In seeking the face of God, He has filled my days with a renewed excitement! He longs for something to shift in our experience with Him…actually, for the entire bride. He’s jealous for it. He knows we need it—a deep working of His presence.
We were never meant to walk in isolation. God designed us from the beginning to walk not in the works of religion, but in the transformative power of His presence. Listen to these words from Jesus afresh this morning, “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:8, ESV) Jesus taught that our lives should act as a sail to the wind that blows from heaven…and deeper still, that we were originally designed to move by a sound beyond our ability to hear.
Imagine, if the whole church was a ship visibly and powerfully guided by the winds of the Holy Spirit. What territory would be ventured into? What would be created? What victories would we see?
I tell you; the winds of transformation are blowing. Hear the sounds. Stand in the breath. Yield to a fresh leading. And in particular, let’s believe and pray for the church to arise into a fresh and powerful identity…testifying to the world of a real transformation that heals all.
