REVIVE YOUR APPETITE FOR HIS PRESENCE.

main13

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.


Have you ever been in a place where things just don’t seem to be moving? No matter what you do, you seem to be stuck in the same cycle of same old, same old.  You can only revive something that once lived or was alive. There may be times when you feel like you have lost connection with the Lord; having a hard time discovering that intimate place with Him. There are a few things that you can do to help get things back on track.

The first thing you can do to get yourself “tuned in” to God’s presence is to draw close to Him and He will draw close to you; and a great place to do this is in corporate/ private worship.

1. The Absence of Something

Psalm 35:13 …I humbled myself with fasting; and my prayer would return to my own heart.


It’s amazing how we will not search for something until we are aware of the absence of something.  Sometimes we just need to re-establish communication.
Fasting may be a dirty word to some, but when your circumstances are desperate, it calls for some desperate action.  Decide to choose to reconnect with God by withholding a meal or two or even a day of food, and take that time to spend with God.  It may not take all that much fasting to bring you into a place of sensitivity to His presence. Sometimes we just get in a pattern of eating just for the sake of eating. Breaking that pattern to focus on the Lord can be just the thing you need to help give you a breakthrough in His presence. It may just be one meal, or a day (see Mark 2:20). The key here is that you realize that it is not just the absence of food but the desire to be with God that will cause things to shift. Let your spirit awaken. Make a decision to quieten your spirit…

Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the inner depths of his heart.

2. Create an Atmosphere

When you skip your meal(s), make sure to incorporate times of worship, vocalizing your love for God. There is nothing more powerful than creating an atmosphere that exemplifies “Heaven on earth.” Find a room in your house, and begin soaking in God’s presence; take time to create that heavenly atmosphere. Go buy a CD that has real worship on it, I suggest something by Terry Macalmon, someone who knows how to create an atmosphere of worship, and you get drawn in as you worship.

When we welcome the Holy Spirit to fill our house, He comes and washes us, cleansing all of the spiritual debris away. When we make the Lord our dwelling place, we will create an atmosphere in every aspect of our lives where He is welcome. When He is our dwelling place, He makes His home with us.
Sometimes we are just so busy with the work of the Lord, that we forget it’s about the Lord of the work, I call it the Martha – Mary syndrome….

Psalm 91:9-10 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.


3. Read, Write, Meditate

While you are creating this atmosphere, try to make a comfortable place for yourself. Get your Bible. Remove all your preconceived thoughts. Then ask the Holy Spirit to show you what topic, word, Scripture, or book He would have you read and meditate on. Grab your pen and paper and be ready for the Lord to speak to you.
Ask God to give you His heart, wisdom, revelation, and understanding.


Be open to whatever God would show you. It may be something that is completely practical, an inspiring idea, or just a thought. Sometimes He will give us things that we would think, “Oh, this is not spiritual.” But in reality it is, because He is speaking it to you.

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.


We need to remember that God created all things. He is the most creative Person. Creative ideas will come when you get in contact with the Creator. Get tapped into the creative nature of God. Allow His Spirit to “inspire you.” There will be some things you will need to write down for later, things to do, etc. Write them down and come back to them after a time so that you can rest and focus in His presence.

Take time to “receive” what He wants to give to you.
Unless we receive from Him, we have nothing to give.
What the Father does IN you is what He can do THROUGH you.  He is a jealous God, we need to take time to be with Him in intimacy, we need to create an atmosphere that is conducive for the “reign” of the Holy Spirit to flow

4.  The Blood, The Bread and The Oil.

{Download Bishop and my teaching over the last three weeks on the above subject “THE MEAL THAT HEALS & COMMUNION” and begin to apply it in your daily life.}

We do not put our faith in these elements but we certainly put our faith in what they represent the very LIFE OF CHRIST which we partake of to enter into ABUNDANT LIFE OR A HIGHER FORM OF LIFE.

Pyramid of life (like a food pyramid)

1. Plant Life: Lowest form – plant life – vegetation, we don’t have much respect for that kind of life we just eat it.

2. Insect and Animal Life: Next level of life – insect and animal life – we also have no respect for this form of life, we will kill a cockroach in a second and not even go to jail for it…..deep down in our hearts we do not compare animal life to human life.

3. Human Life: The next stage of life is human life, it is so sacred, it is so precious that you cannot destroy it, if you kill or stop the life of another human being you will be tried in court and your life may be taken away for you.

BUT YOU KNOW SOMETHING…. JESUS DID NOT COME TO GIVE US HUMAN LIFE……

When Jesus stood before the Jewish people and said “I have come to give you life and life more abundantly”  He was speaking to people who were alive with a heartbeat.

4. Highest Form of Life: He was not talking about human life, He was talking about the highest form of life, it is called “Zoe” – Greek = God’s life, the life that God lives by; eternal life.

If you ask people what eternal life is, they will say: “You live forever” well those in hell are also living forever….

So obviously this is more than that; it is a quality of life, that God himself possesses that Jesus came to give you.

It’s a SUPER HUMAN LIFE, how many would like more of that life?

Life, and life MORE ABUNDANTLY

DEUT 30:19

I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;”

God is talking to the nation of Israel……

I set before you life and death, blessing and curse, BUT IN CASE YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO CHOOSE, I RECOMMEND LIFE

God wants His people to come to LIFE

We are not being offered 4 things here. But only 2

JESUS CAME TO GIVE US LIFE AND LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY – JOHN 10:10

God is not behind your trouble, He is your answer

Don’t run away from God, run to God, the enemy wants to steal and kill you and even after he has done that he wants to destroy your testimony.

But Jesus said He wants you to have life and life more abundantly

So life can be measured, because for Jesus to say “more abundantly” show clearly the amount of life you have or are enjoying can be measured.

CHOOSE LIFE……… this will be very clear and show you how to partake of this LIFE through the elements of bread, wine and oil.

I encourage you to send me your testimonies and they are rolling in at a steady rate, especially of instant healing.

HUNGER AND THIRST for righteousness!!

BURN FOR HIM!
