God is doing AMAZING things throughout San Diego county!
He has many people involved in various pools of worship, prayer, outreach and Holy Spirit is stirring things up in incredible ways! People love the outpouring of God’s Spirit, but sometimes they don’t realize the amount of prayer that is necessary over a long period of time to seed the heavenlies with declarations, petitions and praise in order to see the results manifest in our earthly realm. Prayer warriors have stood the test of time and NOW is the time for all their labor to release the birth of revival. God is in our midst NOW and the evidence of it is clearly seen!
It’s important to stay consistent with our praise, worship, prayer declarations and encouragement of one another so that we continue to build momentum. We are only barely breaking through right now, and it’s crucial to keep doing what we did to get this far!
My husband and I lead worship on Friday evenings at a place called THE BARN in Vista. It’s unpolished. Unscripted. Kind of raw sounding, if you will, because we don’t go with a plan except to allow Holy Spirit to have His way and ‘do His thing.’ We invite others to participate because NO ONE SHOULD BE ON THE SIDELINES! This is not just to observe!
If we want to enter into and experience this move of God, we are going to have to learn to throw off the old ways of doing things. We are going to have to throw off our reservations about looking silly to others. I haven’t danced in church in a long time, (which is really sad to say), but I often feel too restricted by thoughts of what others will think.
Pride will stifle what God wants to do in you. You have to want God more than you want your pride! Yesterday heard a song called Revival that I hadn’t heard since 2003 when I went to a Joyce Meyer convention. It lit a fire in me then and it did the same thing yesterday. (Click it on the right or look it up on YouTube. It’s really good!) I just couldn’t help myself! It’s a good thing my kids didn’t see me because they would have been very embarrassed at the way their mom was dancing in public. HA!! See, that’s what revival SHOULD be about. Getting revived in the presence of the Lord, and allowing Him to fill you with uncontainable joy!
When’s the last time you felt that passionate about being in the presence of the Lord? If it’s been a while, then you need to find a filling station and fill up, because you’re probably about out of gas and didn’t even know it. Sometimes, you just don’t know how badly you need a fill up until God flips a switch on the inside of you and all of a sudden you come alive in a fabulous, unexpected way!
Friend, don’t miss out. If you see God moving, get in the river. Run to the downpour. Get under the water spout and let Holy Spirit soak you in His presence. Because the reality is, if you continue to sit on the sidelines and just watch others, you’re going to leave with regret because you allowed your pride or your ego to hinder you from experiencing more of God. Holy Spirit knows when we’ve rejected Him and we’re unwilling to go any further. Those are the people that begin to be critical of those that have the fire and passion burning inside of them. Don’t let that happen to you!
When we gather to worship, we start off with prayer declarations like the ones I have listed below. They are so powerful because when we declare using God’s word, He releases angels to carry out His word, (Isaiah 55:11, Hebrews 1:7). The amazing thing is, everything we’ve already declared and things we’re doing have all been confirmed by what we’re hearing from other prophetic voices. I love it when God confirms His word! It’s like Him saying, “YES! You’re on the right track. Keep doing what you’re doing!” Here are some decrees you can speak out over your city or geographic region so help break ground.
