Determine now to do “Whatever it Takes” to please God

Posted: January 29, 2016 in Prophetic Dreams, Revelations and Prophecy

2016 has the possibility for tremendous change as our world grapples with age-old issues of cultural divide, anti-Semitism and new issues stemming from elections, technology, immigration movements, etc. Our entire focus needs to be on knowing and pleasing God…this quote from a martyred African pastor was given to me 15 years ago at church…so resonated with me. The passion. It has been my Bible’s bookmark ever since and speaks to this single-minded focus:
WHATEVER IT TAKES
I am a part of the fellowship committed to dong “whatever it takes.”
I have Holy Spirit power. The die has been cast.
I’ve stepped over the line. I am out of the comfort zone. The decision has been made.
I’m a disciple of His. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, or back away.
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tame visions, mundane talking, chincy giving and dwarfed goals!
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, or popularity.
I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded.
I now live by presence, lean by faith, love by patience, lift by prayer and labor by power.
My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is ough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, my mission clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, diluted, or delayed
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won’t give up, shut up, let up, o burn up till I’ve preached up, prayed up, paid up, stored up, and stayed up for the cause of Christ.
I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go til He comes, give til I drop, preach til all know, and work til He stops.
And when He comes to get His own, He’ll have no problem recognizing me because I have dedicated my life to be a part of the fellowship committed to doing “whatever it takes.”

“The Lord hates every liar, but he is the friend of all who can be trusted.” (Proverbs 12:22) It bears repeating: You cannot choose yourself as a prophet. God finds and chooses you. This site is gathering truth for such a time as this. God is gathering his own.

On 12-12-15 I dreamed I was part of a working group of people, dressed as if for business — all specialists. I say to them, “You all applied for your jobs, but I was just chosen…so not sure why I’m here.”  They have name tags with classifications, so I look down at myself and see COMMUNICATIONS. Aha! I think. That makes total sense.

I dreamed last night of being pregnant at 54 (something new being birthed) and as I showed my mid-section to my nine-year-old, I said, “Most of the growth happens in the last month.” We are all joining together, God’s prophetic community and offering him sacrifices of praise through our belief in His words to us and through us to the world. Shalom and peace to us all as God inhabits the praises of his people — as we all wait together for 2016 to develop.
