"When life is rosy, we may slide by without knowing Jesus, with imitating Him and quoting Him and speaking about Him. But only in suffering will we know Jesus." -Joni Earekson Tada

The problem is not with the detailed messages, or that you desire to receive all the details from Me. That's a good thing; it's a strength to be able to receive the specifics. But then, once you receive the message, you need to go back over it and ask Me where to start, and be willing to start with just one small thing, one small step of obedience. Otherwise, the details overwhelm you, and in the end you wind up putting it all on the shelf and not doing any of it.

More on the Keys - What the Future Holds

The basic criterion to keep in mind when you face these things is: Anything which holds you back or even threatens to hinder you from fulfilling what I've told you is My highest will is an obstacle to be overcome!

Each test that you pass, your faith will increase tenfold in that area. Each time you stretch your faith in obedience, in trust, in stepping out to do, to believe, your capacity will increase, your anointing will shine brighter, and you'll be walking in the power of the activated gift that is within you.

Saturday, April 19, 2008 The "Power" state of evangelism

It is the realization that God is using us as part of a plan much greater than our lives that moves us into the power stage of evangelism. Of course, God's plan for us is always bigger than our lives. But when we finally take hold of that purpose, experience God's power, and allow ourselves to be used to preserve life or build up the church or influence the policies of a corporation or a country, then we will have truly accepted His charge over our lives.

How will we feel in this "power" stage of evangelism? We will probably experience a sense of smallness, of inadequacy, of relying completely on God's power because we have none of our own. That is exactly as it should be, and it is the only way in which we will be truly effective. And because the situation we were first called to has now changed, we are brought back to step one, where we listen for God's prophetic Word all over again. He may be calling us to a new situation or to a different aspect of our current one. But we will now have a fresh opportunity to travel through these steps with deeper faith and confidence.

Thursday, April 17, 2008 Here's what you're supposed to do...

Mama: Here's what you're supposed to do: Just do the best you can each day. Commit to the Lord what you can't get done‚ and if you're doing your best, going to the Word and seeking the Lord for His counsel and guidance and then obeying what you read or hear, you're doing all you can. As Jesus said of the woman of old, "She hath done what she could" (Mk.14:8). Do what you can, and that's all you can do. Pretty simple, isn't it? (Leadership Lessons, Pt2, ML3385: 61)
