In the previous blog, we learned about the four keys we need to activate in our own lives in order to be spiritually positioned and on board with the Lord’s vision. This week, I would like us to look at the significance of staying on board even through the storms of life.
As Christians, we get excited when we encounter a move of God and receive a prophetic word. We stay in a church while hoping for the next word, but if the prophetic does not keep flowing to us, we lose hope and faith; we sometimes begin a search for a new word elsewhere. But the truth is, we can be empowered to fulfill our destiny through just one prophetic word that was spoken over us by God.
When we board a real ship and begin to sail into the deep seas, we can’t just jump ship every time we feel uneasy or queasy. If we attempt to, we’ll probably drown in the deep ocean. In addition, we need to pray for and respect the leadership that is placed over us in the same way that every ship has an assigned captain and workers that help navigate it to its appointed destination.
If you find yourself defaulting towards this pattern, it is time to stop, realign, and get back on board with the Lord’s vision. Quit making excuses to the Lord. First Samuel 15:22 reminds us that the Lord is delighted when we obey Him and His plans and not our own. He is waiting patiently for us to get on board His royal cruise ship and to embark on our spiritual expedition.
If you sense that your life feels empty and pointless, then your ship hasn’t sailed yet. However, it’s not too late! Pursue your purpose, answer God’s call, and get on board with the vision He has for you – He has amazing and wonderful places He wants to take you.
Years ago, in a dream, I was called into an open field where my pastor was standing, wearing a white sailor’s suit and a captain’s hat. Behind him was a huge, white cruise ship. To my amazement, he informed me that everyone was on board and waiting for me so that the ship could sail. I made several […][Continue reading...]
