Every Negative word spoken over you is a LIE!! You will do all that God has spoken over you.

  I rebuke every negative word spoken over you!

Dear Labels,

You are a lie from hell. I am all God says I am.

Sincerely,

J.Marie Speaks

These were the words spoken over me in a conference in Arlington, Texas. A conference where I sat waiting for confirmation from God on my next steps in my journey. A journey that started with so much baggage of words. I never thought I was good enough…smart enough…pretty enough…holy enough…capable enough. This led to my suicide attempt in 2012. I was consumed with the way people thought about me. Consumed with my mistakes and failures, I was easily shaken by the success of others. I was wearing so many labels life seemed unbearable.

Yet, now I realize God let the world break me so he could build me up. He wouldn’t let it destroy me, but those struggles helped me learn so much about myself and God. I realized I didn’t need a cheerleading squad of support. In my depression I felt alone surrounded by silence because no one believed my cries for help. I would go outside on my balcony and wonder why is no one coming to my aid. I know now that God wanted to answer my call alone, so that he alone could get the praise.

He wanted me to understand the power of his word and the promise within his resurrection. For the word of the Lord tells me in 2 Timothy that when we find the truth of knowledge of Christ( understanding the word), we will come to our senses of our freedom in Christ (promise of resurrection). Then, we will be able to escape the snare of the devil no longer held captive to do is will. What is his will? His will is to destroy the destiny and purpose other your life, so that you never become who God designed you to be.

Remember, 1 Peter 5:8 “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” BUT!!! Matthew 28:18 says, “And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth”.

He has been given authority to destroy every yoke in your life. A yoke? A yoke is a harness or a collar wrapped around your neck with the purpose to control you. Jesus has been given the authority to break the things in your life that are continue to control you and stealing your joy and peace. But I had to hand it over to him and admit my weakness which some people have a hard time doing. They forget the scripture that lets us know , “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9.

So in my weakness, he released me from labels of lies from the enemy. These labels were shame, fear, jealousy, anger, confusion, frustration and pride.

HOLD UP!!!!

These labels nearly destroyed my life.  I was so tied up in the emotions of my failures, I never thought I would achieve anything. But wait, you were a Christian?? Yes, I knew the name of Jesus, but I was walking in religion and not relationship. Religion will kill you. Religion will let you suffer in silence because of your “godly” image or reputation. Relationship will say I don’t care who sees me. LORD, I need you right now.

Religion will keep you wearing make-up to cover the scars of life. Relationship will have you prostrate on the floor in complete surrender to God’s will in your life confessing, “I can’t take another moment without you”.

Religion keeps the labels on while relationship completely and utterly destroys the ungodly labels in your life. Religion is what the Pharisees prided themselves in as they prosecuted the son of God on the Roman cross. Jesus didn’t like the pride of Religion. He loved their knowledge of the scriptures but condemned their actions and the mask they wear declaring how “HOLY” they were (Matthew 23). Jesus didn’t come to earth to proclaim the religion of this word. He came to invite people into a relationship with him, the Father and the Holy Spirit.

 

Relationship OVER Everything

Once I realized that I was in religion, I had to build a relationship. This relationship has been 5 years strong and continues to be a work in progress with no end in sight. My relationship with Christ lifted the heavy burden of negative labels over my life.

Galatians 5:1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit againto a yoke of slavery.

Romans 6: 22-23

22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of      God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ   Jesus our Lord.

Psalms 55:22

Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.

It does not mean I am free of issues. I WISH!!!! Romans 3:10 confirms this statement by saying “As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one. “So YES every now and then, I am confronted by a label and its sister called the storms of life who wishes to visit. They see that I am walking in my purpose and they want a seat at the table of destiny. God has given me a vision much bigger than I thought my life could ever accomplish, so my relationship must stay strong and connected to him. I refuse to let them stop my momentum even though it can be extremely difficult. Most of my attacks come from the words of people. “You can’t do that, Jazzmin”. You aren’t connected”. “You don’t have a platform”. “You are a nobody”. Then the Lord reminds me that he loves nobodies like me and the weight of their negative words are released again.

 

King David was a nobody.

He was a quiet shepherd boy who watched over the sheep for his father, when Samuel came to anoint the next king in the house of Jesse. Upon the arrival of the prophet, Jesse gathered all of his sons except David. He mislabeled him. Who has mislabeled you? Who overlooked you? Who has belittled or berated you only to realized you were the hand picked King of Israel by the Lord God himself. 1 Samuel 16 assures us that God does not look at beauty or strength or intelligence as the sole factor for his favor. God looks at the heart. David had a heart after God and no mislabeling could remove his anointing.

 

We must realize that other people nor ourselves can apply labels to our lives unless we let them because we don’t know or believe we are who God has called us to be. BUT, God will make sure he sends people in your direction to remind you……I picked you for my purpose. So I will tell you what God told me through every extremely gifted woman.

 

Every negative word (label) spoken over you is a lie, you will do all that God has spoken over you. So tell those labels goodbye!!!!
