Years after my first angelic visitation in 1991 (which was shocking to me at the time), I received the following revelation about developing a positive Kingdom mindset — because it has everything to do with discovering and walking in our destiny. And it radically changed my own life too.
I released my Prophetic Word for February: Radical Adjustments & Reassignments Coming because many of you are being realigned and repositioned right now for the “divine assignments” God has for you in marriage, business and ministry partnerships.
But I also want to mention this here because it can help you move towards your destiny much more quickly.
Preparing for your Divine Assignment
Understanding God’s Kingdom requires us to have spiritual eyes and ears. Jesus said over 15 times that we must have “eyes to see and ears to hear.”
In John 5:19 (NLT) Jesus said He did “…only what he sees the Father doing.” Notice the words see and do. Not only do we need to see what God is doing, but we also must be “doers of the word” (James 1:22 NAS) as well.
When we know God’s intention for a situation, it allows us to be in agreement with Him.
But sometimes it may be opposite from what we expect.
Notice that Noah built an ark in a dry season.
Joseph advised Pharaoh to store up grain in a time of prosperity so that he would be a blessing in a time of famine.
Not to mention all the spiritual principles that seem to be backwards from our natural thinking, things like: you must give to receive, the last will be first, if you humble yourself God will lift you up, etc.
Discovering your Destiny in the Mess
The new divine alliances and assignments that are coming will not all look nice, neat and orderly!
They will not violate any principles of the Bible, but God is about to do some radical things to bring about a radical change in His Kingdom on Earth.
This will help us to fulfill our destinies at a level we have not seen before.
Right now many people don’t know what their destiny is. Many don’t know their spiritual gifts or what God has called them to do.
If that’s you, I want to encourage you today with this. (And check out my video for you here.)
First John 4:4 tells us that the Spirit within us is greater than the one in the world around us.
Science has discovered that there is a major difference between light and dark. Light can be measured and it has substance and mass. Darkness however, is simply the absence of light.
Jesus is Light and Paul encourages us to live as children of Light (Ephesians 5:8).b Living our lives with a greater measure of God’s love and light is extremely powerful. We then dispel darkness wherever we go.
As Christians, we need to understand and regularly practice positive spiritual principles, for example:
- Praying for those who curse us.
- Loving and not judging.
- Giving to those in need.
- Helping the oppressed.
- Being humble as opposed to proud and arrogant.
- Forgiving those who offend us.
The list is actually much longer … but you get the picture. Notice that most of these principles are relationally oriented and they direct us on how to relate with other people as opposed to only relating to God.
Your divine assignment will involve partnering with other people. But we need to do it in the spirit of Love.
Many Christians love God, but when no one is looking, they are guilty of mistreating people.
But we can change the spiritual atmosphere around us by loving, blessing and being an encouragement.
Here’s the fun part: If you do these things regularly, the principle of sowing and reaping will eventually kick in.
Your life will be overflowing with good things to the point that you cannot help but change the world around you. What you sow is what you will reap.
If you sow grumbling, doubt, fear, depression, anxiety and complaining, then that is what you will get in return.
If you sow love, hope, encouragement, generosity, humility, forgiveness, etc., then that is what you will experience more of.
Developing a positive Kingdom perspective and lifestyle is what will truly change our lives and the lives of many around us.
It’s also where we will find our divine assignment.
It took me years in the school of hard knocks to learn this and I want to help save you time and pain — so that you can accelerate the process to your destiny and discover your divine assignment!
Because as God is doing something new, now more than ever we need new strategies to bring God’s love to a hurting world. We need some fresh and original ideas in churches, businesses, education, government, media, entertainment and all aspects of life.
This is an exciting time to be a part of what God is doing! That’s why this coming Saturday, February 18, I’ll be talking about this and much more in my upcoming webinar, Discovering Your Divine Assignment: How to Step into Your Unique Calling From God.
God has revealed that now is the time to prepare for the “Divine Alliances” He is bringing — to connect many people in unlikely ways for strategic marriage, business and ministry partnerships.
If you’ve been wondering what’s next for you in this season, I hope you’ll sign up and join us for this webinar.
Get ready for the new things!
