The Story Behind the 365 Live Fearlessly Mission

The Story Behind the 365 Live Fearlessly Mission

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9, AMP.

Beloved,

Every day choose faith to overcome every fear. Be present and alert to the prompting and leading of the Holy Spirit. Be obedient to the instructions. Move forward, even if the ask is a bit fuzzy. God will make it clear when He sees you have responded to the call. He doesn’t call the qualified. He equips the caller.

Always have fearless faith in God greater than fear because God is still faithful to us, even if we are fearful. Fear is a spirit that is not of God. The enemy creates fear. If fear reigns in our lives, we will be defeated, and the enemy will rule that, and eventually, we will become a slave to fear. But as of right now, we declare with boldness that we are no longer children of fear. We are Children of God.


For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].

2 Timothy 1:7

So let us trust and obey our Lord because our Lord will not forsake us. No matter what we are facing in our lives now, let us continue to trust and believe in Him. No matter what happens, God is always listening to our prayers, and eventually, He will answer us in His time and better than we prayed, asked, imagined, or desired.

Be encouraged, equipped, and elevated throughout this journey, run, and win this race called life. Don’t let fear rob you from achieving your dreams and blurring your vision to reach for what lies ahead.


Don’t fear failure. Fear faithlessness.
Don’t fear attack. Fear apathy.
Don’t fear rejection. Fear regret.

The Story Behind the 365 Live Fearlessly Mission


Back in November 2019, I experienced a kairos moment during my prayer and fasting time. I heard the Holy Spirit say 365-Live Fearlessly. With that idea and after all, that pain of the process I endured in 2019, I was ready to take advantage of or even create a perfect moment to deliver this specific mission to live overcoming fear with faith every day. I moved to prepare to give birth to greatness. I purchased the domain (365livefearlessly.com) and wrote down the vision, so I wouldn’t forget as God dripped the content a bit at a time to me.

Kairos is timeliness, appropriateness, decorum, symmetry, balance—awareness of the rhetorical situation or “the circumstances that open moments of opportunity” (Kinneavy; Sipiora; Vatz; Bitzer; Hill 217)



As 2019 ended and 2020 rolled in, I was so busy moderating and coaching two programs, the Self-Challenge in Mastermind Cafe and the Daniel Fast 2020, both running simultaneously, I invited Dr. Bisi to contribute by sharing daily empowerment devotionals on January 1, 2020.

I needed better clarity of the vision and the assignment that God has given me.


Go to the source!

Never seek approval from people who will never understand the power of your anointing and the weight of the assignment God has asked you to do. When you get a hunch or hear the Holy Spirit speaking to you, write it down, and say yes to the call. God will give you further instructions. Your response is to be available not to be qualified.

So, I drank my champagne. I grabbed hold of my book, Rebound Faith: Chayah, and refreshed my knowledge to apply the 5Rs of the Rebound Faith Prophetic Prayer Strategy.


The Request

During Daniel Fast 2020, I asked and sought God for directions, wisdom, and His plan for the Rebound Faith: Chayah book series and, in particular, the idea, 365-Live Fearlessly, which He gave me back in the Fall of 2019.


Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. (Psalm 143:10)


You [also] gave Your good Spirit to instruct them,
You did not withhold Your manna from their mouth,
And You gave them water for their thirst.
(Nehemiah 9:20)


Guide me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long.
(Psalm 25:4)


Blessed and reverently praised are You, O Lord;
Teach me Your statutes. (Psalm 119:12)


He refreshes and restores my soul (life);
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
for His name’s sake. (Psalm 23:3)


And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me,
And lead me in the everlasting way. (Psalm 139:24)


The Revelation

God is in the business of preparing us, not just for self-fulfillment but to be a source for the deliverance of all His people and His Kingdom.

Pain and crisis are excellent tutors and instructors for our transformation. Fasting and prayer are outlets for God to speak, connect, and reveal to us prophetic insights and glimpses of His divine plan, and for us to experience divine encounters with God. 

