Preparing for Big and Bold Part 2 – Ps John Bendixen
No matter what the time of day, no matter what the time of week, no matter which week in the year, no matter what time of the year, this is the time, where I am flowing with God. At this time of the year, I am in the order of God and not just doing whatever I want to do; I am in the order of God.
Whatever I am doing, I don’t forget who I really am. I am not the person that wants to feed my physical body – that is not the person who I am. I am not the person that wants to do whatever my body wants to do, whatever my soul wants to do – that is not who I am. I am a new creation and new creature in Christ Jesus. That spirit creature that’s inside of me, that new creation, that Jesus, that Holy Spirit in me, always wants me, no matter which day, time of year it is, always wants me to be free, always wants me to be in liberty.
The Holy Spirit, the Jesus in me, always wants me to be connected meaningfully with the Father, with the Word of God, with the presence of the Holy Spirit – whatever I’m doing. I make sure that I feed my inner man. I make sure that first thing in the morning when I wake up before I do anything, I, for a moment, take time to connect with Jesus.
I thank Him that I’m alive, thank Him for the time that I’m in and even though things may be difficult, I say, “Lord, I’m thankful that You’re my Lord, You’re my Saviour and everything that You’ve got planned for me will come to pass eventually, even though it might not feel like it right now.”
I don’t forget who I really am. I really am a spirit being, I really have someone that’s inside me that’s really powerful and I have so much power, that if my natural man, if I give my natural man permission to speak loudly to me, at this time, in this season, I still have great power inside of me to dominate and control what seems to be uncontrollable. I don’t let circumstances stop me and hinder me from letting my spirit man have communion with God.
I take time to meditate on the Word of God. I take time to be free in my thinking and my spirit man and in the things that God has got for me. I take the time to be free in that space because in that freedom, God speaks to me.
This time of the year is an opportunity for me to have the Holy Spirit speak to me. The more I connect with God earlier in the day, especially in these kinds of timeouts, God speaks to me through the day and He shows me things, new things, wonderful things, that are possible in my world.
11This perfectly wise plan was destined from eternal ages and fulfilled completely in our Lord Jesus Christ so that now 12 we have boldness through him, and free access as kings before the Father (Ephesians 3:11-12 TPT). I have boldness through Him, and I have free access as a king before the Father because of my Lord, Jesus Christ.
2021 – “I want you to be bold and I want you to go big.” I have this faithful Lord and Saviour – I know He is faithful to me and I have confidence that I have free access, boldness that has come to me because of the Word of the Lord; I behave as a king.
I go to the King of kings, with the spirit and the attitude of a king.
I go where I want, and I order and I command what I want because I have boldness and confidence that in the kingdom, I am the king of the kingdom.
I have access to everything that is in the kingdom. There is no limited access anywhere for me. I am allowed anywhere and everywhere because I am the king of the kingdom. “We have boldness through Him.” Who Him? He is King of kings; He is Lord of lords, Jesus. I have boldness through Him and free access as a king before the Father.
The Father’s Kingdom is accessible to me – anytime, anyplace, anywhere, and there is nothing in His Kingdom, in His resource base that doesn’t belong to me that I can’t access. I have confidence and boldness, because of who I am in Him. This is a wonderful position to be in.
35So don’t lose your bold, courageous faith for you are destined for a great reward! Because of my bold, courageous faith, I am destined for a great reward. 36You need the strength of endurance to reveal the poetry of God’s will and then you receive the promise in full. (Hebrews 10:35-36 TPT).
I receive the promise in full – I continue to be bold, I have a lot of courage, and I have the spirit of, “I can be bold, I can be very courageous, I can be strong because I can behave as a king. I have full access, as though I were a king because I have the spirit of the King inside of me. I have because I belong in the kingdom of God. I am in the kingdom of God, and because I am in the kingdom of God, and God is my Father through Jesus, the faithful Lord and Saviour of my life, because of that, I can behave as though I have free access to everything.”
I continue to make Jesus the centre of everything I do. He’s the centre of my thought pattern in the beginning of the day, then while I’m walking around I continue, to those around me, to be thankful and be grateful and express the goodness of God in my life.
I express my gratitude. I express thankfulness. I express all of the good things that God is to me in my life. I express the blessing of God in my life.
As I contemplate, meditate and have this time, I speak words of life. I meditate on the Words of Life. I speak good things about my future. I speak good things to others about what God is doing and what good things are about to happen to me.
2021 is going to be a year that is blessed and full of power, full of glory, and full of good things for me in 2021.
