2022 PHRASE “Go! This is new.”

For the last 5 years, I prayed over a word or phrase to focus on for the year. This keeps me grounded in God’s word and it allows me to apply this word to my life. I come out a better man every year. ⁣

My 2022 phrase is: “Go, this is new.” On this path, Elohim (The Strong Creator God) is creating great new things for me to walk in. I will continue to be a blessing to everyone I cross paths with. Pray to Jesus for your 2022 word/phrase and ask Him to give you the heart and spirit to live it out!

Week 1 – Day 1 to 7

Day 1: Go! This is new.

“But Noah found favor with the Lord.”
Genesis 6:8

“This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, the only blameless person living on earth at the time, and he walked in close fellowship with God.”
Genesis 6:9

““Build a large boat from cypress wood and waterproof it with tar, inside and out. Then construct decks and stalls throughout its interior.”
Genesis 6:14

“So Noah did everything exactly as God had commanded him.”
Genesis 6:22

God was about to take Noah through something that had never been done before. When we look at Noah’s character and actions, we see why he was chosen for what God was about to do through him. As we start 2022, I know that God is doing something new in me. I pray that I walk in fellowship with Him and do exactly what He tells me to do.

Day 2: Go! This is new.

“When everything was ready, the Lord said to Noah, “Go into the boat with all your family, for among all the people of the earth, I can see that you alone are righteous.”
Genesis 7:1

Ready: Prepared; fitted; furnished with what is necessary

“So Noah did everything exactly as God had commanded him.”
Genesis 6:22

God sent Noah into the boat when everything was ready. Keep in mind that Noah didn’t have a boat sitting around. God instructed him to build it. Noah did everything exactly how God commanded him. The new thing that God is doing in our lives will come through the faith and the work that we put in. Don’t expect something great to just pop up if there is no faith and work.

Day 3: Go! This is new.

“After Lot had separated from him, the Lord said to Abram, “Look from the place where you are. Look north and south, east and west, for I will give you and your offspring forever all the land that you see.”
Genesis 13:14-15

“I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust of the earth, then your offspring could be counted. Get up and walk around the land, through its length and width, for I will give it to you.” So Abram moved his tent and went to live near the oaks of Mamre at Hebron, where he built an altar to the Lord.”
Genesis 13:16-18

The Lord told Abram that He (The Lord) was giving him the land. God told Abram to “look”, “get up” and “walk around the land”. Today, ask the Lord, “What do You need me to do to receive what You are giving me?”

Day 4: Go! This is new.

“When Abram was 99 years old, the Lord appeared to him, saying, “I am God Almighty. Live in My presence and be blameless.”
Genesis 17:1

“I will establish My covenant between Me and you, and I will multiply you greatly.””
Genesis 17:2

God revealed Himself to Abram as El Shaddai (Lord God Almighty). The covenant was between God and Abram, but the effects would go beyond Abram. God has called me to do specific things that go beyond just me. My principles of connecting, learning, teaching, serving, and loving are all rooted in my faith in Jesus. This is what I mean when I say, “It is bigger than me.”

Day 5: Go! This is new.

“I will bless her, and indeed I will give you a son by her. Then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.””
Genesis 17:16

“Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Will a child be born to a man a hundred years old? And will Sarah, who is ninety years old, give birth to a child?””
Genesis 17:17

Abraham laughed because his focus was on the reality of the situation, which was their age. Reality cannot be dismissed. Instead, the reality is the reason why I have learned to operate by faith. God’s promise overrides reality. I’ve seen this. I continue to see it. I am an example of it. Ask God to allow you to have faith that goes beyond the reality of your situation.

Day 6: Go! This is new.

“Abraham named the place Yahweh-Yireh (which means “the Lord will provide”). To this day, people still use that name as a proverb: “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.””
Genesis 22:14

“His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.”
2 Peter 1:3

Yahweh-Yireh / Jehovah Jireh (The Lord will provide). His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness. If He doesn’t provide “it” or make a way for us to get “it”, we don’t need it. I can speak directly to this.

Day 7: Go! This is new.

“Then Laban and Bethuel replied, “The Lord has obviously brought you here, so there is nothing we can say.”
Genesis 24:50

“They replied, “We can plainly see that the Lord is with you. So we want to enter into a sworn treaty with you. Let’s make a covenant.”
Genesis 26:28

When it’s obvious and plain that the Lord is working in our lives, there is no other proof needed from us. We must continue and work to exemplify our: Faith, Love, Service, & Humility.

Week 2 – Day 8 to 14

Day 8: Go! This is new.

“Then the Lord said to Jacob, “Return to the land of your father and grandfather and to your relatives there, and I will be with you.””
Genesis 31:3

“When the man saw that He could not defeat him, He struck Jacob’s hip socket as they wrestled and dislocated his hip. Then He said to Jacob, “Let Me go, for it is daybreak.” But Jacob said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me.” “What is your name? ” the man asked. “Jacob,” he replied. “Your name will no longer be Jacob,” He said. “It will be Israel because you have struggled with God and with men and have prevailed.””
Genesis 32:25-28

Sometimes God will send us back to where we started with a different name, role, and responsibility. This change doesn’t happen until we are honest with the Lord. He may break us before He blesses us. Once this happens, we will no longer be held captive by our former way of thinking and operating. We can now be who God says that we are!

Day 9: Go! This is new.

“So when Joseph arrived, his brothers ripped off the beautiful robe he was wearing. Then they grabbed him and threw him into the cistern. Now the cistern was empty; there was no water in it.”
Genesis 37:23-24

Let’s pay attention to the details in Scripture. The cistern was empty. If water would have been in there, Joseph would likely have drowned. We can be in a rough situation and a hopeful situation at the same time, but we may not see it that way in the moment.

Day 10: Go! This is new.

“The Lord was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master.”
Genesis 39:2

“Potiphar noticed this and realized that the Lord was with Joseph, giving him success in everything he did.”
Genesis 39:3

When we learn Jesus’ name as Immanuel, this reveals His character of “God is with us.” No matter where we are in life, we must understand that God is with us. Call on His name. When God is with us, we will succeed.

Day 11: Go! This is new.

“And please remember me and do me a favor when things go well for you. Mention me to Pharaoh, so he might let me out of this place.”
Genesis 40:14

“Pharaoh’s chief cup-bearer, however, forgot all about Joseph, never giving him another thought.”
Genesis 40:23

“Pharaoh sent for Joseph at once, and he was quickly brought from the prison. After he shaved and changed his clothes, he went in and stood before Pharaoh. Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I had a dream last night, and no one here can tell me what it means. But I have heard that when you hear about a dream you can interpret it.””
Genesis 41:14-15

““It is beyond my power to do this,” Joseph replied. “But God can tell you what it means and set you at ease.””
Genesis 41:16

When the Lord is ready for our gifts to be revealed to the world, we will know that it is Him who positions us and it is His power working in us.

Day 12: Go! This is new.

“Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Please, come near me,” and they came near. “I am Joseph, your brother,” he said, “the one you sold into Egypt.”
Genesis 45:4

“And now don’t be worried or angry with yourselves for selling me here, because God sent me ahead of you to preserve life.”
Genesis 45:5

““For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways.” This is the Lord’s declaration. “For as heaven is higher than earth, so My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Isaiah 55:8-9

The journey to get where God is sending us may not be understood while we are going through the process. Learning the Lord’s names and character will help us each step of the way. Immanuel (God is with us) and Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is there). He is with us as we walk and He is wherever He is sending us.

Day 13: Go! This is new.

“Meanwhile, Moses was shepherding the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian. He led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.”
Exodus 3:1

“Then the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire within a bush. As Moses looked, he saw that the bush was on fire but was not consumed.”
Exodus 3:2

“So Moses thought: I must go over and look at this remarkable sight. Why isn’t the bush burning up?”
Exodus 3:3

What Moses was looking at was beyond human logic. This is what made him go over and look at the bush. When he looked at the bush he wondered, “Why isn’t the bush burning up?” Before God allowed me to understand what He was doing through me, I experienced a few moments that were beyond my human understanding. This is when I knew that it was Him leading me to His purpose for my life.

Day 14: Go! This is new.

“Moses said, “Please, Lord, send someone else.””
Exodus 4:13

“Then the Lord’s anger burned against Moses, and He said, “Isn’t Aaron the Levite your brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, he is on his way now to meet you. He will rejoice when he sees you.”
Exodus 4:14

“So Moses and Aaron did this; they did just as the Lord commanded them.”
Exodus 7:6

“The Israelites traveled from Rameses to Succoth, about 600,000 soldiers on foot, besides their families.”
Exodus 12:37

“The time that the Israelites lived in Egypt was 430 years.”
Exodus 12:40

Moses started by asking God to send someone else. Later, he became a vessel, with Aaron, and freed over 600,000

Week 3 – Day 15 to 21

Day 15: Go! This is new.

“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to Me? Tell the sons of Israel to go forward.”

Exodus 14:15

When the Israelites were in the wilderness they saw it as “their grave” when in fact God was making it their way out. Remember in Exodus 6 The LORD revealed Himself to Moses as Yahweh (The Relational God). The Lord asked Moses a question that didn’t require an answer simply because of Who asked it. Yahweh commanded Moses to tell the Israelites to go forward.

