Church we’re in a kairos moment. There’s an invitation to pause, draw near to God and wait on Him right now. As the Government have asked that we take 15 days to limit our movements we felt to call 15 days of prayer. Every day one of our Newlife team will share what God speaking to them for us a family. Join us as we refuse fear, pray for the earth and take time not to be busy – but to be still and wait on the Lord.
Our first devotional is from Candace Lawrence who shared with us:
“This morning the Lord was stirring my heart and I kept hearing Him say, “Arise my church, for I am positioning you for such as time as this”.
He pointed out two things in that phrase, “arise” and “positioning you for such a time as this”. As I looked into those two, I was taken to Esther 4:13-14. I felt the Lord say, “We are entering an Esther Era”. I sat and asked what an Esther Era is and what does it look like. I feel the Lord is positioning the church right now to reach their community more than ever. He is calling us to lay down our personal kingdom to lift up His Kingdom.
We are all called to be Esther right now and partner with the Lord in his strength. Esther laid down her self-preserving mindset to save her people and that is what we are to do in this time. God is calling us to rise up above fear and doubt because He has put us in this position for such a time as this!”
Would you take time every day for the next 15 days and pray with us as a community? If so, we’d love to hear from you via email or on social media. What is God saying to you right now? And how is He using you to reach the community for such a time as this?
