Praise the Lord for His speaking during the fall university conference. I realized that God has a great need in this age. He needs a dispensational instrument – that is, a group of overcomers, some who are willing to pay the price to end this age and to bring in the kingdom of God. He does not need an individual overcomer but He needs a group of overcomers – the corporate man to cooperate with Him to turn the age.
To cooperate with Him, we need to pray for His need. The Lord has shined on me that I only pray for my own need, and not for God’s need. I pray for my studies, my family and my future. God spoke to me that I need to pray for His need. Our prayer will advance God’s move on the earth and will bring in the kingdom. God will only move whenever we move – when we pray!
Recovering our First Love for the Lord
To be an overcomer we need to recover the first love toward the Lord. Nothing else but love can keep us in a proper relationship with the Lord. Oh Lord, forgive me for losing my first love toward You!
The leaving of first love is the reason for the degradation of church throughout the ages. I realized that I need to recover the first love toward the Lord in order to cooperate with His move. I need to give Him the preeminence in great things as well as in small things.
Christ is in us as the Overcoming Life
I also enjoyed Galatians 2:20 – “no longer I… but Christ”. We should realize that we have been crucified with Christ. It is now the overcoming life – Christ – who lives in us. Although we can’t overcome by ourselves, the Christ who is in us can overcome everything!
To experience the overcoming life, we need to “realize”, to “give up”, to “praise” and to “believe”. I enjoyed that that we need to praise the Lord that we are not able to make it. We need to praise the Lord for our failure. Whenever I failed, I used to be disappointed or blame someone else for the failure. But the Lord told me that I need to praise Him for these failures, and then go on to experience Him as the overcoming life.
