You've Grown Into Your Shoes


I want to tell you a short story of my shoes being too large.  My husband noticed it, my friends and those around me noticed it. These were actually my same shoes that I had been wearing.  I've worn this same size since I was a teenager.  

People would ask what's going on?  They saw me shuffling along, as I  wore shoes that seemed to be too large.   Little did I know the Lord would use this situation as a message to me later on.

Then on a Sunday morning, December 27th I heard, 

“You’ve grown into your shoes.  You’ve grown into your shoes."   So I followed His voice into this conversation, later on.

I said Lord, in order to have grown into my shoes either my feet have enlarged or my shoes have shrunken.  But we rule out shoes shrinking because the word was YOU’VE GROWN …..into your shoes.  You have grown!  The Church has grown!   Believers,  you have grown!  Ecclesia, you have grown!

Shoes can symbolize - vision/ministry/plans and purposes encompassing one’s life and destiny 

Feet can symbolize - traveling and effort to bring the good news.  Feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace Eph. 6.

I release over you that Our “feet” have grown into the vision, and have grown into all that God has for us.

May I submit this?:  

“One of the important things in preventing falls is the importance of posture and alignment and it all begins with your feet!  The feet provide a base of support for the body and having a good solid base goes a long way in helping us stay aligned”.

Your feet are the base of support!

Wearing shoes too large is like David in Saul's armor.  - Saul's armor was not proven. (1 Sam. 17:32),   We're dressed for  success with the whole armor of God  (Eph. 6), that has been proven.  Our feet are shod, covered, shoed with preparation for spreading the gospel and with kingdom principles - to take it to every nation He sends us to.  We're going into a New Year having grown into our shoes,

Whether you’re in:

Running shoes✔️
Walking shoes✔️
Cross-trainers✔️
Cycling shoes✔️
Dress shoes✔️
Heels/Wedges✔️
Platform pumps✔️
Stilletoes✔️

Go into 2021 knowing that you have grown into your shoes.

You can expect:

Better agility 
Speed
Sure footedness 
Sure Steps that are ordered by the Lord
Comfort of the  Holy Spirit, for the journey

He said, "because I have amplified, magnified and enlarged your base for the vision". 

So, Prophesy like its already done🎯
Pray like its already done🎯
The Finisher has done the work🎯
Cause its already done, we’ve already won.🏆

I prophesy:  "There’s no way that you can lose cause you’ve grown into your shoes. I’ve already done the work, It’s finished, it’s finished.  Didn’t I say its finished? Now run along, You’re shining bright, as you sing your songs all day and night.  I’m Jehovah Nissi, in the midst of you, And you’ve grown into your shoes."

Presidential Race Word of the Lord.

Word of the Lord Received 7/21/20




I said Lord the presidential race and with the climate and all that is going on, I want to ask you, Who will be president?   and I heard:


"You had him you had a window, I gave you a moment,  I gave you time to align yourself with me and the word, you're not to align yourself with the president you're to pray for the president and align yourself with me and the word for protection.   Align yourself with me and the word for your plans and purposes, in moving forward.   You had a window, you have a moment.


Then I heard:   "President Trump has made a decree that can take the body all the way from earth to glory.  You had a window, you had a moment, don't continue to look to man's government for protection and to lead you,  look to me and align yourself with the word and do all that I have asked you to do because it's not by might, it's not by your power, but it's by my spirit.  Rely on my spirit, rely on me.   


Then I heard the Lord say "did not I say greater works you will do?  What government was aligned with Jesus?  What government was aligned with Paul and with Peter?    What government was aligned with Noah?   Are these not like the days of Noah?  My church is the government, you as a governing body and you're not to look to other governments, you're not to look to the government, the man-made governmental system you are to pray for them and you are to lead your bodies, lead in the kingdom of God, based on the word and the leading of my spirit.  I have protection for you always.

Belief, A Very Powerful Force Every Human Possesses


Let's look at "The Power of Belief".   In Matthew 8:5, the bible reads "And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, (v6) And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. (v7) And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. (v8) The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.



Belief a very powerful force that every human possesses.


You see, Faith is substance and Belief is a prescription.



The Centurian was a human being and he possessed the power of belief.  


He was able to be fulfilled because he had a prescription and Jesus said, "Be it unto you according as it has been prescribed. 


A prescription is an establishment of a claim; establishment of the title to something; (deed); the right to acquire something.



Faith is substance and belief is prescription.


Consider the end of this biblical account: Matthew 8:9 

"For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it." (v10) "When Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel."


The Centurion had a prescription and his faith-filled it. Why could faith fill the prescription?  Because it is the substance. The result is fulfillment.


Remember that:


Faith is substance.

Belief is a prescription.


Whether you are black, white, brown, or red, rich, poor indebted or free, male, female, child or adult, as long as you are human you possess a powerful force.  It is called Belief.

