Holy Ghost Tweaked Messages


So, I had my message done for Inspire Conference and put it to rest and went on to other things. But as usual, as I'm winding down for the evening, God drops a few more things in my head and I yank it back out and start writing all over my "final" copy. I'll re-type with all the changes tomorrow and make another "final copy" so then I can write all over THAT one in my hotel room Thursday night. :-)
Really the copy is never final. God adds things up til the last second, and then during. They have asked me to bring a message they heard me bring before at another conference...and I am. Only when I am asked to do this and I preach something the second, third, fourth (or even more) times, the Lord always tweaks it. 

You'd think it would be easy...somebody hears a message, it totally resonates with them and they bring you in to their church/conference to bring that same specific message, so - what's so hard about this? Just pull the notes back out. Well, with me, especially on the things I'm so passionate about - God is always telling me more things. Always bringing a fresh perspective. Always igniting my fire again. So it's the same message, with usually much more to it, and also other parts refined. Plus a fresh anointing of the Spirit upon it, so therefore no telling what can happen to it.

I really know that God is going to show up this weekend. I have no doubt. 

Bringing God's Word to people is the biggest responsibility but also the most exciting thing in the world. I still wake up in the mornings and say, "I can't believe this is what I get to do!"

They say if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life!
