I am longing for a God invasion. I want Him to invade every part of my life and fill up every empty cell that needs His presence. Our lives have compartments or departments and we can either fill them with God or fill them with the world. If our lives were a big department store, how many stores would have Jesus on the front door? How many windows would display His love? Would people window shop and realize that what we had to offer was all about God? Would they walk by and not notice the windows because they were empty? I want every room and every department in my life to be vibrant with God’s presence. It’s a work in progress but I believe it is worth spending time exploring. How much space are we giving to the Lord? We should let Him occupy all the spaces. He should be the One leading a spiritual revolution in our lives and not the world.
Have you ever done an inventory of all the departments in your life to see what they truly look like? Have you ever taken a deep look into the mirror of your life to see what everything looks like? We are rushing all the time. We don’t take the time to stop and ponder. We don’t take the time to stop and meditate on the Word or on the world. What do I mean by mediate on the world? I mean taking the time to see how much of the world is in us. It’s taking the time to discover how much influence the world has on us. I think we do a great job in many departments. God is in our spiritual department. We give Him a great space but He should be in all departments. The idea of giving free range to God in my job department used to sound strange to me. I used to think that I needed to have a “God life” and another life so to speak. The truth is a life without God in it is not a life well-spent.
The Lord has the right to inhabit every department of our lives. Free will gives us control over how much we allow to be taken over by Him. If there are departments in your life that are occupied by fear and worry, they have not been turned over to the Lord. He can’t cohabit with any form of negativity. Letting God enter the inhabited rooms starts with praying over them in His name. Just say a simple prayer expressing how you are giving up control over that area and you are welcoming the Lord into that space. Give Him full access. Give in to the Holy Spirit. Speak life over that department. Speak positively about it. Then introduce daily praises to God regarding that department. Know that God is in control of all departments and act accordingly. Refuse to fear and refuse to worry. Celebrate how good God is in everything. Before long you will see what a God invasion looks like and how amazing it is!
