EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
This month I had the ability to visit the mountains of Tennessee. I had the privilege to pray on the back balcony of Reinhard Bonnke’s log home where this “legacy of a Soul Winner”, famous evangelist and Author to millions and millions of people, prayed.
I was captivated by God’s splendor and beauty in the awe-inspiring view of His creation. I cried, I prayed. There was no hiding from the Spirit of God in that place. I was captivated with majestic inspiration through the vast ranges of earth’s top peaks and its low valleys. The magnificent certainty of Who God is and what He created was before my eyes.
As for Reinhard Bonnke, he was a masterpiece creation himself, a worldwide evangelist, Author, and tremendous stature of faith. Knowing a man of God who directed millions to the cross of Christ through his worldwide dedicated calling had shared time with God there, right in that place of space. ( He passed a little over a year ago)
It just brought me into a stillness I can hardly describe. A moment in time that stood still for me. The photo below is where I sat at his home.
“Where can I go from Your Spirit?… if I go to the heavens, You are there. If I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.” (Psalm 139:7-10)
There is something about a place of peace that brings about being raw and honest and also vulnerable and it sets the table for the Spirit of God to move in a powerful way.
Alone in the quietness of that mountain, I prayed. It will never leave my heart.
Could you find a place that brings peace to your Spirit and just sit and rest there for a bit? I encourage you to try. See what God speaks in that moment of stillness.
