Thoughts from Stronghold Savvy --Bobbie Houston
Bobbie Houston at Hillsong women continued and finished her series on Stronghold Savvy last Thursday and today.
To me the strongholds are like garden, good strongholds are like flowers, and the bad strongholds are like the weeds.
Last week's focus was the decision and choice as to which stronghold you're gonna allow in your life. You can do nothing and just allow all the weeds grow and overtaken the flowers and live with a messy weedy garden, or you can choose to plant in the good flowers, get rid of all the weeds, and await for a beautiful garden to flourish.
Every little deed counts. If you don't stop the weeds, the weeds will grow and spread. It takes force and action. The action has its chains, one action followed by another action; no action, no result. Every good decision is like planting a flower. Looking at the future, looking at the result, and decide which way you want to go, and follow that decision. When you've made the right choices, then you've set yourself on the track, and you can be like Proverb31:25 "She smiles at the future."
This week Bobbie Houston continues on that foundation, and focused on the discipline that's required to get to our future destiny.
To get your flowers to grow properly, you need to know how everything works, you need to know the rules and follow those rules. The Lord gives us wisdom to live our lives, and we need to diligently follow those wisdom to allow ourselves to grow. One simple word... You've got to do things right!
In following the wisdom, we also need to have discerment. Recognise and examine whether the voices are from the Holy Spirit or the enemy. Use the blood, the Word and the truth to resist the enemy, but respond and put into action to the voice of your inner concience or the Holy Spirit. If you failed and made a mess, don't worry, there's always a place and home for the prodigal son. Don't give up on yourself, just return, the Lord says,"My grace is sufficient for you."
