Missio Lux has been enjoying the favor of God upon us. We are able to move in freedom, and the Lord is blessing us with depth of relationship with himself, as well as provision in finances.
We decided to intently focus on God's blessing on our trip to the Learning Community trip. We immediately began to see them. Our flights were all on time and very comfortable (well, as comfortable as a flight can be these days!). We got an upgrade on our car rental. We were given a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo on the beach for cheaper than our usual average accomodations away from the beach.
We also got some surprises! Healing Prayer MC started a 30 day prayer and fast for an increase of kingdom breakthrough amongst us, and on the first day, a woman from Missio Lux was out walking and saw an opening in the clouds in the shape of a dove. Mark 1 tells us that the heavens ripped open when the kingdom came to earth and lighted on Jesus like a dove...and this is what she saw in the clouds.....and snapped a picture of!
About an hour after I got her text, two of our Learning Community team members saw something on our white table at once. It was a heart shaped stone that looks like a diamond. We don't know if it is real or not, but the presence of a heart shape stone was incredibly encouraging to us.
The most significant sign of God's pleasure with us was when we were ready to start our plan for our future goals and objectives for the next six months. We decided to start our time with worship and prayer before we started on the nitty gritty details. We began to worship and the presence of the Lord was so strong that we literally couldn't, or didn't want to stop. We ended up finishing two hours after we started. It's an experience that we are not likely to forget anytime soon.
As a loving Father, I believe God wants to bless his children, just as we like to bless our children. Look up and look out for where God is showing you his pleasure with you!
