Good Morning… Great Morning Everyone! This is the day the Lord has made, let us make a conscious choice to rejoice and be glad in it!
This is Dr. Elona Sanders and I want to welcome you to another powerful and insightful Early Morning Empowerment Virtual Gathering. This is day #2 of a very special 10-Day Early Morning Empowerment Prophetic Gathering and we are so thankful to be here and so happy that we have been given this time and this opportunity to come and be together in this sacred environment.
With that being said I am going to ask you to bring your hearts and mind present right here–right now in this sacred moment and let’s take a good healing deep breath in, and on the exhale… we come present, right here, right now to this sacred and divine moment and we are aware and conscious of this space that has been created and opened for us.
Next healing deep breath in, and on the exhale… we sit all the way in this moment and we turn our attention and focus inward and we tap into our “Rich Inner Life of the Kingdom of God within!” And we breathe again, and on the exhale… we sit in this moment fully awake, fully alert, and fully present and feel the Holy Sprit’s presence ready to guide us into all Truth.
We are so thankful and so grateful to be here again. This is the day the Lord has made, let us make a conscious choice to rejoice and be glad in it!
I am so excited, so thankful for this opportunity. I am not just saying that to just say words. You don’t know how grateful I am to be here with you. You know, we can’t just do anything we want anytime we want but when God opens up something and allows you to sit in this—(my mind had been on this for several months.)
Usually in the month of June or July I extend Early Morning Empowerment out… but we didn’t do that until this time. God knew it was going to be the perfect time to do it as we are in a high holy season. I am not taking anything for granted and I want you to come along with me and believe everything that God says. So we are right here, right now with this 10-Day Consecration that started sundown Sunday with the blast of the Ram’s Horn that ushered in Rosh Hashanah.
Your Miracle season starts now. I want you to say that with me 3 times and make it personal! “My Miracle Season Starts Now!” “My Miracle Season Starts Now!” “My Miracle Season Starts Now!”
For with God nothing shall be impossible and we laid a foundation yesterday and you can get that digital download here: http://elonasanders.com/EME1. All of that is available so that you can have what’s being released over these 10 days.
We have decreed and declared and opened up our mouths to let you know that there is something phenomenal happening right now in an unseen realm! In the midst of what seems like chaos and confusion in the natural, physical realm, and in spite of whatever hardship you may be facing, God is still in control.
For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment! (Luke 1:37 Amp.)
So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effects, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11 Amp.)
Beloved today aren’t you so happy that God sent His Word and that He has declared His Word. The Psalmist tells us that the Word of the Lord has been tested and tried He is a shield to those that trust in Him. (Ps. 18:30)
Today is Day #2 in our 10- day consecration and I want to take a moment to for us to really slow down and get balanced. I know some of you may already be out driving on your way to work, moving around. I pray that you can take a moment and not multi-task because I want to say something that is very important.
We are in a high holy season Rosh Hashanah is here we’re in the 10 days of “AWE”. We are taking time for introspection, taking the time to repent and to reflect on the year because we know that Rosh Hashanah is the head of the year. We are in a new year. Our new year has come early, Right?
What I want to give to you today as we are in this consecration. We are on day 2 and we are slowing down and taking introspection and looking at where our year has been up until now. We’re repenting–Repent meaning come back to the right mindset. Come back into divine alignment.
In order to do that, I want to share some things with you today. From scripture today in the book of Philippians 4:6-9 I am going to read it to you from King James version and then I want to really focus on some things from the Amplified because there are some things we need to get that’s going to take us a long way if we get this today.
King James Version says:
“Be careful for nothing, but, in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”
Amplified Rendition expounds on that and it’s going to set us up for where we want to go today:
Philippians 4: 6-9 (Amp.)
“Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.
And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there are any virtue and excellence, it there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].
Practice what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and model your way of living on it. And the God of peace of untroubled, undisturbed well-being) will be with you.”
I want to talk today about the importance of Balance. The importance of having a soul that is well-balanced and having a soul that is calm and that is in a state of resting. As you know when came into this year (I keep repeating it over and over again because it is worth repeating. If we don’t follow instructions we will not get proper results.)
We came into this year with the prophetic word … “Resting In The Lord!” Often times we are so busy, so anxious, so concerned, so troubled, so stressed all day long every day that we are praying and not getting results. We say that we are believing, but not seeing manifestation. But today I want us to really slow down and do first things first because everything works from the inside out.
