What is your purpose?

What is in your heart to do? After having spent time with God, seeing His face, what passion naturally occurs inside of you? What vision does He give you? When we spend time with God many times He will drop things in our hearts that are simply visions of what He would have us do. Pay attention to what He shows you. What is He calling YOU to do? Don’t be a cookie-cut of someone else. Find your identity as you spend time in His Presence. Be the original that He has made you to be. Follow the visions that God drops in your heart. Many may not understand, but when we follow God-given visions He unlocks treasures inside us where we discover His joy and pleasure.  Step into your future with intention and purpose. Every moment is an opportunity. Some are seemingly small, while others can seem big. Every step you take into your future is important. Be a good steward of the time that God has given to you. Be diligent. Your life is valuable. Spend it wisely stepping into your future. (John Belt)

True Worship

God is spirit and we are to worship Him in spirit and in truth. The truth part speaks of a heart issue and a true heart but the spirit part is what many don’t understand. In order to be alive in Christ and born of spirit you must spend time with God in spirit. Listen, I will say it again, in order to be fully alive in Christ and have and maintain a healthy relationship you must worship the Lord in spirit with the right heart and if you don’t do that almost as much as you read your Bible then you may be spiritually sick. You must submit your spirit to almighty God and touch his spirit. I am not talking about singing songs or praying prayers from your flesh, I am talking about letting the power and presence of almighty God totally saturate you and you totally yielding to it on a regular basis and it communing with your spirit. God wants to spend quality time with you, not just time where you read His Word, or where you pray or listen for His voice, God wants more than that, God wants all of you and He wants to be extremely intimate with you. (Adam Becker)

If the idea of this kind of close, intimacy with God is uncomfortable for you, then you need to seek the Lord for healing in your mind, will and emotions. God will not force you. Holy Spirit will lead you gently.
But, it is very important to do whatever you need to do to be deeply in God’s Presence daily. Don’t know how? Just sit and ask Holy Spirit to overtake you; to lead you to the throne room of God. Press through any feelings of discomfort and fear and allow yourself to be enraptured with the Lord.

God is Love

God is not a program. God is not a building. God is not a financial offering. God is not a pastor. God is not a pastor’s vision. God is not a ministry. God is not a service. God is love. If you want to put God first, then let love be the guiding light in all you do.
Putting ‘God first’ in your life means putting love first. Put the way you love your family, your friends, your neighbors first in your life. Let love, in its active form, be first in your life. Do that and you’ll always be putting God first, for God is love.
God is love and love is God. The two are the same Spirit at work in the world. You cannot separate them, for they are perfectly the same entity. Every time someone loves another person, that is God. Every time someone is moved to help another person, that is God. Every time someone chooses to lay their life down for another person, that is God. God is love. God is the Spirit that is moving people to do these beautiful heart-actions that we know as love.   Mick Mooney

Knowing God’s love

“That He would grant you according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, that you being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width, and the length, and the depth and the height, to know the love of Christ which passes all knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:16-20 

Did you catch that?  “. . .that you being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend. . . ”  We FIRST must be filled with the love of Christ Jesus and THEN we will be able to comprehend the width, length, depth, and height of HIS love.  THEN we will “be filled with all the fullness of God.”

Folks, if we want to know the full, weightiness and glory of God’s presence, then we MUST walk in love.  We must be continually filled with His love and demonstrate that love.  God IS Love!  So, ask to be saturated and marinated with God.  Get your love tank filled!!

What Jesus has given us

When we contemplate all that the Lord has given us how can we NOT worship him?
He’s given us his life. He’s given us his love.
He’s given us his word. He’s given us his blood.
He’s given us his name. He’s given us his anointing.
He’s given us his power. He’s given us his authority.
He’s given us his glory. He’s given us his joy.
He’s given us his peace. He’s given us his grace.
