Dear Saints of the Living God – Grace and Mercy to you and your family!
God’s promises is not giving you and me something, but instead being something. As we read in Isaiah 54:2 and 3 –
“Enlarge the place of your tent,
And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings;
Do not spare;
Lengthen your cords,
And strengthen your stakes.
For you shall expand to the right and to the left,
And your descendants will inherit the nations,
And make the desolate cities inhabited.”
As you can read, It is not like the place is filled with the people or prosperity, but living a life with an expectation. I heard one time a preachers say, “Your destiny demands transformation”. When we start to see our own life not as how we see it but instead how God view it, then it scares the enemy. That’s why the enemy is after our head, and once he keeps it in a box and then he wins. The mind is where the deliverance begins.
In June, we are going to have our first digital training center is starting, and when the whole idea was floated, there were lot of questions and concerns on how this will all come together. But the Lord brought a man named Ray, into my life, who was so determined and caught with the vision in his head – and he started moving things… here is a man, who is in the last days of his life, battling cancer, but determined to leave a legacy behind. He started stretching the curtains, lengthen the cords and strengthened the stakes. He knew that his descendants will inherit the nations… And the heavenly father, blesses the effort.
What am I saying, we need to be transformed… and have a determination like a caterpillar to give every bit of energy that we have to allow the Lord’s Metamorphic process to take place in our life. Often times, we are worried about the raw material, that’s needed to build the wall… not knowing, the heaven and earth are under His control. This morning, my prayer for you and me is, that the Lord will anoint our head with an oil, just like King David says in Psalms 23, and that we will live our lives out of promise.
Sometimes, I ask the Lord, why certain things don’t happen or getting impatient with the movement – but the Lord has always reminded me that, what I have in my heart is a seed, and the Lord is allowing it to grow and it takes certain amount of time to mature. Just like the apple tree, it takes 3 years to even have the leaves come out – but in the meantime, the seed has to be grounded and know, who they are, and not what they have.
My dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ… the one who began the good work in you, is still sitting on the throne, and He is still the King and King of kings… Use what you have and expand your tents and start digging the ditches for the blessings to flow.
May the Good Lord strengthen your head – just like Ray’s…
