RIDING THE WAVE OF A LIFETIME

“And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him, and said to him, ‘The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor!'” Judges 6:12

“Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” Luke 1:28

As happened with Gideon and Mary in these two instances, it is time for God’s children to step into their PURPOSE and CALLING. It’s not just any courage, but a kairos kind of courage that empowers us to leap beyond the hope of our calling and into its appointed time of action and fruitfulness.

It’s a crossing over of the mind, and an empowerment of the heart to fully believe, fully receive, and then to seize the purposes and promises we’ve prayed and waited for as the moment arises.

We are being presented “suddenly” moments, for such a time as this, to step into a breakthrough that is bigger than our hope can comprehend. These might be moments that look like immense risk or require vulnerability, but we have to seize that incoming wave at the opportune time with fresh courage.

“I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it?” Isaiah 43:19

We must realize the breakthrough starts within us – so it can be brought to life all around us – by stepping outside our comfort zone and recognizing the new thing that He is doing now.

BREAKING OUT OF OUR COMFORT ZONE

“I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it?” Isaiah 43:19

Often, the hardest thing about receiving something new for us is that it almost always requires something new of us. Those new breaker waves we pray and believe for rarely flow through our familiar comfort zone. They don’t stay within our boundaries or control, rather, they are the move of His Spirit calling us to jump outside our self-imposed box and ride the wave of a lifetime.

How often do we turn a deaf ear to the question the Spirit asks us each day when He inquires, “Shall you not know it?”

Will we know the new thing God is doing in, through and around us? Will we recognize His fresh move, beyond our insecurities, critiques or judgments? Will we be able to embrace the very thing we’ve been praying for when it passes by just outside familiar waters? If we will, it will take courage.

It will require us to be lion-hearted, found among those through the ages who have – like Gideon – lived a courage that is not so much about a valiant charge into battle but about a radical step of obedience to the leading of the Spirit of God.

YOUR MESSENGER OF COURAGE

You have a Messenger of Courage within you, a Helper, the Spirit of Truth, and He is calling to you like He did Gideon and Mary, already addressing you as beloved and a victor, not just hopeful of such. He wants to visit you, meet you, and call to the courage He already sees within you. He wants you to see yourself as He does, and He is imparting to you the courage necessary to leap out and seize the moment that is only just beyond your reach to step into the appointed time of your destiny.
