Building Foundations

Glory to God!

The Lord is building foundations and establishing KLF. God spoke to us at the beginning of the year about faith working through love as we grow in our love for God's presence (reaching up), God's people (reaching in) and God's salvation purposes (reaching out). Consequently we are seeing how God is stirring us particularly in the area of worship and discipleship, the fruit of which will influence those around us wherever we are. We are seeing the prophetic word given to us through Richard Maybery unfold: the Lord will establish the tabernacle of David in KLF as He brings and raises psalmists, worshipers and musicians in Kingdom Life. We are already singing many of our own songs and seeing how God is taking us deeper and deeper into His presence as we worship Him. It is wonderful! We are also seeing how God is using our KLF discipleship course to establish our people in the Truth and how He is building strong foundations in people's lives as they learn to live by the Spirit and the Truth. These are exciting times!

In the past three weeks the Lord has been speaking to us about bringing us into a spacious place, a place where we are delivered from the enemy and from our self-centredness as we humble ourselves before God and one another. It is a place where we are unhindered to experience the presence and the possibilities of God. You can listen to the messages here:

Attitude of gratitude - Richard Morschel

On Sunday the Lord spoke to us about worship and He showed us that there are two very important aspects to worship.The first is that worship is our response to the revelation of God. The second is that worship is also our response to the grace of God. The Lord showed us that the worshipers He seeks are those who have a heart of gratitude who overflow with thankfulness for who He is and for what He has done and does for us. As believers respond to God and to His mercy and grace, they worship and honour God with their lives (Romans 12:1,2). The Lord showed us how thankfulness delivers us from anxiety, discontentment, over-familiarity and the enemy (Philippians 4:4-13; 2 Chronicles 20:21,22) and how thankfulness honours God and is a worshipful response to the goodness of God (Hebrews 12:28,29). As believers and true worshipers, we are called to be thankful and to declare the excellencies of God (1 Peter 2:9,10).
