Free 2b Face to Face
Isaiah 43:19 "Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."
So often we talk about walking in personal relationship or in other words in intimacy with our God, but what are we really talking about? What does a personal relationship with God really look like on a Monday morning? Does our redemptive gift play a role in how we experience our intimacy with God? How do I overcome my battlefield? Is warfare intimacy? What needs to happen for us to experience reconciliation and closure when we sinned so that we can return to intimacy with our Father? Over the years I have asked these questions myself and I have heard many of my friends ask the same questions. Towards the end of 2014 the Lord gave me the word from Isaiah 43:19. In the second half of the verse he says he wants to make a way in our wilderness and he wants to bring rivers into our desert. I understood it as to say that he wants to pour out the living water of His Spirit into the dry and desolate places of our hearts. Into those areas where intimacy and personal relationship with him is not yet a living stream of water bubbling from his throne. What a promise and what an expectation to have of 2015 that the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords wants to bring life to the dry and dead places of my relationship with him! In the first half of the verse he said he would do it through a new thing and that we have to be careful to know and give heed to it as it springs forth inside of us.
This became the vision and mandate of our brand new weekend course Free 2b Face to Face. Thank you so much to Lighthouse Ministries in Struisbaai who assisted us with the pilot weekend. There were many highlights during the weekend it was an eye opener to listen to people speaking about how they experience their intimacy with God the Father, Jesus the King, Bridegroom, Saviour and Son of God as well as with the Holy Spirit. Fascinating testimonies came from the activities and God gave us a task to fulfill. We had to fill a big bottle with scripture and send it off to sea. Somewhere there is someone who has a divine appointment with a message from God in a bottle! One young man wrote a song, another spoke about how God showed him he is a lump of clay in Father’s hands, one lady made a heart and “filled” the heart with scripture God gave her, another brought herself as an instrument of worship and warfare and a living sacrifice to him. He is so faithful when we draw near to him no matter in what way – he draws near to us. He draws us unto himself. We give Father all the glory and honour for a wonderful weekend in his presence!Below you can have a look at the weekend program.
