Pulling Through The Promise

imageThis is now part 3 of this weeks blog series prepping for the New Year!

Part 1: Against All Hope
Part 2: Can You Bear It

In all areas we are pressing for this revolution! That we not only be that participant of a revolution but that we become the revolutionists! Just like Caleb—he was DIFFERENT! He came in agreement with GOD for that promised land! He was another example of a key pioneer!

“But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.”
Numbers 14:24

This year we will be striving for revolutionary relationships! For our marriages, churches, homes and those that we define as the real friend that sticks closer than a brother. We will move from the friendship to sisterhood and brotherhood. That we excel to find those IN Christ as we seek to grow. It is not to leave anyone out but that we know who we latch on to that will propel us further into our destiny and not derail us from it! There has been way too many parasites coming forth that have hindered us all throughout the years and that has to cease. We are here to help each other out not drown each other… We want to seek to better ourselves and others and that must happen with a revolutionary mindset. That must happen with a kingdom mindset. That must happen with change.

For way too long the world has encouraged to seek after “numero uno”—SELF and what that actually does is destroy self and any one else that even tries to come close. Now it is learning how to improve self so that when we get around others it is going to be in a way that is beneficial. That is a whole new way of thinking. It is literally dissecting the book of Proverbs as it translates to handling our key relationships. Our relationship with the King, our children, our parents, our spouses, our brothers, sisters and also the friendships that need to be cultivated in the right way. There in those holy pages, it speaks to the dealings of all of that and to demonstrate improvements that will lead to flourishing, enriching and wholesome connections for life.

Many times we have failed in this area but the good news is that we learn every time we fall how we can do it better! There is a world of opportunity ahead of us. And when we take that opportunity and couple it with the scripture and prayer—the end result will be 100% fruitfulness! The past will tell us not to try. The pain will tell us to protect. The memory will tell us to quit but the bible will tell us to renew, restore and REBUILD right relationships starting with us!

This is the one time in life where you will see the difference in doing something for you that will benefit the rest. When you’ve got to do something for you that will impact. You have to make a choice to do it. No one else is going to take you there, get you there or push you there but YOU. You are going to have to decide. You are going to have to motivate you. You are going to have to preach to you. You are going to have to pray for you. You are going to have to fast for you. If you want to see it then you are going to have to do it. The waiting is only crushing you. The complacency is only delaying you.

We have to go-go-go!

Acceleration is here – four more years to 2020!

What are you going to do about it?

Where will you be?

Who will you be with?

What will you do?

How will you do it?

If God gave you a map, now you have to look at it, read it, study it, declare it, walk it out and live it out. Stop waiting for another invitation. Accelerate yourself, make the decision that this is YOUR TIME to go and grow! And who will stand beside you will be evidence of those primary decisions.

Many of us are still hanging on the balance beam. Destiny is at hand and the “I don’t know” is on the mind. We are swaying back and forth of the “I don’t know” for way too long. You can’t have someone else give you your destiny. It is not going to be handed to you. But it will have to be YOU to take hold of that destiny. It will never take root or be deposited firmly until YOU TAKE IT FOR YOU! That is the moment that becomes the maker! Everything else is just a balance. Here is where you will see who you really are and what you are made of. You have got a huge work to do!

Take it! Try Him! And watch how everything falls right into place…

To walk away is just a delay for you and you will see how nothing goes nowhere but only cause further confusion. It is time for you to set the bar, for you to raise the standards and for you to now run with it!


Stop living in the past! Stop doubting yourself! Stop letting all these things hinder your progress. The only one leaving you stuck is you… especially when you see things happening for others! There is something that can happen for you too! You keep wanting for the SAME THING that everybody else has when God is trying to give you something unique that is fit for you!

God did not forget about you! He did not leave you out. We are the ones that actually leave ourselves out every single time we stay stagnant and moping along the way! We have to become more aggressive at taking hold of our peace and our promise! You must refuse to be refused, deny to be denied and move yourself forward at all costs! Of course it is not going to be easy –you are going to bleed right through it. You are going to scream and cry but AS YOU ARE IN IT, you are going to see that you are living in the purpose of God. You are pulling through the purpose!!!

For HUGE destiny there will be HUGE opposition!

It has nothing to do with us but everything to do with God’s plan! This becomes a place –a moment—a stepping stone for you. This becomes the preparation, the rehabilitation and the deliverance so that you can reach the place where God sets off the activation for your ministry! You will be pushed, thrown, stretched and pressed as you continue down the route that leads RIGHT!

Many will be a part of the revolution in the last days but not everyone is a revolutionist! Not everyone is a pioneer—a world changer. It is those that are not just going to partake or participate but that will propel themselves into PURPOSE!

They will launch out!
They will make it happen!

They will be so uncomfortable with being comfortable. They will be the one that must do SOMETHING!

The one that can’t sit still.

The one that can’t keep watching.

The one that can’t keep waiting.


The doer!

The thinker!

The visionary!

The eagle!

Take yourself beyond the mental loop of madness! Stop living in your own personal 40 year long wilderness and WALK TO THAT PROMISED LAND! And the ones that are going to possess that land with you will WALK IT OUT TOO!

Those are the revolutionists! That have decided that doing the same thing over and over again is insanity that they REFUSE to tolerate that!

By 2016, 2018…and 2020 –it will be a WHOLE new view!
Sharp vision-2020!

Keep taking those ardent steps to your victory!
