A couple of months ago as I was reviewing the word for 2015, I felt that I was to challenge you to develop your own set of core values. Why? Because the Lord impressed upon me years ago to develop my own set of values, which would become building blocks for where I wanted to go. And so I want to challenge you to do the same. We may not know exactly how these things are going to play out, but these building blocks become the keys to help us manifest our destiny. As I shared last month, the foundation for all of life is fellowship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I’ve learned over the years that God not only wants relationship with us but He also desires fellowship. A second foundation in my life is the Word of God. It must be our absolute standard. The Logos, which is the written word of God, or the Rhema, which is a specific word for a specific situation, must be of the highest value in our lives.
His Word works regardless of the situation or circumstance. It works in any region and every country and is no respecter of persons. One of the determining factors for our fruitfulness on the Earth is our value for the Word. I choose to place a high value on the things that God has spoken to me through vision or scripture. I must value what He is saying, and so should you.
I have learned that we must receive, meditate, confess, and make the Word of God our highest standard. I don’t know about you – but when I fellowship with the Holy Spirit He tells me some of the most outrageous things. And we must remember that it is the God’s will to manifest Mark 9:23; that nothing would be impossible.
A number of months ago I was struggling with something the Lord had spoken - wondering how it was even possible. It was right towards the end of the year. I was doing a run in California and I just made up my mind right then and there, not on my own strength, but on God’s, that I was going to believe the word! You see, when we receive a word it’s not our responsibility to make it happen. Our responsibility is to receive it, believe it, confess it, and be fully convinced that it is true. Let me encourage you to pray that the Holy Spirit would reveal to you any and all areas of your life where you have come into agreement with thought patterns that are contrary to the Word of God. If you believe the unbelievable you will manifest the impossible. Doing the impossible begins by first believing what God said.
As you read this I bless you to not only be a hearer of the word but also a doer of the Word. And I pray that you would experience a 100-fold return on all that G-d has spoken and will speak to you in the future!
