Last night, Joshua Wittig and I led a young lady to the Lord in my office after church. It was a very special moment for her, and for us. Tears were falling as God reached into the deepest places of Alex’s heart. All together, 9 more people have given their lives to Christ outside of our church services this week!
I’ve lived my whole life to witness an awakening like this one. Even though it is still in its infantcy, it’s building up tremendous momentum… we even had to schedule another baptism service for this Sunday-to accommodate the baptism requests. Jesus Christ is fast becoming the HOT TOPIC of Augusta County, VA!
Do you have any idea how complicated ministry can become when you are facilitating a wildfire like this?
Luke 4:36-37 All the people were amazed and said to each other, “What is this teaching? With authority and power he [Jesus] gives orders to evil spirits and they come out!” And the news about him spread [like wildfire] throughout the surrounding area.
Acts 2:46-47 They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity—all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.
Every day, I pray for God’s great wisdom. I want to mobilize our ministry around the places where God is already moving: to provide strong leadership, without suffocating the passion and creativity of these new believers. If it’s going to last, it is going to need a FATHER’S covering. When trials come and emotions drop, encouragement is needed. God establishes leadership structures for the following purposes:
- To accelerate destiny.
- To warn of undetected dangers.
- To expand opportunity, through influence.
- To identify progress and applaud successes.
- To provide loving care in challenging moments.
- To offer protection from evil spiritual opposition.
- To provide necessary mechanisms of accountability.
- To add substance to feeling, through biblical instruction.
- To give godly wisdom from years of time-tested experience.
- To model character, faith, balance, humility, endurance, and passion.
Let me say this again…
I want our mobilize our ministry around the places where God is already moving: to provide strong leadership, without suffocating the passion and creativity of these new believers.
I have a feeling, that this coming Sunday is going to be the beginning of something bigger! It’s just like this Saturday night is Christmas Eve AGAIN for Destiny Family Center. I pray this very same blessing for your home church too. Please keep praying for us, that God will keep on gracing us for this blessing!
I just finished praying for you (with tremendous passion), hoping you really feel the difference. I wish you a most triumphant Thursday wherever you are in the earth today.
Please leave your comments here on the blog site so that we will always have a record of your beautiful thoughts.
With much love…
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!
