The definition of accelerate is, to speed up, move faster, increase speed. We have heard countless words about God accelerating us in this season, and I believe this to be true as well. However, I want to challenge you. ARE YOU READY?? I mean REALLY ready??
So many of us, when we hear that word of God accelerating us, we rejoice, we get excited we praise God and we receive it by faith.
But are you ready?
Do you really grasp what that means? Many words have been attached to the scripture, Amos 9:13-14. “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” GOD’s Decree.Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel:
We always focus on the blessing part, but lets focus on this part, ‘“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up.”
Did you catch that last part, “You wont be able to keep up?”
You see God can accelerate us, but we have to prepare ourselves in advance for that acceleration. God does His part, but expects us to do ours. Are you ready to receive the blessings? Of course you are. We all are! But are you prepared, mentally, spiritually, and PHYSICALLY. If God were to open amazing opportunities for you, could you keep up? The word says, it will be so fast your head will swim. That means we must be prepared mentally. But God has given me a sense of urgency for the Body, literally the physical body as well as the Church.
IT IS TIME TO PREPARE YOUR BODY. It is time to get healthy, so that you can be ready for the acceleration. If I get on the treadmill and start walking and stay at that pace I am fine. However, if I (accelerate) the speed suddenly and start running, how long can I do it? Well it depends on how much I have prepared my body. I might be able to keep that pace, or I might get so winded I have to stop, because its just too fast for what I can handle at the time. Or worst yet, I can seriously injure myself, due to lack of training.
The Word says, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 You were bought with a price, therefore honor God with your bodies.”
God begin to convict me of this! This body is a loaner. If I am to do all that God has called me to do, then I need to do my best to feed it healthy and keep it healthy. It grieves my heart that so many people are sick because of their own destructive behaviors of overeating.
We have indulged the flesh for so long and it is, “socially acceptable.” I mean everything we do revolves around food. We have made food an IDOL. We can’t do this anymore. Friends, life is short, and God is indeed moving things quickly. But I would hate for our destiny to be cut short, because we can’t keep up, due to our own selfish indulgences and neglect.
Don’t trade your inheritance for a bowl of soup.
So again, I ask you. “ARE YOU REALLY READY FOR ACCLERATION?”
