Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh start. A new day to rise and faithfully seek the will of God for our lives. He has a good, good plan for you. One that will amaze you and leave you shaking your head at its goodness. As we continually submit and ask the Lord to work in us and through us, He can and will do the impossible with our lives!
And our identity was chosen and preplanned before the foundations of the very earth. The Lord planned YOU and chose YOU even BEFORE He spoke the world into existance. You were planned, chosen, decided on, formed and fashioned for this very moment in history to make an impact in the earth. You have all of heaven’s power backing you up and filling you with strength and power to move about the earth as an ambassador for the kingdom of God.
An ambassador is a voice who speaks on behalf of another nation: mediating between two kingdoms. That is YOU! Mediating between heaven and earth by speaking the love of Jesus to people, sharing the good news of Jesus, loving on those around you, and speaking the truth in love. Your prayers, your worship, your faith accesses the powers of heaven and brings them into the earth to shift and change and shake things to look more like heaven here. As in the Lord’s prayer we pray, “on earth as it is in heaven.” We can access part of our inheritance now as a royal priesthood because of what Jesus has done on the cross, and we are called to walk on the earth as Jesus did. Accessing the power of the Father through Holy Spirit. Jesus even promised it. He said we would do even greater things because He was ascending to heaven and sending the Advocate ( Holy Spirit.)
Friends, we were never designed to walk the earth powerless, but instead filled with the Holy Spirit, we are called to lay hands on the sick and see them recover, to speak and spread God’s word with fervor and love, to speak and live each day as if we believe wholeheartedly that every promise in the bible is true.
Last week I wrote all week about stepping out of the boat and into the water to do the impossible just like Peter. And on Friday, God spoke so clearly to me, I stopped in my tracks and just stood there awestruck. There is a 3 day conference at my church coming up. I had been giving it only a slight thought. Honestly, it scared me. I desired to go, but fear kept me from signing up. So Friday morning, I opened the website to check it out and possibly sign up. Friends, it hit me. The conference is called: Stepping Out!!!! And the verse on the front cover of the website: Peter being called out of the boat by Jesus!!! Is God amazing or what?! So clear, so faithful, He prepared my heart all week to give me courage to know He is calling me forward!
Fear will no longer keep me in the boat! I signed up for the conference, took the time off of work, and here I come Jesus. Getting out of the boat and trusting that where He calls, He equips.
The same is for you. He has something on your heart. A place He is calling you. Keep listening, keep trusting, and when He leads, be prepared to get out of your comfort and safety zone to experience His full goodness as He uses you to advance the kingdom that you are an ambassador for: Heaven!!!!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for trusting us with Holy assignments. Thank you for making us ambassadors for Christ. Keep us walking in truth on the paths You have ordained for us long ago. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
