Lingering at the Church

I’m lingering at the church this morning. Came for prayer. Captivated by His presence. Just sitting here pondering. Arrested in prayer by a song on my playlist. As it unfolded I thought, “This has to be an apostolic.” “Give me a love for truth…Because you are the truth.” I pulled out my phone and wasn’t disappointed. Dylan Woodward, blends a perfect combination of love for apostolic truth, with a loving, committed relationship with our God of Truth. The future of the apostolic movement is in great hands. May all who come behind us find us faithful.

I started to list, as I’ve got this song on constant repeat, what I’ve learned and prayed deep in my spirit as I sit here in a plush blue chair in our foyer. Well, kinda plush! Anyway, if I started listing all I would have written the whole song and would have broken copyright protocols a couple dozen times.

Dylan in his anointed song gives us direction in every single line.

Look it up. Listen to it. Learn it.

It’s been a good morning; lingering at the church. The walls have a message: Revival will begin here but will not be contained here. It will overflow into the streets, community, city, and world.

The seats are empty, the prayers are silent. Remember, we do not walk by sight, but by faith. Every prayer is stored in heaven. One day, soon, they will overflow and answered prayer will be poured out generously.

It’s Saturday and the altars are empty. But, look out defeated foe! Tomorrow, empty altars will be full, abundantly overflowing.

There are no sounds evident here. But tomorrow there will be the waves of grace and glory flooding the air space. Praises and prayers will meet together. His power and presence will be available to all.

Today, as I linger here, there is an empty edifice, but tomorrow it will be transformed into a hospital. Spiritual, physical, and emotional healings will abound. The ministry of restoration and reconciliation will be dispensed.

As I peek back into the dark sanctuary the pulpit is vacant. But, tomorrow, a pastor more lively than the Energizer bunny will declare the testimony of Jesus. It will be a clear, clarion, call. Challenge. Conviction. Change. How do I know? He does it EVERY time!

Well, the first arrival has entered. The choir practice starts in an hour. Yep, tomorrow, they will fill the platform with praise. Can hardly wait!

I’m going to leave today, so I can linger tomorrow!
