Living in this day and age it is becoming more & more clear, evident and an ever-increasing reality that the timing for you to initiate what you feel you are called to do is NOW. Jesus said, “You know the saying, ‘Four months between planting and harvest.’ But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest.” John 4:35
Not tomorrow, next week or next year but NOW. Please underline, highlight and bold the word “initiate”. Initiate can mean many things. One step towards your goal. Going “all in”. Writing out your dream with action steps to move you towards your goal or developing your vision. It’s movement in a direction. Not busy activity going round and round the mountain but steps for you to cross the river into YOUR promised land.
If you are still waiting for someone to call you out with a prophetic word…..or you are waiting for your church to send you or for another confirmation or …….well, you might just have to wait for a very long time. Or you realize that NOW is your time!
Yes you need people around you and the right culture that celebrates you and what you sense you are called to do. A community and environment that celebrates the freedom to dream while stirring one to action with the “how to’s”.
At Eastgate we never “shut down” or stopped being church. We simply shifted gears. Has it been easy? Absolutely not. Yet we knew God was and is moving us in a direction. Discontinuing Sunday morning meetings was a step. It was initiated to move in the direction we felt we are called to go.
What about you?
What do you need to initiate?
