Another post this weekend!
It is definitely due to the added time on my hands having taken friday off, and just spending the afternoons reading and sitting before the Lord.
I asked rachel if i should link my blog to my fb and twitter and she said a definite Yes, but i am like, hmmm probably not yet. i know of a few friends who read my blog, but don’t totally know who does, and i kinda like it that way for now. I know a time will come, but till then… But it is also this way which i love that rachel compliments me, being so opposite and just always challenging me.
Where should i start on today’s post? well i have been recently praying over my own direction and call for my life, and am taking all the time i need and even more to process and discern before moving forward or even telling it to you here. but you can always still pray for me, God knows
But through that seeking, God has also continue to revel to me many things and the way he sees things happening around me, and i thought of writing them here as a means of sharing and a personal reflection for my own reading later.
I personally feel that God is leading his people around the world into a new season and time. We have been and will always continue to seek to do great things for God, but now at a different level and different dynamics.
We used to be wanting to do great things for God in our own, and it had been great and God had brought great successes around the world. We would build great auditoriums for worship, starting many things that are parallel to the world like Godtube and succeeding, and just be good at doing evangelism through the church and through traditional means, and we have grown by the grace and power of God. Like a candle shining and giving warmth, but under the table.
But now i believe it is time where we start reclaiming things for the name of God. Claiming back the best music, the best arenas, the best locations and the best everything. and it is already happening. From wanting to build our own church buildings, to partnering with private corporations to build auditoriums with malls on the side, leveraging on their expertise and fiances. Renting the biggest stadiums built for sport, to conduct rallies and conferences. Instead of starting a parallel idea for God, we are claiming our stake in social media and the internet, with mission organizations and christians making their voices heard on these non-secular platforms. Instead of collecting funds from christians to go feed the poor in other countries, many non-profit organizations are going into the world to collect their money, and to give it to the needy in the name of the Lord. Our leaders will be so effective and wise that they will be demanded and headhunted by the private sectors. Christian videos will have the highest hits that websites have to put us on the front page just because it makes most sense. our organizations will have the most followers every platform. We are going to be the candle on the table, the city on the hill that cannot be hidden.
And we praise God for the season that has past, for if we had skipped that season, we might just have been snuffed out the moment we get placed on the table. But greater are the days ahead.
I think this stems from one thing, Legacy. many 2nd generation christians who have been brought up in the faith from birth, are now grown up to be in positions of influence and power, boldly moving in faith and authority, not afraid of the world, not happy to just read history, but hearts set on writing it.
Christians being great at what they do, singers, engineers, pilots, managers, bankers, sportsmen and women, all in the world, being the best in the industry, sharing their testimony and giving God all glory.
I foresee a group of Young people, all at the peaks of success in every industry and nation, banding together to testify the Glory of God in one place through one platform. Stewarding their stories of success by imparting faith and boldness to the next generation.
The prayer is not “God please include me in your plan” but rather “God do not leave me out of your salvation plan”
