it all! Some times we can't see what God is doing most of the time it is our own imagination that is in the way. Cast it down, think on the things only that are pure and are of a good report! Thank You God! Fiveamprayer, He is a rewarder to those that diligently seek Him! He shows up early, be there to meet Him! Thank You Lord! Have Your way Lord, we yield to You! Break us Lord from our old ways and thoughts, let us take up Your ways and thoughts. Hallelujah! Only God can tear down and build us up at the same time! He is breaking us, to make us over again! Thank You Lord for the breaking! Visit us on facebook and join us at Life by Design the North Campus this Sunday, at 8am Prayer and Worship at 9am, for those that live here locally, let us worship together! We will experience an awesome move of God this weekend! It is almost testimony time! Amen!
