On The Fast-Track - Kingdom Come to Earth
My friends I’m sitting in my tiny office overwhelmed with expectation. I’ve had encounters with God this week that still freak me out. I feel like I’ve been thrust on the fast-track to come up to speed with the Holy Spirit. And next week I’ve asked my friend Janet to share an astonishing encounter with God with you here at SUM. You won’t want to miss this one.
As I travel this fascinating and mind-blowing journey, God has asked me to bring you along with me. But, we need to visit some of the basics still.
A week or more ago, we talked about how I walk in nature, God’s creation. I listen to worship music on my iPod. So many of you shared your worship playlist and they are fantastic. My current favorite I just loaded onto our Facbook page. So what is next?
I walk for an hour. I’ve found if I walk for only 30 minutes I miss out on hearing from God. And please understand this, I don’t always hear from God every time I walk. I hear from Him when He has something to say.
After listening and singing along with my music, I turn it off. I walk in silence. It’s after I have spent time reading His word, then praying and finally in worship and when I’m walking along where there are no people or distraction, only nature, that is when I will hear from God.
Do you know that most people cannot be silent? Thirty minutes of silence is unheard of in today’s culture. We have electronic devices to keep us company 24/7. My friends,
GOD WILL NOT COMPETE FOR OUR ATTENTION.
I don’t know how to say this any more clearly. Unplug, go somewhere in nature or secluded. Worship, pray and then just listen. Marvel at creation. Ask God to delight you. (He loves to do that, by the way) God wants all of us and our silence and willingness to just listen intently for Him stirs His heart.
I understand that two hours out of your day is impossible for many of you. I get it. I was a working woman once and a young mother just trying to get through on survival mode. But start somewhere. Spend some time with God and learn to listen.
I’ve shared some real practical ways to grow closer to God and to experience His presence but NOW, now I can’t wait to share with you what happens when you DO live in His presence.
Next week I have a video to share that will rock your world. At least it rocked mine. I’m hearing reports from all over, many from you, of encounters with the Most High God.
My friends, something is brewing. It is a revolution. God’s Love-Revolution. And we’ve been invited to be part of it. Many will miss this opportunity but for a few courageous believers who are not afraid to be weird for God we will live smack in the middle of what is coming. There is much to learn and God has a giant calling on our lives. And the best part…….
We will experience His divine presence in ways never before. There is healing ahead, glory clouds, rain indoors, and so much, much more. But there is a price. So next, we will be talking about what it’s like to live in His presence and how the Holy Spirit is intricately part of this experience and finally we will count the cost.
My friends, out of our worship we receive God’s glory and through His power we deliver it to the world with authority. This is what the Kingdom of God come to earth is all about.
So, ready for some profound stuff?
Bring it Lord, Jesus. Bring it Holy Spirit. Anoint the believers here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage. God, we declare this hour We are part of the Fellowship of the unashamed.
BIG hugs, LynnBTW, I might add a thought. Don't think for one minute that these posts and our responses are not effecting our spouse, our children, our world. God's presence in an ordinary woman is unstoppable and powerful. (I have more to share on that too)
