Manifest Destiny was and is a controversial concept concerning westward expansion that was developed in the 1800s but that started as far back as 1492. In God’s system of government, however, Manifest Destiny is the certainty of the demonstration of the power of God. In this hour—the Kingdom Age, the Age of Grace, God wants His people to demonstrate who He is everywhere we go, by manifesting His heart, His love, and His power. If we will do it in this order, then 2017 will be known as a year of great demonstration—of not just talk, but ACTION, of not just movement, but UNCTION. God will always confirm His Word with signs following, and it is to be a year of “doing the stuff,” not just surmising and constant strategizing, but of flowing in confidence to live out the training that so many have had. Some do not need one more class, one more prophetic word, one more self-esteem boost to do what they already know to do. I sense The Lord saying: I will meet you at the end of your faith. I will be in your boldness. Proverbs 28:1 states, “The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.” This is an hour for you to know that you’ve come into the kingdom for such a time as this. This is an hour for you to step up, walk in, and live out your destiny and purpose like never before. Redeem the time. Don’t just read the steps. Demonstrate them. Don’t just read the book. Be the book.
Some will ask, “Where’ve you been all my life?” Humility and obedience will precede you, grace and truth will keep you, and the joy of The Lord is your strength. It’s time, it’s time, it’s time! Past time … but many have caught up with the purpose for their life, and the excitement is real for what is going to be displayed. It’s a new day. (You’ve heard this before.) It’s a new season. (You’ve heard that before.) So, what are you going to do about it? Step in! Step up! Step out! There are giants in the land … US! Remember the words of Joshua 1:8, and know it is your destiny to manifest Jesus everywhere you go, to reveal a Heart that still bursts with love to manifest His Son. Manifest Destiny. Selah.