Think about this & say it…“I’m not stuck. Yahweh is turning the obstacle into an opportunity. I must have faith in the LORD and move forward.“

Day 16: Go! This is new.

“When Israel saw the great power which the Lord had used against the Egyptians, the people feared the Lord, and they believed in the Lord and in His servant Moses.”

Exodus 14:31

“So the people grumbled at Moses, saying, “What are we to drink?””

Exodus 15:24

“But the whole congregation of the sons of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness.”

Exodus 16:2

“So Moses and Aaron said to all the sons of Israel, “At evening you will know that the Lord has brought you out of the land of Egypt; and in the morning you will see the glory of the Lord, for He hears your grumblings against the Lord; and what are we, that you grumble against us?””

Exodus 16:6-7

When the people saw what God did, they were good. The moment they couldn’t see how they would drink or eat, they complained. When we consistently complain, there is a deeper issue within us. The root issue is usually our lack of faith and/or the feeling of entitlement.

Day 17: Go! This is new.

“So it came about, when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed; but when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed.”

Exodus 17:11

“And Moses’ hands were heavy. So they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other. So his hands were steady until the sun set.”

Exodus 17:12

“And Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.”

Exodus 17:13

In that moment, Moses needed Aaron and Hur to help hold his hands up. Here is a message we all need to hear. “God has planted people in our life to support us when we are physically unable to continue. We must let them help us. We can’t let our ego tell us that we don’t need help. Later, we will be the support that they need.”

Day 18: Go! This is new.

“You will surely wear out, both yourself and these people who are with you, because the task is too heavy for you; you cannot do it alone.”

Exodus 18:18

“Now listen to me: I will give you counsel, and God be with you. You be the people’s representative before God, and you bring the disputes to God,”

Exodus 18:19

“If you do this thing and God so commands you, then you will be able to endure, and all these people also will go to their places in peace.””

Exodus 18:23

“Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.”

Galatians 6:2

When God gives us our life purpose, other people’s life purpose will combine with ours so that we can ultimately live out the Lord’s Kingdom agenda. We aren’t designed to do life alone.

Day 19: Go! This is new.

“Moses alone is to approach the Lord, but the others are not to approach, and the people are not to go up with him.””

Exodus 24:2

“Moses entered the cloud as he went up the mountain, and he remained on the mountain 40 days and 40 nights.”

Exodus 24:18

“Be careful to make them according to the pattern you have been shown on the mountain.”

Exodus 25:40

Moses went up the mountain, in solitude with Yahweh, so that he could get the vision from Him. Once we get the vision from the Lord, we can communicate it to who needs to hear it and start the mission of doing what He has called us to do.

Day 20: Go! This is new.

“Construct the altar with boards so that it is hollow. They are to make it just as it was shown to you on the mountain.”

Exodus 27:8

“You are to instruct all the skilled craftsmen, whom I have filled with a spirit of wisdom, to make Aaron’s garments for consecrating him to serve Me as priest.”

Exodus 28:3

Moses had the blueprint directly from Yahweh. He was required to communicate the vision and be obedient to what God had told him. God had already put wisdom in people to do this work. I have learned this,” When the Lord is calling us to do something, He will give us the vision and the wisdom to do it, but we have to choose to be obedient and apply action to get it done.”

Day 21: Go! This is new.

“Moses entered the cloud as he went up the mountain, and he remained on the mountain 40 days and 40 nights.”

Exodus 24:18

“When the people saw that Moses delayed in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said to him, “Come, make us a god who will go before us because this Moses, the man who brought us up from the land of Egypt — we don’t know what has happened to him! ”
Exodus 32:1

“The Lord spoke to Moses: “Go down at once! For your people you brought up from the land of Egypt have acted corruptly. They have quickly turned from the way I commanded them; they have made for themselves an image of a calf. They have bowed down to it, sacrificed to it, and said, ‘Israel, this is your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt.’ ””

Exodus 32:7-8

God was giving Moses instructions for the Israelites, but their impatience made them act improper. We must be patient and wait on the Lord. When we follow His instructions we will have life. Following our own way will lead us down a dark road.

Week 4 – Day 22 to 28

Day 22: Go! This is new.

“Moses then said to the Israelites: “Look, the Lord has appointed by name Bezalel son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.”

Exodus 35:30

“He has filled him with God’s Spirit, with wisdom, understanding, and ability in every kind of craft”

Exodus 35:31

“He has also given both him and Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, the ability to teach others.”

Exodus 35:34

God gave them: His Spirit, wisdom, understanding, and ability. He also gave them the ability to teach others. Everything that God has allowed me to do, I aspire to teach. Why?

1. I know that He gave it to me.

2. His purpose for my life is bigger than me.

3. The person who I teach will be able to reach people who I’m not able to reach.

No one can steal our God-given purpose. When we refuse to share our purpose is when it diminishes. Ask yourself, “What has God given me?” “Who do I need to teach?”

Day 23: Go! This is new.

“The Israelites had done all the work according to everything the Lord had commanded Moses.”

Exodus 39:42

“Moses inspected all the work they had accomplished. They had done just as the Lord commanded. Then Moses blessed them.”

Exodus 39:43

The blessing comes after we are obedient to the Lord’s instructions.

Day 24: Go! This is new.

“Season all your grain offerings with salt to remind you of God’s eternal covenant. Never forget to add salt to your grain offerings.”

Leviticus 2:13

“Your speech should always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you should answer each person.”

Colossians 4:6

In Leviticus, seasoning with salt is a reminder of God’s eternal covenant. In Colossians, seasoning with salt speaks to the way our speech should be! Salt is both a flavor enhancer and preservative.

Day 25: Go! This is new.

““Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. This is how you are to deal with those who sin unintentionally by doing anything that violates one of the Lord’s commands.”

Leviticus 4:2

““If the entire Israelite community sins by violating one of the Lord’s commands, but the people don’t realize it, they are still guilty.”

Leviticus 4:13

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.”

Psalms 139:23-24

We can be wrong without knowing that we are wrong. This is why we must ask the Lord to examine us and set us straight on His path.

Day 26: Go! This is new.

““When you become aware of your guilt in any of these ways, you must confess your sin.”

Leviticus 5:5

Aware: Apprised; informed; cognizant; conscious;

There has to be action, in alignment with the Lord’s instructions, after we become aware. This will move us forward along our life journey.

Day 27: Go! This is new.

“So Moses did as the Lord commanded him, and the community assembled at the entrance to the tent of meeting. Moses said to them, “This is what the Lord has commanded to be done.””

Leviticus 8:4-5

“Now go! I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say.””

Exodus 4:12

God gave Moses instructions for freeing the Israelites from Pharaoh’s rule. Once this process was done, He gave Moses instructions on how to effective lead the people in their new life. When God says He is with us, we can 100% trust His word. We just have to follow the instructions that He is giving us. This is often times when we drop the ball. If we follow His instructions, we can expect His results!

Day 28: Go! This is new.

“And you must teach the Israelites all the decrees that the Lord has given them through Moses.””

Leviticus 10:11

“The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.”

Psalms 19:7

Decree: In theology, predetermined purpose of God

We much teach and apply what God has given us!

His instructions = perfect = reviving soul

His decrees = trustworthy = making wise the simple

Week 5 – Day 29 to 35

Day 29: Go! This is new

“for the life of the body is in its blood. I have given you the blood on the altar to purify you, making you right with the Lord. It is the blood, given in exchange for a life, that makes purification possible.”
Leviticus 17:11

“The one who eats My flesh and drinks My blood lives in Me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me.”
John 6:56-57

When Jesus is our Source, we will live because of Him.

Day 30: Go! This is new.

“The Lord spoke to Moses: “Speak to the entire Israelite community and tell them: Be holy because I, Yahweh your God, am holy.”
Leviticus 19:1-2

“Therefore, with your minds ready for action, be serious and set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
1 Peter 1:13

“As obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires of your former ignorance.”
1 Peter 1:14

“But as the One who called you is holy, you also are to be holy in all your conduct; for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy.”
1 Peter 1:15-16

Be holy in ALL of our conduct. We must have the Spirit of the Lord in us to be who He has called us to be.

Day 31: Go! This is new.

““When you come into the land and plant any kind of tree for food, you are to consider the fruit forbidden. It will be forbidden to you for three years; it is not to be eaten.”
Leviticus 19:23

“In the fourth year all its fruit must be consecrated as a praise offering to the Lord.”

Leviticus 19:24

“But in the fifth year you may eat its fruit. In this way its yield will increase for you; I am Yahweh your God.”

Leviticus 19:25

Yahweh’s process is how the yield increases.

Day 32: Go! This is new.

“Consecrate yourselves and be holy, for I am Yahweh your God. Keep My statutes and do them; I am Yahweh who sets you apart.”

Leviticus 20:7-8

“Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.”

John 17:17

 When we apply the Lord’s truth, we get the results of His truth!

Day 33: Go! This is new.

““Work may be done for six days, but on the seventh day there must be a Sabbath of complete rest, a sacred assembly. You are not to do any work; it is a Sabbath to the Lord wherever you live.”

