Spiritual Warfare Or Discipline From God?

I remember a time in my life where I would tell people I must be the most loved woman on the planet because all I got night and day from the Lord was discipline. The truth was I was pretty rebellious when I came to the Lord, and it took me a while to learn how to trust God the Father that he had my best intentions in mind when he brought something to my attention he wanted to work on. This is why doing identity work is imperative if you want to break out of poverty mentalities and fulfill your purpose. 

As I began to learn how to be an overcomer,  more ministry opportunities opened up, and I started to have an impact in the kingdom through my prayers and actions. As this happened, I began to get TREMENDOUS spiritual warfare. If you don’t know how to recognize the difference, you will feel held back and unclear in your identity.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

1. You are making a stand for righteousness in your family, work or community where you have to put healthy boundaries into place where there have been none.
2. You are being persecuted because you have preached Christ rather than self-help, new age doctrines or idolatry. You are actively praying and speaking to people about receiving Christ and getting tension for it.
3. You are declaring Christ in regions of the world that are closed to the gospel.
4. You are in the process of getting delivered from worldly lust like addictions, mammon or witchcraft. (yes, witchcraft, satanic cults and all those things we don’t like to talk about are real and produce spiritual warfare when you come out of it) Breaking out of curses, rebellion can also cause spiritual warfare.

The discipline of the Lord comes when he has given you an instruction, and you are not yielding to the Holy Spirit. Often God is attempting to form a testimony in your life and create a healthy fear and respect for you so that he can BLESS and answer your prayers to send you with POWER. His discipline gets harder and harder when you don’t listen to the Holy Spirit convicting you first and then the people he put in your life to guard you. Here are a couple of ways I have experienced the discipline of the Lord and got my chain yanked. 

DISCIPLINE

1. The Lord point blank told me to stop watching horror movies, and it took a very scary spiritual situation to open my eyes. Never watched another horror movie after the Holy Spirit disciplined me.
2. The Lord told me through a close friend that I was seeking affirmation (in idolatry) from leaders, and I didn’t listen because I was so wrapped up in people pleasing. I experienced a very embarrassing public situation.
3. The Lord asked me to stop arguing with people and just pray. It was more important to me to right than be in the relationship. The Lord let me experience many broken friendships, and anxiety until I realized I didn’t have to defend myself he would.
4. God told me to block time to step out of ministry and into prayer and life coaching. I kept hesitating, and I got convicted and anxious. I was scared of FAILURE, but when I finally repented for not trusting God and obeyed, I began to have peace and prosper.

How To Pray And Bless Your Enemies Practically

Today, I want to share with you how to pray for the people that are causing you to feel bitter and resentful.

Why do we want to do this? Well first, unforgiveness will kill your clarity and every bit of purpose you are called to. It’s SPIRITUAL WARFARE that has to be overcome by PRAYER.

I have been betrayed. Disappointed. Let down. But every single time the enemy came in to steal my peace and my hope…like a FLOOD the spirit of God lifted up a standard, and I was promoted. I believe this in part was due to what I am going to share with you today so listen, this is one of the best tips I have for you if you feel stuck in past conflicts and relational traumas.

You’re going to pray very specifically and consistently for this person. I tell people to pray for a year if necessary on a daily basis. Many times we just give people platitudes that are generic and don’t bring them to the personal pain and suffering in the cross. It’s reasonable Christianity to pray for those who mistreat and persecute you unjustly.

Everything you want in your own life and need RIGHT NOW, you’re going to pray for them to receive a powerful blessing. Here’s some I have helped clients work through. I learned this by implementing it and seeing the results in my own life. This works SO POWERFULLY you’ll be amazed by the freedom and joy you feel after a very short time. I have even written out prayers for my clients with these issues.

  1. Bitter Divorce. You’re going to pray financial provision that is abundant for this individual. That their heart heals from the abandonment, they have felt. You’re going to pray against any assignment of rejection coming against them. You’re going to pray that God sends them a new spouse that is under Lordship and parents out of a revelation of feeling deep love and highly favored by God.
  2. You got fired. You’re going to pray that God sends the leadership team or your ex-boss fabulous, spirit-filled employees who are on fire for God and walk in authority. You’re going to pray a financial blessing on the whole company. That their business will explode with profits and they will run the company with integrity.
  3. You have family that is addicted to… That the Lord will bless them with a long life and great peace. That he provides money for them and they use that to make right choices. That they know how to receive and give God’s abundant love and be sent to serve others out of their own overcoming message. That the Lord uses for good what the enemy means to destroy them with.
  4. You’ve been molested or sexually traumatized. You’re going to pray for this individual that they receive the love of Christ. That they can break free from the shame, guilt, and condemnation that they are under and that they receive a revelation of their identity in Christ. That they find good friends that help them safe, forgiven and free. That they can walk in wholeness in their sexuality.

