A note from Ps. Dave:
Often when I’m looking for something around the house, I will complain about not being able to see it, only to be asked by Alix “are you having a ‘Man Look’?”.
The ‘Man Look’ is a tongue-in-cheek way of describing the act of looking, but not seeing. Many of us suffer from ‘Man Eyes’; I’m sure there are some other blokes who will sympathise with my affliction. Just as with these little domestic challenges that many of us face when trying locate something we need, it’s easy to look without seeing when it comes to what God is doing.
“But forget all that—
it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.
For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun!
Do you not see it?”
Isaiah 43:18-19 (NLT)
The extent of our vision is determined by where we stand, or our location. Our vision is always filtered or framed by what we are looking through, sunglasses, glasses cameras, binoculars and windows all frame our vision.
God is doing a new thing! He is leading us into a new era. Let’s make sure we stand in a place where we can see, stand on his promises, his faithfulness and his unchanging character, whilst making sure our past experience and current circumstances don’t distort or filter us from what God has begun.
Let’s have a ‘God Look’ rather than the old ‘Man Look’ at what God has begun in us as we walk into an exciting new era. Our new night service is one of those new things in a new era at Energizer Church. Let’s keep praying standing together with expectation; let’s be present, engaged and aware of what God is doing.
I’m believing for salvations, healing and a new freedom across this weekend at Youth Camp and our three services, as we embrace a new era! We can’t wait to hear from Ps. Layla Nahavandi at both our Hobart services, and our Derwent Valley 10am service via live link for the very first time. Don’t forget, we also have a spit roast and BBQ from 4.30pm for the night service; what a great week to invite friends to church!
See you there,
