"I Heard the Lord Say: 'Full Speed Ahead!'"
"FULL SPEED AHEAD." That is what I heard the Lord
saying recently. I looked up the meaning of the phrase, and I found it is a term used to indicate that one should proceed with as much speed and energy as possible.
Don't Give Up! A Downpour of Blessings is
in Your Forecast
You have been delayed long enough. A supernatural acceleration is coming into your life, and it will happen SUDDENLY!
The speed by which it will occur I liken to an experience
my wife and children had at the lake one Saturday. My wife, Brooke, took our daughter, Giuliana, to a birthday party for one of her little friends. Brooke told me that Giuliana was swimming with her friends in the lake, while she entertained our infant son
on the embankment. Then, out of nowhere, there came a sudden shift. Everything changed.
One moment they were laughing and talking, enjoying the party, then suddenly there came a downpour of rain. There had been no visible
signs of rain. There had been no prediction in the weather forecast. It happened without warning. In fact, the downpour hit so suddenly that my wife grabbed up our infant son, called for Giuliana, and ran for cover.
be reading this right now and it doesn't look like anything is happening in your life. In fact, everything looks opposite of what God has promised to you. There is no "suddenly" in your forecast. Keep standing! I assure you that it's on its way. What happened
to my wife and children that day is going to happen to you.
Expect a downpour of God's blessings in your life. There is a sudden opening up of Heaven to you. You will no longer live in the drought that has plagued
your life. In one moment's time, God will change everything.
The Redeemer of Time
Do not be disheartened! As you walk into your NOW season there is no more
waste. Your God is going to restore those days, months and years that you thought were wasted. He is a redeemer of time. Listen, your times are in His hands. It is not too late.
"And I will restore to you
the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmer-worm, my great army which I sent among you." (Joel 2:25)
Many of you have received promises from God, but they have yet to come to pass.
You have been standing, praying and contending for the prophetic words that God has promised you. God says, "You may have been interrupted, but you haven't been rejected!" Your case has come before the courts of Heaven and it has been sealed with His approval.
His Gavel is Hammering in Your Favor
One day, I was praying and the Lord showed me a very large gavel swinging down on a large table. His gavel is hammering down in your favor.
Now you will see a greater demonstration of breakthrough, even greater than what you have asked of Him. The delay has ended and you are walking in accelerated destiny. God always exceeds expectations. Dream big. Believe for the impossible. Ask for
"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us..." (Ephesians 3:20)
I love this Scripture.
He is not just willing but He is able to do exceedingly above what we are able to ask or even think. God is not only willing, He's able, and also has the authority to do it!
"God is not a man, that He should
lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent; has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?" (Numbers 23:19)
If God spoke it, He will do it! His Word has to produce. The
only way His Word does not come forth in our lives is if we forfeit what God has for us. Sometimes the battle is so intense that we just lie down and give up. Whenever you lie down, you give up ground to the enemy.
Thief's Plot Against You Has Been Exposed
"The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." (John 10:10)
The enemy's plan is to overwhelm you with attacks until you give up and forfeit God's promises. Notice the above Scripture clearly stated the plot of the enemy—to steal, to kill, and to destroy. But praise the Lord, Jesus said,
"I am come that they might have life, and they might have it more abundantly." Yes, Jesus came and canceled the plot of the enemy. His desire is for His children to live an abundant life.
declare that enemy's secret plan against you is being exposed. Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed by your current circumstances. Maybe it seems as though everywhere you turn, you are being hit on every side and you have an overwhelming urge to give in and to
just give up. This usually occurs the most when God is ready to release something new in your life. There is no time to waste. God says, "FULL SPEED AHEAD."
