In as much as I have seen the arm of the Lord laid bare before my very eyes every step of the way in my recent travel, nothing beats the plans and purposes that He originally ordained, the very reason why I headed towards Australia.
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)
Yes, I have received so much “now” words from the Hillsong Conference, but these words were not meant to stay stagnant within me for His Word is living and active. Out of the abundance of our hearts, our mouths get to be speaker phones that those around us will be watered by the living water that were deposited in the reservoir of our hearts.
When we get touched and be filled with His presence, there is no other way but to burst out like a fountain, diffusing the fragrance of Who He is, us becoming stewards of joy, peace and hope to those who are in need.
In my own personal experience, there were people whom the Lord has touched to take me to places where I never even imagined existed. He exceeded my expectations. Truly, we have entered into this glorious season when people will fear God because of His goodness. His surprises take us to a different level of knowing His love, mercy and grace that fills and overflows our hearts with thanksgiving, praise and worship.
A very good friend of mine took me to the Blue Mountains with such a breathtaking view that cameras can never capture the true beauty of our Heavenly Father’s artwork Who created these for our own pleasure.
And the awesome view of the South Head …
Another couple was touched by the Lord’s prompting took me to the Bald Hill Lookout and Sea Cliff Bridge.
Auckland, New Zealand had its share of beauty that captured my heart. The rainbow that welcomed me powerfully reminded me that He is with me wherever I go.
New Zealand = Aoteroa = The land of the long white clouds.
There were too many more scenery that were made available for me to see. My eyes were satisfied and my heart was full BUT with God, He never stops in getting us blessed. He takes us farther and further into being BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING!
Before this travel was birthed, He put specific people in my heart to visit and they were the ones who took their time to take me around. They made most of my visit as glorious as it could be. My heart was in full appreciation in celebration of those times well spent with them. I was in awesome wonder how the Lord orders our steps that are never less than His best.
But for me, the very best thing that overwhelmed my heart was at the end of the journey in each place where I get to speak forth words of life to each of them. It was when the uncontainable joy in my heart was released through words in prayer that I know has penetrated deep within their hearts that will last forever.
The satisfaction of what we see with our eyes cannot be compared to the fulfillment in our hearts as we get privileged and honored to be stewards of His presence. Truly heaven and earth will pass away, but HIS WORDS will never pass away. (Matthew 24:35)
The much fruit of speaking blessings to those around us can never go unnoticed. Jesus said, “the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” (John 6:63) And as you and I carry His words that quicken the hearts of those who hear, their spirits are touched and lives are transformed.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You, for choosing me to be a vessel so honored to speak forth Your words to those whom You love. Jesus, thank You, that You are the Word made flesh, that as we declare and decree Your Word, Your very presence is released. Thank You, Holy Spirit, for always leading me to be at the right place at the right time, doing the right thing with the right heart, speaking the right words to the right hearers, that You may be made known to all the corners of the earth and get all the glory, honor and praise, in Jesus mighty Name. Amen!
