True worshippers

A few days ago in a worship session I felt the Lord saying to His people…

“I’m calling forth my true worshippers, those who worship in spirit and in truth. Those who are not moved by the cares of the world but the cares of My heart.
They are willing to obey at any cost. These are my true worshippers who will lead the way. They will bring heaven to earth!”

Is this you? Does this resonate in the your Spirit? Rise up passionate worshipper. You are chosen for the this hour!

When life as you know it gets put on hold…

Have you ever experienced a season where for a matter of days, weeks, months or maybe even years, your life suddenly felt like it was on hold?

This happened to me a few months back with my husband’s collision with a car whilst riding his bike. Things that seemed important were no longer priority and an eternal perspective was heightened.

For many of you, your experience may have lingered for a lot longer than I encountered (while nursing Justin back to full health again), but whatever the case, it’s important to look at these events from God’s perspective.

I love that God gave us the book of Job to relate to when going through hardships, grief and disappointment. Job encountered the highest degree of trials on all fronts of his life but his reaction after loosing all his wealth, source of provision, shepherds, servants and even his children, is one to be admired.

Job stood up and tore his robe in grief. Then he shaved his head and fell to the ground to worship. He said, “I came naked from my mother’s womb, and I will be naked when I leave. The Lord gave me what I had, and the Lord has taken it away. Praise the name of the Lord!” In all of this, Job did not sin by blaming God. (Job 1:20‭-‬22 NLT)

Yes, after all that happened to him, He WORSHIPPED! He may have fell to the ground, but he WORSHIPPED and did not blame God.

This is such a powerful example and a great reminder that even in the midst of a storm, even when it seemed his life was on hold, forever changed, he still worshipped God!

He is faithful!

1 Thessalonians 5:24 (NIVUK)
The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.

What has He promised you? What has He revealed He will do for you and those that you are praying for?

HE IS FAITHFUL to heal, to save, to set free, to comfort, to deliver, to restore and to set right whatever area needs His divine intervention in your life.

It’s His nature. His heart is LOVE!

You can be confident and rest assured that He not only desires to, but He WILL do it! For you!

‘he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’
Philippians 1:6b (NIVUK)

Your own ‘tent of meeting’: more than a spectator

Moses went right into the ‘tent of meeting’ and met with God face to face like a friend (v11) but the people only stood at the entrances of their tents and spectated. Read Exodus 33:7-11

Moses had a revelation of the necessity to regularly meet with God and hear from Him so he set up his own special place to go to meet with God that was away from the chaos and people in the camp.

It probably wasn’t convenient or easy for Moses, but this sacrifice shows his dedication and desire for the presence of God.

Joshua was totally addicted to ‘the tent’…
Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young assistant Joshua son of Nun did not leave the tent.(Exodus 33:‬11 NIVUK)

Ha ha! He couldn’t leave it, couldn’t get enough! Just picture him worshipping all night on his own.

If you havent already, find yourself your own ‘tent of meeting’, a place to reflect, meditate and hear what God is saying to you in your daily life; a place away from distraction and duties.

Enter into your special tent. Eliminate distractions and you just may find yourself like Joshua, swept up in His presence not wanting to leave!

Following God and not man

Read Galations 1 Paul makes it so clear that he is not sent from man (v1), is not following man, nor does he attempt to please man in any way (v10).

On the contrary Paul says ‘If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of God. (Gal 1:10b)

We need to make sure we don’t follow after particular speakers, preachers, healers, evangelists, apostles or leaders of any kind by putting them on a pedestal and glorifying them.

Paul explains that his revelation of Jesus came directly from Jesus Christ himself (v12). Direct revelation is the best!

God wants to reveal so much to us and the best way to get the most accurate, relevant and spirit-filled revelation is directly from God through two-way prayer and reading the Word.

He desires to share intimate secrets with YOU, so don’t wait for next Sunday to hear from Him, He is waiting to speak to you now!

A refreshing spirit

Isn’t it wonderful being with someone, praying with someone, and then walking away so uplifted and empowered by the presence they bring to your life?

We need to ask ourselves… How do people feel after being in our presence? Are they uplifted? Encouraged? Energised and empowered?

2 Corinthians 7:13 (TPT)
Your response leaves us so encouraged! You’ve made us even more joyful upon hearing of how you refreshed Titus, for his mind was set at ease by all of you.

Titus was filled with joy after visiting the Corinthians. ‘His spirit was refreshed’ (v13 NIV).

If we are so filled with God’s presence then other Christians around us should also feel that sense of refreshment.

We pray Lord, for a refreshing spirit leaving an aroma of You wherever we go!

‘For we are the fragrance of Christ’ (2 Corinthians 2:15a)

To know Him

Psalms 36:9‭-‬10 (TPT)
To know you is to experience a flowing fountain, drinking in your life, springing up to satisfy. In your light we receive the light of revelation. Lord, keep pouring out your unfailing love on those who are near you. Release more of your blessings to those who are loyal to you.

I love this! His presence is truly what satisfies. It’s so refreshing, like an ever flowing fountain!

If you are needing comfort, if you are needing revelation and wisdom, if you need reassurance, courage, forgiveness, self control, weights lifted, anxiety gone for good, then drink from the Well!

Don’t allow disappointment, hurt, grief or pain to tie you up in knots. Draw close. As you come near to Him you WILL be satisfied. You WILL be drenched in His unfailing love for you. Not only will it pour over you, but also onto those around you.

LET IT RAIN!!!

Everything is yours!

Check out the response of the older son…

Luke 15:30‭-‬31 (TPT)
But look at this son of yours! He comes back after wasting your wealth on prostitutes and reckless living, and here you are throwing a great feast to celebrate—for him!’ “The father said, ‘My son, you are always with me by my side. Everything I have is yours to enjoy.

What the older son didn’t realise was that his father had given him access to everything he owned! The whole estate.

He never even asked!

What are you missing out on that you haven’t asked God for?

The older son was so consumed with pleasing the father and ticking all the boxes, that he had made himself like an orphan.

All the while everything he wanted was right in front of him through his relationship with his father.

Are you avoiding asking God for something because you don’t think He will give it to you?

Ask. Believe. Receive.

He is more than able to give to you what you ask for.

For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him.
John 14:13 (TPT)

The time of God’s favour

2 Corinthians 6:2 (NIVUK)
For he says, ‘In the time of my favour I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.’ I tell you, now is the time of God’s favour, now is the day of salvation.

This is a divine invitation to enter into God’s favour!

This is for us, NOW!

His favour is here for everything He has purposed for you.

Favour on opportunities, favour on your family, favour on your studies, favour on your creative ideas, favour on your home, on your relationships, on your bank account…

Favour in every part of your life! Let Him so fill you up with His presence, that everywhere you go leaves a trail of His favour and glory.
