Get up from your place of weakness. Get up from your place of poverty. Get up from your place of regret and sorrow. Rise up child of God! Stop believing the lies from satan that you have gotten so old, lost your strength, and that there is no hope for you. Every day, and even moment by moment, I renew your strength like that of an eagle. And I want you to believe it, confess it, and live it because it is true. I am within your body, soul, and spirit, renewing and re-recreating you every moment of the day. Rise up My child!

Rise up and come into My presence. I will open your eyes, and show you things that the enemy tried to hide in darkness. I am ever so faithful to keep My word, and I will cause you to walk in My strength. I will cause you to walk in the power of My anointing and purpose. Lift up those hands that hang down in weakness, and dry the tears from your eyes. Rise up and I will lead you through this trial just like before, and bring you through to victory, for I am the God who triumphs.

I say to you, be no more a victim, nor be angry with your brothers and sisters. Have no accusation against anyone. These things, the enemy will use to hold you in darkness. Instead, I want you to bless them and pray for them, for it is My desire for you to be at peace with everyone. It is My desire that you love them and have compassion for them, because you are a child of the One who laid down His life.

Now, stand to your feet. Loose yourself from the strongholds of the enemy. Shake off the dust of defeat, for it is a new day! Rise up! Rise up; give Me the praise for what I have done, and what I am doing. Rise up I say and live victoriously!

"I had been in somewhat of a spiritual slump when I was asked to review Shh...God's Trying to Tell You Something: Speak Lord, I'm Listening, the new devotional journal by Christian author Shearon Hurst. Well, it was just what the Great Physician ordered to heal me from the blues and rekindle my passion to perform God's work and will. In a voice that is divinely inspired,

Shearon writes a daily love letter from God, cites spot-on Scriptures, and then leaves room for readers to write how they can become better obedient to His word and thereby receive the blessings that were designed just for them. Two thumbs up for this inspiring work––followed by both hands held high in praise of the Lord Jesus Christ."    
- Tom Siebert, Christian Editor Connection.

Are you in a spiritual slump?  It's time to break free. Pick up a copy of Shh! God Is Trying To Tell You Something, and allow the words of encouragement to revive you with refreshing words from the Lord. Come, spend some time meditating with the Father, and allow Him to rekindle your peace and joy. He is waiting to talk with you. Say, speak Lord, your servant is listening, and get ready to hear what He has to say.

There’s a story about how in ancient times, a king had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he would hide and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Most people came by and simply walked around it. Others loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but no one did anything about getting the big stone out of the way.  Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. On approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road.

After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. As he picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse laying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. This man learned what many others never understand. Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve one's condition.

Are you ready for this?  What is it that you are going through today? What is it that is trying your patience, getting on your last nerve? What obstacle is blocking your way? There is a reason for everything that you are going through. Stop right now where you are, and give God the praise, give Him the glory and shout HALLELUJAH for allowing you to be the vessel He has chosen this day to be glorified through.

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. (1Pe 4:12-13)

Oh, praise His Holy name for another opportunity for the Lord to be glorified in what you are going through. God wants you to count it all joy this day. Knowing this, that the trying of your faith (that obstacle) worketh patience. So, all the while they are working your last nerve, you are being perfected. Therefore, let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. (James 1:2-4). That’s right, the more that obstacle blocks your way, the more you are being blessed. Don't try to avoid it, don't ignore it. That obstacle is your stepping stone to victory. Count it all joy, and praise your way right through it, right on to your blessing.

God says, always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. (1 Thes. 5:16-18). For this trial of your faith is much more precious than of gold that perisheth. Tried with fire, you want to be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: (1 Pet.1:7).

So, is that obstacle still there? You know what to do with it; that’s right count it all joy.

You’ve become tired because of the stumbling blocks you keep running into. You've sought many approaches to be successful, but the frustration of not being able to overcome the stumbling blocks, is causing your heart to hurt. You’re a little weary of seeking which way to go, and finding the place where you belong. Now, you are wondering, what’s the use of trying? Is what I’m going through worth all of this?

My child, your work is not in vain, and what you’re going through has a purpose. Why don’t you take some time to rest your mind. Get your spirit settled and remain calm. Be steadfast, and don’t be moved by what you see, because I have a place that is perfectly suited for you. Step back from what you’ve been doing and seek Me for new strategies.

As you seek Me, spend some time counting your many blessings, and you will see what I have already done in your life. Counting your blessings will remind you that My word is true, and will help you overcome those stumbling blocks in your way. Counting your blessings will also bring peace to your spirit and calmness of mind. And when your mind is at peace, you will realize that what you’re going through is worth it, because you’re going through it for Me.

Psalms 25:4-5 "Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long.

John 13:7 Jesus replied, "You don't understand now what I am doing, but someday you will."

1 Corinthians 15:58 "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord."
