2015 New Year - Intimate Hunger For God

As I sit in my hotel room in Kansas City I am overwhelmed at the thought of how much more I NEED TO GET TO KNOW GOD: I mean get to know HIM INTIMATELY.
I have been attending the ONE THING 2014 Conference for the past 3 days and have had the privilege of hearing and learning from many great and powerful speakers and worship leaders (Misty Edwards, Laura Hacket, Kari Jobe, Jon Thurlow, Corey Russel, Mike Bickle, Reinhard Bonnke, etc). The one thing that has stood out the most to me is this... I NEED TO STUDY THE WORD: for without knowing the Word... I will never TRULY KNOW GOD. And without TRULY KNOWING GOD I will never know HIS HEART... and without knowing HIS HEART I will never truly experience HIS PRESENCE... and without experiencing HIS PRESENCE I will not know how to lead his people into a GOD FILLED WORSHIP EXPERIENCE. 

I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity and time to fill my GOD TANK. I am reminded that as a ministry leader it is crucial to continually take and make time to be alone in the presence of God; to seek Him; to meditate on Him; to go to that Holy place with Him. As a Worship Leader I am so inspired to keep on seeking God in my own personal worship moments like never before; reading his Word, reading books about worship, writing more songs, singing and waiting on Him. REVELATION 5:8 declares: 'From the rising of the sun to its setting down, the Name of the Lord shall be praised."
I have been convicted to make less time for worldly interruptions and more time for the KING OF KINGS. Less time for noisy distractions and more quiet time with the LORD OF LORDS. Less time complaining about how tired I feel or how hard life is and more time kneeling and waiting on HIM

See at the end of the day what will really matter is how INTIMATELY WE KNEW HIM. Will He recognize you by the amount of things you did for HIM? or by the amount of TIME YOU SPENT WITH HIM. Both are important - but the second one is CRUCIAL. 

Wherever you find yourself right now- take a moment, stop, and begin to THANK HIM and just PRAISE HIS NAME.
I pray with all my heart that as 2015 makes its entrance - God would be your priority and your FIRST LOVE.
