From A Year In The Now
Yesterday, when I wrote about moving into warp speed, I didn't know that this was today's reading from AYITN. If you don't have a copy of the new edition, you need to get one, or buy one for a friend. I'll be doing a book signing on May 4.
If you didn't read yesterday's article, please take the time to do so now...many blurkers were converted yesterday...
"For the Lord God will help Me,
therefore I will not be disgraced;
therefore I have set My face like a flint . . . ." (Isaiah 50:7)
Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because my life is like an arrow shot from the bow. There is no turning back for me now . . . I am through the looking glass of self-examination. God is taking me, just as I am . . . no time to change . . . this is the day . . . this is the hour . . . this is the moment . . . for such a time as this . . . the day of the Lord is here . . . the Spirit is moving . . . go . . . go . . . go!
Today I will move at God's pace — my steps will be ordered by Him. I trust Him with all of my heart, and lean not unto my own understanding. He Himself is directing my path(s) . . . in Him I move . . . the future is now . . . faith is now . . . God is now . . . I am in the now . . . resurrection life is mine . . . Zoë (life) is mine . . . the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is mine . . . move . . . move . . . move!
Today I will keep up with Him. I will move with the cloud (cloud by day – fire by night) . . . good-bye past . . . good-bye yesterday . . . good-bye comfort zone . . . good-bye tradition . . . good-bye familiar spirits . . . hello new . . . hello now . . . hello transformation . . . hello conformation to His image . . . hello revelation . . . hello rhema word . . . hello Jesus-manna . . . give me this day my daily bread . . . eat . . . eat . . . eat!
Today I will fly like an eagle. I will run and not be weary . . . I will walk and not faint . . . walk in the Spirit . . . go with the flow . . . demonstrate dominion when I can . . . relinquish control when I must . . . hold on . . . let go . . . hold on . . . let go . . . from glory to glory to glory . . . flow . . . flow . . . flow!
Today I will erase the tapes in my head that keep directing me backwards. I can't go back . . . I remember Lot's wife . . . the Lord is my rear-guard, because there is no armor behind me . . . there is nothing for me in Egypt, so I will make the best of the wilderness, even before I find my promised land . . . forward . . . forward . . . forward!
Today I will allow vision to propel me into my future. Vision keeps me going . . . vision keeps me believing . . . where there is no vision, the people perish (where there is no prophetic revelation, the people cast off restraint). Vision keeps me disciplined . . . I am moving . . . I am growing . . . I am climbing . . . I am excelling . . . vision . . . vision . . . vision!
Today I will exceed expectations. There is more on the inside than on the outside . . . I am greater, stronger, wiser on the inside. Today I will live from the inside out . . . the real, better me is emerging day by day, and today I will live in the . . . now . . . now . . . now!
