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
for you.

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.
