I named my ministry the "Activation Movement" as I wanted to create a movement of others experiencing the fullness of relationship with God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. And since that time, I've seen others in ministry using the word "activation" to describe the jump start for more that we should all desire as we seek our Triune God.
Later in the journey as I was on a walk one day, I was thinking about my ministry and how it could be used, when I heard God say, "I saved that name for you!" It blew me away that God knows each of us intimately and saves assignments, business or ministry names, our spouses and children, and more, just for us!
To confirm this message from God, I met Robby Dawkins, a well known pastor and author, who happened to move to my neighborhood in Texas. When I told him about my own book, he was blown away, as he had told his publisher that he wanted to call his book, "Activation"! His publisher recommended a book title that was better aligned to the titles of his other books, allowing me to have a book and ministry with a unique name in the Christian community. God really had saved that name for me!
So my question for you is, what opportunities, businesses, ministries, relationships, and more does God have planned just for you? We are all unique in God's eyes, with a special purpose in the grand unfolding of history. God planned for our creation and existence in the world at the exact, pre-planned time that He intended. Ask God what unique opportunities He has placed in His plan for your life, and take advantage of the blessings that God has saved JUST FOR YOU!
"My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be."
- Psalm 139:15-16
- Adam Gellert