And here’s the thing, praying like this will KILL your flesh, and you will walk under the PROMOTION of God. Any thoughts to add? Meet me in the comments below and let’s talk about it!

Accountability Partners

When I have a client come to me for private coaching, one of the first questions I ask them is if they have anyone in their life they are accountable to. The truth is most people do not have any good experiences with accountability done rightly! You see, in order to grow your identity in Christ, you need to be mentored by spiritual mother’s and fathers and also have sisters and brothers in Christ who hold you accountable for the vision God has given you to accomplish in the earth.

They avoid it because they are afraid of being “found out” that they are failures or other negative outcomes that maybe they saw someone else experience. You see, in order to grow your identity in Christ, you need to be mentored by spiritual mother’s and fathers and also have sisters and brothers in Christ who hold you accountable for the vision God has given you to accomplish in the earth. You see, the number one way to push through spiritual warfare is through unity in prayer!

Here are some challenges my clients have pushed through using accountability and action!

  • A lack of personal discipline
  • Sloppy eating patterns
  • Fitness and weight goals
  • Addictions and other compromising patterns
  • Marriage Difficulties
  • Financial chaos
  • Social awkwardness or rejection that leads to isolating themselves
  • Parenting challenges

If you are confused constantly, fighting the same battles over and over, then you need to develop a focused plan and ask someone to hold you accountable to stay on track to finish what you start. Watch this to discover what that person should do for you!

20 Signs You Need To Grow Your Spiritual Authority

I believe in the power of prayer and taking militant action. One of the things that constantly comes up with my clients is a mindset that the devil can cause them constant spiritual warfare. Here’s the truth. The devil is defeated but our passive mindsets empower him.  The only real power he has is fear, intimidation, and deception.

Here’s how this breaks down practically. The longer you take to assertively co-create the life you love with Christ and align your daily actions with your vision, the longer you stay stuck in survival mode. Much of this can be changed by just receiving training on how to operate in your ALREADY ESTABLISHED spiritual authority. This is the list I CREATED after working with people in ministry and business for over thirty years.

Here are 20 Ways To Know You Need To Grow Your Spiritual Authority

1. You are in survival mode and doubt that God has an EXACT purpose for your life. Little or muddled vision. You have not memorized or are actively confessing any scripture over your life and vision. You’re waiting and waiting for breakthrough.

2. Who you are hanging around can change your direction, convictions and the vision you have established for yourself. You don’t know enough of the word of God to keep you channeled and you’re not speaking it over yourself daily.

3. Your closest relationships that you share your heart with are chaotic or unchallenging. They have worldly mindset’s and are low in leadership.

4. You say yes when you want to say no. You struggle with what people think of you and you make decisions for what you can avoid not what you believe is the right choice.

5. In relationships or friendships, you feel guilty for blocking time for your self-care. If they have a need, that comes first to your detriment. Then you’re resentful, or you struggle with self-pity.

6. You connect with people intensely, but then something happens to derail it, cause you to be offended or to find something wrong with them. There’s always a reason you are disconnected.

7. You spend time investing in helping those who are down-trodden, but you’re not able to experience the resurrection to your dreams and desires.

8. You are the most influential person in your circle. You don’t have anyone pioneering before you in your family, ministry or marketplace dreams.

9. Can’t step into your vision because you don’t have the faith or finances to see them come to life.

10. You find people just aren’t honest or real with you. Constant situations where you know people have misrepresented themselves in ministry or in the marketplace.

11. You suspect something is wrong in a situation and might even share that with one other person, but you don’t take action on it because deep down, you don’t trust your discernment. When you find out you were right, you are angry with yourself for staying stuck in it.

12. You wear yourself out analyzing, what-ifing and being tormented by negative outcomes. You have faith in prayer but can’t translate that into practical action that helps you get results.

