Creating 'spaces' to experience the presence of God

Castlereigh Church

My birthday present to myself or maybe I should say from God was to go to this Church In Castlereigh. I’m told this is where Australia’s only revival came from. The little structure out the front is a bell house. The sense of the presence of God was very strong underneath the bell. I was actually wobbly at the knees! I jumped up and gave it a couple of loud clangs. Great gift; Thanks God! Love You.

Trust

The Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says to the people, “Come back and quietly trust in me. Then you will be strong and secure.” But you refuse to do it. Isa 30.15 Good News

Greatness and bigness with God

May 15th, 2012

If you want to enter into Greatness and Bigness with God. Then you need to make Him Great and Big in your life. If you want God to be small and insignificant in your life, then make your time with Him small and insignificant. MG

You are created in the very image of God. Therefore your heart is good and there is huge greatness in you! Live that greatness that He has put within.

A culture of Honor

May 11th, 2012

Here are some quotes from a Danny Silk article on ‘A culture of honor.’
For more see his book of the same title. I think this is brilliant!

It is a myth or fallacy that we can control other people. If the truth were known, most people are having a big enough challenge just controlling themselves. Therefore a significant paradigm shift is required.
If we are to bring more of Heaven to Earth, then certainly we will introduce more freedom and power to people’s lives not less.
Our lives on Earth are freedom practice!
Honor is nothing less than two powerful people working together to meet the needs of one another and the needs of the situation.
The first major ingredient that honor requires is powerful people.
Jesus said “If you want to be great be a servant.”
Servants do not control people and children are creative, free and make all kinds of mistakes as they explore life daily – they’re professional mistake makers.
Another key ingredient to honor is valuing relationships. When Jesus taught the most important commandment that directed our lives was Love, He was giving us the key to creating a safe place.
An environment that is void of love is a place that needs many rules and restrictions much like you would find in a prison. No one expects love to be the culture of a society of inmates. Therefore, there are thousands of rules that make one group powerless and another group powerful. Both groups are scared of the other.
But, if we learn to excel in our loving connections to one another we have less need for rules and more room for honor. In order for freedom and power to flourish, we must have a high value for the people around us. Likewise we need a keen awareness of how our lives impact those important relationships.
Simply put, we do to others what we would have them do to us.
Powerful people make powerful messes with each other. Rather than taking power from those who make these messes, we teach other powerful people around them to confront and require respect in those relationships.
A culture of honor helps sustain a supernatural environment through preserving the freedom and power Jesus died to give us as believers
He knows that we are at our best when we breathe the freedom of His presence and walk in the power that rearranges earth to match our fathers Kingdom.

Faith > Provision

May 10th, 2012

Faith: is when you are hangin in there maybe just by your fingernails but working at remaining fairhful and hanging on, wether or not you are seeing progress.

Provision: is when the release happens and you actually see it.

Christianity has both of these, Jesus always sets things up so that Faith is required, it just is the way He put the World together. So if you find yourself in a situation where it seems hopeless unless God breaks through miraculously; take heart! You are probably exactly where God wants you to be, and that is in a situation where in (His) time you will get to see just how Good and wonderful He is.

How odd

May 7th, 2012

How odd of God to choose the Jew, but not so odd as those who choose the Jewish God and hate the Jew. Author Unknown – pre 1937.

Loving well is our greatest leadership gift.

Written Prayer

April 30th, 2012

There is such a Blessing in writing prayers out. You can refine them and make them more precise over time. You will also find that prayers you go back to have been answered.
You may think that just prayin what is in your head at the time is better or more Spirit led. But try it, write them out and refine them over time, I think you’ll like it.

Abandonment

April 30th, 2012

The problem with continual abandonment to God is that you have to keep on doing it!

Rest > Dream

March 26th, 2012

God is better at being who He is, rather than who we tell Him to be.

Perspective

February 27th, 2012

Do you believe God’s perspective is different to ours? I know He doesn’t doubt what He has said to us, or doubt that He will do what He has said. He doesn’t even have a problem with His perfect timing! Yes I think it is quite different.
