Prayer On The Road

 Ever since my first car accident, my car has been a prayer 'altar' where I spend flexible devotion time with my Father. While I was on my way to work one day I thought about a friend who was in KL, accompanying her father for a heart surgery. God jus popped her into my mind while I was pondering on some upcoming events. No relation to her. I messaged to know if surgery is over. At that point, the father just went in awhile before my message.

 So I went into praying in tongues and suddenly a new tongue came and I asked God for interpretation. The impression came that I have to pray against the enemy from taking his life. Suddenly I remembered she told me the father is not a believer yet. And I confirmed with her. 
My whole drive to work was a warfare time. I believed God was doing something in their lives as a family and there was an opportunity for the father to come to Christ.

The next day, I messaged my friend to asked " All good?🙏🏻" A little afraid of the reply cos I remembered my doctor friend, oncologist told stories how she prayed for her patients till they die. "probably it was their time"  and fear crept in a little but another part of me was pretty convicted and sure that it all went well.

And so the reply came " Praise the Lord, Yes! Taking a bus down later "

All glory to God!😃

God's Surprises in Worship

1 Corinthians 2:9
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
for those who love him.”

Little did I know that God would answer so quickly. I was just pondering on things people comment on their worship leading and corporate worship. Before I could think of the question or articulate it in prayer, God gave me this verse (as above) and I asked God,
"What does that have to do with worship ?" 

He said " Worship is as simple as loving Me in transparency and then be prepared to receive the mysteries that I have prepared for each one of you. You do not know what I might do the next second, the next minute during the time as you worship. Give me your true worship and just wait on Me."

So true as it says No eyes has seen nor ear has heard and no mind has imagined- NO ONE KNOWS. ONLY WHEN HE CHOOSES TO REVEAL. The next second might be a miracle moment,it might be a touch of God, angels might appear, who knows!

I thought to myself it's just so typical of us to complicate a relationship. We have this Almighty Father who loves us so much He gave His only Son for us. His Word speaks a million things on His love for us and the things He wants to do for us.

May we learn to worship in spirit and in truth, stripping pride aside,laying down ourselves bare before Him. And come in expectation to experience Him in many different ways during worship. His presence is all that matters, all that makes worship matters in any church or meeting.

John 1:14
10For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside. I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

Psalm 84:
1How lovely are Your dwelling places,
            O LORD of hosts!

      2My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the LORD;
            My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
      3The bird also has found a house,
            And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young,
            Even Your altars, O LORD of hosts,
            My King and my God.

      4How blessed are those who dwell in Your house!
            They are ever praising You. 

John 4: 23-24

23But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth
