I pray this letter finds you alive in the purposes of God! I continue to be so encouraged by what I am witnessing in this season in the Body of Christ. Recently on my visit to Omaha, Nebraska, the power and glory of God were released in such a powerful way! This season in the earth is truly one of greater glory and power! Thank you for your continued support of this ministry and God’s assignment upon my life. Your support allows the “God moments” that took place in Omaha to continue around the world.
Last month I encouraged you that by the grace of God you would make a fresh commitment to say “Yes” to whatever God asks of us. I have learned that living a lifestyle of continually saying “Yes” is directly related to learning to think like God. Our predominant behavior is a result of our belief system. Our belief system has been created by what we have come into agreement with. God gives us the gift of His Word (logos and rhema) to shape our thinking as He intends. Our responsibility as His sons and daughters is to receive His Word continually via the gift of faith. As we receive the Word of God by faith, the Word finds entrance into our hearts in seed form. The seed of that Word has the ability to fulfill and to transform us exactly as God intends. For the Word to bear the fruit that God intends, it must be cultivated.
One of the essential keys to cultivating the Word of God is the discipline of meditation. Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance defines meditation as: To murmur (in pleasure or anger); to ponder, imagine, meditate, mourn, mutter, roar, speak, study, talk, utter. Our born-again re- created spirit was intended to hear, listen and respond to the Word of God. As we feed our spirit with the Word of God, our internal reality (Luke 17:21) is shaped in conformity to God’s operating system for us, which is His mind (I Corinthians 2:16). A fruit of meditation is that it also exposes dysfunctional areas of our thinking (Hebrews 4:12) and allows us to embrace correct thinking.
The biblical discipline of meditation of the Word of God is one of the most wonderful and beautiful practices that God has gifted to humanity. My encouragement to you is to refuse to allow your heart to be defined by what you see, feel and think, but rather allow your belief system to define your outside environment. Meditate upon scripture, declare the scripture, and see the manifestation of scripture in every area of your life. The Body of Christ is about to inherit territory that God has desired for us since before the foundation of the world. One of the essential keys to manifestation is that the people of God would take great delight in meditating on the Word of God. God is releasing grace to meditate and delight in His Word as never before (Joshua 1:8-9).
In closing, please make sure to join us for our School of the Supernatural June 1-2, 2018, in Raleigh, North Carolina, at Cornerstone Church. Our special guest will be Pastor Al Brice and worship will be with Robert Cole and his team. I also want to hear your testimonies of what God is doing in your life, along with praise reports and any prayer requests you may have. Please send them to my assistant, Donna Key, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to come into complete agreement for what you are believing God for.
Thank you once again for your continued love and support of this ministry!
