Standing Alone

We have all been created by God with an innate desire to connect with Him and to be part of something larger than ourselves. Often, this Holy yearning leads us to try and acquire that sense of belonging by fitting in with others and by seeking approval. These are substitutes and barriers to true belonging. Often, we search for acceptance and approval by friends and family rather than seeking His Face and walk according to His commands.

Having the courage to be ourselves sometimes means we have to stand totally alone “when we are in HIM and He is in us we are never alone”. To stand alone means that we do not compromise what we know to be true and right. I believe the world is on a search to find genuine friends who are willing to be brave, speak the truth, and open our hearts reflecting our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ the only Living God.

We have to remember that what binds us together is not shared fear, misery and sadness or discontent.  But it’s shared trust, respect, and love.  Jesus gives us all of these things.
The bible tells us in Romans 8:36-39:  “For your sake we are being killed all day long;we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered. No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

During the last few weeks, I have sensed a shift in the atmosphere in our church and a true move of God. This is a new season for the Holy Spirit to do what He does best. I sensed that there would be a coming together of people throughout the city where true belonging in Christ Jesus, happens.

I sense in my spirit that small groups will start meeting in coffee shops, homes and in the marketplace. When that happens, we are able to care, encourage, and pray for each other. Until we experience this, we don’t understand how much we need God’s people in our lives; to stand with us in the everyday challenges of life.

I pray that in our confusion we find Him to be our still place, in our weakness He becomes our strength, and, in our blindness, He becomes our vision.
I pray for The Reign of God to rule supremely over our Nation and the Nation of Israel. I pray blessings over our Nation, the Nation of Israel, our city and our Church in Jesus the Messiah’s Name.   Amen!
