Sunday was another precious time in worshipping God. What a sweet presence it was from the very beginning.
Even though many were away on holidays or visiting ‘River Camp’ there was a ‘hungry remnant’ gathering in GVC for worship. Becks and Colin led the worship with great sensitivity for almost an hour; the sounds of heaven permeating the room. Wes preached from the story of Lazarus, likening Jesus’s deliberate delayed response to times when God doesn’t answer our prayers in the timing or way we would sometimes demand. Sometimes we can blame Him for situations which we perceive have gone wrong, but He desires to set things up for His glory to be known.
Most of the congregation took ‘soaking’ time at the end of the meeting, allowing the Holy Spirit to minister to them in areas of disappointment in prayer. How wonderful that God continues to reveal Himself to us in such gentle and sweet ways. How good He is in every way. How much He truly loves us.
