How You Can Go With the Flow of the Kingdom’s Current

by | Jul 26, 2021 | Greenelines

We all have a tendency to run after new things. Whether it’s a new house, a new car or a new area of ministry, we love to go after the greener grass.

Kisia Coleman , “Dr. Kish,” pastor, leadership expert and podcast host, says new things can be good—but only if they’re of God.

“Sometimes, we’re so busy looking for the new thing, we’re looking for what’s current, and we’re trying to get in a flow, but it’s not the flow that God wants us in, it’s not the current that God wants us in,” she tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “And we want to get in that current that’s the river from the sanctuary of God.”

Coleman says that in a recent prayer, God showed her a current flowing that went straight into a pond, which meant the current stopped altogether.

“And then I heard the words, ‘Dead Sea,’ and I went and looked up the Dead Sea, and I saw that it said it’s a place where you can’t produce life,” Coleman says.

“Sometimes, we’re so busy looking for the new thing, we’re looking for what’s current, and we’re trying to get in a flow, but it’s not the flow that God wants us in,” she adds. “And it’s not the current that God wants us in. And we want to get in that current that’s that river that’s from the sanctuary of God, the one Ezekiel talks about in Ezekiel 47 … that flow comes from the sanctuary.

“There’s a river that you can get in or it’ll keep you current, not current with this culture but what’s current with the kingdom,” Coleman says. “And so it’s good to look for a new thing, but make sure that new thing is the new thing from God.”
