The Lord Woke Me Up This Morning To These Words...
⏰For the past two days, I kept catching 22 on the clock... yesterday, 4.22.21, I had on my chosen tv series shirt, “Come and See,” and interesting enough...
22 biblically represents revelation, insight, light, and keys (Isaiah 22:22) 👀.
God is speaking!
The Lord woke me up this morning to the words…
A fresh start!
For the last two weeks, I’ve been hearing:
It’s time to go (in urgency; not to panic, but to start putting things for this phase of the journey)
“The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:1-3 NLT)
I feel like the Lord is saying:
Don’t worry about who can not go. He is sending new people to surround you where you are headed. Where you are going, everyone can’t be a part of it.
REST! It’s an internal posture and place of relationship. This deep place of obedience, surrender, peace is needed for the next phase.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me, and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me, and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28-30 MSG)
Breathe. This last season attempted to steal our breath, peace, and focus, but the focal point was to keep our eyes fixed on God through the valley of the moment. Breathe. Inhale His goodness. Exhale the doubt and fear.

Guards are changing! Your position is changing. A new clarity to your identity has just arrived. The past does not bind you, your mistakes, or the opinions of others who “knew” you. You are not who you were yesterday. Today, God is calling you into the unknown. Will you answer with courage? Will you forsake what is comfortable? Will you go and not look back?
🗣 God affirms your identity! He uses people around you as a training ground! Some come to disrupt... others come to partner.
👉🏾 Today is the day you start fresh! GETS TO MOVING! We got places to be, people to influence, and atmospheres to shift.
