I’m surprised how God speaks to me during breaking the fast last January 11, 2013. I attended 3 out of 5 prayer meeting & worship night alone this time. I don’t know why but God knows I’m not that comfortable being alone, but during this times that I heard so much from God. It’s an intimate moment with God.
January 11, Friday, breaking the fast… I choose to go at 6:45 PM at the center, I do that intentionally because I’m alone! When i entered the center, there’s a lot of people on fire for worship, there’s no more sit in my favorite area (middle, right in front of the stage), so I was forced to sit in the area the I least like (left side corner) where I barely see Pastor speaking and worship team singing and praising (thought bubbles).
There I met a new friend Rio. As the worship countdown begins, everyone is shouting, praising, clapping, dancing and singing, and I just did the same. There’s an overflowing joy in my heart, not because finally I can eat tonight, but because I know that night will be one of the best night of worship. And I pray “Jesus, I want to praise you and honor you and I want to hear from you.”
As I worship, I felt that God is telling me in my heart and mind that “Joy, this year I will get you out of your comfort zone. Though I know you don’t like this, you’ll still obey and follow Me. Because out of your comfort zone, you will experience greater joy, favor, blessings and breakthroughs! Out of your comfort zone My Name will be honored and glorified! You will experience real joy, peace and confidence out of your comfort zone because you will trust me more. You will no longer depend on your own strengths and abilities, but rather depend on the power of the Holy Spirit who is at work within you NOW. Joy, get ready for a roller coaster ride, exciting BIGGER, GREATER 2013.” God promised in Zechariah 6:15 “Those who are far away will come and help to build the temple of the Lord, and you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to you. This will happen if you diligently obey the Lord your God.” Though, I don’t want this Lord, I will obey and follow wherever you leads me. Amen!
