Glory to God!
As a church, we are on a journey of repentance as we seek God’s face to turn things around in our lives that are not aligned to His truth and purposes. For 180 days we are praying for 180° reversal to take place in our own lives, the lives of others, the church and our city. We are committed to celebrating every change of direction, believing that what God begins, He will bring to completion. As we have embarked on this journey, we have begun by focusing on praying for relationships – our personal relationship with God, relationships with others, relationships for our singles who desire to have a partner, relationships between the Church and the city, etc. We believe God will bring reversal as we join together with one heart and purpose to see reconciliation, restoration, renewal and influence take place in all areas of our lives. If you want to receive a daily word of encouragement during these 180 days of prayer, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to pastor Richard’s mailing list.
Two Sundays ago, Tobias shared a message entitled, “The Key of David” in which he showed us how King David lived in the knowledge of God’s mercy and grace. Looking at Psalms 55 and 51, we noted how David clung to God's mercy in the face of the attacks of those closest to him and in the awareness of his own sin. Tobias showed us how, despite King David’s mistakes, God still saw him as “a man after His own heart” (see 1 Ki 14:8)! The key of David is the revelation of the righteousness that is ours in Christ and living in the reality of God’s mercy and grace. Hallelujah!
On Sunday, after a very powerful time of worship, we spent some time declaring reversal over relationships and speaking God's will and purpose over our lives and the lives of others. God is teaching us to align with Him and to declare and to decree His truth over our lives to see reversal take place. Several people already testified to seeing a shift take place in their lives and together we are trusting God to complete what He has begun!
Richard then spoke to us about "The Father's testimony." In his message, Richard showed us that just as believing the testimony of the Father about Jesus gives life (1 John 5:9-12), so believers must replace any false testimony they are carrying with the Father's testimony about them. Jesus carried the Father's testimony about Him and did not depend on His own testimony about Himself nor the testimony of man about Him (John 5:31-37). Likewise believers must know what the Father says about them and carry His testimony about them. Consequently we looked at Ephesians 1:3-14 to see how God sees us and to allow the Father to reverse our thinking concerning the testimony we carry about ourselves. In response many came forward for prayer and for the Father to declare His testimony over their lives. Hallelujah!
