And so it was.. An afternoon of uninterrupted "gazing" into God's face.
5 hours of basking in His wonderful presence.
What I found interesting was that for the first time, we did not have an abundance of prophetic words. Usually the MYPG prayer times are filled with static, "i saw this picture", "i got this verse", et cetera. Followed by confirmations, prophetic insights, and lots of excitement. Zap zap zap!
But this was like the quiet and rest in the middle of war. God did lots of deep stuff. Hence most sharings were on a very personal level. Personal, yes.. but very significant.
We may think cleansing ourselves has nothing to do with praying for the NATION. But how can we know the destiny of our generation when we do not know the destiny of our own lives?
Do you have anything to share about your time at Heart to the Beat of Love? Feel free to comment below. =)
Have you ever heard I Run To You by Lady Antebellum? It's one of my most current favorite songs! Catchy beat and meaningful words, what's not to love? (:
I liked it so much, I memorized the lyrics! (That proves how much I play it, haha) And sing along every single time it comes on the radio or media player. I can even sing without music, on my own! Haha. Only yesterday, it hit me what the words said " I run from hate I run from prejudice I run from pessimists But I run too late I run my life Or is it running me Run from my past I run too fast Or too slow it seems
When lies become the truth That’s when I run to you".
Two questions came into mind:- 1. What was I running from? 2. Who was I running to?
What are you running from? And who are you running to?
Some of us, like the song says, run from hate. This world is a world of hate, and some people hide form the world. They'd rather disappear then be seen, and they've always wanted to be invisible. Wanted to be or happen to be, thats sort of the same dont you think? At the end of the day, you still are in invisibility. But God sees you
Some of us run from prejudice. We run from bitter talk, we run from taking sides, we run from basically everything that has to do with us making a decision. We hate making decisions! We'd just like to stay neutral. Be in our bubbles that are not of this world, bubbles we create ourselves, to protect ourselves. But God says choose which side your on
We also run from pessimist. People who always see the bad in things. Sometimes I always see the bad in things. And I would say that an everyday pessimist has scales from his eyes. Why are we running from pessimist, people who "live" in darkness when we are supposed to be light? In a dark room, with just a little light, the room lights up. We run from pessimist cause we're afraid to be like them, to be influenced by them. But God says it's not the healthy who need to doctor, but the sick. People need to see Jesus through you. He says you are an influence, you make the difference and you are that light.
" I run my life, or is it running me? " God says he who finds his life loses it, but he who loses his life finds it.
Most of us are this one right here, we are runners from our past. We run because we;ve been broken before and brokenness is the hurt of a person's heart and soul that the person himself cannot heal, by himself. We run from our thinking of not being good enough, we run from awfull memories, we run from stroms in life -All this that we run from, we call it the past. All to be forgotten and never surfaced up ever again. But God says He is close to the brokenhearted and we were made to be conquerers.
It must be tiring to run from everything that life brings us and we're afraid of. And it must be tiring to hear what the world or people around us think we should do, what defines us and what we are. It tells us of what we are as well. The world makes us compromise to It's standards and tells us lies, that eventually we believe at truths.
We've lost ourselves, time to be found. We've been chipped/scratched/scared/wounded, time to be whole. Time to be who and everything God has called us to be.
Let's hear what God has to say about us, every word is truth and it is soaked with a heavy dose of everlasting love. Let God speak, and I will listen.
We see a big storm brewing in the merry month of May. It's exciting to see how God is planning so much for His people and even trying to guess what is install gives us chills down our spines and plasters a big smile across our faces (: Haha.
This May, KL/PJ LYPG will be organizing an event -Heart To The Beat Of Love. We feel so strongly that this it is called entirely by God, and to Him be all glory. This 15th, there's be 5hours of prayer and worship. To build a "bridge" and for the love of hearing the sound of hearts returning to Him. We got the verse Isaiah 2:3. `Many peoples will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Where, what time, and when?! 15th May 2010 11am - 4.30pm People's Park Baptist Church
Come and see what God is doing in our city. With Love, The LYPG
The merry month of May. It's going to be a merry one alright (;
There's so much going on this month. It leaves me amazed and in awe of God and how much He is doing in our nation. And it also leaves a big smile right across my face. Haha, are you guys excited?
This month's going to be a month full of prayer. Just a tini-tiny reminded, we're starting of with 10 Days of Prayer by MNPN, Heart to the best of Love by LYPG, Run Nat by The Run Nat Team, Global Day Of Pray by MNPN & Team
In all of this, let's remember 2 Chronicles 7:14 that says "If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
Yes & Amen
Time to gear up, keep the fire burning and keep our eyes on the Kingdom of God. He knows what He is doing (:
A new month, time for firsts! Or firsts after firsts! -If we'd never met you, or have not in the loongest time, join us tomorrow for LYPG at 10am in People's Park Baptist Church.
It's the merry month of May, but the more, definitely the merrier! Hope to see you soon (:
We had an awfully good one. Met at 10am as usual but this time, we started with writing personal letters to God! About what we were going through and what we hope would be for 2010 for us, personally. Then we had a time of worship and after that, broke up into pairs to pray and encourage one another.
We ended the meeting half an hour late because we felt the urgency of praying for our political situation and our politicians. We believe in Matthew 22:14 which says `Many are called, but few are chosen. All our politicians are called my God to be in places of position, for a certain time, season and purpose. But it's our responsibility to pray for our nation and to stand in the gap for Malaysia (:
LYPG is organizing an event on 3 weeks from now. And we are very very excited for it! It is called *drum roll please*... (: It will be a whole afternoon of prayer for our nation. Those of you who think you're not good talkers, it will be a whole afternoon of worship as well! And if if if, you can't sing -everyone knows how to enjoy right?
It's going to be an afternoon of enjoying God (: Him, as He is. Great, Almighty and Real.
We feel so strongly that this is an event called out for by God, for us to come and meet Him/seek His face for this nation.
Details! May 15th 2010 11am - 4pm
