Doug Addison

There is a clear connection between what you think about yourself and reaching your highest calling. Let’s look at three key ways to harness your thoughts to bring dynamic change resulting in a powerful destiny and a better life.

First, we need to unpack the biggest destiny-derailer: Negative thoughts.

You are not your negative thought
Here is what I mean. Negative forces want you to believe bad things about yourself like: “I’m depressed. I’m worthless. I can’t change. I’m stupid. I’m ugly. I’m such a failure…” the list could go on and on.

It is important to realize that your thoughts, feelings and behaviors are situational and you can change them. The reality is that feelings and behaviors are not who you really are. You may struggle with your thoughts, but that is not your identity in Christ. Most people don’t see that there is a direct connection between the way they view themselves and their destiny.

“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7a, NKJV

Many of the thoughts and behaviors we battle daily have a root cause: something we have done, knowingly or unknowingly, or things that were done to us. Healing these emotional wounds can be a process. If you commit yourself to the journey, you can overcome them. It is part of your destiny to find healing and live healed.

Keys to powerful positive thoughts and destiny:

1. Diffuse the power of negative thoughts by inviting God in
My life turned around for the good when I realized that I spent too much time beating myself up for having negative or lustful thoughts. I remember the day that I invited God to walk with me like a loving father would. I prayed and asked for an extra measure of grace to get me through each day. Surprisingly, when I stopped focusing on the negative thoughts and talked to God about them as they were happening, they began to lose their power over me and eventually became less of a driving force in my thought life.

 2. Don’t beat yourself up
Another key to recovery is not beating yourself up. When you invite God each moment into your imperfection, he is not surprised by your thoughts or behavior. God loves you just the same. Be gentle with yourself while you change. Learn to enjoy your life even though you are not yet perfected. Progress toward your destiny is what you want.

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4 NIV

3. Don’t live in the recovery room
We live in a therapeutic society with a diagnosis for just about everything. When you start worrying about your dog suffering from Separation Anxiety Disorder, you know there is an over-focus on labeling people and situations. There is value in recognizing negative patterns. I am not trying to downplay the effects of pain, addiction and abuse.

But we need to find a way to identify the negative pattern, get healed and leave the recovery room so your identity is in the new life God has given you, not the old life that tried to destroy you.

These keys will help you take daily steps straight to your destiny. Believe it!

Blessings,

Doug Addison
October 15, 2014

Ten-four (10-4) is a radio communication meaning “message received.” On October 4th (10/4), the last day of Yom Kippur, I was awakened at 2 am. God began to speak to me, making sense of things that have been happening and revealing some things to come.

Did you hear God? The Jewish holiday from Rosh Hashanah through Yom Kippur is a season that many people can hear God more clearly. Don’t be disappointed if you did not hear God or have a spiritual experience. Sometimes subtle things happen that we do not pick up.

I have found that I hear God more clearly during this season but it is often the weeks before and weeks after. Remember God is outside of time and sometimes answers to our prayers seem delayed to us.

Radical steps needed
This is a time when you will need to take radical steps to get radical results. At the level the enemy has come against you, you will want to push back with the same intensity. Expect an increase in your spiritual gifts, dreams, visions, and supernatural encounters. This will open the opportunity for you to step up to a new level and see results for your efforts.

I completely understand it is not easy when you are sick, down or discouraged. When I was sick with Lyme disease last year, I did not have the strength to do anything. But consider finding people who will help you. Take anything you can get!

As I have been sharing this word from God with people everywhere I go, they give me a long list of reasons why they cannot do it. There is new power being released right now to break through, so take advantage of it and watch what happens.

Worship breaks things OPEN
There’s a new door open so come on up! It’s time to rise above the things that have held you back. God is speaking through music.

“After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.’” Revelation 4:1 NIV

God’s voice sounded like a musical instrument and you can expect God to speak to you through music. New doors and gates are opening right now over your life.

There is new freedom in worship. I had a dream in which I was on stage with a well-known worship leader and he started playing “Free Bird” on slide guitar. He played with intensity until something new began to open in the spiritual realm.

I knew it was time to press in and rise above because as he played it, something new opened. Praising God in the midst of adversity breaks things open (Psalm 43).

New sound from Heaven revealed
I have published several prophetic words recently stating that God is releasing a new sound from Heaven. Many have been searching for it wondering if it is a certain type of musical instruments or style. Yes it is, but it is not limited to that.

I recently noticed a new style of worship music emerging. In fact, this new style has irritated those who do not understand it. Many people say they do not like the new worship music mentioning the word “I” as opposed to the songs’ lyrics being about “Him.”

