Five Keys for 2010
There are 5 strategic keys that will help propel you into your future and the destiny God has for you this year. Ask Him for specific insight and direction for you and your life, and allow Him to manifest in these areas throughout 2010.
1. God is sounding a wake-up call.
God is sounding a wake-up call to the body of Christ! There has been a lull and a spirit of slumber that has spread over much of the body in the last couple of years. We have become satisfied with "church as usual." Unfortunately, many people have settled into a place of comfort and complacency—but God is shaking and waking this sleeping giant once again!
I hear the Lord say, "Some of you keep trying to snuggle in and get comfortable. I will not allow you to get comfortable. I did not create you for comfort; I created you to be a weapon of warfare."
What God is for 2010
Several themes and Scriptures for 2010 have been highlighted to me by the Holy Spirit recently as I have waited on the Lord. I believe we are entering into a crucial time, and I have some wonderful prophetic encouragements to share as well as some urgent prophetic warnings concerning the year ahead. As we meditate on God's promises and the following Scriptures, I believe 2010 will be a year of great fruitfulness in our lives!
1. Seven key words for 2010 are: fruit, rain, righteousness, harvest, overflow, restoration and provision (see Joel 2:22-26).
In 2010 Jesus is really looking for fruit. God desires to make His
people strong and fruitful.Gifts are not enough. It's by the fruit of
the Spirit that we will be known.
There will be a strong focus on developing spiritual character, maturity and fruitfulness in 2010. You will discern true disciples by their fruit, not their gifts (see Joel 2:22; Matt. 7:13-27; Matt. 21:18-19; John 15:2-8,16).
