If I could describe today in one word, that word would be.....STILLNESS!
Today was a day like none I've ever experienced in my life. I went to David's Company Rehearsal as I've been doing for the past few months now and God's presence definitely invaded the atmosphere. In our time of worship, God's glory descended upon the atmosphere and you could see, and literally feel shackles, chains, hindrances, obstacles, etc. being removed. I tried to lift my hands, stand, kneel, bow, but I was literally, STILL because His weight was sitting on me. My arms were frozen at my side in awe of His splendor and all I could do was weep. It was breathtaking!
God was speaking to me and although the process can be painful, I allowed myself to be broken. It was hard, but transparency in His presence yields favor in the eyes of man. While praying in the Spirit, something Terry Savelle-Foy said kept coming back to me. She said "you will never outgrow warfare, you must simply learn to fight", which led me to Matt 11:12. The manifestation of this scripture was in frontal and proximal view, the devil was seriously in trouble... But it didn't stop there 'cause here came James 5:16....Seriously, I'm telling you, intensity is only a fraction of the word I'm trying to use because there simply are no words to describe the presence that arises when you lay all your burdens down at the mercy of His feet, walking away knowing that you are victorious 'cause God says "it is done". That joy is indescribable.
After 2 hours, we thought worship was over, then while ministering unto Him again, "Open the floodgates of Heaven" came to me and I began to weep some more. I'm just in awe of Him and I can't hide it! If I've ever been uncertain before, you can rest assure that I know it now.....God is definitely about to do something in my life and the lives of those around me and I'm rejoicing in anticipation of His glory.
