Tuesday 3.12.19, Be the move of God!

Lately we have been singing the song “this is a move” in the International church we attend here in Hämeenlinna (Finland). It is a beautiful song. I’m playing the drums so it is very hard for me to follow the lyrics projected on the wall. Anyway, it is a “sing along” song from Bethel. When returning home the chorus still resonated in my ears. If you don’t know the song, on the end of the post I’ll put the lyrics.

I sang, “Lord, we need a move, Lord we…” Suddenly I realised something. “WE ARE (or can be) Gods move“. God, use me! Let me be your move for someone! This song puts the responsibility to move on God! God made his move already! Man disobeyed God (bad move of man), so God send his son to restore what man had broken (Gods move). Now it’s again our turn to move by repenting from our sins, washing away of our sins by baptism in water (infant baptism is not valid as infants don’t even understand the concept sin) and baptism in Holy Spirit to get power from up high! This is something we all have to do. God is patiently waiting on us to do this. He did all He had to do.

As we are the body of Christ I believe we can also be a move of God! We are his hands and feet, so we should feed the hungry, clothe the naked, care for the sick, be kind to strangers, serve other believers humbly, show hospitality to strangers, etc… Comparing “singing to God” as a move of God reminds me on our trip to India where there was one church were they were casting out demons by singing over the people who were possessed by them. This is clearly not how bible teaches it should be done!

So today I was going through the shopping mall with Elias. Everyone seemed to be very busy and not open or free for a short conversation. So I returned and on my way back home (but still in the shopping mall) I spotted a girl who was kind of resting with her back against a wall. I noticed that she didn’t look like being busy with something so I started a conversation with her.

It seemed that she had tooth ache which went away after my second prayer for her. She said that she didn’t feel the pain anymore but wasn’t sure if it would last. I asked if she had more time and if I could share the gospel over a table with her (for a second I forgot that I had my 1-y old Elias with me in the stroller 🙂 but she declined, saying that she was planning to go to the pharmacy. I gave her my contact card and told her that she really needed to cheque some links! “You know, I care for you!” is what I told her. I thanked her for the nice conversation and proceeded my way back home.

Such a nice girl, open, calm and very respectful in her communication. I hope she looks to at least the documentary and that the Holy Spirit will show her the importance of Jesus dying for her on the cross. It can mean a difference off the place were she’ll spend her eternal destination.

Happy and encouraged I could go home! It is so nice to know that I just was part of Gods move! Hallelujah!

Lyrics of the song; (I don’t agree with! Even dangerous to sing because those Lyrics keep being in your head! “Lord, we need a move!”. Makes us very lazy believers! We can be God’s move towards someone, not by singing but by “stepping out of the boat”.

Verse 1

Mountains are still being moved

Strongholds are still being loosed

God we believe it

Yes we can see that

Wonders are still what You do

Chorus

We are here for You

Come and do what You do

We are here for You

Come and do what You do

Set our hearts on You

Come and do what You do

‘Cause we need a move

We need a move

Verse 2

Bodies are still being raised

Giants are still being slayed

God we believe it

And yes we can see that

Wonders are still what You do

Bridge

Miracles happen when You move

Healing is coming in this room

Miracles happen when You move

Heaven is coming

Chorus 2

This is a move

This is a move

We are here for You

Come and do what You do

We are here for You

Come and do what You do

We set our hearts on You

Come and do what You do

This is a move

This is a move

This is a move

This is a move
