I know we like to think that we have all the time in the world to do what God has called us to do, but that isn't true. In fact, I believe that the hyper-grace culture that we live in has warped our perception of God. Yes, God is our Father, but He's also a King. Yes, we must worship Him in spirit, but we must also balance it with truth. I'm trying to get you to understand that your time may be running out and that your replacement is ready.
Since we stepped into the Hebrew Year 5784, a year of the open door, God has been speaking to me about time and His timing. Indeed, we are supposed to live according to prophetic timelines and timetables, but many don't; therefore, we miss vital opportunities. Friend, you must understand that some opportunities won't come back around.
With this in mind, He's also been very adamant about us guarding our minds and challenging the fantasies that live rent-free there. These fantasies are not just vain imaginations sent from hell, but they are destiny snatchers. The reason I am clarifying them as such is because they are sent to slow you down and cheat you out of the promise that you're so close to receiving.
While I believe that God wants us all to enter the open doors this year, many of us won't because we will allow our mouths to close them. If you participated in last year's "Let There Be Challenge, " you know how important your words are. I don't believe you're naive, but sometimes frustration causes us to forget how we legislate every time we speak. So, what are your imaginative thoughts trying to convince you to confess?
When I was studying recently, I learned that when words come out of your mouth, they go into the "control and possession of another." Who is "the other" in this case? Either your angels or your opponent, yours truly, satan, the devil. Essentially, he needs your words to create a new strategic plan to launch against you. I hope you refuse to help him out.
I say all this to say, friend, that the warfare is strategic. I'm sure you know that, but do you know that your replacement is ready? Many of us think God would never choose another to do what He's called us to do, but that's not true. In fact, yesterday, I used two biblical case studies to show you that not only is your replacement available, but that they are ready to step into the leading role the moment you choose not to make another decision to choose God.
Are you willing to hand over your reward to your understudy? I sure hope not because you worked so hard for it. Check out yesterday's teaching, "Proof Your Replacement is Ready" and use it as a sobering reminder that everyone is replaceable.
P.S. If you find yourself in need of additional resources, here are two that I highly recommend:
