My pleasure…

My pleasure is experiencing Jesus living through my soul…

I had just gotten back from one of my weekday runs and was getting ready for the shower when this thought started to form as words in my mind…

Back in March 2010, the Lord whispered these words to me, “You have not been trusting Me for your pleasure”….

Those words broke me, what He said so non-condemningly to me was the absolute truth but His words came to me in absolute heartfelt sincerity filled with genuineness and love (there was absolutely no pressure put on me and I felt His protection around me – like He really cared)  – I love the way the Lord gets through to us…

I had been thinking about those words before my run tonight and when I got back I got these new words which really answered everything for me…

Even if I’m drowning in lava or being eaten by piranhas or any other tragic situation, whether I’m blind or deaf or unable to verbally communicate (mute), whether I’m able to relate to any other person or not, whether I have a job, a house, a car, a place to sleep, whether I have food to eat or pineapple juice to drink – nothing can change my pleasure…

Experiencing Jesus living through my soul is something which I can experience every moment of every day and I don’t have to try and stay up late to squeeze in more time with Jesus because, “He gives to His beloved sleep” as the scripture tells us, so I can rest in Him and let Him do the living through me…

I’m just seeing this tonight, I’ve definitely had other pleasures but I believe I’ve now seen the way forward…

Thank You Lord… 🙂

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
