As You Go

 

“AS YOU GO” about your Father’s business today, this week and the remainder of this year, what you accomplish will far exceed your abilities and learned knowledge. You will have delightful discoveries that your Father’s hand is working beyond your immediate awareness. You will be involved in His workings without having to launch yourself for a particular mission. He will use you and you will accomplish matters for His Kingdom “AS YOU GO”. You will accomplish more “accidentally” than the enemy will accomplish on purpose. Matt 10:7  “And AS YOU GO, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand!”


Compact Together

 

As the people of God assemble today, may His powerful Holy Spirit compact us, that is, cause us to coalesce, being formed into one mass or community operating in harmony. May the ligaments in His Church hold us together solidly. And may we so be built up in love that our harmony may never be found by Him to be disconsonant. 

“For because of Him the whole body (the church, in all its various parts), closely joined and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, when each part [with power adapted to its need] is working properly [in all its functions], grows to full maturity, building itself up in love.” (Eph.4:16, Amp)


Exhibit Fruit of the Spirit

This is the day the Lord has made so…    I will rejoice and be glad and exhibit the fruit of the Spirit in it.  “22  –  But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,   23 — Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].” (Gal.5:22-23, Amp)


Praises Throw the Enemy Into Confusion

A bound church is not a prophetic church. If we are not free to proclaim the praises of God to God, how shall we prophesy the liberty of God to those who are bound? Events in the Old Testament are a physical example of spiritual truths and what was going on in the spirit realm. It is obvious from the Old Testament that the enemies of Israel were repeatedly thrown into a state of confusion and impotence when Israel praised their God (cf.2Chron. 20:21-23).(Seventh excerpt from Kathy’s article “Fresh Obedience”)


Your Home a Place of Peace

Many people do not feel secure in many locations throughout their comings and goings of a week. But I pray you find your home to be that place. May your home be a sanctuary and may you be at peace there. May you find comfort and safety within its walls and comfort from those who dwell there. May you have quiet and solitude and not be invaded by inordinate noise and commotion of nearby dwellings. There is a promise Jehovah gave Israel that I believe those who trust in Jesus can claim for their families: (Jer.30:10b, GNT) “…You will come back home and live in peace; you will be secure, and no one will make you afraid.” We are praying you discover daily that you are at peace in your home.

Fresh or Old Models

If parts of the old models become extinct or inactive during fresh obedience, it is likely they were already successfully completed or they were only temporary in purpose.  I believe we will find that many details of former models will fall into the category of facilitation rather than essential purpose.  The mud Jesus put on the man’s blind eyes did not need to be preserved and kept as a holy tool.  It was simply facilitation for an obedience, a means to an end.  Many of the acquisitions of our past examples are not to be carried into the next chapter of purpose.  Facilitation must keep a secondary role of support as we move ahead in fresh obedience. (Sixth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Fresh Obedience”)
