Dear Powerful Pastor,

Happy New Year!

I am using my book Victorious Mindsets as a devotional and I was really struck by the eighth devotion - "I Am Moving Forward in Life." I believe it is a now word for us as leaders and our people. Here is how it begins:

“And the LORD said to Moses, ‘Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward’” (Exodus14:15). There is a time to pray; and surprisingly, there is a time not to pray. This was the experience of the children of Israel in Exodus 14, and it is also often our experience. A stationary train can be prevented from moving forward by a small board, but a moving train can go through a brick wall. Like locomotives, moving people create breakthrough in and around them. This “breaker anointing” exists in the lives of forward moving people. Click here for the rest of this.

Our Lent Negativity Fast/Positivity Feast is a powerful way for people to move forward. It is not just a fast, but it is a 40 day school to equip our people with the beliefs and practices for internal victory to overcome insecurity, criticism, being easily offended, victimhood, and a whole host of other issues. The Fast uses the book Igniting Faith in 40 Days and is free to participate in, but there are advanced levels for maximum breakthrough and equipping. Click here if you want to information on leading a group through the Fast, including a discount on Igniting Faith in 40 Days and other offers. 

Unreasonably Optimistic, 

Pastor BlogI am more focused on my personal growth than in bringing change to those I am called to influence.

The way we see the world is entirely based on our own perceptions. In order to change a given situation, we must change ourselves, and in order to change ourselves, we must be able to change our perceptions.
