CONNECT TO GOD – RELEASE YOUR MINDSETS FOR HIS MINDSET AND INCREASE
It is time we stop practicing being the Church, and actually take risks and make decisions causing us to rise into a Church that looks and acts like Jesus did while He was on the earth.
That means we will have to take risks of stepping out into unknown waters.
No security will be our security!!!
What I mean by that is that as we let go of what we have leaned on in the past – our own strength, the way things have worked in the past, the comfort of traditional ways we conduct our lives – we will learn how to lean on Him and learn how He thinks about things.
It is against our natural minds, which Paul addressed in Romans:
Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. Romans 8:5 NIV
The Church has to make decisions based on what the Spirit is saying, not on what the world is saying.
We must have enough relationship with God that when we are in the midst of a situation, we can see the unknown, speak out what the Spirit is revealing, and produce what only dependency on God can bring.
12 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation – but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. 14 Because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by Him we cry, “Abba, Father.”
16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. – Romans 8:12-16 NIV
As His children, we will live risky lives. When we see Him on the water, we will desire to walk with Him. When He says we can speak to mountains, we rise up to move that mountain out of the way. If He says go, we have immediate response to His desire.
There’s a new grace that is being released on the people who have wisdom and have walked with the counsel of God. They will be relied on in this time to release wisdom to those who just have passion. They will help them with wisdom as long as they don’t bring them into an old regimen. The old will learn from the young, and the young will learn from the old, because that is the design of the Kingdom. Then God’s purposes will be fulfilled.
Radical worshipers, extreme worshipers are going to bring radical and extreme results … very great in degree. They’re going to go to exaggerated lengths, exceeding the ordinary, the usual, and the expected. They’re going to be the most advanced, and they will bring God and His presence into every activity, indoor and outdoor, because they’re involved in extreme missions.
They’re going to go to the outermost, the most remote places, as well as the nearest places. Because they’re standing in their position, they’re going to go beyond what is normal or reasonable.
It is going to be extremely important to move in the moment – a very short period of time, a particular time, a precise point in time, and this is the present time. It’s a time of excellence, a time of influence, a time of effect, a time of action. As you move in His moments, then you’ll see things suddenly turn and head toward great events.
It is going to tip the scales from one kingdom to the other because this is the time.
All of creation is waiting for us to arise and be who God says we are.
[But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us! For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship]. Romans 8:18-19 AMP
Lord, we may have to face persecution, but let us face it knowing that they are just crying out for us to hear the cries emanating from their darkness, to see someone who carries the glory of God, and who is bold enough to give it to them.
We pray for increase in revelation, and we release our natural revelation and ways of doing things, for Your ways.
You have called us to Yourself, not as slaves, but as sons and daughters. We are crying out for the ability to rise up, from first falling on the floor at Your feet, and beholding Your glory. Let Your name be known and properly represented on the earth through us. AMEN!
Come on, let us arise, let go of the past and go forward!
If you don’t understand why you have gone through, what you went through, praise Him anyway. Resist the enemy and he has to flee.
TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL – IN THE NAME OF GOD 2:59-7:32
Even when you are offering up a sacrifice of praise … still praise.
Because that is how we win. Always win.
Because the earth is waiting for you … and it’s time. You are prepared now by crying out to Him.
Come on, it’s time to shout now!
