I was listening to a minister and when I listen to something I listen to it in full but I’m also listening for those things that “prick” me, that “spark” by the Holy Ghost. His name was Randy Clark. Amazing worldwide ministry and sees miraculous manifestations in healing. He said, “Don’t lower God’s Word to the level of your experience.” I went, “Wow.” Don’t lower God’s Word to the level of your experience.” How often do we do that. When we pray for something or believe something in the Word and we go after it and we don’t see it manifest the way we thought it would or we don’t think it did manifest at all. So we take our expectation and look back at the Word and go, “Well, this is what I experienced so maybe this isn’t for me. Or maybe I’m not seeing this right.” But really, what we’re supposed to do is take our experience, come back to the Word and we use the Word as the standard. So we bring our experience “up” to the Word and we look at the Word and say, “Okay, so this is my experience and this is what the Word says so I should experience this.” So wherever I am right here in this experience, I’m going to come up to this place. Don’t let your experience determine the final outcome of what you receive.

I was meditating on that for a few days and it kept coming up inside me. At the beginning of the year in January, a lot of people, pray about the new year coming in, “Lord, what do You have for me?” I kind of do that in general but I wasn’t really tuned into the specifics. I was just talking to the Lord every day as I go to work and do what I normally did. The Lord every day was just dropping something in me. So the first day after the turn of the year, He said, “You remember when I spoke this to you?” I said, “yes.” He said, “Okay, you write that down again and you stay on that thing.” Because there are some things He may have spoken to you years ago and you still haven’t seen it come to pass. So we don’t let that experience bring His Word down. We bring our experience up to His Word. So we know if He spoke something to us, He’s going to bring that to pass.

So throughout the years, I would pray about this. He said, “Be sure you put that back on your list again this year.” Okay. A few days later, I’m working and I’m in an area by myself so I get to listen to things all the time. I try to flood myself with the Holy Spirit. So He dropped something else in me and said, “You remember this dream I gave you?” I said, “Wow, Lord, that was a long time ago You gave me that dream.” He said, “I want you to think about that dream.” I remember every part of that dream so vividly. He said, “Now you think of that dream, where you are now in your life.” Because when I had the dream at the beginning I was, “Okay, I think I’ve got that figured out. I know what that means.” But nothing ever really happened with what I saw in the dream. He said, “Now you put that down on your list again this year.” I said, “Okay.

Then as I started thinking about the dream, I thought, “Wow, He gave it to me over ten years ago.” I started to look at the dream and it started to make sense to me. How all these years, there’s no way that it even line up in all the past years. But now, hey! It’s starting to make sense.

But if I had said, “Maybe that wasn’t a God dream” and kind of pushed it aside, what would have happened with that dream? He wants you to stay on those things until you see them come to pass. Don’t give up on anything He’s put in your heart. Whatever He has spoken to you, a scripture He’s given to you, a word He’s given to you, a dream He’s shown you… if you have not seen that come to pass, do not let it go. This year, you let the Holy Spirit minister to you and say, “What is it? Have I set something aside or is there something I need to make sure I’m giving more attention to now in this time? Is this the time for that thing?” and let Him minister to you. And pray about those things. Because I believe a lot of things are going to break through this year. I’m not just saying that because “Oh, it’s 2020, breakthrough.” By the Holy Ghost, I’m saying things that have been long time coming are going to break through this year. Things are going to change this year. This year!

Then another thing He spoke to me was … this is kind of funny. For some reason the Holy Ghost speaks to me in the morning when it’s quiet. I woke up and it was like everything was blank and clear. I was in an all-white place. He said, “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” I said, “Wow, Lord, that’s not real religious. Want to give me a scripture? That’s just a saying.” But the Holy Ghost ministers to you the way He knows you’ll get it. He talks your language. I said, “Obviously, I get it.” Don’t ever give up. You tried something here, just because it didn’t work the first time doesn’t mean it’s not going to work. You do it again. Then if it doesn’t work that time, do it again. We never give up. Because if we keep persisting, we will break through. We will have that breakthrough.

I’m going to read a few scriptures to you. This is Hebrews 12:1–4, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…” What marks has He given you? What has He shown you? He’s marked things out for you. “Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. 4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.”

Thank You, Jesus. Now there is one part that says “scorning its shame.” He scorned the shame of the cross. Now sometimes when you don’t see things come to pass, shame can try to come to you. The devil tries to bring shame to you: “You’re just a failure. That didn’t work. You’re never going to get that to work. You’re not a very good Christian. You’re not seeing that thing come to pass. You’ve been praying for that person for 20 years. They still haven’t turned their lives around.” That brings shame to you. But Jesus took all our shame. So when the enemy comes to you and says, “You’re a failure. Look at your past. You’ll never accomplish anything. Who are you?” Don’t let him bring that shame to you. Jesus carried all your shame.

Romans 10:11 says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” Another translation says, “Whoever believers in Him will not be disappointed.”

1st Peter 2:6, “Behold I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious. And whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.”

Romans 5 “And hope does not put us to shame because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

Ps. 22:5, “To you they cried and were rescued. In you they trusted and were not put to shame.”

So when shame tries to come to you, you resist that. That shame is on the cross. Jesus took that shame for me. I’m not going to take any of that. I’m going to try, try again. I’m going to get up. You know that’s the Holy Ghost? The Holy Spirit always is the one who says, “Okay, dust yourself off. Let’s go again.” Isn’t that what He does all the time? Yes! Let’s go. Let’s do this. You can do it. He encourages you and strengthens you.

Isa. 43:18 –19 says, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” So let’s believe together and thank God for His faithfulness that whatever you experienced last year, this is a new time. And those things that God has brought to you in the past, don’t let them go. Take them up again. Let’s try again. Let’s do until we see the victory, until we see that breakthrough. Because it’s not a long way off.
