im attractive i favored i'm empowered i have seeds of greatness you dwell on what god says about you it automatically clear out the clutter fear stay where faith is encouragement can't stay where hope is killed stay where forgiveness is mediocrity can't stay where greatness is program your mind with what god says about you this lady had a beautiful house enjoy it we couldn't get upstairs because of the trash in the same way if you don't clear out the clutter it will keep from go into new levels worry will keep you from rising higher living guilty will keep you from pursuing dreams going around defended better will keep from new opportunities what all these people hurt they did me wrong that's why i'm bitter that we that have
twenty seven years ago you still holding on to it why are you still sour over the person that walked away still up and over how you were raised still bitter over that company that let you go be order don't let that in your future they heard you want don't let them continue to hurt you by holding onto it recognize thats cluttering your mind that's limiting your vision saying what did wasn't hurtful i'm not making excuses for their behavior but as long as you hold onto it giving them your power you're letting them control you we only have so much emotional energy each day do you know how much energy it takes to hold a grudge to be bitter to go around trying to pay people back that
valuable energy you need for your dreams for your goals for your children god said he will give you beauty for ashes but here's the key you to let go of the ashes before you received the beauty go round hurt an offended upset and see the new things god has in store you have to clear out the clutter that's what makes room for god to give you the beauty take we make sometimes is we think we have to get even we have to pay people back no thats not your job if you turn it over to god he'll be vindicator hell bring justice into your life every her every wrong every person that took advantage of you god will vindicate you better than can vindicate yourself david said god
a table before you in the presence your enemies that men when god brings you out those that did you wrong the they tried to hold you back they will see you promoted honored in a position of influence god is not going to vindicate you in private going to do it in public so your enemy see you bless favored successful when my dad went to be with the lord and i stepped up to pastor the church i was very secure i had no ministered before one sunday radar first started speaking i was walking the front lobby and overheard these two older ladies talking one said he is not as good as his father the other answered yeah i don't think he's going to make it that was the last thing i needed to hear it was like my worst nightmare i was to just swing back
you do this nobody's going to listen to me but i felt something rise up in me so strongly i thought who are they to tell me what i can't do they didn't breathe life into me they don't determine my destiny they didn't know me before i was formed in my mother's womb i don't need their approval i don't have to have them to be for me i did what i'm asking you to do i cleared out the clutter me time their voices came to my mind i said no thanks i am well able i am strong in the lord god being for me its more than the world being against me they still may not like me but thats okay when they
are on television they probably see me when they're flipping through serious exam they might hear me what was that god preparing a table in the presence of my enemies when we were trying to acquire this building the form of compact center a well known business leader in houston told a friend of mine that it would a cold day in hell before who had got the compact center he was very against us the we were up against was much bigger had many more resources but gods in and made things happen that we never could make happen and here we are today but i can imagine every time that man drives down the freeway cesar building with the big lakewood sign he must think it's a cold day in hell cause here we are what was that god honoring us in front of the opposition
gloating over it not to anyway but here's my boy god knows how to vindicate you it would be one thing if he did it in private we would be grateful god is going to do it in public he pairing a table in the presence of your enemies means when you have position when you have probable and thing come against you god has a the is will fight with the opposition live worried upset stressed out no case at the table god has prepared if you i stay in rest then god will go to work when you work god rest as long as you're uptight worried to make it happen only in your own strength it will limit what god will do the same said and now that he is gone clear the worry clear out the

they said next was the real key they went on to say even if the livers were still i not going to bow down powerful position you can say im going stay in peace if it works on my way and im going to stay in peace if it doesnt work out my way then you take away all the power of the enemy if you're only going to be happy if it happens your way you're setting yourself up for disappointment why don't you take this next step god this is what i'm believing for this is what i want god you know what's best for me and if it does happen my way i'm still going to stay in peace i'm still gonna have a song of i'm still going to be good to people that's what allows god to do amazing things but there's a lot of noise these days there's a lot of drama things we can get pulled into worry conflict
jealousy that may be all around us but it doesnt have to get in us pay attention to what you're allowing in your spirit just because there's conflict with your relatives i mean it has to get in you dont take that babe stay on the harrow maybe at the office you could be frustrated people are playing pinot tweeting your right its see to let that sour your day come home negative no clear out that clutter your time is too valuable to leave it bitter this day is a gift from god we live it we can never get it back and sometimes we become so hooked on drama so used to live in a this situation putting a fire fighting with relative weve forgotten it is like to be in peace to not have all that clutter
that is not the way god created us in the garden of eden before they ate in fruit any noise drama jealousy backstabbing i'll take it was peaceful joyful and not like that now but can choose to live from a place of peace you don't have to let outside inside maybe you become comfortable with the clutter this lady you don't recognize that is your vision that is blocking your potential not that it doesn't smell good worry doesnt look good on you living guilt the bitter offended angry that is on your style clear out that clutter and you'll step into new levels i read where a sheep won't give birth in a noisy place when i have to go into labor it will leave the flock
