Panting For The Lord
GROVER to BRIAN
As we’re preparing to launch My Story, I felt the Spirit was showing that these testimonies are bullets and we are to call upon prayer folks to pray by the Spirit, when the bullets are fired, where they land, and what they accomplish when they strike the target. What are you seeing?
Testimonies are very powerful indeed! How can a person refute what has transpired in ones life’s experiences! Testimonies can be like “group therapy” in a way. So many people have deep, deep hurt issues that have not seen the light of day. But, if testimony is shared and one person reads or sees that testimony and identifies with it, and Jesus is introduced as the solution, wow, that life can be changed forever, either through the new birth or giving the hurt to the Lord for forgiveness.
The Holy Spirit can use so many tools. The internet is one such tool. It goes internationally, crossing all nations boundaries!
I am seeing intercessory prayer as the liquid oxygen to a rocket booster, or as gun powder to your bullet analogy. I believe the Lord has shown me that we as born again believers miss opportunities to share Christ, pray for people and their needs because the sensitivity to the Spirit is lacking.
Praying in the Spirit sharpens the edge of the sword and the focus is not placed on the natural but in the supernatural. Hallelujah!
We have entered into a new realm of the Spirit this year, 2016. The old is passing away! Old thinking in religious traditions. Old methods in reaching people for Christ. The old wineskins have become cracked and not able to expand anymore. God’s anointing is very precious and it is given freely to those people who dearly crave, who hunger and thirst for the Kingdom of God to be manifested!
The psalmist penned these words, “as the deer pants for the water, so my soul longs for you…” As I was meditating on this, I saw the deer’s tongue hanging out of it’s mouth, the hair on the deer was wet with sweat, and the noise of heavy, deep breathing, like the lungs were expanded to full capacity. All that deer wanted was water!
This is what expands our wineskins, our Spirit man… panting, sweating, tongue hanging out for the cool refreshing revelation of God’s Word and hearing His voice! God is marking His people! The people who are serious about walking with Him as opposed to those who just want the status quo. The fence riders are becoming rare because a choice is being made… Life or traditions of men!
We live in the best of times, trials in every spectrum of life, but, God’s Grace is abounding towards us abundantly! Keep panting… Jesus hears and He likes it… And He is giving us living water! Brian
