Living The Difference Experience
One thing that I always didn’t want to accept (really) is that I couldn’t hear God’s voice, audibly… I wanted Him to talk to me out front and in my face so I will know it is definitely Him.
God speaks to different people in different manner and He doesn’t speak to me audibly, but He STILL SPEAKS! He is my shepherd and I am His sheep; I know His voice and He speaks in a still small one. =)
He told me, the reason why I couldn’t tell for sure that it is Him is because I haven’t been spending time in prayer; spending time with Him… I could not recognise His voice because there was doubt.
Living The Difference Camp was a different prayer experience for me. An extremely exciting one! And I did not even realise that God was taking me on such a journey till I come to the very last service at camp! He led me to pray a prayer for myself that I’ve never before, in fact, I was pleasantly surprised (amidst all my sobs and crying) by what I prayed on 3rd day’s morning prayer. It felt like I was prophesying to myself sort of, the words just came without much thought and what I usually prayed for people, for the first time I prayed for myself! Through that prayer, God also revealed things in my heart that I did not explicitly acknowledge and from there I knew what I got to give up to Him. (AWESOME)
Praying for others was different as well. Felt the prompting to go pray for a certain someone, didn’t know what to pray! Went ahead still, but with some hesitation at the start… Asked God to put words in my mouth, words came without me thinking and I know many times the person did felt a witness in her spirit. For some, I ran out of words, but I didn’t felt to go so I stayed (which is the first time i did this!), and more words came. (AWESOME X2) =O
It is addictive to be used by God! (AWESOME X3) =O
And through all these, I was actually learning to recognise His voice! Following, as He leads me. (AWESOME X4) =O
God gave me a promise, which I won’t elaborate here but I shall do my part to see it come to pass!
Brother Wright talked about David - the day David was anointed to be king by Samuel and the day David actually became king was several years, but David endured through the process God brought him through because he remembered that particular day when he was anointed. And Brother Wright described: how David remembered the oil that trickled down his face; the fragrance of the oil that permeated the room…
And for the last service, they were going to seal what we have received from God by anointing us with oil. I printed the experience in my mind like I was a computer recording something. With my eyes closed, (amidst all my sobs and crying) I ‘recorded’ the feeling in my mind as the oil trickled down my forehead, several deep breaths I took so I remembered the smell of that olive oil that filled the altar that day…
Thank you God. I LOVE adventures and You are taking me on the greatest adventure ever.
