Take heed to yourself... (Deut 4v.9); Therefore take good heed to yourselves... v.15; take heed unto yourselves... v.23

     The New Testament definition of "take heed" gives a set of meanings for take and a set for heed. Both sets major on vision and today the Lord is majoring on paying attention to your vision.

     Sometimes I get so busy responding to life's latest ping-pong volley, I forget to fight to move forward in my vision. "What vision?" is my puny response when I am jumping from one thing I have to do to another. Can I tell the truth? But if I don't try to live it, speak it, and daily nurture my belief in my vision, who will take heed to it for me?

     The "take" in "take heed" comes from the Greek word skop. Think of a rifle scope. It means to take aim, to mark, consider, look at. When was the last time you considered the vision God has given you for your life?  If your vision was born of God, it is destined to overcome the world and to flourish. Maybe one day you'll have an army of grateful, passionate people praying for your vision to grow and prevail. But right now, the praying and the passion are your lonely Maytag-repairman job! 

     Yes, pray for your pastor's vision, but also pray for yours. Just as He set Adam in a garden to tend it and make it grow, so the Lord has set you in the garden of your life. Can you see where one day you'll put the oak grove? And over there you can add the apple orchard to feed a multitude on fresh truth? Set your sights.

      The "heed" in "take heed" comes from the Greek word "blepo" - which means to look on or look at, behold, beware, perceive or regard. Can you see it? In Gen. 13 v.14, God told Abram,  "Lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are..." to see the land He would give to him. Can you see your vision from where you are today? Taking heed to yourself is not just for yourself, but for the Glory of God!

from past baggage
old sin
And Lot also, which went with Abraham, had flocks and herds and tents. And the land was not able to bear them, for their substance was great...And Abraham said,
"Lot, separate thyself, I pray thee, from me." Genesis 13v.5; ...forgetting what lies behind, straining for what lies ahead. Phil.3v.13
           You can't take it with you. "It" means your (unfruitful) way of thinking, your old " it ain't working" way of working. Abraham's nephew was a dear relative, they had so much in common, so many sweet or tough memories shared. How long before we get God saying, "Separate from your old way. There is a new way."
        As always with God, you must obey the first step (separate, leave the baggage, drop it,) before the land under your foot's path for the 2nd step appears.
And the Lord said unto to Abraham AFTER that Lot was separated from him:
Lift up now thine eyes from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward. For all the land that thou seetst, to thee will I give it...v.14-17
FATHER:  Show me Your new way today! I PRESS TOWARD THE PRIZE!
Love you guys more than you know,

Will you keep silent at this time, Queen Esther? Now that you have prevailed before the King and your petition for deliverance for you and your nation from the evil Haman Hillary, will you decree, reign and use your authority? Not many days hence, about 30, the inauguration of the President God chose and we died for (died to pizza and blueberry pancakes, died to distractions to cry out, some died to fear of voting Republican for the 1st time!)) will be inaugurated. 
     Though the media is attempting to spread dishonor and rebellion,your intercession for  FULL MORDECAI HONOR will crown the event and will also REAP HONOR for you. The honor you intercede for in these 30 days to January 21 is the degree of honor that will (or won't) come to you in the New Year. God is teaching us to reign in this extraordinary season, this amazing Last Days Age. Can you honor a husband if God gave you one, a boss, a mother-in-law, can you honor the Office of the President or the Plan of God? Skimping on honor at this time, will skimp on the Glory of God!
 When God's choice is  fully honored, - as Mordecai was - God's reward is FULLY given! God gave the people of the nation light ( a new dawn of hope) and gladness and joy and honor.The enemies of the Kingdom were destroyed. Esther 8v.16 Victory is indeed sweet!
 ....And the king said to Haman/Hillary, what shall be done to the man whom the king delights to honor?...Haman answered... Let royal apparel be brought which the king has worn (NOTE: THE ANOINTING)  
 And the horse which the king has ridden 
(NOTE: same as David's instructions for Solomon's inaugurations for David's mule to be ridden) and a royal crown be set upon his head. 
Let the apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes. Let him array the man (NOTE: divine order- Mordecai was not putting king's robe on himself- but nobility and established order robing him) whom the king delights to honor and conduct him on horseback through the open square of the city (NOTE: We need to pray for the city- the sea of people to OPEN to Trump and not resist him whom Our king has appointed.)Esther 6v.6-9
The King's instructions in Esther 6v.10
Do so to Mordecai the Jew (Make it happen).
Leave out nothing that you have spoken. (Don't mess this up.)
We need a full Mordecai inauguration. Esther (the church) has prevailed before the King.We won. We Arise, We Shine for Our light has come!
