Hello friends on worship the rock!
My wife Rita and I were leading worship for some young people who were wonderful, zealous missionaries. The Lord led us to minister the rest and assurance and love of God to these weary warriors. Jesus made Himself known in a wonderfully reassuring way and we all got very still and rested, basked in His Presence. It was a sweet time- quietly powerful.
After our time of worship, the next thing on the agenda was prayer time. Almost immediately these precious young people left the sense of rest and started shouting and begging and pleading with God. Now, I know that there is a time for "militant" intercession, but in my humble opinion this wasn't it. I felt the sadness of the Father for these that were asking Him for what He has already given. I heard Him say to them, and maybe to you:
"If you could see you as I see you, it would free you to be you- then you would know Me, for I will show You Who I Am and who you are."
How sad I would be as a Dad if I gave my daughters gifts then they proceeded to beg me for them. Or if they had done someting wrong and asked me for forgiveness, then after I gave them forgiveness, they kept crying and beggin for it. What must they think of me? Godrest and Godspeed to you today friend!
