Happy Monday Everyone!
Hope you all had a super amazing weekend!
On Saturday, we did a waterfall hike, then hosted Coree and Heavens friends for the first patio party of the year… went to bed late, lost an hour… and woke up EXHAUSTED Sunday morning!
On Sunday, church was OUTSTANDING… then we hosted a group that comes to our church from Richmond (a church ALIVE is worth the drive)… we all had lunch on the patio! (loving the beautiful weather) After that, Emily and I went to Bible College… all I had to do was administer an exam and introduce a new instructor! Then I wrote in my book while Emily finished her classes… then we went home and RESTED until “The Celebrity Apprentice” and LOVED every minute of that! The day ended praying with Coree and Heaven… and drifting off into the land of DREAMS! (except I didn’t have a single dream last night… highly unusual)
I woke up feeling really confident today… almost like a few thousand angles moved onto my property and they are awaiting my orders! I felt this yesterday while I was in my office getting ready to preach… and then in a BIG way while I was preaching… and this confidence still remains almost 20 hours later! Hmmm… there must be something going on. Feels to be something GOOD.
Proverbs 29:25 NIV “Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.”
Psalm 3:5-7 NIV “I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me. I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side. Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked.”
My own fear of peope and circumstances seems to be going away these days… I have never in all my life felt this secure in who I am! I have never in all my life felt this INDESTRUCTABLE! I have never in all my life felt so guaranteed of success! I almost wonder if I’m going to look out the window and see a pen of 777 chickens laying golden eggs! If I look hard enough… I see warrior angels with swords drawn against all intruders! My car looks safer than President Obamas new missile proof Cadillac! I feel a new divine FAVOR in my life… with God, angels, and humans!
All of these things I am experiencing today can be experienced by all of us in varying degrees throughout our lives. While I believe that some of my experience is attributed to the current prophetic assignment on my life… I also believe that much of this is the result of having FAITH for it!
Every biblical promise is accessed and enjoyed through FAITH. If we need healing, we believe in the biblical promise healing and we stand IN FAITH until the physical symptoms recede! If we need a restoration in one of our relationships, we STAND IN FAITH that God is able to work out all things for his glory… and we STAND BELIEVING until the relationship is restored!
When it comes to having favor and achieving success… we must BELIEVE like this! Because as long as we live under the fear of people and circumstances, we will always come up short. We become what we believe we SHOULD become… nothing more than that!
So, today… change how you believe about your current situation! Start to believe God that there is an ASSIGNMENT on your life… and you cannot fail as long as you go forward! Rise above the low expectations of others… climb up over every disempowering voice… the real ones, and the ones whispered from demon spirits in dark places. Believing like you are a CHAMPION is the biggest hurdle to becoming a CHAMPION!
I pray that each of you get a little caught up in my personal experience today… I pray that you also rise above your fears to be MIGHTY throughout this next decade! God bless you all… leave your comments… let’s chat throughout the day!
