Spend More Time With God

Today I intentionally spent hours in the presence of God. I know God is immanent (everywhere), but I mean paying attention and listening for God as well as reading the bible and praying [again, praying includes listening].

After having a good conversation with a friend from Tennessee who’s more experienced in gifts like the prophetic I drove to Solana Beach to get a haircut at my favorite place, the Cove Barber Shop.

On the way I felt the Lord nudge me with “Do You Love Me?” and I can even sense that it was the version from the movie, “Dirty Dancing” by The Contours. I discovered The Blues Brothers version first and both are below.

Here’s something to consider:

Is Holy Spirit singing this to the church? Keep in mind that if God is singing the lyrics they would be sung with perfectly pure intentions, unlike how humans often sing them.

Press On, Brothers & Sisters, Press On!

Triple Surprise

At this moment I’m listening to Shawn Bolz and I highly recommend you listen to this! When I heard Deuteronomy I knew I wanted to include it in this post AND THEN, Shawn shared two more verses. Here are the verses and the Shawn Bolz video:

Deuteronomy 8:18

Ephesians 3:20

Habakkuk 2:2

You may notice that The Message translation adds a verse. My best guess is that Eugene Peterson felt those verses need to be linked. I hope you also like the way Shawn Bolz reads the verses as I do.

Press On, Sisters & Brothers, Press On.

Bold Belief

Here’s another quick post for your edification. What do you feel is an important message in this passage?

***
Mark 2:2-5 The Message (MSG)

A Paraplegic
2 1-5 After a few days, Jesus returned to Capernaum, and word got around that he was back home. A crowd gathered, jamming the entrance so no one could get in or out. He was teaching the Word. They brought a paraplegic to him, carried by four men. When they weren’t able to get in because of the crowd, they removed part of the roof and lowered the paraplegic on his stretcher. Impressed by their bold belief, Jesus said to the paraplegic, “Son, I forgive your sins.”

God bless you!

Shawn Bolz’ Special Message

Here I am about seven hours after Shawn Bolz finished preaching last night and I am somewhat tired, but I’m excited! I honestly think his message was likely the best sermon I’ve ever heard! The reason I’m so over the moon about is that I believe he shared a huge part of “how to” about our faith.

Do you ever feel like you’ve been told what you’re supposed to do but now you have to figure out how? I’m going to watch Shawn’s message again, but what I heard sounded a lot like HOW TO DO the things we’re called to do in FAITH.

Another way to look at the “how” is to say that he gave us “keys” last night. I’m PUMPED! [ I may LOOK groggy, but am definitely highly encouraged. 😉 ]

Matthew 11:30 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

In My Humble Opinion (IMHO) – Yoke just got EASIER and burden LIGHTENED!

Shawn Bolz is introduced at around 2:19:20.

God bless you!

Shawn Bolz & The Love Process

Shawn Bolz is speaking tonight at Summit Church. You better hurry if you want to see him tonight. I’m leaving in 15 minutes to volunteer. If you get there at 7 pm when it starts you will likely be standing! There’s even a chance that there won’t be enough room for everybody. You CAN watch The Fire & Glory Outpouring on ElishaRevolution.com.

Earlier I searched Youtube and found this old snippet of Shawn Bolz talking about God’s love process. Enjoy!

God bless you!

A Stunning Level Of Attention

If I could find a way to make sure that you watch this Shawn Bolz video I would do so.

My hope is that the quote from “How to Receive a Prophetic Word”, which is the title of this post, will make you curious enough to take the plunge.

Many of us are busy AND we can’t let that get in the way of being intimate with God and learning about Him and from Him.

You’ll be glad and blessed that you watched Shawn Bolz. I suggest starting 35 minutes in for a quick introduction from Patricia King if you are mostly interested in hearing from Shawn.

That’s my pitch.

God bless you!

Remember Intimacy With God

No matter how busy you get and even if you’re involved in some really great stuff, keep seeking intimacy with Holy Spirit.

Here are verses and a song to remind you:

***
Psalm 42:1-2 Living Bible (TLB)

42 As the deer pants for water, so I long for you, O God. 2 I thirst for God, the living God. Where can I find him to come and stand before him?

God bless you!