The Law of AFG

 


There is a law in the Kingdom of God that I want you to be aware of. This law is called “AFG”. The law of "AFG" is available for every believer. Once convergence takes place you will get such extreme results, that only God gets the glory. The law of “AFG” is comprised of Attitude, Faith, and Grace. When The Law of AFG is in operation the result is fulfillment. 



Let me explain, “A” stands for “Attitude." Do you know where your attitude comes from? Your attitude is made up of your very own belief system. Your attitude is a conglomeration of your beliefs. At the root of your attitude is your belief system. 


Having a great attitude is paramount. Not just for popularity, status,  and likability, but altitude. Your attitude determines your altitude. And it is indicative of how high you can go, how long you can go, and how far you can go.


"F" stands for "Faith". Your faith is substance. With faith, you have substance of the invisible and substance for the impossible.


"G" stands for "Grace" and we are all familiar with “God’s unmerited favor”. We have danced around and praised, being so happy about being favored that we didn’t deserve, and mercy that we didn’t deserve. But now, look forward, there is a door. This is a door you must go through. It is the door of divine enablement. Yes, grace defined is also divine enablement. Go through that door.


Divine enablement identifies and defines you. When you have gone through the door of divine enablement you will smile when no one else is. You will have joy when others are sad. You will talk about finishing when it seems everyone else is quitting. When others retreat, you are revived. That is what divine enablement will do for you.


Consider Apostle Paul.


1 Corinthians 15:10 Voice

[10] Today I am who I am because of God's grace, and I have made sure that the grace He offered me has not been wasted. I have worked harder, longer, and smarter than all the rest; but I realize it is not me-it is God's grace with me that has made the difference.

Where Does Your Faith Stand?



Consider the scripture found in 1 Co. 2:4&5, " And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom but in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.


There's a whole lot of knowledge "flying" around these days. There are scientific reports, governmental reports, reports from organizations, and communities, all of which are being presented powerfully and persuasive as wisdom. However, when the reports are given, who's report will you believe?  


There is wisdom that comes from a lot of the reports that we may encounter, but what kind of wisdom is it? Consider James 3:17, which says, "But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy."


Next I ask, Is your faith standing in technology? Or, is your faith standing in the Power of God?  When your body needs healing, technology cannot heal you, but the power of God can.  The government cannot transform a life, but the power of God can.  Community organizations cannot stop the widespread pandemonium and fear resulting in many innocent lives dying prematurely, but the power of God can.



Now I ask, "What is your faith standing in?"  Understand that your faith is standing in something. When your faith stands in the power of God you get what the power of God produces. Likewise, if you were standing in water you'd get what water produces. If your faith stands in the government you only get what the government can produce.  If your faith stands in activism, you only get what activism can produce.  The conclusion should be that your faith is left standing in the Power of God.  The power of God heals you, delivers you, conforms you, transforms you, prospers you, and the list can go on and on.  When your faith stands in the power of God you get all that the Power of God produces.

Who is the Church in the Midst of All This?

The Church is made up of many members and we are one body; The ecclesia, the called-out ones. We are disciples of Christ.  In the midst of this, we have an identity that can be seen.


We are "wisdom", but not as the world speaks of the wise, and those who are considered to possess wisdom. Consider  James 3:15-18 KJV, which says, "...But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace."


Next, we are "peacemakers". A peacemaker is different from a peacekeeper. We are equipped to make peace because we carry the prince of peace, Jesus. (Is. 9:6) Consider Matthew 5:9 KJV, which says, "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."


We are "salt". Consider Matthew 5:13 KJV, which says,  "Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men."


The church is also "light". Consider Matthew 5:14,16 KJV, which says, "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."


The list above does not include all that the church is on the earth today, but it will start your journey of discovery with key descriptive words for the church.

Wisdom
Peacemaker
Salt
Light

Here's a thought to keep in mind while navigating through the challenges we're facing in life these days.  There was civil unrest at the time of Jesus' reign on the earth. Disciples had just faced Jesus having been put to death. They were in the upper room.  A leader emerged after they received power from on high.  

Today, we are amidst civil unrest. It comes in many forms such as: Economic and social injustice unrest, sports-related unrest, politically motivated unrest, as well as the reaction to police action unrest. That still doesn't change who we are.   The church is: Wisdom, Peacemakers, Salt and Light.

"The Shaking"

Have you been experiencing "the shaking?"  A part of the shaking was to wake us up so that we would walk in the authority that God has given us. We are a new nation, a whole new species and we have the DNA of Jesus.

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.  (Romans 8:29)

Here are 5 indications of "the shaking":

1.  Corona virus pandemic 
2.   Protests and Riots
3.  The Church not being considered essential 
4.  Fear that has gripped the world
5. The manipulation of racial issues

Let's walk in the authority that God has given us.  We were born for "such a time as this".
