Today, as we prayed and talked, this is what God was speaking to my and Karen's heart: "Reset!"
It is time to reset everything.
We have been given a reprieve from the treadmill of life. Now we must decide to lean into the voice of God and develop a new normal! Now, we must rethink everything.
"And then, after your brief suffering, the God of all loving grace, who has called you to share in his eternal glory in Christ, will personally and powerfully restore you and make you stronger than ever. Yes, he will set you firmly in place and build you up" (1 Pet. 5:10, TPT).
Reset What You Considered
Prayer time – Get to know God in a deeper and more profound way! Go deep! Let this be your Psalm 42:6-7, "Deep calls out to deep" season. Pray the Lord's Prayer! Commune with God and He will show up. James 4:6 (MEV) says, "Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you!" Praise Him for already providing the antidote.
Family time – Use this time to get to know each other again! Listen more than you talk. Laugh more than you cry. Play together again. Most importantly, pray together again! Psalm 127:1 (ESV) says, "Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."
The valuable – Possessions and things of this world cannot compare to what God has in store for you. Store up treasure in heaven (Matt. 6:19-20). Sow into your church! Stay faithful!
Your purpose – It isn't about the stage or the crowd; it is about being His hands and feet! Rethink how you have done life. Remember, if the stage can seduce you, then it can also reduce you. Be confident in the fact that you are Christ's ambassador! (2 Cor. 5:20). Remember, Saul who became Paul disappeared for three years and came out as a new man, ready to change the world. Isolation redefined purpose.
Your success – Your value comes from your heavenly Father and not people, options or the plaudits of man. Maybe this is the season to rewrite your resume! Could this be the nudge from heaven that causes you to shift your job and profession? Maybe, it is time to realize that it is God who gives you the ability to create wealth (Deut. 8:18). He takes joy in your prosperity (Ps. 35:27).
Your wealth – He has got you. There is no bankruptcy sign in heaven. He is the great employer. He still knows the recipe to manna!
Your fellowship – We have one heart and one body in Christ! (Rom. 12:5). Let's come together! Forget politics! Forget things that do not matter. Let's spur each other on in good works (Heb. 10:24).
Our vision – Now is the time look through the eyes of God and not our own. Pick up the spiritual telescope and see that God has a plan for revival to hit the land! Write down your vision.
Your inheritance matters to God!
Let this be our promise: "[About God's faithfulness,] Yahweh says: "When the time of showing you favor has come, I will answer your heart's cry. I will help you in the day of salvation, for I have fixed my eyes on you. I have made you a covenant people to restore the land and to resettle families on forgotten inheritances" (Isa. 49:8, TPT).
Let's reset! Maybe after we reset, we will see the breakthrough!
