Poised and Commanded

March 2010, the Lord plucked me from a toxic, abusive, and poisonous environment but I didn’t realize I was poised and commanded. During these times, I have had to remind myself of all that I’ve come through — all that God has equipped me to succeed in doing.


He put me in a place where I could meet him in the mountaintops, and He could meet my struggles in the valley, where He could hug, heal, comfort, restore, renew and strengthen me with the sun’s rays. Times can be a bit challenging, but He has me where I need to be. Therefore I am well placed.


He provided resources, opportunities, lessons, and circumstances that made it possible for me to grow. I remain open to change, growth, and opportunity. Likewise, I am blessed and commanded for my purpose.


He positions people along my path to guide, direct, correct, redirect, encourage, inspire and help me to understand my Proverbs 4:23 responsibility to guard my heart because everything that I do [think, feel, believe, say, etc.] flows from it, and I am accountable for it. Moreover, as he positions others, I too am positioned to fulfill his purpose.


He now has me prayerfully equipped, poised, and commanded for power, prosperity, purpose, and peace. His peace that lives within. Uniquely I am purposed with the seeds of a bountiful harvest in all that achieve.

Father, I openly and with a joyful heart receive all that you have given me. No longer am I a prisoner of yesterday’s thoughts and actions designed to destroy.


 “He has anointed me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners…set the oppressed free…to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18

And, in encounters with future challenges, I want to reflect on all I’ve gone through and understand that I am equipped, poised and commanded to succeed.

Have an inspired day!
