We got the world in a pincer movement yesterday! Kieran preached very well here this morning, while almost at the same time Julian was preaching at F7 church in Goulburn, New South Wales at their evening meeting 10,000 miles away on the other side of the world!
The psalmist says
” Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.” (Psalm 139:7-10)
It is fabulous that God moves powerfully no matter where we are! Know that no matter where your day takes you, God is there, and He wants to be there right by your side, encouraging you, helping you, comforting you – if you will let him.
Have a great day whatever is in front of you, and remember, stop, pause and think on Him as you go through your day. It will be so much more sweet as a result!
After 3 fabulous days in the O2 at the Hillsong Europe conference, I’m sat in my hotel room musing on the marvellous way God uses all sorts of people to minister to us.
The preachers were great, but I was also really blessed by some of the conversations I had randomly during the conference. Alessandro, an Italian brother from Naples, brothers from France and Columbia have ministered to me and reminded me that my faith is a worldwide faith, the exuberance of the young remind me that in Christ Jesus all barriers are meaningless, those of gender, race, age, economic status – we are all one in Christ Jesus!
Hillsong Europe had thousands in attendance, and we are only a handful, yet I was reminded that Jesus’ must powerful ministry was often to the one or the few: the woman with bleeding, blind Bartimaeus, the two lepers, the Samaritan woman at the well, the blind man, Zacchaeus – let’s not neglect the one in the pursuit of the many.
As Brian Houston says, “building a church is a completely different thing to gathering a crowd”
At The Seed, we are a church, not merely a crowd 🙂
We have already booked for next year. If you want to join us as part of the Seed, contact me and we can help you join our group and be transformed during a week if the best teaching and worship I have heard for a long time!
Over the last few weeks, we have had a number of prophetic words given to us from various sources which have caused us to reassess where we are.
There are some changes we are going to make, and the first of these is that we are making a change in the time of our Sunday meetings from a Sunday evening to a Sunday morning.