Leviticus 23:3

 Early in my life I had this mindset of “grind” to me this was work hard day and night with minimal sleep. Back then I didn’t understand what “purpose” was. Now, I am living God’s purpose for my life. Now, I go to be early and I wake up early. When we commit to doing it God’s way, we can get our rest and wake up fully restored to live His purpose for our lives.

Get you some rest!

Day 34: Go! This is new.

““You are to keep My statutes and ordinances and carefully observe them, so that you may live securely in the land. Then the land will yield its fruit, so that you can eat, be satisfied, and live securely in the land.”

Leviticus 25:18-19

“If you wonder: ‘What will we eat in the seventh year if we don’t sow or gather our produce? ’”

Leviticus 25:20

“I will appoint My blessing for you in the sixth year, so that it will produce a crop sufficient for three years. When you sow in the eighth year, you will be eating from the previous harvest. You will be eating this until the ninth year when its harvest comes in.”

Leviticus 25:21-22

God has it already worked out, we have to commit to Him and His process!

Day 35: Go! This is new.

“On the day the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, He said to him, “I am Yahweh; tell Pharaoh king of Egypt everything I am telling you.””

Exodus 6:28-29

“But Moses replied in the Lord’s presence, “Since I am such a poor speaker, how will Pharaoh listen to me? ””

Exodus 6:30

“So Moses and Aaron did this; they did just as the Lord commanded them.”

Exodus 7:6

“These are the Israelites registered by their ancestral houses. The total number in the camps by their military divisions is 603,550.”

Numbers 2:32

Moses had to deal with his internal perception of himself before he committed to what God was calling him to do. When he committed to God, he was able to walk in His purpose. There will be a time in life when we will come face to face with who we really are. Then we will be able to be who God is calling us to be. It’s tough, but it’s necessary.

Week 6 – Day 36 to 42

Day 36: Go! This is new.

“All the men between thirty and fifty years of age who were eligible for service in the Tabernacle and for its transportation numbered 8,580.”

Numbers 4:47-48

“When their names were recorded, as the Lord had commanded through Moses, each man was assigned his task and told what to carry. And so the registration was completed, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.”

Numbers 4:49

Each of us has a role and responsibility. Fulfilling our responsibilities, based on our roles, is our service to the Lord. No act of service is insignificant.

Day 37: Go! This is new.

“The Lord said to Moses, “Give Aaron the following instructions: When you set up the seven lamps in the lampstand, place them so their light shines forward in front of the lampstand.” So Aaron did this. He set up the seven lamps so they reflected their light forward, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.”

Numbers 8:1-3

“Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.”

Psalms 119:105

God’s word = lamp to guide my feet & a light for my path
Lamp = shines its light forward
If God’s word is the lamp that shines it’s light forward, we will be able to move forward when we apply His word because we can see! This is what it means to progress along the path!

Day 38: Go! This is new.

“On the day the Tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered it. But from evening until morning the cloud over the Tabernacle looked like a pillar of fire. This was the regular pattern—at night the cloud that covered the Tabernacle had the appearance of fire.”

Numbers 9:15-16

“Whenever the cloud lifted from over the sacred tent, the people of Israel would break camp and follow it. And wherever the cloud settled, the people of Israel would set up camp. In this way, they traveled and camped at the Lord’s command wherever he told them to go. Then they remained in their camp as long as the cloud stayed over the Tabernacle.”

Numbers 9:17-18

“Whenever” and “Wherever”

No matter when it is or where is it, we must obey the Lord’s commands. This is how we will be aligned and positioned for His purpose.

Day 39: Go! This is new.

“So Moses asked the Lord, “Why have You brought such trouble on Your servant? Why are You angry with me, and why do You burden me with all these people?”

Numbers 11:11

“I can’t carry all these people by myself. They are too much for me. If You are going to treat me like this, please kill me right now. If You are pleased with me, don’t let me see my misery anymore.””

Numbers 11:14-15

“The Lord answered Moses, “Bring Me 70 men from Israel known to you as elders and officers of the people. Take them to the tent of meeting and have them stand there with you. Then I will come down and speak with you there. I will take some of the Spirit who is on you and put the Spirit on them. They will help you bear the burden of the people, so that you do not have to bear it by yourself.”

Numbers 11:16-17

Sometimes our purpose can seem heavy because of the responsibility that comes with our role, as servant of the Lord. We can take our authentic prayers to the Lord. Don’t quit on your purpose.

Day 40: Go! This is new.

“The Lord spoke to Moses: “Send men to scout out the land of Canaan I am giving to the Israelites. Send one man who is a leader among them from each of their ancestral tribes.””

Numbers 13:1-2

“So they gave a negative report to the Israelites about the land they had scouted: “The land we passed through to explore is one that devours its inhabitants, and all the people we saw in it are men of great size.”

Numbers 13:32

“Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who scouted out the land, tore their clothes and said to the entire Israelite community: “The land we passed through and explored is an extremely good land. If the Lord is pleased with us, He will bring us into this land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and give it to us.”

Numbers 14:6-8

10/12 (~83%) of the men gave a negative report. 2/12 (~17%) of the men (Caleb & Joshua) said the land was extremely good. Caleb and Joshua put their faith in God. The other men were focusing on what their eyes saw. To do what God is calling us to do, we must have faith beyond our reality.

Day 41: Go! This is new.

“Be sure to give to the Lord the best portions of the gifts given to you.”

Numbers 18:29

“For what gives you the right to make such a judgment? What do you have that God hasn’t given you? And if everything you have is from God, why boast as though it were not a gift?”

1 Corinthians 4:7

“Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.”

James 1:17

God gives the gifts. We dedicate it to Him.
Keep the cycle going and we we will never run out of our gifts. 

Day 42: Go! This is new.

“This was their report to Moses: “We entered the land you sent us to explore, and it is indeed a bountiful country—a land flowing with milk and honey. Here is the kind of fruit it produces.”

Numbers 13:27

“Why did you make us leave Egypt and bring us here to this terrible place? This land has no grain, no figs, no grapes, no pomegranates, and no water to drink!””

Numbers 20:5

The Israelites consistently referred to going back to Egypt, even though they were enslaved and treated harshly there. They complained whenever they faced adversity in their current location. What they were complaining about not having, existed where God was sending them. He made sure that they had what they needed along the journey. Maybe God has already shown us a glimpse of His purpose for our life. We can be so busy living in the past or complaining about the present moment, that we are making it impossible to move forward in our faith, along the journey.

Week 7 – Day 43 to 49

Day 43: Go! This is new.

““Didn’t I send you an urgent invitation? Why didn’t you come right away?” Balak asked Balaam. “Didn’t you believe me when I said I would reward you richly?””

Numbers 22:37

“Balaam replied, “Look, now I have come, but I have no power to say whatever I want. I will speak only the message that God puts in my mouth.””

Numbers 22:38

To Balak, it was “urgent” & he was willing to reward Balaam “richly”. Balaam was operating on God’s agenda. When we are doing what God has called us to do, it’s not about: money, fame, or our timing. It’s about serving the Lord’s purpose for our lives. He will bless us with what we need when we do what He has called us to do.

Day 44: Go! This is new.

“King Balak flew into a rage against Balaam. He angrily clapped his hands and shouted, “I called you to curse my enemies! Instead, you have blessed them three times.”

Numbers 24:10

“Now get out of here! Go back home! I promised to reward you richly, but the Lord has kept you from your reward.””

Numbers 24:11

“Balaam told Balak, “Don’t you remember what I told your messengers? I said, ‘Even if Balak were to give me his palace filled with silver and gold, I would be powerless to do anything against the will of the Lord.’ I told you that I could say only what the Lord says!”

Numbers 24:12-13

The worldly rewards, outside of the Lord’s will, are only used to control us and to demonstrate a false sense of power that will eventually destroy us. They aren’t worth it. We must not settle for the crumbs because God has more than we can imagine waiting for us If we follow His will.

Day 45: Go! This is new.

“When direction from the Lord is needed, Joshua will stand before Eleazar the priest, who will use the Urim—one of the sacred lots cast before the Lord—to determine his will. This is how Joshua and the rest of the community of Israel will determine everything they should do.””
Numbers 27:21

When we are positioned under the Lord’s authority, He will give us direction. We must follow His direction.

Day 46: Go! This is new.

“Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Command the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘You shall be careful to present to Me My offering, My food for My offerings by fire, of a soothing aroma to Me, at their appointed time.’”

Numbers 28:1-2

“On the first day there shall be a holy assembly; you shall do no laborious work.”

Numbers 28:18

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided to you.”

Matthew 6:33

When God lays out the priority, we must make a choice to follow it. When our priority is to follow and act on God’s priority, we will receive His blessing in His order.

Day 47: Go! This is new.

““Why do you want to discourage the rest of the people of Israel from going across to the land the Lord has given them? Your ancestors did the same thing when I sent them from Kadesh-barnea to explore the land.”

Numbers 32:7-8

“But here you are, a brood of sinners, doing exactly the same thing! You are making the Lord even angrier with Israel.”

Numbers 32:14

The cycle is often repeated by the next generation especially we don’t teach them what we have learned. We hope that they will learn and apply what we teach them so that they may live out their God-given purpose!

Day 48: Go! This is new.

“Look! He has placed the land in front of you. Go and occupy it as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has promised you. Don’t be afraid! Don’t be discouraged!’”

