Focus on the Goal and Have Confidence in Your Swing When Contrary Winds Blow Your Way. The Holy Spirit is saying, "It will get better"...
I spoke to a manager just briefly about having confidence in God. He tried to relate it to his golf swing, saying that if he died today he hoped he played his best game, so to speak. I told him I understood, as we want to give our best and keep our focus. He then mentioned his golf game and I gave him a brief analogy how serving God is like perfecting your swing. Contrary winds will come, obstacles on the course, etc., but as long as you perfect your swing/stance, i.e. you're grounded confidently in God, you can make the necessary adjustments.
In this life, know that winds will blow. The world is going through transition and chaos. People are attacking each other and warring in the flesh because we're in the last days and the devil WANTS people offended. Don't fall for his games. When you retaliate, you block block your blessings. When you speak words in cursing, hate, or unforgiveness back to the person, you can sabotage your blessings and cause a tormenting spirit to come to you. That's why Jesus wants us to walk in love, healing, and forgiveness. The attitudes, the hate, the negativity. None of that matters. Rebuke satan and don't play his games.. Stand still, hold your peace and God will fight for you and make the way. The enemies you see today you won't see anymore. Your steps are ordered by the Lord and you can focus on the goal, follow through, and finish strong.
We pray, "Lord, please align my purpose with your will. Program my mind so I can focus on forward. Help me stand firm on your Word despite the obstacles or what it looks like. Give me your strength and encouragement and help me finish strong, in Jesus's name, amen."
