We all want to be in the club….where things are happening.
My pastor (Kevin) has been talking about God’s plans for a spiritual awakening that is coming our way. For the past year, he has encouraged us to prepare ourselves for that season. It’s similar to God telling Noah that it’s going to rain, and then told him to build an ark. It’s our turn to be ark builders.
My friend Chris Morgan recently shared his frustration that God wasn’t talking to him about the awakening. This is a great post he wrote about wondering “why isn’t God talking to me?” I highly recommend that to you. He is a powerful, passionate follower of Jesus.
I haven’t told anybody, but I had similar feelings to Chris. God has been very clear to me about the work I am to do….but He said nothing about any spiritual awakenings. On that, He was silent.
That changed last Friday night. I’m now in the club. While praying for the services this weekend, I had a clear message from God that “This is the beginning.” There was an image of those first raindrops before a huge storm. Oddly, I immediately asked God to hold back. “The ark isn’t built yet”, I cried. “We’re not ready!”
And then, I repented. I realized that God doesn’t need me to build an ark. He can handle this all by Himself. I am simply invited to be prepared.
Are you prepared?
Thanks for listening.
