God is as big and bold as we make Him to be...so that means you are being called to make big and bold moves in Him, as Joe Joe opens with this:

Recently, in a time of corporate prayer, I could feel the presence of God in such a strong and unique way. Then the Lord spoke so clearly to me and said, "Bold moves. Big, bold moves." I knew that the Lord was talking about this season. I could sense that this is a strategic time for many in the Body of Christ to move forward in their calling by making big, bold moves.
Inspect What You Expect
When I received this word from the Lord, I really took some time to just get before Him and do some self-examination. It is crucial for each of us to inspect what we expect. To prepare for the bold moves God may ask each of us to take, we must get alone with the Lord and lean in so that we can hear and understand where He is leading each of us in this season. We should intentionally get ourselves out of the way and allow the Lord to move us forward so that we can advance boldly.
In this season, expect the Spirit of God to come behind you and start to propel you forward into your purpose and the prophetic destiny on your life. This is not a season to pull back or shrink back. This is a season to make big, bold moves in faith! Those who are secure in who they are in God, and in what He has called them to do, will take huge leaps of faith in this season.

Properly Aligned with the Lord
Recently, I've heard many prophetic voices saying that this is a season to get properly aligned with God. We often hear about apostolic and prophetic alignment, which is important. However, I believe getting 'properly aligned' with the Lord and with His will for our lives is so important in this season. Once we are properly aligned, then we will be able to go forth and make some bold moves for the Kingdom of God.
Bold Heroes of the Bible
When I think about big, bold moves, I think about Esther. She made a bold move when she called an entire nation to fast and when she went to the king unannounced, which was forbidden at the time. The favor of God was on Esther's life; when she made those bold moves in faith, an entire nation was saved.
John the Baptist also made big, bold moves when he preached repentance and the Kingdom of God when no one else was preaching about those things.
John made big, bold moves knowing that he might lose his life; yet he still moved forward in faith.
I also think about Moses' big, bold moves—confronting Pharaoh and then leading an entire population of people out of slavery.
I think about the big, bold moves that Caleb and Joshua made when they led the Israelites out of the wilderness and into the Promised Land.
I think about Noah, who made a big, bold move and spent years of his life building an ark just because of one prophetic word from God.
There are so many people throughout history who have made big, bold moves for God and have changed the world. Are we willing to be like these heroes of our faith and make those kinds of big, bold moves? (Photo via MaxPixel)
What Big, Bold Move Is God Calling You to Make?
God is calling each of us to do something big and bold for Him. As a Believer, your life carries so much significance and potential for impact. This is a day and an hour in which the Lord is asking many to crush their comfort zones, crush complacency and make some big, bold moves. Some will make a big, bold move and break generational curses and mindsets. Some will make a big, bold move and start a new business or ministry. Some will make a big, bold move and shift from one body of Believers to another...
Whatever big, bold move the Holy Spirit is leading, nudging, pulling or pushing or you to make, go for it! Now is the time to be bold and make big moves!
