God took the month of January to expand our souls for greater increase in territory and an acceleration of our destiny this year. He did this through increasing our identity in Him as He expanded our spirit, our soul, our temple and our capacity.
Now, as God expanded us in our souls, we will step into a larger sphere of influence, greater regions and territories. In 2021, we will have tremendous growth as we step into this expanse.
Third John 1:2 (KJV) says "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." As our soul grows in capacity our territory of influence grows.
January was a spiritual foundation month. It's a time we positioned ourselves properly for the year ahead. I know you were already praying and fasting, but have you also taken the time to give?
Proverbs 3:9-10 (MEV) says, "Honor the Lord with your substance, and with the first fruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your presses will burst out with new wine."
Lay the right foundation for yourself because I see in the spirit financial provision is coming to the faithful.
Jesus is the first fruit of many brothers. We are the "many brothers," and we put Him first by setting time to pray, fast, give and consecrate ourselves unto to Him. You see, when you make yourself holy, everything you touch shall be holy. "For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches" (Rom. 11:16, KJV).
Greater territories are coming to you in 2021 as you purify and consecrate yourself, as you continue in a deep, abiding relationship with the Lord. Your expansion shall be great! Allow the Lord to continue to minister to you about your upcoming transitions to greater increase and multiplication. Set your foundation on God, for He is the master builder. He is preparing your temple, correcting, aligning and repositioning things in your life for a season of victory!
God is building divine relationships and making new alignments so that acceleration can take place, and you can enter the new territories He has for you in 2021. I see streams that will quickly bring you to your purpose and destiny. Are you ready for what is coming?
Every blessing I have ever received is because I practiced giving God my first fruits (praying, fasting and financial giving) at the beginning of each year. You have to have your heart right; you have to be consecrated in prayer and fasting, and you have to offer the Lord your heart and your financial first fruits to remain in the right place. These acts lead to a strong and correctly laid foundation. Will you build a strong foundation? Remember, when the root is holy, the branches are holy. When the first fruit is holy, the lump is also holy (Rom. 11:16).
God wants our first of everything, and everything else grows from that point. When we see and understand this, we come to know that God is building a foundation in us. Are you sensing that God wants to start establishing new relationships for you? Know this: The Lord is giving you a divine set up. Just begin to move into those places.
Acceleration is coming. God has strong relationships that will help establish your destiny. As God properly positions you, you will begin to see a major acceleration. God is connecting you with people, divine alignments, and He is giving you new territories. The Lord showed me that many of these new alignments aren't temporary; they are structured, permanent alignments from Him. Some of these will come in 2021 and carry you almost to the end of the decade.
New territories are before you. God is setting you up for new things. You will be able to advance in the gifts that He has given you. You are set up to complete the project for every kingdom assignment that God has given you and each mantle that you are carrying for Him.
We are called to serve God and be faithful in all things. In Luke 6:47-49 (MEV) Jesus says, "Whoever comes to Me and hears My words and does them, I will show whom he is like: 48 He is like a man who built a house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation on rock. When the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, but could not shake it, for it was founded on rock. 49 But he who hears and does not obey is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently. Immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great."
Acceleration is yours in 2021! God is setting you straight for 2021. He is giving you a new and fresh vision and a strategy for this year and beyond. I declare over you that you are blessed to be a blessing. You continue to bless Him with your increase, and He will continue to give you more. You are trustworthy. You are honest. You are loyal. You are positioning yourself in great character to carry the capacity. Great things are coming to you. God is going to take you to the next level!
Join your faith with Him in February. If you have not started consecrating yourself with praying, fasting and giving, then start now. It is never too late to connect with God in our hearts. Let Him align everything—spirit, soul and body. When you position yourself to live an overcoming life with Him, you are set on the right course. God needs you on His team. He needs you to be strong. Your transition begins today.