Deuteronomy 1:21

“because a wide door for effective ministry has opened for me — yet many oppose me.”

1 Corinthians 16:9

Ministry (From the Greek word:Diakoneo): to serve, to be a servant

Effective: producing a decided, decisive, or desired effect

God has an open door for you and I to walk through! Fear and discouragement will keep us from walking through it! Faith and work will allow us to walk through it!

Day 49: Go! This is new.

“The Lord your God who goes before you will fight for you, just as you saw Him do for you in Egypt.”

Deuteronomy 1:30

“And you saw in the wilderness how the Lord your God carried you as a man carries his son all along the way you traveled until you reached this place.”

Deuteronomy 1:31

“But in spite of this you did not trust the Lord your God,”

Deuteronomy 1:32

“Those who know Your name trust in You because You have not abandoned those who seek You, Yahweh.”

Psalms 9:10

God reveals His names and character to us time and time again. Our trust issues blind us and keep us from walking into what He has for us. There is no way that we will apply His word if we don’t trust His word. Trust issues are heart issues. We must ask Him to fix our hearts!

God is ahead of our thinking and action, but we can only get to where He is with faith & work that aligns with His word. In order for us to apply His word, we have to trust His word!

Week 8 – Day 50 to 56

Day 50: Go! This is new.

“Look, I have taught you statutes and ordinances as the Lord my God has commanded me, so that you may follow them in the land you are entering to possess.”
Deuteronomy 4:5

“Carefully follow them, for this will show your wisdom and understanding in the eyes of the peoples. When they hear about all these statutes, they will say, ‘This great nation is indeed a wise and understanding people.’”
Deuteronomy 4:6

When we obey God’s word wherever He sends us, wisdom and understanding will be seen in us.

Day 51: Go! This is new.

“You were shown these things so that you would know that the Lord is God; there is no other besides Him.”
Deuteronomy 4:35

“He let you hear His voice from heaven to instruct you. He showed you His great fire on earth, and you heard His words from the fire.”
Deuteronomy 4:36

There is a reason why the Lord shows us certain things. There is a reason why He let us hear certain things. We must ask, “What do I need to do now that you have allowed me to experience this?”

Day 52: Go! This is new.

“Moses summoned all Israel and said to them, “Israel, listen to the statutes and ordinances I am proclaiming as you hear them today. Learn and follow them carefully.”
Deuteronomy 5:1

God is always speaking to us. The question is, “Are we listening carefully?”

Day 53: Go! This is new.

“The Lord your God will drive those nations out ahead of you little by little. You will not clear them away all at once, otherwise the wild animals would multiply too quickly for you.”
Deuteronomy 7:22

“Little by little.” Sometimes we get anxious when God isn’t moving at our speed on our timing. He may not do it all at once. He may be sparing us from the results of moving too fast. We must align ourselves under His timing and follow His process. Slow down. Calm down.

Day 54: Go! This is new.

“Remember that the Lord your God led you on the entire journey these 40 years in the wilderness, so that He might humble you and test you to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep His commands.”
Deuteronomy 8:2

When humble circumstances and testing comes from God, this will prove our true character.

Day 55: Go! This is new.

“God is my helper; the Lord is the sustainer of my life.”
Psalms 54:4

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart rejoices, and I praise Him with my song.”
Psalms 28:7

Elohim Ozer Li – God is my help!
Jehovah Uzzi -The Lord is my strength!

Day 56: Go! This is new.

“There below me I could see that you had sinned against the Lord your God. You had melted gold and made a calf idol for yourselves. How quickly you had turned away from the path the Lord had commanded you to follow!”
Deuteronomy 9:16

Imagine the difference in the outcome if we are quick to obey God’s word instead of quickly turning away from His word.

Week 9 – Day 57 to 63

Day 57: Go! This is new.

“Therefore, change your hearts and stop being stubborn.”
Deuteronomy 10:16

Our heart is the center of intellectual, moral, emotional, and spiritual life. Whatever is in our heart will eventually come out as words & actions. When our heart is aligned with God, we experience our purpose & we can be who He is calling us to be.

Day 58: Go! This is new.

“You must fear the Lord your God and worship Him and cling to Him. Your oaths must be in His name alone.”
Deuteronomy 10:20

There are specific experiences that we will have simply because of our attachment to the the Lord.

Day 59: Go! This is new.

“The Lord gives His people strength; the Lord blesses His people with peace.”
Psalms 29:11

The Lord is the Source of strength and peace.

Day 60: Go! This is new.

“Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward.”
Psalms 127:3

We must be good stewards of the little human gifts that the Lord has given us.

Day 61: Go! This is new.

“When he is seated on his royal throne, he is to write a copy of this instruction for himself on a scroll in the presence of the Levitical priests. It is to remain with him, and he is to read from it all the days of his life, so that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, to observe all the words of this instruction, and to do these statutes.”
Deuteronomy 17:18-19

Write the Lord’s word! Read the Lord’s word! Learn the Lord’s word! Observe the Lord’s word!

Practical: Get a pen/pencil and put it on paper! Read Scripture from our physical Bible or the Bible app all the days of our lives. Study it! Observe/apply it in EVERY area of our lives. We will see the results.

When we know who we truly are in the Lord and that we belong to Him, we can authentically live out our lives with service and humility. From a human perspective there is nothing for us to prove, but there is always something for us to exemplify and that is: Faith in Jesus, love, service, humility.

Day 62: Go! This is new.

“They will have no land of their own among the Israelites. The Lord Himself is their special possession, just as He promised them.”
Deuteronomy 18:2

“It is the same with My word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.”
Isaiah 55:11

““This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is God’s word.”
Luke 8:11

If it is God’s word, it will happen!

Day 63: Go! This is new.

““Then the officers will also say, ‘Is anyone here afraid or worried? If you are, you may go home before you frighten anyone else.’”
Deuteronomy 20:8

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”
2 Timothy 1:7

Fear and worry can hold us hostage and we tend to let our fears and worries leak onto other people. We must pray about our fears and worries. Ask God for practical ways to overcome them. Truth is, God didn’t give us a Spirit of fear! Once we understand the freedom that the Lord gives, we won’t be held hostage by our fears and worries.

Week 10 – Day 64 to 70

Day 64: Go! This is new.

“You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God:”
Deuteronomy 28:2

“Your towns and your fields will be blessed. Your children and your crops will be blessed. The offspring of your herds and flocks will be blessed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be blessed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed.”
Deuteronomy 28:3-6

When we are aligned with the Lord and obey His word, we will experience all the blessings that He has for us. These blessings will also go beyond us.

Day 65: Go! This is new.

“The Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you will only move upward and never downward if you listen to the Lord your God’s commands I am giving you today and are careful to follow them.”
Deuteronomy 28:13

“But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ.”⁣
1 Corinthians 11:3 ⁣

⁣As I am reading Scripture and laying here holding my daughter, it reminded me of two things. 1. The Lord will make us the head., due to our alignment and obedience to Him. Our ego gives us false “headship”. 2. My reading and lesson from 8/29/2021…

In order for me to be the man who God has called me to be, for my wife, I have to acknowledge and accept Him as Adonai (The Ruler God). This is how I will be able to fully live out His purpose for my life. Our real identity is revealed to us through our relationship with the Lord. This is where we get to the root of: faith, love, service, and humility. ⁣

I consistently remind Kristen of this, “I cannot expect you to follow my lead if I’m not exemplifying what it means to follow Jesus.”⁣

Day 66: Go! This is new.

“I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, love the Lord your God, obey Him, and remain faithful to Him. For He is your life, and He will prolong your life in the land the Lord swore to give to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.””
Deuteronomy 30:19-20

Every choice that we make in life has a consequence. The choices that we make today will have an impact on our lives and on the lives of our descendants. When we choose to obey the Lord, we are making the correct choice.

Day 67: Go! This is new.

“Joshua son of Nun, assistant to Moses since his youth, responded, “Moses, my Lord, stop them! ””
Numbers 11:28

“Moses then summoned Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you will go with this people into the land the Lord swore to give to their fathers. You will enable them to take possession of it.”
Deuteronomy 31:7

There was a process by which Joshua went from assistant to Moses to the leader of the Israelites. When our roles change, usually our responsibilities do also. We must remember to stay consistent in our principles. No matter what role God puts me in, my principles are: Connect, Learn, Teach, Serve, and Love.

Day 68: Go! This is new.

“The Lord commissioned Joshua son of Nun, “Be strong and courageous, for you will bring the Israelites into the land I swore to them, and I will be with you.””
Deuteronomy 31:23

When the Lord “commissions” us, this means that we are chosen for His mission. We must be strong because there is work to be done. We must be courageous because we will face adversity. We must understand that He will be with us. In Matthew 28:20, Jesus told the disciples, “I will Be with you always, even to the end of the age.” Today, study God’s name as “Jehovah Immeka”.

Day 69: Go! This is new.

“The Rock — His work is perfect; all His ways are entirely just. A faithful God, without prejudice, He is righteous and true.”
Deuteronomy 32:4

““Therefore, everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on the rock. The rain fell, the rivers rose, and the winds blew and pounded that house. Yet it didn’t collapse, because its foundation was on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of Mine and doesn’t act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, the rivers rose, the winds blew and pounded that house, and it collapsed. And its collapse was great! ””
Matthew 7:24-27

El Sali – God is my Rock

Day 70: Go! This is new.

“Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do.”
Joshua 1:7

“Then Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, “Are you also going to leave?” Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life.”
John 6:67-68

Deviate: depart from an established course

We can’t deviate from God’s word and expect to find our purpose.

Week 11 – Day 71 to 77

Day 71: Go! This is new.

“Since you have never traveled this way before, they will guide you. Stay about half a mile behind them, keeping a clear distance between you and the Ark. Make sure you don’t come any closer.””
Joshua 3:4

“When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on His own but will tell you what He has heard. He will tell you about the future.”
John 16:13

Guide – show or indicate the way to

Day 72: Go! This is new.

“The Lord told Joshua, “Today I will begin to make you a great leader in the eyes of all the Israelites. They will know that I am with you, just as I was with Moses.”
Joshua 3:7

“The greatest among you must be a servant.”
Matthew 23:11

God was making Joshua a great leader. Jesus used the word “greatest” in context with being a servant. In Number 32:12 we read that Joshua and Caleb wholeheartedly followed the Lord. Let God establish us as leaders we must follow Him and serve.

Day 73: Go! This is new.

““Moses My servant is dead. Now you and all the people prepare to cross over the Jordan to the land I am giving the Israelites.”
Joshua 1:2

Prepare: to make ready

Day 74: Go! This is new.

“When Joshua was near the town of Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with sword in hand. Joshua went up to him and demanded, “Are you friend or foe?””
Joshua 5:13

““Neither one,” he replied. “I am the commander of the Lord’s army.” At this, Joshua fell with his face to the ground in reverence. “I am at your command,” Joshua said. “What do you want your servant to do?””
Joshua 5:14

Our human mind may think it’s one or the other, but the Lord’s answer may be neither. This takes me to Isaiah 55:8 ““For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways.” This is the Lord’s declaration.”

Day 75: Go! This is new.

“That day the Lord made Joshua a great leader in the eyes of all the Israelites, and for the rest of his life they revered him as much as they had revered Moses.”
Joshua 4:14

“And as the Israelites watched, Joshua copied onto the stones of the altar the instructions Moses had given them.”
Joshua 8:32

When our contract is with the Lord, we must intentionally align ourselves under His principles whether people are watching or not.

Day 76: Go! This is new.

“As the Lord had commanded his servant Moses, so Moses commanded Joshua. And Joshua did as he was told, carefully obeying all the commands that the Lord had given to Moses.”
Joshua 11:15

We must teach the next generation what the Lord has taught us.

Day 77: Go! This is new.

“When Joshua was an old man, the Lord said to him, “You are growing old, and much land remains to be conquered.”
Joshua 13:1

“In the same way, encourage the young men to live wisely. And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching.”
Titus 2:6-7

As we get older, we must make sure that we are encouraging the next generation and setting an example for them to follow. God gives us His principles to do this!

Week 12 – Day 78 to 84

Day 78: Go! This is new.

“I was forty years old when Moses, the servant of the Lord, sent me from Kadesh-barnea to explore the land of Canaan. I returned and gave an honest report, but my brothers who went with me frightened the people from entering the Promised Land. For my part, I wholeheartedly followed the Lord my God.”
Joshua 14:7-8

Choose to give an honest report. Choose purpose over popularity. Choose to follow the Lord.

Day 79: Go! This is new.

““But my servant Caleb has a different attitude than the others have. He has remained loyal to Me, so I will bring him into the land he explored. His descendants will possess their full share of that land.”

Numbers 14:24

““Now, as you can see, the Lord has kept me alive and well as He promised for all these forty-five years since Moses made this promise—even while Israel wandered in the wilderness. Today I am eighty-five years old.”
Joshua 14:10

El Emunah (The Faithful God). God’s promises require His process. His promises will always be fulfilled.

Day 80: Go! This is new.

“Then Joshua asked them, “How long are you going to wait before taking possession of the remaining land the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has given to you?”

Day 83: Go! This is new.

Joshua 24:21-22

“You are a witness to your own decision”

Day 84: Go! This is new.

“I did this to test Israel—to see whether or not they would follow the ways of the Lord as their ancestors did.””
Judges 2:22

“Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing.”
James 1:2-4

The lesson is in the testing.

Week 13 – Day 85 to 91

Day 85: Go! This is new.

“Then Deborah said to Barak, “Get ready! This is the day the Lord will give you victory over Sisera, for the Lord is marching ahead of you.” So Barak led his 10,000 warriors down the slopes of Mount Tabor into battle.”
Judges 4:14

Jehovah Shammah – The Lord is there

If God is sending me there, I know that He is already there. This allows me to walk into my purpose with confidence. My confidence is in the Lord. This is where I learned His name as Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is there.)

Day 86: Go! This is new.

Judges 6:13

“The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and deliver Israel from the power of Midian. Am I not sending you? ””

Once we know that it is the Lord, we must respond with obedience.

Day 90: Go! This is new.

“The Lord said to Gideon, “You have too many people for Me to hand the Midianites over to you, or else Israel might brag: ‘I did it myself.’”
Judges 7:2

God downsized Gideon’s army from 32,000 people to 300 people. This is a decrease of 99.0625%. Gideon was left with 0.9375%. All we need to know is this, Jehovah Immeka – The Lord is with you.

Day 91: Go! This is new.

“I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the world.””

Judges 13:3-4

The reality was stated. The promise was clear. The instructions were given.

When we come face to face with fear we must fight it with faith. Fear is the belief that something bad will happen. Faith is the belief that something will come from this.

“If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me. Where I am, there My servant also will be. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.”

Servant means we are taking a position of humility. When we respond to the Lord as His servant, we are positioned to do the work that He calls us to do.

Day 102: Go! This is new.

“Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him, and He fulfilled everything Samuel prophesied.”
‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭3:19‬ ‭

“All Israel from Dan to Beer-sheba knew that Samuel was a confirmed prophet of the Lord.”
‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭3:20‬ ‭

God did His part through Samuel. Samuel lived out what God was doing in him.

Day 103: Go! This is new.

“The Lord continued to appear in Shiloh, because there He revealed Himself to Samuel by His word.”
‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭3:21‬ ‭

“…He revealed Himself to Samuel by His word.”

Day 104: Go! This is new.

“When they said, “Give us a king to judge us,” Samuel considered their demand sinful, so he prayed to the Lord.”
‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭8:6‬ ‭

“But the Lord told him, “Listen to the people and everything they say to you. They have not rejected you; they have rejected Me as their king.”
‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭8:7‬ ‭

“They are doing the same thing to you that they have done to Me, since the day I brought them out of Egypt until this day, abandoning Me and worshiping other gods.”
‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭8:8‬ ‭

Rejected: Thrown away; cast off; refused; slighted.

Day 105: Go! This is new.

“Samuel told all the Lord’s words to the people who were asking him for a king.”
‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭8:10‬ ‭

“The people refused to listen to Samuel. “No! ” they said. “We must have a king over us.”
‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭8:19‬ ‭

When something is “refused” it is considered as “filth, trash, & garbage.” This is how they treated the words that Samuel told them, from God.

Week 16 – Day 106 to 112

Day 106: Go! This is new.

“One day the donkeys of Saul’s father Kish wandered off. Kish said to his son Saul, “Take one of the attendants with you and go look for the donkeys.””
1 Samuel 9:3

Saul’s process of being anointed as the ruler over Israel started with him going to look for donkeys that went missing.

We never know what type of journey God is going to take us on that leads us to His purpose for our lives.

Day 107: Go! This is new.

“When they came there to the hill, behold, a group of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God rushed upon him, so that he prophesied among them.”
1 Samuel 10:10

“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”
Romans 8:11

When God’s Spirit is working in us, this will give us the power to do what He calls us to do.

Day 108: Go! This is new.

“Everyone who knew him previously and saw him prophesy with the prophets asked each other, “What has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets? ””
1 Samuel 10:11

“You took off your former way of life, the old self that is corrupted by deceitful desires;”
Ephesians 4:22

“Who knew him previously” “Former way of life” “Old self”

Lessons from Scripture: We can’t move forward if we are still holding on to who we used to be. People cannot move forward if they are still holding on to who we used to be. When the Lord changes our hearts and places His Spirit in us, we are no longer who we used to be.

Day 109: Go! This is new.

“Saul also went to his home in Gibeah, and brave men whose hearts God had touched went with him.”
1 Samuel 10:26

“But some wicked men said, “How can this guy save us? ” They despised him and did not bring him a gift, but Saul said nothing.”
1 Samuel 10:27

There were 3 different responses here. Let’s look at them. The brave men responded by going with Saul. The wicked men responded by despising him and not bringing him a gift. Saul responded by saying nothing.

Think about this. Sometimes it’s best for us to pay attention, but not say a word. The best way for us to respond is to act on God’s word.

Day 110: Go! This is new.

“Now present yourselves, so I may confront you before the Lord about all the righteous acts He has done for you and your ancestors.”
1 Samuel 12:7

Stories about what God has done for our ancestors will be passed down. We will also experience God for ourselves. Our stories will be passed down and the next generation must experience God for themselves also.

Day 111: Go! This is new.