The revelation for the 365-Live Fearlessly Movement is that God is calling for us to encourage, empower, educate, and elevate His people to choose faith over fear every day.

God says, 

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge

Hosea 4:6a

Depression, anxiety, and other emotional and mental disorders are contributing to a global epidemic. Affecting people regardless of status, nationality, education, ethnicity, gender, age, culture, financial standing, social class, religion, or any other demographic classification that exists. People are suffering in silence because of the stigma. They refuse to seek mental health care, emotional support or talking to coaches or counsellors, sadly sometimes believe the lie that to die is more comfortable than to live. 


God is saying,

My people, ‘u power up!
Be empowered to break the stigma.
Cause a paradigm shift that emphasizes seeking support, storytelling, and speaking life
as self-care strengths and a spiritual strategy.
Please remind them of their power, dominion, and authority.
Start a movement that helps people to tell their stories, share strategies, and seek solutions.
Let’s defeat fear, depression, worry, anxiety, discouragement, and hopelessness with faith.
Let’s create healthy individuals, healthy families, healthy communities, healthy corporations, strong teams, and a healthy society because there is are powerful alignments with well-being, resilience, and performance.


Let’s Live, Chayah!


I continued to pray and seek God’s revelation for innovation during the fast. I was also researching and preparing the masterclasses in the Self-Challenge hosted in Mastermind Cafe. I studied Koltko-Rivera’s (2006) research; he argued that Maslow’s later studies presented a level beyond self-actualization. I understood the concept of self-actualization, but I extended my body of knowledge as I learned the notion of thriving beyond self-fulfillment to self-transcendence.

Koltko-Rivera (2006) described self-transcendence as one seeking “to further a cause beyond the self and to experience a communion beyond the boundaries of the self through peak experience.”

On day 13 of the Daniel Fast, the community pursued the revelation of Attributes of God, which revealed God’s transcendence. We discussed that God is beyond space and not bounded by time. He is eternal and unchangeable by any force in the universe.

For the high and exalted One, He who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy says this, “I dwell on the high and holy place, but also with the contrite and humble in spirit in order to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the contrite [overcome with sorrow for sin]. (Isaiah 57:15)

During the first week of the Daniel Fast: Closing the GAP, on Day 4, we cried out to God to lavish us with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. We asked for wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, reverence, and fear of the Lord.

I believe that God granted the request!


Response


As God began to unpack the revelation of this new mission, I felt like a cat in a lion’s den, the task overwhelming, the mountains and terrains seem steep, and the path unclear. I knew that I needed to muscle up my faith and overcome my fear because the Roaring Conquering Lion of Judah was with me. He promised that He would never leave me nor forsake me. During the preparation season – planning, plowing, and planting process as the resources became few, and the work became harder, and I felt like quitting. I remembered who asked me, appointed me, anointed me, and advanced me to achieve this seeming mission impossible job, my God, who nothing is impossible to accomplish.

Today, I declare, “I might be going through the fiery furnace, but I am determined that I am not going to smell like smoke doing this job. God will provide everything that I need, not average, but in excellence and magnificence, to save His people.”


God Calls and Uses You

This is what the Lord says to His anointed, to you [insert your name], Whose right hand I have held
To subdue nations before him, And I will ungird the loins of kings [disarming them]; To open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:
“I will go before you and level the mountains; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness [the hoarded treasures] And the hidden riches of secret places, So that you may know that it is I, The Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you ({insert your name}, the Great) by your name.”
(Isaiah 45:1-3)

Rejoice

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”

― C.S. Lewis

Now, here we are facing the coronavirus (covid19) pandemic globally and fear to cripple a nation. But God asked me to tell you to let your faith be more significant than your fear.

