Overwhelmed by God

Standard

Ezekiel 37:1 (NLT) ‘The LORD took hold of me, and I was carried away by the
Spirit of the LORD to a valley filled with bones.’

When we surrender our lives to God (not just going forward on an alter call) but doing what He has called us to do, then He takes a hold of us!!!

the reason we host PRESENCE is to bring the power of God into church life- by bringing His people into contact with Him. When was the last time you were carried away by the Spirit of God!! Yielded, abandoned, weeping, laughing, free un-selfconcious worship?

It’s the ‘carried away’ moments that set our course for our whole life. OUr word is filled with people in depression & living ‘dry bone’ lives – We must be filled with the power of God to bring supernatural answers to transform them into an army of believers building His kingdom.

God’s purpose is to touch us, so we touch others – in valleys, dry bones. He doesn’t always send us to the most convenient & pleasant places. But we will always love
His will when we are sent by Him!

See you in church!!

    Yes let us pray that God equips us for the lost. That our unique talents be used to reach others, and that we encourage each other and support each other as God’s family. With these times people are questioning and looking for answers and comfort.

    Thanks for encouraging us Ps Phil

    I especially liked the parts u said…
    “When was the last time you were carried away by the Spirit of God! Yielded, abandoned, weeping, laughing, free un-selfconcious worship?” “It’s the ‘carried away’ moments that set our course for our whole life…”

    Amazing…it’s truly the presence of God that empowers us and fills us to touch the lives of others…

    I love the comment you make that God doesn’t always send us to the ‘pleasant’ places but we will always love his will when we are sent by Him. That is so true! When we are willing to ‘go’, he turns our heart to the people and places that he loves…

    How good is good.

    Thanks Ps. Phil for your thoughts.
    God bless

    Powerful message! It more than clearly underlines the need to be in the presence of God / coram Deo. It sets you free to be used to touch, reach & heal others. Time, and time again we need to be taught messages like yours, so that we keep on focussing on the things that matter in life. Thanks for sharing, and be blessed!
