Firm convictions

The meaning of conviction: A conviction is a strong belief. It is a state or appearance of being convinced. A fixed or firmly held belief.




Without strong settled convictions in our hearts we will find it difficult, or virtually impossible, to move forward in confidence allowing life to evolve in our sphere as God has intended. The enemy of our soul is always after our confidence we have in God and the call and purpose God has on our lives.


God’s purpose is to establish a united heart within us. Unity always represents strength. The enemy’s purpose is to establish a divided heart within us. Division results in weakness. Remember; the enemy is always after our faith wanting to position us in a place of “no reward”!


Faith means reward and the enemy knows this.


Hebrews 11:6 NLT

[6] And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.


The Spirit of God is settling strong convictions in His peoples hearts that would not be worth

tampering with and in no way be compromised with. We are living in the days which calls to stand firm in our convictions.


So many people are asking “Am I at the right place doing the right thing?” “Has the Lord called me for this task?” “Has the Lord called me to stay in this country?” “Has the Lord called me to move to a different country?” “Has the Lord called me to plant this church?”


We know the Lord has a plan and purpose for our individual lives. He has called each one of us to attend to certain matters. To release what we carry in our hearts into the hearts and circumstances of people He called us to.


Each one of us has the responsibility, through our relationship with the Lord, to live out our call. If we have received specific instructions from the Lord we need to stick with them and see them through. If our conviction is not that strong we need to re-evaluate speedily. Asking ourselves; Am I certain I received this instruction from the Spirit of God? If yes; Stick with it and see it through at whatever the cost!


If, on the other hand, we recognise we made a mistake in whatever decision we made, repent before the Lord and allow the Spirit of God to reposition you. We cannot afford to live life in a

state of a heart divided with wavering unsettled convictions. The Lord will always meet us

wherever we are and restore us quickly. Our callings are not that fragile!


Some has taken bold decisions in 2022 and started new projects, moved to different countries, launched new ministries, changed work places etc. Today many are confronted with; Was this the right decision? Am I doing what God has called me for?


We are not called to harbour divided hearts and waver in our convictions. We are not called to live with uncertainty and without confidence. We are called to live in faith and walk with a saturated appearance of confidence. This is the army the Lord is raising up today. The knowing in our hearts the Lord will deal with every mountain standing in our way and every limitation trying to constrict us. The Lord is our provider and remains our way- maker. The Lord is our source. This is the attitude of a person living from a place of settled convictions.


There will always be good times and bad times and our convictions will be tested. No matter how anointed we are, how well we can pray, how many scriptures we know. Life on earth has good days and bad days.


Isaiah 45:7 NLT

[7] I create the light and make the darkness. I send good times and bad times. I, the LORD, am the one who does these things.


We need to live our lives from a place were we have received the Lord’s instructions which in turn produces the required faith and appearance of settled confidence to complete the task. Most often the tasks the Lord gives us are riddled with challenges which only He can address.


The promise is clear. The Lord will reward those who diligently seek Him and show them which path to take.


Isaiah 48:17 NLT

[17] This is what the LORD says- your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow.


In this very hour the Lord is dealing with any division that exists in His peoples hearts and souls. Never accept the condition of a divided heart and soul. A divided heart and soul will make a person spiral in a state of confusion and every act they execute will be marked with doubt.


Catch your assignment/mantle by faith. Be settled in your convictions and walk out your purpose without hesitation and allow God to fill your journey with the miracles.


Live your convictions in God and experience the following for 2023;


  • Your valley of trouble will be turning into a gateway of hope. Your valley will turn and transform into a doorway of destiny.


Hosea 2:15 NLT

[15] I will return her vineyards to her and transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of

hope. She will give herself to me there, as she did long ago when she was young, when I freed her from her captivity in Egypt.


  • You will shine and reveal God’s obvious favor on your life. Uncommon favor will be your portion this year. Put your name in the following verse;


Genesis 21:22 NLT

[22] About this time, Abimelech came with Phicol, his army commander, to visit Abraham. "God is obviously with you, helping you in everything you do" Abimelech said.


  • You will be raised to the higher purposes of God


  • You will experience the Holy Spirit and His tangible presence in a very fresh way. The Lord is definitely walking with each and everyone of us in our garden called “life” today - sharing His heart. Much growing up is going to take place in 2023. This is one area the Lord cannot elevate us to - he cannot elevate us to maturity - we grow to maturity


  • Get your eyes of people. Forget about big names. It’s all going to be how big God is.


  • Mantels/assignments are going to drop on you in your sleep - just like Solomon. Mantal of wisdom and understanding came to him in his sleep.


To every person that might think you are to far gone;


Here is a word for you: Even if you have taken the wrong path of rebellion and sin for some time; God told me to tell you He will never stop loving you! 


He will not break His covenant with you! 


He will not take back a single word He has spoken over your life!


Come back to God and get back into position!


In general for 2023;


2023 is a year that will be marked with a strong move of God’s spirit in our individual lives. It's also a year where much will be tested.


Live from a heart which is undivided and united with God’s call with the attitude of; Whatever it takes and whatever the cost.


Love you much


Didier
