Living in surrender will teach you to find the secret path of Prayer, and how to effortlessly ascend upon it’s steps with Anointed strides, as you are elevated into the realms of The Spirit and raised into Heavenly places, where prayer becomes communication and Union in communion in the beauty of His Presence.
Prayer becomes, prayer descending, from this secret place of being in harmony with His heart, and utterance being given on earth to what has already been established and Authorised from Above.
Such prayers are not requests, they are the Authority of God released and realised in the earth.
Learn to allow the Holy Spirit to carry you up, so He may also carry His will down, through you, with words of Fire, breathed through your lips, released in prayers being birthed in the earth.

We have had it the wrong way around for years!
We have understood that the Church needed a Word to clean them! That they needed to be preached “on Fire”.
Recently I received a life transforming shift in my understanding!
It is not when the Church is preached on Fire that the Word becomes Powerful in them.
It is when the Holy Spirit begins to cleanse our hearts, when we become Messengers of the Truth, celebrating the uncompromised and un-diluted Word of God.
When the Holy Spirit comes to wash us, the Word becomes Alive in us and becomes the Power of God through us, and we become the burning Torches of Truth — the Light in a darkened world!

I want to remind my brothers in the ministry.
The Anointing does not make you a V.I.P. — it makes you an R.I.P.!
You REST IN PEACE so that Jesus, the “Feet-washer from Nazareth”, can live His Life through you.
The Anointing does not make you big.
The Anointing makes you very small!

It’s in our willingness to disappear, so God may appear, that the Holy Spirit is welcome and the Fragrance of His Aroma is freely released.
There is a way wherein we may do things that will honour Him above all.
Where it is no longer about us, but about Him, where we do not have to be the center of attraction, but where He becomes that — sometimes not even through us — but through others around us.
It is when it does not matter anymore and when we are able to rejoice in seeing Him work in and through others also, beside ourselves, when we truly become sons in whom He delights to express Himself!
