ABOUT

God Night is exactly what it states; a night with God.  God's invitation is still available for anyone who will respond to Him.  Many believers are gathering now where He is the focus of our attention.  His people are pursuing a place where His presence can saturate the atmosphere.  Likewise, God also waits for those who do not seek Him to know His presence too.  The term God Night may be original or unique.  The concept of a night with God is not.  

 

In Genesis we learn Moses was a murderer.  He fled Egypt after this violent act.  In his mind, he had no plans of going back to Egypt anytime soon.  However, God saw something inside Moses worth redeeming.  After Moses encountered God, he never thought he would be sent back to Egypt with a purpose.  Moses confronted the Egyptian Pharaoh one morning. The Lord told Moses to say to him, "This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews says: Let my people go, so they may worship me."  Our time now is no different than it was back then.  God still desires our worship. He still wants us free from things that enslave us. God still see's something worth redeeming in our life.         

 

In 2 Corinthians we read, "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom."  The focus of God Night is to open a door of freedom.  A door anyone would want to walk through.  Jesus is that door.  The freedom in His righteousness allows us to approach God's throne in boldness and confidence.  God Night is structured with flexibility so we can move in God's direction for the night.  We will worship God in Spirit and Truth.  We will allow our worship to reach any depth with any amount of time needed.  Just imagine if we leave our agenda and make a place for God to create one? 

When we meet with God we should expect Him to do God things. What are God things?  They are the things Jesus did.   God is unpredictable and so are these gatherings.  The expectation is to allow God's Spirit to lead the night.  Many can't imagine hosting a meeting without a program or an agenda. However, how can God have a night to move if we already predetermine the outcome? 

 

God's working in us, around us, and through us is made manifest through His Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is the person described by Jesus as the Advocate.  He will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin, righteousness, and judgement.  The Spirit's work is to testify about Jesus.  Many believers accept the testimony of Jesus in word and teaching.  The message of the Gospel is also with a demonstration of the Spirit's power.  This is so our faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God's power. (1 Corinthians 2:4-5)  All the demonstrations that Jesus and His disciples did are for those who follow Him today.  God gives His spirit without limit.(John 3:34)  God Night is designated to the work of the Holy Spirit. 

We are instructed to ask, seek, knock and the door will be opened.  This promise is for anyone.  We must remember we seek God because He loved us first.  God Night is a night for God to do God. It's a night to express our worship.  It is a night to embrace the work of His Holy Spirit.  

God Night is a night for those who seek God's presence.
