We Are Privileged

Well, we studied Acts 22 over a month ago, but there is a phrase in that chapter that I cannot get out of my head. It has lingered like a wonderful fragrance that causes me to pause and take a deep, delightful breath. This is the phrase: “The God of our fathers has appointed you to know His will, to see the Righteous One, and to hear a voice from His mouth.” 

 

Oh what a privilege it is to know what God is thinking, to see Him as the Righteous, Innocent, and Holy God that He is, and to hear His gentle whispers of guidance and identity. 
 
Just last week I was with a group of guys and I shared that I was having a heavy week. As they gathered around me and prayed, God spoke to my soul. The way He spoke to me relieved my stress and the words He spoke to me guided and strengthened me at the same time. 
 
Oh what a privilege it is to know what God is thinking, to see Him as the Righteous, Innocent, and Holy God that He is, and to hear His gentle whispers of guidance and identity. 
 
Today, I hope that you are enjoying this marvelous privilege that Christ made possible for us. 
 
In last week’s post, Jay Murphy shared with us what God was teaching him through the Urban Kinetic project. This week I want to share with you another testimony. Funny enough, this one is from Jay’s wife, Kirstin:
 
"I joined my hubby (Jay) and Faith and Judy today for the Urban Kinetic outreach at Phoenix Rescue Mission. Oscar, who runs the place, asked me if I would be willing to help the people walk their groceries out to their car, load them up and offer to pray for them.  I said, "Yes, of course!" 

"One by one I had great connections. They were grateful for my help and the majority of the people I asked accepted prayer. We prayed for healing in their bodies, favor, provision, direction, more of the Lord, for a smooth delivery for a pregnant mama, for families—it was sweet!

"When we got back to Living Streams, I saw a Living Streams staff member crying, and I stopped to ask what was going on, and heard her story. I sensed the Lord say, 'This is the idea behind Urban Kinetic. Be available wherever you are. If you’re helping people who need food assistance or you're at church with people who can buy their own food, it doesn’t matter. They are all my children. They all need someone to reach out, be present, and call upon Jesus.' 

"So, may we, the Body, be present. Present In the grocery store, our homes, our kids' sporting events, a rescue shelter—wherever we are, long after Urban Kinetic is over."
 
By His grace and for His glory,
