I heard the Lord say, "Step Up. Step Up. Step Up." The Lord is encouraging some of you to step up, now, without delay.
This word is for those who are walking in humility with repentant hearts. This word is for those who seek the will of God first, not their own will. It is for those who are willing and who God has made able through the study of the Word.
"Step up" means it's time for some of you to come forward. Some of you have been hidden in a cave. You've been hidden in dark places, and it's time for you to step up, out and move forward. Maybe you've been hidden in the cave of persecution. Maybe you've been hidden in the cave of religion. But the Lord wants to bring you from religion to revelation—so It's time to step up, come forward and claim responsibility for the mandate on your life.
It's time to stop shirking your duty. It's time to shake off the fear. It's time to pursue your call. It's time to stop putting your commission aside to assist someone else while never fully doing what the Lord has called you to do. I heard the Lord say:
"It's great that you're helping other people fulfill their missions. That is what you should keep doing. But not at the expense or at the neglect of rising up and taking responsibility for the unique calling I've put on your life.
"For some of you, your calling is to be a helper. It is to be that intercessor. It is to be that prophet to the one. It is to be that counselor to the few. It is to be the teacher to the local body. But whatever it is that I've put in your heart in this season to do, it's time to step up and step into it. It's time to take a leap forward. It's time to step up and rise up."
