Words for Our Body

As the Lord continues to have us SOAR with Him, His Spirit has been giving us words, visions, and dreams to reveal God’s heart and thoughts for us.  The following are words in this NEW season.

Sunday, July 24 – Pre-Service Prayer

“glorious happenings,” picture of Vans shoes – God’s love is “off the wall” for us, picture of a tug boat – tug boat “Holy Spirit” will provide steering and direction, also the tug boat pulls larger vessels that reflect God who is behind us as we move ahead, “favor and fervor,” “joyful not fearful,” “excitement” – God is exciting and these are exciting days, “declare God’s power and authority” – The door is already unlocked and opened.  Jesus is the key.  Jesus is in our hearts.  We just need to walk in.

Dream from Lily at our home being broken into and us catching the robbers in the act of trying to steal.  The Lord is showing us that the enemy is out to steal, kill, and destroy.  The Lord is exposing the tactics and the work of the enemy so that we can rebuke and learn to resist the enemy.

John 10:10  “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

We need to learn to move in the opposite spirit.”

God wants us to recognize the enemy.  He is exposing the enemy and his schemes and tactics.  The Lord wants us to learn to move in the opposite spirit so that the spirit and life that He has/is pouring in us would not be taken away.  Do not walk into the enemy’s trap whether it be offences, unforgiveness, or temptation.  The Lord wants to give us a spirit of “discernment.”  He wants us to build walls of protection.  We do not want to give the enemy any openings.  His ways are subtle but the Lord wants to give us discernment to recognize the enemy’s ways.

Wednesday, July 20 – Prayer Gathering

Matthew 9:16-17  “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the path will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse.  Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins.  If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.”

As God is doing a NEW thing within us and our Body, we need to be aware that the new will not be able to fit in the old or the former ways of doing things.  We need to be sensitive to what the Holy Spirit is doing and how we are to cultivate a new “mindset” or “attitude” to what God wants to establish.  Whatever is in the way (in terms of the old), we need to be ready to discard it in order that we allow God to fully fill us with the new wine.

We need to develop a new wineskin.”

How do we cultivate or develop a new wineskin?

S  –  Spirit-led

O  –  Obedient

A  –  Accountable

R  –  Relationship

Vision from Lily of a “gift box with pretty bows, poka-dots, and flying wings.”  The Lord has desire to give us gifts, “presents.”  The Lord was speaking about our relationship with him and specifically about spending time with Him.  It is meant to be simple, fun and uncomplicated.  It is not a yoke of burden or heaviness.  The gift box reflects not only the presents/ gifts he wants to bless us with but He, himself.  The Lord wants to surprise us each time we spend time with Him.  What is sometimes expected in terms of a gift might actually be a very nice “surprise.”

Encourage the Body to ask God, “how He would want each of us to have fun in spending time with Him?”  It will be unique and different for every one of us.   God wants us to have fun in spending time with Him.  What is fun to one may not necessarily be fun to another.  Be free to allow God to speak individually and for us to respond.
