Recently I was watching this show on T.V. and there was a teenage girl doing something incredibly brave and gutsy on a horse. As I watched her, I thought to myself, this girl has guts. I instantly heard the Lord say, “This is how I want you, My sons and daughters to be with Me. I want you to believe Me so much that you will be brave, courageous, and gutsy to do what I tell you to do. I want you to be so ‘gutsy’ that you will step out in WHATEVER I tell you to do and not hold back, so gutsy that you will do things never been done before-at My word. Unusual, unprecedented and new is what I am releasing. I am asking you, will you trust Me? Will you do what I say? Will you do what I ask you to do? Be gutsy, be courageous for I am with you.”
I was truly overcome with emotion as I watched this and the Lord spoke to me. I couldn't hold the tears back. Which is not like me at all. His words hit my heart. Do I have the guts, the bravery to do WHATEVER He says? I ask you, Do you?
I truly believe this is the greatest time to be alive. This is the greatest time to be Sons and Daughters of God. We are truly experiencing the greatest move of God the church has ever seen and God is asking us at this moment, “Will you believe Me and do WHATEVER I say?” “It will be new, it will be bold, it will be powerful, it will be miraculous and way more than you have ever seen before.”
I hear the Lord saying, “There will be a lot of firsts. The first time I have ever asked you to do anything like this. The first time you have ever seen anything like this. The first time you have ever encountered me this way. Do not be afraid, this is Me, I will be with you in the firsts. Step out with Me. I am doing a new thing. Firsts are here. “
Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV) “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
Joshua 1:9 (NKJV) “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
It is not time to hold back, it is time to be gutsy, to be bold, to be courageous. Your Daddy God is with you. Whatever He says, do it. You were chosen for such a time as this. God chose you to be born for this time. It is the time of the NEW and the FIRSTS. Embrace what He tells you, do what He tells you. Be a trailblazer. Be the FIRST!!!
He is speaking to us. Be bold, be courageous and step out in radical faith and obedience to what He says. The harvest is ripe. The world needs what He is doing and He is choosing us to do it. The world needs who is in you, Jesus.
Ephesians 3:20 (NKJV) “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”
Get ready to be uncomfortable, to be out of your comfort zone, and to do the FIRSTS God is telling you to do. It is a new time, with new ways and new things.
Acts 19:11 (NKJV) “Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul.”
I am so excited about this word from God. I absolutely love it when God does things we do not expect and that are new. I love it when He stretches me. Every time He stretches me, I grow. I have learned through the stretching and from being uncomfortable that what He wants me to do or asks me to do is way beyond me. It is all about Him and what He wants to do. I have seen that the more ridiculous I believe Him the more ridiculous the outcome. He is a Daddy who can be trusted and He will do more than we can ask, think or imagine,
So let's all agree to be ‘gutsty' for the Lord. It is time we put down and get rid of all fear and trust Him. He will never forsake us. He will never tell us to do something and not do what He told us to do. If He said it, He will do it. Hold nothing back. Give your all to Him. Let Him use you fully for His glory. Be the FIRST to do His FIRSTS!!!! It is time to start—-- Ready, set, GO!!!!!!
