2014-11-23 Give Thanks

The video is here

November and the entire year of 2014 has been a season of blessing and breakthrough. In spite of turmoil around the world, the Kingdom of God is moving forward in amazing ways. I’m thankful for God’s invitation into the Kingdom. He bought my ticket and He is the author of our breakthroughs. But, it is time to pull the curtain back and reveal some of His glory here on earth. Some great breakthroughs are occurring and we must lift our banners and express the gratitude that resides in our hearts.

Loss – Many have experienced loss, theft at the hand of the enemy. Even though there is no condemnation in the Kingdom we often feel personal shame being part of God’s family, yet still under the bondage of failure and the oppression of poverty. The pain and discouragement has been a difficult road, and I am reminded of this verse.

And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. 25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. 26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.  Joel 2:24-26 KJV

A new season – Something has happened in the spirit and although winter is just around the corner it feels like spring is here. I’m seeing it in the lives of my circle of friends as well as on a national and international level.

Outwardly – The dollar is easily the strongest currency in the world. The stock market just broke an all-time high. In spite of the doomsayers who prophesy the will of the devil, God is blessing America, and enemy strategies are failing on every front. It’s really amazing to be this vulnerable and this blessed!

Personally – My own business had its best week ever this last week. Five of my business friends are opening new businesses, expanding or seeing new opportunities and promotions come their way. Let me share one story. David is a teacher using the principles of the Heart Plan in his class, and helping a handful of teachers in his school connect with their own hearts. He’s been doing it quietly and faithfully for two years. This week he was invited to implement his ideas throughout schools in a larger portion of his state… and to get paid for it. He is mapping out a strategy to release the Kingdom in the education mountain that will impact teachers, students, parents and the community… all in a public school. The spiritual template / mandate he is running with, coupled with the wisdom he is using to practically implement it, can easily go viral and impact other states and nations. It has huge potential, and the sense of God blowing in these sails is clearly evident. He said “yes Lord.”

Intentional breakthrough – Your personal transition may not have arrived yet, but you can do some practical things to position yourself prophetically to receive it.

Great expectations – Miracles happen to people who expect them enough to look for them and prepare for them. In other words, we have to position ourselves before God to believe that they are coming and to work toward their fulfillment. Miracles and breakthroughs are far beyond our own strength… just as God’s power is far beyond ours. Yet, we have to do our part. There is a diligence in the realm of faith, preparation and work which precedes miracles that is easy to miss. God rewards that diligence – heartfelt belief that He will prevail, coupled with practical preparations (aka work). Here’s a quote from a friend, actually a business affiliate.

In my life, miracles started to happen when I stopped relying on them as a priority – they came when I learned wisdom, planning and work. Maria Lalik (Poland) www.Heartplan.eu

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Heb 11:6 NIV

Have a plan – Great expectations are not enough. Real belief means we’re working toward this miracle right now. We have a plan and we’re making progress toward this miracle every day. Miracles don’t just fall out of the sky. They are God accelerating faith that already understands His direction. He may quicken the direction, or not, but we are continually doing what the Father is doing in the meantime. Why? Because we believe it, enjoy it, and can taste the fruit of it in advance.

A Heart Plan – We use a Heart Plan to help individuals and businesses identify their Kingdom purpose, overcome heart boundaries that have held them back, and map out a course of action that includes cash flow. It’s really a process that facilitates hearing God and practical wisdom to translate a vision into a business plan. It’s really helpful to carry that entire strategy around on a single sheet of paper and give yourself permission to tweak that plan whenever God speaks or when we come up with a new idea or contact. I’m using a mind map format. Here is an example using Releasing Kings vision. You can do the same thing for the vision God has given you. It’s a tool that will help you “believe.”

This paragraph from my own heart plan is a summary of the direction on my life… its rocket fuel. God is saying something similar to many in this hour. He’s building His Kingdom and you’re invited. Plan on it.

I want to start a reformation, a grass-roots revival that is viral and contagious, premised on helping people touch their own heart’s desire in a way that releases Kings (prosperity, productivity, creativity, competence, and ministry) to build the Kingdom in all 7 mountains and bless the nations. I am a bridge between theology and practice, the church and Kingdom, priest and King. I am also an example of overcoming setbacks, creating wealth and converting money into ministry – we can be wise and anointed at the same time. We can have fun, make money, love people and build the Kingdom at the same time.

My next goal is to take this message into the mountains of business and with help from friends every other mountain as well. Perhaps another book is in order?

Personal note:

Clive Wilson is a friend who has known me for several years and is familiar with Releasing Kings, attended our conferences, etc. He suggested I look into Larry Napier’s work on Rediscovery of the Heart because it ties in with so much of our work at Releasing Kings. Clive is right, and I want to recommend that you take a look at it. I liked it so much that I became an affiliate http://rediscoveryoftheheart.com/johngarfield …haven’t been able to stop watching the 60 videos with a syllabus for $50. They are really good. Now Larry has an ebook out for $5, Releasing the Lion: Rediscovering the Right Brain Heart.

Thank you so much for this article. It continues to encourage me to do great things for God’s kingdom, and I appreciate you sharing the mapping strategy. It is hard to develop visuals to get started, but you have given a great example.
