You know it has been a good Sunday when you leave church asking that question.
This Sunday I had the honor of serving in the Revival Kids Children’s Ministry with Kevin. It definitely was amazing in there! We taught our lesson, this week about how the book of Ruth ties into God’s “rescue plan” for the world, and it was pretty good. Once we were done, we wanted to pray. We all sat on the carpet together, as you can see in the picture.
As soon as we got down, the atmosphere shifted. The presence of God was so strong and Kevin and I looked at each other like “wow”.
One of the most important things my wonderful Revival Kids team and I talk about in our meetings is how the same Holy Spirit that is present in the adult service, is present in our times in Revival Kids. God has been proving that week after week in that little classroom.
Last week in RK, joy broke out all over the room and the teachers had to stop the lesson and let God move. We love that!
This week, the Heavens were opened up on those children. In the picture, you see most children laying on the floor, they love doing that to hear God. They were all sharing visions they had received from God. I was getting so overcome with the presence of God that I wasn’t sure how we would be able to move on. The children shared visions and what God was speaking to them for at least 30 minutes. It was AMAZING!
My favorite part of RK today was when a little boy (5 years old) started sharing his vision: “I see white, oh wait, I see the Heavens. Now I see a chair and I see Jesus, but wait, Jesus is sitting in the chair. There are a lot of angels around him.” This continued for at least 7 minutes. He saw Jesus on the throne! After that, we were all laid out on the ground and this little boy is praying powerfully: “God show us the heavens! God show us the heavens!” over and over again. I couldn’t do anything but tear up and look around and ask, “Is this really happening right now?” After he was praying, the kids started sharing what they saw. All the children said they either saw Heaven, angels, or Jesus. Can they make this stuff up? I don’t think so.
I don’t know exactly what God is doing in this season, but we are so open to it! I can’t wait to see what He has in store for us in Revival Kids.
“At that time Jesus declared, ‘I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children.’” -Matthew 11:25
