overtake.

I was in my office at the church today working on something that needed to be completed before I left for the day. As I was typing on my computer I felt an urgent sense to pray. I stopped what I was doing and offered up a quick prayer. As I started to conclude, I was overcome with a stronger urgency to continue. I tried to shake it since I had a deadline, but couldn't. I ended up kneeling in the corner and couldn't compose myself. I kept feeling the Lord prompt my heart to pray that He would OVERTAKE. I started to pray that the Lord would overtake my heart... overtake my family... overtake our LifeGroup... overtake our church... overtake our community, etc. I feel like the Lord was revealing to me my critical need for Him to OVERTAKE my life.... my plans.... my hopes... my endeavors.... that they wouldn't just be offered over to Him, but that He would be commissioned to engulf, to overwhelm, to consume, to envelop my life. I became completely undone.

At that exact moment, this song came on my computer. I love moments like that.

I absolutely love spontaneous worship from Bethel. There is no doubt that God led you into that prayer and would not release you from it. He works in such amazing ways. What a blessing to get such a great confirmation of your obedience!