13. You are distracted by other people’s visions and causes. You don’t have that one thing that is your God given purpose to help solve or a vision that invigorates you.

14. You are more comfortable with animals than you are people. They are safe; people are not.

15. You are happiest when everyone is at peace. You avoid any conversations that could create tension. You don’t want to challenge people to change as they may ask you about your life.

16. You are intimidated by individuals who have a lot of money or external success. It makes you feel “less then”.

17. Very creative but you can’t channel it. Always coming up with brilliant idea’s but never executing on them long enough to see any fruit or financial payout.

18. You have great difficulty keeping things organized or throwing things away. = It prevents you from thinking, strategizing or planning for the future.

19. When someone is being put down or minimized, you have difficulty speaking up for them because you don’t want that negative attention focused on you.

20. You have trouble serving others when you’re not feeling confident or strong. You shut down, hide in your house when you’re not performing the way you want.

From time to time, we all struggle with these but if you answered yes to more than 3 of these questions and it’s been a pattern for you then consider being part of my Leadership Team and getting coaching in this particular area of your life.

10 Ways To Be A BOLD Spiritual Mother

Before we begin, let me explain the title. I am writing this blog for all the women who are tired of watching the enemy swallow up their friends, family and they are ready to be the kind of woman who creates tension to the enemy. Without apologies.

If you have never had someone you love cut themselves with razor blades, attempt suicide multiple times, sabotage themselves with addictions, and other assorted life-defining decisions that delay’s them for decades, then you might not understand the level of “I don’t care what anyone thinks” focus you have to go to in order to spiritually rescue someone who is captured by the enemy like this.

If you are here because you want to ignite other women with an overcoming mentality for the kingdom, then get your coffee because you and I are going to talk about how you can take care of business.

10 Ways To Be A Bold Spiritual Mother

 1. Model fearing God and not people pleasing.  You do this by getting your affirmation from the Lord through prayer and worship. Teach women how to get on their face, crying out to God to be delivered from needing affirmation from people. Make prayer your number one priority daily and set aside 1 hour a morning. If you want to impart boldness, you’re going to have to walk in authority, know your identity in Christ and know how to stand during tension when everyone else is crumbling. God builds this resolve in you by creating situations where you feel rejected, and you have to pioneer alone. Get used to it. It’s boot camp for strong women.

2. Model being prepared to be the one in the room who say’s what no one else will and takes action alone. Be submitted, not stupid. Most men love this as they want to be respected themselves for their leadership. There will be a few that will pull the “You’re not submitted card.” Ignore them and let your fruit and result’s praise you in the gate. Value your calling enough to set clear boundaries about what you will do and what you won’t tolerate. If you find yourself compromising, repent and get another woman in prayer to pray over you firmly and remind you WHO YOU ARE until you regain your strength.

3. Model a compelling vision that makes other women say, “Dang. That’s what I want”. I’m not talking about being perfect. I’m talking about being bold, faithful and not apologizing for wanting the best out of life and your relationships.  Understand you will get back to back spiritual warfare for living a transformational life that impacts other women. Pray that God will allow you to finish strong in a heroic way that leaves a legacy for your daughters and other women.

4. Realize everything out of your mouth is either going to position you as a victim or as a victor. Memorize the word of God. Declare the scriptures when you feel weak and when the enemy is screaming to intimidate you. Jesus spoke the word to the devil. He didn’t think it demurely. Have a big mouth and channel it against the devil.

5. Surround yourself with women who shoot for huge goals in their leadership, their life and in the marketplace. See yourself as the pioneer, get into a team or organization that affirms you for thinking outside the box. Don’t play it safe as second in command. Be all in before God and who you are accountable to. Be submitted and coachable by those you trust. There will be a time when you can’t hear God, the warfare is so thick, and you will need those women around you.  Model victory even when you feel completely tapped. Embrace the fight and don’t run from pain. You will become what you speak over yourself.

6. Encourage other women to get started with what grace God has given them even if they are 16.  Get on your face in prayer, fight for the weak, come up with ideas on how to impact for Christ and run like the race horse you are. Start a Bible study in your neighborhood, school or workplace. The key is immediate action. You’re a mother in 9 month’s not nine years. Quit waiting for maturity. You don’t need a theology degree or anyone’s permission. Christ died, and the apostles didn’t attend theology school. They were out making disciples right after the Holy Ghost was poured out. You have your mission instructions in Matthew 28. Spiritual mothering is a mindset and revelation of authority. It comes when you’re ready to reproduce disciples for the kingdom. You won’t become a mother until you’re willing to advance the kingdom militantly.

