Last week at church we watched the new HOLY GHOST MOVIE. mind blowing. heart stirring.
This clip is from a previous movie by the same producers, FATHER OF LIGHTS.
The youtube clip shows two different parts of the movie and the first, second and yes even up the fourth time watching it, made me cry happy tears. The first time I watched it I found myself on my feet clapping and crying. Spontaneously. It led me to coin a phrase that I use (in my own head and world!) to describe what happens when we step out and God steps in, in amazing unexpected heart shaking ways.
It shows how majestic, personal, powerful and amazing God is.
However, we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [frail, human] vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves 2 Cor 4:7 AMP
It is God who is majestic, personal, powerful and amazing.
The all surpassing power (as the NIV says) is of HIM. Not of myself and my ability.
I offer my YES and God works through me.
And He works through you.
God delights to use ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Even things as awesome as the “yellowshirt” moment.
I love talking to strangers about Jesus. But I know that its about these two things.
Knowing God and making Him known.
It begins with that personal heart to heart relationship – knowing God. When we see Him we want to know Him more and we want others to know this amazing grace and love demonstrated in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
It begins with saying yes to God, and having confidence in Him. It’s not my power or ability but His power and His ability. It’s not my words or actions, but His words and actions. I am just the vessel. I open wise to the possibility of what God can and will do. I let that be my motivation and that bigger yes stops me from saying no due to fear or insecurity.
Praying for the petrol station man last week was a yellowshirt moment.
The new mother who cried when we knocked on the door and offered to pray on the Street Outreach Team day was a yellowshirt moment.
The woman in the supermarket whose best friend had died that morning. Yes. She was a yellowshirt moment.
God so wants the world to know of His great love. He has positioned each one of us in our world for such a time as this, to demonstrate His goodness and greatness. This is HIS story.
“Sometimes the God of the universe pauses in the midst of all His creation to touch the heart of one person.”
Today, what are you saying YES to God about?
What scares you about saying YES to God?
