Prayer: Flow out of me, O'well, with living water from the river of God.
Holiness is not "Clean yourself up then come to Jesus" but rather "Come to Jesus just as you are then He will clean you up."
True faith walks and believes in what Jesus has already accomplished and will not be discouraged by the appearances of the temporary realm.
The gospel can be preached by an archbishop in a cathedral or by a converted drug dealer in a tent. The gospel itself is the greatness, the power, the majesty and the wonder of God on any occasion.
Paul said his objective was "by all means to save some" -- 1 Corinthians 9:22
We cannot afford to have a moment in our lives when circumstances distract us from tending the fire of His presence in our heart.
I have the exact Word I need for every situation - a specific, quickened word from the scriptures. Because this Rhema from God is in my heart, I have real sword power to use against the enemy!
I confess that I have taken my place in God's plan. It will take unbelievable strength and energy to move that vision from the realm of dreams to the realm of reality. Because of the Holy Spirit in me, I have the strength.
There are those in the Body of Christ who are still in a very dry place spiritually, but beginning to move up mountains towards a fresh anointing. They have crossed the desert sands and are positioned for the spiritual ascent to the heights, far above worldliness and carnal living.
Micah 4:1 - "Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it." God will continue to unfold and reveal His PURPOSE for us as we begin our ascent.
He is with you. Heaven’s bells continually peal with that promise of His Presence. Some people never hear those bells because their minds are earthbound and their hearts are closed to Him. Others hear the bells only once or twice in their lifetimes, in rare moments of seeking Him above all else. His desire is that His “sheep” hear His voice continually, for He is the ever-present Shepherd.
Quietness is the classroom where you learn to hear His voice. Beginners need a quiet place in order to still their minds. As you advance in this discipline, you gradually learn to carry the stillness with you wherever you go. When you step back into the mainstream of life, strain to hear those glorious bells: He is with you.
"Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." - Jeremiah 29:12–13 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me… My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.” - John 10:14, 27–28