A few decades ago John Wimber and the Vineyard introduced the world to worship being about HIM and not us! God’s presence would show up strongly when we sang “to Him” and not “about Him.”

Just as in the time of the early Vineyard, things are shifting once again over worship music. Now there is a very strong presence of God coming when we declare who we are “in Him.” These are called declarations or decrees and the songs often have the words “I” or “we” in them.

Don’t mistake this new sound and movement as being self-centered. It is very Christ and Heaven-centered as it powerfully brings God’s presence on Earth as it is in Heaven.

This new sound coming from Heaven right now is declaration-based. As we agree with Heaven’s sound and declare who we are, watch as a powerful anointing comes enabling us to be all God created us to be!

God is activating angels to help you
Angels have been assigned to you and your family to accomplish your life purpose. Often, we are not aware of this so these angels are not activated in their assignments for you.

“In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; he is more awesome than all who surround him.” Psalm 89:7

God spoke to me that there is a “council of holy ones” around each of us and He is making you aware of them. These are angels that are assigned to our family and generational lines. God is bringing His light of justice and the council of angels has been assigned to you to bring you closer to Him and open the doors to something new.

New revelation
New revelation is flowing for your situation through December.  This revelation will bring about a course change that will align you with your destiny.

“So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.” Ezekiel 3:2

Expect this sweet, new revelation to bring about changes in your course. As it comes, it will bring new connections, deeper insight, strategies, strength and encouragement. You will have a greater understanding on your next steps for January 2015 as you act on what God says over the next few months.

Flying dreams
For months I have been having repeated dreams where I am trying to teach people to fly but they don’t believe they can.

Most of them have “grounded” themselves by their belief systems or by over-interpreting something God had spoken to them and pulled back too far. Others have no idea the season has changed and there is new freedom to fly.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 NKJV

For those who have been waiting, the season has shifted so you can now take new steps and expect strength to replace weariness. Try it for yourself and take a step to rise above your situation and get into your destiny at a higher level.

November 2013 turnaround
God showed me that things happened to many people in November 2013 that looked strange and almost opposite to what you expected. But fifteen months from November 2013 (February 2015) you will see a turnaround.

7-year cycle
God spoke to me that many people are in a seven-year cycle that started in 2001 and strange things happened again in 2008. It is time to prepare for a total turnaround coming in 2015.

Look back to 2001 and 2008. The tragedy of 9/11 took place in 2001 and the major crash of the housing industry and economy in the U.S. in 2008. These occurred seven years apart. In my life, these particular years also coincide with difficult times.

Daniel studied the writings of Jeremiah and determined that the desolation of Jerusalem would only last 70 years (Daniel 9:2). He was able to pray, fast, and respond according to a cycle of time. There is a major change for the good coming in 2015. Expect repayment for the losses of the past.

 Prophetic tidbits
Curses are being broken over you that were placed there by doubters and naysayers. Watch for physical healing to start happening in dreams. You will also notice spiritual blindness lifting off of people around you between now and December 2014. There is a new openness to the supernatural, dreams, and spiritual things.

Overall expect changes, changes, changes!

Blessings,

doug-sig

Think You Blew Your Destiny? Not Too Latehttp://dougaddison.com/2014/10/think-you-blew-your-destiny-not-too-late/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/10/think-you-blew-your-destiny-not-too-late/#comments Thu, 09 Oct 2014 12:00:42 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6486 Hitting The Bulls EyeThink You Blew Your Destiny? Not Too Late

Doug Addison

Have you ever felt you missed your destiny with God? Well, take heart. You’re not alone and in fact, it is not too late. Read on to see what you can do right now to jump back into your destiny in God and learn from someone in the Bible who blew it.

Jesus’ offer
Let’s take a look at a great example of someone missing their destiny in the Bible. In Luke 18:18–25, Jesus was nearing the end of His ministry on earth with only a few weeks left before He was to fulfill His destiny by dying on the cross. A rich young leader asked Him what he should do to inherit eternal life. Jesus answered him with the steps he needed to take and then went on to tell him that he lacked one thing: he needed to give his money to the poor and follow Him.

Missing his big chance
The young man went away discouraged because it would have cost him all his wealth.

Some people think that Jesus was saying we should not have wealth. I see it from a different angle.

I think this rich young man had an opportunity to be close to Jesus and would most likely have been the replacement for Judas, who handled the finances for Jesus’s ministry. Jesus may very well have been trying to find a successor for Judas as one of the twelve disciples.

