Soaring High with Him
Hide me now under Your wings,
Cover me, within Your mighty hand
When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with You, above the storm
Father, You are King over the flood
I will be still and know You are God
Find rest my soul, In Christ alone
Know His power, In quietness and trust
Had our CG last night, I was asked to share the Word with the cell. The text was taken from Matt 4:12-25, message was on the ministry of Jesus, the call for the ministry (calling of the first disciples), and elements of the ministry.
As I was preparing, God has reminded me on my first encounter with Him. The time I first surrendered my life to Him, the first time experienced Him in my life. I was indeed in awe. Having the tot that I have forgotten this significant event in my life. Have I not treasure it? Yet loosing it? Not to share my battles & struggles, but again, it refreshes the memories.
Last night, I challenged the CG as how God spoke to me. We emphasized more on the ‘calling for the ministry’ where we channeled the calling to the calling of salvation in our lives. The first encounter with Christ.,. Although not all shared, not all can ‘remember’ that moment (seeing some struggling faces, hehe), in fact, God has actually challenged us to always remember D-day.
The above song came right into my mind, when we were talking about the struggles of lives. The decisions we are to make for the next path of our lives. I strongly believed that the song has actually ministered to us. when the oceans rise and thunders roar (sounds so scary, helpless, hopeless, depressing), I will soar with You above the storm (a step of faith to ‘radical’ obedient? To trust Him and sail with Him), Father, You are King over the flood (a declaration to the Almighty God), I will be still and know You are God (again another decision and acknowledgement towards the Creator, the Saviour)
Hence, we ended our sharing by encouraging one another to always always remember our first encounter with Christ. Which will indeed encourage us, strengthen us and renew our first love with Christ. It is just like whenever we face challenges in life, we should stop and look back to our past days, and all we see in our yesterdays is the Glory of God, then, there is nothing else hinders us to move on with Him. Soaring high with Him.
So my dear frens, forget anything else, remember your first encounter with Christ. Your first call. Your first love. And move on with a smile..