7. When you find someone, you respect, insist on serving her. This will help you later weed out the people in your life who want to hang around you to soak and with no intention of doing any work themselves. Oh, sorry if that doesn’t sound very compassionate but here’s the truth.  I don’t want compassion. I want to win, and you need to surround yourself with other militant women. You have no time for people who don’t want to kick the devil’s teeth in. Take her out for breakfast with a steno pad and ask questions and shut your mouth. Run her errands, offer to clean her car, ask her if you can run with her, offer to match the socks in her sock basket. Do not take no for an answer. I did this with 2 or three women, and they let me in their friend circle when I was in my twenties. They were wealthy and wise. Bam. Your making powerful friends. One woman in your life like at this level of authority is all you need for turning into a female spiritual Rambo.

8. Give other women and your daughters permission to hear God for themselves, do the work and make mistakes.  Don’t be so quick to give solutions when other women are in pain. Pain makes people get on their face. Instead remind them of WHO they are AND WHAT THEY ARE CAPABLE OF WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.  Encourage them to go to God for themselves and ask him specific questions on how to solve their problems. Teach them how to worship God, pray hard for hours and confess the word of God over a problem until they learn how to pull down strongholds themselves. Teach them how to fail big time and then go back to God the next day. Let them work through their salvation with fear and trembling; it builds mental toughness.

9. Model teaming. There are no lone Rangerette’s. You know why? They got picked off by the enemy. When the obstacle is life-threatening, you need people partnering with you in prayer who know their authority and how to be RELENTLESS until they get the victory. Teach her not to worry about what anyone thinks about her other than God. That’s the only person she will be standing before at the end, and if she does what you tell her, she will hear, “Well done, good and faith butt-kicking woman.”

10. Tell me you’re strategy below so you can help other women with your wisdom!

Discerning God’s Will In Prayer

What happens when you take the time to pray, co-create a vision you believe is from God and still don’t have the assurance that everything is going according to plan?

You move forward my friend with your best plan that you have come up with after prayer. Faith leads us to our identity in Christ. Double-mindedness and holding back that you aren’t’ good enough or that you will not measure up to your vision does nothing but drive you with fear.

Satan accuses with condemnation and second-guessing. The Holy Spirit of TRUTH leads with faith in WHO you are in Christ. And by the way, it’s work that has to be done in prayer daily.

My friend, this is where faith requires you to confess, belief and to accept WHO God says you are in Him despite your lack of clarity. With what little revelation you have in your hand. Because here’s the thing. Even John the Baptist at the very end of his mission, asked his followers to go and ask Jesus, “Are you the one, or is there another”? J-o-h-n T-h-e B-a-p-t-i-s-t. The man who was so sure about his mission he was eating bugs and rebuking kings without fear.

I remember a time when I had a problem to solve, and I kept going to God about it day after day in prayer. One day I was very frustrated with the Lord. I said, “Lord, I have been interceding about this situation for many months now. I have asked you to download a plan to me and yet you haven’t.

I heard CLEAR AS DAY. “Becky, you’re not waiting on me, I’ve been waiting for you.”

I was stunned. I asked the Lord, what? How long have you been waiting on me? He said since the first day you asked me. WHATTTTT? I said you’re God. You give people plans; I was waiting for the perfect plan from you. It was going to be a revelation that glorified you because I waited on you and didn’t act in the flesh. (Don’t you love when you break down for God what he needs to do, insert the fourth part of the Trinity here-Becky)

He said, no you’re fearful that the plan you come up with fail, and you don’t want to take ownership.

I was so laid out by this revelation that I got up out of my prayer closet and solved the problem that week.

You may say like I have many times. “Lord, what if my plan fails 100 times”? He says to you and me, You are who I say. Here are some examples of ideas you may have to come with yourself:

  • How to solve your marriage problem
  • How to discipline wayward children
  • How to solve your marketing problem
  • How to make an extra $100 a month
  • How to raise money for a missionary

So, get out the acceptable plan that you have created and begin to pray this over yourself=> Lord, take my good, acceptable plan and turn it in your good and perfect will. I will not hide my talents this year because I am afraid of you or even my own failure. I will believe you that I AM BLESSED beyond the curse. I AM crucified in you, and it is no longer I that lives but Christ that lives in me. I AM not going to be held back by my lack of clarity, my feelings on how ill-equipped I feel to be a good spouse, parent, friend, business person….etc.I AM a light on a hill; I take the plunge to do great things for you. I will get back up every time I fail because you strengthen me.

