    Hebrew month of Cheshvan
    October 19 - November 16, 2020
    Cheshvan - Re-imagined...

    While watching a movie Sunday evening, an energizer battery advertisement came on. It was the energizer bunny beating on his drum and outlasting everyone. There was something different about this ad. It showed a pile of bass drums off to the side. The bunny had broken the drum skin on each of these! He had so much energy, he broke through several drums. Not only did he have great energy, he had power that broke through. I stood up in my living room and said, "that's Cheshvan, the month of the anointing.”

    This month we celebrate the perpetual power of God. The month we break through. The month of renewed energy to keep on moving past everything trying to beat us to the finish line...and it's all about the 9-volt Spirit battery inside. There are 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit that provide us the energy and power and "volts" to push through whatever lies before us in the days ahead. We will outlast anything and everything that is competing for the win in our future because, "as He is so are we in the earth." If we are born again we have the "9-volt" Spirit battery on the inside and the gifts needed for this season of life.

    The Amplified Bible is so descriptive in the explanation of each gift. Check it out:

    Now there are distinctive varieties and distributions of extraordinary power distinguishing certain Christians due to the power of divine grace operating in their souls by the Holy Spirit. And there are distinctive varieties of operation to accomplish things but it is the same God Who inspires and energizes them all in all.

    • To one is given the power to speak a message of wisdom.
    • To another the power to express a word of knowledge.
    • To another, wonder-working faith.
    • To another the extraordinary power of healing.
    • To another the working of miracles.
    • To another the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose.
    • To another the ability to discern between true spirits and the false ones.
    • To another various kinds of unknown tongues.
    • To another the ability to interpret such tongues.

    It is the same Holy Spirit Who distributes, activates and operates these different gifts as He chooses for each believer.

    Like the 9-volt battery inside the energizer bunny, we have gifts inside of us ready to be activated with extraordinary power and energy! He has given us everything we need for life and Godliness.

    Because of covid, everyone is talking about a new normal and how to deal with it. Here's our new normal.

    • All the energy I need - is my new normal.
    • Unlimited power - is my new normal.
    • Positioned to overcome - is my new normal.
    • Staying in front - is my new normal.
    • Prosperity - is my new normal.
    • Healing - is my new normal.
    • Joy unspeakable - is my new normal...and the new goes on...

    We never want to miss an opportunity to express our thanks for those who intercede, to those who stand as watchmen, to those who give, to those who encourage and to those who remain faithful to the Lord no matter what. Be blessed, be energized, be activated. Let the Spirit voltage of those 9 volts course through you to be used of God in incredible ways.

    Never Run Down - Our New Normal!
