Last Tuesday night, during our livestream, there was such an incredible sense of God’s presence… and everything broke.
It was a great success.
A couple issues with batteries, cables and technical glitches resulted in us stripping back our setup to one camera on a tripod and a feed without lyrics. But, a media team with time on its hands translates to worshippers laid out on the floor and basking in the beauty of Jesus.
Today I’m preparing to brief the team again for tonight’s stream and I’m believing for a Ephesians 5:18 outpouring in our worship. The Amplified version says:
“And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but ever be filled and stimulated with the [Holy] Spirit.”
One Scholar said it like this: “be being filled.”
I was listening to one of my favourite, old school, faith preachers this morning (Keith Moore) and he pointed out that the same believers that were filled with the Holy Spirit on Acts 2 were filled again in Acts 4. Being filled with the Holy Spirit isn’t a one time deal, it’s a lifestyle rooted in dependence on the Father and availability to the Holy Spirit.
I’m really looking forward to tonight, hoping that on the technical side everything goes well; but more than that, that the king shows up. Last week we feasted but still we’re getting hungrier!
The definition of infill (Merriam Webster) is: “material that fills in something (such as a hole or the spaces between a building’s structural members)”. Lord help us to open ourselves wide, that our hearts would become caverns that you might inhabit. Come and fill the cracks that appear in our hearts as we break them over Your feet and anoint You with our perfume. We welcome the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
