    TRUSTING NOT DOUBTING To be ALL IN is just in and of itself such a huge concept! Those words are very sobering to me. It means that there are some adjustments that God is asking His people for—all of us. It means there are areas that can be improved. We know that we are righteous because of Jesus putting us in right standing with the Father again, but the way we live our lives is living proof of how we trust God. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that we are not called to live a “life of ease.” Instead of pleasing ourselves, we need to apply ourselves to please Him. To me, one of the greatest challenges we all face is to continually trust Him completely. Trust means: • belief that someone or something is reliable, good and honest • you can rely on one’s character, ability, strength and truth • you can place yourself totally in someone’s possession That means there may be a sacrifice for us in our choices. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord. Psalm 4:5 NKJV   Trust is the exact opposite of doubt. Doubt means: • to be

    THE CHURCH MUST RECOGNIZE THEIR AUTHORITY We know that the Holy Spirit lives within us, and that He is the revelator that we need to bring transformation for us to be ALL IN. We can’t do it without Him, but we don’t have to! There is more good news. The good news of the Gospel also carries the transforming power and authority to change others’ lives. It has been given to us as the Church of Jesus Christ! 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:18-19 NKJV   Jesus is going to build His Church. The Church is going to advance. The gates of hell and the plans of the enemy will never be able to defeat a blood-bought believer who knows who they are through Him. We have been given keys of power and we have keys of authority. We

    TRANSFORMED BY RENEWED MINDS All the people I talk to say that there is some area of their lives that they would like to be more victorious in. They struggle in the natural but mostly they struggle in their minds. I highly recommend Joyce Meyer’s best-selling book, Battlefield of the Mind. It is her best-seller because of the awareness people have that they need to change their minds before they can change the outcome of their lives. This can be confusing to many Christians because of what is declared in Corinthians: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV   So what is the deal? We are absolutely delivered from darkness into His marvelous light at salvation. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love. Colossians 1:13 NKJV   We must realize we all started out the same. All of us are born into this world as children of Adam, born into sin, and therefore we were also separated from the purposes that God made us for. Oh but

    POSITIONED We must realize that God is so ALL IN that He gave His Son in order for us to become His sons and daughters. First, we must recognize how God honored Jesus and where He is positioned right now. Which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places. Ephesians 1:20 KJV   So here we know Jesus is sitting at the right hand of the Father. Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come. Ephesians 1:21 KJV   We know that God is HIGH ABOVE our enemy and any tactic that he has—above every name, including every name of sickness, disease or malady, now and forever. And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the Church. Ephesians 1:22 KJV   Here we find US—the Church that He is the head of—over everything, and He didn’t leave us out of the equation. He included us in this: Which is His body, the fullness

    AS UNTO THE LORD! There is only one way to really continue to be ALL IN, and that is if we have settled it in our hearts and minds that everything we do, say and think is going to be UNTO HIM!! This is not just something I thought up, it is in the Word, and it reiterates the beautiful message the Lord wants us to get on the inside of us and concentrate on this year: And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17 NKJV   It is true that the Word of God is sometimes symbolic but it is also literal. And this scripture is definitely literal. WHATEVER means “anything or everything, no matter what!” So, anything and everything you do or say, is to be done, no matter what, in such a way that it can be interpreted as gratefulness to God! Imagine what impact the Church could have if we all thought about this before we spoke or acted in any way. We should avoid allowing bad attitudes in our hearts and minds. That means we should

    UNITY God spoke to us about seamless oneness. We need to be ALL IN with God. He is God, our Partner, our All in all, and we are to be completely devoted to Him. We recognized that He was talking about the seamless oneness of the Trinity being available to us as well as our oneness with our Father. There is nothing in between us when we are sincerely ALL IN. That is not only possible, but it is essential for our spiritual growth! We are also to be those marked differently because of our unity. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! Psalm 133:1 NKJV   That means that it is not just to be individuals that are ALL IN, but for us to be ALL IN with each partner. That is easy to say, but you know we all come from different backgrounds, and we all have different ways we were brought up. Therefore, in almost the same way as it is in a marriage, there has to be give and take. There must be give and take in every relationship in the Body of Christ. It is vitally important

    RESOURCES Recognize God’s provision for us to be able to be ALL IN. We have been formed by God in His image and in His likeness, and we have also have all been invested in by God. He has given to us all Time, Talent, Energy and Finance. TIME Everyone has the same exact number of hours in a day–twenty-four hours to be exact. And it is what we do with them that will make a difference for others, as well as ourselves. It can and will ultimately make a difference for eternity! Imagine the fact that we have the ability to enlarge heaven and decrease hell’s population. But we do! It will take us deciding what is important and a priority of our time. What we choose to give ourselves to can determine someone else’s life. If we are ALL IN, then we should be ALL IN for looking for the way to spend our precious moments with God so that we have precious moments FROM God to change someone else’s life. TALENT Everyone has gifts. We call them talent but the truth is that talent is just gifts that have been grown by embracing them and utilizing them.

    BOLDNESS Boldness is not a suggestion for ALL IN Christians. The definition of boldness here is “showing or requiring a fearless, daring spirit.” That is not to say we are rude. It does not mean for Christians to push their way on others, but it certainly means that we are not afraid of being bold to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.Jesus makes this very clear in this statement: 32 Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 10:32-33 NKJV   Well, you may be saying, “This isn’t such an easy fasting guide.” That is why we are fasting. We must keep our body under submission to our spirit to even read these verses and take them to heart! Deny here means “those who disavow, contradict or refuse Him before man.” So we need to evaluate before the Holy Spirit if we truly are living our lives in a contradiction to His characteristics that He says we should have. If someone asks us, “Why is JESUS the only way to

    OBEDIENCE Obedience is another important word and aspect in every Christian life. It is a principle of God in both the Old and the New Testament (Covenant). And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 11:13 NKJV   This is the same commandment that Jesus told His disciples. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. Mark 12:30 NKJV   And Jesus goes on to tell us the other commandment that is equally important: And the second, like it, is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. Mark 12:31 NKJV   We have to be ALL IN in our LOVE first for God with all that we are, all that we do, all that we think and we have to be ALL IN in our love for others. Let’s face it, loving God is usually so much easier than loving people, because

    VISION Vision is “the ability to see or dream, especially as part of a religious or supernatural experience.” Vision is necessary if we are to accomplish anything in the Kingdom of God. I am not talking about natural vision, but we must see as God sees things. That means we do not just look at things as they appear to be, but we get to look through spiritual lenses to see everything as He sees it. And our Father sees everything through eyes of love and through spiritual revelation. Abraham got to know that God was his reward because of a vision he had in the night. After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” Genesis 15:1 NKJV   It was a revelation of the giving God that he served. It killed the fear that was trying to steal away his coming reward. Vision that the Lord gives us will always cause us to see past the present circumstances. Abraham couldn’t figure out how he could be the father of many nations as he was still childless. He appeared childless.
