Hope everyone’s week is humming along nicely.
It’s a beautiful, chilly North Carolina evening here. To be honest, we don’t hate it. It’s the perfect night to get some candles lit and every twinkle light on as you wind down and contemplate the wonderful things God has done in your life—even things this week you might have forgotten to thank Him for.
It’s almost time to call it a night.
Before you close your eyes and dream of sugarplums . . .
IT’S TIME TO PRAY
Our Inside Voice
The Bridge Crew is reminding you to say your prayers, and to not forget that one special prayer request. You know the one—it involves each church and some families.
We’re Gonna Need Specifics
Pray for the people are out there who want a new blessing, a new identity, and a new way of thinking and walking. They are no longer content to sleep through the night and wake in the morning unchanged. Think: Jacob wrestling with the angel. They go to bed praying and not letting go. They are longing for their place in the plan of God.
There Is Something About A Moment In History When The King Speaks Again.
Remember in the book of Esther when the horses went out and the riders began to deliver the king’s message?
. . . he wrote in the king Ahasuerus’ name, and sealed it with the king’s ring, and sent letters by posts on horseback, and riders on mules, camels, and young dromedaries . . .
Believe that we are going to get the Word out that brings others into the victory and truth we have come to know. God has other sheep who are hungry. They are seeking depth in Him and know there is more at stake than religion is telling. These are the ones who will begin to see something in the Word of God that others can’t see.
When the Jewish people stood up in strength on a word from the king, NO ONE could stand against them. People were so afraid of the decree the king sent out that they became Jews. Even governors and rulers got onboard. As in that day, maybe those who previously stood against God’s Church will recognize there is a King whose word is behind THIS people.
Well That’s . . . Interesting
Brother Nobles asked us to pray for the special request the Lord put on his heart. As the King granted Esther’s petition, the Lord will grant our petition. It will happen how and when God sees fit—but not if we don’t pray.
What if we are holding God back because we aren’t praying or preparing?
Imagine if we ALL petitioned heaven for this prayer. Imagine if we ALL began to prepare our lives for what God has in store.
Sunflowers follow the sun in the sky with their faces toward the light. We are turned toward God, facing Him. As we follow Him, we reflect (and receive) His light.
That radiant light is what people will notice as we witness (nudge nudge) and go about our everyday lives.
Where Do I Sign Up?
You don’t, but if something is tugging at your heart and you’re thinking ‘I want to hear more’, give God an opportunity to answer your prayer. When God starts confirming things in your heart as only He can do, you will know without a doubt, you’ve found home.
In the meantime, we welcome you to visit and hear a like-minded ministry who will bring the Bible alive in front of your eyes. If you’re not part of His Church, you’re missing out on a lot. Great things are happening in the Body of Christ!
To those of you out there who know what God is about to do, keep praying.
