From The Heart Of God, To The Feet Of The Hurting – Finding Your Purpose, And Living With Passion
Introduction: First and foremost we must find God to find ourselves. There, in His presence, we find our purpose and destiny, as well as an unquenchable passion to fulfill that destiny, and an irresistible desire to lead others to do the same—from there the world can’t help but be changed, it doesn’t stand a chance against the passion and presence of the living God!
Knowing God – not just about him
“To know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”Ephesians 3:19
A heart knowing that passes a head knowledge
I believe this is key for us to understand we are talking about more than mere religion we are talking about a relationship. Too long we have settled for knowing about Jesus while he is calling us to intimately know him. In this verse, the word, “know” is the same as used in Genesis 4:1 “Adam knew Eve and she conceived” Romans 7:4 talks of us being married to Jesus and bringing forth fruit (of the spirit).
A burning desire to know him
We are no longer satisfied with hearing about Him, we have a burning desire to know Him intimately. God is giving us a heart, a desire, a passion to know him 24/7 — the Holy Spirit spoke this to me one day, leading me to this verse:
I will give them a heart to know me, that I am YHVH. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.Jeremiah 24:7
To have a passion to seek Him with our whole heart.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.Jer 29:13
This generation has seen it all, done it all, and we are numb, we have become a passionless generation. We’ve lost hope, we’ve lost our fire, our desire; but God has a way of turning what seems bad around, and He is taking us who have become passionless and calling us into His presence, stirring a hunger in us that only His presence can quench, a deep longing for not just a part of Him, but all. Instead of being numbed, we are realising, as king David did, that everything else this world has to offer leaves you empty, whether it is money, sex, power, or fame, nothing compares to knowing God.
This is the generation of them that seek him, of them that seek the face of the God of Jacob.Psalms 24:6
I proclaim this generation, the generation that will seek His face.
Lift up your heads, O you watchmen, and raise up the eternal gates, and the King of Glory shall enter.Psalms 24:7
As we get in His presence, His glory is going to flow to us and through us! As Elijah said to Ahab, “Get up, eat and drink, for I can hear the sound of the abundance of rain.” He spoke this to the king even though there was no rain in sight, in fact it hadn’t rained in three years, but he had faith and knew God would do what He said He would do, and would answer his prayer. Like Elijah, I hear the sound of the abundance of rain. No matter what it looks like now, I know God is on the move, and he is stirring us and working in us. Only believe and you will see the Glory of God! We don’t go by what it looks like in the natural, but what we know in the spirit.
I feel a calling to proclaim, to herald to anyone who will hear, “Spend time in God’s presence, know Him, and you will know His glory.”
Revolution is calling, it is the voice of the Holy Spirit within you saying,
“Arise my beloved, my beautiful one, and come to me. Look, for the winter is past. The rain is over and gone, and the flowers appear on earth. The time of singing has come, and the songs of the mourning-doves are heard in our land. The fig tree brings forth its early fruit, and the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise my beloved, my beautiful one, and come!”Song of Solomon 2:10-13
Hope is here, yours and the world’s. Everything you need, want, and long for is waiting in His presence. Freedom is here in His presence; no longer must you be bound to the demons that haunt you, the addictions that taunt you. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom (2 cor 3:17). In His presence there is joy.
“You have shown me the path of life, in your presence is the fullness of joy, at your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.”Psalms 16:11
With us, no longer will the word “Christian” be associated with being dull, lifeless, and boring. We are coming forth from His presence, glowing like Moses from the mountain top, bringing God’s glory to a dry and weary land. He is streaming to us and through us. We are mirrors reflecting His glory.
But we all, with open face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.2 Corinthians 3:18
We are like mirrors who have had the veils removed from them, so we can brightly reflect the glory of the Lord.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.2 Corinthians 4:7
and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.Romans 5:5
We are like earthen vessels flooded with his presence, gushing with His love. May the love of God be shed abroad, gushing out, overflowing from our hearts by the Holy Ghost, to flood a dry and weary land with the rain of His presence, to create Floodland of the spirit that renews as it renewed in the time of Noah—and it starts with us!
“For God is the One working in you, to both desire and work according to what is good and pleasing to Him.”Phillipians 2:13
When we “Know” Him with our heart, and not just our head, then the world can really know Him too. We can do more than just tell them about Him, we can introduce them, spark that relationship in which they can come to truly know Him as well. God is longing to flood the earth with His glory. We are the gates through which he will flood His glory, we only have to lift up our heads, rise up, have faith and do as he commands.
A people filled with a passion for His presence
Yes, a people filled with His power, His Glory, His presence, showing the world YHVH is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He still loves, He still feeds the hungry and gives drink to the thirsty, He still clothes and gives shelter to the stranger, He still comforts the prisoner, heals the sick, and casts out demons (Matthew 25:31-46). People may wonder, “How does He still do all those?” The answer is, as 1 Corinthians 12, Romans 12, and Ephesians 4-5, tells us: we are His body here on earth, we are His hands and His feet, through us His glory flows and devils tremble.
Devils no longer have us on the run, we’ve got them on the run, they are our food; no longer are we theirs. The greater One lives in us and through us. We realise that we are strong in the Lord YHVH, and in the power of His might (eph 6:10 ). We realise His great love for us (eph 2:7 ) and that we are complete in Him (eph 3:19) filled with all the fullness of God (Col 2:10), and that in His presence we are no longer in want (psalms 23) we are completely at peace. Then demons can no longer rule over us, no longer control us through fears or worldly desires. We awaken to righteousness, realising we are righteous because of Jesus and his precious blood. We realise how much Jesus loves us, and we fall in love with Him, and it is that love that compels us, that drives us (2 Corinthians 5:14).
Mother Theresa said ,”God so loved the world He sent His son. Now He loves the world so much he sends us to be His love, His compassion, His presence.”
How awesome is that?
Galatians 2:20 tells us that we were crucified with Christ, it is no longer us that lives, but Christ that lives in us. That the life we now live, we live by faith (trusting God and what he says). The Gospel, the good news, is that you can be righteous because of Jesus, free because of Jesus, and you will see the glory of God (John 11:40). He has freed you from the powers of darkness, to live a life of love, a life of destiny, a life of purpose. No longer pushed around by the lure of addictions and the chains of evil, but free to choose, free to love, free to live.
This is the generation that will seek His face, seek his presence, will know Him, and make him known.
This One Thing
We’ve been a passionless, King Solomon generation that says, “Vanity, vanity, all is vanity!” But God is calling us, stirring us too be a King David generation that says, “All is vanity, but you!” I can’t live without you.
David was a man that had it all, power, women, money, and still nothing satisfied him but the presence of God. David even cried out after sinning with Bathsheba, begging God not to cast him from His presence, or take his Holy Spirit from him. (Psalm 51:11) That was the one thing he was unwilling to be with out, the one thing that satisfied him.
This one thing I desire, that I may dwell in your presence all the days of my life. To gaze upon your beauty, and seek answers in your temple.Psalm 27:4
And God is telling us, as He did David in Psalm 27:8, “Seek my face, inquire, and require my presence as your vital need.” and Our hearts are responding, “Your face, your presence, O Lord, I seek, inquiring for and relying on the authority of your word.”
God is calling us, this generation, you, a peculiar people after God’s own heart, as the tribes of Israel and David were. His desires become our desires, His passions become our passions. We long to see His power and Glory in this dry and weary land, to see His power, not only in the sanctuary of a church, but everywhere we go (Psalm 63:1-3). We are no longer satisfied with a “Sunday” experience, we are a Jeremiah 24:7, we are generation 24/7!
We are acknowledging God, and He is directing and empowering our destiny now!
Part 2. Destiny
In His presence you find your purpose.
