Servanthood…

The Lord gave me a revelation this morning on Servanthood…

I was thinking about serving my wife…

As I saw what I saw, I saw that in that place of Servanthood where I chose to allow the Lord to instruct me to serve my wife, i.e. taking my instruction from the Lord but being a vessel in His Hands to serve my wife, that I was free from any selfishness towards my wife…

Then the picture quickly changed to me having this attitude towards everyone in the world – this Servanthood where I’d offered myself to the Lord to follow His Instructions to love/serve everyone in the world…

This is different to being at someone’s “beck and call”…

We are offering ourselves to the Lord – so we are really (as scripture says) “serving the Lord Christ”…

And then I saw my boss (my CEO) and realised that I could also do the same for him – surrender myself to the Lord as His Servant to serve my boss as the Lord led me…

This takes out any human control…

We are serving the Lord Christ and showing these precious ones – our wives, our bosses and anyone else we come across – our workmates – His Love toward them as we serve them as the Lord directs us to…

There is no human control in this – we are following the Lord’s leading in submission to Him – and in this place there is no expectation of anything for ourselves and we are free from the anger which comes with that expectation – with that selfishness – and free from the control which “gnaws away” at us as we want to “get something” out of whatever relationship it is that we are focused on at the present…

To serve is the solution and this is what we were designed to do – to serve the Lord and as we do He serves others through us – if the entire world was functioning in this way it would be a perfect “other centred” world… 🙂

Hallelujah!!!

I can see it so I know it can happen in God’s will…

Nothing will be impossible for those who believe… 🙂

Love you all,

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 Principal Structural Engineer, 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
