You betta have a PLAN!! #ComeOnMan #Prophetic #Part 3
When in your wilderness experience, it’s extremely important to have a PLAN! You got to be strategic. You have to think outside of the box. You have to figure out a way to win on purpose and with purpose!
When Jesus was in the wilderness, He prepared himself to win! He was very strategic. He knew that if He was going to come out of this experience victorious, there were things that he HAD to do!
Matthew 4 The Message (MSG)
4 1-3 Next Jesus was taken into the wild by the Spirit for the Test. The Devil was ready to give it. Jesus prepared for the Test by fasting forty days and forty nights. That left him, of course, in a state of extreme hunger, which the Devil took advantage of in the first test: “Since you are God’s Son, speak the word that will turn these stones into loaves of bread.”
Jesus prepared for the test by fasting and praying for 40 days and nights. Many will say that’s a bit extreme. I say… you got to do what you got to do if you expect to go to another level in the things of God. There are sacrifices that have to be made. I say this all the time. It’s so funny how we want next level blessings from God, but we don’t give Him next level sacrifices! Wow…park right there for a sec. If we go back to the scriptures, we see that Jesus had NEVER fasted 40 days and 40 nights before. This was His first time. If He was going to win on purpose, He had to do something that He had NEVER done before! He had to get out of His comfort zone. He had handle the stretching. He had to handle the pull. He had to handle it! He handled it by going to another level in His sacrifice for God!
What are you doing in this wilderness season that will help you go to a whole new level? How are you sacrificing? How are you preparing for the “coming out of the wilderness”?
You see, after Jesus sacrificed and prepared himself, He came out of the wilderness with all POWER in His hands! He came out healing the sick, raising the dead, preaching and teaching the gospel, performing miracles, signs and wonders etc. He came out doing something that He had NEVER done before simply because He did something He had never done before while in the wilderness! Come on now! That will preach! Well, I did preach it…lol! But I’m just saying…..
