‘Let your gentleness be evident to all’
Tsunami Waves Banner Series
These series of Tsunami Wave banners are designed to encourage us to go for more - for all God wants for us - not the small portion we may have come to expect. Using these banners in prayer, declaration or ministry help us to look up- to raise our expectation of the God of more than enough.
Sometimes we fall under the misunderstanding that God only wants to give us the bare minimum. We expect “just enough” rather than expecting extravagantly, “infinitely more than all we can ask or imagine”.
As banner wielders we can partner with God to begin to shift the situation we and others find ourselves in, not in tiny increments but in a huge wave of change.
In Isaiah 59:19 it says, “When the enemy comes in, like a flood the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard (banner) against him and put him to flight [For He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives].”(AMP)
The imagery is that of a flash-flood contained by the walls of a narrow canyon in the desert in Israel - a inland tsunami that suddenly overwhelms the enemy and washes everything away before it!
Sometimes we restrict ourselves to man-sized interventions rather than God-sized interventions. Ephesian 3:19-20 expresses this sense of much more than we expect in the following way:
“…so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself. Now to the Him who is able to carry out His purposes and do superabundantly more than all we dare ask or think, infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes and dreams, according to His power that is at work within us.’ (AMP)
God can do awe-inspiring, immeasurable, tsunami-like things that are greater than you could ask or imagine.
So, let’s start asking big! Tsunami-sized big!
Tsunami Waves of Gentleness
Gentleness is a quality of a progressive and easy movement, of what works smoothly and noiselessly. It is the quality of being tender, kind, careful, compassionate and considerate. The way you act and speak shows love and care for another. It may not be the first attribute of God we think of - but the longer I live the more I see the need for gentleness - and lots of it!
People who are stuck, people who are traumatised don’t need more noise and movement - they need someone to gently get them unstuck! To put some oil on the stuckness and ease it to freedom. Sometimes humans need lots and lots of gentleness to heal them and help them get loose, break through and move on.
The Bible has much to say about Gentleness - though it is often overlooked and rarely taught about, it is part of the fruit of the Spirit. It is not a weakness, but great self-control and strength of character is needed to be gentle in many situations.
