DAY 21 // Cover The Earth

ACTS 2:17 [NIV]

“In the last days,” God says, I will pour out my Spirit on every kind of people: your sons will prophesy, also your daughters, your young men will see visions, your old men dream dreams. When the time comes, I’ll pour out my Spirit on those who serve me, men and women both, and they’ll prophesy. I’ll set wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below, Blood and fire and billowing smoke, the sun turning black and the moon blood-red.”

Maybe it was the eclipse, but lately I’ve been infatuated with God’s creativity and completely captivated in wonder. Have you spent any time with kids recently? They don’t need to know the science behind why the sky turned black for two minutes; they just stare with their gaping grins at what the sky can do. 

And if there’s anything I want to be, it’s childlike! As it says, He’s “setting wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below,” and I don’t want to miss those! I want God to trust me with the wonder, I want to see more visions and dream more dreams.  I want to be a little kid who stares at what God can do with a gaping grin that says, “why not?”

Let’s be intentional over the next few days and press into the “why not’s,” let’s look for the wonder, be ready to dream for our family and our city and our world, to prophecy into our friendships and families. Let’s watch what God can do with gaping grins and wide eyes and be ready to cover the earth with all we gain.

Day 20 // He Will Rebuild It 

Comment

Day 20 // He Will Rebuild It 

Isaiah 61:4 [NIV]

"They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations." 

Ancient ruins are remnants of greatness. These structures crumble with age and decay, but there is no question that they embody greatness. We behold these ruins in awe. We don't fixate on what's dying or falling apart; instead, we imagine what they would have looked like in their wholeness. We imagine the splendor and the majesty of these structures in their prime. 

We all have figurative 'ruins.' They might be dreams that we felt crumbled and died. They might be generational sins in our family lines that have caused division. They might be wounds from our past that hold us in a pattern of bondage.

 I want to encourage you today that God also sees these things. But, in the same way we can gaze upon ruins and see splendor, God looks at your ruins as fertile fields to plant Hope. God will never leave you or forsake you. And these verses from Isaiah remind us that our God is a God who rebuilds. He won't leave you in ruins. He longs to rebuild and restore what was once magnificent. I encourage you to revisit any 'ancient ruins' in your heart. Find those places you've written off as desolate and demolished. Submit these places to God and open your ears to hear what he longs to restore. Open your eyes to see these places rebuilt and behold the majesty and splendor that God intends for you. He works all things together for good. Believe that He can, and that He will, rebuild 'the places long devastated.'

DAY 19 // He Is Doing Something New

Isaiah 43:19 [NLT]

"For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland

Can you sense things shifting? Over your life, our church our city and beyond. We get to be on the frontlines of this if we choose to. Conference is just day’s away and we have just launched into a new season with a powerful new sound that is reaching the nations with a new way of doing things. In my eyes it is so clear to see that God is doing a new thing but the temptation is to get stuck in the old patterns and way’s that we think things should happen.

God is birthing new dreams & desires in His children everyday that all accomplish His Kingdom come.

Change is exciting for some and terrifying for others but it is imperative when following Jesus.

To be able to step into the new we have to be willing to leave the old behind. It can be comfortable to stay in the place of the old but that does not take faith to live there. That is where we become complacent and stagnant. It’s time to take authority over our thoughts and stop dwelling on the past…the good and bad. You do not live there anymore it is not who you are anymore. You are a new creation is Christ, the old is gone the new has come. We cannot move forward if we are always looking back.

Ask God what His heart is for you to reach the “new “ in your life. What is He saying to you, what might He be asking of you and how is He moving. Obedience is always the key and sometimes uncomfortable. He is sharpening our hearts and will confirm it in His word and through trusted people in your life.

Without taking steps of faith forward nothing moves and we do not get to embrace the new. Speak life over your circumstances, dream big, love God and people like it’s your last day on earth, prophesy into your future and be amazed at all God does. He is our greatest reward and things are being accelerated for He is about to do something NEW…Do you not see it.?

DAY 18 // Seek His Wisdom

Comment

DAY 18 // Seek His Wisdom

Proverbs 2:1-8 (NIV) 

“My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding - indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.”

