Invite Him In

Given May 7, 2006
It was an overwelming time during Praise & Worship this morning at our church, at least for me. I do the morning prayer right after Praise & Worship time and I was having some difficulty even walking and talking because of two things.

One, God had directed me to pray for peace and read the scripture in Phillipians 4 that speaks about joy, worry and peace. Well, don't you know, our pastor, (who leads Praise & Worship), said he was led to sing, "Peace, peace, wonderful peace. Coming down from the Father above...". That confirmed that peace is what the people needed to hear that day. What an awesome God!

Two, what really brought the tears was a vision I received during that time. I was thinking about how the Holy Spirit is a gentleman and won't force Himself in where He's not invited, even in churches. But when we invite Him in through praise, worship, or prayer, He comes in readily.

The vision I got was of Jesus coming into the church with a big smile on His face and leading a crowd of people and they were all very happy. These people represented the answers to our needs. Salvation was there, along with Healing, Wisdom, Deliverance, Provision, and all the other needs we have. We would run up to Jesus and He knew us! He greeted each of us like He really knew us and was happy to see us, (and He does and is). Then He, knowing our need, would turn and introduce us to Healing or Deliverance, or whoever and say, "Go with him, he'll help you out." And the point was that we ran to Jesus first then He introduced us to the answer to our need.

If we invite Jesus in, He will come and bring with Him everything that we need. "God inhabits the praises of His people, Psalms 22:3". "And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Phillipians 4:19" What a beautiful picture!