Fast-track
Since the young leader had not been following Jesus for three years like the rest, Jesus may have been trying to fast-track him into being a disciple. This would have required the man to quickly let go of things holding him back. Here, it was the love of money and his earthly possessions. So, the rich young man missed his finest destiny of being very close to Jesus when time was short.

God’s many chances
Although the rich young leader chose not to give up everything as Jesus asked, he could still achieve his destiny of being a follower of Jesus like many others. But he would not be fast-tracked and close to Jesus as a disciple.

If you feel like you blew your big chance to fast-track into your destiny, do not worry. God gives lots of chances, choices and help along the way.

How to jump back into your destiny in God
Finding and fulfilling your destiny is not as hard as you might think. Building your life on a firm spiritual foundation allows you to accomplish all that God has in mind for you.

Here are some very important steps to fast-track into your destiny:

  • Believe that you can achieve what God destined for you! Half the battle is in our head.
  • Look for things that ignite passion within you.
  • Take small steps consistently.
  • Find someone who is doing what you want to do and study what they have learned.
  • Do something today in the area you would like to pursue and read a book about it, do internet research, make a phone call, sign up for a class, or get some practical training. It is never too late.

What happened to the rich leader?
This young man may have suffered from what I call “Spiritual Identity Theft.” He told Jesus that he had obeyed all the laws and felt he was doing what was right. He knew there was a higher purpose in his life. Satan used a strategy of greed to hold him back from a greater destiny.

More help with your destiny
To help you find your destiny quicker, I have written a book called Spiritual Identity Theft Exposed. And I have other resources on destiny that will help you  by clicking here.

How to Get Out of the Box – Many Ways to be Creativehttp://dougaddison.com/2014/10/get-out-of-your-box-many-ways-to-be-creative/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/10/get-out-of-your-box-many-ways-to-be-creative/#comments Thu, 02 Oct 2014 12:00:25 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6449 Two Mail Dogs

How to Get Out of the Box – Many Ways to be Creative
Doug Addison

Are you wondering, like others, what does it mean to “get out of the box”? Creativity is key! Let me explain.

In the “box”
I was once much more creative with music, drawing and painting than I am now. For the longest time this frustrated me, because I thought I had lost my connection with this area of my life. Somewhere in my mind, I thought that for me to be creative I had to write songs, play an instrument, paint or get in touch with nature. Then I got busy with my career, and later, when I would return to one of these other creative outlets, the fulfillment I once had was not as strong as it used to be. I thought my creativity had died and I mourned the loss of a part of my life that was once so expressive.

My “box” limited me
There was a time in my life when I played my guitar on a daily basis and I wrote a song at least once a week. Now I play my guitar much less often and seldom write songs. I used to draw and paint and take long walks in nature as a way to stir creativity. Now I write training courses and speeches, and watch video clips on my laptop. I often take very long walks in airports looking for my gate. Though my life has changed, I have discovered my destiny along the way.

How are you going to break out of the box?

1. Feel free
In relating my experience, I am not trying to downplay these valuable means of creativity. I highly recommend expressing yourself in any way you feel free to do. As I write this, I am in my fifties and in the midst of a fast-paced lifestyle. Yet I am learning more about creativity and how to express this life-spring within me. Allow yourself to freely be creative.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.” Galatians 5:1 NIV

2. Look for something new
Several years ago I stumbled upon some gifts and talents that I had no idea existed in me. I discovered some things that I am good at and that gave me an incredible amount of fulfillment. I was surprised to find that my strongest gifts include influencing people through public speaking, writing and making people laugh.

Like most people, I dreaded public speaking and believed that I could not write books because I failed miserably in English class in high school. To this day I have difficulty with spelling and grammar, but I have found ways to work through my weaknesses. Though I have always been naturally funny, I never dreamed that I could actually do stand-up comedy on a stage with professional comedians!

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” Isaiah 43:19

You can find your own style of creativity too. Out of the box creativity partners the Holy Spirit with your talents, gifts and desires.

Doug Addison

Joey LeTourneau

Doug: Over the next few weeks it is a great time to hear from God. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is a two-day celebration starting on Wednesday night, September 24th. God spoke to me that a significant turnaround and a huge breakthrough for blessing will occur at Rosh Hashanah.

My friend Joey LeTourneau contacted me with a prophetic word from Haggai that totally rocked me. Immediately when I read the verses in Haggai something activated in me. I got a prophetic download and clarity came to me on several things.

