Atomic Activation

It is a New Year! As my devotional this morning said, "It is time to leave the past behind. It is time to embrace the inheritance I have set aside for you from the foundations of this earth. Receive now a new supernatural impartation of My love and breathe in deeply the fresh wind of My Spirit. It is yours for the asking. It is yours for the taking. Run with the vision," says the Lord. "Run with the vision and never stop running."

I love that! "Run with the vision...Run with the vision and never stop running." That phrase just gets me so excited about all the things that God has in store for us this year!

It has been interesting to Aaron and I to watch how "different" the parking lot at the YMCA has looked over the past couple of weeks. It is more full than ever now! We came to the conclusion of..."Ah, New Year's resolutions being activated(imagine a lightbulb popping into our heads at that moment as to why there were so many cars and why it was that we couldn't park closer to the door...LOL...I have to laugh because we were concerned about having to walk further to our car, even though we were there to go work out)."

Many have made or will make resolutions at the beginning of this year to do this, or that and it seems like throughout the year, we lose the vision of what we have "cast" out there to do. I think many times we don't "soak" ourselves on a daily basis of the visions, goals, and/or resolutions that we have set out to accomplish. Many times we get stagnant and procrastinate, I suppose for many reasons whether that be due to our lack of vision, fear, hopelessness, or the feeling that we will never attain God's will for our life and the goals we have set before ourselves.

But the great part of all that is that you already have a vision! Proverbs 29:18 begins by saying, "Where there is no vision, the people perish..." Therefore, if you already have that vision, pat yourself on the back, you're halfway there...and if you don't, pray that God births one in you. Have something that motivates and atomically activates you this year to grow and move to the next level in life. God has called us to be a people of vision, power, might and love. Take on challenges that God sets forth in front of you. This will help move you to the next level. Remember to continually "soak" yourself in this vision. Write it down...make it visual for yourself...keep it in front of you! Ask God to help bring it to the forefront of your thoughts on a regular basis. Don't waste this year away...have faith and a new hope that you will accomplish your goals this year. Always remember what 1 Chronicles 28:20 says,"Then David continued, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. He will see to it that all the work related to the Temple of the Lord is finished correctly."

God is always there for when you are discouraged or feeling a lack of His face...He is there for you! Activate and RUN with the vision...Run and never stop running.
