think it’s something else...
And that excites me! What? Excited about having a challenging week?
Well, yes, I am, and I’ll tell you why.
Here at HBC we have just done something significant! Last weekend we undertook 24 hours of continuous prayer seeking to hear from God about the “Next steps” for us as a Church….and God has spoken to us—we have
heard. Now that’s exciting in itself, but wait there’s more… you see, hearing from God is one thing, but getting on with what God is saying to us is another thing all together. The momentum needed can be hard work as we consider how tough it is to action what God wants. “Maybe we’ll get around to it one day?” we say to ourselves— or maybe not!
I don’t think that satan (the prince of darkness) minds that God speaks to us, or even that we hear God. The evil one is more concerned that we DON'T ACTION what God is saying. He’d love to keep us in a pseudospiritual cosy spot that “listens” to God but does nothing with it. If he can’t stop us spending time with God then he’s just as happy if we aren’t
changed at all...if we do nothing with what God has said to us.
All this “stuff” reminds us of the truth! We CAN choose to do what God is asking. We can get active and have a greater determination in the things that God has spoken to us. We can share the Good News of Jesus Christ more and more in our lives—excited by the fact that God’s plans must be
significant if the evil one wants so desperately to distract us from God’s path.
So what about you? Are you going to be satisfied with the experience or are you going to allow God to change you? It’s our call—let’s make the right one!!
