I am an instrument

to be enjoyed by the Lord.

It suddenly hit me. Revelation. The depths of my praise. The heights of my worship. Not just words but, life. Every note, every sound, every phrase. All of it. My praise and my worship opens the shut doors. My praise and my worship, create windows in the heavens for blessings to pour down. As I surrender my song to Abba, He stands up from His throne. He smiles. He dances over me like the waves dance in the sea. He responds with a song. A song just for me. The Words are not heard but felt like rain upon my face or a kiss on my cheek. He covers me in peace that surpasses all understanding. He answers my questions and calms my fears. His love is unstoppable and unending. forever more I will sing my song of praise. My worship will never stop. I am an instrument to be played for Him.

 

 

There Is More

Standard

This Christian walk has taken me through many different training fields. Some more difficult than others. As a younger Christian, The Lord  seemed to appease me much quicker. As the years passed and I matured, things did not come as easily.  I would question and long for the days of ‘quick appeasing’. I realize now that time does not necessarily mean wisdom. Wisdom is developed as you gain knowledge and experience and learn to use good judgment.

The struggles, trails, tribulations and wilderness that we have to walk through as Christians, gives us endurance and builds our faith, opens our Spiritual eyes and teaches us to listen for Holy Spirit’s voice. Our stamina is enhanced and allows us the ability to press in and lean on the Word of God. It is all part of a Christian’s workout to strengthen and build up Spiritual muscles and to make us warriors; Soldiers in the army of God. It is all in preparation for the battle against the enemy.

I recently attended a conference, IGAP 2013 (International Gathering of Apostles and Prophets), where I know I received a new level of impartation. Prior to attending, I had been feeling like there was more to my walk but, I just couldn’t put my finger on it. I had this anxious feeling in the pit of my belly. I was desiring to go deeper and to see a supernatural manifestation take place. My husband and our eldest daughter were there with me. We received revelation that opened our eyes to things we thought we already knew but we didn’t have clarity. I, myself not only received revelation but a new excitement and strength to move forward in my call.

We all have times in our lives that we feel like, “there has to be more”. We all get sad, angry, tired, discouraged, fearful and sometimes we just want to throw in the towel. We were not created to give up, back down or cower from the difficult things. The bible tells us in Joshua 1:9:
‘Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.’ And Romans 8:31b says: ‘……If God be for us, who can be against us?’
So be encouraged! Your “more” is waiting for you. You’re just steps away from something wonderful. It’s gonna be worth it!
