It pays to commit our ways...

Praise the Lord! It always pays off when we commit our ways to the Lord and trust Him to bring His will to pass in our lives.

The past 6 months have been times of tremendous change for us, and as we have travelled, we've spoken to ministers and lay-people all over, and one thing has stood out clearly:

God is getting His Church ready and into place to pour out His Spirit once again and in even greater measure than before.

An unprecedented Outpouring

During the past four years we've seen the Spirit being poured out over our nation (South Africa) in unprecedented ways. However, we've come to realize that this has been but a drop in the ocean.

We sense the Lord saying, as He has said to us before, "Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes" Isaiah 54:2.

During these times of "enlarging the place of thy tent" it sometimes feels as if we are completely exposed to the spiritual "elements" and that God is going on without us. The truth is in fact the He is aligning our lives even more into His perfect will.

Become a burden "caster"

It is during these times that we learn to, "Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved" Psalm 55:22.

We also learn to, "Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass" (Psalm 37:5), as well as to, "Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established" Proverbs 16:3.

Presently the Lord has unctioned us to re-focus and "re-group" as far as our calling is concerned, and as a result we have sensed a fresh anointing and renewed vision to follow Him.

He wants to do it for you

We know that if He is doing this with us, He also wants to do it with you. So, if you sense in your spirit a renewed call from the Spirit to follow Him and do what He has called you to do, please pray the following with me:

"Heavenly Father, Your Word tells me that if I draw close to you, you will draw close to me. I am drawing close to you, right now, Lord, and I release my faith and expect a fresh impartation of your Spirit, your Anointing and your Vision into my life. I believe that every yoke of bondage that has tried to hold me back from entering into the fullness you have for me, now simply falls away because of your Anointing. I believe that the Holy Spirit now thrusts me forward into a new dimension for my life and ministry. I believe I receive, in the Name of Jesus. Amen!!!

Enjoy what God is doing in your life!

Yours in His Love and Anointing