The availability of heavenly wisdom should not remove the necessity of our diligence to seek it. So often we rely on what we see, hear and feel in the natural and we negate the fact that we need to actually ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom. The particle "if" is conditional, and serves to remind us of the conditions upon which the promise depends.

6:8 - “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds success in store for the upright, He is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for He guards the course of the just and protects the way of His faithful ones."

Seeking God’s wisdom helps anchor our lives as it reminds us to move away from self-sufficiency and narcissistic ambition. It allows us to seek divine perspective, insight and inspiration. To continually cry out to God for guidance and provision, we not only align our hearts and posture to His will for our lives, we also come under His guard and protection.

As we step into conference this coming week, let’s prepare to lean in to His presence, but also let’s be diligent in praying for instruction and seeking His wisdom and guidance.

DAY 17 // Walking By Faith

Comment

DAY 17 // Walking By Faith

Colossians 2:6 [NIV]

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him!” 

How did you receive Jesus? By faith, right? So AS you have received Him, walk IN Him! BY FAITH. We know we were saved by faith, but be honest with yourself; there is a subtle thought that we are “incomplete” and we strive to “be good” for Him. This is exactly the lie Satan wants us to live by - faith plus a little bit of works - trying to gain our righteousness. 

Colossian 2:9-10: says “For in Jesus dwells ALL of the FULLNESS of the Godhead in the body. And IN Christ, YOU have been brought to FULLNESS!”  When Jesus, by the power of Holy Spirit, came to dwell in you, ALL of the fullness of God came in. You are COMPLETE IN HIM! You don’t need to “do more” to “get more” of God. As you began - BY FAITH- draw near in confidence, abiding and yielding to all He is IN you. Let the simplicity of The Anointed One and His anointing invade and bring freedom, strengthening your faith and increasing your thankfulness. Holy Spirit is absolutely crazy about you and Jesus in you, and He loves bringing you from glory to glory!!

DAY 16 // Boundary Lines

Comment

DAY 16 // Boundary Lines

Psalm 16:5-6 (ESV): "The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; You hold my lot.  The [boundary] lines have fallen for me in pleasant places, indeed I have a beautiful inheritance”

16:11 “You make known to me the path of life; in Your presence there is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore”.

So often we think of boundaries in a negative context, interpreting them as rules and regulations; limitations that only separate us from what we think would be better for us.  However, in this Psalm, David is telling us the exact opposite about the boundaries that God establishes for our lives, saying that they’ve hedged him into “pleasant places”.  The powerful thing about this phrase “pleasant places” is that it is a single Hebrew word that means ‘pleasures’, the very same word used later in verse 11 where David declares to God “…at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”  So another way to interpret verse 6 would be “the boundary lines around my life hedge me into Your presence, where there is fullness of JOY.”  The boundaries God builds around our lives keep us where HE is.  He doesn’t stifle us or keep us from His best, He keeps us close to Him.  HE is the goal, HE is our “beautiful inheritance”.   How amazing is that about God, that He can take boundary lines, something that in the natural seems like nothing but a limitation, and use it for something that brings a life without limit; “fullness of joy”, true freedom, “pleasures forevermore”.  Let’s choose what David chose, to declare God as our greatest reward, praise Him and thank Him for keeping us close to His presence, and experience fullness of joy in the lot that He has given us.

DAY 15 // Daily Bread

Comment

DAY 15 // Daily Bread

Matthew 6:11 [NIV]

“Give us today, our daily bread

Why is it when Jesus teaches us how to pray, he mentions the word “day” then “daily” sequentially. Why not just say, “…give us this day our bread?” The word “day” refers to our typical length of time of twenty four hours. Yet when it comes to the word “daily,” no-one really knows the exact meaning of this rare word. Preferentially it means “bread that is fit or necessary to live for the day.” Yet what is that ? Put alongside other words of Jesus, we see that He calls himself the living bread (John 6:35). We also know that the Israelites were provided a bread-like substance in the wilderness­­-manna. Both of these “breads” are one and the same thing, and come from above-it is super above bread-sent from heaven! 

