{ Day 345 }

by | Dec 11, 2011 | Prayer & Devotion

You did not trust in the Lord your God, who went ahead of you on your journey, in fire by night and in a cloud by day, to search out places for you to camp and to show you the way you should go. —Deuteronomy 1:32-33

The church must discern the current move of the Spirit. Just as the children of Israel followed the cloud through the wilderness, the church needs to move when the Holy Spirit says to move. The relationship that exists between the church and the Holy Spirit is not static. The Spirit is forever doing a new thing with the church as a whole and, separately, with each congregation. The Ten Commandments given on Sinai are forever true and unchangeable, but the people of Israel were changing locations constantly as they moved around in the wilderness. The kind of moving I am referring to is the changing emphasis placed on elements of truth, structure, and strategy. The greatest expression of the church as a prophetic community is in those congregations or denominations that move on with the cloud but carry with them all the wisdom, experience, and maturity of their history.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Spirit, may I never be so content with my spiritual life that I fail to see the moment-by-moment, day-by-day ways that You are moving and revealing Yourself to Your people. Do a new thing in my heart, in my church, and in Your world.

We are moving around within the boundaries
of the unchangeable truth of God’s Word.
