Take the Final Step
by Lonnie Mackley
My dear one, you have done well and you have made good progress in your growth and work of purification and healing. Many things have been accomplished over the years and now you stand at the day of graduation and promotion, but first you must take the final step into complete obedience in the last things that need to be changed. This is your day to take all that I have taught you and to put it into practice by letting go of all old idols of sin and by fully forgiving all who have wronged you in the past.
You have clung to many things over the years because you were afraid and because you did not know how to fully trust in Me, but now you have reached a sure place of maturity and faith where you no longer need these things. Even little children are given much grace because of their ignorance and inexperience but sooner or later they must grow out of childish things and walk as an adult. You are no longer a spiritual child but rather you are a spiritual adult so the time has come for you to walk in it accordingly.
Do not be afraid to take this final step My child, for many good and wonderful things await you on the other side of your choice to fully comply. I have done all of this work so that I could not only trust and bless you, but more importantly so that I could flow through you in power so that many would believe and be saved. Do you remember many years ago when you asked for my power to help people? Well now you know what it takes to prepare for it. Go forward now and take the final step of obedience.

This is the hour of the rise of the modern day circuit rider. These will be persons that will forsake the comforts of the hour to preach the gospel to the ends of the earth. Young men and women who will lay down any right to earthly pleasure to obtain the pleasures of heaven on earth. I have always been amazed at the men and women who preached during the Methodist revival. Many of them preached circuits in their lifetime. They would go from town to town on horseback preaching in houses, on haystacks and in General stores. They didn't care much where they preached unless the gospel was being released and people's lives were being transformed.
Jesus, as a rabbi, chose disciples into whom He would pour His life — not just teach them information, but disclose His heart. These disciples observed Him in every setting. They had backstage passes to His most intimate moments. They were welcomed into His private dealings. Jesus' disciples — with all this up close access — made a connection between His life of prayer and His life of power, and they asked Him to teach them to pray.
The wind of the Holy Spirit is always blowing, but there needs to be something for that wind to "blow into". God looks for us to put up our sails that His wind might blow into our sails to take us where He wants us. When we step out in new ways it is like putting up our sails for the winds of His Presence. It takes some effort on our part to find out just how to put up those sails. In our times with God the light of revelation gives us guidance on just what to do. God inspires us to do things that His wind might find something to blow upon. Sometimes it may seem like we are putting up our sails but the wind is not blowing. Persistence is necessary to find His wind, discovering what works and where the wind is blowing.
