Beloved, are you stepping out on faith? If so, the Lord wants me to warn you today: Be prepared for the double-step!
Here's the word of the Lord that I received this afternoon:
Some of you–you'll know who you are–are stepping out in faith right now. You are either stepping out to grow yourself, OR you're stepping out to help someone else grow. Either way, you're doing it for the Kingdom.
But the Lord wants you to know that, as you step out in faith, He is going to use this opportunity to grow you and stretch you farther than you would have stretched on your own. As you step out in faith, He is actually going to pull your foot farther out than you had planned to place it.
This is the double-step of God.
The Lord is going to give you opportunity to double-step into greater faith and greater works. He is with you as you take your first step, but you should expect as you step that there will be a little nudge:
- A little nudge to do a little more for God;
- A little nudge to be a little more generous than you had intended to be;
- A little nudge to push yourself farther than you intended to go.
That little nudge is the nudge of God.
The Lord is a gentle “Nudge-er” who does not force you. He will not force you to step with Him. But He WILL give you the opportunity you have been looking for …
… except that He will disguise that opportunity as an opportunity to serve.
Just be aware: He must increase. His government must increase. And the Father desires to use you as His Kingdom vessel. He desires to use you–and this opportunity that stretches you–to build and enhance His Kingdom on the earth.
If you obey the nudge, it will be uncomfortable.
However, if you decide to obey anyway, you will feel excitement fill your bones. You will soon feel yourself flying with the Spirit of God. You will feel yourself inch even closer to breakthrough, for you walk on miracle territory when you double-step onto the ledge of faith.
Many of you felt this nudge just this afternoon. It came at an unexpected time, but you already accepted it.
Others of you will feel it shortly. When it comes, just be aware that the Lord is with you. In fact, He calls you His “favored one,” for it is only those who are strong in Him that He offers this double-step to. Until you are strong enough to handle it, He stretches you ONE step at a time. The very fact that He is offering you a DOUBLE-step means that He is offering you ACCELERATION–and that He believes you are fit to handle it.
The Lord is saying to you today: “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
I hear Him also saying now: “You've come so far with Me; don't hold back now. Continue your example; continue your faith-walk; continue to press aggressively toward Me. You have already entered into the joy of your Lord; seek to obey Me more, and you will find that I am right where I have always been–inside you, beside you, and surrounding you.”
Expect the double-step of God. Allow Him to stretch you faster.
If you do, you will not be disappointed with the results.
