A long While Update!

Hey bloggers and readers! Thanks once again for visiting and apologies for the lateness since the last update! Just thought that I could take this time just to give an awesome update certain things God has been speaking to me and also some testimonies over the past few weeks! Hope this will encourage your heart.

In this season I've been sensing the LORD’s leading in exposure to different places, like House Of Prayer Singapore (HOPS) for an instance. Have been visiting there for a while, and I got the chance to meet some really passionate Christians who love to worship the LORD together. Hearing them share their testimonies, and also being able to share about His goodness being upon my life is really a joy (this isn't pun intended haha).

Just last week when I was at HOPS, I felt God wanting me to just rest, abide and be in a position of receiving. And I remembered when I was just relaxing, I felt a weight of glory all over me [specifically over my head], and it felt like God was building a bride’s veil over me. I didn't really understood what it meant actually; I was just reminded about the Church being the Bride of Christ. 2 hours later, a lady came and prayed over me, telling me that “I saw you wearing a Bride’s veil”. I was so shocked (it was a good shock though haha), and her prayer confirmed what God was speaking to me initially, that “God is raising up His Bride, having the standard of purity defined by Him alone.” This was just one of the things God spoke to me while I was at HOPS – listing down everything will really be too much haha. I’m really thankful that God always desires to bring me [and us as His children] closer to Him every single day, and He loves to reveal His heart to us whom He loves.

Another significant event I went for was Kingdom Invasion Conference, with guest speakers like Heidi Baker, Randy Clark and Tom Jones. Came out of the Conference with a deeper realization of God as my Dad - a Person whom I can relate to, the importance of dwelling and going deeper in the Secret Place, Oneness with the Spirit, etc (will share more next time if I can).

Reflecting upon all my experiences, I can say that I’m really glad that each encounter is a time where God’s heart is revealed to me more. I don’t seek experiences for the sake of experiencing – I desire the Father’s heart to be made known, having a Kingdom mindset (speaking about this, I came across this link which you can click here), and getting the fruit produced which is the settlement of my identity as His kid, boldness and faith. I really believe it is Daddy God’s desire for His kids to be like John the Beloved – laying upon His bosom, hearing His heartbeat, not getting distracted by the voices of the world and even people around, but just getting a clear, accurate picture of the true revelation of Him [from the Word].

I don’t think I've gotten to the full measure of intimacy with the Father yet (I feel I’m quite far from this actually). But one thing that Daddy God celebrates for me, which I also do, is the small steps I've been taking each day, and the closeness He wants me to enjoy with Him. Though seeming small or even like nothing in some human eyes, I knew something was shifting and growth is taking place.  Just want to end off saying that God is really GOOD – this makes my heart glad! :D

Also, with a question for thought:
How do people define growth in their Christian walk? Is this the growth that God is looking at for they themselves [or even in others] in their season? (Something that's on my heart that I've been seeking God for now)

  1. It is so, so good to be here again Joy! HOPS sounds like a wonderful faith filled place! :) I think as we growing into Christ we learn to trust Jesus with everything. He will never forces us to worship Him and obey Him, BUT by simply surrendering to Him, He will live out His life in us! What a wondrous gift and opportunity we have to experience the very presence of God living in us! :)

    Blessings and love my friend,
    Denise
