Get outside on a beautiful sunny morning and feel the stillness while “the dew is still on the roses” and know the peaceful, incredible love of The LORD as you meet with Him there.
I didn’t exactly get out there this morning — too cold up here in the North of England in mid-March — but the beauty, the stillness, the peace and quiet, and The LORD were all there.
“Come and meet Me here,” says The LORD. “Come, let Us enjoy a few precious moments together before your day gets too rushed, too crowded. Let Us talk together!”
It is such a gentle moment, such an irresistible invitation, that I cannot refuse – indeed I will not refuse.
There is such peace in these moments, and The LORD really does mean it when He invites us to ‘talk together’.
It’s a two way conversation. Not heavy, not pressured like the rest of our day, but gentle, loving, an exchange of words.
The LORD is so very much aware of the pressures of daily life today, and He wants us to start every day off in His presence, walking and talking peacefully together.
It is tangible, like early morning mist, and it is a few moments just filled with love and peace. Listen to everything The LORD wants to tell you. Hear His heart on the things in your life.
I would that this message gets through to every person in the world. From the poor and homeless to kings and princes.
Yes President Trump needs to hear this; British Prime Minister Sunak needs to hear this, President Putin needs to hear this, even President Kim Of North Korea needs to hear this.
The LORD God Almighty awaits you at the start of every day to walk and talk with you, just as He did with Adam and just as He has done over the centuries with those who would meet with Him.
What a joy! What a privilege!
Just do it.
Prayer Open Big Doors
You know, during lockdown, many of us couldn’t do anything but Pray.
We said, “This is so good. Not rushing around all the time!” Yet, as soon as lockdown finished, we couldn’t get back to ‘Church as usual’ quick enough!
So now, I was just wondering, is The LORD cutting down all this Church activity in preparation for Revival?
Is He taking unnecessary activities away to
a) relieve pressure on Leadership, and
b) make space for The Holy Spirit to move as He wants to move?
The storm before the calm before the next storm!
I believe this may be a Revelation from The LORD Himself to prepare us for slimming down The Church, ready for action.
The Church has been so caught up with its own busyness that she has forsaken much of The LORD’s business.
The Church is doing what The Church wants to do rather than doing what The LORD has called her to do.
Many activities are ‘nice’, apparently social activities that have no God-given authority or approval. Much effort and expense is thrown at mans projects that have no grounding in God.
I believe that The LORD is in the process of letting these activities die off for dwindling support in order to allow time and space for The Holy Spirit to introduce God’s agenda.
All this in preparation for the coming move that will sweep thousands into His Kingdom.
List all your Church and personal activities and bring that list before The LORD. Let Him guide you through what to keep and what to discard.
It may be painful and involve some personal egotistical sacrifice, but both you and your church will be much better prepared for The Holy Spirit to start His work among you all.
Go on — you know you want to.
You know The Holy Spirit is nudging you to focus more on His agenda. This is preparation for the coming season.
