Some words we receive from God are about healing us from our past. Some words we receive are about preparing us for the future. But we need to know how to receive and possess the NOW word of God for our lives.
The problem is we’ve become so accustomed to reminiscing on the past or waiting for the future that we have forgotten how to possess what God is doing in our present.
When God speaks, stuff happens. One word from God can change everything in our lives. When God’s ready to move in your life, he opens his mouth and declares it through the spoken word. God calls those things that are not as if they were.
Gods word makes a way, where there is no way. When Israel were facing the Red Sea with the Egyptian army bearing down on them, their only choice was to partner with the word of God and lift up the rod of authority and speak to the sea to MOVE! God’s given us a rod of authority. It’s called the sword of the Spirit and with it we can open our mouths and speak to mountains to be removed.
Gods plan will be established despite mans agenda. The heart of man plans his way but the Lord orders his steps. We must have a flexible heart thats sensitive to God’s Spirit. he who is flexible will not be broken. Time with God in prayer is where God performs spiritual surgery on our hearts and reveals his thoughts and ways that are contrary to ours.
God is doing a NEW thing. God’s into new songs, new moves of His Spirit and making new creations BUT he won’t do a new thing through an old mindset. Mt 9:17 New wine is not put into old wineskins. New wine is put into new wineskins.
Embracing the NEW requires letting go of the old. There’s a reason why your rear view mirror is smaller than your front windscreen. Where you’re going is more important than where you’ve been. Too many people crash in life because they refuse to stop looking at their lives through the rear view mirror.
Embracing the new requires seizing the NOW word of God. God wants to do something in your life NOW. God’s been at work in your past. He’ll be there in your future but he’s at work right NOW. Discern the season you are in and suck the life out of it. God’s kairos is that God appointed window of opportunity when His call goes out to those who will discern and seize what God is saying. Seize God’s kairos in your life and watch God move powerfully on your behalf.