From this day on, from this twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, give careful thought to the day when the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid. Give careful thought:  Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until now, the vine and the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not borne fruit.

“‘From this day on I will bless you.’” Haggai 2:18-19 NIV

Joey: This word from Haggai with a specific date according to our traditional, modern calendar of the 24th day of the 9th month aligns perfectly this year with the celebration of Rosh Hashanah 2014.

This is a powerful Kingdom alignment with what God is doing right now! The verses talk about how all the seeds have already been sown, as the barn is empty, and yet the vine, fig, pomegranate and olive tree still have not produced. But, that is all about to change!

Doug: Empty barns, vines, along with fig, pomegranate and olive trees that have not borne fruit represent our provision that has dried up over the past few years. Even though we have sown seeds and worked hard, we have not seen a return on all we have done. We are witnessing a divine turnaround with losses repaid this year and it is starting on September 24th.

Joey: We declare Heaven’s timing over the harvest and His bountiful provision in your life! God’s nature is the same today as it was during the context of this verse. There is an alignment happening right now during this Jewish feast between Heaven and Earth.

Many have grown discouraged as we have watched our barns empty from sowing, and yet our fields still seem barren. Let your hope be renewed, keep believing and apply your faith to every seed you have sown with Him already, and let your love be revived to give life to many, many more in the coming seasons!

He is bringing forth a divine harvest to empower your unique purpose and calling as part of the worldwide harvest we are now entering in.

Doug: Let’s agree together for this divine alignment in our lives, churches, businesses, cities and nations. From this day forward, let us receive the full blessing and unending flow from Heaven. You can respond to this by getting ready for radical changes. Ask God to repay you for any losses you have received. Also, trust that this time things are different.

Let the fun begin!!

Blessings,

Doug and Joey

Power of Two: Strategic Pairing of Gifts and Callingshttp://dougaddison.com/2014/09/power-of-two-strategic-gifting-and-callings/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/09/power-of-two-strategic-gifting-and-callings/#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 12:00:34 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6440 People try to connectPower of Two: Strategic Pairing of Gifts and Callings

Doug Addison

Ever wonder why God lines you up with certain people and not others? God is strategic when aligning people’s gifts and callings. The power of two extends to strategic business relationships.

There is power in combining the calling and resources of two unique people. Check out where Isaiah 11:2 gives a description of several aspects of the Spirit of the Lord:

  • The Spirit of wisdom and understanding
  • The Spirit of counsel and power
  • The Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord

Notice they are mentioned in pairs. By strategically pairing gifts and callings, God will take the effectiveness of your calling and increase it dramatically.

Godly designed matches

Husbands and wives can be a vitally important, specifically designed match to promote a key area of impact in God’s Kingdom.

This can mean that one spouse may take on a supportive role, enabling the other spouse to have a higher impact. Other marriages operate as a team. In Luke 10:1, Jesus sent out seventy-two of His disciples to minister, purposefully sending them in teams of two.

Making sacrifices and providing stability so that another person may serve God is super powerful. Not all ministry couples share the role of being in front of crowds.

My story

My wife, Linda, provides emotional support that I lacked for years. With her, I am now able to fulfill my higher calling. Although she is not up front ministering with me, she brings wisdom. I tend to operate in understanding the bigger picture of how things fit together. She has counsel and I operate in power (remember Isaiah 11:2 above?). There are many other areas where we complement each other’s gifts.

My challenge to you:

  1. Take a look at your own unique gifts, talents and desires.
  2. Now look at the people or businesses God’s surrounded you with right now.
  3. Where has God placed you to be matched up with the right people to increase your depth of knowledge, relationships, anointing?

God is increasing your power within this wonderfully crafted combination of you and another. Flow with God’s grace in it.

Another happily-ever-after God story

I know a man in ministry who became a widower a few years ago. God brought a woman to him who is much younger than he. She had been divorced years ago and was waiting for God to bring a new marriage to her. Their marriage was a strategically paired Divine Alliance. As they came together, their marriage was for the purposes of ministry and expanding God’s Kingdom. She is an intercessor, getting words of knowledge, while he has a prophetic gift. They minister together. As he teaches, she gets words of knowledge for ministering to people and for his writing.

Not all marriages will function this way, but there will be a dramatic increase in ones like this over the next few years.

This message is part of a revelation I received from an angelic encounter I shared with the public in my book Divine Alliances. To get deeper insight, you can pick up a copy at my online bookstore by clicking here.

