Today, are you ” flapping or flying?” You were born to fly!
(what are you waiting for part ? 2)
Isaiah 40:31 – But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.
You know when I saw this video it really spoke to me. This bird had been in prison/zoo in captivity for a long long time. Perhaps its whole life. When it is released to it’s natural environment it does know what to do naturally; that is fly.
You know so many people that are enslaved and captive unable to fly because of unnatural boundaries and limits. So when they are uncaged they just don’t know what to do. They are institutionalised to be limited to be flightless. But you were born to fly. You are set free.
The cage door is open. You have been set free by the blood of Jesus. Now wait on the Lord change, renew your strength and power and lift off and fly.
Flapping or Flying? It might take some time but you will soar again because you were born to fly.
Prayer : Father thankyou for the freedom you have bought for me in Jesus. I choose to do my part and stretch out my wings and wait on you today. Thankyou that I was born to fly in Jesus name.
I am so grateful to Jesus When I think about how he saved me!
I am so grateful to Jesus How He saved me, how He raised me How He filled me with the Holy Ghost How He healed me to the uttermost.
When I think about the Lord How He picked me up, turned me around How He set my feet on solid ground That makes me wanna shout Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus! Lord, you’re worthy Of all the glory, of all the honour, of all the praise!
That makes me wanna shout Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus! Lord, you’re worthy Of all the glory, and all the honour, and all the praise!
What are you waiting for. Something good is about To Happen (Expectant Faith.)
Psalm 27:13,14 – [What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living! Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.
THE WORD EXPECTANT
This word is an adjective meaning “having or showing an excited feeling that something is about to happen, especially something good.”
WAIT and HOPE for and EXPECT the Lord.
I just know that something good is about to happen. I just know that something good is on its way.’ Stay with God! Take heart. Don’t quit. I’ll say it again: Stay with God.(msg)
You know you might have felt like quitting your ministry or walk with God. But take heart. Something good is on the way. If you don’t quit that is, you will see the goodness of God in the land of the living. This is not a ‘waiting’ like you would do for the doctors or dentist or something bad. This is like a ‘waiting’ that you do when your a child at Christmas eve. Its an expectation an excitement, a stirring a hoping, a joy. An anticipation for presents, gifts, excitement and good stuff.
Weight or wait? You choose.
What are you waiting for? What are you expecting? As for me, I am waiting and expectant for a mighty move of God like we have never seen. Where thousands will be swept into the kingdom.
Prayer: Father thankyou that something good is about to happen, I can feel it. Thankyou you have great plans for my life and this country. Open the eyes of my heart to see all that’s ahead and let faith arise in me in Jesus Name Amen.
Listening to Holy Spirit and obeying are key to a spiritual harvest
Genesis 26:12 – Then Isaac sowed seed in that land and received in the same year a hundred times as much as he had planted, and the Lord favoured him with blessings.
At this time there was a famine in the land ( a recession), and the Lord said to him not to go to Egypt but to to go where God told him. He then told him to stay where he was in Gerar.
You know sometimes we miss God. We need His direction. He sometimes says move over here or there but other times says stay in the place you are. It’s not always the obvious choice for provision or blessing. But listening to Holy Spirit and obeying are key.
In the place God has for you, the church, the ministry, the location there is great blessing inspite of how it looks. You can be in the middle of a recession. In the middle of poverty all around you and have your socks blessed off.
In Gods alignment for this season Isaac saw an increase of a hundred fold. That’s real increase! Like the boy with the loaves and fishes, when you are in the right place and at the right time. When you give to God He can bless, break it and multiply it.
Season of increase. Supernatural Multiplication.
Prayer – Father I choose today to listen to You. Help me to be in the place you have called me to be in. Thank you when I am obedient there is supernatural harvest in Jesus name Amen.
Playing this film tonight ( Tuesday 6th Nov. 2019) on the Hope Bus. ‘My Hope.’ (Billy n Franklin Graham) If you cant come and your not a Christian why not spend 30 mins watching this today. If you are a Christian share it with others. Whatever your upbringing or background age or culture know this.. There is Hope. And His name is Jesus
Jesus Recruitment. Jesus is recruiting now. Many positions open; and you are qualified.
1 Corinthians 3:18 – For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building.
Feeling you dont fit in and there is no work for you in Church? Yes! Jesus is recruiting now. Many positions open; and you are qualified. Jesus, and the Church need you. “There is no such thing as unemployment in the kingdom of God.God has a work for every one of His people” (Bob Gordon). Working for Jesus and working with Jesus is truly the best work in the world.
Prayer Father forgive me for just being a consumer of church stuff, a spectator. I want to participate but more than that I want to be used for Your Glory . Employ me today iam applying in Jesus Name Amen.
Look whose talking. Children can and do hear the voice of God. Never underestimate that or write it off.
1 Samuel 3:3 – The lamp of God had not yet gone out in the temple of the Lord, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was lying down When the Lord called, Samuel! And he answered, Here I am.
You know the story well. Hannah had cried out for a son God answered her prayer. She then gave her firstborn for service in the church. Samuel was young. He was doing all sorts of stuff in church. Serving and ministering to the Lord and Eli. But he did not know God personally.
You know you can be in church. Doing all sorts of stuff. And I believe the children should be doing everything in church. But you can be faithful, work hard and do loads of stuff for God but not know Him.
God’s answer to a time when the word of the Lord was rare ..was a child Samuel. But as yet he didn’t know God. You know I dont want my children and the children of my generation to do all the church stuff without knowing God. Samuel needed an encounter with God himself. I believe each young person needs their own individual encounter with God to hear His voice. I dont want children to grow up without knowing Jesus personally. I believe God calls people at an early age. My job is to connect them with the voice of their heavenly father.
Children can and do hear the voice of God. Never underestimate that or write it off. Just look whose talking.
Prayer Father thankyou that children aren’t the church of tomorrow but the church of today. Thankyou that You still call children to encounter You and work for You. Help me not get in the way of that today in Jesus name Amen.
Time to get Cross. There is still time to get to the cross for salvation from hell and to be given salvation and eternal life!
1 Corinthians 1:18 – For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
The Message that points to Christ on the Cross seems like sheer silliness to those hellbent on destruction, but for those on the way of salvation it makes perfect sense. This is the way God works, and most powerfully as it turns out.
You know we need to speak on, share, and preach on the CROSS; Jesus Christ crucified. There’s power in the blood of Jesus, there’s power in preaching on the cross. Its seems sheer silliness, absolute absurdity to speak about sin, torture and death. But there is truly power in the message of the cross.
The Gospel is we are all sinners but Christ died on the cross and took my sin, your sin on himself. Theres only one remedy for sin, one cure and it is the cross. You cant by pass Jesus and the cross. We have to come to the cross that’s Jesus sacrifice for us. Believe He died for us and ask Him to forgive us.
Time to get cross.
Prayer: Father thankyou that Jesus went all the way for me to the cross. Thankyou for the power of the blood of Jesus and the cross. I believe Jesus You died for my sin, forgive me, wash me clean, be master of my life. Thankyou for the cross in Jesus name Amen.
