Value of Testimonies

As I look around my desk this morning I see some interesting things that remind me of the goodness of God and the focus I need to have each day. There is a stack of one dollar chips from a handful of casinos in Las Vegas that remind me to be a risk taker and go all in every day. There’s a piece of communications wire that tells me to unplug each day and spend time with God. And, there’s a small wooden box that contains a list of some of the first words of knowledge and miracles I saw, along with a few feathers that appeared in our house. And it makes me think about the importance of testimonies. It is so important to share what God is doing. Even the things that seem so small to you might be a really big deal to someone else. This is why we try to grab a quick video when a miracle happens. It’s not about showing off what we can do; it’s about showing off what God has done. Testimonies are markers in our lives that clearly indicate an encounter with God that shifted things into a new direction. They are reminders of what God has done, and an encouragement of what he will do for others. Miracles are happening more often than most people realize but I feel like we aren’t doing a great job, outside of this relatively small community of supernatural believers, to spread the word. I want to challenge everyone today, if you see a testimony on social media, don’t just like it, share it. And if God has performed a miracle through you or in you, share that with as many people as you can; especially the ones who don’t believe. We can all be a little more proactive at spreading the good news. I have been lacking in this myself and you will definitely see a lot more testimony content from us on the standard social media sites in the near future. Let’s make Jesus even more famous on the earth!

The greatest pursuit

“Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness” – Matt. 6:33
“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” – Matt. 6:10

Pursuing the kingdom of God is my number one goal. Seeing his kingdom firmly planted on the earth is my number one mission. Nothing comes close to my desire to experience more of his kingdom, to encounter him in new ways, to not only pursue him, but to grab hold of the one I pursue and never let go. Nothing, no title, no position, no stature, will ever sway me from this goal. I want to see the principles of his kingdom released everywhere I go. I want the people I encounter to have an encounter with the King of the universe. People need this encounter. So many are hurting, so many are confused, so many are desperate for truth but they don’t know where to look. They want a greater kingdom and a greater reality, but so many of them haven’t quite realized where to focus their pursuits. We can point them in the right direction. But it all starts with our personal pursuit.

This hasn’t always been my number one goal, but when I realized what I had been missing, and how much more was available, it shifted me into this pursuit and I am determined to never let my focus shift in a different direction. I never could have imagined where it was going to take me and the experiences I was going to have, and I wouldn’t change any of it. The more I pursue his kingdom, the more I encounter his goodness, and the more I have that can be given away to others every day. Some people look at me like I am crazy. That used to bother me, but I have learned that they only think I am crazy because they haven’t encountered the King the way that I have. If we want to see the world changed, if we wane earth to look like heaven, we have to passionately pursue his kingdom and his righteousness. Then, we can give the world the encounter that they need.

Stay Hungry

There’s something about hunger that attracts the presence of God. He is attracted to our desire for more of him, he is drawn to the spiritual hunger that is within us. God can certainly encounter anyone at anytime regardless of whether or not they are pursuing him, Saul is a good example of that. But, when we get hungry for more of him and start to pursue the relationship as something that is the most important thing to us, it shifts something in the spirit realm and causes the attention of the Creator of the universe to be focused on us. I wasn’t always hungry for more but, when I became hungry, God started to show up in new ways. If you heard the everyday conversations that happen in our house you would probably think we are crazy. There is a constant flurry of spiritual activity in our house. I feel Holy Spirit hovering over the bed when I wake up, I feel the angels moving through the kitchen when I am making coffee, and throughout the day the presence of God seems to fill whatever room we are in. None of this happened before the hunger. None of this occurred before the pursuit. Jesus said that we need to love God with everything we have; our heart, soul, mind, and strength. It’s a relationship like no other and it requires our devotion and pursuit like no other. And the payoff is amazing. There is simply nothing like hanging out with God. If you aren’t hungry, get hungry. Ask God for a hunger for him that will never be satisfied. And if you are already hungry, get even hungrier. We can never have enough of him. Stay hungry, my friends.
