MIDNIGHT MEDITATION – PlanetShakers, Welcome to the Epicenter

Matthew 28:1-2:  Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. Earthquakes are sudden and occur with little or no warning. However, following a major earthquake, the after-shocks may sometimes indicate the likelihood of a further earthquake. On some occasions, an earthquake may be preceded by  less intense tremors or foreshocks. Basic characteristics of an earthquake are: 1. It is not yet possible to predict magnitude, time, and place of an earthquake. 2. The onset is usually sudden. 3. Earthquake-prone areas are generally well identified and well known on the basis of geological features and past occurrences. 4. Major effects arise mainly from ground movement and fractures of rocks underground. The obvious effects include damage (usually [...]

MIDNIGHT MEDITATION – 3/20/2017 – PLANETSHAKERS

MIDNIGHT MEDITATION: 3/20/2017 ~PLANETSHAKERS Matthew 27:51. After he gave up his spirit, the earth shook, the rocks split, and tombs opened." In November 2009, pastors in Haiti had a national meeting. They prayed for revival. They prayed that God would shake their land. They prayed that He would tear down the strongholds in government, the evil forces in the judicial system, the presidency, and the corrupt politicians. As they prayed, they believed that there was an exchan...ge in the spiritual realm. When a devastating earthquake happened just two months later, the pastors believed that it was the physical manifestation of a pre-existing spiritual reality. Many believed that it was a direct answer to prayer. When we pray, we’re not in control of how God answers—we just believe that He will. However, we CAN control our actions and reactions. We can allow the shaking to begin in us, with us, and [...]

MANIFEST MANNA: DREAM BIG, EXECUTE MORE

MANIFEST MANNA: Meditate on Genesis 11:6. "The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they imagine will be impossible for them." The mind has the power to cause us to use our imaginations for good, or for evil. Our minds can magnify mistakes and inflate one's sense of self and success. We must always be careful to guard and protect our minds because this is the storehouse of information and revelation! It is also the front line of sabotage to every great thing, every great experience, every great relationship, and every great dream we have! This happens because dwelling on anything too long without doing something about it is not only unproductive, it is detrimental to proper and accurate achievement of your desired goals! An irritant to any productive person's mind is when they encounter individuals who are simply [...]

MANIFEST MANNA: Breathing to Breakthrough

MANIFEST MANNA: Meditate on Acts 17:28 "In Him we live, we move, and have our being..." One of the primary rules of meditation is to ponder, consider, and reflect before you offer a response. With so many things going on competing with our minds for attention, not everything that is reflected on can be spoken about--nor should it be. Sometimes the best response to chaos is an INWARD one. A godly response to life's challenges can be our breeding ground for the miraculous! When we find ourselves in atmospheres of adversity; when we find ourselves in a stagnant place; when we find that every hindering spirit imaginable seems to have been unleashed against us; we can take solace that there is available to us, the divine breath of GOD flowing CONTINUOUSLY through our body temples! BREATHING your way through calamity is an art form that can only be mastered through [...]

MANIFEST MANNA: Sing!

Manifest Manna: Meditate on Psalm 8:1-2. “O Lord, Our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. V2. From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.” Why Did King David Put Singers & Psalmists Before The Ark? David organized 4000 musicians and 288 singers to minister to God in SHIFTS that continued 24 hours a day! (1 Chr 6:31-33; 15:16-22; 23:4-6). In fact, David financially released them that they might worship and pray as their full time occupation (1 Chr 9:33; 25:7). Being full time, they had the opportunity to develop in skill and grace. David taught that God inhabits or is enthroned upon the praise of His people (Ps 22:3). He understood that the people of God upon the earth through worship would enter into [...]

MANIFEST MANNA: It’s Already Alright

MANIFEST MANNA: Meditate on Isaiah 58:8-9. "Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry out for help, and he will say: Here I am." The root of this meditation has to do with the results one can experience when striving to please God. And one of the key ways that we please God is by reaching out to others. Ecclesiastes Chapter 3:5 says that there is a "time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing..." We are living in a time where we must accurately discern what season we are in--both personally and in the Body of Christ. The Spirit of the Lord is guiding us to treat this particular season [...]
