sun“He must increase, but I must decrease. [He must grow more prominent; I must grow less so.]” (John 3:30, AMP)

This song has been running through my mind for about a week now. I posted just the song a few days ago on my page. I love this version as it has a more prophetic sound to it. This song is my prayer for me and for all of you. That we would be at the point of wanting more of God and less of ourselves. That may mean something different to each of you, but to me, it means more of what God wants and less of what I want.

I’ve said this not long ago and I will say it again. I truly believe we are in the midst of a last day’s revival. It may not be at the magnitude that it’s going to be at but I believe we are in it. We aren’t getting ready for it, it’s here, now. Although I believe there will always be denominational walls to some degree, I see denominational walls starting to come down. I see those that are hungering for more of God and they really don’t care whether you’re Methodist, Baptist, Pentecostal, Wesleyan, Catholic, or you don’t really know what you are. I see God setting a fire deep within the souls of His people. That fire is rekindling old gifts and callings. It’s setting things on fire again that have lost fire. You’re going to find yourself desiring things of God that you haven’t desired in awhile. You’re going to find passions that you didn’t realize you had. We will each operate in specific callings, things that are our specialty but God is putting a desire in each one of us that says, whatever needs to be done we will do. It’s kind of like a job description that gives you specific responsibilities and then at the end it says, “And whatever else is required.” God’s calling you to step into your gifting, operate in them, and do whatever else is required in order to see the Kingdom advanced.

More of You, less of me.
