TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER

A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD. Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up. Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies. Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. Psalm 27 
 
TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER – Today I set my mind on this – today I am ready God – today Father I believe as never before. Today Father I trust with all that is within me and today I seek after You - I know that I know that I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living and because of this I seek after You and Your Kingdom and I know that all else will be added. So Father today I go further and further as You lead and guide and direct me. Today I am ready to break the barriers as never before – today Father I am so thankful that You have chosen me to set a new standard in my life. Father I thank You that You have given me all the wisdom that is needed – Father I thank You that You have given me all the resources that I need. I thank You God that You send angels before me to clear the way and because of this – because of Your faithfulness – because of Your love – because of Your grace – because of Your favor – because of Your mercy I know that it is TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER.  
 
TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER. TRAILBLAZER - a person who makes a new track through wild country. TRAILBLAZER - pioneer in any field of endeavor. TRAILBLAZER - An innovative leader in a field; a pioneer. God is raising up remnants in every area – in every industry – in all things and we need to accept that it is our job- yes our job – because we work unto God and we need to move forward in confidence that no matter what it looks like that it can be done.  A trailblazer is a pioneer or someone who is considered a first in their area of expertise.  As leaders, they point theway, take the risks, and change the environment.  They have a vision for a different future, a faith that turns their dreams into reality, and a determination that cuts through barriers and obstacles.  The Wright Brothers overcame obstacles of aerodynamics so that man could have wings. Grace Hopper handled hexadecimal hurdles to make the computing machine accessible and practical for business. And the late Steve Jobs gave us innovations putting wings on computers taking the everyday consumer to new heights. TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER. And all this takes is to trust in God – to do our best and to press in and press on. TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER. The question is – will you answer the call? TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER. 
 
TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER -  Start your journey – not just tip toeing into it – but start your journey. Time to reunite with your deepest passion – time to serve with your unique gifts – time to reclaim all that is yours. TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER. Time to be courageous enough to reject the status quo, leave the work-to-survive world behind and forge their own path. TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER - before you blaze a trail, you must first know the terrain intimately. Before you can improvise, you must be trained in the traditional rules of engagement. And this training comes through your intimate time with God – your time in the Word –your time with Jesus – your time listening to the Holy Spirit within. Proverbs 18:16 tells us - A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men. TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER - You need to know your No End Path. This involves your passion, your unique gifts to the world and who you wish to serve. You need to know your message. Without a clear, concise message you'll struggle to set yourself apart from the masses. You need to know with absolute certainty that the path you're on is the right one for you. TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER. Without a focused direction for your work, you'll end up spinning your wheels. You need to know with absolute certainty that the path your on is the right one for you. Your message is the fuel behind what you do; it's a rallying cry. You need to put a foundation under your castle in the sky. You need a practical strategy to accomplish your vision. This journey isn't for the faint of heart. But you've made it this far (perhaps for a reason). I know you have what it takes. TIME TO BE A TRAILBLAZER.  
 
Hold fast to Psalm 27 - A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD. Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up. Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies. Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
