God-Given Vision!!

Standard

10-4-14 Servolution at RLC 027

Recently, the Holy Spirit spoke clearly to me…

About the vision I received from God…

Concerning our “ALIVE! Worship service!

https://godssceneryandpromises.wordpress.com/2014/07/14/vision-from-go…-alive-worship/

He said to me,

“Your vision from God is not meant to be a one-man show!

God’s talking to other people at the same time…

Giving them a hunger to serve Him in other ways to fulfill His Plan…

Then He brings all aspects together in perfect harmony to complete His vision…

When it’s His vision…

It’s a beautiful thing…

Completely orchestrated by Him…

It’s no longer just your vision from Him…

It’s His vision for all of you…

A vision for His Kingdom!

Wow!

Now, it can LIVE…

And move as He gives it breath…

As He puts life into it!

Dry bones will come together and walk…

As He puts motion into nothing…

Something lifeless…

Comes ALIVE!

Let Jesus live in you!

Dream your vision…

‘Til it’s given back to Him…

He’ll create something from nothing!

Listen, Obey, Praise!

He dwells in the Praises of His people!

Let God’s vision go where it will go…

Let God take it to the heights…

You couldn’t take it on your own!

As it rises…

Let it soar…

And watch what God can do with it…

With you!

And the team God has placed around you for His glory!

He’s given these people to you to work with…

Help them catch God’s vision, too…

Encourage them…

Pray for them…

And let them soar…

Along with the vision of God!

Hand it all back to God…

He’ll entrust it back to you!!

Be His servant…

He’ll be your God!

Be His hands and feet in this world…

You are no longer a one-man show!

You’re reaching out…

With the power of the God of the Universe…

Leading you…

Cheering you on!

Rest in His Plans!!”

Amen!

Recently, I’ve also read these powerful words by T.D. Jakes…

“God has moved on

You can’t plan your future…

If you’re hanging around the tomb!”

 

“Pray about moving into different dimensions…

Where you’ll grow…

Learn new things…

And be challenged again…

It’s time to move to the next level.”

 

“Your ceiling…

On this level…

Becomes your floor…

On the next level!!”

You’re picking up toys on the living room floor
for the 15th time today
Matching up socks and sweeping up lost
Cheerios that got away
You put a baby on your hip and color on your lips
and head out the door
And while I may not know you I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes does it matter at all
Well let me remind you it all matters just as long as you

Do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
‘Cause He made you to do
Every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of Grace
With every move that you make
And every little thing you do

Maybe you’re that guy with the suit and tie
Maybe your shirt says your name
You may be hooking up mergers, cooking up burgers
But at the end of the day

Little stuff, big stuff, in between stuff
God sees it all the same
And while I may not know you I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes does it matter at all
Well let me remind you it all matters just as long as you do

Everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
‘Cause He made you
To do every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of Grace with every move that you make
And every little thing that you do

Well, maybe you’re sitting in math class
Maybe on a mission in the Congo
Maybe you’re working at the office
Singing along with the radio
Maybe you’re dining at a five star
Or feeding orphans in Myanmar
Anywhere and everywhere you are
Whatever you do it all matters
So do what you do and don’t ever forget to do

Everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
‘Cause He made you to do
Every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of Grace as you do
Everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
‘Cause He made you to do
Every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of Grace with every move that you make
And every little thing that you do
Every little thing you do

Are You Washed By The Water!?!

John 3:5

“Jesus answered,

Very truly I tell you,

no one can enter the kingdom of God

unless they are born of water and the Spirit.'”

The story behind the song:

-Bear Rinehart-

Needtobreathe

“It’s a song about my dad.

He’s a pastor.

He just uh, he went through –

if you know anything about how preachers are,

they just…

You know,

there’s a lot of stuff that gets said in the church.

There was some stuff that got said at our church

that actually turned out to not be true

when it all came out, or whatever.

I just thought it was a cool thing

that my dad kept his integrity throughout that whole situation.

Yeah, and we put sort of a gospel feel to it.

There’s a gospel choir on the record that we recorded.

And yeah. It’s one of my favorites too.”

9-21-13 Gichrist Park 009

Even when the rain falls

Even when the flood starts rising

Even when the storm comes

I am washed by the water

Daddy was a preacher

She was his wife

Just tryin’ to make the world a little better

You know, shine a light

People started talking

Trying to hear their own voice

Those people tried to accuse my father

Said he made the wrong choice

Though it might be painful

You know that time will always tell

Those people have long since gone

My father never failed

Even when the rain falls

Even when the flood starts rising

Even when the storm comes

I am washed by the water

Even if the Earth crumbles under my feet

Even if the ones I love turn around and crucify me

I won’t never ever let you down

Won’t fall, won’t fall, won’t fall

as long as you’re around me

Even when the rain falls

Even when the flood starts rising

Even when the storm comes

I am washed by the water

John 13:5-11

“After that, He poured water into a basin

and began to wash His disciples’ feet,

drying them with the towel that was wrapped around Him.

He came to Simon Peter,

who said to Him,

‘Lord, are you going to wash my feet?’

Jesus replied,

You do not realize now what I am doing,

but later you will understand.’

No,’ said Peter, ‘You shall never wash my feet.’

Jesus answered, ‘Unless I wash you,

you have no part with Me.’

‘Then, Lord,’

Simon Peter replied,

‘not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!’

 Jesus answered,

Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet;

their whole body is clean.

And you are clean,

though not every one of you.

For He knew who was going to betray Him,

and that was why He said not every one was clean.”

bearing twelve crops of fruit,

yielding its fruit every month.

And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.”

1 John 4:9-11

This is how God showed His love among us:

He sent His One and Only Son

into the world that we might live through Him.

This is love:

not that we loved God,

but that He loved us

and sent His Son

as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

Dear friends,

since God so loved us,

we also ought to love one another.”

and is also interceding for us.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

Shall trouble or hardship

or persecution or famine

or nakedness or danger

or sword?

As it is written:

‘For Your sake we face death all day long;   

we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’

No,

in all these things we are

more than conquerors

through Him who loved us.”