How to get yourself in a calm, balanced well-being state…Your Soul which is your mind, your will, your emotions, your appetite, your seat of intellect, you seat of desire–All those things that dwell in your soulish realm and in this body that we live in. You know that we are a Spirit that’s the part of us that is just like God. Pure without fault, excellent, praise-worthy. We are Spirit, we possess a Soul that is also infinite, that is also powerful and we live in a physical body in this physical dimension. In our Soul, there are Soul-houses where everything sits and operates out of those 7 soul-houses and it’s important to know how to balance your Soul and bring your Soul to a place of rest. And when your soul is in a place of rest that means it is in harmony and it is in balance with the Spirit Man.
When those two come together your body must come into divine alignment, your circumstances and situations come into divine alignment. You begin to manifest the perfect will of God for your life. So, everything works from the inside out. Often time why are seeing the results we want to see is because we are not balanced. We are too anxious; we are racing on the inside. Not only are we moving and rushing around physically but that mental state must also come to rest.
As I was looking at this I thought that there was something very interesting that the Amplified rendition says of this. In verse #6 in says:
“Do not fret or have anxiety about anything”
(That right there will minister all by itself!!!)
“Do not fret or have anxiety about anything”
(That is a big statement right there!) “Do not fret or have anxiety about anything” (No matter what it is… not matter what’s happening… no matter what’s transpiring that is a tall order. The writer says:
“Do not fret or have anxiety about anything but in every circumstance and with thanksgiving continue to make your wants known to God.”
Now I want us to look at that for a minute because it seems like we have a dichotomy here. On the one hand, it is saying don’t fret and have anxiety about anything, to be in this place of rest, but… continue to make your wants known to God. So let’s unpack this so that we are doing things in a proper order and sequence and we can get the right results.
First of all… “Simply because you have a need, a want or a desire, does not mean that you have to fret about it.”
I want you to write that down. “Simply because there is a need or desire or even a challenge in your life that you may be facing right now it does not mean that you should fret or have anxiety about it!”
So the writer here says… “In every circumstance…” Let’s take a moment and break that down. In every circumstance:
- If your back account is short
- If you received an unexpected bill
- If the IRS is harassing you
- The refrigerator went out
- The washer is not working
- The kids need new clothes
Whatever the circumstance; you owe so much on your tuition, you can’t take out another loan. No matter the circumstance is your body is acting up because of your Soul in out of balance. Write that down. If you are going through situations right now in your physical body it is because your Soul is out of balance. Your Soul is not at rest and it’s showing up in your physical body.
No matter what the circumstance. No matter what’s going on. No matter the need. No matter what the desire, whatever the challenge is, it doesn’t matter, the writer says… “In every circumstance with thanksgiving, while you are in it, be in thanksgiving. You are not necessarily thanking God for it. I am just putting you in remembrance of some things this morning because we are going to get results. We are going to get tremendous results.
This is your miracle season! With thanksgiving, while you are in it… What the writer in this whole passage is doing is telling you to shift, and how to bring your Soul into balance, where you are coming into this calm, this peace, and this rest that we have been instructed to do this year.
With thanksgiving, while you are in it, while it is presenting itself, while it’s a challenge, continue to make your wants known to God that is the things that you need the things that you desire. But it is actually saying WANT! There are some things that YOU WANT! You don’t necessarily need it. Maybe things can stay the way they are, but you want it, you desire it. You have a desire.
He says continue to make that known to God, but the POSTURE that you have while making it known is what’s important. This is what I’ve found very interesting. The next verse says “and God’s peace shall be yours!”
This lets you know that there is a way to present and to petition what it is that you want, need or desire without fretting and having anxiety. This is such a big point! You must get this because if you tell the truth about it, most of the time when you are praying about what you need, or about a circumstance, situation, what you desire, what you are petitioning for, you are in anxiety, you’re in depression, you’re in despair, you’re in worry, you’re in aggravation, you’re in overwhelm. That is NOT THE CORRECT POSTURE!
All we’re going to do from that place or that posture is produce more of that. There is a time for tears and a time for crying. Usually when you are in intercession, when there is a travailing going on, and 9 times out of 10 beloveds, it has nothing to do with you. God is using you as a vehicle to bring change about in this earth realm. To bring change about in a nation or tribe of people, to bring change about, and then the tears will come, the groanings will come that you cannot utter. That’s a different level. That is a completely different level when you are being used in intercession and traveling prayer. When you’re crying and moaning because YOU are feeling the stress of it or the overwhelming effects of it because YOU’RE in doubt, because YOU’RE feeling sorry for yourself. All of those lower-level emotions, you don’t want to stay there.
Now, every now and then, (I’m actually saying 3 things to you and I am going to come back and clarify this.)
