YOU'RE IN A SEASON WHERE THE LORD HAS STRATEGICALLY
MOVED SOME PEOPLE OUT OF YOUR LIFE, SO THAT HE CAN
BRING NEW AND GODLY CONNECTIONS INTO YOUR LIFE, YOUR
NEW CIRCLE AND ARENA OF FELLOWSHIP. GOD HAS FOR THE
PAST FEW MONTHS BEEN ALTERING YOUR RELATIONSHIPS.
THE ONE'S THAT HE INTENDS FOR YOU TO KEEP, HE HAS BEEN
STRENGTHENING THEM, AND THOSE THAT HE INTENDED FOR
YOU TO DISASSOCIATE YOURSELF FROM, THEY HAVE BEEN
FADING AND FADING AND FADING AWAY. GOD KNOWS WHO IS
RIGHT FOR YOU. HE ONLY WANTS TO KNOW THAT YOU LOVE
HIM MORE, EVEN MORE THAN ANYONE OR ANYBODY ELSE. HE
HAS BEEN ESTABLISHING A CONNECTION ANOINTING IN YOUR
LIFE. HE HAS BEEN REMOVING THE OLD AND MAKING WAY
FOR THE NEW. HE DOES NOT ALWAYS WANT TO RESTORE
ALL OF YOUR OLD RELATIONSHIPS, BUT HE WANTS TO BRING
NEW, FRESH, KINGDOM RELATIONSHIPS INTO YOUR LIFE. IF
THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT YOU HAD DID NOT SURVIVE THE
FIRE, THEN THEY WERE NOT ORDAINED BY GOD. ANYTHING
THAT GOD PUTS TOGETHER CAN AND WILL SURVIVE THE FIRE
AND THE TESTS OF TIME. WHAT GOD ESTABLISHES AND
ORDAINS IS FOREVER.
(ECCLESIASTES 3:14) YOU MUST NOW
TRUST GOD IN ALL YOUR RELATIONSHIPS AND IN ALL OF YOUR
NEW ENDEAVORS. YOU MUST TRUST WHERE HE'S TAKING YOU
TO IN LIFE. THERE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE LEFT YOUR
LIFE BECAUSE GOD HAD TO REMOVE THEM TO PROTECT
YOUR DESTINY, YOUR ZEAL, YOUR FIRE, YOUR FUTURE, YOUR
ANOINTING, AND EVERYTHING THAT HE HAS PURPOSED AND
PLANNED FOR YOUR LIFE. THEY HAD TO LEAVE. THEY WERE
ORDERED AND COMMANDED BY GOD TO LEAVE. GOD MOVED
SOME PEOPLE OUT OF YOUR LIFE BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT
A PART OF YOUR DESTINY. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY SHOULD
NOT BE A PART OF YOUR FUTURE. FURTHERMORE, THEY ARE
NOT GOING WHERE YOU ARE GOING, AND THEY CAN NOT GO
WHERE YOU ARE GOING. SURE THEY'RE GOOD PEOPLE, BUT
THEY ARE NOT A PART OF YOUR PURPOSE OR YOUR DESTINY.
ANYTHING OR ANYBODY THAT IS NOT A PART OF YOUR
DESTINY, OR THAT IS NOT GOING WHERE YOU ARE GOING IS A
HINDRANCE. ABRAHAM HAD TO FIRST SEPARATE FROM LOT
IN ORDER FOR THE LORD TO SPEAK TO HIM AGAIN WITHOUT
DISTRACTION, CONCERNING THE NEXT INSTRUCTIONS FOR
HIS LIFE PURPOSE AND DESTINY.
(GENESIS 13:1-12, 14-18)
ABRAHAM HAD THIS HAPPEN TO HIM MANY OTHER TIMES IN
HIS LIFE, BECAUSE HE WAS SET APART FOR THE LORD'S USE
AND WILL. WHEN HE BEGAN TO WALK WITH GOD, HE HAD TO
SEPARATE FROM HIS FAMILY BECAUSE GOD WANTED TO
START A NEW FAMILY, A NEW RACE, AND A NEW NATION OUT
OF HIM.
(SEE GENESIS 12:1-2) HIS NEW FAMILY STARTED WITH
HIS WIFE SARAH.
(SEE GENESIS 12:4-5) ALONG THE WAY ON
HIS LIFE'S JOURNEY, HE ALSO HAD TO SEPARATE FROM
HAGAR AND ISHMAEL, HIS SON AND SERVANT WIFE.
(LOOK AT
GENESIS 21:5-14)
SO IT IS WITH EVERYONE IN YOUR LIFE. HE
HAD CALLED FOR A SEPARATION FROM SOME THINGS AND
CERTAIN PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE. EVERYONE THAT HAS BEEN IN
YOUR LIFE HAS EITHER BEEN A BRIDGE TO YOU OR A BURDEN
TO YOU. THE BRIDGES WILL REMAIN BECAUSE THEY HELP YOU
TO CROSSOVER IN LIFE TO ANOTHER SIDE OF GOD'S WILL
AND PLANS FOR YOUR LIFE. HOWEVER, THE ANOINTING THAT
IS ON YOUR LIFE WILL REMOVE THE BURDENS AND ALL THE
DISTRACTIONS OR UNPRODUCTIVE RELATIONSHIPS. WE ARE
IN THE LAST HOUR, AND GOD DOES NOT HAVE TIME TO WASTE
ANYMORE. THEREFORE, HE HAS CALLED YOU AND HE HAS TO
USE YOU RIGHT NOW IN THIS SEASON TO GET ALL OF HIS END
TIME WORK ACCOMPLISHED. MANY WERE CALLED, BUT YET
SO MANY WERE UNWILLING TO ANSWER THE CALL. THANKS
BE TO GOD THAT HE CALLED AND CHOSE YOU, AND YOU HAVE
ANSWERED THE CALL.
(MATTHEW 22:14, ROMANS 11:29)
