You have now Shifted into 5th – The Grace Gear!

Shifting is work! Anyone who has ever driven a “stick shift” knows! We must push the clutch, down-shift, shift up again, set the parking brake and do a whole lot of work just to get where we need to go.  The lower gears are basically for doing the “grunt work”… stopping, starting and just getting around.

However, the beauty of a stick shift is driving in the higher gears – especially 5th gear! In 5th gear we can accelerate and just cruise along! This gear is MADE for the highway! It is not just fast, enabling huge amounts of acceleration quickly, it’s smooth! Whereas the lower gears take a lot of work to go short distances, the higher gears are EFFORTLESS for the long haul! Once our vehicle is in 5th gear, we can just cruise for miles!

In prayer time with my husband, the Lord dropped a revelation into my spirit as Darryl prayed. I heard, “You have now shifted into 5th – the Grace Gear!”

This went off inside of me! I know that many, including me, have been “driving around” in the lower gears – 1st, 2nd and even 3rd – for a long time, perhaps even years.  But God! Over the last few seasons, He has been shifting us into increasingly higher gears, enabling us to go farther, faster. Now, with this most recent shift, many have been shifted into 5th gear – the Grace Gear!

This is the Grace Gear! 5th gear in any vehicle is so incredibly easy! We can just sit back and enjoy the ride! In the Grace Gear, we can allow God to be God and rest in Him! We can take our foot off the brake and put it exclusively on the accelerator.

But just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the glad tidings (the Gospel), so we speak not to please men but to please God, Who tests our hearts [expecting them to be approved],” (1 Thessalonians 2:4).

In the Grace Gear, not only are we operating in our God-given grace and anointing, we are also operating in trust – His trust! He trusts us to operate in this gear! He has trained us, raised us up and He has given us the green light. He has hit the “GO” button!  So GO!

This means that in the past, in those “lower gears”, we may have had some double mindedness (see James 1:8), doubt or trepidation about what the Lord has called us to. In the Grace Gear, in this accelerated mode of transportation, there is no time for that!

Many years ago I was a passenger on a motorcycle.  The driver had no inhibitions about traveling fast! In fact, as he screamed down the freeway at an incredible rate of speed, the telephone poles appeared as toothpicks. We were moving so fast that one came up so quickly after the next it almost appeared as a picket fence!

This is the Grace Gear! Just like on that motorcycle, the Grace Gear is fast! The Grace Gear is traveling at warp speed! What used to take years will now take only days, or perhaps even hours! At this rate of acceleration, we must simply trust God to be God, and take Him at His Word to do what only God can do!

“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding,” (Proverbs 3:5 AMPC).

Whether it is business or finances, relationships or ministry, we must trust God to trust us with what He is doing! If we will just listen and obey, then act quickly on what we hear, we will see amazing Grace in action! Simply move out of the way; do not try to control the outcome, and expect Supernatural results. You will see them in the Grace Gear!

It is time for us to move forward, quickly and obediently, in the Grace Gear! It is time for full speed ahead! Take your foot off the brake and place it fully and confidently on the accelerator! No more down-shifting! Go far and go fast in the Grace Gear!

Blessings at warp speed!

It’s Not Too Late! You Cannot Stop the Plans of God!

You haven’t “Missed It”! It’s not too late! You cannot stop the Plans of God!

Has God told you to go somewhere? Or to do something and you haven’t yet done it?  You haven’t “missed it”! It’s not too late! God has prepared an antidote for you!

Parallel of President Trump and King of Ninevah

President Trump is, in some ways, a parallel with the king of Ninevah.  The king of Ninevah – a heathen – heard the Word of the Lord from Jonah, listened to it and acted upon it. He took off his robe, a symbol of the kingdom of “self”, got off of his throne, sat down in ashes and repented.  Then in Jonah 1:8-9 he quoted scripture from Joel 2:

“But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth and let them cry mightily to God. Yes, let every one turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands.

Who can tell, God may turn and revoke His sentence against us [when we have met His terms], and turn away from His fierce anger so that we perish not.”

To me, this is remarkable – that a heathen, Assyrian king would spout scripture! How did he learn it? How would he know to quote it, other than he was moved by the Spirit of God to speak?

God showed me this morning that in some ways President Trump is like the king of Ninevah. President Trump was a heathen. Everyone knows it, because it has been well-documented.  However, he is now acting in a biblical manner; he is upholding every promise and commitment that he made to the American people during his campaign, and one by one is fulfilling each and every one.

I believe the Lord is using President Trump in the same way that He used the King of Ninevah – to save the nation by repenting and turning back to God. He is working toward having two, hand-picked, conservative Supreme Court justices who will sit in their position for LIFE both literally and figuratively! President Trump is turning our country back toward conservative, Biblically-based values…just as the king of Ninevah did in his time.

An entire nation was saved, and it all came at the hand of Jonah- even while he was in disobedience and running away from God! In the perfect timing of God, it all came to pass, exactly as the Lord wanted.

God told Jonah the first time to go to Ninevah and tell them to repent, yet some time passed between the initial instruction and the time he actually did it. There was at least three days in the belly of the fish; four or more passed including the time on the boat. It may even have been much longer than this since the Bible doesn’t specify the amount of time.

The point is this: Jonah’s rebellion did not stop God’s plan! It did not interfere with His timing.  God KNEW Jonah was going to be in rebellion; and yet, He still used him!  God knew the exact perfect timing that it would take for the King to be able to repent, hop down off the throne and take off his robe of “self” exaltation. In fact, Jonah’s rebellion may have been NECESSARY for the timing of the Lord to come into fruition.

JUST LIKE JONAH, YOU CANNOT STOP GOD’S PLAN! Your past, present or even future rebellion, inaction or unbelief cannot stop the plans of the Lord- and cannot stop them for your life!  Just like Jonah, God isn’t surprised when you go into rebellion…it’s not like He didn’t see it coming! He knows what you will do before you ever even do it. Believe this truth: You haven’t “MISSED IT”!  You are right on the mark, on the money and on time!

The Lord prepared an “antidote” for Jonah’s rebellion. Fret not! He has prepared one for yours, too!  For Jonah, “…he prepared and appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah,” (Jonah 1:17 AMPC). Jonah then spent three days in the belly of the giant fish. While in there, he had a change of heart and prayed the Word of God back to Him from the Psalms. Once he did, “…the Lord spoke to the fish and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land,” (Jonah 2:10 AMPC). Just when Jonah thought it was all over, when he was all used up, he was catapulted onto solid ground – upon the Rock, even!

Get ready to be catapulted! At that time, the Lord gave Jonah a second chance to do what he had already been told to do (see Jonah 3:1). God, being no respecter of persons, will do the same for you! Just like Jonah, you are being given another opportunity to fulfill the call of God on your life, and to complete your assignment with even greater power than ever! You are being catapulted forward!

Don’t listen to the enemy!  Please don’t think for a moment that you can alter God’s destiny in this earth realm.  On your best day ever you couldn’t help God – and on your worst day ever you couldn’t hurt Him! He knows exactly what you will do at every turn, with every opportunity.

You cannot stall God’s plans, and you have not delayed your own destiny! It’s not too late!  Your time is NOW!  The circumstances in your life have created the perfect storm of opportunity for you to overcome!  You are more than a conqueror! You are an overcomer!

Your future is now, so get out of the belly of the fish and get ready to be catapulted forward! Set your feet upon the Rock, and get to it!

Blessings in your now!
