Dare to Dream in 2014
The Spirit of The Lord would say “This is the year for dreams and visions. But not only will I release dreams and visions into my people as the Prophet Joel* declared so long ago, this is also a time for those I have placed in leadership positions to begin to dream big dreams. For this is the year that I am shifting and sifting the plans of men to align with My Design*” says The Lord.
“Remember the declaration of Habakkuk* in these days” says The Lord, “but do more than remember. Put the declaration into action and ‘write the vision down in big letters’ making it clear for those whom I have entrusted in your care. For too often” says the Lord “My leaders have spun yarns and tales but not made the vision clear for My people. So ‘Dare to Dream in 20-14′” declares the Lord “but be careful and attentive to My details and My Design. Make the vision clear and easy to read so that all who follow after Me know the direction I intend to go*”.
“It is true that in the past decade I have ‘poured my Spirit out’ and your ‘sons and daughters’ have prophesied as I declared through my Prophet Joel. But now is the time for My leaders to rise up and bring clarity to what at times has sounded like confusion with voices scampering for a place of prominence. This day I am bringing a clearer understanding of rank and order into the midst of My people. This day I am releasing an understanding of authority written about by Paul to My beloved in Ephesus*. Impostors have come and gone drawing attention to themselves but look closely and you will see only a ‘form of godliness without My power*’. Remember My Word” says the Lord, “you will know them by their fruit*”.
“So ‘Dare to Dream in 20-14′” declares the Lord “knowing I am raising up a people who will ‘Go into all the world preaching the Good News’ in the fullness and power of My Word* until the ‘Body of Christ is moving rhythmically and easily with each other, efficient and graceful in response to My Son, fully mature adults, fully developed within and without, fully alive like Christ*'”.
