Hello my friends – Hope you are well in the Lord today!
The last few days I keep having a thought in my spirit – “establish Trail Blazers” so I feel at this time I can share a little – I have been kicking it around for about four days!
So what is a “Trail Blazer”?If we would look in the beginning of Acts – those men were Trail blazers – they were bringing the power and movement of the Holy Spirit wherever they went – they we experiencing manifestations of the Lord as they never have seen before.
Such manifestations as signs, wonders, healing, and salvation – They went out with the understanding that they had something to give – and that was the Holy Spirit.They didn’t speak with persuasive words, but in power, through the Holy Spirit –
They were setting the trail for generations to follow! Are you ready to set the trail for the next generation???
So who can be a “Trail Blazer” – You can be one!The Lord is looking for anyone to say – Here I am, use me – pretty simple!I believe it is rooted in our love for who He is and all that He is about – in that Love, we blossom into who we were created to be – through grace, mercy and power we begin to set a trail.
This does not mean we walk away from our foundation or church – but we push the spiritual atmosphere to the edge of the authority we have at this time and place in your walk.We do not neglect disciple or leadership, but we strive to stand with them to motivate them to go deeper into the things of God.
A trail blazer is one that sees the potential of the Kingdom of God having a collision with the earth that brings about the supernatural through His spirit.
Guess what?His spirit works through you!You are the vessel that brings such an encounter to your community or church outside of the sovereignty of God!He created us to house such power but to walk a humble life – what an amazing God.
A trail blazer has a daily prayer life and out of that, the Lord reveals what path to take.Releases wisdom and revelation on the next step to walk out that will lead to an encounter.They have a heart to see and hear from Heaven and realize that they are capable to have this type of relationship with Him!
A trail blazer is someone that seeks out the positive potential in a church.They see past the mundane lifestyle that may be present and comes along in love, humility and grace to release an awareness of the potential of the Holy Spirit.They seek out the Hand of the Lord to show His power – they have a heart to pray through the apathy of the body because they sense the Love the Father has for His children.
A trail blazer has the ability through Jesus, to speak and encourage a body to see that there is more then what they are experiencing.They begin to have a bond within the Leadership (if they are open).A trail blazer is not a “solo act” but he or she knows that they need others to help create new paths, to dig new wells and prepare the wine skins for His outpouring!
A trail blazer can be a man or woman that has a daily job, but has come to a point in their walk that they know there is more and if they ask, the Lord is faithful to move upon their prayer and desire to see His spirit have His way upon a meeting.I believe many “trail blazers” are going to be people in this particular state.It could be your mailman, your cashier, school teacher, your boss, you fitness instructor – wait a minute – IF CAN BE YOU!
Being a trail blazer is a lifestyle – I do not believe it is a season, but someone that has had a change of view of who they are in the Lord and has come to a place of faith and assurance in Jesus.
There are many great men and women that have walked or still walking this earth today that we can say – they are trail blazers – Look what the Lord did through them to help promote His Kingdom, and that is what this is all about –promoting the Kingdom to see the Lost come to Jesus!
I will say – Lord I want to be a Trail Blazer – I want to fulfill all that you created me to be – Help me to see and walk as you lead.
So where do we need trail blazers?I would say, from the inner working of the church – those that govern the daily working of the church to those that have the gift of helps and hospitality.In every avenue of the Church the Lord is looking and calling people to set the standard for others to come to.
This doesn’t mean that we are any more special to the Lord, not at all – some are called to lead and some are to follow – but show others how to follow as they set the example.There is always someone looking at how you handle yourself – it doesn’t matter if you are in leadership or not – your walk is just as important, beautiful and special unto the Lord.
There is much more I would like to share on this topic – and I will as the Lord leads!
I hope this little blog stirs you up to go after the race that is set before you!It is time to burn away the weeds on our path and set a standard in the spirit and physical realm today!
