I Am calling you to higher levels of wisdom and deeper levels of intimacy. It is vital you not only know about Me historically, but know ME…know Who I Am, My heart, and how I operate in love so it will be easy to recognize where I Am at work and where I’m not.


The goodness of God is not just seen in the past, but is calling from the future. People who fight for what can be, understand that God says their destiny is much greater than their history.

Fear of the future and a fascination with the past are the enemies of upgrade. It was the same way in Jesus’ day. He turned to the religious folks of His generation and called it like Babe Ruth pointing to the sky behind left field before hitting it out of the ballpark.

“You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.” – John 5:38-39

In other words, Jesus said they were willing to know the scriptures or things written long ago, but were not willing to know Him, right then in the present. They knew the Word, but wouldn’t move forward to relationship with Him. Is that you?

If it is, you have settled or history and given up on experience. You have settled for revelation without accepting the invitation to personally encounter the One the Word is talking about. You won’t move forward.

The religious leaders of Jesus’ day did not recognize Him because He was not in the same place working the same method as they were. They wouldn’t move forward and it cost them everything.

But that’s not you! Your destiny is greater than your history and you’re not afraid to go for it!
