Last Sunday evening we gathered in Ballynahinch Methodist Church for our Praise, Prayer & Proclamation service organised by The No .50 Group in co-operation with the Methodist Church.
This was my first ever Praise, Prayer and Proclamation service, so a group of about 50 people from different denominations gathered to praise, pray and proclaim the goodness and love of God. There were symbolic prophetic acts and stories that were shared as well as encouraging words given.
Throughout the service, I kept asking what is the Lord saying to us? Then it was Jill turn to speak, Jill is part of our leadership team in 1st Ballynahinch, she has a beautiful and powerful God-given gift of listening to the Lord. So during the worship and the prayers she drew several pictures and here they are:
I wonder what you see in these pictures?
So, what is God saying to us? I believe that the message is here and it is for this season. “To step up and tell it out the treasures that are within us to step out in faith, that is totally rooted in the Lion of Judah, He will guide us and as he does we will enter into a new season where our hearts are going to be melted by His Presence.”
Recently, I was reading this from the Gospel of John
“So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing. And greater works than these will he show him, so that you may marvel. For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom he will.” (John 5:19–21 ESV)
What I see here is a picture of teamwork, Father and Son working together to give life to all. That life is the life of Jesus in us. What Jesus does is what He sees His Father doing and we are called to do the same. The Father is always working!
