For Those Who DareThrust Out!
March 4, 2013
We have our boarding passes and in a few short weeks, the law of gravity will yield to the law of lift and we shall be on the plane to greater heights than we ever imagined!
I hope you are ready for increase, because it is super-abundant harvest time! It’s time to thrust out and let down the nets for a boat-sinking, net-breaking move of God in the earth!
Our partner in the climb, GODTV, is a vital and integral part of this great harvest. And we, dear companions, are more vital to their increase and outreach than you can imagine. We must begin to powerfully pray for them, for rapid increase, for reach, for constant protection. Can you join me in that? Pray specifically for a huge increase in monthly partners who catch the vision of covering the earth with His Word in ways other Christian networks are not.
Some of you may not have ever watched GODTV, for there are other Christian networks here in the states that are on more cable outlets. But you can connect with them live on internet from anywhere! Regardless, it is critical in this hour that they increase!
Here’s why this matters… there are some people that GODTV will reach that the others will not. I like to say that some people will respond to young dynamic speakers with pink hair and some respond to more mature ladies with pink wigs, some hearts respond to table talk and some 🙂 to mountain takers. We all are a PART of the BODY with important things to accomplish.
Strategically selected by GOD, ALL of our partners for the climb are pioneering into areas where the enemy has long-held strongholds. GODTV, Uttermost Witness, Pearl Alliance, and Mission Heartbeat are each and corporately taking land for the Glory of God in serious ways.
These powerful vessels of God are taking territory. And, the strongman that once held it must be bound and tossed out by you and I in prayer! More than we know! More than we have been, we must actively take the stand on their part!
Just this morning in prayer He caused me to realize that WE, our team of men and women of valor, are in place strategically to be encouragement to these ministries. We are set in place to bolster their faith and refresh them.
Do you have any idea how refreshing it is to a battle-tired servant to have others come alongside with determined faith and say in tangible ways, "We so strongly believe in the vision of God for your ministry that we will do everything necessary to stand with you all the way"? Let me tell you, I would have given up a hundred times if YOU weren’t with me for this same task!
I found out this morning. Here I was expressing to GODTV how, just like in 2 Corinthians 8:2 that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of your joy, and some even deep poverty, are abounding unto the riches of liberality in giving to see the vision come to sight, asking for more time for faith to bring in the remaining funds, when I get a note back saying how much YOUR FAITH enCOURAGEd THEM!
GLORY TO GOD! I realized then another reason we are in place with this climb. We are instruments in place they THEY don’t quit! (Not that they ever think of that, but I am just saying… no one ever gets too much encouragement!)
This climb, conquering,of Mt Kilimanjaro as a prophetic act is not our mission trip or project… it is His! Are you kidding? Before God asked me to climb this mountain, I never owned a pair of hiking boots! I am a high heels girl by preference. But on His asking, I chose to become, to be transformed by Grace, into a high hills girl!
Much to my constant amazement, it is happening in me by the power of God working in me, Spirit, Soul, and Body. Things are moving. Things are changing. Lives and bodies are being made whole and inspired by this outrageous step of faith!
But this is so so so much more than that!
There are literally millions of lives in the balance depending on the reach of this project.
Can I just be completely transparent here? I do not have a clue all that God is doing with this. I don’t know yet what is after I step on that summit to declare, "Greater still is the Love of God for You!". He said climb, summit, speak the Word. By faith, that is exactly what I will do. Yes, I will.
The arms of His outreach that we have on our heart to herald, to champion, each of those charities reaches thousands of different lives every single day. Those alone are worthy of our deepest heart-rendered prayers of faith for salvation, provision, perfection (being made whole in Jesus Christ). Yet my spirit has a knowing that there is more, way more, even beyond that which we do not yet see.
As I have hiked and prayed, hours at a time, 5-6 days a week for the past nine months, I often have asked God what and how to do what is needed, what else can be done, how to get the resources in, oh, just hundreds of unanswered questions, I repeatedly get this very simple answer:
Gather the Prayers. I AM moving, the river is flowing. Gather the pray-ers.
