Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false.
Lately I’ve been sort of absent from the online world. That’s because God is doing some major work in our lives. We are attempting to initiate a revival from right here in our homes.
We have gone back to our home church. We are ridding our home of impure things and at times burning things that we believe influenced us so negatively that we don’t want anyone else to have to deal with it. We are also consecrating our home to Him. We are filing ourselves with His Word and walking towards His purpose for our lives.
It all started with prayer:
God change me. Use me. I may not immediately like what you have in mind but I give you permission to change my heart.
Can I tell you that He did?
In the beginning this is how I felt: I don’t like blogging less. I don’t like devoting all of my time to things that don’t satisfy my flesh. I don’t like not seeing immediate results. I don’t like the not knowing.
Now I see so much fruit from our obedience that I can’t stop chasing after what He wants for us. Previously I prayed for God to change me and use me but in my heart it was conditioned with a clause: He had to make His will fit my lifestyle.
God isn’t into lifestyles. He is into matters of the heart. Those are the things that bring Him glory. Not the kind of car I drive or how many TVs I have.
There has been such a dramatic change in my life that I just had to share it. While we haven’t completely cleaned out our home yet I can tell you that the areas that were thoroughly cleaned, anointed, and prayed through carry a tangible presence of God.
I know that may scare some people off but I am not sure why it does. The spiritual world existed long before the physical world. I am finally coming to a place where I can co-exist in both. No more teetering back and forth. I want clean hands and a pure heart. I want to walk in His presence every day. How about you?
