The Lord has been talking to us for a while about this concept of extreme acceleration and "suddenlies." I hear Him saying again, "Prepare for the time of acceleration."
The Lord says, "For many people, I bring a visitation of acceleration, but they are not ready to do what I have called them to do. Their mindset is to resist change. Their mindset is full of fear, and they're afraid when the season comes and begins to move fast. They want to put the brakes on, and they want to say, 'No, I want to think about this.'"
The Lord says, "There's a time to think and to pray, and there's a time to do and to take actions. I am anointing My people to be risk takers; I'm anointing My people to get off the mark."
Don't let fear paralyze you. Don't let depression paralyze you. Don't let the past depress you. Don't let the past keep you back. When the time comes, I see this picture I've seen in movies of the hero or the heroine when they have to jump onto a fast-moving train or onto a car from another car that's careening down a road. Well, the Lord says, "Jump!"
A lot of people say, "Well, what if I miss?" Well, what if you win? I believe that the Lord is saying this especially to a lot of entrepreneurs right now. Some of you, in fact, have been praying earnestly for a confirmation that you are supposed to make a move, and as long as you have peace in your heart about that, just go ahead and jump. "Launching out into the deep" would be a biblical reference we could use for this. The Lord says, "If you snooze, you lose!" Get ready for acceleration, and be ready to move when the extreme comes.
