2023 Get Ready!
Well, here we are 2023. A new year of uncertainty... The truth is there's nothing stable in this world. If you look through the eyes of the natural realm, you'd see that things have quickly spun out of control in the past few years and the future... the very mention of it brings fear and even terror to some. Hallelujah!!! When you have a relationship with Jesus... not just head-knowledge but a true intimate relationship, you have complete confidence that even in the darkest night and the fiercest storm you will not only be protected but reflect His glory in the midst of it! Don't wait until it's too late to build your spiritual muscles. You must live prepared! In this new season God is about to move in the earth in a way we've never seen before! He desires to use His children to powerfully reflect His glory in these end times. We have a mandate to be beacons of Revival Fire...a fire that shines so bright it leads multitudes to Jesus and it's so hot it purifies and brings holiness to even the vilest sinner. There are three main things that will bring about revival in our own lives and corporately.
Intimacy with Jesus: A passionate hunger to seek His face and no longer His hands! A love so great that it causes us to desire His presence above all else, combined with an insatiable appetite for His Word!
Repentance and Holiness: A deep desire to please God in every way, mingled with the realization of just how undone we really are... don't ever think you have come too far to cry out in repentance. As you draw closer to Him, you'll realize how much higher you need to go, and the stark comparison of our heart compared to His.
Obedience: This comes with total surrender and nothing less. God did not create and save us so that He could be our genie who answers our every whim. Yes, He so graciously blesses His Children but never forget that you were created for His special purpose. We must remain close enough to Him to hear His heart and follow His lead.
Don't waste another second of this precious life He's given you. Make every moment count as you seek His face, study His Word, and do His will. There's a harvest ripe for the picking and all that's needed is YOU! ALL OF YOU!!
Read Psalms 91
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV) If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
James 4:7-8 (NKJV) Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
1 Chronicles 16:11 (NKJV) Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore!
Jeremiah 33:3 (NKJV) ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
Acts 2:17-18 (KJV) And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.
