Most of you know I serve on Quest. I just got back Sunday and once again God showed up and showed off and it was incredible. Not only for the Questers but also for the staff. Before I left I received a text message from one of my clients and it said this God has a habit of chasing after leadership too. Let Him catch you and see what happens. Well he caught me. He spoke to me through a friend of mine with this statement. “Stop trying to create the absence of sin and start cultivating the presence of the Lord.” I had to just sit there a minute and actually ask him to repeat it again. Sometimes I think (me included) that we focus so hard on trying not to sin that we miss it! We try to prevent sin instead of just focusing on God more. There are things that need to be done. Pray, listen to worship music, study the word and be washed by the word. If you do all things then it makes it very hard for sin to creep in because your heart is with Him. Your heart is filled with Him which leaves no room for anything else. Be blessed today!
…Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. ~ Ephesians 5:25b-27
God tells Moses, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14
8 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may [a]be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will [b]have success. Joshua 1:8 (NASB)
Have been listening to a song called Clear the Stage which broke me.
A lyric from the song says.
You can sing all you want to
And still get it wrong;
Oh, worship is more than a song
