As a new calendar year approaches, I always get excited to hear a fresh word and receive fresh vision from the Lord for my life, ministry and for the body of Christ. At the end of 2017, I was so excited for 2018. As I was really getting excited for 2018, the Lord even told me then, "2018 is going to be a really good year for My children, but when 2019 gets here, it's going to be even better." Many of you have been building a foundation in 2018, but you are about to experience the glory at a greater level in 2019.
Over the past week, the Lord has been speaking numerous words to me about getting ready for the next season. I believe the first 90 days of 2019 are going to be fast-paced. I believe the first 90 days will be days of acceleration. The Lord shared with me that in this next season coming up, we do not need to take steps towards the Lord, but instead leaps towards the Lord. This is going to be a very fast-paced season for many, a season full of acceleration and increase. These increases will not just be in one area of your life but many areas. It is important that we prepare for what God is going to do in 2019 now, so that we will be ready as the new year comes!
The Lord has been speaking this to me so strongly that 2019 is the year where we need to do the God things, not just the good things. Before 2019 gets here, set apart some time and really focus in on the Lord and hear from Him about what He has for you in 2019. You may need to look back at the prophetic words you've received that haven't come to pass yet. Read and listen to those prophetic words because the Lord is going to release the weight of His glory and presence into your life now more than ever before.
In the first 90 days of 2019, if everything goes as planned, we will have two books published, about five e-courses, and probably four or five e-books out. We're on a schedule and have prepared so that we can release these resources within the first 90 days. What has God called you to do in 2019? I encourage you: Go on a fast and hear from God. This is going to be a time where you are going to start living your God-given dreams and put your hands to the plow and do everything God has called you to do. Numerous people have stretched their faith and seen in the supernatural; now the people of God are about to see those things manifested in the natural. Your faith and fulfillment of prophetic words are about to manifest right before our eyes.
Fear and insecurity cannot go with you into 2019. You have to go forth as a son or a daughter of God and take 2019 by force. It is critical for you to hit the ground running as we enter 2019. Get ready, my friends, because the first 90 days of 2019 will be fast-paced and a time of accelerated glory!