As such, we should be incredibly excited about the 365-Live Fearlessly Movement, equipping you with the Daily Devotional to build your faith over fear, give you a chance to inspire others with your story, and support you authoring your fearless faith story.

Whether authoring as a sole author or sharing the investment within a group in the Anthology Project, this is an opportunity for your spiritual growth, personal development, and legacy-building to empowers and inspires yourself first. Others to choose faith over fear in everyday life. The Anthology Project will be the best collection of short-stories by everyday heroes and self-helpers working through anxiety, overcoming fear, or encouraging others to live 365-days fearlessly. We are taking a stance to eliminate limiting beliefs, negativity, worry, doubt, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks that rob our peace and cause fear. There are, by far, too many testimonies in the pews and pulpits of the church and not enough published books and media. We are determined to leave a legacy of rebound faith stories. Please take the next step and join a group of Christian men and women contributing to authoring their fantastic Rebound Faith stories, providing testimonies and prayer strategies for you to live fearlessly.

Be encouraged, equipped, and elevated throughout this journey, run, and win this race called life. Don’t let fear rob you from achieving your dreams and blurring your vision to reach for what lies ahead.


Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. All of us who are mature [pursuing spiritual perfection] should have this attitude. And if in any respect you have a different attitude, that too God will make clear to you.

Philippians 3:13-15

Let’s Pray

Heavenly Father, anoint and bless the work that you have inspired and started in us.

Lord, equip your people.

Lord, empower your people.

Lord, encourage your people.

Lord, engage your people.

Lord, let your people encounter your presence.

Lord, elevate your people.

Lord, energize your people.

Lord, establish your people.

Heal us and heal our land to overcome every mental disorder, depression, discouragement, disease, drug, divorce, destruction, devastation, and darkness. Lord, let the bones that are crushed rejoice!

We ask Lord that we believe that even in the darkness, Your light dawns for us.

Lord, we repent and seek You, corporately, globally and individually. Hear our cry for Your mercy, grace, miracles of healing, help, deliverance, breakthroughs, and restoration.


“Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

Make me hear joy and gladness and be satisfied;
Let the bones which You have broken rejoice.

Hide Your face from my sins
And blot out all my iniquities.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a right and steadfast spirit within me.”
(Psalm 51:7-10)


“Turn to me, and be gracious to me;
Grant Your strength [Your might and the power to resist temptation] to Your servant,
And save the son of Your handmaid.

Show me a sign of [Your] goodwill,
That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed,
Because You, O Lord, helped and comforted me.”
(Psalm 86:16-17)

Help us, O Lord, that we will be FEAR-LESS and FAITH-FUL in Jesus mighty and matchless name, we pray. Amen!


365-Live Fearlessly is a Movement, a Mindset, Mission, and a Message. Declare,

“I choose faith over fear! I have fearless faith in God. I am authoring my Rebound Faith story to Chayah.”

Reflection – November 7, 2020

Just as you’ll never understand the mystery of life forming in a pregnant woman, So you’ll never understand the mystery at work in all that God does.

Ecclesiastes 11:5

Beloved,

Keep moving forward. Glory to God. The climb is steep, but God. I found this blog I published in March 2020 when God gave me the #365livefearlessly vision in November 2019 during my fast. I didn’t understand it, and God can be very short on details because He expects us to depend on Him throughout the process.

Today, Chayah is maturing into an empowerment and transformation community for a lifestyle brand to boost your adaptability and resilience. Motivated by love, faith, vision, and mindset TO LIVE:

  • Love of God.
  • Courage.
  • Confidence.
  • Fearless Faith.
  • Believe in oneself.
  • Self-love.
  • Brotherly-Love.
  • Repentance.
  • Spiritual Growth.
  • Personal Development.
  • Self-Actualization.

I am still at the throne of grace every day, as God drips the content, as He continues to make me while I am building.

Come chayah with us. Experience His love, and encounter His power.

Chayah!

Rewrite your story: To Live.
