In a prayer, I felt a very strong impression that God wants us as His people begin to function as salt and light of the world to the fullest.
The world out there will keep getting ‘darker’ and uncertain but the condition in the house of God that is built accurately, will experience the abundance of God’s grace that is more tremendous than in previous years.
Isaiah 60:1-2 (NJKV) Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.
From this contradictory condition between the world and the Church of God, it should be much easier for us to function as the salt and light of the world!
To respond these condition, there are several directions the Holy Spirit gives to me:
1. Keep building and transmitting the frequency of victorious spirit in daily life.
Most people will feel more ‘sorrow’, distress and heavy burdens in living their days in the new year. The political news sent signal that there will be a ‘trade war’ between US-China or even Indonesia versus Europe because they rejected Indonesian palm oil and Indonesia also showed rejection the will of Europe that is importing raw Nickel from Indonesia. All of these things will automatically bring a serious impact on the economy of Indonesia (and most likely on the political aspect too).
But apart from any form of ‘darkness and shadow of death’ that will happen over Indonesia and other nations, as His chosen people we have to keep building and growing the ‘victorious spirit’ in our daily lives!
By spreading the victorious spirit from our lives, everyone who interacts with us will surely enjoy the work of the ‘life-giving spirit’ that begins to imparted into their lives too!
There will be new hope and optimism that we impart to everyone who interacts with us! And it will take us as an individual, as a family or a community to step into the true gate of breakthrough that God has opened for us who believe!
2. Keep building and increasing the capacity of our spiritual man.
In a prayer, God gave me an illustration: We are like sailing in big river which is also the lip of a waterfall. So if we just keep quiet or have no motor that is strong enough to fight the river currents, then it is certain that our boat of life will surely be dragged by the river and crashing down into the waterfall.
This world will always try to ‘drag and throw’ us into the abyss of destruction that is caused by the current of flesh and the world. In order to keep living in the divinity, accuracy and glory of God, there is no other alternative we can do: We must continue to increase the capacity and dynamics of the work of the word and the Spirit in our lives.
I believe that the justice of God will truly manifest; starting from the year of 2020, anyone who earnestly pursues God will enjoy the benefits, while those who act recklessly over their spiritual lives will also face the consequences. 2020 will be the year of promotion for those who have been determined to pursue God; while for those who have let their lives continue to be controlled by the flesh, they will face the consequences of their inaccurate lives.
Make sure we continue to have the spirit of repentance in our lives so that every time the Holy Spirit gives direction, we will just obey Him. Have eyes the seeing eyes, the hearing ears and the obedient heart. Live this year 2020 in the direction and the covering of the Most High.#ILoveGod