“But now your kingdom shall not endure. The Lord has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the Lord has appointed him ruler over His people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you.””
1 Samuel 13:14

“After He had removed him, He raised up David to be their king, concerning whom He also testified and said, ‘I have found David, the son of Jesse, a man after My heart, who will do all My will.’”
Acts 13:22

The Lord: sought out David, appointed him, and raised him up to be their king. What was David doing? He was a man after God’s heart.

If we are after God’s heart, we doing what His word says to do. Trust that He will come to get us, appoint us, and raise us up to where He needs us.

Day 112: Go! This is new.

“Afterward, go ahead of me to Gilgal. I will come to you to offer burnt offerings and to sacrifice fellowship offerings. Wait seven days until I come to you and show you what to do.””
1 Samuel 10:8

“He waited seven days for the appointed time that Samuel had set, but Samuel didn’t come to Gilgal, and the troops were deserting him. So Saul said, “Bring me the burnt offering and the fellowship offerings.” Then he offered the burnt offering.”
1 Samuel 13:8-9

“Samuel said to Saul, “You have been foolish. You have not kept the command which the Lord your God gave you. It was at this time that the Lord would have permanently established your reign over Israel,”
1 Samuel 13:13

Waiting was for the purpose of acting in obedience.

Week 17 – Day 113 to 119

Day 113: Go! This is new.

“Samuel asked him, “Are these all the sons you have? ” “There is still the youngest,” he answered, “but right now he’s tending the sheep.” Samuel told Jesse, “Send for him. We won’t sit down to eat until he gets here.””
1 Samuel 16:11

“So Jesse sent for him. He had beautiful eyes and a healthy, handsome appearance. Then the Lord said, “Anoint him, for he is the one.””
1 Samuel 16:12

When Samuel sent for David, what was David doing? Tending the sheep (WORKING). The Lord said, “Anoint him, for he is the one.” God will come to get us from anywhere when we are after His heart (1 Samuel 13:14).

Day 114: Go! This is new.

“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God does not see as man sees, since man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.””
1 Samuel 16:7

Heart: center of intellectual, moral, emotional, and spiritual life

When we use the phrase, “God knows my heart,” This is 100% correct. But this doesn’t give us the green light to act negatively. What’s in our hearts will come out as actions. We must ask God to deal with our heart “the root” so that we are healed to act appropriately on His word.

Day 115: Go! This is new.

“Samuel asked him, “Are these all the sons you have? ” “There is still the youngest,” he answered, “but right now he’s tending the sheep.” Samuel told Jesse, “Send for him. We won’t sit down to eat until he gets here.””
1 Samuel 16:11

“So Samuel took the horn of oil, anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and the Spirit of the Lord took control of David from that day forward. Then Samuel set out and went to Ramah.”
1 Samuel 16:13

“Then Saul dispatched messengers to Jesse and said, “Send me your son David, who is with the sheep.””
1 Samuel 16:19

David went back to the sheep even after he had been anointed and selected as a king! Are we humble enough to do that?

Day 116: Go! This is new.

“Then Saul commanded his servants, “Find me someone who plays well and bring him to me.””
1 Samuel 16:17

“One of the young men answered, “I have seen a son of Jesse of Bethlehem who knows how to play the lyre. He is also a valiant man, a warrior, eloquent, handsome, and the Lord is with him.””
1 Samuel 16:18

“A gift opens doors for a man and brings him before the great.”
Proverbs 18:16

“and the Lord is with him” –
Jehovah Immeka (The Lord is with you)

Day 117: Go! This is new.

“Then the Philistine said, “I defy the ranks of Israel today. Send me a man so we can fight each other! ””
1 Samuel 17:10

“When the Philistine looked and saw David, he despised him because he was just a youth, healthy and handsome.”
1 Samuel 17:42

Defy: To dare; to provoke to combat or strife
Despise – to look down on with disrespect or aversion

What we defy and despise could be the cause of our downfall.

Day 118: Go! This is new.

“Then Saul had his own military clothes put on David. He put a bronze helmet on David’s head and had him put on armor.”
1 Samuel 17:38

“David strapped his sword on over the military clothes and tried to walk, but he was not used to them. “I can’t walk in these,” David said to Saul, “I’m not used to them.” So David took them off.”
1 Samuel 17:39

“Instead, he took his staff in his hand and chose five smooth stones from the wadi and put them in the pouch, in his shepherd’s bag. Then, with his sling in his hand, he approached the Philistine.”
1 Samuel 17:40

Instead: in place of

When David couldn’t wear Saul’s clothes it made me think about our “specific missions” from God. When someone else’s specific mission doesn’t fit us we often use “if statements by saying If I had this or that, I would be able to do “this or that.” No! My specific mission doesn’t fit you and your specific mission doesn’t fit me. We must use what we have in order to do what God is calling us to do. When we are doing it in alignment with Him we will be able to do more than we could ever imagine.

Day 119: Go! This is new.

“One day the donkeys of Saul’s father Kish wandered off. Kish said to his son Saul, “Take one of the attendants with you and go look for the donkeys.””
1 Samuel 9:3

“One day Jesse had told his son David: “Take this half-bushel of roasted grain along with these 10 loaves of bread for your brothers and hurry to their camp. Also take these 10 portions of cheese to the field commander. Check on the welfare of your brothers and bring a confirmation from them.”
1 Samuel 17:17-18

“When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into deep water and let down your nets for a catch.””
Luke 5:4

Are we simply being obedient?

Week 18 – Day 120 to 126

Day 120: Go! This is new.

“Now Saul was afraid of David, because the Lord was with him but had left Saul.”
1 Samuel 18:12

“Therefore, Saul reassigned David and made him commander over 1,000 men. David led the troops and continued to be successful in all his activities because the Lord was with him.”
1 Samuel 18:13-14

Because: by the cause.
Cause: reason.
Therefore: for that reason

The reason is the “purpose.” When God is the reason we do what we do, we will be successful at whatever it is that we do! “Jehovah Immeka – God is with you “

Day 121: Go! This is new.

“When Saul observed that David was very successful, he dreaded him.”
1 Samuel 18:15

“Saul’s servants reported these words directly to David, but he replied, “Is it trivial in your sight to become the king’s son-in-law? I am a poor man who is common.””
1 Samuel 18:23

“Saul realized that the Lord was with David and that his daughter Michal loved him, and he became even more afraid of David. As a result, Saul was David’s enemy from then on.”
1 Samuel 18:28-29

In these verses, we get a live look at humility and pride. Look at how David saw himself and look at how Saul saw David. Saul dreaded & was afraid of David. In 1 Samuel 18:23, David saw himself as a poor man who was common. Our pride will destroy us. Our humility will put us exactly where God needs us.

Day 122: Go! This is new.

“Every day Jesse’s son lives on earth you and your kingship are not secure. Now send for him and bring him to me — he deserves to die.””
1 Samuel 20:31

“Then Saul’s son Jonathan came to David in Horesh and encouraged him in his faith in God, saying, “Don’t be afraid, for my father Saul will never lay a hand on you. You yourself will be king over Israel, and I’ll be your second-in-command. Even my father Saul knows it is true.””
1 Samuel 23:16-17

Don’t be surprised when God does things that are completely opposite of our human traditions!

Day 123: Go! This is new.

“Who has the king of Israel come after? What are you chasing after? A dead dog? A flea?”
1 Samuel 24:14

Remember in 1 Samuel 18:23 David saw himself as “poor and common.” Saul had the highest title in the land, yet he chose to chase after David to destroy him.

We must ask ourselves, “What are we chasing after and Why?”

Day 124: Go! This is new.

“But David said, “No, my brothers! Don’t be selfish with what the Lord has given us. He has kept us safe and helped us defeat the band of raiders that attacked us.”
1 Samuel 30:23

“For what gives you the right to make such a judgment? What do you have that God hasn’t given you? And if everything you have is from God, why boast as though it were not a gift?”
1 Corinthians 4:7

When God blesses us, we must selflessly share that blessing. If we are selfish with the blessing, then why should God continue to bless us? We all have work to do in this category.

Day 125: Go! This is new.

“After this, David asked the Lord, “Should I move back to one of the towns of Judah?” “Yes,” the Lord replied. Then David asked, “Which town should I go to?” “To Hebron,” the Lord answered.”
2 Samuel 2:1

“Then the men of Judah came to David and anointed him king over the people of Judah. When David heard that the men of Jabesh-gilead had buried Saul,”
2 Samuel 2:4

David knew that he would become king of Israel, but he didn’t know anything about being the King over the people of Judah, first! When we are obedient to the Lord’s commands, He will lead us to places and put us in positions that we had no prior knowledge of.

Day 126: Go! This is new.

““Now this is what you are to say to My servant David: ‘This is what the Lord of Hosts says: I took you from the pasture and from following the sheep to be ruler over My people Israel.”
2 Samuel 7:8

“So David reigned over all Israel, administering justice and righteousness for all his people.”
2 Samuel 8:15

“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; faithful love and truth go before You.”
Psalms 89:14

Justice: Right; application of equity
Righteousness: justice and rightness conformity to divine law and morality

In 2 Samuel 7:8 where God said “I took you from the pasture and from following the sheep to be ruler over My people Israel.” This put me in the mindset that David didn’t fake his way to the top, he was planted by God. Administering justice and righteousness for his people was no problem because He knew who planted Him where He was.

