I’m so excited…..company is coming! We are preparing for our Meeting next weekend, and you know what that means, family and friends are coming to worship God with us.
We are going to have four services next weekend, Sat. & Sun. Please pray for us, and those that will be traveling.
We long to be closer to the Lord, and pray that God almighty will be present from the first praise on Saturday until the last prayer on Sunday evening. Pray for me that I can be spirit led with the music, I do not want to get it in the way, I just want to be a vessel fit for the Master’s use, and if He chooses to come in without music, that is fine with me too!! THERE is nothing like the sweet Holy Ghost to be present, and that is my desire, an environment that exalts God and worships Jesus in Spirit and truth.
We been making plans and finalizing them today, it was exciting for us to prepare for the arrival of God’s people next week, and how we can accommodate them in our small way. The last photo in the album of "Our people", shows us gathering in the concert hall of All Saints church, talking and planning for next weekend.
We are meeting still in Barnet at All Saints church, and Lord willing we will continue to do so. With just a small cafe, we will not be able to serve a nice, dining room style meal, but we are making the best of the situation and hope the meals that we have planned will be alright. We are on a tight budget and all the food has been prepared and paid for by our people! Everyone is rolling up their sleeves per say to work and take care of God’s people.
As I was praying for this meeting this last week, I kept thinking of the scripture….
"If my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways: then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. " II Chron. 7:14
We are "his people". "Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? As he saith also in Osee (Hosea), I will call them my people, which were not my people, and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God." Romans 9:24-26 That is us!!! Hallelujah! We have been grafted into the living vine, we are now children of the King, because of Jesus.
Since we are "his people", we must humble ourselves and pray, and seek His face, and turn. We can’t just pray we must change. Turning from our wicked ways….THEN HE WILL HEAR, FORGIVE, AND HEAL!
That is how I’m praying, seeking his face, praying for God to heal us, our land, our people, our jobs, our families, our church.
II Chronicles 7:14 was spoken to Solomon by night after he had finished the house of the Lord, and had been praying to the Lord. This whole chapter is beautiful, read it.
We are so privileged to be called "his people"!
