Just Flow, I
Eze.37:3 “Eternal One (to Ezekiel): Son of man, do you think these bones can live? Ezekiel: Eternal Lord, certainly You know the answer better than I do.” (Voice)
You prophesy your destiny by The Words That You Speak, The Name That You Bear, and thirdly by Flowing With God – The Creator. You prophesy your destiny by flowing with God – the Creator. Ezekiel 37:1-3 “The hand of the Lord came upon me, and he brought me out by the spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me all around them; there were very many lying in the valley, and they were very dry. He said to me, “Mortal, can these bones live?” I answered, “O Lord God, you know.” Read the rest of this entry
Dan.10:12-14 “…Since the first day you began to pray… your request has been heard in heaven… I have come in answer to your prayer. But for twenty-one days the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the archangels, came to help me…”
When was the answer released? Immediately but when did Daniel receive it? Twenty-one days later. What do you think would have happened if Daniel did not tarry in the place of prayer insisting on an answer? Read the rest of this entry
Acts 2:18 “In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on my servants—men and women alike—and they will prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels and predicting future events pertaining especially to God’s kingdom].” (NLT & AMPC)
Two things we need to understand about the prophetic as we begin to prophesy and walk in the company of prophets. The first is The Cooperate Prophetic Anointing Can Be Contagious. Please read 1 Sam.19:19-24. Read the rest of this entry
All By Himself
Ex.15:11 “Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” (KJV).
1 Kings 18 [please read] is the story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal. Elijah challenged them to a contest of gods on Mount Carmel. He said, ‘the God, that answers by fire let him be God’. So, the prophets of Baal set up their own altar and were doing their rituals to invoke their God. Read the rest of this entry
Worship Happens When…
John 4:22-23 “You Samaritans know very little about the one you worship… But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.”
2 Sam.6:20 “…Michal …said, ‘How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, disrobing in the sight of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!’ (NIV). 2 Sam.6:21-22 “David said to Michal, ‘It was before the Lord, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house… I will celebrate before the Lord. I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honour.’” (NIV). This is so huge! I urge you to spend some time just meditating on it. Read the rest of this entry
Worship Stance, III
2 Sam.6:21 “David said to Michal, ‘It was before the Lord, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house when he appointed me ruler over the Lord’s people Israel. I will celebrate before the Lord.” (NIV, emphasis added).
Every time a king is in procession, they usually have someone [a vulgar person] that plays the fool [a buffoon] that goes in front of the king dancing like a mad person, a jester. Read the rest of this entry
Worship Stance, II
1 Chr.13:14 “The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house for three months, and the Lord blessed his household and everything he had.’” (NIV)
2 Sam.6:20 “On David’s return, he wanted to bestow good favour on his household, but Michal, the daughter of Saul, came out to meet him… (sarcastically) The king has distinguished himself today in front of his servants’ maids. He revealed quite a lot, just as the lowest of the low might expose himself” (VOICE). Stop and picture this for a moment. You are coming from having an amazing time of worship and fellowship with God. You are charged up and taking that atmosphere to your home and then the first thing that greets you is sarcasm from the very people you are going to bless. How would you respond? David did not say, ‘You this woman, you are going to see my red eye today!’ I am sure that Michal’s attitude was not strange to David because he was not shocked. David did not let her sarcasm stop him from bestowing good favour on his household.
Your walk with God must affect your household. If you have a walk with God that is not affecting your family, something is wrong with that. If you have a walk with God that is not impacting your children positively, something is definitely wrong with that. Unfortunately, a lot of Pastor’s children do not want to hear anything about church or have anything to do with God. And it because their parents who are Pastors did not take the same attitude into their homes. Yet, we are also grateful for all of the Pastor’s children who are in church, actively engaging in true worship. David returned home after sacrificing to God and blessing God’s people, to bless his household. God expects us, as true worshippers, to take it back home and be consistent. Bless your home, bless your sons and daughters. Be the priest; take God’s Word to your household, take God’s blessings to your family. Even if they despise you, take it to them anyway. You have a duty to take God’s Word and blessings to your household. Even if they do not respect the prophet, still take it to them because that is your calling.
True worship happens When I Humble Myself Before God In Celebration. 2 Sam.6:20 “When David returned home to bless his household, Michal daughter of Saul came out to meet him and said, ‘How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, disrobing in the sight of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!’ (NIV, emphasis added). Kings have robes, royal garments. David did not rush home to change, he disrobed in front of everybody. It can even be offensive, obviously to his wife, because that is the natural response. However, sometimes you need to be spiritual and ignore what is supposed to be a natural response. David disrobed publicly and wore an ephod as in the inserted image.
Prayer: Father, I pray that my walk with You and my work for You will impact my entire camp positively for the Kingdom of God, in Jesus Name. Amen!
Worship Stance, I
2 Sam.6:18-19 “Then he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of heaven and gave a present to everyone—men and women alike—of a loaf of bread, some wine, and a cake of raisins. When it was all over, and everyone had gone home” (TLB)
Today’s anchor scripture is a demonstration of letting your worship flow into your words and deeds. Even though David had sacrificed after every six steps, he went further to sacrifice again when the Ark of God entered Jerusalem. Read the rest of this entry
Ps.108:1-3 “My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart! Wake up, lyre and harp! I will wake the dawn with my song. I will thank you, Lord, among all the people. I will sing your praises among the nations.” (emphasis added)
David is teaching us something very crucial about active worship in today’s anchor scripture which is, sometimes you need to tell yourself to get up and praise God. There will be times that you will need to command yourself to be active in worship. Read the rest of this entry
2 Sam. 6:15 “So David and all the people of Israel brought up the Ark of the Lord with shouts of joy and the blowing of rams’ horns (trumpets).” (emphasis added).
True worship happens When I Take Extreme Measures To Do It Right. True worship happens When I Get Physically Involved [With My Body]. Thirdly, true worship happens When I Let The Music Move Me Into God’s Presence. Read the rest of this entry
