Trust the Process (Philippians 4:13) - MANIFESTATION
Good Morning!!! Bless the Lord oh my soul, and all that is within me. Bless His Holy Name!!! From the heart and spirit of Sister Juan in this year of 2020 sharing a few “Juan” words today, and the Word of the Lord. Remembering God’s attributes, and with a sacred heart desiring to stay on one accord with Him.
This month’s topic “MANIFESTATION”, wow. Some may say this is a big word. Well we have a big God, and His Word (Philippians 4:3) that says “I (we) can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (us)”
So I did a little research on Manifestation, I read that the spiritual meaning of manifestation is the public display of emotion or feeling, or something theoretical made real. Manifestation's origins are in religion and spirituality because if something spiritual becomes real, it is said to be a manifestation. The word's usage has spread to include all aspects of life.
I also read what it means to manifest something…that it is a formal way to say that something is apparent to the senses and is synonymous with evident, apparent, or clear. If you have strong feelings about something, they will be manifest on your face (wow, can I relate to this statement).
Then I read that there are seven steps to Manifest anything you desire….Step 1: Get clear on what you want; Step 2: Ask the universe (I say.. Ask the Lord, Jesus and the Holy Spirit); Step 3: Work toward your goals; Step 4: Trust the process; Step 5: Receive and acknowledge what you get; Step 6: Keep Your Vibration High, and Step 7: Clear your resistance. (Steps 4 and 7 spoke to me)
Finally, and above all, I read, studied, and prayed on:
1 Corinthians 12:7-11 (NIV)
Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
I pray that you ponder on these thoughts, and bring on many manifestations to include, Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Faithfulness, Gentleness and self-control. Bring them in your life as well as others.
Now may the Love of God be with you, the peace of Jesus maintain you and the Holy Spirit restrain you. In Jesus Name and For His Sake. Can I get an “AMEN” "AMEN" "AMEN”!!!
Peace and Blessings Persistently,