Week 19 – Day 127 to 133

Day 127: Go! This is new.

“Then David confessed to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.” Nathan replied, “Yes, but the Lord has forgiven you, and you won’t die for this sin.”
2 Samuel 12:13

“God, create a clean heart for me and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
Psalms 51:10

After David committed adultery with Bathsheba, he confessed his sin. He also asked God for a clean heart and a steadfast spirit. He genuinely wanted to be a better man after doing what was evil in the Lord’s sight. We can’t undo yesterday, but today can be a new start. We must confess to the Lord where we have done wrong in His sight. When we do this, we must ask Him for a clean heart and a steadfast spirit!

Day 128: Go! This is new.

““I will do whatever you think is best,” the king replied to them. So he stood beside the gate while all the troops marched out by hundreds and thousands.”
2 Samuel 18:4

“Plans fail when there is no counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.”
Proverbs 15:22

David’s title as “king” didn’t keep him from listening his troops! We must never let our title keep us from listening to wise counsel from others around us.

Day 129: Go! This is new.

“Lord, You are my lamp; the Lord illuminates my darkness.”
2 Samuel 22:29

“Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.”
Psalms 119:105

You are! Your word is!

Scripture tells us that “the Lord is my lamp” and His word is a lamp for my feet & a light on my path. If God Himself is my lamp and His word is a lamp and light, this is proof that He is illuminating our path so that we can see where are going. We may not be able to see into the future, but we can see our feet. Today, we must exercise our faith and get our feet moving.

Day 130: Go! This is new.

“The Spirit of the Lord spoke through me, His word was on my tongue.”
2 Samuel 23:2

“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”
Galatians 2:20

The Lord spoke through me. Christ lives in me.

When the Lord speaks through us, we become a vessel. When Jesus lives in us by the Holy Spirit, we find our purpose by asking the question, “Lord what is it that you want to do through me?” Under Jesus and God we all have a God-given purpose in life.

Day 131: Go! This is new.

“and keep your obligation to the Lord your God to walk in His ways and to keep His statutes, commands, ordinances, and decrees. This is written in the law of Moses, so that you will have success in everything you do and wherever you turn,”
1 Kings 2:3

“I say then, walk by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.”
Galatians 5:16

Walk in His ways. Walk by the Spirit.

Day 132: Go! This is new.

““Lord my God, You have now made Your servant king in my father David’s place. Yet I am just a youth with no experience in leadership. Your servant is among Your people You have chosen, a people too numerous to be numbered or counted. So give Your servant an obedient heart to judge Your people and to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours? ””
1 Kings 3:7-9

Your servant. Your people. You have chosen. All we have to do is do it how the Lord says do it!

Day 133: Go! This is new.

“God gave Solomon wisdom, very great insight, and understanding as vast as the sand on the seashore.”
1 Kings 4:29

“For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
Proverbs 2:6

God gave Solomon: wisdom, insight, and understanding.

Week 20 – Day 134 to 140

Day 134: Go! This is new.

“In the past, even when Saul was king, you were the one who really led the forces of Israel. And the Lord your God told you, ‘You will be the shepherd of my people Israel. You will be the leader of my people Israel.’””
1 Chronicles 11:2

“Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.””
Matthew 4:19

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
Romans 8:28

“Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but He has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like Him, for we will see Him as He really is.”
1 John 3:2

Will be

Day 135: Go! This is new.

“So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron, and David made a covenant with them in Hebron before the Lord; and they anointed David king over Israel, according to the word of the Lord through Samuel.”
1 Chronicles 11:3

“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.”
Colossians 2:8

If what we do is according to God’s word and according to Jesus, we are properly aligned to receive our God-given assignment.
Remember: Alignment before assignment

Day 136: Go! This is new.

“Above all, may the Lord give you insight and understanding when He puts you in charge of Israel so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God. Then you will succeed if you carefully follow the statutes and ordinances the Lord commanded Moses for Israel. Be strong and courageous. Don’t be afraid or discouraged.”
1 Chronicles 22:12-13

God always lives up to His role. We must do our part, based on His word, in order to receive His promises.

Day 137: Go! This is new.

“The Levites 30 years old or more were counted; the total number of men was 38,000 by headcount.”
1 Chronicles 23:3

““Of these,” David said, “24,000 are to be in charge of the work on the Lord’s temple, 6,000 are to be officers and judges, 4,000 are to be gatekeepers, and 4,000 are to praise the Lord with the instruments that I have made for worship.””
1 Chronicles 23:4-5

Every one of the 38,000 men had a role and a responsibility. If we spend our time serving in God-given roles and handling our responsibilities, we will be doing what He has called us to do.

24k work on the Lord’s temple
6k were officers and judges
4K gatekeepers
4K praise the Lord w/instruments made for worship

Day 138: Go! This is new.

““I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another. By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.””
John 13:34-35

“May they all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You. May they also be one in Us, so the world may believe You sent Me.”
John 17:21

There is a vital reason why Jesus spoke on love and unity.

Day 139: Go! This is new.

“They say to the seers, “Do not see,” and to the prophets, “Do not prophesy the truth to us. Tell us flattering things. Prophesy illusions.”
Isaiah 30:10

“Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.”
John 8:45

“Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.”
John 17:17

“Love finds no joy in unrighteousness but rejoices in the truth.”
1 Corinthians 13:6

Without truth, there is no love.

Many times the truth isn’t wanted because it will uproot so many systems and ways of life that have been put into place. In order to get to a place of love in the world, we must be rooted in God’s truth, which is His word.

Day 140: Go! This is new.

““I still have many things to tell you, but you can’t bear them now.”
John 16:12

“When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak whatever He hears. He will also declare to you what is to come.”
John 16:13

“He will glorify Me, because He will take from what is Mine and declare it to you.”
John 16:14

The Spirit of truth

If we have a clear understanding of what truth is from Scripture, how is it that we get things wrong so much? My perception of this is that we start to get things wrong when we rely on our flesh for answers that can only be understood by things that are spiritual. This is why it is so important for us to submit to the Spirit so that we can be guided into God’s truth.

Week 21 – Day 141 to 147

Day 141: Go! This is new.

“Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves.”
John 14:11

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.”
John 14:26

The Holy Spirit allows us to do & understand Spiritual things. The human mind doesn’t have the capacity to understand this but the works will be obvious and evident.

Day 142: Go! This is new.

“When Jesus turned and noticed them following Him, He asked them, “What are you looking for? ” They said to Him, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are You staying? ” “Come and you’ll see,” He replied. So they went and saw where He was staying, and they stayed with Him that day. It was about 10 in the morning.”
John 1:38-39

We must be honest and disclose what it is that we really are looking for. My answer used to be “I’m just trying to find me.” What I really meant was I’m trying to find God’s purpose for my life. I didn’t get that until I actually committed to following Jesus and walking by the Holy Spirit.

The question “What are you looking for?” is one that we have to answer for ourselves. They answered the question by asking Jesus where He was staying. He responded by saying come and you’ll see. Come and see means that they were about to experience it for themselves. If we are walking with Jesus we will have to experience Him for ourselves. I pray that we all come to repentance and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 143: Go! This is new.

“Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard John and followed Him. He first found his own brother Simon and told him, “We have found the Messiah! ” (which means “Anointed One”), and he brought Simon to Jesus. When Jesus saw him, He said, “You are Simon, son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which means “Rock”).”
John 1:40-42

We never truly know what impact we can have on the life of one person. I pray that we all come to repentance and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Andrew knew that he had to bring Simon (later Peter )to Jesus, but he had no idea what Jesus was going to do through Peter for the purpose of advancing His Kingdom on earth. We never truly know what impact we can have on the life of one person. I pray that we all come to repentance and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 144: Go! This is new.

“Philip *found Nathanael and *said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” Nathanael said to him, “Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?” Philip *said to him, “Come and see.””
John 1:45-46

We cannot change where we were born, but we can allow the Holy Spirit to work in us so that we can be a vessel for change. God is not limited by a geographical location.

Nathaniel showed his perception of Nazareth by what he asked. Philip was going to show him Jesus. We may be from places where people have the same perception as Nathaniel. We cannot change where we were born, but we can allow the Holy Spirit to work in us so that we can be a vessel for change. God is not limited by a geographical location. I pray that we all come to repentance, put our faith in Jesus, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 145: Go! This is new.

“And this is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the Light; for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light, so that his deeds will not be exposed. But the one who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds will be revealed as having been performed in God.””
John 3:19-21

We must learn God’s truth and practice it. I pray that we all come to the light, repent, put our faith in Jesus, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 146: Go! This is new.

“Now John also was baptizing in Aenon, near Salim, because there was an abundance of water there; and people were coming and being baptized—”
John 3:23

“So then, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that He was making and baptizing more disciples than John (although Jesus Himself was not baptizing; rather, His disciples were), He left Judea and went away again to Galilee.”
John 4:1-3

There is nothing to compare and contrast when we are living out our God-given purpose. I pray that we all are freed from the comparison trap, repent, put our faith in Jesus, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 147: Go! This is new.

“Many more believed because of His word; and they were saying to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this One is indeed the Savior of the world.””
John 4:41-42

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.”
Romans 10:17

I pray that God’s word is heard today and we take the next steps in our faith. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Week 22 – Day 148 to 154

Day 148: Go! This is new.