1 Samuel chapter 2, tells us of how even though the sons of Eli the high priest, knew about God, they were wicked and didn’t know Him. There is a big difference, You can be religious and know all about God, but be a son of belial, of the devil. You can, as Jesus said of the Pharisees and Sadducees, “Praise Him with your lips, but your heart be far from Him.” But God is looking for hearts that beat with His. Believe me, if you spend time at his feet, gazing into His heart, you will find yourself at the feet of the hurting, with His power, glory, and love flowing out of you—Yes, that is true destiny, nothing less will suffice!
“And now I am going to Jerusalem, drawn there irresistibly by the Holy Spirit, not knowing what awaits me, except that the Holy Spirit has told me in city after city that jail and suffering lie ahead. But my life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus-the work of telling others the Good News about God’s wonderful kindness and love.”Act 20:22-24
Destiny isn’t always the easy thing, but if you have a heart after God’s, and you are filled with His Holy Spirit, you will long for destiny, and not be satisfied with anything else.
“And I will raise me up a faithful priest that shall do according to that which is in my heart and in my mind.”1 Samuel 2:35
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.”Proverbs 3:5-6
He will guide you in this destiny he planned for you before the foundations of the earth.
“Trust in YHVH with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will direct your paths.”Proverbs 3:5-6
Destiny is found in His presence. If we trust Him, and follow His ways, we will be world changers.
“I will instruct you, and teach you in the way which you shall go: I will guide you with my presence.”Psalms 32:8
In the New Living Translation, it paraphrases the above verse as:
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”Psalm 32:8
The next verse shows us clearly what kind of relationship God is after:
Don’t be like a stubborn horse or mule, who will not follow and come near unless forced by a bit and bridle.Psalms 32:9
He doesn’t want people to be forced to follow Him; He wants us to freely come near to Him, to want a relationship with Him, to want Him to guide us on this path called destiny.
The dictionary defines Destiny as:
Destiny: Something to which a person or thing is destined. Destine: to decree beforehand; predetermine; to designate, assign or dedicate in advance; to direct; devise or set apart for a specific purpose.
Destiny implies something Foreordained often suggesting a great or noble course or end. On the other hand fate implies an inevitable and usually adverse outcome.
Fate: an inevitable, often adverse outcome, condition, or event such as a disaster, or death.
God made each one of us unique, created for a specific purpose, with a destiny, a plan we were set apart for before we were even born, foreordained for by God.
Before I formed you in the belly, I knew you, and before you came forth from the womb, I sanctified you, set you apart for a purpose, and I ordained you prophet to the nations.Jeremiah 1:5
Thus says the Lord who formed me from the womb to be His servant.Isaiah 49:5
Who hath saved us, and called us with a Holy calling given us in Christ before the world began.2 Timothy 1:9
Fall to Fate, or Stand for Destiny
These definitions show that there are two paths for our lives: on the one hand, we could go along with the lies the world tells us about ourselves, never realise who we were created to be, never realise the greatness within us, that we were to be filled with the power and glory of God. Yes, we could believe what the Liar says, the one who blinds minds and veils destinies, and we could fall to fate; or we can look to the right hand, realise today that we were created for more, and see the plan our loving Father, YHVH, has for us. To see that He destined us, before worlds began, for a purpose, for your God given destiny—a great and noble cause for which you were set apart. We were not meant to be slaves to the world and the sorrows it brings, we are called to be world changers, to reshape this world. So don’t let the world make you think that you are not good enough, that you have to conform to the image the world expects of you. Don’t let the world change you, don’t let it be said that you fell to fate. Be set apart, be the peculiar person you are called to be, and you will be a world changer. We have a choice: we can fall to fate, or stand for destiny. If you will believe by faith (fidelity, faithfulness) in God’s plan for your life, that He planned for you before you were born, and that he sent His son to free you from the chains of darkness, from the kingdom of despair, so you could have hope and a future; if through Him, in His strength, you see past the lies of the Evil One, and awaken to your destiny, yes, you can be a world changer—accept nothing less!
You do not have to fear your fate, if you have faith in YHVH and in His destiny for you.