Prophetic Word: Prepare for Sudden Impacthttp://dougaddison.com/2014/09/prophetic-word-prepare-for-sudden-impact/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/09/prophetic-word-prepare-for-sudden-impact/#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 01:00:08 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6783 Prepare for Sudden ImpactProphetic Word: Prepare for Sudden Impact

Doug Addison

September 14, 2014

 

Get ready for a sudden impact with destiny. God is moving in a greater way in your life throughout September and October. This is a time of promotion and expansion. Things God has stored up for you are being released now and the end result will be greater authority!

 

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

The Jewish New Year, called Rosh Hashanah, falls on September 24–26 this year. Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, is October 3–4 and is considered one of the most holy Jewish holidays. Even though we are no longer under the Law of Moses, God still operates on the Jewish calendar.

Historically, Jewish people believe that God examines our lives during the time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to see if we are ready for spiritual advancement or promotion to a new level of maturity. Whether you are aware of it or not, this is a time that you are able to hear God more clearly and gain direction.

 

God spoke to me that we will see a breakthrough during this time of September 24 through October 4.

What should we expect? Here are a few things to expect to happen over the next few months and into the new year:

  • Greater authority in prayer and with your words
  • Reconciliation of broken relationships and restoration of hope
  • Continuing rediscovery of lost inheritances and prophetic promises
  • Shocking turnarounds, as we brace for sudden impact!

 

Realignment that will bring new assessments

Expect to see movement, job changes and physical moves in some cases. God is realigning you for your new assignment coming. This does not mean that you have to move but you will see God’s movement in your life.

 

Prophetic sign: Arthur Burt dies

I wrote in my August 22nd blog that I have been having dreams where people who possess callings and mantles from God will begin to die. Arthur Burt was a revivalist in the U.K. and was given a powerful prophetic word from God in 1934 entitled: “And There Shall Be No Ebb.”

Arthur died August 28, 2014 at 102 years old. Bob Jones had prophesied that Arthur would see his 1934 prophecy come to pass in his lifetime. This is the year of the release of Arthur Burt’s life-long prophetic word and Bob Jones’s word of one billion people coming into the Kingdom. Both of these great men went back to Heaven this year.

The prophetic sign in Arthur’s death: he died at age 102 on 8/28. Psalm 102 is the cry to God to see Him move again. But 102:28 is a prophetic word for what is coming.

“The children of your servants will live in your presence; their descendants will be established before you.” Psalm 102:28 NIV

“And there shall be no ebb” 1934 prophetic word from Arthur Burt:

“It shall come as a breath …

And the breath shall bring the wind …

And the wind shall bring the rain.

And there shall be floods and floods and floods …

And torrents and torrents and torrents.

Souls shall be saved like falling leaves from mighty oaks swept by a hurricane.

Arms and legs shall come down from heaven …

… And there shall be no ebb.”

Just like Bob Jones’ prophecy that one billion young people will come–it is our descendants. Jesus said in John 12:24 that a seed must die and fall to the ground in order to produce many seeds. Watch for new revival strategies to come.

 

The prophetic word I released in November 2012

When you release as many prophetic words as I do, the downside is that people don’t remember them all. Here’s one of the more powerful words I have ever released. I have been talking about it over and over for the past few years.

On November 7, 2012 I received a visitation from the Holy Spirit and was shown God’s strategic plan that will unfold over the next four years.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 NIV

This is what the Lord says: “My ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts are not your thoughts. I am making a way and lining things up right now in this next season for a movement that is greater than any on earth. For I am calling the outcasts, the prodigals, the tattooed, pierced, the New Age, gay and lesbian and all the people and groups that have been rejected by my Church. I am calling them into my Kingdom and I will reveal myself to them.”

As the 44th President is taking office for another four years (from 2012 until 2016) it will be a prophetic sign of the fulfillment of many prophetic promises happening right now including Isaiah 44:4. God is moving on people who have been wounded by Christianity and we will see the beginning of a new movement happen.

“For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams.” Isaiah 44:3–4 NIV

We are in four years of repayment 

The Lord spoke to me, “Over the next four years (through 2016) I am going to do things that will surprise many people on the earth and set up an amazing movement and gathering in Jerusalem in 2017.”

God is going to raise up groups of unknown people to move in His power. Those who are not blinded with pride to think their doctrines and beliefs are the only way. God is moving on those who are not prejudiced against political parties, race, and people groups. God is resisting those who are blinded by spiritual and political pride.

 

Pride and Prejudice

Arthur Burt’s prophetic words talked a lot about the fact that God has been trying to move on the earth but the Church is in so much pride of their own beliefs that there is no room for the God of the unexpected.

