This is a most encouraging word for YOU in this season as God is calling us higher and equipping us for every good work and our calling.
I really enjoyed reading this revelation and vision Helen Cobanov of Australia recently had in which she shares:
Now read on to find out the rest of this vision and how we are to RESPOND to the Lord. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
Please know that our gratitude to you knows NO BOUNDS. Derene and I are praying that all who give to us will have MORE than a 7-fold return BACK TO YOU!
Invitations are being released and "IT'S TIME TO RESPOND"! These words have been sitting strong on my heart as the Lord continues to speak to me about this season we are coming into. This is a season of partnering, moving and responding! The Lord says, "It's time for My people to respond to the invitations I place before them. It's time to wake up, get up and respond to these."
The Lord then showed me a vision of Him standing before people. In His hands were invitations. Then I heard the words, "WHO WILL RESPOND? WHO WILL COME?" Some of these invitations are big and some are small, but each one holds great responsibility and is KEY to seeing His plans established in this world.
I noticed that the Lord was not putting these invitations directly into hands, but He was standing before people and inviting them to come to Him, to respond to the call. He is not looking for the most qualified, the most holy or worthy. NO. He is looking for those who are WILLING, for those who are HUNGRY, for those who are prepared to say, "Yes Lord, I accept! I'm all in!"
Then I saw people coming forward to take hold of these invitations, but the Lord didn't let go of the invitations. Instead He held them firmly in His hand and reached out His other hand and said, "HAND-IN-HAND, WE WILL DO THIS TOGETHER." I felt a weight and power in these words. As people responded and took hold of His hand, I saw an acceleration and increase blow over them, lift them and move them into even greater things than they could imagine. (Photo via Unsplash)
I saw people responding to small invitations, and increase started to pour out upon them as they suddenly became aware of even greater invitations before them. A fire in their hearts grew, faith started to rise up, and their passion to partner with the Lord to see His plans established became the very beat of their hearts.
"For the Lord God is one, and so are we, for we share in one faith, one baptism, and one Father. And He is the perfect Father who leads us all, works through us all, and lives in us all!" (Eph. 4:5-6 TPT)
"You Are My Pioneers"
Then I saw the word PIONEERING stamped into the ground, and a young baby who was learning to walk, standing before this word. The Lord again stood with an invitation in His hand before this baby and He was calling out, just like a parent does to encourage their baby to take their first steps, "You can do it, come to Me, take My hand."
The Lord started to speak to me about this and He said, "You are My pioneers and I am inviting you into something NEW! New territory, new levels of authority and influence, new things you have never done before. This will require you to take your first steps again and take hold of My hand. It's time to lay down the things of the past. The old and familiar ways of doing things won't work where I am leading you. My pioneers will need to take hold of My hand as we take this new ground. We will do this together, I will give you all that you need. I will lift you to new heights—I just need your 'YES'!"
Your Response Will Release the Chains
I saw many who have felt held back and even bound breaking free from the chains as they responded to these invitations. Many have wanted so desperately to respond in the past but never felt they could take that step because of timing, doubts or circumstances around them. But the Lord is saying, "Freedom is yours, fix your eyes on Me and COME. Don't give Me your excuses as to why you can't, because I am the Lord who will work all things together for good and My timing is perfect."
Then I saw a fire igniting in hearts as they stepped forward to respond. They broke free of the chains that held them back and I saw the word FREEDOM burning like a fire in their hearts. I saw mindsets freed, tongues released, arms reaching to the heavens in praise and feet running toward Jesus.
We are being invited into an incredible season of divine opportunities! It really is a season of "who dares wins," but in order for God to use us in a powerful way we must be willing to get over ourselves, our insecurities and our doubts and fears. We must silence the lies of the enemy that tell us we are not ready, not good enough, not worthy or qualified, and we must respond. The plans of the Lord WILL be established with or without us. These invitations are FOR YOU—"Who...me?" you say. Yes, YOU! (Photo via Unsplash)
The Lord is calling out saying, "Who wants it? Who will come? Who can I send?" It is time to respond. It's time to run to Him, run into His arms! It's time to seek His face, His will, His way, and from that place He will guide us and lead us. We need to respond to His invitations! They are in His hand and they have the timing, the details and all the things we need to know. We just have to say "YES" and come to Him.
"Respond My Bride! Awaken and respond! I am inviting you into greater things. I will take you by the hand and lead you there; we will do it together."
"I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows Me in faith, believing in Me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with My Father!" (John 14:12 TPT) (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