I chuckle with Him lightly about the day I sat upon a local hilltop (no longer referred to as a "mountain" given the comparison of things to come!), for hours endeavoring to hear from God. I prayed, "Please tell me what else to do, Lord! I’ve got nothing!" Here’s the reply…
"It’s not that you are hearing "nothing". It is that you have not thought what I have said thus far to be important enouh to be THE answer. I said, "Gather the pray-ers."
Hello. Can you say, repent? Is that a "DUH" moment for anyone else? I assumed that you were already praying, I took that for granted, of course we are all praying! So, what else are we to do? I wanted another answer. You know, something to DO. Michelle, that is something to do. THE thing to do. (But aren’t we? Evidently not like we are about to or like He has need of us to!)
Yes, this whole time has been filled to the overflowing with humbling moments like that. But oh~! the joy of being led moment by moment to know Him more.
Deep abiding joy comes every time I reach one of those humbling moments. Joy with the realization that if I just don’t quit, Michelle, and many others, are gonna make it. We will make it, yes we will, and "they" (the lost and hurting ones) will make it into the arms of Love.
So I have two instructions now. Hundreds of questions answered powerfully in two solid, definite directions: climb Mt Kilimanjaro because Love asked. And… gather the pray-ers.
One of our favorite quotes is by Lillian B Yeomans,
"The age of miracles is now for the one who will dare to thrust out!"
God is inviting whoever will hear and respond to be involved in His Plan, to be instilled with greater faith, and to be inspired to a deeper relationship with Jesus. United, let’s thrust out! And cause the law of gravity to yield to the law of LIFT!
Are you one of God’s pray-ers? Let Love inspire you to be LIFTed higher in being a doer of acts of greater faith. I am making a call to you all over the globe. For the rest of this journey, we now require dedicated, committed, faithful and faith-filled prayers to unite and encircled this mission.
Like the march around Jericho before the walls came down, that battle belonged to the Lord, as does this one in this hour. The Jericho victory was on the way to their possessing the promised land. It was a step in Israel taking the land God promised, the land Love asked them to step out in faith and possess.
(You know, I just now see that the date God celebrates that victory at Jericho is exactly seven days from our descent from the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Very interesting.)
He said, "Gather the pray-ers." If you will go before God and commit to praying for His Mission on a regular basis, in the faith of God and the flow He directs us, please LET ME KNOW.
I am asking you to find at least one other person that you will join with either by phone or in person to meet with at least once every week (to come into agreement over whatever we send you in email) because He said "gather" the prayers. Together we put more power in action and faith feeds faith!
And, very important, in addition to those times of agreement weekly, we ask you to set a timer on your cellphone or other device to pray at 8:00am and 8:00pm every day from March 5 through April 2. Wherever you are at the time, for a few seonds to speak a Scripture or longer if you are able, speaking the Word of faith at those hours (in your own time zone) will keep a constant covering LIFTed up. People can join the team as they hear about it even if they miss the starting date.
Please, here is a key instruction: We are asking each person to pray specifically from the Scriptures and in the Holy Spirit. This is one time we are not asking you to "pray as you are led". We ask that it be specifically Scripture(s) or in tongues through the utterance of the Holy Spirit. We cannot miss it with His Word and His Spirit. And, we will all be on the same page as God!
I will post prayer points and prayer updates as we go for those who are ALL IN. Also, we feel there may be further instructions for the time period April 2-8 but will give that as we know it.
I ask you to each remember that God ordained this. You know in your heart if He is leading you, asking you, or even requiring of you, to make this offering of prayer time. I trust each person will make the right step in answer to His voice and He will equip you with faithfulness and the moving of the gifts of His Spirit.
Join me on Facebook for updates! We arrive in Tanzania on March 25 and depart on April 2. Please mark your calendars to follow the climb March 26-April 1.
Thank you for your time, faith, and prayers. I am hopeful that you will join your faith with ours and together will conquer the mountains in His Name. I know this for certain… with or without us, the kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdom of our God. As for me and my house, we are… ALL IN!
