My Vision: Conflict in Spirit?

“Conflict in Spirit” sounds like a contradiction in terms; an oxymoron, but bear with me for a moment.  Over the past few days (like all week), I’ve had no clients, so I’ve had a lot of time to read and study Scripture (sounds like a God set-up doesn’t it).  Yes!

Has the presence of the Lord been so strong that you felt overwhelmed?

… There, in lies, my conflict!

Let me give you a little of the backstory…. I believe that I may have shared with you the vision that God gave me for Speight Enterprises.  If not, for now the details are not really important. However, the vision has begun to come into focus.  Now I know that Christians are not supposed to get scared, but we must acknowledge the fear and reverance of what God is about to do in our lives.  What’s funny is that it is actually what the Lord showed me that He would do this year, now I’m unsettled by what’s beginning to manifest?

… Whazzup with that?? 

I’ve begun to see bits and pieces of the vision coming together.  My steps are being ordered and I’m starting to walk down the path that God has allowed me to see.  So now comes the conflict of:

  1. “God is that really you?”
  2. Am what I’m feeling a check in my Spirit, where God is saying “Slow your round, don’t move too fast & don’t get a head of me!     -OR-
  3. Is it simply the anxiety of my soul?  Spirituality-and-soul-bridge-between-heart-and-mind

About a week or so ago, the Lord gave me a message entitled, “Who’s waiting on who?” subtitle: “Are you listening?”  Yes, the question came to me first. Has God shown me His vision and now I’m waiting on Him to make the first move? – Or – Am I just not listening and He has been waiting on me to take the next step?  I must admit that it is a somewhat awkward place to me.

So what am I saying?  If our vision looks like it will be EASY to accomplish, then we really don’t need God, honestly!  But if in our eyes, it looks IMPOSSIBLE, then it must be of God. Why? Because we know beyond a shadow of a doubt, that when ONLY GOD can make it happen and He will truly get ALL the Glory!

As I’ve typed this post, I can see things even clearer now. The Spirit, in itself, is never in conflict, however, the Spirit and the soul are always at war for control of your life.  Tell your soul (your mind & emotions) to quiet down, so that you can hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. Now we shouldn’t move too fast, but we can’t afford to simply do nothing.

… Shhhh, Are you listening?

Your vision is clearer than you think.  But don’t be scare, we do understand that Life in Christ is a Faith Walk. My daughter said something very profound yesterday.  She said that God does not tell us to jump off the cliff with our eyes open, because He knows if we see what’s coming, we won’t jump.  But in faith, we jump with our eyes closed and allow our Holy Spirit to lead & guide us safely through our life’s journey.


For those of you that took the time to read this post, I pray that it blessed you, as much as it has blessed me. As our vision, in business & in life, becomes too big for our soul to handle, then it’s just the right size for the Holy Spirit to take control!

Be Encouraged!  

… The Best is yet to be…

  1. It was as though we were twins in our experiences. My vision was conceived in. 2008, became clearer in 2014. Then a setback and discouragement set in (cuz I didn’t realize it was a God set up) it included a home move and now it’s like seeing pieces of a puzzle laying out on a table all face up and now they are beginning to vibrate and as they vibrate, selected pieces are rising up from the table. It is as if the road that once was crooked is being made straight🥀. 🌹.
    I totally relate and thank you for the perspective of acknowledge the fear and reverence it as a sign of what God is about to do both to sin that has tried to interfere as well as the assignment I’m about to recieve. Oh breath!!!! The Spirit is near! Amen!!!

    • Hi Sarahgrace, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your comments. Thanks also for making me reread this post! It’s AMAZING how God will reaffirm His message to you, even when you least expect it. I pray that you continue to BREATH and move as the Spirit leads and guides you. Many, Many Blessings as God Orders Your Steps! Amen….
