A New Destination is Ahead

Father wants to put fresh, new spiritual destinations in your heart, along with a compelling purpose for pursuing them. This is a time to be listening!

Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.’ (Isaiah 43:19)

The Hebrew word ‘wilderness’ means, ‘a vast open field where cattle are driven’, ‘uninhabited land’, or ‘large tracts of open land and pasture’.

The picture is of someone herding cattle like a drover and discovering uninhabited, vast plains of land that is virgin territory.

The thought is not that of dryness. Quite the opposite! ‘A road in the wilderness’ speaks of a place where there is an abundance of food for cattle—and settlers can come and prosper in a new land. The ‘wilderness’ speaks of new territory. Expansive new territory!

So if you feel as though you are facing a wilderness, be encouraged. The promise of God is that He will give you a ‘road’ that will cause that wilderness to become accessible and a place of great fruitfulness.

Love and God bless,

It’s Time to Prepare for What Lies Ahead

In life and ministry, there are seasons for battle and there are seasons to get prepared for that battle.

In Psalm 24, we meet ‘The King of glory…the Lord mighty in battle.’ But before that, comes Psalm 23: ‘He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul.’ (Ps 23:2-3)

Father’s invitation to ‘walk beside still waters’ is not an offer to a lifestyle of complacency, ease and passivity—it is an invitation to get prepared adequately for what lies ahead. Clark Kent doesn’t go into the telephone booth to set up house—he goes in to come out as Superman!

Still waters are for affection and intimacy, but they are also to prepare you for conquest. Before the commission, must come the revelation of who you are.

My friend, to be ‘mighty in battle’ you must live out of freshness, wholeness, and a non-negotiable conviction of who your Father is and who you are.

I urge you to create time for that which is the priority of your calling—your times of intimacy with Father, listening to His voice. Then out of that intimacy, to come forth ready for the conquest of what God has called you to do.

Love and God bless,

David
