Once again, Katie and I have launched out on a grand adventure. This adventure includes a son and living in America without internet. This may explain a little bit why we have not posted in a while. I apologize for that.
Even now, our hearts are burning to step even more into the destiny that God has for all of us, including young Azariah. What will this baby boy, my son, someday accomplish? No one dreams of mediocrity for themselves or for their children. I declare that my son will do greater things than I, and this photo is a prophetic declaration of that!!!
I know that you too have a deep yearning to do something great. You dream and plan how you can become the greatest and walk in grand destiny.
From before you were born, God had already been planning to use you for life changing, world-shaking things (Eph 1:11-12)!!! He is the God who does exceedingly, abundantly above all that you ask for, hope for, or imagine according to His power working in you (Eph 3:20). The destiny of the Lord on YOUR life is so amazing that you would never believe it if He told you. The enemy comes in with all his deception, thievery, and destruction to cause you to settle for a mediocre existence of entertainment, pleasure, and passivity. The things He has for you seem fun, but are designed to distract and destroy the destiny you have been created to accomplish.
Do you want to settle for a mediocre existence or walk into your God-given destiny?
Read Jeremiah 1:4-10
Before Jeremiah was born, God had called him to be a prophet to entire nations, to build the Kingdom of God, and tear down the work of the enemy. Even though God was speaking to him, he was unsure of himself and gave an excuse, his age. God lovingly tells him not to believe the deception of the enemy, but to trust in what He says about him. God is the One who has called him, and He is the One who will completely equip him for his God-given destiny.
What deception is the enemy trying to use to keep you from your Destiny?
What excuses are you giving God that you are not able to do what He is calling you to do?
Challenge: Ask Holy Spirit to reveal any deception the enemy may be placing in your life. Ask for forgiveness for agreeing with the enemy and believing a lie. For every deception, get a leader or friend to help you find a verse in the Bible that replaces that lie with God’s perfect Truth. Declare the Truth of who God says you are and begin to walk in it!!!
