The Fountain Day 224: Oily Fire

Many times, lately, I have had a vision of my piano…I keep seeing a fire in the bottom belly of the piano…and I saw from above oil pouring out over it…the oil was feeding the fire.

Day after day, I had this same vision. 

Day after day, God was calling me to worship. 

I love worship…but I have been coming out of a strange season…a season that left me wondering if leading worship was my main calling anymore.  The big question in my life, kept swirling around my mind.  I felt the enemy pressing against me and trying to cause me to question myself…causing me to question where my place is to be…causing me to wonder if I was supposed to be transitioning into another form of ministry.

The resounding answer was that worship is my heart.  It’s the pulse of my life.  I hear songs all day long.  Life is a soundtrack to me.  God has placed songs inside of me…songs He longs to hear.  The answer is that when I worship, things change.  Heaven hears.  Angels join the song.  God delights in it.  Worship is in my DNA. 

We are all made to worship.  But some of us are made to lead it. 

Basically, I’ve been in a season of coming to terms with who I am created to be and allowing God to move me forward in that place. 

I am a voice.  I didn’t ask to be…He told me I was. 

When I operate in the anointing that He’s placed on my life, then it releases a heavenly oil on my life and stokes the fire in my soul. 

When you find your sweet spot, you too will be releasing oil from heaven and stoking the fires of the Spirit…and this is exactly what the world needs right now. 

Believers on fire. 

I encourage you to take time over the next few days or even weeks and press into God’s heart asking Him to reveal to you what you are created to do.  What is the area He’s given you a voice to contribute?  Where does He want your focus to lie?  Then simply say, “Yes”…He’ll work out the details as you go, but your initial agreement is step one.

To humans belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue.  All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the Lord.  Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.  The Lord works out everything to its proper end- even the wicked for a day of disaster.  The Lord detests all the proud of heart.  Be sure of this:  They will not go unpunished.  Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided.  When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way, He causes their enemies to make peace with them.  Proverbs 16:1-7
