A HOUSE OF INFLUENCE no 4

This is the final in a series on 'A House of Influence.'

In my devotion today, I read Psalm 27, and was again insired by the words of David:

v4 one thing I have desired of the Lord, and that I will seek; that I may dweal in the House of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple.





9. IT IS A HOUSE OF THE ANOINTING
V17 I will prepare a lamp for my anointed.


The anointing of the Holy Spirit, takes us from the natural into the supernatural realm of God. Jesus was the lamp mentioned in this scripture and His example was of a life empowered by the Holy Spirit’s anointing. Wherever He went, the miraculous power of God’s anointing was manifest with signs, wonders, and miracles. Churches of influence receive the anointed power of the Holy Spirit to bring miraculous change.


10. IT IS A HOUSE WHERE JESUS CHRIST IS GLORIFIED.
V18 upon Himself his glory shall flourish


In Isaiah Chapter 60, Isaiah challenges God’s people, “to arise, shine for the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” The church is called to carry the glory of God to broken humanity and make known the wonderful plan of God’s redemption and saving grace. Churches of influence carry with confidence God’s glory because they are committed to making a difference.
Join with me, and let’s build ‘Christ Centred Churches’ throughout the nations of the world that bring change to the world.