The Enemy wants you to have faith in his lies, that you are nothing and worthless, that you are powerless, and that God doesn’t love you. The Liar wants you to believe the worst, and that it is inevitable, that there is nothing you can do but accept fate. Don’t fear him and his lies, don’t fall to fate. Have Faith in what God says, and live your destiny!
“Don’t be intimidated in any way by those who oppose you; for your fearlessness will be a clear sign to them of their downfall, and a sign of your own salvation at the hands of God.”Philippians 1:28
They only have power if you believe their lies, only if you have faith in what they say, only if you fear them and the world. In the film “Labyrinth”, a 15 year old girl, named Sarah, is being tormented and tested by the Goblin King, Jareth. In the end, like the devils of this world, he says, “Beware, I have been generous up until now, but I can be cruel.” Sarah asks, “Generous? What have you done that’s generous?” And he replies, “Everything! Everything that you wanted I have done…Look what I’m offering you, your dreams. I ask for so little: Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave.” At that moment she comes to a realisation, she sees through his lies, and tells him, “You have no power over me!” At that, he makes a face like as if his ruse has been found out, and he and his world quickly fades away. He tried to get her to believe that he had power over her life, but when she awoke to the fact that he didn’t, his control over her instantly vanished. When we turn our hearts to Christ, the veil of illusion is lifted, and you realise who you truly are and the power you have within you; then the goblins’ reign is over, for they have no power over you, only over their own lies; and when you realise that, and like Sarah did to the Goblin King, you declare that they have no power over you—their control over you quickly fades away!
The Bible tells us to guard our hearts, believe what God says, and not the lies of the enemy; to speak words of faith and not fear. The world may cast doubts on your ability to succeed, telling you that you will fail; but the Bible says we are to walk by what God says, trust in His ability to succeed, and not look at things through the eyes of man, but to look through heaven’s eyes.
The demons of this world prowl around like howling wolves seeking to devour the lambs of God, but our Good Shepherd is the Lion of Judah, and he, who is joined with you, is greater.
For those God foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.Romans 8:29-30
We were predestined, set apart by God for a purpose. He knew us before we were born, just as he did Jeremiah in Jeremiah chapter 1. He predestined us, he has a destiny planned for us, that he has called us to, and He imbues us with His glory and power to fulfill it.
“I know the plan that I have for you, they are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”Jeremiah 29:11
In Ephesians 1:18-20, Paul prays that our hearts be enlightened with the sight of heaven’s eyes, so that we may see our destiny. That is my prayer for us today as well.
We have a destiny, a calling, God calls us to be saints. You might think, “But I have done this, and I have done that—I could never be a saint.” But what you did in your past doesn’t matter; what matters is what you do going forward. When you accept YHVH as your god, and that He sent Yeshua HaMeshiach as your savior, and you believe by faith (fidelity, faithfully following what He says), and walk in His path, you will have the power to resist sin, and lead a set apart, kodesh, saintly life. The power of the holy Spirit will fill you, and Jesus will overflow out from you as rivers of living water bringing life to all of those around you .Isaiah 60:1-4 says people will be drawn to you because you will radiate God’s glory like a light shining in the darkness, you will shine with hope, destiny, and purpose—things which so many are desperately searching for. The world can be a violent sea, tossing and turning, desperate for someone who can calm the storm; the world can be a valley of dry bones, longing for their Ezekiel to come and speak hope to them.—they long for hope, purpose, and passion. Filled with the Living Waters, you shall be like rain bringing life to a dry, weary land—this is what the world longs for. Once you awaken to see that God has destined you for more, freed you to bring freedom: you will become a world changer! Destiny is calling, God is calling you to His banquet, to fill up, and to go forth and invite others.
The World is a dry, barren land, whirling in the chaos of sandstorms, and the people of it are suffering, slowly being turned into a pile of dry dead bones. But we, who have died in Christ, are risen in Christ, reborn in Him, as a great army of God: an army full of hope, destiny, and purpose. When the world looks at us, they may see trash, but we God’s workmanship, created to do His good works; and this world is drugged out, feeling like as if there is no hope, their spirits are crying out to God, crying for his Salvation (Yeshua), crying for him to bring them out of slavery and into freedom. We can show them that He hears their cry, and He has a plan and a purpose for them. This dry land is praying for rain, let’s release the living water and turn it into a floodland.
