A woman of God said so profoundly, and I quote, “You are not ready for destiny until you can sit at the table with your friend and Judas and treat them both the same! Don’t move Judas’s seat!” Thank you Dr. Yvonne Capehart!
Have you ever asked the Lord WHY? My God from Zion! In this season of ministry I have asked Him Lord WHY? I see your hand, yet the more sacrifice, the more attacks. Has your character, integrity, and morals ever been challenged? Have you ever been falsely accused? Yet, you have to stand firm and still smile in the faces of your enemies. If you haven’t it’s a part of the process. You leave your familiar place, your kindred, and acquaintances and journey to a foreign land just as the Lord has led many to do. You may often sit Sunday, and Wednesday and wonder is this truly a part of my destiny. Have you felt that your spirit man crying out on the inside, yet you can’t shed tears because you’re constantly being critiqued, watched, and criticized. Lord, why can’t I move Judas’s seat? You can;t move Judas’s seat Trudy because your destiny is tied to how you handle the betrayal of the Judas’s in your walk with me! I have had so-called Sisters in Christ betray me! I had them smile in my face yet, try strive all they could to take my place….. But God!!! I knew when they were revealed that meant that my season is getting closer! I stood firm, and didn’t allow the enemy to make me move from my place of authority! The Lord allowed me to walk through it! Oh yes, I cried, prayed, fasted, even thought about going thug gangster on them, getting my pose, yes i said it! Yet the Holy Ghost that resides on the inside says, “vengeance is mine saith the Lord, I will repay!”
He’s allowed me to see his repayment.
Have you heard of the School of Spiritual Hard Knocks? Let me tell you about it. This school doesn’t require an orientation session, it just requires you accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal savior! That is the first semester! Don’t you get filled with the Holy Ghost, that’s when you have something on the inside that the enemy recognizes and will challenge your character, he’s not worried about your gift because those come without repentance! Your leading praise and worship, singing on the choir, and ushering in the board aren’t threats to the devil! You may even acknowledge the call to preach! Well, you’re walking a little bit heavier now! Fasting and praying, and dwelling in the secret place of the most High God and see what begins to happen. I pray for others more than I pray for myself! Here come some more trials and tribulations. Lord, I am striving to live Holy, and I know I’m living right. Well, you’re ready your another exam by this point! Whew, what a journey this has been!!! My how time flies when you’re pressing towards destiny!!!
Don’t you dare quit! Don’t you dare give up! Don’t you dare walk away! I’m not let’s keep “Pressing Towards Destiny”
