Love you all, praying for you.
Some things just strike you as strange. How can the easiest thing in the world to do – also be the hardest thing in the world to do. It has to do with the opposition. The easiest thing in the world to do: PiVAT before dinner. It only takes 5 minutes, literally, it’s not difficult, it is not physically strenuous, it doesn’t take special skill, it’s something you’ve done many times before, it’s not painful, it’s immediately applicable, it’s eternally beneficial. So why is PiVAT before dinner the hardest thing in the world to do? Because your enemy is in full opposition to it. If you do PiVAT before dinner, you will receive God’s plan for you for tomorrow, and you will commit yourself to do it, you will get counsel in the night season from the LORD - He will confirm His plans and affirm you, you’ll be on the same page with your spouse, you will start the first thing in the morning – with the first thing God told you to do, you won’t miss anything He has for you today. You will walk in His will, and His purpose for you and His blessing. So why is it so hard? The devil will do anything he can to stop you from doing this. If you do PiVAT before dinner – you will definitely not miss your PRISM time tomorrow, or even today – at every time God has for you to come back to it, getting His revelation to transform your mind - and understand His will for you. If you do PiVAT before dinner, you will write down your testimony so you can have it on your lips – so you overcome! You will finish strong before the evening is over, you will get to bed at the time God has appointed for you. You will leave nothing undone, you will be focused on Jesus, and God’s will for you today, you will become skilled at ignoring distractions, fully focused on His best. You will be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. You will ingrain even deeper - your life-long commitment to fully obey – even in the little things. And God’s blessing will be on your house – your children, and their children after them. If you don’t do PiVAT before dinner – you may not get to it at all - your enemy will provide many distractions. It will likely be morning before you think of it again, or you’ll be too exhausted as you drop into bed. You will have not recorded and rejoiced in your testimony of His goodness today, you won’t get confirmation in the night season of what the Holy Spirit revealed during PiVAT before dinner, because you didn't do it. You’ll get up in the morning – wondering what God wants you to do, instead of already doing it! You may get up late and miss it again in the morning – and before you know it – the devil has you living again by your own plans and the priorities that others have for you – when God longs to give you His plans for you for today that will establish your success. So how do you make the hardest thing in the world – the easiest? Make it your never-miss habit. How? #1) Commit yourself out loud with your mouth - to always do PiVAT before dinner. Put on your PiVAT for today (“PBD” at 5:30 pm when you leave work. #2) Ask God to help you never miss! #3) Tell someone else your commitment and ask them to help you if you forget #4) Text your Daily Call Partner when you do it – “PiVAT done -Praise God!" (It will establish you, and encourage them). And #5) Absolutely Refuse to eat one bite of your evening meal – until you do PiVAT before dinner. If you forget your Conversation Log – do it in your phone, and as soon as you get home, transfer it to your Conversation Log. Nothing in life is more difficult than doing PiVAT before dinner – even when it's the easiest thing to do - because your enemy will do anything to distract you or stop you. He knows nothing is more important than you receiving God’s plan for you for tomorrow. How can you walk in His plans for your life, if you don’t even know His plans for you today? So is PiVAT before dinner - a religion? See I told you! Praying that you will not let the devil deceive you – I warned you He would do anything to stop you from PiVAT before dinner (your conversation with your Heavenly Father) – even trying to convince you that it’s religion. Any habit - you do religiously – that’s what makes it a habit. Occasional is not habit. Just because you do a habit religiously doesn’t make it religion. You get flowers for you wife every Valentines day – no one talks about religion then. God said exhort one another daily. A Daily Call helps you practically fulfill God’s instruction. It’s not religion, it’s relationship. God says "Call on me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things – which you do not know." PiVAT is not religion – it positions you in your relationship with God – to hear the great and mighty things He has for you! Nothing is better than hearing His voice – and walking in His plans! How would you know what they are – unless you ask? And why wouldn’t you ask every day. What day would you not want to know His will for you? Its where the blessing is!
Praying for you - that you will Commit yourself - out loud to PiVAT before dinner - for life! Praying that you will ask God to help you – that you will ask your spouse or roommate to remind you. Praying that you will take two seconds every time you finish PiVAT before dinner and text your Daily Call Partner – "PiVAT done! - Praise God!" - It will keep you accountable - it will establish you in faithfulness, and encourage them as well. Praying that you will not miss one thing that God has for you today – that you will be consistent in hearing and obeying his plans for you – and writing down the testimony of what God did as you are learning to obey – in the big things, and even the smallest thing. Praying that in the same way – you will have a set time - for life! every Sunday afternoon – to do PiVAT Weekly – PiVAT for this week – before the week begins. Maybe 3:00 pm, or right when you get home from church, or maybe before you watch the first minute of the football game. (Just hit the pause button, do your PiVAT Weekly – Get God’s Plan for you – and write down your testimony!) You can come right back to the game, and fast forward through all the commercials. The hardest thing in the world – becomes the easiest when it becomes your #1 Priority Habit. But I thought PRISM in God’s Word is more important. Do PiVAT before dinner – and your consistency in PRISM time will increase. Because you will know the specific times God told you to do it, and come back to it. If you’re too busy for PiVAT before dinner – you’re probably too busy for PRISM as well. Busy doing what? What could I be busy doing that’s more important than getting God's instruction for what I should do? (the way chosen for me, the way best for me). Praying that you will walk daily with someone on a Daily Call. God commanded it (Hebrews 3:13) for your own good – to bless you! It’s how you overcome! And if you have an opportunity to have a PiVAT Small Group – the encouragement you will receive is far more than you would expect. God will speak – every time! He’s just faithful like that. What if you and your best friends became complete obeyers! Your life and your future and your future generations - would completely change! So would theirs!
