I wanna encourage you today to do this: invest in your relationship with God. It is the best investment you could ever make. The Father loves you, Jesus is your co-heir with Christ, you’re seated in heavenly places with Him, and you can live from heaven to earth. From that perspective by the Holy Spirit, He will give you wisdom and revelation and strategy on how to do life, how to live naturally supernatural. We’ve been given access to heaven now.
You know, Jesus tells us to pray “on earth as it is in heaven.” And I just remember standing in worship one day and I was singing the song, Show Me Your Glory. And I’m crying out to God like this, and I’m just really into it. And you know, you get louder when you mean it more. And I’ve got my head up and I’m belting this Show Me Your Glory. And I wanted to see revival happen on this college campus. And the Holy Spirit interrupted my passionate worship, and He said, “Hey, I’m right here.” He’s like, you know, He’s speaking to me. He’s like, “I’m right in front of you.” He said, “I’m waiting on you.” And I was like, “What?” He’s already made a way. He lives inside of us. The Holy Spirit lives inside of us. He was waiting for me to pray for people. He was waiting for me to lay hands on the sick. He was waiting for me to preach the gospel.
You know, it talks about in Romans, how can people know unless they hear? Unless somebody preaches? I don’t have to be a pastor at a church or with a microphone in my hand to share the gospel with people. You know, the Great Commission in Matthew 28 says, “Go and make disciples,” but I can’t do that on my own. I have to invest in my relationship with Him, and not just for the sake of the outcome in fulfilling the Great Commission. But Jesus died. The Father sent Jesus to die so that you and I could be in relationship with Him. He loves us. He wants to hang out with us. You know, and James, it says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” There’s no caveat so that you can do His work. That’s just a fruit of a healthy relationship with Him.
And so I wanna pray for you right now, that if you need to carve out time, if you need to find space in your schedule, if you’ve tried to spend time with God and it’s been hard, I just wanna pray for you right now. Holy Spirit, would you encounter with your love, with your revelation. I just release over you ears to hear. That Holy Spirit, you would speak clearly, and that you would receive an increased awareness of His voice in your life as you take time to ask, and you take time to listen, and you take time to let Him know what’s on your heart. Because you know, He knows everything, but it’s another thing for you to come to Him and share what’s on your heart. That’s what a Father wants. Father doesn’t wanna just find out what His kid’s doing. He wants the kid to come to Him and share. And so I just release that over you in Jesus name. Amen.
