1O KEYS THAT WILL HELP YOU "PROTECT" WHAT HE HAS SHOWN YOU .
1.Don't doubt it . why? 2 Cor 3:5 (Amp) Answers that "Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God,".
2."Immediately" receive it . Why? Satan is right there to" immediately" steal it . Mark 4:15"And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts."
3.Write the vision - It sticks in your heart/mind , when it is written . Hab 2:2(NLT)"Then the LORD said to me, "Write my answer plainly on tablets, so that a runner can carry the correct message to others." .you know my brother's in the lord saw my vision on my wall sometime , wow , they laughed me to scorn , so much , that tears was coming out of their eyes . but I know what He has shown me and guess what ? I laughed at them too , because I know the God I believe and worship. Amen.
4.Remind God always about it with thanksgiving and joy . Isaiah 43:26"Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified."
5. Keep not silence , that God knows about it . lol. Error! . Disturb Him , you have His permission .Isaiah 62:7 (ISV)"and give him no rest until he prepares, establishes and makes Jerusalem a song of praise throughout the earth."
6.Get ready for the shame and mockery. But here is the key as taught by Jesus , despise it and keep your focus on Jesus our hope of glory . Heb 12:2(Amp)"Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God."
7. Romans 12:12 (NIV) is a weapon that will protect the vision any day . "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
8.Joy is a force that draws in the vision into manifestation everyday . Never lose your joy .Never ! Why ? Joel 1:12 "The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men."
9. Faith sustains the picture . work on your faith constantly . Why ? Heb 11:1 (NLT)"Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see."
10. Practice the art to "only believe". Luke 8:50"But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole". Listen , belief is simply a thought in your mind .Hold on to the picture in your mind , it is real . Amen.
BONUS : Patience - God is never in a hurry. Don't be anxious about it . Roms 15:5
PRAYER :Father teach me how to wait upon you in Jesus name , Amen.
It is Done ! Jesus is lord .
