Today, it was different, I was called to be brave and fearless, because You remain in me.
Who do you trust? More to the point, who do you trust with your life? Is there anyone that you would place your very heartbeat within their hands, whereas if they made a mistake, you would no longer be alive?
My faith in You is what compels me to walk in Your way. It has quieted me in order to follow Your commands, given by Your perfect communication.
"Take my life and let it be, consecrated LORD to Thee" is a song that we all know, embedded into the worship of congregations worldwide..for generations!
Is this better? Is it really all about me, to push the cart up the hill backwards? To reach what destination, exactly? What remains after the scary dark ride to the top?
This morning I recalled Kate and the testimony of healing she gave about being led to the healing rooms at Bethel in Redding. It was her last resort, as the doctors could not help, and the prescriptions didn't work. I was also reminded of the day in February 2009 when I sat in an examination room to await the next series of diagnostic procedures to find a solution to my physical ailments.
We have the greatest tool of holy intercession with God ever placed into humanity; it is called prayer. When we gather in prayer, we can work out and offer up the needs, conflicts, and issues of the church body. There is power in group prayer!
Make an instant prayer closet in your car, in the garage, or in the tool shed. Find a trail that goes to a quiet place where nothing will interrupt your personal talk with God. To create a sacred space for a prayer meeting you need to get ALONE.
Sometimes it appears so vague and so random, but there is no randomness in Your ways LORD. Please create in us the ability to take blind corners in faith...
We are to pray WITH one another. There is beauty in shared prayer, for it can be deeply connective and holy. This is not the corporate prayer we repeat in church or at an invocation. No, this is the passion of the Holy Spirit leading two or more to unveil the true matters of the heart, pleading and moving along as guided by the Spirit.
