The River

There is so much depth within the Prophetic Books. I love to see the prophet’s journey unfold to serve God.

We have all been given a will to choose. To submit. To follow.

Ezekiel lived what he preached, and faithfully obeyed God – even to show no sorrow when his wife died.

Could we actually do the same, if asked by God?

Ezekiel was fearless in preaching the word of God to the exiles. He was fearless in bringing truth of God’s love and power to them evangelistically but right at the end of the book in chapter 47, Ezekiel gives us this picture of “The River From The Temple.”

How amazing is it to think that fruit trees of all kinds (us) will be on either side of the river (God) and we will produce continuous fruit (from being a disciple of Christ – a Christian.)

We won’t get tired or fall away because God sustains is, in health and strength, wherever the river goes.

God brings life…God is life and that to me, is a beautiful picture that Ezekiel brings to us.

We need to realise that God won’t leave us in our pursuit to fulfil what He has created us to do.

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
