I know that I have been living because I am breathing. I have a heartbeat. I have experiences. I have a story.
However, God’s command over my life today was, “Come Alive!”
There is a part of me deep inside that has been sleeping for all these years. There is a roaring lion inside of me waiting to be let loose. I want to open the doors.
Today there were prophecies spoken over me that answered prayers that I have been praying. God showed me the grand contrast between the person I used to be and the person that I am becoming right now, and the only thing that I could do was give Him thanks.
I want to be like Daniel. I want to be powerful in prayer. I want to be close to God’s heart. Most of all, I want to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit. I want to speak with His authority. I want the passion that God has placed in my heart to radiate from me all the time.
I heard the song “Glorious Ruins” this morning for the first time. Some of the lyrics are:
I’ll walk through the fire
With my head lifted high
And my spirit revived in Your story
And I’ll look to the cross
As my failure is lost
In the light of Your glorious grace
Let the ruins come to life
In the beauty of Your Name
Rising up from the ashes
God forever You reign
All for Your glory, God. Today I gave You my shame, my time, and my obedience. There is no longer anything holding me back. The door is standing wide open. Lord, call Your lion forth.
