Whatever Lord! Whatever!

Guest post by Passionate Christ Follower…

I find myself reading this completely overwhelmed by the confirmation of the Holy Spirit. I am a worship leader of an army chapel. God lead me here 2 years ago when I was at a different point of my walk.

Recently I have been overwhelmed with the truth of where God is calling His Church. A new level of following Him. He is teaching me what all those church terms I’ve learned over the years actually mean. Like dying to myself, taking up my cross, being His hands and feet (nailed to the cross immobile in my flesh). I am learning what it means to be a crucified one. Crucified with Christ. Seperated from my desires, my will, my reasoning.

What it is to not only be filled with the Spirit, but to be lead by the Spirit. Not being able to accomplish anything in my own strength or striving, but to surrender myslf to Him and bind myself to His will.

In any church, but especially one run by the government, there are many rules and restrictions. I don’t know how much longer God will allow me stay under this. I find myself longing to allow God to worship through me and honestly love being a worship leader. But, there is an oppresion of the fear of man and preformance that I also find myself struggling against every Sunday. Is the guitar too loud, am I singing songs people like, is the sound right, will the chaplain be pleased?

Lord, save me. I don’t want to idolize worship so much that I refuse to let you take me out of this situaition if it is Your will. Help me to trust that Your ways are higher than mine. Help me not to depend on my paycheck.

Lord I want to trust in You. If you’re calling me out Lord God, show me. In worship, sing through me and Lord if you’re willing let your Spirit fall and sweep through that place drawing the hearts of the people You are calling out. Give ears to those who will hear. God give me the grace to receive rejection as they are not rejecting me but Jesus in me.

Whatever Lord, whatever!!

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. I am encouraged by your email. Thank you.

    It seems God is doing a Fresh work in the hearts and lives of many of His people. I have been a believer for 50 years and have not ever purposely run from God. There have been many times I didn’t seek God as I should. But in my life, I have never seen God or felt His presence as I do today. I can’t explain it. There is just something different happening. It seems God has touched you also.

    There is a responsibility that comes with revelation. It usually invokes action. I think each of us will find ourselves humbly on our face before God, asking what is required. God will smile and we will do according to His will and purpose and by His provision.

    God bless you in your walk or run as the case may be.

    I’d like to post this on my blog with your permission. I will remove your name unless you tell me otherwise. I think it important to pick your battles at God’s time and place.

    God bless,
    Your servant in Christ,
    archie

  2. God is all knowing and all powerful. He will never leave you or forsake you. Keep on walking close to Him. He has all the answers. I have been walking with Him 72 years – the way has not always been easy, but He has never failed me. My husband (who is now with the Lord) and I raised 3 children – each of them belong to our Lord. Thank God for young men who seek God’s will in their lives. The times ahead will not be easy for any of us.

    Come Lord Jesus.

  3. My God is so good! As I stumbled on this, tears of joy filled my eyes. She is a woman after God’s heart, carrying out the destiny God had planned for her. My mother’s heart is so blessed as I see her draw so near to our Lord. No matter where our journey begins if we passionately seek Him we will be found right in the middle of HIS WILL!

    I like this: “Whatever, Lord, whatever!!”

    We need to have that – the ability to die to our own desires.

    “Lord I want to trust in You. If you’re calling me out Lord God, show me. In worship, sing through me and Lord if you’re willing let your Spirit fall and sweep through that place drawing the hearts of the people You are calling out. Give ears to those who will hear. God give me the grace to receive rejection as they are not rejecting me but Jesus in me.”

    Let us all worship – and if GOD decides to do something awe inspiring… then he’s sovereign.

    Help us ALL to trust you, God!

    Awesome post!