“After this, a Jewish festival took place, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. By the Sheep Gate in Jerusalem there is a pool, called Bethesda in Hebrew, which has five colonnades. Within these lay a large number of the sick — blind, lame, and paralyzed — waiting for the moving of the water, because an angel would go down into the pool from time to time and stir up the water. Then the first one who got in after the water was stirred up recovered from whatever ailment he had. One man was there who had been sick for 38 years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew he had already been there a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to get well? ” “Sir,” the sick man answered, “I don’t have a man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I’m coming, someone goes down ahead of me.” “Get up,” Jesus told him, “pick up your mat and walk! ” Instantly the man got well, picked up his mat, and started to walk. Now that day was the Sabbath,”
John 5:1-9

I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 149: Go! This is new.

“In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:16

““I can do nothing on My own. I judge only as I hear, and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”
John 5:30

It’s not about me. With everything that I do, I pray that it is glorying the Lord, and there is no hidden agenda in me because this is not about me. If we have our agenda we worry about someone taking our idea and who is getting the recognition for it. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 150: Go! This is new.

“After dismissing the crowds, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. When evening came, He was there alone.”
Matthew 14:23

“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He got up, went out, and made His way to a deserted place. And He was praying there.”
Mark 1:35

“Yet He often withdrew to deserted places and prayed.”
Luke 5:16

“During those days He went out to the mountain to pray and spent all night in prayer to God.”
Luke 6:12

“Therefore, when Jesus knew that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He withdrew again to the mountain by Himself.”
John 6:15

To get the vision from God and stay rooted in our purpose, we will have to go into solitude with Him. This is when I learned God’s name as Elohim Muchase Lanu – God is my refuge

Solitude: state of being alone, or withdrawn from society.

Solitude with God is not a place of loneliness. It is a place of Spiritual necessity.

Jesus had a continuous cycle of going into solitude with God and then going back to serve. Once we come out of solitude with Yahweh, we must come back and serve. We cannot let our solitude lead to selfishness. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 151: Go! This is new.

“But when it was now the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and began to teach. The Jews then were astonished, saying, “How has this man become learned, having never been educated?” So Jesus answered them and said, “My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If anyone is willing to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.”
John 7:14-18

I pray that we teach what God reveals to us, repent, put our faith in Jesus, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 152: Go! This is new.

“But we know where this man is from. When the Messiah comes, nobody will know where He is from.” As He was teaching in the temple complex, Jesus cried out, “You know Me and you know where I am from. Yet I have not come on My own, but the One who sent Me is true. You don’t know Him; I know Him because I am from Him, and He sent Me.””
John 7:27-29

They were focusing on where Jesus was from physically. They couldn’t understand that His Spiritual origin was from God. Without Spiritual revelation, our mind only understands human logic. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 153: Go! This is new.

“On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, he should come to Me and drink! The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.” He said this about the Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus were going to receive the Spirit, for the Spirit had not yet been received because Jesus had not yet been glorified.”
John 7:37-39

I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, receive the Holy Spirit and allow the Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 154: Go! This is new.

“Then Jesus spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.””
John 8:12

Following Jesus requires faith and action. When we follow Him we never have to walk in darkness. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, receive the Holy Spirit and allow the Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Week 23 – Day 155 to 161

Day 155: Go! This is new.

“As He was saying these things, many believed in Him. So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, you really are My disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.””
John 8:30-32

“The” truth is God’s absolute truth.

They committed to believing in Jesus. This was good but it wasn’t the end for them. Believing in Jesus is not the end for us either. Throughout Scripture, Jesus talks about being a: Believer, Follower, Servant, and Disciple. Our goal is to grow in our Spiritual journey to being a disciple. To get to this, notice Jesus said, “If you continue in My word, you really are My disciples.” To continue is to be consistent and steadfast. Then Jesus says,” You will know the truth.” The word “The” is speaking to one truth. This is God’s absolute truth. The truth is what sets us free. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, receive the Holy Spirit, and allow our Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 156: Go! This is new.

“After He said these things He spit on the ground, made some mud from the saliva, and spread the mud on his eyes. “Go,” He told him, “wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means “Sent”). So he left, washed, and came back seeing.”
John 9:6-7

Jesus made the mud and put it on his eyes. All he had to do was go wash it off. Remember “We will show our faith by how we respond to the Lord.” I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, receive the Holy Spirit, and allow our Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 157: Go! This is new.

““Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” Jesus answered. “This came about so that God’s works might be displayed in him.”
John 9:3

“When Jesus heard it, He said, “This sickness will not end in death but is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.””
John 11:4

I pray that the works of God are displayed in us and He is glorified through whatever we go through. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, receive the Holy Spirit, and allow our Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 158: Go! This is new.

““Remove the stone,” Jesus said. Martha, the dead man’s sister, told Him, “Lord, he’s already decaying. It’s been four days.””
John 11:39

“Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God? ””
John 11:40

Jesus didn’t dismiss the fact of what Martha stated. He was about to show her something beyond the facts. Faith doesn’t dismiss the facts, but it does go beyond the facts. This is why we must walk by the Spirit in this life. Our human understanding isn’t enough. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, receive the Holy Spirit, and allow our Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Lessons from Scripture – Audio: Faith Beyond the Facts

Day 159: Go! This is new.

“If we let Him continue in this way, everyone will believe in Him! Then the Romans will come and remove both our place and our nation.””
John 11:48

“Nevertheless, many did believe in Him even among the rulers, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, so they would not be banned from the synagogue. For they loved praise from men more than praise from God.”
John 12:42-43

The praise from God is true fulfillment not the praise from men. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, receive the Holy Spirit, and allow our Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 160: Go! This is new.

“If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me. Where I am, there My servant also will be. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.”
John 12:26

God will honor us when we serve Jesus. We serve Jesus by doing what He has called us to do. The Holy Spirit will give us God’s truth and gifts to serve the Lord. I’m speaking on this from experience. What I’ve been called to do was never something that I imagined. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, receive the Holy Spirit, and allow the Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

When we serve Jesus, this is how we will live His purpose for our lives. Living His purpose for our lives is our God-given purpose used to reach people. The Holy Spirit will guide us into the Lord’s truth and provide us with gifts to serve Jesus. When we serve Jesus, God will honor us. I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, receive the Holy Spirit, and allow our Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 161: Go! This is new.

“If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.”
John 13:17

“But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does.”
James 1:25

We must ask this question to ourselves, “Am I doing what God’s word tells me to do? I pray that we repent, put our faith in Jesus, receive the Holy Spirit, and allow the Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Week 24 – Day 162 to 168

Day 162: Go! This is new.

“For I have given you an example that you also should do just as I have done for you.”
John 13:15

““I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another. By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.””
John 13:34-35

Jesus is the example. He was telling the disciples to do “just as” He did for them. When the Holy Spirit is in us, the first fruit is love. See Galatians 5:22-23. Loving one another is how all people will know that we are disciples of Jesus Christ. I pray that we repent, be baptized, receive the Holy Spirit and allow the Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 163: Go! This is new.

“And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written,”
Luke 4:17

“But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil.”
1 Thessalonians 5:21-22

Open Scripture, read it and examine it. Ask the Lord for understanding on everything. I pray that we repent, be baptized, receive the Holy Spirit and allow the Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 164: Go! This is new.

“Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.”
Matthew 6:10

““I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”
John 5:30

“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”
John 6:38

When we live out God’s will for our lives, we will see the results right here on earth. How do you find God’s will for your life? The Spirit will reveal it to us when we put our faith in Jesus Christ. I pray that we repent, be baptized, receive the Holy Spirit and allow the Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 165: Go! This is new.

“Then Jesus cried out in the temple, teaching and saying, “You both know Me and know where I am from; and I have not come of Myself, but He who sent Me is true, whom you do not know.”
John 7:28

“Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me.”
John 8:42

When our priority is to follow Jesus, our mission will come from God and be carried out by the Holy Spirit working in us. He will send us where He needs us. I pray that we repent, be baptized, receive the Holy Spirit and allow the Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 166: Go! This is new.

“For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me.””
John 12:49-50

“Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.”
John 14:10

“But when they hand you over, do not worry about how or what you are to say; for it will be given you in that hour what you are to say. For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.”
Matthew 10:19-20

“But you shall speak My words to them whether they listen or not, for they are rebellious.”
Ezekiel 2:7

“but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ,”
Ephesians 4:15

Speak what the Holy Spirit gives us.

Day 167: Go! This is new.

“So Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.””
John 8:28-29

“I will not speak much more with you, for the ruler of the world is coming, and he has nothing in Me; but so that the world may know that I love the Father, I do exactly as the Father commanded Me. Get up, let us go from here.”
John 14:30-31

Our love for the Lord will be proven by what we do in alignment with His word. I pray that we repent, be baptized, receive the Holy Spirit and allow the Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.

Day 168: Go! This is new.

““If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.”
John 14:15

“He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.””
John 14:21

“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.”
John 14:23

The word “keep” means: To practice; to do or perform; to obey. The proof of our love for Jesus Christ will be in keeping His commandments. Love is action! I pray that we repent, be baptized, receive the Holy Spirit and allow the Spirit to guide us on our journey with the Lord.
