Word Filled Wednesday


Photobucket
As I drive past many beautiful churches my heart swells with love for God's house. Worship music, psalms lifted in praise, and powerful teaching from God's Word resonate in my heart each time I pass by a House of God. Wonder working prayers of God' children should be oozing from every door and window, .....yet I wonder. Too often there is so much pride, too much self seeking, too much carnality and complacency which thwarts the move of the Spirit and churches all over the country are spiraling into oblivion! Peter wrote in I Peter 3:38, "Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble."
Sisters, we need to fall on our faces in prayer for the churches, that God might emanate through the body with power and effectual witness. We need to demonstrate the love of Jesus and practice a lowliness of spirit, dispelling the pride that rises up and seeks to consume us. Pray for revival to overtake the land and reclaim the hills of our habitation!
