Several weeks ago, David Demian invited me to be part of an Isaiah 19 intercessory group. So, for the last few weeks I have been joining a wide group of leaders from around the world on a Zoom call that is led by Asher Intrater and David Demian.
The focus of the call is establishing relationship among leaders in the Body of Christ regarding Isaiah 19:18-25 and praying those scriptures into being.
Warm greetings to each of you.
As you are aware, a couple of weeks ago, we made the difficult decision to cancel the venue in North Carolina because the Governor has allowed no more than 10 people to meet in the ballroom.
Since that time, we have explored meeting in an alternate location. And, we have held off making any announcements because the restrictions in each state seem to change weekly.
Greetings to all!
As I have watched the news and hear the growing distress the world is experiencing, my heart continually turns to God.
I am aware that many are experiencing health issues…and the Lord spoke this scripture so strongly to my heart last evening.
But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My Name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings. Mal 4:2a
There is something strong in the atmosphere that needs to be confronted and broken.
For that reason, I feel we should take the remaining days of July to fast, in whatever fashion God would speak to you. It can be a partial fast - one meal a day, or one particular food, an activity, a negative mindset, a place of unbelief, fear, anxiety, or any negative lie against all that Jesus Christ purchased for us on The Cross.
In the past two months, we have been blessed and amazed at how Aglow groups have realized that normal tithes and offerings have been affected by the global lockdown and purposed to send in funds.
Our hearts have been touched by the personal comments and prayers, and the love and care the Aglow family is displaying.
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, the news is strongly telling us to “Shelter in place!” Leaders are trying to find ways to control the further outbreak of this insidious virus. It seems, that in a short amount of time a strong storm has hit our shores.
Recently my attention was drawn to a small box that has been sitting on my desk for several months. It was a thoughtful gift given to me by Ezra Eini, a longtime friend in Israel. Ezra has been our main tour guide these many years that Aglow has traveled the Holy Land.
As I reflect and meditate on what God has been saying to us in Aglow, I am struck with the clarity and power God has been speaking to us about the importance of His Presence.
At our 2019 Jerusalem Convocation in September, I shared that one of our IBOD members had recently asked me what I wanted in Aglow and I replied, "His Presence." And again, in a letter to you earlier this month I said, "Without God in our personal lives and in our meetings, we really have nothing."
Recently, I was reading a scripture in one of my favorite books by Dr. A.W. Tozer, and it said:
My soul followeth hard after Thee. Thy right hand upholdeth me. ~Psalm 63:8 KJV
Tozer went on to say, The impulse to pursue God originates with God, but the outworking of that impulse is our following hard after Him. God is always previous.
