Revelations 5:10 tells us, that God has made us to be kings and priests. That speaks of authority, not our own, but His. There are too many of Gods kids who are being deceived by a spirit of pride, and instead of spending their time DOING the work of a minister, they’re competing and lobbying for a title. Some pastors aren’t satisfied with being a pastor, they now want to be called a prophetic pastor or a pastor with an “apostolic anointing”.

Yesterday's season is over. In this past season the Spirit of God was there to lead us, to give us wisdom, and to strengthen us. The word says in the Old Testament that when God led the children of Israel that He led them by a cloud during the day and a fire at night. Their responsibility was to follow his leading. In His presence were all the things they needed ...... health, security, blessing, order, protection. Everything they needed was in the glory of God. In order for them to be sustained and to experience increase and expansion they had to follow the glory.
I’ve been in contact with a lot of people over this past year and most have said the same thing…… 2012 was very trying. As I look back, I’ve found the reason for the squeezing. The year was prophetically the beginning of God’s government being established in our lives. To put it simply, it was a year of "order".
A word of strength and encouragement...the pressure and emotional attack that you may be encountering has an expiration date on it. It can't and won't last, but the God in you will. So don't stop believing, don't stop speaking to your mountain and by all means keep moving forward because the best isn't behind you, it's still in front of you.
One of the biggest enemies to your future is your history (past). And on the other side of that, the greatest enemy to your (past) history is your future. For this reason, you and I need to understand that where we've been and what we've encountered should only be used to propel us into the next chapter God has prepared for us. We are about to enter into a NEW chapter and that means we haven't been here before.
Have you ever felt like quitting? Maybe you feel that way right now! Let me encourage you with the fact that you're not alone. There are many people out there right now that have, are and will at some point experience weariness and distress. The Word of God tells us in Galations 6:9 to "not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not".
The Lord tells us in Jeremiah 29:11 that He has plans for us. He desires to bless us, give us a future and He's already at where we are going. Walking out His plan for our lives is a journey and everything that we may go through or encounter He already knew about. It's in that understanding that we can have peace and confidence in Him and His plans for our lives. So enjoy the journey, because it's in the journey you will find your strength.
We have entered a time to reestablish and regain lost
ground. God is now repositioning us so we can have a greater impact in the area that He has called and anointed us to. There is an acceleration to bring to pass all that God has promised us in the past. In each place or season where we are or have been, we are encouraged by the Spirit of the Lord to hold on and don’t give up.....
God did not create us to sit on the sidelines of life and take what was handed to us....nor allow our circumstances to be the governing factor of who we are or what we can be, or become. Our birthright of winning has already been determined! In Revelations 5:10 (NKJV) we find that, “we’ve been made kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth”. This speaks of ruling and having oversight. Ruling over what or where you might ask?.....
