The Righteous Take it by Force!

Desperate needs call for desperate measures! I'm sure you've heard the saying. I've mostly heard it as an "excuse" for some radical action taken. Basically to justify the action taken, like stealing or lying for instance. 

I don't want the saying to be an aftermath response, I want it to be your trigger, your motive, in a good way of course. 

I'm reading this book called the "Blueprint" by Kirk Franklin and in it its mentioned that the victorious and prosperous you we see in public, is the result of all the hard work you did in "secret". (I'm paraphrasing). What work is this exactly? The one your knees kind of work. 

If you find yourself in a pressing bind, it's fine to be sad about it. But only for so long. When you can say enough is enough, you need to go in you're prayer closet and take back what the devil stole.

It's not OK to be complacent, it's not OK to only complain. No. You need to sacrifice watching that tv show, or sacrifice a bit of sleep, might even have to sacrifice a night out on the town. You sacrifice these things to spend time in His presence instead. God will honour that sacrifice.

Yes God is all knowing, but the bible says that you should ask for what you want. When God healed the crippled man, He asked him first "Do you want to get well?" (John 5:6). Seemingly obvious I would think, but God wanted him to speak it. So you too need to state your claim before Him. Be like the persistent widow (Luke 18), don't stop until you see what you're praying for come to pass. 

So back to my original point, be desperate enough to make the sacrifice needed to invest quality time before the Lord. Sulking won't cut it. Not trying to sound harsh, but I really want you to succeed and sometimes being blunt about it hits home. It's all in love ladies :)  (Would love to hear the coming testimonies)

Bless and Love Y'all!

Stay Pretty & Precious,
