Quality versus Quantity…

It’s not the quantity of our lives which matters but the quality…

The Lord’s just shown me that it’s better to “burn out” for Him in complete surrender and be “gunned down” or martyred if so required than to live in a fear of “self protection” and “self preservation”…

Even sometimes we say, I know I’ve thought it, “But Lord, You’ve given me all these promises for my life and if I went out and did that then I might die and then they won’t happen”…

The Lord’s just shown me that I can live in abandon to His will because if it truly is His will then He will surely bring it to pass…

Paul was stoned and left for dead – which is probably when he had his experience in the third heaven – but he got up after that and went back in to the city – nothing can hold us down… 🙂

True martyrs don’t care about their lives – they know that the Lord will raise others up (very good thing to keep in mind – cos it’s all about His Glory not ours)… 🙂

I believe Paul counted it a great priviledge to be stoned for Jesus – he had watched Stephen – that mighty man of God – stoned for his testimony to Jesus – and he had heard what Stephen said, “I see heaven open and Jesus standing at the Right Hand of God”…

He, Paul, would have found it a priviledge to be stoned for Jesus…

And so should we – our joy is in our surrender – moment by moment – to allow the Lord to work in us – not to strive – not to “keep score” but just to allow the Lord to work in us and to wait for Him to do so – if we have this quality of life – then we don’t want to sacrifice it for anything…

A few short days with this quality of life is better than a whole lifetime of “self preservation”…

Love in the Lord,

Andrew

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
