It doesn’t seem possible that our Aglow Worldwide Conference has come and gone. After months of planning and preparation, expectation and excitement, we have returned home with weary bodies, but soaring spirits! Every Aglow conference has its own uniqueness, but this particular gathering was filled with future, destiny, and purpose. We left Houston changed and ready to walk in new mindsets and a greater anointing.
In my last blog I talked about identity being the key to transformation, and transformation is about moving into the next stage of identity. Often, God uses prophetic words to bring us into a greater understanding of His view of us, which is usually something we wouldn’t have considered for ourselves. When a prophetic word comes, it gives us a glimpse of our future, even though we may not fully see it or understand it.
It is a fact! God uses ordinary people. Think about Abraham. He was a man born into a family that served idols. Neither his background or beliefs made him a likely person for God to choose for the purpose of recovering man from his sinful situation. At that time, Abraham wasn’t even a believer! Yet, God’s intention for him was that through him and his descendants, God’s authority and glory would be expressed in the earth. Amazing!
I believe that the year 2012 is a very significant year.
As I stated in my last blog post, the number 12 symbolizes divine accomplishment and governmental perfection.
This year is about the government of God arising in us. It is a time when heaven will be revealed on earth in a greater way through the people, the citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven, and the heirs of God.
For the last 8 years, we have been walking in a prophetic cycle that has been unfolding before us. It began in 2003 with the prophetic word spoken by Barbara Yoder. Those who were in attendance will well remember the response of the people. They began to run the building, forming battalions across the front of the platform. We were so moved by what God was saying to us about moving us out of an old, hidden place, we could no longer remain in our seats. It truly was a God moment and we were responding as best we could in that moment. We were coming to the understanding that we are a people on the move and God would continue to unfold the fuller meaning as we walked in response.