So, while you’re eating your breakfast bagel, think about this today-your bread alone is not enough to live off. It needs to be “daily” bread-the very essence of Jesus who comes from above. It needs to be a fresh word from God’s mouth, baked just for today. Bread is to be experienced. There’s something of Jesus that is supernatural for you to taste and see from heaven today. Ask for it. Believe for something “above” your normal routine. He has spoken and he is speaking. Just as bread takes time to rise, take time now with the Holy Spirit !

DAY 14 // The Father's Heart

Comment

DAY 14 // The Father's Heart

Luke 15: 17-24 [NIV]

When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death!  I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’  So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.

 The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

 But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.  Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate.  For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.

As I have recently become a new Dad I am remind of the Father’s heart for us all. Often we find ourselves drifting away from the Lord as the circumstances of life seem to hold us captive.  However, Father God is always waiting patiently for us to return, running toward us when we do. My prayer over my sons has been that they will always know that no matter what this life brings or where they go that I will always be here for them, waiting and ready to run and out and meet them where they are. I find myself gaining deeper understanding of Father’s heart and mind for us. He is always pursing us. He is always longing for relationship us. When we wander He longs for us to return and will always run to meet us open arms. So as we prepare for conference lets ask the Father if there are areas in our lives that we need to run back to Him with and let Him wrap His arms around us and welcome us home.

DAY 13 // Encourage Others

Hebrews 10:23-25 [Passion]

So now we must cling tightly to the hope that lives within us, knowing that God always keeps his promises! Discover creative ways to encourage others and to motivate them toward acts of compassion, doing beautiful works as expressions of love. This is not the time to pull away and neglect meeting together, as some have formed the habit of doing, because we need each other! In fact, we should come together even more frequently, eager to encourage and urge each other onwards as we anticipate that day dawning.” 

He who is faithful, will do it! God hasn’t broken a promise yet, and He never will. He is the promise keeper we can trust in and cling to in every season. What I love most about this scripture is that as we understand the goodness and faithfulness of God, it should stir us not only inwardly, but outwardly as well. This love and renewed hope we’ve experienced should cause us to better love and encourage those around us. Today (and really for the rest of life!), let’s come up with CREATIVE ways to encourage one another. Take time out of your day to think of others, pray for others, and thoughtfully pour into others. We are called to cover the earth, and that can only happen when we stop fixing our eyes on ourselves and start searching for ways to love others in extravagant ways!

DAY 12 // The Master Chess Player

Jeremiah 29:11 [NIV]

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

God is the ‘Master Chess Player’, who knows all the right moves to get you exactly where you need to be. He sees our life from beginning to end and has the perfect plan mapped out for us… even when it feels like we’ve made all the wrong moves!

It can often seem that when we exclude Him from our decision-making in daily life, sometimes things don’t go as well as we planned or hoped for. However, when we submit to His leading, we can have the greatest confidence that He working to a plan that will cause us to prosper and flourish in all areas of our life, giving us hope and a future in Him!

DAY 11 // Trusting God

Isaiah 55: 8-9 [NIV]
 
“…My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways… As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
 
This passage of scripture clearly says that God does not think like men do. He is certainly not subject to the same limitations, weaknesses or challenges that we face in our earthly lives. As followers of Christ, how much peace then can we walk in daily, having that wonderful security of knowing that our beautiful, kind, loving Father in heaven has only good plans for us- and will never leave, forsake, or forget about us! 
 
Unlike the best efforts of men, there is no situation or circumstance we may face that is too difficult for our loving Father to gently guide us through. He can be trusted because He clearly sees the way ahead… and is perfect in all His ways!

DAY 10 // Promise Maker - Promise Keeper

Comment

DAY 10 // Promise Maker - Promise Keeper

John 13:7 [NLT] 

“ You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.”

“Don’t try and figure it out”….I have heard this in my Spirit so much lately.

Have you ever gone through a season that seems contrary to what the Lord has spoken? Maybe in the natural eye things look or seem backwards to you. Maybe you don’t quite understand the season you are in or how it is all going to work out. I want to encourage you - "Don’t try and figure it out.” These are the very moments God is still a promise keeper. After all He is the one that created and made every promise. We see in part, but God see’s the whole. Let your heart rest in His faithfulness today. I love the verse in proverbs that tells us to “Lean not on our own understanding but acknowledge Him in all our ways” Proverbs 3:5

 Once we have this solidified in our hearts we get to go on the most exhilarating ride navigating the seasons with the Holy Spirit. Asking Him to direct and lead our every step. He is constantly making a way, constantly bringing us from glory to glory and sometimes in the most unexpected of way’s.

