Hasn’t been a month since Hillsong Conference London and my life has been turned upside down & sideways, shaken and tumbled up already!
It was wild.
I had to let go of a relationship that is not glorifying God. I had to make a conscious effort to find someone whom I can be accountable to (praise God for divine connections!) I am moving flats and stepping out of my comfort zone. A long time desire has been stirred up back. And I had the privilege to invite for next year’s conf- to God be the glory!
It was embarrassing though. I thought my plans were great and action plans well mapped out. But God showed me clearly how futile they all were. He works through our desires to bring Himself the most amount of glory through it all! In the process, I am being scraped and sharpened and man, every bit of my flesh cries out in pain! But I am thankful for God is a God of Action and (as always) He’s got my best interest.
Next year would be amazing. Today would be great!
I am excited for what God is doing in this city. I want to experience God move in a corporate way. I believe He wants to see not just worshippers but movers. I pray that Christianity will be tangible in our circles. The church be an oasis in the desert. I pray that there won’t be any borders among congregations. ‘Me’ and ‘Us’ thinking be destroyed.. It’s about time ‘We’ step up and push the boundaries. We may all be different but we all have the same love and passion for Jesus. Today in my quiet time, God reminded me again that I am imperfect. The church is not perfect but God is! We have to stop creating the impression that we are holy and chosen and exclusive when in reality we all struggle..in fact, we are in dire desperation for God’s presence.
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in your weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9
May our lives show His abundant grace. May every word we speak and every move we make magnify the big God we have that way our circles will not be able to deny the big God that we serve.. They may not agree with it but they will not be able to deny it! I pray our hearts be stirred up all the more. That we get rooted… soaked in His presence.
One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and insistently require: that I may dwell in His presence all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple. Psalm 27:4
Lastly, this passion should not stop. It should extend outwards. In our circles- our workplace, our families, our relationships and even in our daily interaction with strangers. By grace, we are able to make manifest the love of Jesus in our everyday lives. Do not wait till you are ready. You are because the Holy Spirit is in you. It’s about time to actually move in the claims that we make in the pew.
Fathom this: What can a sovereign, all knowing, almighty God do to a heart that is fully surrendered to Him? More so, HEARTS that are fully surrendered to Him?
