A person’s anxiety will weigh him down, but an encouraging word makes him joyful
~ Proverbs 12:25
Normally, watching holiday movies has been one of my favorite comforts this time of year. I always loved the wonders of child-like faith and the happy miracles that would show up to save the day. However, this year has been a little different. They have been playing those nostalgic holiday movies at the place where we stay and I found myself battling anxiety and panic over what will happen. I was constantly needing to excuse myself to go to the bathroom to cry and pray.
After one of my meltdowns, the Lord opened a revelation to me to help me through the misery. He reminded me of a couple of prophetic dreams that He gave me long ago. In one of the dreams, I was with the kids and I started to fly. As I started to fly, everything that I had been desiring from God started to manifest in my arms. At the end of the dream, the Lord said that I had to “die to fly”.
The other dream was I was in a car with Holy Spirit and He was teaching me how to drive by faith. He showed me that we need to never think a negative thought (a fear, doubt, etc, foreboding dread, etc) even to death. Then the Holy Spirit showed me that the term “to die” meant to die to our emotions, fears, thoughts of bad things that could happen, worries about what to do if God’s promises didn’t come true and any other negative way of thinking.
Before going on this journey of seeing His promises produce miracles, He gave a promise (many actually) of a good outcome. His promises are supposed to be where we stay and where we start. Our thoughts need to come to a place where we think His words as our own.
That means in order to fly, we need to take His promises as our own thoughts and cast down every negative thought. And when worry comes in like a flood, we need to “die” to those emotions and refuse to be pulled down the slippery slope of fearful thinking. There are many promises that God gives that we can bring into a constant flow of manifestation. In order to do this, we need to take on His promises in our mind and fly above the oppositions.
I am hoping that this year, my life will resemble one of those heartfelt movies where miracles happen and dreams come true. The good news is God already gave the promise that I needed to see it happen. All He is asking is that we believe. I pray that we are able to “die” to the doubts and fears that try to pull us down from flying into the fulfillment of His miracle promises of a happy outcome.
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:5