To quote General Patton (Whom I am sure was very loved by God)

Better a good plan executed violently today than a perfect plan tomorrow.

Friend, when you pray, believe in faith and move forward with your acceptable plan. Trust God to make it a good and perfect plan.

Supernatural Expansion: Signs And Wonders Through Your Prayers

Ben Stuart, Passion City Church

Supernatural Expansion…. How to See Signs And Wonders Through Your Prayers

I was recently listening to Louie Giglio preach a series called POWER-FULL. The series takes you through the book of Acts and how God equips ordinary people and sends them out supernaturally to introduce people to Christ and his power.

Right now I am on the 6th in the series and listening to Ben Stuart teach on Impact through ordinary citizens. He shares his personal experience with being an introvert and yet being hungry to see people reached for Christ. (Hilarious by the way) In this particular segment, he talks about how God loves using “non-professionals”.

So as I am listening to this series, walking my dogs around the neighborhood, I began to pray, give me some opportunities this week like you did for Ben! I want MORE of your power. MORE of your fire on my life. Renew me Lord!

I try to keep my heart on fire for God like I was in my twenties.  I used to have people constantly say to me when I was homeschooling, leading neighborhood bible studies and then in sales…

I want to learn to pray like you do! I want to know God like this, personal and powerful!

So how does this happen?  What I love about what Ben said, and that I have experienced my whole walk with Christ is God loves to answer the prayer of ordinary people to be used supernaturally.

Ten years ago, when I shared my almost 1 million dollar ID theft with the Vice-President of Marketing for a major identity company, he told me my story was the kind that he wanted to get on a major network TV show. He shared he had been trying for months to get a hold of this particular TV producer and they just wouldn’t call him back. I said, “Well I don’t know if you believe in prayer but I do so let’s pray for favor for you right now”.

Now, one of the things I tell people all the time is you don’t sit around waiting for five awkward minutes for people to give you permission. You politely wait 2 seconds and then you begin to pray in the name of Jesus. Well, within seconds I knew the Lord was all over this (and you will too) I prayed for his job, his family and for God to open supernatural doors no man could open. So, you can imagine this man’s surprise when the TV executive he was trying to reach multiple times, that hadn’t taken his calls for three months, called him 5 minutes after we hung up the phone.

What a coincidence!

He was so excited that God would care enough to answer his work problem that he called me right back and asked me if I could fly to New York and be on the TV show with my story. And that opportunity opened up other doors to pray with more people and to grow more successfully in my business.

So, who do you have the chance to pray with?

Let’s say you’re a stay at home mom, and you run into a neighbor who shares with you, her son is struggling in school. Stop right then and ask her if you can pray, Remember, Be BOLD. This perfect opportunity is not about YOU; it’s about displaying God’s power!

What if God doesn’t show up? Well, what happens if HE DOES? Your prayer could change someone’s life and show them God cares about the details in their life! Maybe you’re an executive, and a client is stressed about how they are going to solve their financial problem. PRAY FOR THEM! This, my friends, is how to have FUN and see the supernatural!

Would you like to become a mighty vessel of God and coach others into more success? Then get ready to pray vigorous and bold!

Love, Bec:)

Are Curses Real? You bet.

Curses that are not broken will prevent you from becoming identity wise who God has called you to be. Through the shed blood of Christ, you have been given authority to break negative patterns, sinful behaviors and anything else that prevents you from hearing God’s voice, receiving his love and walking in joy and POWER!

This should be standard identity work for all new Christians but some reason a lot of my clients have never gone through this process, so I wanted to provide a blog on this. Not everything is a curse, but if you can’t get the victory in an area, you have recurring patterns of negativity or your afraid of random things….This is the first thing I would consider. In my teams, I provide declarations to break curses.

Strongholds can occur from a lack of Lordship, not setting clear and firm boundaries that bring us peace, un-forgiveness, greed, selfishness or real generational curses that have been passed down from our parents who were actively engaged in unrepentant sin. This is an Old Testament example. Jesus brought a new covenant but you have to apply it actively and militantly to your old man to experience freedom. 

