How to go from “Shut Down” to Rising Above!- A Word by Doug Addison
Do you feel as if you’re at a standstill in your life? You may feel like
there are many obstacles in your path with no way to break through them.
This is the enemy trying to shut you down in the spirit. Some of the most
strategic tools in his arsenal are feelings of hopelessness, despair,
discouragement, unbelief, negativity, doubt, etc.
His goal is to shut people down in their minds from pursuing their destiny
before they ever get started!
Your solution to battle this feeling of “shut-down” is being released from
Heaven right now. Here are a few tools to get you started.
Allow God to pinpoint things in your life that need changed
Picture this: The lights are off in your home, but you’re trying to clean
How can you clean your house when the lights are turned off? You can see
much more clearly when you flip on the light!
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1:5 NIV
This is what God wants to do for you. Ask him to “flip on the light” so He
can help you pinpoint what needs to be changed or “cleaned up.”
He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and
light dwells with him. Daniel 2:22 NIV

Rise above the challenges of life
There are times when we have to walk through difficulties in life because
they are challenges the Lord has put before us. This is a time of rising
above the challenges so you can see from God’s perspective what He has
planned for you!
When confronted with obstacles, we may be tempted to start overcoming them
without consulting the Lord on how we should overcome them. Many times, we
need to take a moment of pause so we can rise above life’s obstacles.
After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in
heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet
said, “ Come up here , and I will show you what must take place after this.”
Revelation 4:1 NIV
Notice it was the Lord who gave John the instructions, “Come up here,” or rise above your current situation. Ask God to
show you exactly how He would have you walk through the doors that are open
Don’t allow discouragement to take root in your life
The enemy may be trying his best to discourage you and shut you down, but
you can get through and rise above these attacks by remembering that God
has a destiny and purpose for you! Ask Him to help you further understand
what He has written about you in your Book of Life.
Get ready for God to release angels, strategies, finances and other tools
from Heaven that you need right now.
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
