As we enter into 2019, I pray this letter finds you expectant of what God has purposed in His heart for you and your family in this season. Every year for the last many years usually beginning in the month of September, God begins sharing with me some of what He is speaking for the next year. This past year God once again began speaking to me prophetically concerning the new year. As we begin this year together, I want to share with you just a portion what the Holy Spirit spoke to me:
"I will accelerate the purposes of My people in the earth as never before, for the last two to three years have been a season of divine positioning for many of My people and many have stood on My word even in the midst of difficulty and storms when they could not see a way ahead. But I say to My people do not grow weary in well doing and do not lose confidence. Continue to stand on My word and stay in My word and keep My word above all else. As 2019 commences, I Myself will be releasing a Spirit of acceleration to my people."
As the Holy Spirit spoke this word to me, one of the concepts that really ministered to me was the word "acceleration". Acceleration is defined as, "to cause faster development, progress or advancement, to increase the speed or velocity." I believe that we are in a season of rapid acceleration in the Body of Christ. The Holy Spirit wants to accelerate His purposes in our lives as never before. I have learned that if we are going to fully receive what the Holy Spirit desires in one season, we must enter into that season with our hearts properly positioned. The following are questions I often explore in my desire to receive what God is releasing in a certain season.
