Just about an hour ago I got stopped by a pack of geese crossing to get to the other side of the road. (Padum! Lol) This causing traffic and delay from my race to work. The only regret I have is that I didn't take a picture as I waited. Sometimes God causes you to stop to look at his wonders and creation. In this God moment I am reminded of His miracle in me. He rerouted my travels to work this morning to reflect on the journey from where God has birthed me to where he has planted me today. Even though this moment delayed me from getting to work on time, I was struck with emotion reflecting on the journey that has brought me from glory to glory. The Lord has delivered me, expanded my territory and fulfilled His promise with a promise for more. In all of that all He ask us to love Him and plant seeds of His love.

Without getting into details of my testimony of what God has delivered me from and how He has expanded my territory, I share this with you. Rushing out to get to work with some grace and maybe in just a nick of time, all I did was whisper a prayer this morning saying, "God helped me be aligned to our time and season and display Your best in me." Then He stopped me in my haste to see His miracle. Why worry about anything when God is caring for all? The bible says, Do not be anxious of anything, but in all things pray about everything. (Phillipians 4:6) In our anxiousness and worries God is walking us into the solution He has provided for the problem. In our lack, He has is delivering provision to supply. We race instead of pace ourselves to our destination that often brings ahead of His time, to then having to stop and wait for the divine time. Be encouraged, be patient and be still enough to see His wonders. This is a seed of encouragement for whoever shall desire to receive.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Sometimes in our lives we find that what God has displayed for us is more than enough. There is the feeling that we hold enough power to sustain us for the season we are in. In other words, we stay in the same spiritual movement, therefore we become stagnant. However, God wants us to seek more in our spiritual walk in order to truly understand what it is to be in His image. Our journey is to seek the very face of God until His face is found in us. To discover His face, is to discover who we really are (but that is another topic for another time). In turn, when His face is seen in us, the power and authority of God begins to break loose allowing His glory to consume us everywhere we go. (Shout a praise!)

How do we seek His face and gain such expansion of power? To dig deeper is to exercise the power of God. The exercise comes in studying the word, digging deeper in prayer, and building relationships as a church (Referring ourselves as a church). As important it is to find a home church and to fellowship amongst the members of the house we worship, that place is a training ground to what we would do outside of those four walls.

This power is not just for us, it is to build the body of Christ as His bridegroom. We are called to speak and move in it for our family, and those God is calling to be drawn into His light. However, we must begin to take the limits away from ourselves to believe we can claim greater heights with God so He can move through us. There is a spiritual mountain that is higher than the Everest, higher than any Andes mountain. Be encouraged to know that it does not take physical strength and great courage to conquer it. It takes Faith. The good news is, your faith can come in the measure of one grain of a mustard seed. Because of His mercy, that measure of faith can move a mountain (Refer to Luke 17:6). (Shout a praise!)

Jacob was able to have access to the ladder that led to the heavens. (Genesis 28:12) This was simply done in resting on a rock. We are redeemed upon the rock (Psalm 78:35, Psalm 18:31). The instruction is within what He has instructed. Rest in faith, so to hear His instructions so to get up and follow it. Then trust in God and not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). We can no longer be like the paralytic that awaited by the pool of Bethesda for someone to pick him up when the waters would bubble up. God has already spoken. He has told us to, “Stand up, pick up your mat, and walk!” (John 5:8 NLT)

Can you imagine if even half of us would move in that capacity? If our churches would become one in worship? God would be the strong tower upon our cities and across the seas. The waves of revival will truly manifest, opening the heavens, pouring in the floodgates of heaven upon us all. Seek Him and His kingdom shall be found! (Refer to Matthew 6:33) Now Go!

May your hunger seek water within the brooks and be quenched with living water. Be an overflowing glory of His love upon many so that His light can consume the earth.

Holding onto nothing,
I will be as light as a feather,
With my feet in the air,
Resting on a breeze,
As the hand of God
underneath me.

I'm trusting in You
To carry me through.
Not by my works,
But Your will-
Will see me through.

Fight or Flight? Flight

poem




Today I get on a flight with no luggage.
My travel must be light.
No carry ons,
No baggage,
No under carriage!
Leaving to fly on a wind
Destination: where the wind blows.
Trusting it will take me where I need to go.

I have prepared for this flight without being flighty
Wrestled with every fear
Fought every fight
Now it's time-
to climb the height
With no strain, pull or might
I will travel light.
Stripped off every layer
I'm on a wing and a prayer
Resting on a breeze...
(Although I cannot see,
I believe He will carry me
To the place where I belong.
Where my heart knows He will take me
and carry me over the threshold.)
