We are a part of a people God has produced to penetrate the veil of the ordinary. We are a golden, holy storehouse of God's potential. We have the life in us to liberate literally the entire world.
We are to become history-makers and world-changers. God has determined the exact time of our births. Truly, each one of us is in the Kingdom for such a time as this (see Esther 4:14).We were placed on earth for a special assignment (our DESTINY in Christ).
AFFIRMATIONS: I dominate my mind and my body with my spirit since I maintain my spirit properly -- feeding, strengthening, and dominating my inner man with the Word.
There may be some things in my life that I need to curse, because those things are hindering me from bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God.
For Christians to endure and prevail in the battles of life, more than anything else, we must have a vision for going higher into God's PURPOSE for our lives. This allows us to soar high above any of the conditions or problems of this world. Ephesians 2:10 - "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."
Many, who ought to be in awe of the Spirit of Christ within them, have settled instead for a mere theology about Jesus Christ.
Matthew 5:13,14,16 -- "You are the salt of the earth......You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
This is not a time for passive, non-committed Christianity. We are called to become the bold, passionate, and powerful end-time army that confronts compromise and raises the standard ever higher. We are in a time of swift advancement and acceleration. The Spirit of God sets things in order, bringing about divine purpose -- standing ready to move, aiding all who seek to establish the King in His Kingdom (see Hebrews 1:14).
The Spirit of the Lord is calling for the Lord's army to arise, taking hold of the Kingdom with true spiritual power and force. Remember, the Lord stated that forceful saints would take the Kingdom of Heaven. "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force" (Matthew 11:12 NASB).
Lord, I come as a living sacrifice, putting all that I am and have on the altar to be consumed by the fire of Your love. Amen
Matthew 14:28 - "And Peter answered him, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water." He said, "Come." So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus."
Sometimes in our own minds we justify waiting in the boat, not realizing it is just our natural mind wanting to know every detail. Thinking to ourselves, "Well, maybe I ought to just sit in the boat a little bit longer – after all, we want to have wisdom." Do you think Peter did that? No. He got out of the boat of his comfort zone before his natural feelings could jump in to dictate the next step.
If we're going to have the glory of the Lord dwell within us, we're going to have to take action and go after the Lord's presence just like King David and Solomon went after the ark of the covenant.
God changed the way Abraham talked so that he called forth what God saw him as already blessed with (Genesis 17:5). Change the way you talk. See the way God meant it to be, and start calling it forth. "God gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did." - Romans 4:17
Endeavor seven times a day to withdraw from business and company and lift up your soul to God in private retirement.
As you stop your mind, and you direct your attention inward to your spirit where He abides -- you are willfully knocking on the door that divides the earthly realm from His realm; you are seeking Him.
"Knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." - Luke 11:9,10
If you desire both the world and the intimate knowledge of God, the image of God becomes distorted. You do not truly know Him; you know a different Jesus.
"Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it." - Mark 8:34-35