I once heard the Lord say to me “ You either trust me with everything or you don’t trust me at all.”  I thought I heard Him wrong….but then I realized in His kindness He was inviting me to see that I had really strong “trust” muscles in some areas of my life but there were some weaknesses in other areas that needed to be tended to.

 Instead of trying to figure things out, what if we were a people who were so surrendered to the heart of God that all that mattered was being close to Him? Allowing His glory  & presence to be seen throughout us in every season. That everywhere we went the love of God and trust we have in Him would spill out onto our families, communities, city and beyond and everyone would want to know this God we serve. Let’s press in to simply know Jesus more and not try and understand things that “someday we will.”

DAY 9 // Find yourself in him

2 Timothy 1:7 [ESV]

"For God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power and love and self-control.”

We have reason to be alive! Each one of us has a calling on our life that was put in place specifically by God himself. You have a place in His Kingdom that no one else can fill!

Being empowered by Holy Spirit, take on each day with confidence and love, knowing that you've been called on by the Lord. Throw off comparison because it robs those around you of the person that you are. We've been 'fearfully and wonderfully made' and 'knit together' for a life that is taylor made.

Find yourself in Him and today and live the life that He set out for you, knowing that you can walk in a Spirit of power, love, and self control because He's a good Father. He gave you that Spirit, freely step into it!

DAY 8 // Prepare your heart for Him

Isaiah 66: 1-3 [MSG]

“Heaven’s my throne, earth is my footstool.  What sort of house could you build for me?  What holiday spot reserve for me?  I made all this! I own all this!”
God’s Decree.  “But there is something I’m looking for:  a person simple and plain,  reverently responsive to what I say."

Heaven is my throne! God is reminding us of who He is. He is so awesome in power! How can we ever contain Him? How could we ever deserve Him?!

Yet He asks us… what place have we prepared for Him. He doesn’t want man-made structures. He is not impressed by that. In fact, there’s nothing that we can make for Him that could even begin to contain the Greatness of His Presence. He doesn’t want a physical temple. He’s too amazing for that! 

But he loves to reside in the heart that is humble. The heart that knows of his need of Him. One who simply trusts in Him like a child. One who fears Him and loves Him with all of his heart. 

…and a heart that says “yes dad, anything you want, I’ll do it for You”!

I want God to find His home in me. It’s pretty easy to be His best friend. It has nothing to do with what we can DO for Him. It’s about your heart… in fact, it’s always been about your heart.

DAY 7 // Choose To Believe

Mark 11:23 [AMP]

"I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!’ and does not doubt in his heart [in God’s unlimited power], but believes that what he says is going to take place, it will be done for him [in accordance with God’s will]."

Have you ever read the scripture above and glossed over it?  I have. The last time I checked I haven’t seen a mountain be thrown into the sea.

But...what if?

What if God is calling us to believe for things that we have never seen before?  What if this generation is being called to bring the kingdom in ways the world has yet to see?  What would happen if we took our limits off of God and gave a resounding "No!" to fear and unbelief?  What if we have the choice to believe that we will see the glory of God manifest in a way that will change history forever?  What if we actually started to recognize that the story isn’t over? 

What if the story involves you?

It's time we recognize that when Jesus promised we would do even greater works than he had done (JOHN 14:12), he actually meant it.

I want to challenge you to partner with Holy Spirit and break off the limitations you’ve put on your faith.  Ask Holy Spirit to show you where you’ve allowed fear or unbelief to come in. Repent of it and make the choice to believe for things that seem completely impossible.  Dig through the Bible and find scriptures that strengthen your faith.  Declare them every single day over your life, your families lives, your city and the world.  Choose to believe him, and watch what he will do.

DAY 6 // Love Others

‭Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭13‬ [MSG]

"It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. Just make sure that you don’t use this freedom as an excuse to do whatever you want to do and destroy your freedom. Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; that’s how freedom grows. For everything we know about God’s Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself. That’s an act of true freedom. If you bite and ravage each other, watch out—in no time at all you will be annihilating each other, and where will your precious freedom be then? "


It is for freedom we were set free! God sent His Son to die on the cross for us in love so that we can live fully in that same love. Love and freedom go hand in hand, they can't be torn apart. As we step into the freedom God has for us, we must step up to the love He expects from us. Our freedom gives us the ability to love other people into their freedom.


