Are You Stuck?~Minister Darrick D. McGhee

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. Have you ever found yourself doing the same thing expecting a different result? You approached each situation with the same mindset and same defense. You thought you could defeat the enemy by staying quiet, hoping he would think you were invisible. While he was attacking you and your family, in stead of you declaring the Word of God against him, you stood quiet and fearful (2 Timothy 1:7). Have you ever became complacent with your position in life? You just accepted things as they came. You grew accustom to second hand blessings. While God desired to bless you abundantly, you grew comfortable with getting the remains from someone else. Hmmmmmmmm! Have you ever missed the move of God because you expected Him to come the same way each time? You failed to realize He could bless you through someone else, while blessings others through you.

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. Are you content with the way things are in your life? Are you satisfied with just having “barely enough” to make it? My friend, Are You Stuck? Are you in bondage because of a close-minded attitude? Many times we miss many blessings in our lives, or we have doors close in front of us because we grew complacent with life and the way we defined it. To be stuck means to halt the movement or action of something or somone. The Bible declares in Hebrews 12:1 - Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us. There are many people who look blessed and appear blessed in the eyes of man, but (s)he has not experienced a new thing in a long time (Isaiah 43:19). They talk as if slavery still exist. They are bound by the mistakes of their past. They are fearful concerning the events of their future. Are You Stuck? Are you living within a small circle? Each day you go in the same direction. Just as a hamster on the wheel, are you running in place thinking you are making progress?

My brother, my sister, are you further along than you were this time last year? Have you grown since August 4, 2009? Are you still shackled by immature behavior and animosity? The Bible declares in Matthew 16:19 - And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Beloved, Are You Stuck? Have you become dead weight? The Lord desires to use you in awesome ways. He formed you with purpose in mind. Yes you have made mistakes, but so have I. Yes you fell short, but we all have (Romans 3:23). In spite of your shortcomings, God has a plan for your life. He has a mission for you to complete. He has a blue print created with you in mind. It is time for you to get life back in your legs. When you are stuck, your mind is bound and your legs have lost strength. Today, I declare peace in your mind and strength in your legs (Job 22:28) (Acts 3:7). No longer can you or will you be stuck. Prayer for Today: Father, there is work to complete and I am the one You ordained to do it. My time being stuck is over, I am moving forward according to Your will, in Jesus’ name … Amen!

Scripture Reading for Today: Romans 12:2
