God wants to set you up for this decade. 2020 is the beginning of incredible blessings to come! I believe prayers you’ve prayed for years will come to pass, and I believe God wants to begin now!
If ever there was a time for you to pursue God, it is now! If ever there was a time for you to say yes to God, it’s now!
Years ago, Curtis and I were asked to go help our pastor/friend start a new church planted by the church we were attending at the time. My husband knew we were supposed to go, but I did not want to leave my church, my friends, my comfortable life. A few weeks had gone by since being presented with this opportunity, and the answer in my heart was still no. I had “my” reasons. Lol
I received a call one day from a close friend who told me a family member (which I knew) just passed away. While on vacation with her family as she prepared lunch for them, she suddenly died of a brain aneurysm. I was shocked! It was sudden, and no one was prepared.
New Mission Grounds
I hung up the phone and these are the words I heard: “I’ve been trying to tell you that time is short, there are many souls to be saved, and you are wasting My time. You’re putting stock in material things.” I knew immediately what He was talking about — my friends and the lifestyle I had cultivated. But when God spoke those words, it was settled in my heart. I said in my heart, “Lord, I’ll go where you call me to go.” This word from the Lord changed my outlook of the world around me. It gave me a perspective about people. There is nothing I can take to heaven with me except other people.
It’s interesting, after God spoke to me, my three closest friends at the time all moved out-of-state within 2 months of one another. God had a plan for each of us which included new mission grounds. At the time I did not realize it, but God was moving His people around. Not too long after that, God moved my family to Hobe Sound where we presently reside.
This is God’s heart for people:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 NIV
Promotions are Coming!
Everything in this life and the choices we make eventually lead us to eternity. Yet sometimes we forget. We get caught up in ourselves instead of being Kingdom-minded. Why am I telling you this? Well, I believe God is getting ready to move people around again. People move constantly, I get that! However, this is a strategic movement for the Kingdom of God. I believe God is promoting those who have been faithful in this past season. For many, all of the challenges and obstacles have been a test for promotion. The time has come for new mission fields for those who have passed the tests. For some it may be moving out-of-state, for some — even out of their country. For others, it may be a change of employment, business or ministry.
Wherever you are planted in this next season of life, embrace the call from God to go where He asks you to go, to stay where He calls you to stay. Say yes to the call on your life! It is in the calling that true fulfillment comes!
I still Remember the words God spoke 25 years ago: “I’ve been trying to tell you that time is short, there are many souls to be saved, and you are wasting My time. You’re putting stock in material things.”
What are your material things?
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Matthew 6:33 NKJV
