From: www.tdjakes.org The Potters House

If you feel like you've been under construction, with debris, rubble and mess all around you, don't worry, God is in control.

Could it be possible that God is using the enemy to demolish what needs to be torn down so He can resurrect what he has promised in your life?

There are some things in your life that have to be torn down, before you can be built back up on a solid more stable foundation. Some old things need to be disposed before you can walk in a new place.

There's a sifting going on in your life right now, this process separates the wheat from the tare, the good from the bad. But hold on to your faith, your mess is progress! "…Behold, satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: 
But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not…" (Luke 22:31-32).

 Faith is not a Feeling

Are you operating from a place of Faith or a place of Feelings? If you're operating from your feelings it will only make you miserable, you will be no more stable in your emotions than you are anchored in your faith. You have to know that God is for you, even when life seems like it has turned against you. All you have left to fight with is your faith. Even though you may be in a messy place right now and it may be painful & overwhelming, know that He's working all things together for your good. So how do you survive the mess? You have to Change your Perspective! You cannot operate from the perspective of the mess, you have to operate from the perspective of the progress

Time is a Precious Commodity:

The most precious commodity that anyone of us possess is our time. We do not know how long our days will be, so we must have our feet on the ground of the present while having our backs warmed by the rays of the past and our eyes focused on the vision of the future. When we’re young, we often do not realize the true value of each hour in every day. We squander time, wandering here and there, feeling like we have all the time in the world to discover what the future holds. However, as we mature, we come to recognize that no matter how rich or poor we are, time on earth is more valuable than gold.

Bishop Jakes on Faith

Are you able to trust God in messy places? Do you have the faith to sustain you in the middle of a mess? When all hell is breaking loose, everything's failing, glass is shattering, concrete is bursting, dust is flying, bricks knocked out of place, when you're going thru a crisis are you able to stand in the middle of it all and say, LORD I Trust you! Hold on to your faith, Just Believe! No matter what mess you're going thru, God is able to bring you out! "Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him.

I Will do a New Thing in You

God says "Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; do you not perceive it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert." (Isaiah 43:19) There are messy moments on the road to Destiny, you cannot have progress without mess. When you are in the process to progress, things get a little messy on the way to getting there. But when you get thru this mess, progress is waiting on you. Don't let the mess fool you, don't let the enemy distract you into thinking that the mess is all there is. Real ministry comes out of mishaps, messes, mayhem, sorrow and tragedy. God uses people who were broken, battered, tattered and torn to heal other people. So don't give up, don't be discouraged, God is making a message out of your mess!
