Influencer

Influencer is the new word emerging.  An influencer is someone who is able to mold our perspective such as fashion, politics and social media.

I recently spoke at a conference about the Business Mountain, which is part of the 7 Mountains of Societal Influence. (Education, Religion, Government, Business, Media, Arts and Entertainment)

God has opened the door for us to be great influencers in the business world. He has invited us to partner with Him in bringing His Spirit of Excellence and Revelation to our workplace.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord. (Colossians 3:23 NIV)

When we carry His Excellence in what we do, favor, promotions and increases come with it. I want to share two testimonies to encourage you in your area of influence.

Can you imagine boldly asking for an extra $10,000 from your place of work?

Excellence is the currency employers are seeking. And when they find someone who can deliver — like you —- they will bless your excellence!

God has given you everything you need to pour out His excellence. His word says we are to set our heart toward excellence.

Change Your Words – Change Your Life

When I was growing up we use to say to someone who was calling us names, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me.”

What a lie!

Words are the most powerful weapon we possess. There is life and death in the power of the tongue! (See Proverbs 18:21) The words we speak become our mindset.

Our mindset forms what we believe and what we believe creates the framework we build our life around — whether positive or negative, true or false. Think about the false statement I opened with and the mindset it produces.  It says when people say mean and hurtful things to us, it is harmless. When in reality, hurtful words can cause emotional damage to our souls. And as we know our physical health is dependent on the health of our soul.

How do we change our mindset?

Two Types of Transition

Are you in a transition in your personal life, career, or relationship?

Well, if you answered YES, which type of transition are you in?

There are two types of transition.
One moves you from place to place.
The other moves you from one place to the next, but brings transformation with the transition.

The real questions for you today is —

Am I just moving from place to place?
Am I following God and being transformed as I move?

If you feel like you are stuck and not going from one transition to the next with transformation, you can choose to include transformation.

Envisioning Your Future

I remember when I was kid, I dreamed of being a superhero! I would lay in the driveway in front of my house and daydream about what kind of superhero I would be. I would see myself flying in the air in my cute superhero outfit, rescuing and protecting others.

In many instances, the way we think things are going to look evolves as we grow up. Of course, what I envisioned for the future has changed dramatically from what I thought it would look like as a child. However, the passion to help others has not changed, it just looks different.

Envisioning your future…why is it important?

How do you begin?

“Have you ever thought about partnering with God for your dreams? What a thrill it would be to join forces with God to make your dreams come true? God is a dream giver and He is a dream fulfiller. Our dreams come alive as we spend time with the Lord. He unfolds things we think are impossible and they suddenly become possible!”

Let’s Get Messy!

Maybe you think about a mess as a Tough Mudder Obstacle Course, a pie eating contest, finger painting, or getting caught in the rain?

Today, I am talking about a different kind of mess — I am using the word mess to describe when the things of God are out of our understanding or our control and appear to be messy.

Let’s take a look at Scripture from Proverbs 14:4 in the Passion Translation:

“The only clean stable is an empty stable. So if you want the work of an ox and to enjoy an abundant harvest, you’ll have a mess or two to clean up!”
Proverbs 14:4 TPT

What this is really saying is as we grow in relationship with God our experiences with Him can appear to be messy. The reason for this appearing to be messy is because we are seeing in part and not from the fullness of God’s perspective.

It may sound strange, but there is a messiness in being open to the Holy Spirit. This appearance of messiness occurs because we only have glimpses of what God is wanting to do through us and for us so it appears to be a mess. But to God, it is beautifully and perfectly orchestrated.

100%

I have been pondering on what God’s Kingdom looks like here on earth, specifically when 100% of the people are healed. It all began when I was preparing for our Revival Experiment; this time it was to be a Miracle Service.

As I was reading the Word, I was thinking about the people who were in need of healing, including myself. In my mind, I would focus on one person and then picture what it would be like if they were healed 100%.

With each person, I could see their mind, their body, their organs, their blood — every area being healed.

I shared what I was going after that night — 100%! We worship, we prayed and released healing — but not 100% of our people were healed.

The atmosphere certainly changed that night, and as we responded to the Holy Spirit’s invitation there was unity in our curiosity.

We weren’t trying to figure it out. We were just wanting to receive all that Jesus had for us. Though it wasn’t what we had planned for the night, it is what He had planned.

Though I do not have a full understanding of what took place that night, there are a couple of takeaways I want to share with you.

1) Pursuing 100%
2) Changing the Atmosphere
3) Unity in Our Curiosity

John 15:16 All things that the Father has are Mine. Because of this I said that He [the Spirit] will take from what is Mine and will reveal it to you. (AMP)

God is inviting you to join in the pursuit. He is here now to reveal all things to us — 100%!

Life Shifts

Do you feel like things in your life are shifting? I know I do, but I cannot really identify where the shift is taking me — I just know there is a shift.

At our Revival Experiment I released a prophetic word about going upward.  And as they took a step, the ground underneath their foot dissolved. This means there is no way to go backward, the only direction is up.

Life is shifting us to go forward and not take steps backward. This is a planned season by the Lord to keep us on His path as well as to position us into our next assignment.

What are some of the key indicators that you are in a Life Shift?

Sense Change
Out of Sync
Familiar Fades to the Background
Perspective Change

Ride the Wave

God is doing amazing things in this season. I want to share with you what I am seeing and how you can Ride the Wave of God’s movement.

First, let me explain what Riding the Wave means. Riding the Wave means a group of people are sharing an advantage, success, breakthrough, etc., at the same time.

The group of people who are sharing the benefit in this season are God’s people. Those who have said, ‘yes’ to the voice of Jesus calling them into relationship with Him.

Once you hear and are made aware of the move of God, you are able to identify the opportunities and join in or Ride the Wave. Let me share with you some testimonies of what God is doing.

1) Positioning for Influence
2) Supernatural Supply
3) Imparting and Releasing

When you are riding a wave on a surfboard strength is needed.  As the wave height, speed and depth changes, you need to be ready to shift your position in order to stay on the board and ride the wave until the end.

Read the Blog or Listen to the Podcast to find out how we ride the wave!

Revelation of God

Today I am digging deep in a subject that you will want to be a part of your everyday life. You will want to live from it; making it the core of every thought, every decision, and every relationship, so you can be victorious in every aspect of your lives. 

What is it? 

Revelation from God

Recently, our church began a 10 Day Fast with one goal in mind — Revelation. The fast was divided into 3 focuses, which I will share at the end. But first, let’s talk about what revelation is and why do we need it?

Building Community

Recently we moved from the suburbs to the city.  We sold our home of 19 years and moved closer to two of our children. I have found it to be a bigger contrast in lifestyle than I had expected. 

Here are a few new things I am getting use to:

  • Everyone walks
  • If driving is needed – Uber is called
  • Parking App is required to cover any street parking when you do drive
  • One-way streets, which I have gone down the wrong way 
  • Pedestrians suddenly stepping out into on-coming traffic
  • Pets have their own place in restaurants
  • Festivities take place throughout the city every weekend
  • Outdoors is where everyone gathers 

The city life here is geared toward community, where kindness flows freely. I am not sure how to put words to what I have encountered, but let me give it a shot.
