Today we’re looking at the last hindrance to fulfilling your goals that the Lord showed me on New Year’s Day. The third thing that God showed me which holds us back from reaching our potential and fulfilling His vision for our lives is:
3. Insufficient ability or resources
We are blessed because we are in Christ. If God has already given us every spiritual blessing, how much more blessing do we need? We have (past tense) already been (past tense) blessed (past tense) with every (not just some) spiritual blessing. We don’t need more blessing than we already have. We need to realize what we already have in Christ and learn how to access it.
You might say, “but that’s spiritual blessing, not a physical one. And why can I see lack in my life?”. Yes, we are blessed with every blessing in our spirits, but we can withdraw that blessing and experience it in the physical, too! God is a spirit (John 4:24) and He spoke the world and everything in it, into being (Psalm 33:9; Hebrews 11:3). The spiritual precedes the physical realm. With creation, the physical came from the spiritual, and it came through words. That’s why the words we speak are so important! Our words contain the power to create life and cause death (Proverbs 18:21). Jesus showed us that speaking in faith releases faith and power to heal the sick, cast out demons and move mountains (Mark 11:20-24). He also said that we’d have whatever we said. Most often we are not experiencing the blessing that already belongs to us in Christ because we aren’t using faith-filled words to release the provision that already exists in the spiritual into the physical.
God will never give you a vision to accomplish in your own power, strength and ability. Through the Holy Spirit, we have supernatural power to accomplish supernatural things. The Holy Spirit divinely enables us to do great things for God. He teaches us all things (John 14:26) and leads us in truth (John 16:13).
We have everything we need to do what we are called to do!
