From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
When I read Joe Joe Dawson's word here, I was amazed because using different words, God gave me the exact same message yesterday.
For me, I saw wives, mothers, husbands and fathers as they went throughout their days, weeks, months and years, often deciding to stop, think and then re-evaluate the time they were giving the Lord. Then they made adjustments to their lives to give more to God.
It's NOT that the Lord needs to grab chunks of your time because He's saying, "You owe it to Me!" No! It's not that at all! It's because when we spend that time with Him, it is like putting premium gasoline in a high performance car.
It's going to run great and it's going to win the race that day.
For our own benefit, God is asking us to re-evaluate things so that we can make adjustments, followed by an enhanced relationship with Him and greater success in our lives and families.
Take a quick look at this word through Joe Joe Dawson, then perhaps take a few minutes to re-evaluation your time with the Lord.
This is going to really help you, I promise! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"It's Time to Tighten Down"
Joe Joe Dawson, Texarkana, Texas
Recently, the Lord spoke to me and said, "Tighten down." I then had a prophetic vision of a wrench tightening down nuts on a bolt to hold them in place. What I believe the Lord was revealing to me is that there are many Believers that are not consistent in the basic practices of walking with God. There are many that do not spend time in the Word of God. They are also not found in the secret place of prayer and do not live a lifestyle of fasting. Because of this, there are so many that are being led astray and growing complacent. God is calling His people to return to the basics, to tighten down those key principle practices in our daily lives, because of what He wants to do in the earth in this upcoming season.
After the Lord spoke this to me, I began looking at everything in my life and schedule that I had deemed a priority and began to reexamine them. I also took a look at my personal walk with God and began to carve out more time each day to devote to reading the Word and prayer. I began to tighten down on my spiritual life, on my priorities, on how I spend my time, and began to apply faith and action to this word from the Lord.
I believe the Lord is speaking to us in this season to "tighten down." This is a building, pioneering season and I want to encourage you, take this word and tighten down! Take a good honest look at how you have been spending your time and your resources. Reexamine your priorities, carve out more time to spend in the Word of God and in prayer. Take inventory of your life in this season and tighten down! (Photo via Needpix)
Preparation for the Days Ahead
I believe God is releasing this word to His people in this hour because of what is coming in the days ahead. I believe some of the most powerful moves of God are about to take place in the earth and God is looking for those who will be ready to be a part of it!
Many live their lives too loosely and too haphazardly. Let this not be said of us, especially in this explosive season! Tighten down on what God has called you to do and live with extreme focus and great intention. Step out into all those prophetic words God has spoken to you. Write the book God told you to write! Stop sitting on all those gifts God has placed inside of you and release them out into the world to bless others.
Now is the time to tighten down! If we want to see the Kingdom of God advance in this hour, God needs each of us to tighten down and move forward, not backward. Put your hands to the plow and don't look back in this hour! Tighten down and watch what God will do in and through your life!
