Saturation is your weapon.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose trust is the Lord. For he will be like a tree planted by the water. That extends its roots by a stream, And does not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought, Nor cease to yield fruit.”

- Jeremiah 17:7-8 (New American Standard Bible)


One of my deepest reasons for no longer wanting to run my coaching program was because I honestly thought it was making my clients a target for the enemy. You might be thinking, girl it is not that serious, but it honestly seemed like often my clients would experience miraculous things happening in their lives during our work together but also there would be intense spiritual warfare popping off in their life impeding their ability to implement what we worked on together. I never told anyone this but these were real thoughts I had that heavily influenced my desire to stop my coaching program.

A few weeks ago though, toward the end of a fast I had been on, God spoke to me about this out of the blue and said it had nothing to do with my program being “cursed” but that what I was witnessing in the lives of my clients was a snapshot of what is happening in the lives of His people in my audience on a daily basis and it was just that I got to see it because of the close proximity of the coaching relationship. In the context of His leading and teaching me to shepherd the people He’s given me lately (I’ll share more about that next week), I sensed a charge from Him like “what are you gonna do about this?”

There’s where this week’s scripture comes in because God has been drilling into me the importance of staying “saturated” in Him lately and I’ve been experiencing the benefits of it in my own life. When our trust is truly in Him, nothing can touch us. Nothing can stop us from yielding the fruit we were planted here to produce. But, like verses 5-6 of this same chapter say, when our trust is in man or our own flesh, we experience cursing in our lives instead of blessing. Not because God puts it on us, but because our “shield of faith” in the right thing isn’t up (Ephesians 6:16).

If you’re wondering right now how do you do this—how do I actually put my trust in God in a way that stops the cycles of cursing I’m experiencing in my life—it starts with what you’re saturating yourself in. That’s because faith comes by hearing (Romans 10:17). So, the more of God’s Word we consume on a regular basis, the stronger we’ll be in Him. Conversely, the more of the world / culture / fear, etc we consume on a regular basis, the weaker we’ll be. The amount of defeat you’re experiencing in your life has a direct correlation with how much of God vs the world you’re consuming on a daily basis. Period.

Please hear me. This is SO important. We must stay saturated in Him. This is the real warfare. And we have the potential to be winning SO much more than we are.
