Partner Letter Nº 18
Are you preparing yourself or ready for the grand reveal? One of the most dynamic manifestations of the glory of the Lord? God has been in readiness for you and is waiting on His Bride to arise. It's a new season! We are not only heading upon the hills of the fall season; we are approaching a glorious spiritual season of recovery from our past setbacks and falls.
Just like you will see the new colors changing in nature, the colors have changed in the heavenly realms. God has strategically shifted the guards, positioning His people in ranks and places that they once dreamed were possible.
You are not only my Shift Today Partner, but you are also God's Partner. He needs you for such a time as this. God is showing off in this new spiritual season.
He is showing off His glory as He is revealing Himself in creative ways through you. I see people inquiring of you like they did Jesus, "Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?" Can't you hear them now inquiring, "Was this not the timid one? Is not this the distressed financial one? Didn't they struggle with the thoughts of unworthiness? Are you telling me that their unsaved spouse and wayward children on fire for God?"
God is going to cause others to remember who you were and your struggles, so that they can see who you are with the promises of God revealed.
He wants you revealed to those who do not know Him, so this is why He allows you to experience trials and tribulations so that others can see how you triumph over the opposition. Your opposition had a purpose just like the cross of Jesus. It revealed God's righteousness, justice, and steadfast love. No matter what situations and people that were changing around you, He wanted to show you that He doesn't change.
God wanted you to remain in His nature, the nature that He created you to be. Your reborn spirit is your righteous Christlike nature, and it is holy, just like God. God created you in His image and likeness. Throughout this letter partner, the word "reveal" has been the running theme.
All creation is eagerly waiting for God to reveal who his children are.
The wait is over! God has revealed who His children are. He has chosen and called each of them by name. So I ask you once again, "Are you preparing yourself or ready to be God's great reveal?"
Are you convinced yet? The Bible says that you are in your inner man!
28 So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose. 29 For he knew all about us before we were born, and he destined us from the beginning to share the likeness of his son. This means the son is the oldest among a vast family of brothers and sisters who will become just like him.
We are becoming each day just like Him. As I shared last month Partner, it is for the sake of the anointing that you are becoming who God says you already are by the renewing of your mind. I believe the work of God is complete and that Christ is in you. Now is the time to share the likeness of His Son with the world.
To help you renew your mind, take advantage of our daily declarations of faith "iDecree" and weekly devotionals. You can access these resources on our site or our Shift Today App. As you meditate upon these resources and begin to walk out the likeness of Jesus Christ, you are convincing yourself that you are God's chosen and called.
Lastly, I hope you are enjoying and navigating with ease on our new Partner Portal. I love you Partner and thank you for your prayers, monthly partnership offerings, and friendship. We are stronger together!
Partner, I almost forgot, keep me in your prayers specifically for our new Shift Today Ministries Headquarters. We "need" our property and I am scouting the land and believing by faith that the next legacy partner letter that you receive, I will be writing to testify that this new location has been revealed.
Your Partner Revealed in Christ,
