Positive Directions

Sometimes in life, it seems as if we need direction. We are not sure about which way to turn. Some decisions that we make can be life changing. They can set us in the correct direction for success. One wrong decision can set us back in life.

You must put God first in your life. Acknowledge him in all your ways and he will direct your path. Learn to praise him through your circumstances. Take you mind off of the problem. Put your focus on the one who can change things for your good. Put you focus on Jesus.

Negative words can bring death to any situation. Begin to speak life into your situation. You shall live and not die. You have the power to change things by speaking to your situation.

The Prophet Ezekiel was obedient to God. In Ezekiel 37:1-14, he followed prophesied to a dead situation and it turned completely around.
37 The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.
4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
5 Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

What is the Lord commanding you to speak life into? He will never ask a question that he does not know the answer to. Your trials and tribulations are your tests. If he did it before, he Can do it again. Change your thinking. Do not give the enemy a foothold. You are going to get through your situation. Ask for direction, and you will receive direction.

The Lord always answers prayers. You will receive so much more than you asked for. Your words and faith in God can turn your struggles into fuel for your destiny.

Be Blessed.
