Something crazy awesome happened at Destiny Christian Fellowship today. The presence of God was so intense but in the physical you wouldn’t have been able to tell. There is something powerful that takes place when God’s people corporately shake off the burdens that they are not supposed to be carrying depression, weariness, fear and allow God to set them free!! It takes the act of doing something about it, not just sitting back and allowing ourselves to stay in the rut that we may be in.
This morning as I was exhorting the church, God had me ask them corporately to shake off what was consuming them and then shout the shout of victory and declare over their lives what they want freedom of. I’ll tell you what, that church was NOT the same group of people in the last worship song that they were for the beginning of worship. Heather gave a powerful word of when you are in a difficult season to put one foot in front of the other and not give up. Pressing on toward the prize.
Vicki, then shared the confirmation of the word and prophetic act I asked the church to do. It was exactly what Heather and the team were talking about back in Pre-Service prayer. What they were releasing and declaring before the service even started actually physically happened!! That is what happens when you attend a church that allows the Holy Spirit to have freedom to move and release the congregation to use the giftings God has given them. Those gifts did not end with the disciples! Hallelujah!
Then Doris nailed it when she said after communion that we are not taking a big enough bite. That we are satisfied with a trickle when God has a flood for us. Whoa!! That word totally confirmed what God had just told me during our examination time during communion, which by the way Josh Hjertstedt, was one of the most powerful communion services I can remember. The service was then finished by Pastor Ken Callahan’s incredible word that tied together every word shared and encouraged us how to walk in freedom.
Job 14:7-9 ‘At least there is hope for a tree:if it is cut down, it will sprout again,and its new shoots will not fail. Its roots may grow old in the groundand its stump die in the soil, yet at the scent of water it will budand put forth shoots like a plant. ”
AT THE SCENT OF WATER!!! It will sprout again!! Are you desiring to know God in a deeper way? Do you want to know and feel His presence? All you need to do is SHAKE OFF literally the burdens and heaviness you feel. Ask forgiveness and Thank Him for the freedom He paid for on the cross then Receive His love, peace and freedom. One thing I said this morning, to intercessors out there who are carrying burdens that are not theirs. Don’t get God’s burdens confused with your passionate emotions. For Jesus said, “my yoke is easy and my burden is light . Take my yoke upon you and learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart and you will find rest for your soul! RECEIVE YOUR FREEDOM TODAY!
