God’s Call To All

There is a vision coming into reality as I submerse myself into the presence of God among fellow laid-down lovers that strikes me to the core of my being.  The call of God is so strong on His children, the message of His heart is greater than we can dream up ourselves.  When you finally realize that the impossible is made possible only with God, you begin to see with His eyes and you no longer require a process of how to carry out the dream of His heart.  Risk no longer requires guarantees, radicalness sets its seal upon you, and faith gains raw determination to agree with His plans, His heart and says that no matter what, there is no turning back.

Now, you may be wondering what this call is, what the core of God’s heart is.  The answer is as simple as this, God wants to be reconciled to His children.  He wants not just a person, not just a city, not even just a country.  But God wants every nation on earth, every person on earth.  The how is just as simple.  He wants you to be a part of bringing His Kingdom to earth.  You have a part in this movement.  You have a voice.  You have a call.  You are called to be a soul winner!  

What if every child of God stepped out of the lies of the enemy of unbelief, fear, insignificance, pride, false humility, unreal expectations, self-analysis, doubt, worry, the unknown and any other inhibitor that prevents us from sharing the Gospel unashamedly, with boldness.  What if every child of God turned from these things and agreed with God in humility that the call that has been placed over us is bigger than we can fathom, is greater than it seems, is impossible…except with God.  Amy Sollars, a mighty laid-down lover of Jesus says it like this, “The enemy’s greatest fear is that we will realize who God has made us to be and we will walk in it.”  If every child of God recognized that they are someone valuable in bringing Heaven to earth, remained confident in God’s love, and stepped out in radical faith and courage of seeing nations come to God in a day, then it really can and will happen!

One huge thing that I am learning here at the School of Circuit Riders Norway is this: God desires your heart of courageous faith to boldly go where many bold leaders have gone before you.  Jesus was a risk-taker.  His disciples were risk-takers.  Those that came after them were risk-takers.  But they were united with one heart and one purpose and that purpose is this…to count the cost and lay it all down for the sake of the world, determination to say that one soul isn’t enough.  To be all in just as these forerunners were.

I leave you with this: Have you asked God lately to show you who He made you to be?  Have you had dreams and visions of things that are impossible in your own power?  If not, I encourage you to ask God today to reveal the impossible to you and I assure you, He will make it possible.  You have a specific role in the Kingdom.  Be bold.  Be courageous.  Be who He made you to be and go for the gold…souls!  You are called to be a nationshaking generation!  If not now, when? If not us, who?  Esther 4:14 says, “For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the Kingdom for such a time as this?”

Be blessed,

Gods Not Dead!!! He is ROARING like a LION!!!

We have been in New York City for about a week now and several things are becoming apparent.  First, it is much harder to blog than before, maybe because I am the one responsible to God for making sure we are being diligent in the ministry He has for us.  Second, I am responsible for my wife now when before it was just me.  However, I will continue to update you as often as I can about the happenings here.

First, I want to thank everyone who has been a part of praying for us and partnering with us in this way.  NYC is a good training ground for us before we head out into other countries, and it is amazing to see the level of demonic activity that is surrounding us.  Whether it is because we are on the scene or it is always like this, I do not know, but it is very evident that at least two of these instances were intended to cause us to fear.  We are not fearing, just pressing forward.

Also, things are not looking as I originally thought here, but we are still doing ministry.  Not the crazy awesomeness that I thought, but it is happening.  Please continue to pray that God would open the doors and that we would come to know more about our specific purpose here beyond ministering life and encouragement to my friend Zach.

I wanted to share with you two things that God spoke to me about NYC.  As the plane was landing last week, I began to pray for NYC and ask the Lord to reveal what was going on here.  He spoke to me that He was birthing Fire in NYC.  THis became very evident this week in many ways.  Bethel, JHOP, Hillsong, NAMB and many more amazing ministries have set their sights on bringing the gospel here.  Each of these are already setup and ministering in various ways.

The second thing was one morning, I woke up singing, “My God’s not Dead, He is surely alive. He’s living on the inside roaring like a lion!”  Many people may look at cities like NY and think that it is a godless depraved city.  However, God is not dead here!!!  He is roaring like a lion and waking up His people.  He is calling His children to rise up and take back this Gateway city.  When His people control the gateway cities to the nations, they are the ones letting in the glory of the Lord and keeping out the attack of the enemy.

I want to encourage you in your life that there may be situations, people, places where you feel that are godless and so far removed from God and are without Him.  He is not dead in that person, situation, or circumstance!!!  He is inside and roaring like a lion His truth and love.  Perhaps you are the one He wants to use to bring His truth and love to a situation!  Ask Holy Spirit if there is some way that He can use you to roar our His truth to the people, situations, and circumstances around you.  I bless you with this “My God is Not dead!  He is surely alive in You! He is living on the inside of You!  He is roaring like a Lion in and through You!!!  Let it out and roar the way You were designed to roar as a son or daughter of the Lion of Judah!!!

Let’s Get to the <3 of the Matter

As the time draws nearer for us to go out into all the world, God continues to speak His truth to our hearts and souls. God is continuing to speak to us all of the time and we must be careful to hear and obey what He is saying. Today, as I was reading in Romans 2, God was speaking to me about my actions.

Your actions always reveal your heart, in one way or the other! Each time you act, these things are telling you something. The things that you say or do will either convince others of the Truth or convict you of a wrong heart. The actions of two people may be the very same act, but the difference is always the heart behind it, or the intention in the doing the action. Time will always prove the intention behind it. You might be able to lie to yourself, but God is not fooled by a good act motivated by a wrong heart! Man looks on the outward appearance, but God looks on the heart. He rewards you for the heart behind the act and not just the act itself.

If you look at things this way, any time you do something good with a wrong motive, no matter how good the act may be, you are not doing it for God. Whatever you are doing it is really for yourself (perhaps it is to make yourself look or feel better or you are being deceived) or it is for others to see. You are doing these things for others to recognize you and this is a selfish motive. James 4:1-3 confirms this in that God answers us and gives us what we ask for except when our hearts are amiss or we ask out of our own selfishness.

I do not want you to ever be fooled by the enemy! God is not fooled by our actions, but always looks at the heart. When He sees your acts, is He seeing your selfishness or is He seeing a pure heart with a desire to please Him? Ask Holy Spirit to reveal Truth to you about every action that you may do it for the glory of God!

If this is your prayer for your life as it is mine, join me in praying something like this:
“God help me to never do anything out of my own selfish desires, motives, or ambitions. I never want to be deceived into doing anything for the wrong reasons. Help me to live in Truth and selflessness as long as I am alive!!! Make me more like You than ever before! Give me Your heart of love, compassion, and service that I may serve in the same way you did! Help me to become more like you every day in every way!!!
