Recently, in a time of prayer God began to speak to me about the month of May. Many people are experiencing what seems to be a holdup, like a roadblock or a sudden halt. However, I️ believe God gave me three key words for the month of May and going forward.
The first word the Lord spoke to me was the word "advance." The second word the Lord gave me was "accomplish." And the third word the Lord spoke to me was "accelerate."
I️ live in Texarkana, Texas, and Dallas is only about a 2.5-hour drive from here. There is one little bend in the road about 45 miles down the road on the way, and then it is just a straight shot from there all the way to Dallas. God often uses this picture to speak to me because once I️ make it around that one bend in the road, I️ am able to advance and start to accelerate. I️ believe in the month of May. many people are going to make around a bend, come around a corner in the Spirit and start to advance, accomplish and accelerate in all that God has called them to do. God will advance you, but we must play our part in order to accomplish what He has destined for us. This is a season where you need to advance.
I believe the Lord spoke to me the word "accomplish" because we are to be doers of the word, not just hearers only! If only a fraction of the people who have words from the Lord would activate them by becoming a doer, then the whole world would be changed by what would be accomplished. You may be asking yourself, "What's the holdup?" But maybe it's you! What are you doing with what God has spoken to you? It is our responsibility to take what God has spoken to us and has empowered us to do and do it. In order to accomplish anything for the kingdom of God, we must be willing to fast and pray like it all depends on God and work like it all depends on us.
In order to accelerate, we must put our foot on the gas. This is not a season to passively coast through life; it is time for the body of Christ to put our foot on the gas and start accelerating toward the things of God. I️ believe there is a supernatural wind of the Holy Spirit that is going to come behind many in order to help them accelerate. It is like a sailboat that has put its sails out and can only accelerate once the sails have caught the wind. I️ believe this is a season where many people who are actively pursuing the calling of God on their lives will experience the wind of God at their back to accelerate them into their destiny.
I️ believe the word of the Lord for this month is to advance, accomplish and accelerate. Many will move on the prophetic words that have been spoke over them, and the wind of the Spirit will bring acceleration to move us into a powerful season of the kingdom being advanced.
