We traveled to Pikeville Kentucky yesterday… I’m speaking at Trinity Harvest Church tonight (7pm). The Pastors here, Richard and MaLeah Homes… AMAZING couple! We have been treated like royalty since accepting their invitation… and our time together yesterday evening was so BEAUTIFUL and BLESSED!
Matthew 10:40-42 “Anyone who receives YOU receives ME, and anyone who receives ME receives THE FATHER who sent me. If you receive a prophet as ONE WHO SPEAKS FOR GOD, you WILL BE GIVEN the same reward as a prophet. And if you receive righteous people because of their righteousness, you will be given a reward like theirs. And if you give EVEN A CUP OF COLD WATER to one of the LEAST of my followers, you will SURELY be rewarded.”
An extravagant REWARD comes to this city TONIGHT because of the way we have been RECEIVED. They gave us a refrigerator of Nestle Pure Life Water AND SO MUCH MORE! If I was God… I would BLESS THEM with a BLESSING they don’t have room enough to contain! Everything they do is excellent, their character is staggering, their faith is off the charts, their vision is NOBLE and CLEAR!
Pikeville Kentucky is known as “THE CITY THAT MOVES MOUNTAINS.” This is their slogan because of the Pikeville Cut-Through, where Pikeville MOVED A MOUNTAIN AND REROUTED A RIVER in order to significantly increase available space for development in the city. (HOW’S THAT FOR ANTICIPATION OF SUCCESS!)
The Pikeville Cut-Through is one of the largest land removal projects in the Western Hemisphere… it took 14 years to move 18,000,000 cubic yards of rock and dirt, second only to the Panama Canal project.
These people have VISION, FAITH, INITIATIVE, and GUTS like I’ve never seen before… and I cannot wait to speak to them tonight at 7pm! This should be a service for the chronicles!
DREAMING BEYOND THIS MOUNTAIN:
Sometimes, we all face MOUNTAINS standing in the way of our SIGNIFICANT FUTURE DEVELOPMENT. The lesson here is to DREAM BEYOND THE MOUNTAINS… to ENVISION FUTURE POTENTIAL beyond our current obstacles. When the picture of POTENTIAL SUCCESS is CLEAR ENOUGH… no sacrifice will ever seem too big! All the blood, sweat, and tears… it all makes sense when we know WHY WE’RE MOVING THESE MOUNTAINS.
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall SAY UNTO THIS MOUNTAIN, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall NOT DOUBT in his heart, but shall BELIEVE that those things which he saith shall come to pass; HE SHALL HAVE whatsoever he saith.
Whether it’s with a pick axe, a strong back, and shovel… or 77.6 million dollars worth of professional land movers and all their mountain moving machines… or the ROCK BREAKING words of FAITH flying from our prophetic mouths… the mountains will move!
Zechariah 4:6-8 Then he said to me, “This is what the Lord says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. NOTHING, not even a MIGHTY Mountain, will stand in Zerubbabel’s way; IT WILL BECOME A EVEL PLAIN before him! And when Zerubbabel sets the final stone of the Temple in place, the people will shout: ‘May God bless it! May God bless it!’”
Some mountains take longer to move than others. So, don’t get discouraged… and don’t ever throw in the towel. Keep your eyes on the prize… DREAM BEYOND EVERY MOUNTAIN!
I pray that todays blog adds tremendous value to your amazing lives! Maybe we will see you tonight in Pikeville… or Sunday at Destiny Family Center! Please leave you comments… I love to read them! Have a SUPER DUPER DAY EVERYONE!
