As I shared in my NYE broadcast about the change of seasons for SLG, one of the things on the table for 2018 is to deal with the time and space challenges we have in the field.
In the office, there is a very high dominion over time and an over-the-top dominion in terms of space. But, that does not extend to the volunteers. When someone offers to walk with us in some project, they usually get taken out through devouring of time. So we need to figure out a way to raise the water table of authority in this area for the whole Tribe.
I plan on using a number of tools, this blog being one. I am going to go through Scripture for as long as the grace is there, pulling out clear vignettes of where God supernaturally aligned time and space to advance His kingdom.
My hope is that as we meditate on these Biblical stories, it will make a difference.
Any time you see a parallel to that Biblical story, in your life and can celebrate it in the comments to the blog, it will enrich the process.
For example, Sarah’s getting pregnant was a time/space issue. In this case, my opinion is that God blocked the alignment for decades preventing conception. I just talked with a lady today who tried so hard to get pregnant and nothing happened. Then she got some healing and the next month she got pregnant.
She is quite sure God delayed her pregnancy until she had gotten past a milestone, because once the cleansing was done, her body was flawless in conceiving and carrying a child to term.
So this one/two punch of Biblical example plus contemporary illustration of the same picture will start us on our journey toward high corporate authority of rightfully aligned time/space.
On an individual basis, I generally shoot for 100,000 right actions, building authority over 20 years. That means 5,000 thoughts and actions per year or more than a dozen a day. In order to change the spiritual climate for our Tribe, I anticipate needing far more than that.
Hence I will be beating this drum fairly relentlessly. Spiritual authority does not just happen. You have to focus intently on the truth in the Word and marinate your spirit and soul in those Biblical pictures, then link them to daily life.
Fortunately, drumming is something I know how to do!
For those of you who do Facebook, I am going to open a whole new page that is devoted just to time/space stories. These will capture anything that we see during the week, whether it is related to a recent Biblical story or not.
