Where are the men after God’s heart?

Those who are:

OBEDIENT – Submission to someone greater

HUMBLE – Servant

COURAGEOUS – Fighter/Warrior

PASSIONATE – Worshiper

A man with a heart after God – LOVES GOD! Every man wants the Goliath story, but David also danced! Everyone wants to be the warrior, but what about also dancing before the Lord and looking foolish before people? Men, we are wired by God to have a heart after His.

“And when He had removed him, He raised up for them David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.’” Acts 13:22 NKJV


Acts 13:22, Matthew 23:11–12, Psalm 27:13–14, 2 Samuel 6:21–23, 1 Samuel 13:1–14

Even if we know Jesus, there’s more to know. The whole world has talked and debated Jesus throughout history. “Who is Jesus?” His life has had a great impact on people, greater than any other person in history. Are we satisfied to know Him as we know Him today, or do we desire to know Him deeper? Is there anything left to surrender that is in the way of knowing Him more? Is there any part of your life that His love doesn’t touch?

Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” Matthew 16 : 13

Unity, Stability and Maturity in The Body of Christ – God is accomplishing it through the building of the Five-Fold Ministry. Jesus gave us Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Shepherds and Teachers, representing His own ministry. We are shifting from a One-Man Ministry to a Five-Fold Ministry – the divine wisdom of God, and He is restoring it in the Earth today. It is for the equipping of the saints for the work of service for the building up of the body of Christ.

We’re familiar with Pastors and Shepherds. The body of Christ has been over-pastored and under fathered, which is why we have a culture of being a nursery and not an army. We have tried to build the church in our own wisdom and have built an atmosphere of immaturity in the body.

God is waking us up, and changing how we have perceived church, and He’s calling us back into His Word.

Ephesians 4:7-16 NASB 1995

YouVersion Notes

When we receive Holy Spirit, we should expect to speak in tongues.

Holy Spirit doesn’t take over your tongue, but does tell you what to say, giving you the words to speak out of your mouth. We have to speak what He says.

First – We are filled with the PERSON of HOLY SPIRIT.
THEN – Holy Spirit tells us what to say.

It’s Holy Spirit’s job to give us the “utterance,” but it’s our job to do the speaking.

“While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter answered, “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days.” Acts 10:44-48


Luke 24:48-49 , Acts 1:4-8, Acts 2:1-4 , Acts 10:44-48 , I Corinthians 14:1-2, I Corinthians 14:4-5

“He sees crowds of people doing their own thing, making their own way, putting their trust in their own abilities and doing what is best for themselves. And He is saying, ‘Excuse me, you’re in My way.'”

God wants to move in our lives, but we won’t slow down, stop and listen and give up what WE want to to do, while wanting Him to bless our desires. If we would let Him through and let Him lead, paths would begin to open up for our lives that we have no idea.

Will you allow Him to take the lead? To lead you and guide you? Will you listen to His voice? It requires surrender. In your surrender, He will take you where you’ve never been before.

I hear the Lord saying, “I will stay close to you,

instructing and guiding you along the pathway for your life.

I will advise you along the way

and lead you forth with my eyes as your guide.

So don’t make it difficult; don’t be stubborn

when I take you where you’ve not been before.

Don’t make me tug you and pull you along.

Just come with me!”

Psalm 32:8-9 TPT
