Know: Know your teacher’s voice. He is head of the class. Teachers are very observant of their students. Alternatively, a stranger’s voice, you will not follow. Your teacher has been with you from the beginning of the course. You are aware of His formal introduction He made into your life. His lesson plans were challenging. His grading system was off the rector scale, never have you seen such a system. To pass, you have to get to know Him. Your thesis report is due at the end of the course, birthed from experience entitled: “A season word can make the harsh winds of life cease.” God will silence the wind for you, so that you can hear its voice. Remember your Teacher’s instructions: Your Bible (syllabus) is to be followed to pass your test. You Bible (syllabus) prepared for you in advance. The teacher has ordained and planned the lessons for you. Now, you can be prepared to engage in whatever is required of you. Do you remember His assignments? Read, read, read. Study, study, and study. Apply, apply, and apply. Yep, that is the recipe. Apply it and watch how things begin to work out for you.
Faith: Use this application and pass! Take what has been deposited in you and apply it! You were boldly and fearfully made. Just breathe. Live. You already passed, see it, believe it, and receive it. You are the certain person, who has endured and now is ready to reap the benefits of your destiny with accrued interest.Be aware when the student is ready, the Teacher will come. He knows you. He will come, since you are His and He takes care of His own. The Lord is our confidence. Now you can rest because your sleep will be sweet and not bitter. Go ahead and rest now. Take your test and pass. Remember, you were taught by the best.
Communication is one of the key components to making a relationship work. Non-verbal gestures and expression shows first than verbal (what you say). Our non-verbal gestures and expressions speak louder than our words. Does this sound familiar to you? Actions speak louder than words. What you show a person is how the perceive you. We cannot remiss our non-verbal of which is prevalent, or as important as what we say. What are we communicating to people, as well as to God?
Is your communication good? Getting there? Disconnected? Your relationship with God determines, where you are spiritually, as well as physical, since the two are connected. If there is discord with you spiritual side, there is discord with God. God knows it, your spirit knows and guess what—so do you. I can see your eyes lightening up now. Stay with me here. Your actions are indicative to your emotions. Some signs are isolating from your love ones, eating excessively, lashing at people, lack of energy, and not attending your favorite functions, and even reneging on responsibilities.
These are indicators of your emotions. You are silently crying, but there is something inside of you that prevents you to cry. You must maintain the façade of being “the strong one.” I can hear you. Your cries are stronger in the stillness of the night. I can hear you. You try to muffle. Your whimpers drown in the pillows. Time elapsed, exhaustion claims you and your body starts to shake uncontrollably from the coldness within you. You glance at everything around you. It shows that the world has not stopped rotating, and life still continues.
Your tears are now dry, but the pain subsides. Foolishly, you do not want anyone to know about your tears. You hail them as a weakness. Cover them! Coverup roles is most exhausting to me. Literally, I watched people cover their emotional and physical pains, only to see it takes a negative effect on their bodies, spirits, and social relationships. It takes certain ones to face the truth. Moreover, we can handle the truth, both boldly and admirably. You are God’s certain one, and He loves you.
You can leave the excess baggage at the baggage claim. Release the pain and give it to God. Release it! It does not belong to you. Do not believe you cannot have a great quality of life. Healing starts with you! I Moreover, I affirm, there are pastors and leaders who are FBI agents for Christ. FBI are Freedom Believing Individuals, who work for you. These FBI agents for the Lord, go in their prayer closets to pray for you, proceed with spiritual fasts for you, intercede and trust God will bring restoration, healing, or blessings for you, and believe for you. For you! Yes, to be free from your strongholds.
