Chart A New Course

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:34,35

There is a key to movement and re-arranging in the body of Christ, and it's based on love. LOVE and COMPASSION compel us to ask ourselves what we can do for others. Pay attention to the little signals in your Spirit, for it's those spirit-led promptings that are clues to each one of us what God wants us to pray for others.

Many have been praying for dreams and promises to come to pass, but God never births alone. He uses the love, generosity and compassion of others to help bring about the fulfillment of divine purpose. We are designed to need each other, and to pull from the anointing in each other's lives. We are also called to be unselfish and giving. It's very important for us to realize the significance of letting go of what is in our hands when God asks us to. Many in the body of Christ have prayed for God to chart a new course for them, but it's important to remember that God could take something that seems so inconsequential in our estimation and use it to bring forth a miracle for someone else.

A few small fish and a couple small loaves of bread...

A crux of oil...

A last meal of a mouthful of bread...

It was all they had, but it was also all that was needed at the exact moment that God prompted them to give it.

We still read the testimonies of those miracles today.

And what happened? God charted a new course for those
that were involved in making the miracles occur.

The biggest struggle people go through at times can be within their own heart and mind. Nothing really belongs to us. If God gave it to us, then He may someday ask us to give it away and be ready to move on to something else. If God asks us to pray for someone, and that request may only come as a simple nudge of compassion towards someone else...then pray that you are sensitive to the leading of God's spirit. You never know if He chose you to be the one to pray and release someone else's miracle! Sometimes, being obedient to help make someone else's breakthrough occur is a requirement to our own heart's desire coming to pass. We should all be asking God who He wants us to pray for and what we can do for someone else. LOVE wants to help others see their miracle come to pass! When the wind of His Spirit blows, respond, for it is in His promptings that He charts a new course and draws us into moving WITH Him.
