“What Is the Seismic Shift God Wants to Make in Your Heart?”
Nathan Shaw, Dunedin, New Zealand
Two thousand years ago, John the Baptist and Jesus initiated a seismic shift that still reverberates today. They both came with a simple message—repent for the Kingdom of God is here. The earth was forever changed. There was no going back. I believe 2020 is also a year of seismic shifts. The world is in transition. We can expect to see dramatic shifts spiritually, economically and politically.
This Crisis Is Revealing Hearts
Presently, much of the world is in crisis because of the coronavirus. Undoubtedly the economic impact of this will be huge. It’s not possible to shut down whole economies without it having a major impact.
As God’s people, we are here to effect a difference. God is concerned about the economies of nations and He calls us to decree economic miracles as well as creative, new financial strategies straight from Heaven. Some things that people say can’t be done, will be done. (Photo via Unsplash)
I have heard a saying, “Crisis reveals and absolute crisis reveals absolutely.” Crisis and change have a way of exposing that which is in the heart. This is true of individuals, organizations, governments and nations. The true nature of many leaders, organizations, governments and nations will be revealed. Corruption and nobility of character will be brought into the light and help shape the destinies of nations in positive ways. The overall long-term positive impact will be far greater than the short-term negative impact caused by economic difficulty. Short-term pain will give way to long-term gain. Pray that that which remains hidden will be brought out into the light.
Seismic Shifts at Deep Heart Levels
The coronavirus situation can easily blind us to the bigger things that are happening in the spirit. We are in a major transition and there will be no going back. The days of passive, powerless Christianity are coming to an end. God’s Kingdom is life-transforming. It causes seismic shifts at a deep heart level. The impact of the Cross of Jesus Christ is yet to reach its full crescendo. Online charts reveal official records of the number of deaths from the coronavirus in each nation. However, I believe a day is coming when online charts will record the number of confirmed resurrections in each nation! (Photo via Unsplash)
Satan manipulates the areas of spirituality, economics and politics to bring people into bondage. God operates through these avenues to bring people into freedom. God’s global agenda is much greater than satan’s global agenda! The Gospel of the Kingdom will have an unprecedented impact in the nations. But first, it will have an unprecedented impact in the lives of God’s people.
The most important question you can ask yourself right now is this: What is the seismic shift God wants to make in my heart?
