I think I need a change of mindset. I’ve been seeking vision and revelation with the wrong focus. We can’t get the fullness of God without the fullness of the Holy Spirit and we can’t get the fullness of the Holy Spirit without having a Kingdom mindset.
What if we lived our lives with Jesus as our primary reward? What if we received our identity based on Jesus not on what we did for him or how we lived for him, but just on Jesus alone? What if we lived fascinated by the revelation of His beauty, of His majesty? What would happen to our circumstances or to our greatest desires?
“He delivered me because He delighted in me” Psalm 18:19
Because Jesus DELIGHTED in me HE delivered me.
I’ve changed my mindset. Not what areas of my life can Jesus deliver me but a complete focus on the whole reason HE delivered me. He delivered me and He delivered you because He delighted in us! Knowing that the King of Kings loves me makes all other things insignificant. There needs to be a change of focus from what needs to be fixed or made new, to a complete satisfaction in knowing ‘Jesus Loves Me’.
We sing that song, over and over, growing up and here it turns out to be the only Truth we really need to plant in the core of our being. Jesus loves me this I know. The primary dream of our heart must be related to our relationship with Jesus not the measure of blessing on our circumstances.
My life’s goal is now not what I can do for Jesus, what can my ministry be, but my life’s goal is to grow in the revelation of the Secret’s of Jesus Heart! To understand more and more how much he really love’s me. To grasp the depth of “I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine” Song 6:3
Lord, release the revelation of your Love into my heart. Let it be my only desire to know you!
Furnace: An intensely HOT place
Prayer: A reverent petition made to God
Simple: not complicated, easy
So what’s a simple prayer furnace? Its a place where two or more are gathered offering non complicated petitions to God, the Holy Spirit brings the Heat!
A group of us in Bend, Oregon are going to begin a simple time of prayer on a regular basis. We will be using the up/out/in model of prayer and worship.
Its kinda cool actually.
You start with worship, lead into prayer UP-that is focused on adoration of God, speaking forth the knowledge of who God is.
Then more worship, followed by prayer OUT-Outward prayer of intercession for others, cities, nations, etc.
More worship…IN-inward prayer for individual needs and for strength in our Christian walk.
More worship….Soaking in the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Wanna Join? All are welcome….let me know.
11/11 IHOPU(International House of Prayer University) in Kansas City, the Holy Spirit moved in the midst of the students with physical healings, deliverance and the spirit of joy. The class continued for over 15 hours. The awakening continues, you can watch it on live stream at WWW.IHOP.ORG.
Over the past year, the Lord has brought me to a place of intercession and worship unlike ever before. It seems to be a movement of the Holy Spirit in the lives of many these days.
Acts 2:17 –19 & 21“And it shall be in the Last days”, God says, “That I will pour forth My Spirit upon all mankind and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even upon my servants, both men and women, I will in those days pour forth of My Spirit and they shall prophesy. and I will grant wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth beneath….and it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
The day is here! I have decided to join the Sacred Charge. Click the words to be linked to the website that will tell you all about it. It is connected to the Luke 18 Project which seeks to partner with the Holy Spirit as HE raises up a prayer movement across the globe in preparation of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. There are 7 charges given to those who dare to step out boldly and partner with the Holy Spirit in this prayer movement.
- Pray daily
- Fast weekly
- Speak boldly
- Do justly
- Give extravagantly
- Live holy
- Lead diligently
I invite you to join the Sacred Charge with me! This movement is a corporate movement that takes fellowship and unity. Be sure to tell me if you’re ALL IN with me;)
In addition to taking up the Sacred Charge, we are starting a “Simple Prayer Furnace” here in Bend. I’ll share with you all about that tomorrow, until then, pray with me as we await the Holy Spirit to fall afresh in Bend, Oregon!
p.s. check out IHOP.org! The webcasts are really amazing, they have testimonies and worship. It has blessed me and I trust it will be a blessing to you as well:)
