I had a beautiful encounter and I journaled it down and randomly thought of trying to turn it into a poem and therefore, “The Invite To The Table”.
2 nights ago, I was just processing life and went down this memory lane of how when I was a kid, I always wanted to sit at a huge table with my family(for context: it’s always been mom & me) but that never really happened and I too would move out soon.
I allowed myself to grieve about it. A lot of times we carry unnecessary wounds in our hearts not allowing our hearts to grieve, process with God/people, heal & let go coz of whatever X Y Z reasons.
With these thoughts going on, I started seeing an open eye vision where I saw God, Jesus & Holy Spirit laughing & sitting at a table full of food with one chair empty for me and invited me saying, “COME TO EAT WITH US”. *inserts 100 crying emojis*
Just want you to know if you’re away from your family or don’t have one, God is waiting at the table for you to commune with Him and He will also place you in a beautiful family. #his_grace_covers_us_in_the_areas_we_lack
Also, here I’m talking about my blood family, I have the most beautiful family I could ask for right now ~ FOLJ & Bridge Music.
Talking from my life ~ For many years I held onto fear, hurt and rejection. I never let God touch me in those areas. God didn’t make me go through it, ‘I chose’ to live in it,
Are you also resisting God in some area of your life? Stop blaming situations around you or your past. You can NOW walk in the peace that’s beyond all understanding. After all, Jesus is the Prince of Peace. And you are His child!!!! But He won’t force anything on you until you allow Him.
Wanna know how I tapped into it? All I said in my heart was, “Father, give me the strength to let go & forgive”. Yes!! that was pretty much it. Before saying these words no one laid hands on me nor did I fast for 20 days. After that I didn’t see any outward manifestations- oil didn’t flow out of my hands, I didn’t feel any goosebumps, nor did I feel any cold or hot wind. (I’m not against all that, but just sharing). A day later I suddenly realised that I didn’t feel anymore pain and had peace flowing in and out of me.
You too can choose to tap into the KAIROS(God’s time). It doesn’t skip the process but quickens it.
What are you still holding onto today — wounds from the past, offenses, hurt or even toxic relationships? Let go and let Him in. You can step into your God moment anytime. You have the grace to do so. Only you can decide how much of His light you allow in different areas of your life.
“You have authority over any storm you can sleep in.” – Bill Johnson
Rest is a fruit of dwelling in His presence and it’s in our DNA to operate from a place of rest but what are you dwelling on today?
Do not dwell on what the world is saying, for it is screaming death. My pastor (Ankit Sajwan) says it like this ~ Fear feeds on information but faith feeds on revelation. #dwellontheword Quiet down every voice and hear what the Father is saying (first of all say this in your heart, I am His sheep & I hear His voice).
Know Who You Are and What You Carry.
You are a TOUCH NOT ENTITY. You are the light that’s ought to shine in the darkness and it’s honestly sad if Christians are living in fear and all panicked at the moment because of this virus. I’m not saying I’m against you taking precautions or that it’s wrong but if you’re living in fear then that might be a problem coz living in fear is not for us and this weak virus is only thriving on fear.
Fear is a spirit and we know that God has not given us a spirit of fear but He’s given us authority over all the power of the enemy. (Luke 10:19 TPT ~ Now you understand that I have imparted to you all my authority to trample over his kingdom. You will trample upon every demon before you and overcome every power Satan possesses. Absolutely nothing will be able to harm you as you walk in this authority) and let me tell you, in Hebrews, ALL MEANS ALL & NOTHING means NOTHING… as simple as that.
So if you’ve read so far, I’d want you to do one thing before going to bed. I want you to imagine you’re holding a sword (or whatever weapon you like) and see yourself slaying the head of this virus or not just that, any fear that you may have. One last thing I wanna share about imagination. We know that in Matthew, it says, that if we even just look at someone with lustful eyes, it’s already done in the eyes of God and so it’s the same for the opposite annnnd I’ll leave you with this thought. 🙂 #imaginationispowerful
God has assigned each one of us in a family [I’m not just talking about blood relations here] where we will grow, learn, be nurtured, loved and accepted for who we are but wait… that’s not it! In a family, we will also fall, make mistakes, hurt each other and maybe even get offended.
If you’re looking for a perfect family, I’ll suggest that you drop that idea because a perfect family does not exist. It’s really very important to have a family where you know you belong coz without a family we cannot fulfill our calling or reach our destination. Yes, we might be able to get to some point but we won’t be able to reach the end.
So my church Family of Lord Jesus[FOLJ], It’s been two and a half years since I’m a part of this beautiful family and what a journey it’s been for me. ❤ So when I had initially started coming I saw this beautiful funny dream where I was in some heavenly realm and I was holding a beautiful new born baby which I knew was mine because I had that joy of a mother I guess[lol] and later when I woke up, I found it very weird but after a few days when I shared this with the pastor[Ankit dadda], he said that the baby represents destiny and that I need to nurture it just how one would nurture a baby for it to grow and it all made sense. That’s when I knew my journey had really started and now that I look back, I know I’ve grown in this family.
No matter which part of the world you are in right now or however much you travel, “FIND YOUR TRIBE”.
When you find your “tribe“, you start to “thrive“.
I want to share a vision that I saw recently. I saw these huge and tall shadows of people surrounding and looking down on me and then “suddenly” I saw God pick me up and I started to grow taller and taller and taller that these shadows now looked like ants.
So God said – it doesn’t matter who looks down on you, I have seated you in heavenly places, on the throne laughing with Me.
When people could speak against a perfect man(Jesus) then they will obviously speak against us who are imperfect. Let’s not be bothered about what people say but hear what the Father says over us and fulfill our walk. He sees you, He knows your heart & He knows you’ve been faithful and done your part even when others misunderstand you, it doesn’t matter. I pray that just like how God blessed Joseph’s brothers through him, the same way you will bless those people in your life. I pray that the stones that your enemies throw at you, with the same stones you will make a castle and gift it back to those people. Let your SUCCESS be an answer!
Be YOU whether on stage or off stage. We should have this culture where we don’t have to put a mask before coming on stage or before entering church to please anybody. A culture where we don’t need to show we’re perfect but accept each other as we are and grow towards perfection every day “together”.
The word says ~ For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.”
John 13:35 TPT
Yes, people look up to the leaders on stage I guess but understand that the people you see on stage aren’t Jesus and by that I mean don’t put them in this “perfect image”. Have grace on em the same way they have grace on you. And how much do they pray off stage? None of our business. It’s between God and that person. You weren’t there to see how much that person prayed in his closet and it is God who exalts like how it says in Matthew 6:6.
And even if you see someone’s not right then go pray for them instead of telling other people. They are your family and God’s children as much as you are.
And I’m not saying these things for anyone specific. If I have issues with someone, I speak to them face to face. God put this in my heart to share and so I’m doing it.
