The NOW Word of God!

Isaiah 43:19 ‘Now it springs forth, do you not perceive it.’

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.

Seize the Day!

Matthew 6:34 ‘Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.’

Every single one of us have been given 24hrs each day. Whether you are the US president, a pastor, a police officer or a patient mother, we all have only 24hrs to fill. What are you doing with your 24hrs?

A lot can be accomplished or very little can be accomplished, it’s all in how you approach each day. Everyday I look for a few key things because I’ve discovered that everyday has something for me to grow in or discover that I wasn’t previously aware of.

Everyday I look for the God encounter. I want to meet with God daily and have him ‘wow’ me again in some area of my life and ministry. I want to live life with an ethos of amazement. I’m intentional about this and so I carve out specific time to meet with him. Out of the overflow of my intimacy with him, he amazes me in both small and great ways throughout the rest of the day.

Everyday I look for something to grow in. Life never ceases to provide opportunities for all of us to grow in some way or another. I want to take something away from each day that adds value to my world and that enhances my personal growth.

Everyday I look for God’s purpose. At the end of my day, I want to know for what purpose did I breathe today. Was it simply to relax and enjoy my family or was it to accomplish something in my ministry? Everyday has purpose written all over it. You just need to stop and reflect on what purpose each day is for.

As you navigate each day with God, you can see God weaving together his master plan in your life and positioning you where he wants you to be and what he wants you to do. Don’t get caught up so much in tomorrow that you miss today. Seize the day you are in and suck as much out of it as God will allow you to.
