Signs and Wonders.
Well, well, well, that was no ordinary Sunday Dinner…..
Do I tell you the safe things…
*Dinner went wonderfully.
*conversation flowed and strangers became fast friends.
*and I managed to make an acceptable cuppa tea for that Australian…one that made him smile and his eyes sparkle.
do I tell you the radical things… things which might make you feel uncomfortable about a God who cares and moves within His people? A God who exists and might not fit in the box you made just for Him on the shelf in your heart. The type of things which will make you face facts that miracles are still happening… bones and hearts can be knitted back together in an instant…
Do I tell you about the moment He entered the room… and it was like a heaviness. A heaviness which made you feel like you did when you were a kid jumping off the diving board feet first and you were sinking deep. Do you remember that jump? In an instant your ears were muffled and you could hear nothing. No I mean it, you could actually hear nothing. It would feel like everything was standing still and your jump was the only thing in the whole world. You would sink deeper and deeper and when your feet touched the bottom of the pool you would push up and rise to the surface to hear sounds that had been going on all along… but you were somewhere else. Head back you would emerge and there in an instant a world came rushing to you… only last night ,we all jumped together and when we broke through the meniscus we all looked around transformed.
All of us still soaking in transformation…it began….
* hearts restored and oppression lifted
*laughter erupted which had been silenced and shamed for too long.
*stereotypes broken…freedom offered
*broken wrists fully healed.
*lost souls won over as she laid neatly on a pillow.
*a fathers hug handed out …truth spoken into a softened heart.
* unspoken visions validated…and called out
*babies tucked away in wombs danced for their parents and the adventures they would be on.
Like I said… it was pretty amazing. My brain is a bit all over the place as I slowly take in all that happened. I haven’t seen such things in over a decade or so… and to say I am excited about the part I get to play in it, is an understatement. So jump in and push towards the surface to be transformed.
Today is Passover… so don’t loose track of Who set you free… and what promised land you are going towards ….don’t bring your old ways… there are no bricks to be made where we are going…there is only trust in the unseen and full freedom from a captor. You aren’t being freed because you are slimy little sinner… you are being released as a cherished bride who had been stolen away. No longer should you walk as a slumped over slave with a harsh master… Walk upright and carry the crown you were built to carry. Don’t beg for crumbs walk with the clutched hand around an inheritance that He would die for you to receive.
