MESSAGE NOTES: Fast Forward #2



  • God wants to speak to us about our destiny, purpose and calling
  • We are called to be people of Holy Ambition – those who have a passion to serve His purposes in our generation
  • We have set aside these 20 days of prayer and fasting to ‘ask, seek, knock’
  • I really sensed to pick up where we left off on Friday Night… Pastor Sharon was sharing about the word the Lord gave her about ‘you are dragging, because you are dragging’

  • Over the past several months I really felt a stirring from the Lord for fresh vision for Toronto City Church in 2020.

  • “God wants to work in us so he can work with us and through us

  • As we come into 2019 my heart is stirred that we will individually and corporately go after the callings and purposes of God in our lives. IT’S TIME!

Romans 12:1 (TPT)  – 1 Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship.

The key: I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifice!
