Today, I start an internship with the International House of Prayer Tallahassee. I’m doing it because I believe God is calling me to it, which is really the best reason to do anything, I think. I’m not sure I even fully understand why I’m doing it, but I’m going to step out in faith regardless. I haven’t been doing much of that lately; I think this is a great place to start.
To give you a little idea of what I’ll be doing, it’s a forty hour per week commitment, plus a little extra sometimes. I’m taking four classes: Eschatology, Developing a Heart After God, the Heart of the Nazarite and the Lost Art of Intercession. In addition to that, I’ll be in the prayer room for the most part, and I’ll probably be doing a good bit of worship leading.
My heart for this internship is really just to meet God and receive His love. I’m devoting the next three months specifically for that purpose. Maybe I’ll find something significant to run with. Maybe I’ll get the guts to embrace the call of God on my life. Will I change? I don’t doubt it. Will the world change around me? I hope so. So I will make my requests. And God will be faithful.
“And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