Every now and then a good cry is necessary to cleanse you. But you don’t want to stay there you want to come to a place of peace and a place of rest, calm and balance. That’s when you know you’ve had to cleanse with your tears as well. I am bringing out 3 points right now.
Number one: you do not want your posture in prayer to be one of worry, anxiety, fret, overwhelm, despair, doubt, or depression. You don’t want to pray from that posture. If you are praying from that posture what’s happening is that you are putting feelings and emotions to what you are thinking and feeling and saying, and according to the “Law of Attraction” it has no other recourse but to give you more of that. You are on a level of mindset or vibrational frequency that’s connecting to vibrational frequency bringing wave particles together it has no other option but to multiply that, increase that, and continue to bring that to you. You don’t want that level of prayer. You don’t want to be desperate in your praying. You don’t want to be desperate like there’s no hope and you’re down crying all the time. That’s number one.
Number two: There is a time when you will have a cleansing cry. Sometimes there will be such overwhelming that you will boil over and the tears will come and they will cleanse that out. That is overwhelming, but you will also come to a place of peace and calm after that and you’re not worrying and fretting but you are allowing the dam of your tears to wash you and cleanse your Soul from the pressure of what you were dealing with. The difference is this… right now, you are not bemoaning. You’re crying and fretting from depression but you are allowing that good cry because you are still in hope you’re still hopeful you still believe, you still have faith and still know that all things are working together for your good.
Number Three: Intercession. When God is using you with moaning and groaning and travail and deep crying but you are doing it not because you’re feeling sorry for yourself but because the Holy Spirit is using you with groaning that cannot be uttered!
What I want to give us today as we prepare to wrap this up is how to come into balance and how to come to rest and make sure that your Soul is at rest and you’re not being fretting. This is seeking the Kingdom first. This is what seeking the Kingdom first is about. There is no need of you quoting the Bible, doing deep studies in the word of God, and you continue to allow your Soul to be out of balance. If your Soul does not come into rest and come into calm balance you will not get the results that you need to get. Remember we are spiritual, energetically, vibrational beings and you are emanating, and you are always creating. You’re always in creation mode. Good, bad, or indifferent you are always in creating mode.
These are some of the things I am coming to appreciate about God and His system and His ways of doing things. His way is solid, it’s steady, it’s unmovable, it’s unwavering.
If we learn to work the principles, (that’s what we are going to get out of these 10 days) so that we can hear the sound of abundance and tap into, and activate, and see our lives and the will of God for our lives in a new way. Then we can begin to produce in a new way. Beloved, come on… it’s time to grow up. It’s time out for always crying and being fretful and miserable because things are not working. How can things work when your entire Soulish realm is out of balance? Everything in your Chakra system or your Soul-houses is out of balance that governs things in your natural existence. That causes you to be able to produce, to create, is all out of balance.
We have to bring everything into harmony and balance. I want you to start paying attention to yourself. There are times when I am sitting and I am on a telephone or if I am talking to people, I always bring myself into a place of calm rest. There have been many times that I’ve been in a conversation with people (I don’t do this when I am coaching because I prepare for that before I get on a call). But I have had conversations with people and I’ve caught myself in the middle of the conversation my whole body is tensed and in a ball. I want you to be conscious of that.
When you are in a ball and you are tensed and you are not fully resting, relaxing, sitting in a grounded position in your Spirit. You know when we take that healing deep breath and we blow it out, and we release it and everything comes to that calm balance, You are sitting in your root system in your first Soul-house. You are actually sitting in that being anchored, being steady, being rooted, being grounded, you are resting…That is where we need to be.
Some of you, myself included, sometimes and you are going, you are busy through your whole day and you are tensed. Your muscles are tensed, no wonder when you get home in the evening you have aches and you have pain and you are irritable, you are in a bad mood, because as things are being filtered and the tapes are playing over and over in your mind your Soul is responding and reacting.
But… we want to come to a place of rest. I am stopping at verse one and we are going to continue on because I promise you this is loaded with what God wants to give us over these next 10 days. Trust me when I tell you if you follow me and you come in here every day, I promise you that if you just do what God is telling us to do, you’re going to be transformed. You’re coming into your miracle season and you’re going to see thing begin to line up and work!
Do not fret or have anxiety about anything today, just breathe through it and just say a little mantra to yourself… “That doesn’t mean anything!” Breathe through it and in every circumstance continue to be thankful. Find something that you can be thankful for.
O.k. beloved our time is up for today but before you go take one more good healing deep breath in… and on the exhale just let everything relax in you. I am releasing you with many blessing the rest of your day.
Alright, beloved have a great day!
