Preparing for Increase - Cal Pierce
This year, 2014, is the year of the open door. Next year, 2015, is the year of convergence. What does this look like?
The year of the open door is a time for vision, planning and strategies. It’s the time for accessing heaven for Kingdom strategies to fulfill God’s plans on earth. It starts with vision. In Proverb’s 29:18, it says, “Where there is no vision, My people perish.” The word vision here means revelation of prophecy. In other words, God’s people are not hearing what the Spirit is saying to His people. The word perish means to give up or refuse to move forward. When we are not hearing from God, we become discouraged and give up. God gives vision to those who walk in the Spirit. Vision sees by the Spirit. Vision sees what is not, so that it can be. Vision sees supernaturally what is to come into the natural. When I developed real estate, I would not buy a lot until I had vision of the building that was to be built there. From my vision, I drew up a plan and developed a strategy to implement the plan. If I had no vision for the lot, I had to give up on moving forward.
When vision is backed up by plans and actions or strategies, Kingdom success is set up. When your vision becomes greater than your provision, the Kingdom is set up to arrive on earth. Sometimes we look at what we have to determine what God can do. God wants to teach us to draw on what He has rather than what we have. Too often our provision limits what God can do.
In 2015, we will see a convergence to bring together all of the Kingdom resources to achieve the fullness of the plans and strategies God gives us. These plans and strategies will be like a magnet that draws provision out of His Kingdom. God will back up His mandate given in Matthew 6:10, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
God will always link Kingdom provision to Kingdom vision for the fulfillment of His will on the earth. It is set up in heaven, waiting to arrive on the earth by a Kingdom that He has placed within every believer.
Eph. 2:10, “For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
We are created for good works. God has already prepared those good works for us that we should walk in them. This is the year for our vision to be established so that we can access heaven and receive divine plans and strategies. It’s time to be prepared so that we will have God’s provision to establish His Kingdom here as it is in heaven.
