A Timing Notice

I was telling a pastor friend about this “Let It Rain” prophetic song and her eyes lit up. That same Sunday morning, in the worship at her church, the watch faceworship leader also prophesied in song that she could see a cloud the size of a man’s hand. She told her pastor later that she saw a small cloud with a wind around it, as if it were energizing it. Even greater than what she saw was the sense of getting ready for a manifestation of the glory and blessing of God because a breakthrough was coming. Let’s note this is established in the mouth of two witnesses on the same day and neither released it as a weak-someday-somehow, but rather a now-notice. We have heard, like Elijah heard something in verse 41, and he told them to celebrate, “There is the sound of abundance of rain, there is the sound of the roar of a heavy shower, rain is on the way; I hear it coming,” but then he saw something. The tiny cloud was a timing notice because when it showed up he said, “Saddle up and get down from the mountain before the rain stops you.” The cloud meant all systems go—it was the beginning. It was time for change to begin! We too have heard it, now go look again! Melissa continued singing, “He makes all things new, let it settle over you. We are gonna go ahead and break through . . . because it’s the year of the cloud.”

Well-Intended Efforts

targets_bullseyesWhere it is the case, may the Lord show His people where their well-intended efforts have not really been necessary, or possibly even wasted, in order that they may be more efficient and effective. May He help us discover more accurately where we need to concentrate effort, time and finance so that His purposes may best be served. “Mark a life of discipline and live wisely; don’t squander your precious life.” (Prov.8:33, Msg)

Look Beyond Changelessness

When hope stumbles in starvation and is deferred to the point of heartsick, it is hard to get excited about “looking again.” Realistically, it might be difficult for some to catch the “go look again” alum_canzeal just because they are drained by time and waiting. That particular event in 1Kings 18 was the completion of a three year ordeal. When changelessness lasts longer, like decades, it might take a cattle prod to get us to look again, right? Empty expectations pile up like empty cans (and you can at least sell the cans.) Worn-out hopes won’t even salvage anything by the pound. Nevertheless, consider Melissa’s “Let It Rain–Go Look Again” song a release of an official challenge to believe God is bigger than the debris of experience. Even if you are kicking the cans of empty expectations, dare to go look again until a “cloud” of hope appears. Dare to hope God is gonna show up and you be determined not to miss the first clue.

May He Place A Guard

heart guard

 

As you have received a touch from the Lord and as you have received a move of the Holy Spirit within your life, may you retain everything the Lord did in that moment or in that time period. May He place a guard upon your heart and your spirit that no attack or accusation can get past to steal or taint that touch. “The blessing of the Lord—it makes [truly] rich, and He adds no sorrow with it [neither does toiling increase it].”Prov.10:22

Comprehension And New Thoughts

Clouds And Drought

rain and cloudClear skies usually signify good times, but clear skies are not a positive when rain is desperately needed.  Cloudy skies are welcomed when they signal the end of a drought.  If the drought is financial, rain means money is coming with relief.  If the drought is a matter of heated circumstances that are daily burning possibilities and potential, then rain is welcomed change.  If the drought has dried up the life flow of former relationships or any hope of new ones, then the rain means restoration and new streams.

Not Lose Grip On Word

grip WordAs the people of God assemble today, may they hear and feed upon the life-giving, life-enhancing, life-changing Word of God. May they take it out the door with them and into the week ahead. May they not lose their grip on it and may Its effective truth stick to them like glue through the whole week, through every circumstance, through every encounter.

“Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word, 19 and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. 20 But these are the ones sown on good ground, those who hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.” (Mk.4:18-20,
