I had the honor of being a part of a small team that helped Mike Bickle birth and pioneer IHOPKC. It was from 1999-2011 that I soaked in the passion and desire of God’s heart for me. I simply locked into the revelation of God’s beauty, and my beauty in Him. Honestly, before moving to Kansas City, my paradigm of God was mostly distorted with negative thinking. I never thought He could be happy with me and believed He was always disappointed in me. But over the years, as I gazed and meditated upon a beautiful happy God who was on fire for me, He started to change my image and mindset of His personality. It was life-changing. But it didn’t come overnight. There were many years of wrestling to embrace the truth, especially of my beauty in Him. I am still a work in progress.
If God could change my heart and mindset of who He is and who I am in His eyes, so He can do the same for you. If He could renew my image of an angry and cranky God to a happy God who smiles over me, so He can do the same for you. If He could take my cold heart and set my heart aflame with passion for Jesus, so He can do the same for you. He is no respecter of man.
