Pray for God's purpose in the Church
Hey everyone, Pastor Laurie here just reminding
everyone that today is the national day of prayer.
Let's pray for those in authority, governments to be
saved, and for Oasis and the whole body of Christ, and our families. Let's pray the Word over all our situations!
Eph 1:17 - 19 - that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of Glory, May give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that
you may know what is the hope of His calling, (which is Christ in you, the hope of Glory) what are the riches of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who Believe, according to the working
of His mighty power!
Eph 3:10 - to the intent that now the manifold wisdom
of God might be made known by the Church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places.
We need everyone as the Church to come together with
this vision in mind. That as we come and bring our supply of The Spirit of God, we would be fitted together and grow into a holy temple in The Lord. Eph 2:21 - 22. In whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
So God wants us to know that, the riches of His inheritance are
connected with us, His saints ,coming together as the household of God for a number of purposes.
1. He fits us together so we can grow up into a
holy temple corporately.
2. So God himself will have a dwelling place on
earth in the Spirit! Why?
3. So that His wisdom would be made known by the
church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places!
Why is this important? Because this is where all
our breakthroughs come!
We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, powers, rulers, etc. When there are wars and rumors of wars in nations, and even in our families, it will not be worked out by our flesh or soul. Let's take our place in the heavenlies, (in the Spirit at the throne of grace), before our Fathers face, and learn of Him.
In these last days, let's not get lax in our coming
together, but stir up the vision and purpose of why its so important, and how each of us need each other, so God can fit us together for His purposes. None of us are perfect, and we in the natural can grate on each other just like in families, but it's time to go higher, for His purposes. Time to come into the stature of the fullness of Christ. Time for the Church Triumphant, full of Glory to arise!
