3. Eyes Fixed – Spark Prayer Journey

Posted by rickhill on July 31, 2007

At times it seems strange when people from the outside stand back and throw accusations at us. We’re baffled by the conclusions people have drawn on the run up to Spark 07 this summer. But we take great hope and comfort in the words, life and death of Jesus Christ.

“Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
Jesus in Matthew 5:10-12

Jesus – slandered, abused, mistreated, misrepresented and laughed at when He claimed to be the Son of God. But in the face of it all, Jesus knew His purpose and His calling, and He kept going, often without even a response.

These are potentially life changing days that we are walking in…and while man, and the enemy will obviously want to disrupt or attack, we must continue following the Voice that guides. Words have caused so much hurt and division in the past. It’s time now to let our actions speak louder than our words. And so having outlined the vision and plans for Spark 07 time and time again over the past 12 months, we’ll just let any false accusations lie, and not respond to criticism. We will allow ourselves to be judged by the fruit of Spark 07, that we pray God will graciously give!!

So today’s prayer for all of us is this:

Father, help us in the midst of everything that goes on around us in our everyday lives to keep our eyes completely fixed upon Jesus. May You guard and protect us from the voices from outside the camp that wish to disrupt and distract us. As Spark 07 draws near, allow us to follow Jesus in all that we do. Amen.
