Your Defining Moment

Amanda AcreeBy Amanda Acree4 Minutes

Are you facing an insurmountable obstacle today? A mountain so large you feel helpless in its face?

If so, please know you are not alone. Don’t even let that lie enter your thoughts. Instead, let the overwhelming truth of God’s goodness and presence wash over you. This mountain in front of you will be thrown into the sea.

Even if this chapter of your life sends out waves of fear, be encouraged, the battle is the Lord’s! If you could see the end of this chapter, you would be amazed at what God is doing in your life. His power is breaking down strongholds, and He is destroying anything meant to take you and your family down.

God is laughing at the plans of the enemy even while the storm is raging. Just picture it. The devil thinks a bad report, pain, discomfort, or fear will disrupt your faith, but you are one of God’s anointed, covered in the blood of Jesus, and full of God’s own Spirit. I tell you, the end of this present trial is so beautiful, so precious, so full of love that you will look back and say, “I wouldn’t have had it any other way.” The refining and restoration that come because of the conflict in this chapter of your life are supremely supernatural.

Friend, this is a defining moment for you. The goodness of our God, the redemption of our King, is about to be revealed fully in your life and family. The prayers you have been praying for your loved ones have stirred Heaven with your faith. Hold on to the last scene of this chapter and the beauty of the next chapters in your life with hope and expectation.

Let this be your personal PENTECOST – the appointed season of your transforming, miraculous breakthrough by the Spirit of God. There’s a reason the Holy Spirit seeks a perpetual home in your heart. He passionately wants to…
