“For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.” – John 4:24 NLT
Hello family God is issuing a call (He has for a while now) Some have heard the call and answered, others hear it but are delaying. Then then there are those who hear the call but completely reject it. I am not talking about a call to the unsaved! But a call that has gone out and is going out to the church to stop getting caught up in unesscary things!
“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” – Mahatma Gandhi
What would provoke Gandhi to say this? What did he see in Christ that he did not see in us! (Yes we in 2018 have to own it!) We the body of Christ are all caught up in the “fake news” and other distractions this world presents! If we are divided and petty just like the world they are definitely not going to serve christ! Some of us are so caught up in what denomination we are, or what lives matter or caught up in hatting on the president (yes i did go there) and a bunch of other issues that cause dividing opinions that we have tainted the message of Christ. We are all guilty of contributing to the pot in some way or form.
But God is call and has been calling us to take off our rose colored glasses and see the Truth, His Truth!
56 The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law. 57 But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. – 1 Corinthians 15:56-57 KJV
Hello family, We have the victory! Over every situation that may arise. You may lose a battle but the war is already won! Don’t give your flesh or satan any credit. We are more than what we see in the mirror. If we would take off the shades blocking us from seeing our God potential. Not just potential but God potential. God sees us at our completion. He knows what state we are in now but He wants to lift our eyes up and show us who we are!
Who does that? Who else knows every dark dirty secret we have and does not abandon us but begins to process us. And even when we mess up in the process he brings correction to us and gets us back on track. Not even you mother or father can love you like that! We have been given the victory! WE WIN!!!!
17 For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. – 2 Corinthians 3:17 NLT
Hello family, This song reminds me that I have 24/7/365 access to God. it does not matter whereI am, I can go to that secret place where it is just me and my heavenly father. I can be in the middle of a crowd and still block out every thing else so that He is my focus. I have has so many awesome God moment in the most unexpected situations.
One God moment that comes to mind was when i had worship in the poring rain. I was already outside in the middle of a worship playlist. All of the sudden the sky opened, pouring down rain. I started to run in side but i felt God pulling me to stay out. I was soaking wet and cold, but that did not matter. It was my time with my heavenly father and he beckoned me to stay. For that hour the parking lot of the apartment complex where i lived was my place of freedom!
God will not deny us! If we knock on His door He will welcome us in. Don’t ignore the Father calling you. Where ever you are, walk right in to your place of freedom!
17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. – John 14:17 NLT
Hello family, It’s worship Wednesday! Got another awesome song to share with you. Spirit Break Out by Kim Walker-Smith. “Our Father all of Heaven roars your name. Sing louder, let this place erupt with praise. Can you hear it, the sound of Heaven touching earth, the sound of Heaven touching earth!”
This song leaves me lost in Him. Lord come in this place where I’m at and break out! That means He has the floor to do whatever he wants! I have invited God into the room, into the moment to do all he needs to do with me. At several points in the song the singer sings break our walls down… Break our walls down! That means that from that point on it is open season on every wall that we have put up! This is more than just worship this song is a prayer! When you sing it you are asking The holy spirt to break out in your life!
1 A psalm of David. Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight! – Psalm 32:1 NLT
Hello family, Wednesday Worship is something that God put on my heart to do. As some of you know i love worship music, it has gotten me through some of the toughest times of my life. So on every Wednesday unless god says otherwise, I will share about a worship song that has blessed me.
From The Inside Out by Hillsong United is my go to song, especially when I’m feeling distant from God. It brings me back right to Him, the lyrics of the song reminds me of His grace but also remind me That I am bought with a price. Christ gave His all for me and i owe Him my all! Letting the light within me consume me. So that others around me see Christ before they see me. “Your will above all else My purpose remains The art of losing myself In bringing You praise”
This is my hearts cry, this is what i desire. Not to be shaped form the outside by this world but to be consumed from the inside out by God.
6 And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. 7 Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. 8 Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. – Deuteronomy 6:6-8 NLT
Hello family, I came across the opening video on Facebook, posted by a close sister in the Lord. It moved me deeply. Here is a mother singing a simple worship song to her baby. As you saw the baby was moved to tears by the song. What could cause this?
It is written on that child’s heart! It has been stitched in his young DNA! This was his worship, those tears were poured out in appreciation for his heavenly father. You may say, “How can this baby understand this song? He can’t even speak!” It is what his mother and father have implemented in him in his short time on this earth.
Those tears were not coincidence or accidental! Whatever thoughts the holy sprit spoke to this child impacted him! This is why Jesus tells us to have a heart like a child. We are open and free to receive the words and commands of our heavenly father!
That child like heart is still with in us ready to connect with God and become lost in Him. It’s in us, its just buried under our fears, pride, anger, and the distractions of life. He is a good good father! Full is song below
