I believe that in this season, you will:
· Run faster and further than you have ever run before. I Kings 18:44-46
· See and understand unsearchable things. Jeremiah 33:3
· And you will walk in unimaginable favour. Ephesians 3:20
· Christ in us enables us to be faster, sharper and better than we ever thought possible.
True love doesn’t listen for instruction or direction. It listens for voice of the lover. Therefore we become undone when He simply calls us by whispers our name.
I realised I had become cynical about the church, Christians and ministry. I was frustrated with me. Exasperated at not seeing more healings and miracles. I was meeting more and more people plagued with depression, suffering from pain and anxiety despite having faith in God.
Youth leaders, your end goal is not to entertain young people or keep them in church.
Pastors, your end goal is not to grow your church.
Christians, your end goal is not to be prosperous, keep the 10 commandments or make it to heaven.
Singles, your end goal is not to find a life partner
Married couples, your end goal is not to stay married
We have to be intentional and strategic about going and growing. It is not enough to just talk about it. It's not even enough to just make a plan. We have to walk the talk even when we can see a clear way ahead. (Hebrews 11:1) God has plans and we have to plan to be a part of His plans. We partner with Christ when we take ownership of our growth process because nobody else will do it for us. If we want our lives to improve we must plan to do so.
Full commitment is deemed an outdated and an unnecessary risk. Our version of love has a back door, so it is natural to be a little confused or disconnected from the truth of God’s unconditional love for us.
Jesus is with us, especially in our sadness and in our pain.
The prophetic is first and foremost, communication between the lover and His beloved. It is the Creator expressing of His love for us, His creation.
Secondly, it is a gift of the Holy Spirit
