Transition…

The Lord has just told me to blog on my life…

To tell it as it is…

Now is a time of transition for me…

He has been pulling up the roots which I have in my career, in my church involvement, the involvement in a prayer group in our city, the involvement which I had with another Christian blog – a long involvement – and He has been pulling up these roots since mid-July last year…

He has basically cut them all now…

He’s left me in a position where they’ve been cut and I know in my heart they have been cut…

It is a very vulnerable position which He has led me into…

I have no roots left, so to speak, to my city – where I was born – and He has told me that I will be going to another city in another country on the other side of the world…

I feel like He has also cut the family ties which I have in this city…

I am just waiting for Him to speak and set in motion the chain of events which will ‘turn the ship’ so to speak to make all these things which He has told me will happen, happen…

It’s a sad time to let things go – a career is a hard thing to let go…

But I have…

All the other things are hard things to let go – but I have…

He has loosened them from me…

It’s been natural but there’s still sadness and pain – leaving people behind who you’ve worked with in whatever sphere is hard and there are emotions involved – He has been taking me through these…

One thing I know – He is going to act – all these things He’s been speaking to me and all these deaths I’ve been dying and the ‘letting goes’ which He’s been preparing me for are all coming together for this imminent move – whenever that is to Him…

It is the next thing on His agenda for me…

Change, transition…

Not an easy place but He carries us and He prepares us in advance to handle the change…

We can trust Him to lead us in advance preparing us for this transition and giving us motivational vision and guidance as to what to do when we get to the next destination…

I am quietly confident about this – this is what makes me sure it is Him calling me – for I feel His ‘steely’ determination to get the job done in our (my) new location when He gets us (me) there…

I know He will get us (me) there and establish me in what He has for me to do although right now (and for all time) that will be impossible for me (under my own steam) to complete…

The vision is too big…

And yet I am so passionate about that vision…

So passionate and so released now to pursue it…

As He comes underneath me to lift me up on His currents like eagles to get me there in His Presence…

Impossible dreams are possible to God – don’t be scared of success (as I heard today at our work conference from a leadership mentor) – don’t be scared of success…

God wants us to succeed in what He puts before us for in that we are seeing Him – we are knowing God…

He puts everything which He has planned for us within our grasp as we surrender our everything to Him…

Who will come, who will not…

We are not responsible for others unless He makes us personally responsible and then that burden is light…

Otherwise we are free to call all and get on and serve God in our own hearts – the buck stops with us…

And so since July 2013 I have been in transition…

My heart is in Jerusalem, Israel – this is where my heart is – He did it – He shifted my focus and now He wants me to go – to wait for Him but to go – when He arranges the circumstances – to go…

I am being honest, I am sharing honestly – this is what He’s asked me to do…

Love you,

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
