I really enjoyed this short, but powerful word from Joe Joe Dawson as he shares:

I believe God is now calling us to double down and reinforce our foundation. If you double down in this season and focus on establishing a firm foundation, you will be able to build something for the Kingdom of God that will last.

"God is Calling Us to Double Down in This Season"

Reinforcing Our Foundations

The Lord spoke to my wife and me at the beginning of this year, that the first 90 days of 2019 would be a time of fast-paced building. We felt that the first 90 days of the year were a time where the Lord would lay a foundation we could build upon for the rest of the year in the Body of Christ. As the first 90 days have come and gone, I believe that the foundations God wanted were established in people's lives and everything they put their hands to.

I believe God is now calling us to double down and reinforce our foundation. If you double down in this season and focus on establishing a firm foundation, you will be able to build something for the Kingdom of God that will last.

The Principle of Doubling Down

We may first go low and do the necessary things that may not seem as flashy or important in the world's eyes in order to move forward and build high. When an architect designs a high-rise building, he has to lay a foundation just as deep into the ground going down, as he will build above.

In 2 Kings 18, we find out that Hezekiah became king at the young age of 25. Hezekiah was a great king and was successful because he understood the principle of doubling down. The Bible says this about King Hezekiah in 2 Kings 18:3-5, "And he did what was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father David had done. He removed the high places and broke the sacred pillars, cut down the wooden image and broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made... He trusted in the Lord God of Israel, so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor who were before him."

What made Hezekiah so great? Hezekiah knew how to double down. As soon as Hezekiah became king, 1) he went into the house of God and removed the high places, 2) tore down the sacred pillars, 3) cut down the wooden images, and 4) broke the golden serpent into pieces. Hezekiah's first move as king was to clean out the house of the Lord from all of the idolatry that had been defiling it for so long. He did these things to go low and to build plant.

Will You Go Low to Go High?

God is looking for those who understand the importance of doubling down and working on the foundations of their lives before they build or plant what God has placed in their hearts to accomplish. If you build a beautiful house with the best materials on a poor foundation, it will not last! God wants to sow seed into good ground.

God is raising up those who will double down, with no toleration for idolatry, and those who will value their foundations in God more than anything they may be destined to do. Doubling down is spending time in prayer, choosing to fast, and allowing the Lord to process us and keep our hearts pure and our character and integrity strong.

I want to challenge you today: double down and become like King Hezekiah who went low, tearing down what needs to be torn down and breaking what needs to be broken so that God can move and do something new that will last!
