In the Deep

Praise the Lord!

God is leading us into the depths of the River of Revival! He is taking us to a place where we are learning to grow in Divine Capacity and to release the Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. The Lord is revealing to us that if we are to grow in Divine Capacity, we cannot be vessels that just receive but we must be a people that both receive and release the fullness of the Kingdom. We therefore need to be vessels with holes in them to release what we are filled with. To be a hole-y people we need to be obedient. Obedience releases the Kingdom and presence of God.

Yesterday was awesome as we met with God and one another. The Lord is speaking to us about obedience and in particular He was showing us the power of secret obedience. In Matthew 6:1-24 we saw that God rewards secret obedience with His presence - our most precious reward! The Lord is challenging us to live a life of secret obedience in which we live for the Father's pleasure and not for the approval of man. The test of true faith and humility is the life of secret obedience. When we choose to live our lives to please the Father for the benefit of others and the glory of God, we will see the Kingdom of God revealed both in our lives and in the lives of those around us. Secret obedience is choosing to live a holy life and serving others even when no one is watching! Motivation is everything - if we live for man we will receive man's reward; if we live for Abba Father, we will receive God's reward!

Praise God that He has poured out His grace to enable us to release His presence, power and love for the benefit of others and for His glory alone! Hallelujah!

The Lord is blessing us richly with His presence and revelation. The children had an awesome time yesterday during children's ministry. They are learning to be true worshippers as Kingdom Kids! We praise God for anointed workers who release the children into the Lord's presence through their ministry!

God is challenging the whole church to make every effort to live lives as the habitation of God and not just to wait for the next visitation of God. The Lord is speaking to every age group about holiness and obedience and we praise God for where He is taking KLF.

These are truly exciting times and the Lord's heart is to revive His Church so that there will be an awakening in the world! It is time for the Church to rise up and release the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven through obedience and holiness. Glory to God!
