Convergence and Restoration in 2008

02 Jan

“Christianity must evoke from the believer the same response it drew from the first disciples: a passionate desire to obey God – a willingly entered-into discipline. That is the beginning of true discipleship. That is the beginning of loving God”

“Now the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will personally RESTORE, establish, strengthen, and support you after you have suffered a little. To Him be the dominion forever. Amen.  (1 Peter 5:10-11)

In what areas of your life do you need restoration?
How might Life Focus coaching help in that process?

Yesterday morning I completed and posted my devotional titled “New Beginnings in 2008″ shortly after 9 AM. In less than an hour, I had confirmation from the Holy Spirit that  two key words for 2008 are convergence and restoration. Here is what Virginia Morton, the quarterback for our Pray Culpeper team, shared in her email to me:

Dear Randy,

I was just out walking and praying, and came inside to discover your devotional. Bingo! I’ve been seeking the Lord’s word for 2008. Just before Christmas I was walking on a clear day and jet trails were all across the sky. Normally they run parallel. But that day two bold steams of white converged over my head. It was in the secluded spot where I hear the Lord most clearly. I knew this was a message of convergence. I kept studying the sky and I counted at least 8 convergences of these jet trails, which is very unusual. Therefore I felt convergence was the key word for 2008.

But I’ve also been hearing restoration a lot. This morning I was reading my Bible and the passage that jumped out for me was:

“Now the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will personally RESTORE, establish, strengthen, and support you after you have suffered a little. To Him be the dominion forever. Amen.  (1 Peter 5:10-11)

Therefore I feel my two key words for 2008 are convergence and restoration. Then God confirmed it by giving you the same words! His wisdom is infinite and all glory to Him! Perhaps He is telling us that through convergence He will restore that which the enemy has stolen.

Thank you for your support and blessing for Sam Reeves (Operation Rescue Liberia). He is so excited at what the Lord is doing.

Prayer Power
Heavenly Father, I praise You as the God of restoration. I gladly submit my plans and goals to You this year and ask You to restore all that has been lost. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in my life, my family, my home, my work, my ministry, and in Culpeper. Raise a new standard of excellence and obedience to change the world. Thank You Jesus. Amen and hallelujah!
