We are in the middle of a pandemic and we can’t keep looking back at pre-Covid-19. If we look up to Jesus, the author and the finisher of our faith, He will show us how to prepare for post-pandemic. This season is a time of being in a cocoon. We have not been able to move around as usual. We have been in an amputated state. When we come out, if we have prepared, we will have wings like the butterfly. We will not need legs. Some of the support systems that we lean on are not providing what we are used to. We had to develop our faith and cultivate our gift. We will not need the things we needed pre-pandemic. Our fruit will be displayed. Our ashes will be turned to beauty. We will be like that eagle and be able to soar above all of the noise and the chatter.
We will have a greater glory. Our voices will not be silenced but amplified. Moses would go to the cocoon of the mountain to be transformed with the radiance of the Glory. We are in the cocoon of the pandemic with our voices muffled. Look for victory to meet you post-pandemic because goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life. I encourage you not to look in the rearview mirror of pre-pandemic. Look to the post-pandemic view through your spiritual eyes in panorama view. We have to be able to see in the dark.
There are times God wants us to move forward, but we keep looking back. It will be advantageous to look into the rearview mirror and look at the windshield’s panorama view.
Sometimes He moves people out of our lives that remind us of the former glory. He wants our latter glory to be greater than our former glory.
If God says disconnect, we should say YES. He has a plan to connect us elsewhere.
“Therefore let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” -Hebrews 12:1-2 ASV
Weights and sin will slow us down in this season. We have to lay them down. When you are running a race, you can’t have baggage. The runner who races wears the least amount of clothes as possible. This gospel needs to be shared so people can give their life to Christ. Some people’s clocks are ticking down. Their life could be taken if we don’t get to some.
Tighten up all bolts and screws in 2021. These in the natural have a purpose. If they are sitting around, they have no use. There are tools to put these in place. I had a vision of seeing items and I immediately knew what they were. I asked God what was He showing me? He desires that every joint supply joints. He desires for the whole body to be fitly joined together in His love. Every screw, bolt, and joint must be tightly fitted. If your screw becomes loose, the item will come apart if the weight becomes too heavy. If you have too much weight in the spirit realm, your life begins to come apart through you being emotional and only focusing on what you are going through. The people you are assigned will be lacking. They may start to come apart.
In 2021 El Shaddai has to be enough for us. He is the all-sufficient One. We just want Him more than we want to travel and go out to eat. We must trust Him as the supplier, the satisfier, and the blesser. Globally the world has become consumed with entertainment and pleasure-seeking for our souls. We love to center what we do around eating at restaurants. We fatten our bodies and our purses but do not fatten our spirits. David wrote the following psalm:
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” – Psalms 103:2-5 KJV
When we command our souls to bless the Lord in 2021, we will tap into His benefits. The Lord benefits can’t be purchased with money. They have already been paid for when Jesus went to the cross Selah.
