About three weeks ago I had foot surgery. It was something that I had PUT OFF FOR YEARS. The most important part of my big toe just wouldn’t MOVE. It was kinda stuck. It was so painful. I couldn’t walk or run without noticing it. But I just kept trying to deal with it in my own way, even though it wouldn’t go away. Prior to my surgery, I accidentally dropped a big, heavy window on my foot. The ANNOYING and AGGRAVATING pain immediately turned into desperation. Broken, I needed a surgeon. Thankfully, I found the best. The surgery was incredible. Relatively no pain. When we flew to Washington, DC last week, I was a wondering how I would NAVIGATE the airport. When we checked in, the ticketing agent saw I needed help and asked if I wanted a wheelchair. I was SURPRISED and relieved. I know how the airport is. Long lines and lots of standing. Something I can’t do. I have never been in a wheelchair at the airport. I awkwardly plopped myself in. I wasn’t sure WHAT TO EXPECT. We went down long halls and corridors to access elevators that I didn’t EVEN KNOW EXISTED. I had no idea where I was being taken. Kinda scary but kinda cool. We bypassed incredibly long SECURITY lines. At the gate, we were the first on the plane. In front of First Class. And we were given the best seats, with the easiest access. What Incredible Favor.
Forgive us God, that We The Church have PUT OFF FOR YEARS our desperate cries for Your Intervention in our lives, and we The Church do not allow the Holy Spirit to MOVE us. So we stay kinda stuck.
Forgive us God, that We The Church really don’t WALK or even RUN with Jesus, because we keep trying to deal with the same ANNOYING and AGGRAVATING sin in our own way and it just won’t go away.
Forgive us God, that We The Church act SURPRISED when someone suggests to us that we need help. And we refuse to humbly sit down, be relieved and allow Jesus to NAVIGATE our lives.
Maybe something big and heavy got dropped on you recently. And your somewhat annoying and aggravating life just became desperate.
Maybe God is calling you to do something that you are not sure WHAT TO EXPECT. Something you didn’t EVEN KNOW EXISTED. Something You can’t do. Luke 1:37
And you have no idea where you are being taken. Jeremiah 29:11
Kinda scary but kinda cool.
So awkwardly plop yourself into that wheelchair called life. And let Jesus be your guide. He is guiding you down the long halls of heartache. And the corridors of confusion. Proverbs 3:5,6
He bypasses mans incredibly long lines of false SECURITY like savings, stocks, 401Ks and investments. And gets you to the front of His security line. It’s called grace. And you get to live in it.
Best yet, He has access to the elevators of hope, joy and peace. And He anxiously waits for you to allow Him to go in the elevator with you. You just need to ask.
Better than First Class, Jesus seats you next to Him. It’s the best seat. With the easiest access to the Throne of Our Almighty God.
He knows exactly where He is taking you. You just need to hold on.
What Incredible Favor.
PRAISE: National Day of Prayer was amazing. Each event we attended, God was glorified. It was so humbling to be in that place and positioned to petition Jesus to intercede for our country. Every speaker and musician was truly used by the Lord. Over 42,000 prayer events took place nationwide on Thursday. We anticipate revival in not just individuals, but Pastors, Churches, Communities, Businesses, Media, Schools and our Government.
PRAISE: Greg Laurie was under vicious attack by a group declaring him to be anti-gay. They were demanding that he be removed as the keynote speaker at the Pentagon. Praise God, they did not prevail. Greg stood firm and held to Biblical Truth.
PRAYER: We are witnessing a move of the Holy Spirit at several local churches. This is a direct result of corporate prayer. One church body has been praying for months for the pastor. And we have seen altar calls in the last five weeks, where over 500 people have become born again Christians. Another church body has recently had 24/7 prayer for this past week. Individual members signed up to take an hour to pray. The church sanctuary remained open for the body to come and pray around the clock. We are expecting this church to break out in salvation’s and revival as well. Pray that more pastors and their churches grab this MOVE of the Holy Spirit and allow Him to wreak havoc on the kingdom of darkness.
PRAYER: Our business is under attack and we need quick recovery.
PRAYER: We had several opportunities with potential prospects in Washington, DC. These groups are Christian organizations that would benefit from marketing. Pray these become clients, as we would love to facilitate the furthering of God’s Kingdom.
PRAYER: That Christians here recognize the urgent need to prepare to be the persecuted church.
