Preparing for a
“higher watertable”…folks the Spirit is rising…we need to have our ditches all
dug and ready…but what does this involve practically? What things can only we do so that God is then unhindered to do what only he can do?
ATTITUDES [ see Mt 5:3-10 ]…be keen to increase the levels mentioned as necessary to see the Kingdom of God established. The “Beatitudes” seen from a perspective of wanting to be AN INSTRUMENT IN GOD’S HAND to reach out and release LIFE into others. Ensuring we walk in HUMILITY – deal to any pride or arrogance in our hearts in the way we see and treat others…be hospitable to people of all cultures and life history.
POOR IN SPIRIT / MOURN / MEEK / HUNGER&THIRST / MERCIFUL / PURE IN HEART / PEACEMAKERS / PERSECUTED
MIND-SET of FAITH, EXPECTANCY – Earerly anticipating awesome things in our personal life, family life, church life etc
RESOURCES – willingness to use our TIME, POSSESSIONS, ASSETS, GIFTINGS, & RELATIONSHIPS/CONNECTIONS in a more FOCUSED way
FRESH SURRENDER – our will in alignment with God’s will & purpose
PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT – especially for Sunday services – these are the “ENGINE ROOM” of Hope Chapel – keep using your Holy Spirit PRAYER LANGUAGE to boldly proclaim the AUTHORITY OF JESUS over our church and city, and over our personal and family life…if necessary set aside specific chunks of time to GET INTO THE FLOW and KEEP IN THE FLOW of the Holy Spirit. Endeavour to arrive at all Hope Chapel gatherings ready to be a blessing poured out to the people you connect with.
2 Cor 3:18…where the Spirit of the Lord is there is FREEDOM
GOD desires to FILL US TO OVERFLOWING with His Spirit SO THAT IN EVERY AREA OF OUR LIVES WE BECOME A REFLECTION OF HIS GLORY.
The tide is rising – The Spirit of God is on the move…
