I sure appreciate the ministry of Ben Lim and the Millennial voice he is in this generation.
Ben is full of zeal for the things of God and is passionate about seeing God's Kingdom come on the earth.
Now that's a big word in many ways. It is time to ask God for the nations and watch what He will do! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
Go Big or Go Home!
"Ask of Me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession." (Psalm 2:8 ESV)
I believe we're in a season of going big. The Lord has anointed us to dream big! In fact, it may not be God if it's not big. Meaning that the Lord wants to challenge and stretch our child-like faith to dream and to go big in this season! The saying goes, "Go big or go home!" It's not time to faint nor to shrink small. It is time to go big! The nations are at hand! The harvest is awaiting!
An Anointed Season of Answered Prayer
"The Lord is awakening the roar and the war of the lions in the Church in this hour – people who will stand up in boldness and in courage and will speak forth the Word of the Lord with great power and authority."
I believe every single seed that you have sowed is about to be reaped. Every single prayer, every single offering, every single moment, every single thing that you have done in the name of the Lord you will harvest! It is time for harvest!
"And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." (Galatians 6:9 ESV)
Everything in the Kingdom and in the universe is about sowing and reaping. You will reap what you sow.
The Faith of a Mustard Seed Moves Mountains
The Lord is saying that it is time for you to harvest all that you have sown! "I have seen all of the small and little things that you have done," says the Lord! "All that you have done in the secret place will be revealed and it will be honored. I will reward you openly in due season for now is the time of the Lord's favor." Now is the time where the Lord Himself will promote you with His mighty hand. Do not look to man and do not look to a ministry. It will be the Holy Spirit who will promote His best of friends.
"But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you." (Matthew 6:6 ESV)
Every single seed is about to ripe up into harvest. Do not neglect the small and do not forfeit the seed. Remember, with the faith of a mustard seed you will move mountains. Principalities will be moved with your faith. Keep going and keep sowing. Divine movement and promotion is attached to the seeds that you have and are sowing.
Ask for the Double!
"And Jesus said to him, 'What do you want Me to do for you?' And the blind man said to Him, 'Rabbi, let me recover my sight.'" (Mark 10:51 ESV)
I believe we are in a season where the Lord is asking us, "What do you want Me to do for you?"
The Lord is giving us the opportunity to respond to Him. And do not shrink back, beloved. Do not stay small! But rather go big and watch Him promote you and watch His hand fulfill it. What do you want the Lord to do for you? Dream big. Ask big. Go big, for He is a big God. Ask for the double portions! (Photo via Unsplash)
"When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, 'Ask what I shall do for you, before I am taken from you.' And Elisha said, 'Please let there be a double portion of your spirit on me.'" (2 Kings 2:9 ESV)
There are many great generals and fathers who are going home to be with the Lord. Truly, the double portion of Billy Graham is falling upon this generation. The Lord is graduating many of these fathers and generals to glory because they must stand as witnesses in the heavenly places of our faith and attest to where we are going. They are standing as witnesses to what they have prophesied and prayed into.
They have faithfully served their season and generation, but now we must do so in reverence, which means that there is a greater responsibility that is now resting on our shoulders. We must discern the hour and ask for the double!
Bold as Lions
I believe the Lord is mantling us with boldness. Weak prayers will not cut it and weak faith will not make it. The true sons of God will go bold in this season. They will be the ones with courageous leadership and visionary insight. The Lord is anointing His children to be bold and to decree brave prayers. They will be as bold as lions; as the true kings of the jungle. They will walk forth in authority and dominion.
"The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion." (Proverbs 28:1 ESV)
The Lord is awakening the roar and the war of the lions in the Church in this hour – people who will stand up in boldness and in courage and will speak forth the Word of the Lord with great power and authority. They will not succumb to the political spirit nor to the spirit of this age but they will rise as a Nazarite of reformation and revival. Their faith will shake the heavens and the earth.
"And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the Word of God with boldness." (Acts 4:31 ESV)
Bold Before God's Throne
The Lord says to come boldly before Him at the throne of grace.
"Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." (Hebrews 4:16 ESV)
This means three things:
"I believe we're in a season of going big. The Lord has anointed us to dream big! In fact, it may not be God if it's not big."
1) Know your Father. Once you know that it is the Lord who has called you, then you will not stop for anything. The calling of God is sure and secure. We do not come forward in our own charitable deeds but by the divine summoning of our King.
2) Know your place. The more we know who God is, the more we will know what our role is. The Lord doesn't want you to be confused, but He wants you to fully thrive in the place that He has positioned you in. There's no need to compete nor to feel undervalued because you will fully win in the place that the Lord has called you to.
3) Know the time and season. With every season is a new strategy. Once we understand the time that we are living in, our function will shift to fulfill it. The Lord wants us to operate in the order of His Spirit. He wants us to operate in the timeline of His heart.
Once we take hold of these three truths, we will be unstoppable! The reason why we pray weak prayers is because we are still confused about the will of God. Once we know who He is and who we are, than we will truly be all that He has destined us to be. This confidence creates bold sons and daughters.
The Power of Your Decree
"You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways." (Job 22:28 NASB)
There is power in your decrees. There is power in your declarations. It is time for us to stand up on the walls of prayer and declare the Word of the Lord.
Kings decree while children complain. A person who understands their authority is one who understands the power of their words. The Lord is raising up a people who will speak boldly and proclaim the Word of the Lord over the nations of the earth. Angels shall move at your word. Miracles will be released at your word. Storms will be moved at your word. Governmental policies shall shift at your word. The Church will decree boldly the prophetic Word of the Lord. (Photo via Unsplash)
The Sound of Faith
"He said to them, 'Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?' And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, 'Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?'" (Mark 4:40-41 ESV)
Faith is the language of Heaven and the Lord wants to fill your heart and your mouth with His Word. We must believe that our God and our Father desires for us to go big and to dream big in this season.
"And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6 ESV)
We must partner with the Spirit of faith and pray big and go bold! "Do not hold back," says the Lord, "for I AM raising up My brave ones! My brave ones will pray boldly and go big! My brave ones will preach boldly and dream boldly. They will ask for the double!" (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
