Let me tell you, I’ve been praying! “God, what do you want us to do? What is next?” I will always be completely submitted to God’s will. That’s just my heart. I’ve seen wonderful visions, I’ve had brilliant ideas, and most of all, we’ve gotten a LOT done during 2019. I realized recently that I’ve been praying “What next?” and God’s been telling me “Whatever you want!” That’s what the open plain from my dad’s vision represents to me. My imagination has put me on stage leading thousands of young people to Jesus, or in impoverished nations healing the sick, or writing best selling books that change people’s lives.
The best part is that the Holy Spirit is driving the bus. I have huge dreams for the future of the ministry and they are All possible because God, for whom NOTHING is impossible, who speaks to non-existent things as if they already existed, is driving! Woo HOO! So we are preaching Jesus ALL OVER THE WORLD!
Last month I wrote to you about Isaiah 9:6-7. This prophecy of Jesus’s birth and destiny says: “Of the INCREASE of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” It's God's will for his Kingdom to continue to increase. That means that as we do the work of the kingdom, our ministry will increase in impact.
n January 2018, Ricky had a vision. He was riding in a big bus and he knew that the driver of this bus was the Holy Spirit. He knew that he was in good hands so he relaxed for the ride. The bus was on a spiraling drive that was going up, and as it was going up it accelerating more and more. Then the bus came out into an open plain and continued going forward. The bus represented Ricky Leonard Ministries; the Holy Spirit was driving the bus, indicating the ministry would move forward supernaturally. The spiral drive upward represented being taken to the next level. The bus accelerating and upward represented things moving forward and developing in the ministry much faster than they have done in the past. The wide-open plain that the bus began to drive into represented all of the opportunities available to the ministry.
At the beginning of 2019, Sarah took over the ministry. It is God’s will for the ministry to go farther and have a greater impact now than it ever did with Ricky. She is the next generation taking the ministry to the next level, it has been prophesied to her that her ministry is accelerating. God has given her an open plain, a blank canvas, and she is to declare the dreams and visions that the Lord has given to her!
