As I was soaking this morning, I sensed that God wants us to do an assignment when we meet again. I expect heaven’s activity to go home with us when the meeting ends. More about that at The Gathering, so I won’t write a lot about it here. If it were about information, I’d write about it. But it’s about activation, so we need to do it. Then when the action starts, I’ll share the testimonies.
Lately, God has been giving me nudges I wasn’t sure what to do with. I couldn’t see how to act on them. If this is happening to me, probably it’s also happening to you.
It’s been words of knowledge. Some relate to healing, and I’d call them out if I were in a healing meeting. But as I live a normal daily life, how do they connect? Should I save them up for the next Gathering and release them only when we have meetings?
Maybe. That’s the way we’ve seen things done in church. But Jesus found ways to release them outside the meeting. He’ll show us how if we let Him apprentice us.
So the assignment is simple. It’s found on day 5 of the 31-day devotional, “Learn To Hear From God”, at http://www.squidoo.com/learn-to-hear-from-god-day-5. Make a list of words or convictions you’ve received from God, words you haven’t acted on yet. And at the next Gathering, I believe God will set us up to start acting on these words.
So as we soak, we’ll take time to make a list. Then we’ll see what God will do.
Incidentally, I’ve needed to make a list like this often. It’s a way of making sure I don’t let God’s words and nudges slip through the cracks of a busy life and get lost in the shuffle. But Jesus said:
He that has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father , and I will love him and will manifest Myself to him.” [John 14:21-If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” [John 14:21-23]
So at the next Gathering, we’ll gather up leftover words from Jesus, like the baskets of crumbs after Jesus fed the 5000 – any words we neglected because we didn’t know what to do with them. It’s an act of love, an act of worship, and an investment in His manifest presence. At the very least, it’ll be our way of telling the Father and he Son, please come, and make Yourself at home in me. Come, relax, and know that You are always welcome here.”
