“Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)


You have been carefully crafted for this moment in history. You are God’s chosen problem-solver, solution-bearer, and change advocate for this time. You have what this generation is looking for even if you don’t know it. 

Part of my purpose is to help you access what God has put inside of you so that you can change the fabric of society. You will be a history-maker and a game-changer. Something will come out of you, as a result of this new thinking, that will astound others. It’s time to take hold of the future and discover who you really are. 

Every person on earth has a God-given gift. Every gift comes with a built-in audience. This means that people are looking for what you carry and not even be aware that they need what you have, but they do. Thirty years ago no one thought they needed an Uber ride, a smartphone device, or a social media account. But the fact is, they didn’t know they needed it until they were properly presented with the option to have it and discovered the value such innovations could add.

When you present your gift, or the treasure that you carry, they will recognize their need for it.


Dear God, You could have chosen to place anyone in this pivotal time of world history, but you chose me. I am grateful that You have a divine assignment for my life in this season. Thank you for making me who You created me to be, and I trust that You will fulfill all of Your plans and purposes for me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
