Street Surfing With God
Moving forward takes faith. Our eyes need to be focused or set on things above. I personally feel that there has been a major breakthrough recently. God has made a way for the Church to arise! God in His mystery is waiting for us to conquer the earth. He has deposited Himself in us. As we appropriate this faith, the divine nature that He has imparted to us will grant us the ability to move mountains! The things that seem impossible suddenly become possible! As we meditate on God’s Word, He will impart into us an understanding of the impossible.
I believe each of us in the body of Christ have been given an invitation to rise up and participate with His kingdom. We get to go out on the street wherever we live and be His hands and feet. As we partner with Him, being obedient to His voice, we will see Him fulfill His promises!
I love the picture to the right that was recently taken of these Cambodian children. A street near a slum became the beach to these little ones after the rain. We should all be so childlike after God rains down on us with His presense! Going into the streets with joy as we share the good news of Jesus with all the world.
I have included the scripture below, because His Word is alive, and it will speak more than I could ever impart into you, so allow Him to impart into you faith that will move mountains. Let His identity in you rise up and conquer the giants. I am believing for a greater move of God here in Cambodia to demolish the strongholds! With love we will go through the streets declaring God’s promises!
Rom 4:13-5:2 NLT
Clearly, God’s promise to give the whole earth to Abraham and his descendants was based not on his obedience to God’s law, but on a right relationship with God that comes by faith. If God’s promise is only for those who obey the law, then faith is not necessary and the promise is pointless. For the law always brings punishment on those who try to obey it. (The only way to avoid breaking the law is to have no law to break!) So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift. And we are all certain to receive it, whether or not we live according to the law of Moses, if we have faith like Abraham’s. For Abraham is the father of all who believe. That is what the Scriptures mean when God told him, “I have made you the father of many nations.” This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing. Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping—believing that he would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how many descendants you will have!” And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead—and so was Sarah’s womb. Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. And because of Abraham’s faith, God counted him as righteous. And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God. Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
