I pray this letter finds you well and living from the joy of the Lord despite any obstacle, trial or mountain you may be facing in this season. I am reminded of a command the Holy Spirit spoke to me a number of years ago. He said, “I want you to see every obstacle through the lens of my favor.” While I was still learning and applying the implications of that statement, I knew immediately the idea God was seeking to communicate to me. He wanted me to see every situation contrary to the word of God and purpose of God in my life through the favorable outcome God so passionately wanted to give me. God has also spoken prophetically that 2020 and beyond would be a time of divine turnaround for the body of Christ:
2020 will be known as the year of the divine turnaround. Did I not say that I would cause all things to work for my people’s certain good? This will be a unique season on the earth. I will turn all things around for My people’s certain good. For My certain good I am redeeming mistakes, failed businesses, failed ministries, failed relationships, missteps, mishaps, and where time has been lost. Even for individuals
where the purpose of God was lost in their life, I am ordaining things for My certain good. Great, great, grace is being released to My people. They will be delivered from mistakes, wrong turns, wrong attitudes, wrong motives, and wrong heart positioning. What defined your past can no longer define your future. If you are intentional in turning towards Me and leaning into Me for wisdom, I will cause all things to work
for your certain good.
This is my encouragement to you this month: This is a season of perhaps the greatest break through the body of Christ has ever experienced around the world! This is a season to be defined not by your difficult circumstances but by the promise of God! God is releasing a greater grace to keep standing for those who have grown weary in well doing and perhaps have been tempted by the enemy to quit. To experience the breakthrough that God is releasing in this season, I want to offer simple biblical values that, as I have endeavored to practice as a lifestyle, have caused me see God’s provision:
- Locate God’s promise to you as it relates to your circumstances (we have provided the following resource I believe you will find quite helpful.
- Make an intentional decision to be moved only by what God has promised, not what you see.
- Meditate continually and declare God’s promise of provision.
- Ask God if He requires any corresponding action on your part. If so, obey quickly!
- Be sure you are practicing the fundamentals of faith (i.e. fellowship w/ God, Bible study, active participant in a community of believers, quick to forgive).
I bless you today in the name of Jesus to walk in the divine turnaround that God is releasing to His body in this season! May you recover all that the enemy has stolen and advance the Kingdom in an unusual and unprecedented manner in this season! Thank you once again for faithfully standing with the vision and purpose God has given this ministry. Together we are advancing the Kingdom of God around the world.
The month of March is filled with international ministry. By the time you read this, I will be ministering with a team in Rwanda and later in the month I will be in Europe for 12 days ministering in Germany and Iceland. I ask that you continue to stand with us that God would pour out His Spirit in these nations and that I would fulfill the assignment for which He has sent me to these nations.
