God’s Strength

One of my most significant aims in life has been to seek God, by seeking His presence in my world.

It’s not about the fragrance of the Lord, goosebumps upon goosebumps, or a wave coming continuously, pulsing over your body etc. – although I love those things and everything else – I’m not talking about any manifestation of heaven here on earth. But it’s what God helps me to achieve throughout life when I am continuously focused on His will, not my own.

I want to live with God by my side. I want to turn to Him at every opportunity, and allow His wisdom to be reflected in my life, but also, that I can look back and see my ”God journey, ” because I know that where I am in life, is simply a reflection of obedience from my part, but also God’s goodness and grace for me.

Friends, we live in a time where we can ask Mr. Google anything, Alexa can help our kids with their homework, or we can go on YouTube for the latest TedTalk, or message from one of the Mega Churches around the world, but are we continually seeking God, Himself?

The Scripture in 1 Chronicles 16:11 puts simply what God’s desire is for all of us

We can gloss over the words used in Scripture, but nothing is by accident. God uses the words ”search” and ”seek” – although we can use them in a similar context, they are very different.

To seek, is to find something you are trying to look for, yet know it exists.

To search, is to know where you have to go to find it, but there is no implication of where it is.

We may go through seasons where we seek God and find Him, and know that His strength is what ultimately got us through. We may also go through times in our lives, where we search, and it feels like we are all alone…but the commonality here is – are we are trying?

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.