For we are His workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works which God declared from the beginning so that we should walk in them.Ephesians 2:10
Power For Destiny
God has given you a destiny, a purpose, he has set apart you for something, and He gives you His power and ability to fulfill it.
For God said, “Let light shine out from darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on all sides, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive, are always consigned to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.2 Corinthians 4:6-12
For God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey Him and the power to do what pleases Him.Philippians 2:13
“You shall receive the ability to perform deeds when the spirit of holiness comes upon you, and you shall witness of me in Jerusalem, all of Judea and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.”Acts 1:8
He gives us the power of The Holy Spirit to fulfill our call, therefore we need not feel inadequate, for as Ephesians 6:10 tells us, “We are strong in the lord and in the power of His might.” It is His strength, His might, and His glory. The very strength and might of the Holy Spirit that filled our Savior when He was on the earth, going about, doing good and healing all that where afflicted by the devil; that same spirit now fills us to do the same. Like Jesus said in John 17:18, as the father sent Him, now he sends us.
Yeshua who was from Nazareth, whom God anointed with The Spirit of Holiness and with powerful abilities, and he went around healing those afflicted by The Evil One, because God was with him.Acts 10:38
He did everything by the powerful abilities of the spirit of holiness to be our example, to show us what we are to do, and that the Holy Spirit strengthens us to do it.
I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control. So do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, or of me, His prisoner. Instead, join me in suffering for the gospel by the power of God who has redeemed us and called us with a holy calling, not for our own works, but for His purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before the world began.”2 Timothy 1:6-9
Paul encourages his young protégé Timothy, his son in the spirit, to fearlessly live his calling. We are called to live fearlessly as well, to walk in the path illuminated by Jesus, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to live that destiny.
Like Moses coming down from the mountain, glowing with the presence of God; we must shine forth with the presence of God. Isaiah says, “Those that wait upon YHVH will renew their strength.” In the Hebrew it indicates that we are filled with His strength. How can we be strong enough to not fall to fate, strong enough to stand for destiny? The Bible repeatedly tells us, we must, “Wait upon (serve) YHVH.” We must spend time in His presence, and come forth shining with his glory, gushing with His love, overflowing with rivers of living water. This is what all hell fears, this is what all creation longs for: the manifestation of the son of God, revealing the ways of God to a world who has been suffering under the deluge of sin.
This is our call, the basis of our destiny: everyone who proclaims the name of Yeshua, and lives as he lived, re-present Him to the world, shining upon it the light within us, the light given to us by Christ, who is the light of the world. We must shine His light like a lighthouse on a hill, and cause the whole world to burn with it—we must set this world on fire! This is our call, as it was Paul’s; Jesus is sending us, as He did him.
Acts 26:18 “I send thee To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”
Do you see how we can get it so wrong with natural sight and thinking, “I’m not cut out for this, I’m not a natural leader, I don’t have any natural abilities, I’m not tall or mighty looking, I can’t possibly be God’s choice for king.” No, God is looking for the foolish of the world, the nobodies, the weak. We could get caught up looking at the natural and feeling like we are nothing, or we can look at Him which is within us and realise he has called us to be His mighty people, that He, the Creator, loves us, and has entrusted us with a plan and empowered us to fulfill it. And we’ll awaken the world with a mighty blow! like they said of Peter And John after they healed the lame man, then proclaimed to the religious council that they did it by the power of the name of Yeshua HaMeshiach, Jesus Christ. Acts 4:13
“When the council saw the courage of Peter and John, and yet knowing that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures, they were astonished and knew that these men had been with Jesus.”
You see these were Jesus’ revolutionaries, nobodies to the world, but filled with the power of The Holy Spirit, became a force to be reckoned with. Like them, we are God’s revolutionaries: Jesus has chosen you, He wants to use you to turn the world upside down. Acts 17:6 “Those that have turned the world upside down, have come here also.”
