Love (Part 2)…

When it’s all said and done love is the victor…

The Lord has exercised me this week…

I feel a lot better for it… šŸ™‚

It really isn’t about happenings…

It’s about surrendering to the Lord in all things…

Being ambivalent about what the Lord allows to happen…

And from that place of ambivalence or surrender comes the ability to hear His Voice assuring you of what He’s said and what’s He going to perform…

Thinking about others instead of yourself…

Getting over your own pain and then focusing on others and what they must be going through…

Then the Lord is free to speak…

He asked me about the ones who I’d been interceding for – was I going to continue?

Even though they didn’t seem to want anything to do with me…

I just said to Him that I was open to if Jesus wanted to do this within me – I was ambivalent (usually when there’s something in it ‘for me’ I’m always keen and ‘take over’) – and I waited to see what would happen – and then from within came the prayer – the prayer to remove rejection – like tar – from them and to place it on Jesus on the cross – Jesus only does what He sees the Father doing and I saw that I can only do what I see Jesus doing as He is my Head – once I’m in surrender to Him then everything flows – and flow it did in prayer this morning…

I see that when Jesus was on the cross being terrorized by all the demons over the sin that He had been made on our behalf that He kept His Identity, Acceptance and Inheritance as a Son fully in His Mind – He only did on the cross and endured what He’d seen the Father do – and He did this so that I could be saved – if He’d stopped bearing my sin then I wouldn’t now be forgiven – this freed me – this understanding of His Love – to intercede for these three ones who had been rejecting me…

The Love which He showed for me was real – He really got underneath – He has told me that these three ones will make it – they will fulfil their purpose in God…

He has a plan for their lives and He will fulfil it – the breadth or length of their lives may vary – will vary – but the substance – His Purpose – will be sure…

I needed to know that – practically – to stop me being in a state of flux but I enjoyed the state of flux and wasn’t begging for it to be removed…

An amazing lesson for me…

His Love – and forgiveness – really does conquer…

And it stops us worshipping people – I know the gift which the Lord has placed on these three’s life and it is the same and it is powerful – but this is not the point – it is His Love shining through which is the point – He really never does give up on His own…

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 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
