When you see Jesus, when you look in His face, when you see Jesus, He'll change you in His grace. When you see Jesus, you'll never be the same.

When I was an eight-year old girl, I saw Jesus. It changed me forever. I heard Him say, "You'll go to the nations of the earth. You'll be a missionary." I fell in love with Him.

There was such a burden on the inside of me to reach nations and fulfill God's plan for my life and from that day to this, I never want it to change. He's all I'm consumed with. When you see Jesus, nothing else in life is important anymore - just fulfilling His plan.

God has pre-ordained and planned out ahead of time for each and everyone of us a plan for our lives.

The way we come to know that plan is not in the hustle-bustle of life and so occupied with things to do. It's when we become quiet before God, bow our knee before Him in humbleness and in reverence and say, "God, I make You the Lord of my life. Jesus, I submit my will totally and completely to Your will, not my will be done anymore, but Your will be done." When we're in that place with God then He can begin to reveal His plan for our lives.

So many people get discouraged and are out doing things they aren't even supposed to be doing because they've never taken the time to submit to the Lordship of Jesus. Take the time. It takes soul-searching, deep soul-searching, to find out the will of God for your life.

Sometimes, we spend 15 minutes before God and say, "God, lead me, give me direction, tell me what to do and where to go - tell me, lead me, guide me..." And we act just as if we're going to McDonald's and ordering a hamburger. We push the button, give our order, drive around the corner and say, "O.K., I've received it."

God Wants to Draw Us Close to Him
God is wanting us to reach deeper and deeper into Him in this day and hour. It takes time in hearing from God. This generation does not know what it means to "pray through." We need to wait and get still where God can actually talk to us. God's wanting to draw us into that place of intimacy with Him so we can hear His voice.

If we get so hungry for God, He will show up. He will give us visions. He will show us His will for our lives. It's up to us. The responsibility of it has been placed in our hands.

We are that last generation that is going to usher in the appearing of Jesus, but there is a lot of work involved. God is wanting us to prepare ourselves now to say, "Yes, Lord, I'll go where You want me to go. I'll be Your voice and Your hands." Through this generation, nations are going to be won in a day. Our prayers can change the course of a nation.

Ephesians 6:18 (AMP) says, "Pray at all times - (on every occasion, in every season) - in the Spirit, with all (manner of) prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints." It might be labeled that intercession is the heart of prayer. When you take your eyes off of your own personal needs and focus on those of another, that is intercession. It is done by the Holy Spirit.

A lot of the time we pray out of obedience, but there is available to the Body of Christ a Spirit of prayer. I can stand here and be praying in tongues over and over and over and my mind can be thinking of all the things that I have to do that day. I may never really reach down into my spirit and pull out what God really wants me to pray about.

Well, God is wanting us to move over into a deeper realm with Him where we aren't just playing church games, or praying in the Spirit because we're "tongue-talkers." No - The Holy Spirit was given to us by God for a reason. The reason is to reach a deeper walk, a deeper place with God and climb up a little bit higher into the inner recesses of the spirit man.

The Bible says that He's our Helper. He aids and assists us in praying the perfect prayer when we don't know how to pray. Romans 8:28 says, "We are assured and know that (God being a partner in our labor) all things work together and are (fitting into a plan) for good to those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose."

Get Into A Flow With God
Notice the word "labor." Intercession is work. When you begin to get into a Spirit of prayer, intercession, you will get in a flow. You will become supercharged. When you get into a flow in the spirit, you're not always looking at your watch. When you're in the flow of the Spirit prayer, you'll pray for one hour and it will seem like five minutes. You're in a flow.

Sometimes when we first go into prayer, it's as dry as can be, but you just keep after it. You may come out saying, "I just did what I was supposed to do and there wasn't anything there." Well, don't stop. You go back the next day and get into that flow that God wants you in. Enter into this Spirit of prayer.

I want to see Jesus. I want to fulfill His plan for my life. How much do you want? How far do you want to go with God? When you get to that place of flowing, you will see Jesus. And when you see Jesus, He'll change you forever. When you see Jesus, you'll never be the same!
