Content To Contend – A Word by Joe Joe Dawson
As we journey through life, it is easy to grow stagnant within the normality of life. It’s easy to get caught in the rhythm of the day to day and settle in to that. But what we must realize is what God is doing in the earth right now. God is moving, shaking and stirring many people in this hour. God is equipping His people and preparing them for what He is going to do. I also believe that this is time where God is reminding many people to go back over prophetic words and promises they have received in the past and dreams that they once had about doing great things for the Lord.
God spoke to me recently in a time of prayer and said, “content to contend.” The word content means to be happy, peaceful or satisfied in the place or situation you find yourself. However, contend means to change something or apply something in order to achieve a new result. Like I mentioned earlier, many have grown content in the normality of life. You may be content in your walk with God, your marriage, your purpose, your business, career or your ministry. However, God is calling us in this hour to shift from just being content to contending. In this season, we must contend in prayer, in fasting and in moving forward in obedience to what God has said. On a daily basis, we must spend that daily time of prayer with the Lord and be found contending.
I believe that there is great destiny and purpose locked up inside of people in this hour. I believe that the true champions of the Kingdom and the real, authentic sons & daughters of God will contend in this hour to go forth and demonstrate the Kingdom of God everywhere that they go. God is calling us to rise up in this and shift from being contend with the ways things are and start contending. God is looking for those that will not just say, “Well, this is just the way things are.” Instead God is looking for those that are hungry for more and that will join with Him as He is always speaking, moving and manifesting His Kingdom in the earth. This is a season in the body of Christ where God is raising up those who will contend. Those that will contend for revival and awakening and those that will contend to see the prophetic words that have been spoken over their lives come to pass. No longer will we just be content, this is a season to contend!

A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
