I Have Nothing MORE to Say! - Romans 8:31

I have nothing MORE to say!
Romans 8:31
What, then, shall we say in response to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us?

Click Logo to LISTEN NOW!!!



Greetings!
BlogFam, when it is time for you to move on, there are some conversations that must cease and certain conversation partners whose season has come to an end.

 
This is one area that I have been tested and tried in over and over again.  I have learned to appreciate the reality that as I move forward toward fulfilling God’s purpose for my life, I have to watch my mouth!  And not only do I have to watch my own mouth, but I also have to be mindful of the mouths I allow into my space.  I have grown to the place where there are certain conversations that will NOT happen on topics that are not up for discussion and with people whose ideas and opinions do not deserve my attention.  This is a hard lesson to learn. 


It is not easy to look yourself in the mirror or to hear the Spirit nudging you to JUST BE QUIET!  The instruction in James to STUDY to BE QUIET is such an invaluable word of wisdom and instruction and so many times we dismiss it.  We do not want to be quiet about certain things.  We want to tell people about the great moves of God in our lives!  We want to testify about the miracles and blessings that are flowing.  We might even want to solicit the saints for prayer, to touch and agree with us for personal challenges we might be facing.  But let me be the one to inform or at least remind you that the TRUTH is this: when it is time for you to move on, there are some conversations that must cease and certain conversation partners whose season has come to an end.
 

Friends, at the very beginning of this series, we read: Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  AND when you are making any positive changes in your life, you will encounter condemnation in the form of insults, opinions, criticisms, undermined attacks disguised as words of wisdom, and jealous rants disguised as fervent prayer.  Now some of the words may sound positive, congratulatory, supportive, helpful, and affirming.  But LISTENERS BEWARE!!!  Do NOT get caught up in the accolades and the pomp and circumstance that certain people lavish upon you because some of those same people will turn to their neighbor and speak all manner of evil against you.  Do NOT get caught up in the rhetoric of admiration or the speeches of congratulations because some of those same people will launch a verbal attack against your future destination.  Do NOT get caught up in hearing the articulation of people singing your praises because those same people are sometimes waiting for your quick descent from this point of elevation.   My sistas and brothas, when it is time for you to move on, there are some conversations that must cease and certain conversation partners whose season has come to an end.
 

Now everybody is NOT like this.  There are some people who are genuinely excited about this next move in your life but others, well, not so much.  AND you know what, you do not need to feel obligated to dignify their attempts to condemn or condone your move with a response…
What, then, shall we say in response to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us?
 

What more do you NEED to say? 


What shall YOU say in response to the many conversations
you will have about this next move? 


Have you set the parameters around what you will and will not discuss? 


Are there certain people that you have intentionally excluded
from this chapter in your life? 


Are there certain things that you will keep between you and the Good Lord
[and maybe your closest and most trustworthy inner circle]?


These are questions upon which we must all reflect and be clear about our own answers.  AND until you are clear and even once you do receive the clarity you need, this holds TRUE: If God is for us, who can be against us?  Friends, the best response to all conversations that push you to your limits, invade your space, shut down your dreams, steal your joy is GOD.  In this next move in your life, you must be ready to respond with a God-filled answer.  There are no exceptions.  Your God-filled answer may demand your silence or it may demand that you speak out your truth but whatever it is, PLEASE be led by the Spirit and do NOT jeopardize God’s move in your life by having conversations with people who could care less or who might vindictively care too much about you or your business. 
 

BlogFam, YOU can do this!  YOU are ready!  It is YOUR time!  And the words of others that contradict what God has already ordained have come to steal, kill, and destroy your momentum, your focus, your excitement, and your confidence. So YOU must be PRO-ACTIVE in PRE-determining your response. For  when it is time for you to move on, there are some conversations that must cease and certain conversation partners whose season has come to an end. AND If God is for YOU, who can be against YOU?  Let GOD guide your every conversation and let God determine the status of every conversation partner.  God is for You but you must surrender your will and your conversation to ONLY what God is for.  YOU can do this!  YOU are ready!  It is YOUR time!  Just keep your mouth in check and YOU will be fine!
 
BlogFam, I have nothing more to say. PEACE.



God Loves You and I do too!
