This morning I woke up with a fresh stirring in my heart. I sense that the next couple of months are very significant in what the Lord is doing in Australia and in the nations. We are standing on the brink of a great outpouring of glory. The Lord reminded me of the decades (around 22 in our nation) of faithful intercession that have been offered up, the millions who have stood (and those who still stand) faithfully before the Lord lifting up their cry to heaven. (We need to honour and appreciate the hidden work of intercessors).
This is the harp and the bowl spoken of in Revelations 5 vs 8 - worship and intercession together, hand in hand. In brief, this is worship through singing and declaration of God's Holy Word combined with prayer and intercession as the Holy Spirit leads.
I saw a picture of a large ornate bowl filled with precious fragrant offerings, like liquid gold - being tipped and poured out over the earth - and it's about to happen!! God is about to bring great sweeping change across the nations as He rises in response to the cries from His people.
Now is the time to pray fervently for the nations! His desire is that none will miss out on all the fullness of His promises, plans and purposes on the earth. The momentum has increased; we shall stand and see the goodness of the Lord in the land! 'How great is the love the Father has lavished upon us, that we are called children of God'. (1 John 3:1)
So if you're feeling despondent and discouraged, take heart - the Lord is with you! He will strengthen you, uphold you and deliver you!! His great love compels Him to do so.
May you be blessed in your pursuit of Him, may you find rest in Him and great comfort in the revelation of His immense love for you. :D
