There really are a lot of things moving at this time. Over the past few weeks I have seen movement: in attitudes; in willingness to participate; in accepting Christian living; in opportunities; in friendships and relationships.
The truth is that God is moving in this place and the challenge for us is how we respond to it. Are we going to go with what God is doing? Or are we going to stick our feet in the mud and hinder the Kingdom work that He is busy with in, around and through us?
We need to be prayerful! Friends—we need to pray!
This weeks prayer and self denial focus is on prayer, and it’s significance for us and the world. As we pray, we partner with God as He moves. As we pray, we come alongside others who need to see God move in their lives. As we pray, we see the resources of heaven poured out into the hearts and lives of the people God is at work in. As we pray God deals with us too.
Movement is a funny thing...sometimes it gets you to a destination, other times it just feels like it causes nausiation! But the kind of move of God that we desire to see, “5% Kingdom impact by 2020”, is a wonderful target for our progress as a community of faith. Yes, there will be gut wrenching times, but God is here and he is on the move.
Will we join Him?
