As I have the understanding that some things are in the process of manifesting, I’m reminded of the scripture that says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you,” (Matthew 6:33). As well, there are some things I know that are about to come to fruition in my life, and there are some things that I hope to come to fruition in my life, as they’re by faith.

While I weigh and consider the opportunity for growth, I’m feeling more established in my spirit and appreciative of the process it takes and is taking, as things in my life are being manifested. I feel in my spirit even though some things have not come to pass yet, I have hope, which gives me peace. Therefore, I understand how important it is to be established in your spirit man before you see a physical or plutonic thing come to pass in your life. There are some things that you’re not aware of that you desire. Those are things that are of an acquaintance God has with you before the foundation of the world, as you acquire more of you true self. To be blessed by God, to become rich in the fruits of the spirit is our great purpose.

I am being established as a person and child of God as I continue to have a receptive heart to Him. He blesses me to expound upon things He’s already shown me through revelatory knowledge. One being, that our mountains can be as high as our next triumph in Christ. It’s an infinite amount of wisdom and understanding to be acquired, and I look forward to more and am very thankful. It’s the foundation, which is built by God, that will stand as He is the cornerstone of what we inspire to accomplish.

We should invite Him to be a part of what we’re doing in every facet of our lives. Because He is the cornerstone in my life, when I receive manifestations of what I’ve been seeking Him for and of my true self, I will be able to stand. To be established is to be given by God spiritual wisdom, which is the substance to stand upon a firm foundation.

Therefore, to be spiritually rich is far better than to have the multi-million dollar package. To be spiritually rich is to have salvation. It’s hope where there’s no hope. It’s loving your neighbor. It’s sharing God’s wisdom and the word of God that fights against any affliction. When we have the concept of being spiritually rich established in us, we then are prepared to receive the riches that are in this world. We will be established and continue to have the mindset of kingdom building with the revenue and assets to do more for the kingdom of God.

“For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him.” — 2 Chronicles 16:9

Some accumulate things and set out to do many endeavors by whatever means society and the world deems necessary to obtain the things they desire in life. But their foundation won’t last because Jesus isn’t the cornerstone. As David, the little shepherd boy who later was ordained to become king, there are those who seem to not possess the attributes to accomplish certain feats in life, but they indeed have the heart for prophetic placement. I believe prophetic placement will become the defining moment in the lives of those who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit. Therefore, do not look upon things with the natural eye but be spiritual minded, as you’re positioned for greatness. This is the rhythm of the gospel character and the sound of the word of God exemplified in your life.
