I am Willing to be Willing

Hi there.  I was busy this morning uploading video clips onto "Kinburnrevival7" and doing laundry when I got the song, "Be still and know..."

Okay,  time to sit down for a bit before I run to the store and get a birthday cake, card and supper fixings.  I sat down and asked the Lord where to open my Bible and I got Haggai 2.    The Verse, "The silver is mine and the gold is mine." stood out to me and I thought about it.

I'm so willing to work to bring dreams to pass.  I love sowing seed into other people's lives.  But am I willing to wait on Him if that's what He asks?  That's a tougher request.  We can get so busy doing so many good things, yet we have nothing if we don't spend time with him first.  Like the Bible says, "Apart from me you can do nothing."(John. 15:5)

I am feeling the nudge to get a good camera so I can capture Healing videotape clips on the streets etc. and post them onto youtube.   I also want to get a back up computer so that it won't be so crazy next summer at Logos Land.  But you know what?  God knows all about it.  He knows about the bills better than we do.

So I started waiting on Him and the tears started falling.  All I could say was that, "I am willing to be willing!"  He hears and he answers!  My heart might not know why I am making excuses but I am willing to change.

Five minutes later, my daughter called and offered to get the cake and stuff for me because she's going into town anyhow.  Isn't that amazing?  Now I have a whole 2 hours just to sit at his feet and make spaghetti sauce.  I am laughing as I write this.  Who do I think I'm fooling?   Holy Spirit is so good to us.  He'll help me spend the next couple of hours in the word, waiting on Him and yes the spaghetti sauce will get made too.  Amazing God!

Have a great day as you determine to be willing to sit at his feet and listen.
Big hugs,

Glory Within....

The glory of God is coming out of us.  We keep looking around for the glory of God to come down and visit but God keeps telling me to release the glory that's already in me.   As I do by praying for others for healing, blessing etc.,  the joy of the Lord increases in me and I can feel the level of fiery glory increasing inside of me.  It's so awesome!

So for me the key is to praise and worship and then ask Holy Spirit what I am allowed to declare over people, situations, cities etc.  As I release his 'now' word I have occasionally seen small bursts of light out of the corner of my eyes.  I asked the Lord what it was and he said that it was angels taking off.

I hope this helps you.  We can all release the measure of God that we have already received.  Spending time with the Lord is never a waste.  You cannot give your time to the Lord in waiting on him and singing to him the songs he wants to hear and not come away changed.  It's impossible.  He's the greatest giver there ever was.  If he wouldn't withhold his son from us, how can we think that he won't freely give us all things?

Last Friday night our worship leader was playing and prophesying.  She encouraged us to say his name, "Jesus".   I took it one step further by singing who he was to me, Wonderful Counselor,  Prince of Peace, my lover, my helper, my Savior, Righteous Judge, Rose of Sharron, Ancient of Days.  The glory of God increased  as the spontaneous song went up.  A fellow told me later that as he came to stand behind me during the worship he nearly fell down.    I was blissfully unaware of what was going on.

Holy Spirit loves our worship.  I was taught by Ray Hughes about the power in a spontaneous song and it's so true.  Try it out sometime! Here's the link to the article I wrote about it...

Have a blessed day with Him!
