This weekend we have our first conference and prayer & prophetic day on Saturday in Stourbridge with Eagle Raisers and our dear Eric & Jackie McKenna. It was Eric who (gently!!) encouraged me to start my blog after many years of dithering.
It’s been a long time since we have been able to meet face to face because of Covid and I’m really looking forward to it.
Eric is one of those leaders who is a great encourager and teacher. I’m so looking forward to the weekend and am expectant to have some good things to share with you over the next weeks coming out of the day together.
The last time we gathered at Eagle Raisers was in October 2019. At that time I had a beautiful picture which I shared called The Wind of God’s spirit.
If you are interested then this is the link to Eagle Raisers and the ministry channel they have on Youtube here with a video by my dear friend, Mary.
My dear friends, I want to encourage you today with these words that I heard the Lord speak to me this morning in our church service:
Don’t miss out!!
Yesterday morning, I had the urge to contact my fellowship group to encourage them to attend the church service this morning or to watch the live stream on line. It was a definite “unction” from the Lord which I didn’t realise the significance of until today.
The presence of the Lord was so powerful amongst us today as we worshipped and the Holy Spirit ministered.
If you as a believer have withdrawn from the Lord (or you know someone who has withdrawn) in some way from Jesus or from fellowship with fellow believers in any way at all and for whatever reasons (the Lord knows all circumstances) then I encourage you and them to reconnect with the living Word, the Lord Jesus, our Father God and the Holy Spirit in worship. To connect with fellow believers who can encourage, support, disciple. We serve an awesome God.
The Lord wants to take off that spirit of heaviness or apathy from those who feel burdened and pour out the Oil of His joy. He wants to refresh you and take off those burdens. He wants to stir up the hunger and passion for Him. He is ready to pour out that living water on you.
God is saying to his children “DO NOT MISS OUT”.
Position yourself ready to receive and run with what God is going to pour out upon you. You are going to be the ministers of His Glory and His Goodness in the days ahead for the benefit of those around you-your family, your friends, your workplace, those on the street, those in need. You are going to have the provision and goodness of God to distribute.
This is the time to get into position ready to receive. May the Lord lead you my dear brothers and sisters to the place He wants to meet with you, fellowship with you and pour a fresh anointing of His Holy Spirit upon you. It’s time for the sons and daughters to be revealed for His glory and His good pleasure. Let fear, apathy, sluggishness, bitterness, division be cast aside as we rise rejuvenated and refreshed in Christ Jesus Our Lord.
This is the bible reading the Lord gave me this morning which is for each one of us: As my friend said it is a reminder of who we are in Christ and the calling on all our lives to be the ushers of change.
“The Spirit of God, the Master, is on me because God anointed me. He sent me to preach good news to the poor, heal the heartbroken, Announce freedom to all captives, pardon all prisoners. God sent me to announce the year of his grace— a celebration of God’s destruction of our enemies— and to comfort all who mourn, To care for the needs of all who mourn in Zion, give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes, Messages of joy instead of news of doom, a praising heart instead of a languid spirit. Rename them “Oaks of Righteousness” planted by God to display his glory. They’ll rebuild the old ruins, raise a new city out of the wreckage. They’ll start over on the ruined cities, take the rubble left behind and make it new. You’ll hire outsiders to herd your flocks and foreigners to work your fields, But you’ll have the title “Priests of God ,” honored as ministers of our God. You’ll feast on the bounty of nations, you’ll bask in their glory. Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, Your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever. Isaiah 61:
Bless you my dear friends and may God use you for His glory. May His Kingdom come and His will be done. Amen 🙏
