"In 2018: Challenge Yourself and Cast Your 2020 Vision"
Joni Ames, Rock Hill, SC

From the Desk of Steve Shultz:

Steve ShultzJoni Ames is one who seems to "tell it like it is..." and she does that in her latest article. This is full of very practical steps for us to take, even daily, to move into this new year and to finish well toward the prophetic words the Lord has already given to us.

Also she challenges us to start preparing for the year 2020...already prophetic voices have said much will happen between now and then.

Joni shares:

20/20 is considered to be the best eyesight possible. I believe the Lord wants to release to us 20/20 vision for the year 2020, NOW. Let's not get caught up in the enemy's distractions and end up only having a "hindsight is 20/20" mindset. We need to pursue walking in the best state of mind and vision NOW, so that we are on time and on target for the year 2020 when it comes.

Let this word by Joni challenge and empower you to prepare ahead for all God will be doing...even in the new few years. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"In 2018: Challenge Yourself and Cast Your 2020 Vision"
Joni Ames, Rock Hill, SC


We're one year into Trump's presidency this month, with three more to go. On a recent morning I heard, "It's time now to cast your 2020 vision." It was clear to me that this spoke of both the next presidential election, as well as our own personal vision.

I have also been hearing the words, "Challenge yourself this year."

I don't care what age you are, if you're breathing and reading this, you have a purpose to fulfill and you need to get on with it. I go to many places where people want another prophetic word, but they have not gone after the ones they have already received. Why would God give another instruction when we have not yet walked out the ones He's already released? Not only do we have prophetic words we've received to fulfill, but there are other words hanging out there to be given to us—once we are obedient to our previous instructions. Let's get busy.

I believe we are about to receive a huge booster thrust from Heaven to catch us up in that area (Joel 2:25), as well as to thrust us forward in preparation for 2020. But individually, the release of that 2020 vision depends on our obedience to what's already been revealed to us.

Faith without works is dead (see James 2:17). James said, "I'll show you my faith by my works" (James 2:18). James 2:14 says, "What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works?"

Now that's a good question. What good has it done to "keep believing for" something if you do nothing toward it? For example, if you "keep believing" that you are going to be a great piano player but you do not get a piano, take lessons or practice, it ain't gonna happen. And it's the same way with that stack of goals, dreams, visions and prophecies you've collected over the years.

It's time to challenge yourself to complete them and cast your vision for 2020.

2020 Election

If you think this last election was tumultuous, you ain't seen nothing yet. The Church must not waste one moment being complacent about the 2020 election. We must do everything we can between now and then to keep the ball rolling. The past one didn't happen by itself and the next one sure won't.

The Number 8

The number "8" is both in our 2018 calendar and the 5778 Jewish calendar for this year. "8" is the number for new beginnings, as well as unity. On its side, it's the symbol for infinity/eternity. What we do now can be of lasting, eternal significance for our children, grandchildren, and generations to come. So let's make our time here count.

Additionally, on its side, it appears as a pair of eye glasses, which represents restoration of 20/20 vision no matter what our visual impairments have been, spiritually speaking. That's a great promise for us this year.

Raise the Bar

Rick Joyner and my previous spiritual papa and prophet, Bob Jones, have both said, "Let our ceiling be your floor, so you can start out at a higher place than we did." Let's now raise the bar for our next generation, so they can achieve greater success than we have. This is both for our natural and spiritual descendants.

20/20 Vision for 2020

20/20 is considered to be the best eyesight possible. I believe the Lord wants to release to us 20/20 vision for the year 2020, NOW. Let's not get caught up in the enemy's distractions and end up only having a "hindsight is 20/20" mindset. We need to pursue walking in the best state of mind and vision NOW, so that we are on time and on target for the year 2020 when it comes.

The Challenge

Challenge yourself. Do not waste time. It's time to achieve what God has promised us, and quit being deceived and wasting time by believing the lies of the enemy that we are not able. Again, this is both a word for us about preparing for the next presidential election, as well as our personal lives. They both go hand-in-hand.

• Challenge yourself by writing your vision, your goals, so that you may see them unfold and come to pass (Habakkuk 2:2-4).

• Challenge yourself by pursuing them.

• Challenge yourself by pushing yourself beyond your self-imposed limitations and excuses.

• Challenge yourself to achieve something specific every day this year. Write out daily goals and achieve them.

• Challenge yourself AND go for it. Whatever "it" is, you CAN and WILL achieve it. IF you go for it.

2020, here we come! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
