Overcoming the yearly gift giving dilemmaagfc2
I was reminded again today that we are in a season of God doing the unexpectant and surprising us with his encounters. This is the time of re positioning, re assignments and re alignments not only for ourselves but for the Body of Christ and the nations. This is the time when the winds of God are blowing across the land with righteousness raining down and justice springing up. This is such a wonderful time of expectation and anticipation of Gods glory.
I heard the Holy Spirit say to me that the Father wishes us to partner him in these times of transitions. That the eyes of the Lord are roaming over the earth looking for those to whom he can trust to walk with him in these times of upgrades and divine appointments. The doors of heaven are being opened, not only to pour up the Lords promotion, but also for us to press in closer to the heart of the Father in a spirit of co operation.
In these times and seasons of the unexpectant and suddenlies of God we need to be awake and vigilant. I heard the Holy Spirit say that our eyes must be always on Jesus for this is the time to take our eyes off our circumstances, our troubles, our infirmities and seek again the Kingdom of God and his righteousness. We need to take our focus away from the peripherals of the faith and not become bogged down in endless debates over tongues, end times, angels and all the other intellectual faith/scriptural discussions.
I believe for the Lord to partner with is in the glorious times of his out pouring of his Glory we need to take our time and energies away from the old pattern of thinking concerning our needs sought through intercession. By crying out to the Lord for rescue and deliverance from our circumstances, all to often our focus is on the circumstances and not on Christ. We become consumed with our problems. Instead we need to reposition ourselves and not focus on the storms as the disciples we wont to do while in the boat.
Today the Lord is doing a new thing and new strategies are needed. I sense the Holy Spirit direction is to take the Body of Christ into a season of thanksgiving, praise and worship. For our strength, deliverance and prosperity will be found in the praise of our lips and the worship of our heart. This is the time of new things for the former has past away as they belonged to past seasons.
I have found worship songs, praise CD’s are a wonderful beginning point. Speaking in tongues carries you deeper into worship. Thanksgiving leads to praise which in turn brings us into the Fathers house in worship and worship beings the glory of the Father upon us. In this place of glory we find the deliverance, the peace, the salvation, the power and authority that our heart so desires. In the place of Glory, God our Father satisfies the desire of our heart and. releases his divine plans for us, the Body of Christ and the nations.
Therefore my prayer is for God to raise up new spirit filled musicians, song writers worship leaders and Holy Spirit led forms of worship to be created and established, so that the Glory of the Lord will cover the earth.
