It is my prayer that today’s message sparks something within you and inspires you to find your flow and walk in what God had called you to do. Many believers have been so focused on the opinions of others and distracted from the Lord and His Kingdom. It’s time to get radical for God and stop worrying about the opinions of others. Boldly rise up for Jesus so that your life will speak for you in the end!
It is often during the times when we celebrate the lives of our departed loved ones that we find ourselves examining the quality of our own lives. We often ponder on legacy and begin to examine all of the ways in which we are making an impact in this world. As I recently went to bury one of my loved ones who passed away, I came to this question: What will your life SPEAK? What will others be able to say about your life when you are no longer here? What is the story that they will tell? Will they say that you were a person who had so much potential, but didn’t bring it out? Will they speak of how anointed you were, yet nothing came forth? When it’s all said and done, what will your life say about you? If you’ve found yourself feeling a bit uneasy from answering these questions, then maybe it’s time to get this thing right!
It Takes Courage
There is an identity crisis hitting the land, where many people (even believers) are not walking in the fullness of who they are. Many people in the body of Christ don’t know who they are. Because of this, we find that some individuals often attempt to blindly walk in the shoes of others and operate in a flow that God has not called them to.
It’s time to get honest and ask the Father: “Lord, what would you have me to do?”
You will find out who you are on your knees in prayer. You find out what you were created to do by first connecting with the Creator. This is something that we all need to be reminded of today: stay in the lane that God has given you. If you don’t know what your lane is, then you can find it on your knees in prayer! Yes, there are oily prophets and fiery apostles who bear fruit and are heavily anointed to help you birth what the Lord has placed on the inside of you. But whether they prophesy or minister to you, you will not be able to carry your Kingdom assignment out until you get before God yourself. You have got to know who you are in God for yourself!
What is YOUR identity?
When you are aware of your identity, that is the very thing that you are going to play out in the Earth. What do you believe about who God has called you to be and who He says that you are?
I pray for the spirit of courage over you today. I believe that the spirit of courage needs to come alive in many believers. Walking in the calling that God has given you surely takes courage. Whatever the Spirit of the Lord is directing, instructing, and moving you to do, whatever He is moving you to say, and whatever He is releasing out your belly, then that is what you should be doing in this season!
The Father’s Business
Don’t become so caught up in the opinions of others that you miss God. We often talk about spirits of perversion, lust, pride, and all the other well-known spirits that people must be delivered from. But I believe that two of the most powerfully dangerous strongholds that a person must be delivered from is first themselves and also others.
“Did you not know that I must be about my Father’s business?” – Luke 2:49
When you stand before the Lord, this is the scripture that should be in your mouth, in your spirit, and etched on the tablet of your heart. When you stand before the Lord, nobody else is going to be there–not even your family. You must know God for yourself! When it’s all over, it is going to be about you and God. He is going to consider whether or not you’ve walked this thing out in the Earth with the grace for the assignments to do what He has called you to do.
If God has called you to be an intercessor, then you must intercede!
If He has called you to unlock others, then you must unlock!
If He has called you to demonstrate His power in the Earth that the glory will be released through you, then you must release the glory!
If God has called you to author books and share your testimony, then you must share and get those books done!
Whatever He has called you to do, do it unto the glory of the Lord! We all have work to do!
Don’t Be Afraid
If today’s message applies, I come against the spirit of fear that has been trying to smother and sabotage you. It is the spirit of fear that tries to keep you from obeying God, and causes you to be afraid of men and their faces.
“Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.” – Jeremiah 1:8
“Whatever you do, work at it with your whole being, for the Lord and not for men.” – Colossians 3:23
Meditate on this scripture. Simply pray out: “Lord, deliver me from people!”. I want you to take note of something: believe it or not, there have been people who have tried to shut me down. My husband and I have even been in meetings with other multi-millionaires and CEOs of companies that tried to shut our mouths. People have mocked and misunderstood us, criticizing how much we talked about Jesus. Yet and still, be encouraged that when God is on your side, He will surely back you! No matter what they say, be not afraid of men and their faces! You work for the Lord, be delivered from people! God will prepare you for whatever lies ahead. Be encouraged that He has prepared you for the assignment. Many of the very things that you have endured and suffered and the circumstances that have hit your household, God was preparing you to go forth. You have to open up your mouth and declare what God has told you to declare–and you cannot be afraid of their faces. There is FIRE on the inside of you!
Have you found yourself feeling agitated, frustrated, and even spiritually constipated? Meaning that you have so many things in storage building up on the inside of you. In the words of Jeremiah, it may feel like fire shut up in your bones. Then you must get those things out! You are pregnant with destiny! You are carrying something and it’s time to push out your purpose. It will be much like a mother who begins to nest as she gets ready to birth her baby. She begins to feel agitated because there is something on the inside of her and it has to come forth.
It’s time to give birth. God wants you to step out in this season!
Rather than the opinions of others, you must be more concerned about what God wants you to do. How does He want to use YOU in this season and beyond?
Be Bold & Radical for God!
God is our Mighty Deliverer, and He will release a fire that will bring forth deliverance through the land to deliver us from the opinions of people and even ourselves. He will even deliver us from the desire to always be understood by others. The truth is, you are going to be misunderstood by many, but will you still go forth in what God has called you to do? He graciously gives us the ability and grace to walk out this thing in the Earth.
Jesus was our perfect example who was bold and fierce about the Father’s business. May He use up everything that He placed on the inside of you for His glory. May you choose to be like Jesus who was so adamant about completing the will of the Father. May you also be fierce for the Lord! Keep your eyes stayed on Him with laser focus in this season. The Bible tells us that the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force (Matthew 11:12). Stop allowing your mouth to be shut! There are things that you are called to snatch back in the spirit
and also in the natural realm. I pray for your strength and that you will obey God. May you gain such a fiery zeal for God that your passion goes to another level. Be bold about your faith and the Father’s Business!
How bold will you choose to be in this season?
Will you rise up for Jesus?
Will you take back the territory and everything that the enemy has taken from you?
Who are you called to be?
What will your life speak when it’s all said and done?
God wants to use you! Will you let Him? It’s time for you to walk in your purpose. May you receive a new level of courage and boldness today! Become RADICAL for Christ and SET ABLAZE in this season!