For you see your calling, brethren, how not many men who were considered wise in the world’s eye, nor powerful, nor wealthy, are called; but God has chosen those the world considers foolish to confound those who think they are wise; and God has chosen those the world considers powerless to overpower those regarded as powerful; and God has chosen those who are despised by the world, those who are considered to be worthless, and used them to make worthless what the world considers important: so that no one can toot their own horn, boasting of their own glory, in the presence of YHVH.1 Corinthians 1:26-31
But because you are united with Christ Jesus, through whom God has given us wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption: that as it is written, “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow it for the glory of YHVH.”
This shows there is hope for us that feel hopelessly inadequate. God chooses us to change the world. We are like Gideon, who felt like a nobody from a poor family, but God called him a Mighty Man of Valour, and raised him up to bring freedom to his people. There Are many the world will write off as nothing, but these written off ones are the very ones God is calling in this hour of great darkness to bring freedom to our people.
Throughout the Bible, God consistently, deliberately chooses people that others wouldn’t expect: the overlooked, exploited and abused, the underdog and the outcast. He chooses them to expose the pretensions of others, to bring low those who are puffed up, who think they are better.
We can really relate to feeling like a nobody, someone that the world looks down upon and hates. But the good news is we are God’s chosen, and we are strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. We dwell in His authority, and are sent out as His representatives. We speak His name, and demons tremble! Yet humbly we know it is all Him, not our abilities, talents, or good looks; nothing except for our saying, “Yes!” To follow Him and His loving Word.
Isn’t this our story? God chooses people despised by the world, and uses them! Yes, God is calling you and I today, as he did Moses many years ago. He hears the cries of His people, His creation is groaning, and He longs to use us to bring freedom to his people, as he did Moses. When He chose Moses, Moses though he wasn’t good enough, responding, “But I can’t do it, I can’t speak, I don’t talk well, I Stutter.” But God replied, “I will speak through you. I’ll give you the words and the ability, I created the tongue.” If only you have faith, trust in God, and do as He says, God will give you the power to fulfill your destiny. We needn’t worry as Moses did, thinking, “But how can I serve you? I’m just some nobody, broken, ugly, unloved, and hated; I’m not worthy to serve you, not equipped to do your will.” If anything, this only qualifies us more in God’s system of things. How beautiful is it that our Lord can take something despised and looked down on by the world, and use it to bring glory to His name; to bring revival, and revolution. That is our story my friends, you and I.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.”Ephesisns 16:10
“I pray that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, with mighty inner strength by his Spirit.”Ephesisns 3:16
In the Septuagint and the New Testament, the same Greek word is often used for might, strength, ability, and power; this word is “Dunamis”. Dunamis is the root word for the English words dynamite, and dynamic. That tells us that dunamis is a Greek word which represents a Hebrew word, which like most Hebrew words, are action words, referring to something that is dynamic, that moves, that does things. Dunamis refers to “inherent power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth.” That tells us that the power of God, and the abilities He has given us, resides within us like the inactive explosive power that resides in dynamite, and Jesus wants to light the fuse within us, be that spark which ignites the fuel within us, and sets the world ablaze! He wants his power within us to explode outward, the abilities He has given us to explode out from us and actively change the world; He wants us to be a dynamic force within the world, actively doing His works, as part of His body—He desires for us to go out and be world changers!
“I have come to set the world on fire, and I wish it were already ablaze!”Luke 12:49
This is based on what Tiavi spoke on at Cornerstone 2007, along with refinements and new portions I have added as the Spirit has led. For those of you that were at Cornerstone 2007, Tiavi thanks you so much, for Tiavi had a great time.
For those who read this, I pray for all of you, that you will burn with an unquenchable passion for Jesus, and long to live in His presence 24/7—God bless.
“God wants you to be in the world, but so different from the world that you will change it. Get cracking.”Mother Angelica
