Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalms 27:4 (KJV) One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple.
The total sum of your christian life ought to be experiences in God. However, even in those experiences, you have to pick out what is revelation.
This is because even though it is a beautiful thing to see in the spirit, to walk the aisles of heaven, to behold the glassy sea and the throne of God you should not leave out the place of inquiring in His courts.
It is not useful to simply see things in the spirit and not be able to inquire what is necessary for divine purpose on the earth.
For example, God did not take the prophet Isaiah into an experience of the spirit for him to just see the wonders of heaven. He allowed him access to a heavenly meeting to know what God was planning to do on the earth (Isaiah 6).
An experience without the revelation of it will not do much to edify the church or even yourself. God does not expect you to have experiences for the simple purpose of describing them to your listeners. ‘I visited heaven and I saw this and that…I walked into this dimension and saw this and that…’
Why did you see it? What is the revelation of the experience?
Psalms 48:12-13; Walk about Zion, go round about her, tell the towers thereof, mark her bulwarks, consider her palaces that you may tell it to the generation following.
The message for the generation lies in the revelation of those experiences.
FURTHER STUDY: Ephesians 1:17-18, Proverbs 4:7
The total sum of your ministry ought to be experiences in God. Even in those experiences, you have to pick out what is revelation.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the revelation of experiences; for the grace to inquire in your courts; for the wisdom to seek past just what I see but also understanding of the things that I see, hear and feel in the spirit. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
