UPGRADING OUR FELLOWSHIP BY PRAYER

Feb 17, 2023

There are systems in place in God’s Kingdom to help a believer migrate from one level to another. It is up to you and me to rise and pursue these levels that have been made available to us by God.

Acts 10:34(AMPC) And Peter opened his mouth and said: Most certainly and thoroughly I now perceive and understand that God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons,

When the level of intimacy/fellowship of certain men/women with God inspires you, it is because they have paid the price and taken certain steps. We are all sons of God but it takes conscious effort, work, determination, and the help of the Holy Spirit to upgrade your level of intimacy with Him.

How deep/far you going to walk intimately with God is no longer His issue but yours because He already gave you Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Exodus 33:7 Moses took his tent and pitched it outside the camp, far from the camp, and called it the tabernacle of meeting. And it came to pass [that] every one who sought the LORD went out to the tabernacle of meeting which [was] outside the camp.

Whoever wanted to seek God would leave the comfort of their houses to go and have fellowship with God. Throughout Exodus, the Bible only mentions one person who never departed from the presence of God: Joshua. This means only he cared enough to take the relationship he had with God to a level that the rest of the Israelites, who were only contented with enjoying the general dimension of God’s blessing, were unable to.

Exodus 33:10 All the people saw the pillar of cloud standing [at] the tabernacle door, and all the people rose and worshipped, each man [in] his tent door.

We desire to see the power, wisdom and diverse dimension of God manifested in our lives but are we willing to forsake our comfort zone and pursue God right where He is? Many of us do not want to leave our comfort zones, but if we are to manifest God on a scale we have never been before, we have to abandon these comfort zones that we have created for ourselves.

The glory doesn’t come where you are, there is a place/tabernacle of meeting which will demand you to leave your comfort zone or house. And one of the systems that God has instituted for us to grow our fellowship and encounter Him is the platform of Prayer.

Luke 9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe [became] white [and] glistening.

This is what exactly happens in the place of prayer when we upgrade from merely asking for material things like sugar, shoes, etc., and begin to ask for encounters with God. It is these encounters that turn us into vessels God will use to change families, clans, generations, etc.

God is still looking for men, it’s not enough to be available but you have to be usable; many are available but not usable. It is in the place of prayer that the Lord works on us and we are metamorphosed and become vessels usable of the Lord (Isaiah 6:7-8).

2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and from throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of [those] whose heart [is] loyal to Him.

God wants to reveal Himself but men are not available. May God help us such that our prayer platforms become a place where we are remoulded/worked into that place where He wants us to be such that heaven can find expression through our lives. (John 14:7)

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
