The Flow

The Flow

In all we do, what makes us come alive? What lights up our whole being, gives us continued excitement and stirs up our passionate heart? The answer tells us what we should be doing to find greater fulfillment.

What we are anointed to do flows out of us and can clearly be seen. Our talents come forth automatically wherever we are and in all circumstances. For example, a teacher will have the tendency to teach even in little things. An administrator will appear to be controlling because she attempts to take over a situation to help whenever possible. A lady’s countenance will change the moment she has an opportunity to re-arrange the kitchen and walk in her anointing.  She will become alive! A man, who is usually very quiet and reserved, may be asked to sing. The very moment he begins, he is visibly in a place of joy because the anointing on His gift touches all those present.

Because of our busy lives, how we are involved may be by necessity and not allow us opportunities to know the giftings we’ve been endowed with by the Holy Spirit. However, as we seek the Lord they will emerge. The key is to be aware of the desires God has placed in our hearts, and He will give us occasions to stir up our gifts. When we know what our gifts are, we can trust they will increasingly flow as we go, from glory to glory!

John 7:37-38 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

 

Did It Fall?

Did It Fall?

In times when our strength is failing, our passion is dissipating or our fire is extinguishing, we find ourselves hindered from going forth to fulfill our purpose. Something happened to cause it to be so and we need to recall the situation we went through in order to regain ground.

Was it a disappointment? A hardship or a loss? It could happen suddenly or in a subtle way. The suddenly is easier to detect. What has dropped gradually is not evident. As we seek the Lord He will reveal that place. It takes humility to face what may have happened. Even at times when we don’t discern the cause of a change, recognizing there is one will help us allow the Spirit of God to deal with it. We pray daily for truth to shine upon us and by faith, pick up what He reveals so graciously.

As we realize where our fire seems to have been put out, we can trust we can be quickened again and again. What may have been quenched has not disappeared; it just needs to be rekindled. The power of God can make what appears to be lost rise back up to the surface. All the time we think it’s no longer there, it still is. We just cannot reach it without His help. God has a way to pick us back up and restore us to a greater place than where we were before, from glory to glory! 

2 Kings 6:6-7 So the man of God said, “Where did it fall?” And he showed him the place. So he cut off a stick, and threw it in there; and he made the iron float. Therefore he said, “Pick it up for yourself.” So he reached out his hand and took it.
