Renewed Strength

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

The Lord has surely renew our strength during camp and the camp fires are still burning.  The Holy Spirit
honored us again with His Presence Sunday Morning.  It is usually a time for a salvation message because that is usually when we have visitors.  But the Lord had different plans that morning.  In a special song He started moving amidst the congregation and people started minding God.  Oh, how sweet it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. 

We don't know what the Lord is trying to do ~ but we do know we want to follow His plan.  The altars were full, tears fell on the altar, testimonies were given.  People are coming from different places because they have heard we are in revival.  Not that we have church every night ~ but the saints of God seem to have a greater burden and are praying more and when we all go to church we bring that spirit with us.

We are aware the devil does not like it, so that means we are in a battle with darkness in high places.  It is a spiritual battle.  But we are over comers.  I am reminded of Daniel, when he prayed ~ his answer was on the way.  But the enemy got in battle with the angel that was bringing him a message.  The devil did not want
Daniel to get that message.  Daniel 10: 12-13  "Then he said unto me, Fear not Daniel; for from  the first day that thou didst set  thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.  But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days; but, lo, Michael one of the chief princes, came to help me, and I remained there with the king of Persia."

We think, sometimes that the Lord does not hear our prayer, but can I remind you that He heard it from the time you uttered it.  I think the Lord has heard our cry for a spirit of prayer and revival and has sent showers of blessings.  There is much to be done, the things that seem impossible to us are possible to God.  He hears our cry.   The enemy has already sent an almost tragedy in our midst, but God intervened.  He is watching over His people.  We are searching our hearts to see what the Lord wants each of us to do.  If it is cleaning toilets or whatever, It means just as much to the Lord as that one that is seen. 

I just thank the Lord for this move in our church.  We are praying that it will flow out and others may get in.
We never know what to expect when we go to church but I can tell you there is a great spirit there.  It is because the people have a mind to work and the main factor is to obey.  Thank God for a pastor that is sensitive to the Spirit.  He always says he cannot improve on the Holy Spirit. 

I will try and keep you up with what comes next.  If you are interested.  If not, you don't have to read this.
Personally, I think the Lord is trying to get His people ready for His coming and we need to work while we still have time.  Until next time, God bless!
                                                              Always, Aliene

Hi Aliene, Sorry I haven't been by. First I couldn't get into my blog or email, then Our family came from Alberta for a visit. I have a few spare moments, so I was browsing through my blogs and noticed you had posted this days ago.
What a blessing to hear about what's happening in your church!
