The enemy is after your blessing on the trading floors of Heaven. He wants you to exchange your blessings for curses.
He is using your emotions against you, tempting you to make decisions based on feelings rather than faith. He is sowing division, not only in your relationships but also within your soul. He is an accuser, going to the trading floors of Heaven and using your emotional exhaustion to bring about curses of discord and strife within your mind, will, and emotions.
How the Enemy Is Gaining a Foothold on the Trading Floors of Heaven
Right now, in this hour, the enemy is using a fixed mindset to come against a faith mindset. What does this mean?
God is always working to change us from the inside out. He has given us a new life and spirit in Christ Jesus. After this new identity is received, the enemy knows all he can do is come against your mind, will, and emotions—causing division within you because he can’t separate you from God.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”—Romans 8:35, 37
He cannot touch your new spirit, but he can mess with your mind. And right now, he is working against the changes the Lord is doing within you. Satan is on the trading floors of Heaven manipulating and deceiving, attempting to get Believers everywhere to trade the promises of God for lies that satisfy the flesh.
The enemy is gaining a foothold on the trading floors of Heaven by getting you to resist change.
- Am I resisting change?
- Am I emotionally fatigued?
- Am I repeating habits and patterns that aren’t glorifying the Lord?
These questions help assess where you are and can reveal a fixed mindset if your answers are “yes.”
But there is good news!
The Lord is exposing the lies that the enemy is speaking on the trading floors of Heaven so you can walk in victory and empowerment!
Here’s What You Need to Know about the Trading Floors of Heaven in this Hour…
Take a moment: Get quiet before the Lord and decide today that you will embrace the change the Lord is doing within you during this season. Proclaim, “I am embracing change!” You cannot take the same habits and patterns of yesterday into your tomorrow. God knows this and wants to release you into your promotion, which means you will need to let go of the thoughts and attitudes that create a fixed mindset.
Know this: Taking back the blessings on the trading floors of Heaven is a journey.
The journey started during Purim, a time of preparation, and then we came to Passover when nine blessings were released.
Then comes a 50-day time of introspection, the Counting Down of the Omer. This is the time the enemy is pressing in. He is using distraction and exhaustion to steal from you. He wants you to quit.
But we are going to move forward in this journey with a faith mindset and we will be victorious in Jesus, reclaiming all that has been stolen!
“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten…You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you; and My people shall never be put to shame.”—Joel 2:25-26
5 Steps to Reclaim the Blessings on the Trading Floors of Heaven
Cancel the fixed mindset and receive a faith mindset.
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” —Hebrews 11:6
When you have a faith mindset you can better understand the divine moments established by the Lord. He releases these divine moments so that you can hear His voice and accept the changes He is doing within your soul.
Meditate on Joshua 1:7-8.
“Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” —Joshua 1:7-8
When Joshua took over as leader for the children of Israel, there were obstacles he faced. When obstacles come—those lies that seem too big for you to push through—meditate on God’s Word.
Seek God’s Kingdom first.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”—Matthew 6:33
The enemy wants you to quit. When the pressure comes, remember Matthew 6:33 and seek God’s Kingdom first. The Word won’t quit. Jesus, the Word in flesh, isn’t quitting. When you feel like giving up, push through and “seek first the kingdom of God,” and He will provide what you need to overcome.
Remember nothing is impossible for God.
“But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’”—Matthew 19:26
When you are at the trading floors of Heaven and the enemy is pressing in, it is time to remember the strength of the Lord. You cannot overcome this emotional demonic onslaught of division without the power of God. What seems impossible is overturned and made possible through Jesus.
Activate your faith.
“And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us; yes, establish the work of our hands.”—Psalm 90:17
Make a plan and commitment to walk in this truth. When the lies press in that this change the Lord is doing is hopeless, replace it with truth. Declare you have a faith mindset, and your effort will produce a pathway to God’s victory, success, and glory.
Don’t allow the enemy to steal the abundant life Jesus has for you. Be aware that the accuser is out to steal your blessings on the trading floors of Heaven. But also, be encouraged. Your hope and victory are in the Lord.
Stay close to the Word and guard your heart. Be careful of the words that you speak and ensure they align with the Lord’s. Follow the steps above and trust the Way Maker to make a way for you.
He is doing a new thing in you. Allow the Spirit to change you.
He wants to promote you, but you must be willing to let go of the habits and patterns of yesterday so you can step into your destiny tomorrow.
