Life in the flesh leads to a cycle of failure and defeat. Your life makes sense when it is lived to please God. Whatever is in God's hands is safe. When the holy spirit takes hold of your life he gives you: courage, conviction, commitment and connection. Without connection with God there is no courage, conviction and commitment.
Behold the Lord is doing a new thing.
Following Jesus requires maturity. Maturity is a matter of direction not years, age or experience. For when we follow Jesus we gain influence. Sign of maturity is being led. Maturity is letting yourself be controlled by Jesus, for only he can take you to places you least expected, your destiny.
Followership of Jesus is associated with everything that we need to accomplish in our lives. Many failures in our lives are a result of illusion of direction. Following Jesus requires us to: let ourselves be controlled by him; attaching to Christ (intimacy and relational knowledge); understanding that success is in the opposite direction to our flesh, be disciplined; and, we need to be mature, allowing Jesus to gird and lead us.
When we want to come out of a place of failure, Jesus himself has to create the environment of change - Jesus is a creator of contexts that will bring change to ourlives. You never leave a point of failure unless you follow Jesus. Three major illusions in life: illusion of the goal, direction and competence. God must become everything in our lives - he must be the Goal of our lives, not his hand (what he gives). For when we follow Jesus, we gain Jesus, the light of life.
The point of continuous failure is where we find lots of frustrations. Our point of failure is caused by illusion, wrong perception of reality. Faith helps us face reality instead of disconnecting from it. For us to tear down the fortresses of illusion we have to dependent on the parakletos, our advocate and comforter the Holy Spirit. Dependency is allowing God to be in full control and fully depending on him

Bezalel anointing (wisdom, understanding, skills etc.) is activated when work is done through the father and it will not work outside of the father.