As we move ever closer to conference, let's cover the earth in love so that the world can have the freedom Christ died for. It's by our love that they will know who He is.

DAY 5 // The Lord's Goodness

Psalm 27:13 [NLT]


"Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living."

Some scholars believe David penned this Psalm in his older age after he was nearly killed facing yet another giant (2 Samuel 21:17). When we think of David we often think of the younger version confidently taking down Goliath and praising God for it. But, David faced a second giant and this time needed the help of his younger mighty men to rescue him.

Though David had found himself in a season of weakness, exhaustion and possible embarrassment he still by faith believed God had good things ahead for him. Until we take our last breath here on earth God has good things for us too! Yes, we might face trials but ultimately, like David, we must trust that we will see the Lord’s goodness while we’re here in the land of the living.

Be encouraged!

DAY 4 // Trust in Him

DAY 4 // Trust in Him

Hebrews 11:1 [MSG].

“The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.”

Are we a people of deep faith? Do we have a faith that sets us above the crowd? When you google the definition of faith, the first thing that comes up is this‘a complete trust or confidence in someone or something.’ 

What I love about Hebrews 11 is that as you continue to read, Paul gives example after example of heroes of the old testament who had such a deeply rooted faith in God that they were willing to do anything He asked. Noah built an ark while being criticized by his peers (vs 7), Moses gave up being the heir to the kingdom of Egypt, to be mistreated alongside the slaves of the time (vs 24-28) and in faith Abraham was willing to sacrifice his only son Isaac, a promise that had been fulfilled by God himself. Everyone mentioned was willing to leave a place of comfort and step out into the unknown because they knew that trusting the voice of God was so much greater then the comforts of life. And yet while all of the saints mentioned were commended for their faith, none of them received their promise in full (39), referring to salvation in Christ. How much more then should we, people who know and understand the promise of salvation through Christ, be a people willing to step out in faith, with complete trust and confidence in who God is and what He is calling us to. 

My prayer for us is that as we set apart time in a few weeks at conference, our level of faith will increase as God speaks and calls us out to ‘Cover the Earth’. That like the saints that have gone before us, we will be a people willing to do anything He asks, no matter the cost, to further His kingdom.

PSALM 95:6-7 [Passion Translation]

“Come and kneel before this Creator-God; Come and bow before the mighty God, our majestic Maker!  For we are the lovers He cares for and He is the God we worship! So drop everything else and listen to His voice!”

What are you carrying? All of us carry things… good and bad things, heavy and light things.  Throughout life we often take on the weight of so much we were never meant to carry in the first place.

As we get closer to conference I would love to encourage you to take some time and think of what you tend to always carry, and how often you worship while still holding on. 

I love this Psalm because it paints such a beautiful picture of what stepping into the presence of God should look like. It’s not always easy to let go of what we’ve been holding, but it is always worth it.

When we come into His presence and drop everything just to worship, and hear His voice, all we have left are open hands…. open hands ready to receive whatever He has for us. So let go of the weight you've been carrying, and make way for the weight of heaven.

DAY 2 // Put on the full armor

Ephesians 6:12-13 [NIV]

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground...

Victory in a battle is determined not only by the ground you take, but also by the ground you keep. It does an army no good to take new territory while losing all the territory behind them. They must be strong on all sides; as mighty in the rear as they are on the front lines. This keeps the enemy from infiltrating the camp. It keeps the territory safe and secures the victory. 

I love that this scripture emphasizes putting on the FULL armor of God. We can't simply rely on a piece or two to keep ourselves safe from the arrows of the enemy. Would a warrior enter into battle with only a helmet or a shield and leave the rest of his armor behind? 

The enemy is always searching for our weak spots and he finds them when we forget to armor up. I challenge you to search your heart today and seek out the places that aren't fully surrendered to the Word of God. Find those spots that are exposed for the enemy to plant lies. Pray into them; seek out what God says; armor up and take back any territory the enemy has stolen. Secure your victory!