What is holding back the next move of God right now is this: “We must repent of the pride and prejudice spirit against people that are different from us. This includes the New Age, gay, lesbian, certain political parties, and the tattooed and pierced to name a few.

 

The 29-year connection

In a dream last month I was taken back and shown the years 1929 and 1958. An angel showed me revelation that has been sealed away. 1929 was the crash of the stock market and the launch of the great depression. Then 29 years later in 1958 came an economic recession. 29 years later in 1987 the stock market crashed again!

29 years from 1987 will be 2016. God is releasing strategies right now for financial blessing. There is a blessing coming! The strategies for 2016 (part of the prophetic word I mentioned above) have been hidden but are now being revealed.

Also God is moving on 3 groups right now from 3 generations

Those born in 1929 and 1958 and those who are 29 years old this year or born in 1985. Both of these groups are going to experience a repayment and are carrying wisdom we need right now.

 

Ohio and Texas

I had a powerful dream that I was shown a map of the U.S. and the state of Ohio was placed at the most northern part of the state of Texas. In the dream I was flying out of Ohio that later became Texas and the two were joined as one.

Suddenly I was seeing an aerial view of the two states and Dallas (DFW) airport could be seen from outer space. God is taking things that you thought you had missed and bringing it back. God is doing something new in both of these states. Watch for unity to come and particularly something new in Dallas.

 

I realize this a long article, but I wanted to fit it all in. Revelation and wisdom is flowing from Heaven right now in the midst of times of turmoil and adversity.

With all the uncertainty, it is time to stand firm and do not be afraid! Watch for a rain of reconciliation, a wave of healing and a wind of change.

 

Blessings,

How to Get Your Children into Their Destinyhttp://dougaddison.com/2014/09/children-our-destiny/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/09/children-our-destiny/#comments Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:00:00 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6430 Children silhouettes holding hands up

How to Get Your Children into Their Destiny

Doug Addison

Did you know your destiny involves your children? For those who have children, we can get so focused on our own careers and spiritual lives that we may not realize that our children are our ultimate destiny.

With the right coaching and guidance, they can achieve much more than we could ever accomplish in our own lives. Grandparents, you grasp this easily.

I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams. Isaiah 44:3–4

A very powerful kingdom strategy is to help our children fulfill their own destiny.

Sadly, the statistics show that the majority of children who grow up going to church never return after they move from their parent’s home. This should be alarming to us and cause us to make a concerted effort to find out where we are going wrong.

Why are our children not interested in church? I believe that this young generation has such a high destiny and calling from God that they will experience opposition. Most kids who leave church don’t really have a problem with Jesus but somehow were not able to make the connection with their parents’ God.

This generation is looking for something very real. They must believe in what they do with all their hearts or they are not interested. Most Sunday schools and youth groups are not providing the connection and challenge they need.

Music and expression of who they are plays a big role in young people’s culture. They want to be understood and viewed as unique so they have special ring tones on their cell phones, particular songs on their Facebook pages, expressive photos on Instagram, significant tattoos and uncommon piercings.

The best way to help our children is to listen to them. Ask them specific questions about how they feel. Ask them to describe a type of church that they would like to attend. Help identify things that they are good at. These talents are often clues about their destiny.

Do their friends open up and share their problems with them a lot? Then they probably have a strong gift of counsel. Do they give freely to people in need? Then they may have a gift of compassion. Are they strongly opinionated and seem to buck the system? Most likely they are a leader in the making.

Years ago, my daughter was having difficulty deciding what she wanted to do with her life. I wanted her to pursue a higher vocation than she was in because of her intellect. She is smart, witty and has a lot to give. I started to point out the things that I noticed she is good at. I helped her to recognize her strengths and helped her see the God-given gifts within her. I also agreed to help her in any way I could and let her know that I would support and bless her in whatever field she decided to pursue. Within a short period of time, she began to get a clearer picture of what she likes and wants to do and it was more suited to her intellectual level.

Our children are our destiny! It helps to see that they are not only the future generation, but that our children can contribute now and we can help them.

How are you going to help them find new hope and purpose today? Pick just one small thing and watch it impact them like:

  • Learn to speak their language – what’s the new lingo?
  • Value their music – what’s their favorite tune?
  • Talk about their problems
  • Listen when they tell you stuff (even the most insignificant – if they are talking, it’s important to them) – just to name a few things we can try.

Enjoy watching their destiny unfold before you.

Blessings,
