Partner Letter February 2016
What a privilege it is to be alive today. The psalmist writes in Psalms 118:24 (ESV),
“This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
No matter what the enemy has tried to do to bring you down. No matter what went wrong yesterday, it is a new day. We read in Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV),
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; 23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
If we would learn to trust the Lord and to receive His abounding grace, we have a new opportunity every day to walk in the bounty of His goodness. The devil would love to remind you of your past. Yet God has a greater instruction in Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV),
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
That speaks of Great Provision in the middle of lack. In praying for this new year I heard the word of the Lord for our partners;
GREAT PROVISION – GREAT ACCELERATION – GREAT GROWTH
I believe the Lord is wanting to do a quick work. What would have taken ten years can happen in one. What would have taken a year will be just a few months. I see months becoming two weeks! We read in Amos 9:13,
“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, “When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; the mountains shall drip with sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it.”
Look at the same verse in the New Living Translation,
“The time will come,” says the Lord, “when the grain and grapes will grow faster than they can be harvested. Then the terraced vineyards on the hills of Israel will drip with sweet wine!"
I really like the way it is written in the Message Translation,
"Yes indeed, it won't be long now." God's Decree. "Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won't be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills."
We have all faced some really serious challenges. But like Paul wrote in Philippians 3:12-15,
“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Let's keep moving forward with great faith. In expectation make room for great growth! Remember the words of Isaiah 54:2-3,
“Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. 3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left.”
My mandate from our Lord is to teach you the Word of God for you to prepare your gear for great accelerated growth and provision. I am excited to see what is about to take place in your life.
As you sow your seed this month, declare, "This is my year of GREAT PROVISION – GREAT ACCELERATION - GREAT GROWTH."
Janine and I come into agreement with your confession. We still pray for you every day and are expectant to hear your awesome testimony.
Remember, Life is a choice - choose Life.
You are blessed!
