TAKING ACTION

FEBRUARY 21

TAKING ACTION



Yesterday we learned the first step to rekindling the vision of your destiny is to reject reasons for remaining where you are.


-You may have committed adultery. It is not an unpardonable sin. You can be forgiven and restored, as was King David.

-You may have denied Christ as Peter did. Yet Peter became a key leader in the first church.

-You may be serving a life sentence in prison and wonder how you can ever have a purpose in life. Your circumstances of incarceration may not change, but you can change. You can find a new destiny, a new reason for living.


No matter where you are or what your circumstances, begin right now to speak the Word of God over your lost vision, your shattered dream. Declare this truth: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13).


Are you ready for the next step to rekindle your dream? The second step is: Rise up and take action. You must act upon the Word of God or otherwise you will remain right where you are in seclusion in your spiritual desert. Moses rose up and returned to Egypt to fulfill his destiny as their deliverer.


-God told Noah, “Rise up and build an ark."

-After Moses died, God told Joshua to rise up and take his position as leader of Israel. -God told Nehemiah, “Arise and build!”

-After King Saul’s failure, God told Samuel to stop grieving and anoint a new king.

-Jesus said “Arise” to a lame man by the side of the road, and he was able to walk again.


If you are still sorrowing over your lost ministry and your shattered dream, then it is time to stop. You will never have a future as long as you are living in the past. Get up and begin to act in faith. You must make a change, or a year from now you will be right where you are today. God’s Word to you is:


Arise from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you, rise to a new life! Shine, be radiant with the glory of the Lord; for your light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you! (Isaiah 60:1, TAB)


You can remain where you are--sorrowing over the past, mourning your shattered dream--or you can rise up from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you. It is time to take action and rekindle your dream.



PRAYER:

My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
