Let me preface this blog post by saying that I don’t particularly follow sport, especially football, but this is the word God has given me and He impressed it upon my spirit that I needed to release it today.

Some of you may know that Liverpool won the Premier League championship on 25 June 2020 after a 30 year drought. On the 25th of June God dropped the words “game-changing” into my spirit – now, at the time, He was referencing something personal that I will share at a later stage but I have been reflecting on those words since then and, this morning, He said to me:- “This is a game-changing season!” and, when I researched game-changing seasons, I came upon Liverpool’s win and, what they considered were eight game-changing moments that led to their win. I heard the Lord say that He had eight game-changing keys for this game-changing season and I have noted them down exactly the way He told me to.

We need to remember that we are called to be game-changers, more now than ever before! We are called to shift atmospheres, move mountains and disciple nations –all game-changing stuff. Here are the eight game-changing keys God gave me to enable us all to walk in a “game-changer” anointing.

1. The enemy ALWAYS overplays his hand – let us never forget that! Each new trial you face, each new disaster you hear about, each time he tries to shake you and those around you, he is trying to draw you away from God but, instead, those very trials, those very disasters and those very shakings should push you nearer and nearer to the only One Who is unshakeable and can turn everything around in a single moment. Hide under the shadow of those Almighty wings, lay your head on Abba Father’s chest and know that your season of restoration, recompense and restitution is only one of His heartbeats away. (Psalm 91:1: When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High. TPT)

2. STAND FIRM! When you have done everything you know to do, when you have been obedient in every way possible, when all you can do is stand – stand firm! Stand on His promises, stand on His love, stand on His grace and know that He will NEVER leave you or forsake you. (Ephesians 6:13: Therefore, put on the complete armour of God, so that you will be able to (successfully) resist and stand your ground in the evil day (of danger), and having done everything (that the crisis demands), to stand firm (in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious). AMP)

3. Know that you are ESSENTIAL to the end-time plan of God. No matter who you are, no matter what you do, no matter how insignificant you might feel, YOU are a significant and essential part of God’s end-time plan. Do not compare your gift or calling to others, do not think that nothing you do can ever change anything – the next reformation will be led by the nameless and the faceless, the men and women of significance, who have lived their lives in true surrender. (Galatians 2:20: I have been crucified with Christ (that is, in Him I have shared His crucifixion), it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body I live by faith (by adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting) in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. AMP)

4. There is no such thing as wasted time – God is the Redeemer of all things and that includes TIME. He is busy redeeming time lost, opportunities lost – whether by choice or by circumstance, it doesn’t matter to Him, Your lost time WILL be redeemed! (Psalm 90:4: For a thousand years in Your sight are like yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night. AMP)

5. Clean hands and a pure heart are vitally important in this game-changing season. Ask God to search your heart and root out anything that will prevent you from moving forward in this season – any bitterness, offence, contention, self-promotion, superstition, lack of faith, corruption, backsliding – allow Him to shine the light of His truth in all the dark corners and let Him cleanse you with His abundant love and grace. (Psalm 24:3-4: Who, then, ascends into the presence of the Lord? And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place? Those who are clean – whose work and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure. TPT)

6. Assert your AUTHORITY as a believer! Remember we have ALL authority and the enemy has NONE. Take authority over the situations and circumstances where the enemy is trying to convince you that he holds all the cards – that is a lie from the pit of hell – take back your authority. (Luke 10:19: Now you understand that I have imparted to you all my authority to trample over his kingdom. You will trample upon every demon before you and overcome every power Satan possesses. Absolutely nothing will be able to harm you as you walk in this authority. TPT)

7. CELEBRATE every victory, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant! Every victory is from the Lord and, as we celebrate and give thanks, we enter His gates and walk into even more victory. (Psalm 100:4: You can pass through His open gates with the password of praise. Come right into His presence with thanksgiving. Come bring your thank offering to Him and affectionately bless His beautiful name! TPT)

8. FIGHT BACK! Have gritty faith! Don’t take the enemy’s attempts to steal, kill and destroy lying down! Stand up, put on your armour, pick up your sword and follow the Lord of Hosts Who has already won the battle for you! (Ephesians 6:17: And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. AMP)

I love numbers and God often uses numbers to draw my attention so, when I realised that my own personal testimony occurred on the 25th of June after a 30 month battle, I knew I needed to research the prophetic significance of the numbers 25 and 30.

The number 30 signifies the right time or moment to reign or minister. David’s reign began at 30 years of age, as did Jesus’ ministry. It can demonstrate that your character has been fashioned to the point where you are ready to take up your calling. It is the number for the Hebrew word “kee” which means burning, flaming or on fire. Sounds game-changing to me!

The number 25 symbolises being brought to account by the grace of God, expectant of grace and mercy – definitely game-changing!

So let us step into this GAME-CHANGING SEASON and be true GAME-CHANGERS

for Jesus!!!
