Monday night we had our weekly presence and prayer night at ALife. I was stirred in my heart to proclaim the following word:
I hear God saying that, I am establishing My mountain in another measure, but My mountain is made of life-giving stones. My mountain is the stature of Christ. And It’s in this season and in this time that you’re going to see high things come down because something higher is rising within you. For I have declared that this was a time for you to arise and shine, for your light has come. And you’re going to see that that light is going to expand. I’m replanting, I’m rebooting, I’m remeasuring, I’m reviving, I’m renewing, and I’m bringing forth another measure in My grace, says God. And you’re going to see that there is going to be a change because I am changing your beliefs. I’m changing your beliefs. I’m even changing your ability to believe; to believe Me, to believe one another. Not in the stories of men apart from Me, but in the stories of Me within them. For I am the desire of the nations and I am the testimony of the generations. So, it’s another measure in this season that I’m raising My mountain. And I’m going to demonstrate that My love is strong. Beliefs are being drawn to Me; beliefs are being inspired by Me. I’m teaching you My ways, you’ll walk in my paths, from your heart will go my law of love and you’ll become a greater expression of My community as My heaven invades your earth, says God.
What is the higher thing rising within our hearts? It is not a time to be distracted by the tumbling of stones, the shaking of worldly mountains, or the subduing of earthly hills. It is time to arise in the stature of Christ and shine. This is truly a time to learn the way of trusting God. It is a time of learning the way of connection to God. It is a time to learn the way of believing God. It is not a time for the plans of men, but a time to find the footsteps set before us by God as we live in each moment of each day. This doesn’t mean we are aimless or wandering in our ways, we are being established in God’s ways. Some things are going to have to be replanted to be made NOW and new in Christ. Some systems in our thinking are going to have to be rebooted in order to take hold of how it is in heaven in our hearts. Some objectives in our lives are going to have to be remeasured so we can allow God to reveal to our hearts what is important and what is not. Some things in our hearts are going to have to be revived so our love can be new, and we can be a testimony of a new song for a new day. We must embrace the fact that God is working His grace in our lives and in our world. What is next is not about us, it is about seeing God’s glory and giving glory to His name. God’s doesn’t teach us His ways by a means of information. He teaches us by submersions in His Spirit that transforms our hearts and minds to become a testimony of His Spirit of Understanding in all things. He intends for our way of life to be changed by His way of life working within our hearts and minds.
Isaiah 2:2 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. 3 Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
God changes the actions of our lives by changing the beliefs of our hearts. The evidence of changed beliefs is seen by changed actions. Those changed actions inspire a change in the imaginations of our hearts. A change in our imaginations is a change in the expectations of our hearts. A change in the imaginations or expectations of our hearts will change our influence or the type of influence we give in our world. The mountain of God is found when His unshakeable values become the inspiration of the beliefs of our hearts. That internal motivation is the only thing that can truly consume the strongholds and high towers of the beliefs of men apart from God. This place of change comes by trusting God in times of change. It happens by an eager seeking of a connection with God in our hearts. This change comes when we believe God because we are able to see Him as He is. When we see Him, we become like Him because of who He is.
Leaders, we must model and inspire trusting God at all times. We must lead others into the place of purposely connecting to God in their hearts. We must exhibit a way of life that demonstrates our believing all that God says and believing fully in who He is.