Exodus 34:7 KJV

Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children,, unto the third and fourth generation.

I want to talk to you specifically about how I have overcome these in my life and give you a client example. First, as a new believer, I knew there was a curse of alcoholism on both sides of my family. My mother and my dad’s side for over two generations that I knew of. That’s substantial bondage for about 100 years in our family. What did this curse bring into my family?

Addiction to alcohol, food, cigarettes
Adultery
Out of wedlock pregnancy’s
Enabling and a lack of value.
Divorce
Occultic Activity
Pornography
Horror and sudden disaster
Molestation
Fornication
Lying
Control and manipulation
Anger and outbursts
Depression, self-harm
Premature death in the men

When I began to break curses over my life and apply the blood of Jesus, I had two out of body experiences where I was transported to the spirit realm and had to battle demons. I woke up twice coming back into my body. (Hope that wasn’t too “out-there” for you, but it’s the truth) and I am not watering that down so people are more comfortable).

People don’t like to believe that demonic activity is real or they would like to compartmentalize experiences like this into some psychological explanation. In the church, there are denominations that believe that when you receive Christ, curses are broken once and for all, and this send people who are oppressed for counseling, drugs, and therapy. I believe you cannot be possessed if you have received Christ but you can be OPPRESSED and if you don’t apply your authority in Christ you will stay stuck for a very long time and not experience victory.

Here’s the bottom line. The Christian life was meant to be lived with POWER.  I have experienced the glory of God twice in my life (as in, God was in my room manifested).  I have also received supernatural instructions in my dreams (twice) to take action immediately that was verified by others and I have coached thousands of people out of fear, cults, abuse, passive aggressive behaviors and actual oppression daily. You can argue theology all day long, but you can’t argue experiences, freedom, and results. Start demonstrating results and it has a way of making people just pipe down.

I wouldn’t trade the testimony of Christ to deliver, water down or speak in a politically correct way OR send people for depression medication BEFORE praying for his saving power of Christ and his applied blood for any affirmation man can give me.

When you begin to break curses, you must memorize the word of God to be able to withstand the warfare you will get. 

The first verse I memorized was Luke 10:19. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

I was in bondage and was not obeying the word of God, so this diluted my identity seriously. You always begin with what the word of God is clear is sin. This is what I believe is the “acceptable” will of God. First level. You are going to repent and walk away from known sin. You are going to master your body which is the temple of God, break curses and choose to be conformed to your identity in Christ so you can fit into the body and be a blessing.

Client example:

Barb (name changed) was co-pastoring with her husband and was stuck. She had gained about 30 pounds, was now suffering with what she felt was depression and felt resentful of people in her life that she had served and had abandoned her leaving a big mess for her and her husband ministry wise. The results she wanted was to lose the weight, end the feelings of victimization and gain a fresh vision for the next season.

We started with two weeks of deliverance prayers, and I fasted with her as she repented for un-forgiveness, blaming others for victimizing her and using food as a coping tool rather than the presence of God. (This happens all the time to Pastors. The weight of ministry can be crushing at times, and they frequently don’t have anyone interceding for them on a weekly basis)

I asked her to find a cardio program she could invest 4 hours a week into for three months. She chose biking and signed up for a race literally that month. Her prayer time and cardio came first before anything else ministry wise. At this point, she realized she had not been setting very clear boundaries around her personal space and discovered she had let a couple of people create guilt/manipulate her. We then broke a “Jezebel” spirit off of her. I teach extensively on this in my leadership team. Without her asking, these two women who were sucking her dry, left the church because they said they weren’t “getting fed.”

When this was done, we began to work on crafting her vision for the next season. She discovered she wanted to speak more and create a deeper discipleship program. So she began to write that curriculum. She also began to receive opportunities “suddenly” to speak. I touch base with her yearly, and she is still growing. Every time I speak to her, she thanks me for praying, fasting and helping her recover her vision.

The bottom line is when you feel constricted, limited and you have lost vision; you’re oppressed. You need support, to break curses and craft a smoking hot vision to serve.

Breaking into new seasons requires a lot of focus. Remember, start with known sin in your life and in your family. That’s the first ground you take. Stay focused until you gain victory. Leave me a comment on my blog and let me know what you think!
