Overcoming Heaviness

”I got nothing else to do today but to rise” 🔺𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐂𝐔𝐓

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3 KJV

The presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives gives us a unique advantage over every life situation we face each day. Thanks be unto our Lord Jesus Christ who always leads us to unprecedented victories in life.

God wants to free some space within your spirit so you can soar up with him into the realms of unlimited possibilities. Heaven breathes tremendous benefits of Gods goodness for each day. The steadfast love of the Lord are new every morning. So you don’t need yesterday’s grace to face today. Today, there’s so much to download, freely. This is what the Apostle Paul calls ”grace sufficient.”

Have you ever felt a sudden outburst of praise [songs of victory and adoration] from the depths of your heart, and it felt so good and freeing like you were singing with angelic beings, unashamed but full of life? Did you observed how it impacted your day? Maybe you were not even conscious of what transpired in the realms of the spirit. You were at the centre of Gods throne, accessing unlimited grace and kindness for your life or much more than that.

Anytime we experience this kind of explosion of joy, the Holy Spirit is either removing a dark garment of burdens from our souls or we are being set up for an uncommon spiritual breakthrough through this spiritual system of outsourcing power from God as we acknowledge his worth via spiritual songs. The Holy Spirit of God uses the medium of spirit songs through human vessels, to exalt his power and glory above all powers to shatter the realms of the enemies agencies against our lives. We then experience open heavens in every facet of our lives. This is one of the ways we grow in victory over heaviness and all kinds of infirmities in the kingdom.

In the spiritual dimensions, one of the elements Satan uses to limit the believer from walking in authentic joy, and peace which surpasses human knowledge is by clothing the soul of the believer with heaviness.

Heaviness is a form of an invisible garment that suddenly encloses the soulish realm [intellect, intuition, emotions, will] of the believer in order to overpower him with the eerie feeling of lethargy, doubts, hopelessness, uneasiness, emptiness, weariness, the sadness of heart, guilt, condemnation and despair in order to break him down completely.

Are you dealing with sudden heaviness? Do you feel like there is a weight on your spirit, and maybe words are not enough to describe your condition? Friend, the realms of darkness is waging a serious war against your destiny. Satan wants to make you lose hope in God. So he bugs your mind with a series of negative thoughts which will seriously impact your actions. There is no joy, no hope, no strength, life is blurry— it is as if the universe is on your shoulders. This is a common battle of the believer.

Thank God there’s grace to break free from this prison. Here is the good news… God promises us in his word that he will remove this evil garment from our spirit and clothe us with joy so that our lives could glorify him. Do you want your life to glorify God. You know a life of heaviness cannot express the greatness of God. So if you want heaven to receive glory through your life then Believe God today, according to Isaiah 61:3.

He is saying to you; ”give me space of belief, to release upon your spirit the garment of praise.” Surely, the Lord will take away that spirit of heaviness which suddenly wraps itself around you. This will not break you apart, and even if you’re at the edge of shame and impossibility of life he can alter the situation for your good. You will be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord. Yes, your situation will change.

Your feet shall not be removed from your firm places, because your spirit has been touched by grace, through faith. Trust in the promises of His word today. Your God will not disappoint you. He’s a rewarder. He is pouring the oil of joy over your head, crowning you with beauty instead of ashes. Change is here. Change is now!! Hallelujah!!

𝐏𝐑𝐀𝐘𝐄𝐑: Let’s pray; “Yahweh, I thank you for touching my soul with life, and for clothing me with praise instead of mourning. By faith you’ve turned my mourning into dancing, and my ashes for beauty. I praise you because you’ve dispelled the spirit of heaviness from my spirit and have clothed me with blessings, in the name of your son Jesus. Thank you for being in charge. By your name I command the power of heaviness to be lifted completely from my spirit, serving the Lord with joy” Amen

𝐀𝐏𝐏𝐋𝐈𝐂𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍: Take some few minutes of your time and just be thankful to the Lord for victory over this evil mechanism of Satan and tell Him specifically of your worries. You can also pray in the spirit or listen to good gospel music if you’ve no particular reason why you’re down. Don’t approve or endorse your worries. It is not of the Lord. Take charge over your spirit today by speaking the words of Isaiah 61:3 over your life. Rise up and dance if you have to. This is how we elevate in the Kingdom.
