UNDER PRESSURE!! by Joey Rocha
“Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” James 1:2-4 (MSG)
I woke up in the middle of the night to a vision. I saw the scene from the end of the movie Jaws. It was the scene where Sheriff Brody finally kills the shark. In the movie the shark has attacked and devoured everything, including the boat, which is now sinking! Sheriff Brody is going down with the ship. He has a rifle and has one last chance to kill the shark. He is finally able to kill this relentless menace by taking aim and shooting a pressurized oxygen tank that is in the sharks mouth which explodes the shark!
Some of God’s children are under tremendous pressure from trials. The thief has come to kill, steal and destroy. He has relentlessly attacked and has pretty much devoured just about everything. The pressure has been coming from all sides. It has been building and building and for some it seems like even the ship is going down!
I want to encourage you not to give up!
God knows the circumstances you are in. He is aware of the relentless attack of the enemy and has a plan not only to end your suffering but also to bless your future because . . .
We are in a season of TURNAROUND!
You see for many God has allowed the pressure to build on purpose. He has allowed the circumstances to play out in such a way that it forces you to face your enemy head on. He forces you into faith! God wants you to confront your Goliath! It is time to finally face the demons that have been stalking you once and for all! Whatever that may be in your life: generational curses, unforgiveness, finances, sin! What is the demon that God has forced you to confront? Whatever that is God wants you to know that . . .

It is time for your GOLIATH to go down!
Because once this mountain is removed from your life it will clear the path for the destiny God has for you!
The pressure you are under is actually a gift! Use it to your advantage and turn and face your enemy! God has given you the weapon you need to look your attacker in the eye, take aim and pull the trigger (Ephesians 6: 10-17). And when you do there will come an explosion of freedom!
For it is the very pressure of the circumstances you find yourself in that God will use to finally kill off the enemy in your life!
Pull the trigger.
“A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.” John 10:10 (MSG)
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!
