Love you all, praying for you.
Praise God - God working yesterday, open doors, His help, His grace, His faithfulness. I know that you are seeing these things too! Praise God! Praying that you will finish everything He told you to do this month... and seek Him for Next Month (PiVAT Monthly) He has plans for you for May - you can only walk in them if you ask Him. He will surely reveal - and they are Good...
God reminded me this morning – How quick is your turnaround time? How quick is your obedience? When God reveals something, how long does it take you to do it, implement it the first time? Abraham wasted no time. Early in the morning, Abraham got up, saddled his donkey… took servants, and Isaac and left for Mt Moriah.
There’s a pattern to obedience. 1) Revelation – God reveals something for you to do. 2) Initiation – How quickly do you do it the first time – Your Turnaround Time. 3) Replication – How soon do you repeat it – to get used to doing it – building a foundation. 4) Continuation – How long does it take until it’s your habit – continually – a permanent part of your character – added to your DNA – the revelation He showed you. Yesterday we talked about The Power Of Declaration. So how quickly do you activate that truth in your life? So you do what David did – that made him a man after God’s own heart.
Three things even right now - can help you make that “Power Of Declaration” truth shared yesterday – a quick turnaround. The three things are – PRISM P:Praise the WORD, Psalms 71, and the PRISM Topic: As For Me)
.1) PRISM – Praise The WORD -- start every day with Praise the Word. It’s Declaration Practice! It’s Praising God – AND committing yourself. Pick a Psalms Verse!
.2) Psalms 71 - A Great Chapter for Declaration Practice. This is an opportunity for a Quick Turnaround if you choose to do it right now. Declaration and Praise go together. As you praise the Word through this chapter, you will notice David’s Pattern of Declaration: (Who God is, What He does, What you will do.) I’m praying that you will make this your pattern of declaration also. This will form your heart, love for His Word will grow in you, A heart to Praise and Declare will grow in you, A heart of obedience will grow in you as you become a man after God's own heart – a woman after His own heart. Psalms 71 is a perfect example of David’s Declarations Pattern: But if you use Praise the WORD along with this chapter - Praise the Word will use David’s praise as your own – but also, Praise the Word will translate David’s prayers – into active Declarations - simply by inserting (You O LORD…) before the requests.
Here are the Declarations of Psalms 71: Just read them out loud, and you will be declaring Who God is, What God does, and what you will do…
Who God is:
You have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD (v5)
You are my rock and my fortress (v3)
(You O LORD) Are my Rock of Refuge – to which I can always go (v3)
You are my strong refuge (v7)
Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God (v19)
You who have done great things, Who, O God is like you? (v19)
What God does
(You O LORD) never let me be put to shame! (You never have! You never will!) (v1)
(You O LORD) rescue and deliver me in your Righteousness (v2)
(You O LORD) turn your ear to me and save me (v2)
(You O LORD) give the command to save me. (v3)
(You O LORD) deliver me from the hand of the wicked (v4)
You have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD (v5)
You brought me forth from my mother’s womb (v6)
(You O LORD) do not cast me away when I am old (v9)
(You O LORD) do not forsake me when my strength is gone (v9)
(You O LORD) are not far from me (v12)
(You O LORD) come quickly to help me (v12)
Since my youth, O God, you have taught me. (v17)
(You O LORD) do not forsake me, even when I am old and gray (v18)
You will restore my life again (v20)
From the depths of the earth, you will again bring me up. (v20)
You will increase my honor (v21)
You will comfort me once again (v21)
(You) have redeemed me! (v23)
What You will do
In you I have take refuge (v1)
You have been my hope (v5)
You have been my confidence since my youth (v5)
From birth I have relied on you (v6)
I will ever praise you (v6)
My mouth is filled with your praise (v8)
Declaring your Splendor all day long (v8)
But as for me I will always have hope (v14)
I will praise you more and more (v14)
My mouth will tell of your righteousness (v15)
My mouth will tell of your salvation all day long though I know not it’s measure (v15)
I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign LORD (v16)
I will come and proclaim your righteousness – yours alone (v16)
To this day I declare your marvelous deeds. (v17)
(I will) declare your power to the next generation (v18)
(I will) declare your might to all who are to come (v18)
I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, O my God; (v22)
I will sing praise to you with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel. (v22)
My lips will shout for joy – when I sing praise to you (v23)
My mouth will tell of your righteous acts all day long (v24)
The third thing that will help Your Turnaround Time on the “Power of Declaration” truth - Read out loud – the PRISM Topic - As For Me - This PRISM Topic is declaration practice! There is a power that is released when you put your words to something – when you declare it out loud, not only does it go into your heart – cementing your heart and resolve to obey – it is a declaration into the atmosphere! God’s Word never fails to produce something! Isaiah 55:11 So shall my Word be that goes out from my mouth; it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish that which I purpose, and will succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
Praying for you that your Turnaround Time will always be quick – on anything that God reveals, and that this Declaration truth and habit of David – that made him a man after God’s own heart – will become your habit too – until God’s Word put into your heart – makes you also, a man after His own heart.
