Our corporate “Show me your glory” fast just ended on Friday. After time reflecting this weekend, I find myself very grateful. We ran an intense schedule, yet I am thankful for how much we were able to pack into it. We as a team have now read through the entire Bible together. We finished on Friday night at the World War ll memorial here in DC. We each stood representing our home states as we proclaimed the last few chapters of Revelation. “Come, Lord Jesus.” We also went to through two teaching projects during the fast. They were super challenging. The Lord has revealed so much to us. I walk away from the fast with a greater hunger for the truth that only Jesus offers. We are preparing for The Call (a national day of fasting and prayer here in DC on Saturday) this week. Our schedule for the Fall is beginning to form, and I am looking forward to all that is to come!
“And there was a prophetess, Anna… She never left the temple, serving night and day with fastings and prayers. At that very moment she came up and began giving thanks to God, and continued to speak of Him to all those who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem.” Luke 2:36-38
I love it when the Lord brings me back to a place of simplicity. What do you have for this Anna today thousands of years later Lord? What does it look like for me an intercessor in the 21st century? The answer draws me closer to the One who knows me best. I feel 2 things, one to simply seek Him first, and all these things will be added unto me, and second to recognize Him. Anna in the temple knew that her Savior had come. She glanced at that swaddled newborn, and knew her prophecies had been fulfilled. With this, I am asking for a heightened sensitivity. How often is He in my midst, yet I don’t even recognize Him? Thank you Lord for the privilege of seeking you daily. Open my eyes to see you!
