A CALL TO A HIGHER PLACE

Jun 14, 2023

There is a deep inner cry because there is more to church than we see or know today. May the Holy Spirit stir such a hunger and thirst in our hearts to go after Him more than we ever have before.

Isaiah 55:1“Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price.

John 6:35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

Acts 13:36 “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption;

The baton has been passed on to us and the entire heaven and cloud of witnesses are looking unto this generation to reveal Jesus.

What we see today is far from what God has in mind. There have to be people who look beyond their ‘hands’, whose heartbeat is after the heartbeat of heaven and who have flooded their souls with the very passion of Jesus to the extent that God’s will becomes theirs.

The burden is on us to make Jesus known to our generation.

Genesis 12:1 Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you.

God is calling us to leave the place of familiarity; it is time to get out of that environment. We thank God for where our spiritual fathers have been able to take us but the Lord is calling us to a higher and better place. It is time to walk away. (Micah 2:10)

Exodus Chapter 1-Chapter 15

If Moses single-handedly brought a nation out of bondage and displayed the glory of God until the whole nation of Egypt was on its knees, how about us who are in Christ? Should we settle for what we see or have around us?

Something has to break loose again in this house/ church. The four lepers were determined to find a solution to their hunger, God saw their determination and heaven broke loose (2 Kings 7:3-20).

1 Samuel 14:6 Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the LORD will work for us. For nothing restrains the LORD from saving by many or by few.”

God doesn’t need a million people, all He needs is a man to show Himself mighty in that man’s life, family and nation. May you be that man. (Ezekiel 22:30).

Let us not settle for less but go for everything that Jesus paid for. The value of His blood is higher than what we see in the church today.

Let’s refuse the status quo and hold on to the Master’s garment, the horn of the altar and tell Heaven to empty itself on us until our media reports the news where the church becomes the headline of the things God is doing. All you need is the willingness to seek Him.
