There’s been a restlessness deep within me these last few months.
Not a discontent.
Not a hopelessness.
Not a disappointment.
Not totally comfortable, but totally ok.
This type of restlessness pushes and presses me into a new surge of faith, a deep stirring for the next “whatever” with God.*
It’s been a sense of a SHIFT coming.
Shift: to move from one place, position, direction, etc., to another
Do you wonder what God is up to? I do.
Dwight and I recently heard Bill and Beni Johnson speak in Charlotte. Beni spoke of a coming shift. Another “awakening” by God on the earth. Last weekend, we heard Bob Jones speak of a coming “wave” of God. Revivals, renewals, waves, shifts…words that reveal outpourings of God’s love for all people. God coming to earth, again and again, answering the cries of His people, touching the world with His constant pursuit.
Where does the shift begin? In me. In you.
We continue to move out the stuff of the earth that distracts us from the treasures of heaven.
Pray for the SHIFT to begin in you, to prepare the earth for the Kingdom of Heaven which is at hand!
“From the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of Heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.” Matthew 11:9
Beni was given a bumper sticker. It’s a little edgy for me (and was for her), but I sort of like it—take the profane and make it holy:
Amen–so be it. Come, Lord!
*A John 5:19 kind of “whatever.” Doing only what we see the Father do!
