2011 – going deeper ……..

…………………………
As the deer panteth for the water
So my soul longeth after thee
You alone are my hearts desire
And I long to worship thee
Chorus
You alone are my strength my shield
To You alone may my spirit yield


You alone are my hearts desire
And I long to worship thee
You’re my friend and You are my brother,
Even though you are a king.
I love you more thank any other,
So much more than anything.
I want You more than gold or silver,


Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy Giver,
And the apple of my eye.

With thanks to  Marth Nystrom
I feel the Lord saying that 2010 started a new season in the body of Christ, a new and fresh season and each successive year He is going to add upon the previous year. Almost like laying one foundation upon another so that the final product cannot be rocked by any storm that would come against it.
 
Where last year was learning to speak to dry bones in our lives and pronounce Life, this year will be Life more abundantly in His call for us to go deeper. This call to panting for His presence is both individual and corporate – one without the other will not restore His presence to the depth we want.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 (New International Version, ©2010)

12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

We need to walk in unity and openness with one another as more and more the days of the single minister is passing and team ministry is replacing it. 
 
I foresee that groups of folk who change and go deeper and bolder into this season having much more breakthrough than their counterparts. So beware church leaders, more and more folk are going to get restless of doing church the same old way, more are going to leave the formal structures in search of more than great teaching on Sunday and a homecell meeting midweek. The church needs to get out the building, not sporadically, but as a major focus of church life.

Agape,
 
da pope
