Seeking God More
I've been in Keystone, CO the last two days with my precious wife Pamela, James & Betty Robison and about 50 pastors. James and Betty convened this summit to hear from God and share what God was stirring in them. Pam and I were fortunate to receive an invitation.
Miles McPherson and James Garlow (both San Diego pastors) are here; other than them, I don’t know anyone else personally. It has been a RICH time. I have wept more these past two days than in a long time. Very cleansing for the soul. Some of what was shared here was for the moment only, but there are things that might be of benefit to the larger body of Christ and are worth pondering.
It’s hard to “download” all that God has done and spoken here, so I’m just going to share a few words right now and then more later.
- The more sensitive you become to God, the more sensitive you become to others.
- Jesus never went to the mountains to get power. He had all the power of Heaven at His disposal. He went to the mountain to hear the voice of the Father instead of the cries of the masses.
- God cannot accomplish through you what He wills to do until He is able to do in you what He wills to do.
Those 3 things are a good start. Here are some initial responses from me:
- If I am more in love with God every day and hour, then I will love people more every day and hour.
- Why am I always seeking more power, strategy, strength, techniques rather than seeking more of the Father? This is an Achilles heel for me personally. Do I want God more than I want His resources? Is my “doing” flowing from my “being” or am I always “doing” in order to “become”. OVERFLOW!!
- Surrender to the hand of God is the daily/hour (moment by moment!) choice of walking in the Spirit vs. walking in the Flesh. How much of my life and ministry and the ministries of our churches are about us, and how much is about HIM?
I want to know that what I am doing and what we are doing is coming from the Father and not simply for Him.
These are my first reflections from meeting God at the mountain!
