You are being given the opportunity to create the life you desire in 2019. Why not begin to create a life that truly reflects what you desire?
As we enter into what is bound to be a year of unprecedented change and seismic shift within the Kingdom, I want to begin by first taking the time to wish you and yours a very happy and prosperous New Year. Your love, your prayers, and your support are truly what continue to make Identity Network into the prophetic voice it is, and I love and appreciate your valued friendship. In only a matter of days, at the time of this writing, my brand new book will be made available, entitled, Prayer: Think Without Ceasing. In what I truly believe to be one of the most transcendent books of its kind, I share the revelation given to me regarding how our very own thoughts form the unlimited and creative force behind our prayers. Also, in my newest podcast for Identity Network (click here to listen and subscribe), I recently shared teachings on how, by learning to harness the universal laws and principles established in the beginning, you and I can create much more effortlessly and with far less struggle the lives we truly envision.
As I share this with you, today, I feel within my spirit a great sense of anticipation as we look to the brand new year ahead. And I want to begin by asking you a very simple question: "Is what you're doing really working for you?" Only you can answer that question for yourself, my friend. What I mean to ask, even more so, though, is, "Are the beliefs you've been holding so tightly to truly bringing into your life the intended results?" Are you seeing the results of your beliefs?
Perhaps, like many, as you look back on 2018, you feel a sense of thankfulness that you were able to survive such a year of obstacle, hardship, and apparent struggle. But now, as we look toward to the year ahead, what if I were to tell you that 2019 doesn't have to be a year of more of the same? What if I told you that the struggle you experienced in 2018 was the direct result of old beliefs? In Mark 11:23, Jesus makes the emphatic declaration that we will have exactly what we believe. Another way to say this is that right now, in this very moment, your life is the result of exactly what you believe. And so, knowing this, I would ask, are your beliefs really working?
Expansion and Growth
Life within the Kingdom is all about expansion and growth – forward movement and momentum. Expansion, though, requires growth and scenery change. Life within the Kingdom is not only a life of abundance but, according to Jesus, it is a life of more abundance! How often have we held to old beliefs, old patterns, old traditions, and old "styles" of life and called it "faithfulness," simply because we thought that we had no choice in the matter? My friend, in 2019, allow yourself room to grow and to expand, and if your beliefs and thoughts aren't working to bring about a life you truly feel satisfied with, you have every right to change your beliefs and change your mind!
As I share within my newest book, You are the Game Changer, now available through Identity Network, you have more than 60,000 opportunities a day to re-create your life. That is to say, you have more than 60,000 different thoughts, which flood your mind each day and every passing thought is an opportunity to re-create your life into one that truly satisfies. In this New Year, resolve to give up beliefs that are no longer serving you. Refuse to hold onto the old just because, well, that's what you're "supposed" to do. Having been endued with all the power of the Creator, you and I are solely responsible for the flow of our lives within this earthly realm, and we create based upon our thoughts, our beliefs, and from our perspectives. If you find that the scenery has not changed, it isn't a sign of your "faithfulness" to your beliefs; it's a sign you aren't going anywhere! For far too long, religion has told the erroneous lie that if we simply hold onto our beliefs without question then we will reap the rewards of our faith. But the truth of the matter, my friend, is that, in this brand new year, to continue to hold to mindsets, patterns, and beliefs that are no longer working, hoping that they will somehow "pay off" is not faithfulness; it's foolishness. The Book of James tells us that faith without works – faith that doesn't lead to movement – is really no faith at all. This year, determine in your mind that you will allow yourself freedom and permission to grow!
The realm of the Kingdom is one of limitless potential, but is also a realm of thought and intention. This is why the Book of Proverbs declares that as we think, so are we. In other words, this year – and every year – you're going to get exactly what you think, you're going to see exactly what you believe, and you're going to experience the results of every belief. Rather than looking for "demons" to fight, rather than seeking strongholds to cast down and "rebuke," and rather than waging war in the heavens, why not begin to see, finally, that the war has always been the war you've been waging within your own mind because of fear and self-doubt? As a powerful spirit being, possessing all the power of the Godhead bodily, just as Jesus, you deserve more credit than you've given yourself. The reason you've experienced such hardship and such struggle is because you've chosen to see and to "believe" that struggle is a necessary evil of life. It isn't! Having the mind of Christ, this reality – the reality of the natural, physical world, doesn't have to be your reality! You determine your reality based upon your thoughts. Furthermore, even more importantly, you determine your reality by the principles and the divine laws you choose to recognize and embrace. When you begin to see that everything operates according to universal laws and principles and that with your own beliefs and thoughts you are attracting into your life exactly what you believe, you can finally become more freed from the struggle, from the pointless, religious wars, and from the self-doubt and limiting belief.
This year, in 2019, I promise you that if you will put as much focus into what you do want and less desire into what you don't, surely you will possess the land of abundance!
