I think everyone should go read Mike Bickle’s dream on Rev 12. Go on, read it. I’ll wait.
This has hit me hard – if the leadership of a day and night continuous prayer movement is not ready for the coming trials, what about those of us just struggling to “get in the game” on a Wednesday evening? It is sobering to realize that I am not ready. I can look to my actions just today – my selfishness, my anger, my hardness of heart – and see clearly that there is quite a lot of soul and precious little spirit in my day-to-day walk.
The other thing that struck me from the dream is that Bickle says the church needs to be moving in power. I agree wholeheartedly. I am very frustrated at attending prayer meetings and seeing people walk away still suffering. Interestingly enough, I think that when I see a change in my life as described in the previous paragraph, then I’ll see a change in the prayer meetings I attend.
How glorious will it be to see the church rise up in power and authority? How glorious to see that happen today?
