Know and Overflow…

Know and Overflow…

This came out as I was biking in to work this morning…

(Trying to save money on petrol – petrol is so expensive)

I was brought up in a particular Christian “stream” where the “tagline” was “To Know Him and to make Him Known”…

I remember discussing/arguing (politely) with my Grandfather over this and saying – many years ago – “it’s to Know Him and the rest will just follow”…

But he disagreed – he wanted it to be a requirement that we made Him known…

It just kind of “spilled out” of me this morning on the way in to work that as I know Him I naturally reflect what I know of Him to everyone else around me – it is natural – and the word which came out was overflow…

I’d shared this a few weeks ago with a brother at church and he was blessed but I get it now…

We think, “we need to make Jesus known” and we’re striving out of that place of trying to “make Jesus known” to gain approval with God and make ourselves feel “better” about ourselves – when He is calling us to just come and soak under the waterfall of His love – with our hands raised and letting that clear, crystal water cascade down all over us and really invigorate our souls and our entire beings – we will be renewed and practically transformed by standing underneath – being soaked by the waterfall of His Love…

As we are – we will naturally reflect or transmit that experience of being Loved by Him to all who we come across…

He came to set us free…

True freedom is to know His Unconditional Love for us…

This is what transforms us – transforms us from glory to glory…

My focus is to give myself to Him for Him to love me – for this is what He created me for – to be loved by Him – to see His Glory – His Glory is His Love – I really believe this – yes, His Holiness, His Righteousness but mercy triumphs over judgement and out of faith, hope and love the greatest of these is Love…

I am won by His Love…

I am in awe of His Holiness…

I love His Righteousness and His Justice but I am overwhelmed and completely undone by His Love…

His Love has won me…

And it will win all around me as I focus on Him and allow Him to love me – as I allow Him to love me I will in turn love Him and in turn love all around me…

The Greatest of these is Love…

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
