God is Calling, Follow The Flow!

Follow The Flow

David writes: ‘…All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be’ (Psalms 139:16 NIV). God put you here for a reason, but that doesn’t mean others will understand it or agree with it.

Nehemiah’s critics thought he was on an ego trip, getting the prophets to speak well of him, and only out to enrich himself. Paul’s critics called him a madman, a fool and a babbler. Christ’s adversaries said that He was controlled by a devil. Expect attack, and be ready for it! Don’t let it keep you from moving forward. Journalist Anna Quindlen, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992, had a dream in her heart that took her down a road others couldn‘t understand.

In an address to the class of 2002 at Sarah Lawrence College, Quindlen explained: ‘When I quit the New York Times to be a full-time mother, the voices of the world said I was nuts. When I quit the paper again to be a novelist, they said I was nuts again. But if success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your soul, it is not success at all.’

David said, ‘You have laid your hand upon me.’ When a dream comes from God, it will seem outrageous to more than a few people. You’ll have to overcome some naysayers to achieve it. That’s okay. If someone tries to silence your hope or deny your progress in the course of pursuing your dream, maybe that person isn’t your friend.

These words were sent from Kim Cordon of UK, a key intercessor for me. At 2:40 AM I opened and read. This rose up as a word for someone…..

————
“You’ve been tormented dancing around a few things. That is because you have not stepped into the full authority of your place. You want God to do something about a situation (or a few) and He says “you deal with it you have the authority, I am behind you.”

“Go ahead, seize the rose decisively and the thorn you fear won’t pierce your skin, it will break. Stop being bullied by concern over what others think. Stop obsessing over the past. START believing in the power of your own assignment. Some of you think you are in a recreational vehicle when in fact you are in a high-powered tank!

Stop trying to make ends meet and start making endings. What you are called to do is too important to dissipate in trying to fit into other people’s worlds or agendas. It is time you let the world feel the impact of a new idea. Originality has boldness in it. Be an original. You’ll find that the clearer you are the bolder you will be. You are authorized to make things happen.”

“Stop making ends meet and begin making clear endings. You know you have a clear ending when you have new starts. DO the thing you’ve been afraid to do.”

  1. That’s awesome that’s for me, so much going on right now. Is very heart breaking for how long & how much the enemy has deceived. Children have been hurt, the pure at heart have been hurt. And no one sees it ever & they believe they are in right standing, money and a religious spirit have fooled them. God made me realize this morning they need to be saved. I knew that part but in all that has been going on I get lost in the heartache. I just heard God say to me then right before I opened this email, I have authority. I have authority??? Yes! I do! That’s right Jesus that’s what I have been telling them they need Jesus & then silly me I have Him! Even if I stand alone! I have Him! He is there! Yes God! Thank you thank you God! Thank you Lance for following the flow of your heart & sending this entry out today!

  2. Thank you, Lance. This is very timely and it hit me right in the head :-) I have a couple of ideas that I feel I’m supposed to run with but I’ve been afraid to do so. I need money to do it and I’ve been afraid that me and my wife will invest the money without knowing how it’ll turn out. Fear of losing money that we need to buy a house later is holding me back. And not knowing how patents and lawyer stuff works, hehe. Is there anybody out there who are interested in helping us?

  3. Thank you for Sharing your wisdom and insight. I always walk away blessed. Last nights post on fb was excellent! Merry Christmas to you and yours. GodSpeed
