We had a great worship time with a Filippino band from Sydney, but somehow I felt disturbed in my spirit. Of course it's good to worship Jesus, He deserves it, but often even worship times can become a comfort zone, something we're used to do because we think it helps us to 'get going'. But worship is more than singing songs. In fact there's only one account of Jesus singing with his disciples (Matthew 26,30), so apparently it wasn't that big an issue in his ministry. Real worship is about a holistic lifestyle of obedience, doing what you see the Father do.
One of the things God showed me for this meeting is that He wants to open doors for us to enter into a reality of the Kingdom of God that we've not experienced before. Somehow our experiences with God so far can limit us to look beyond our current realities, so we don't expect Him to do much more than we can imagine. Think of the first Narnia movie - the door in the wardrobe brought the kids into a completely new reality, a new kingdom. In the same way seeing with our human eyes and seeing in the Spirit are two completely different realities. The disciples who journeyed with Jesus and saw him change water into wine, multiply bread, and walk on water were continually stretched in their paradigms of what was real.
To illustrate this point, I showed the video clip 'Glosoli' of Icelandic music band Sigur Ros. It's an impacting artistic vision of how God is connecting the emerging generation to journey together, and then launch out into in a new dimension/experience of the Kingdom of God. Our biggest enemy is probably fear for the unknown, having to trust God for provision at the right time. There are also things we have to throw down to be able to move into this new reality - think of so-called 'old wineskins', that served us in the past, but won't be able to serve us today or in the future.
