2014 is Aglow’s 40th Conference
The Thursday Evening Session opened with a warm welcome from Jane. She brought to light the fact that Aglow was incorporated 47 years ago, but this is our 40th conference. A significant number to be sure.
New Mexico is a “God Inhabited” Land
Diane Davis, SW Regional Director greeted the audience. Did you know that New Mexico has the highest percentage of Hispanic people and the 2nd highest percentage of Native American peoples in the nation? The slogan for New Mexico is “The land of enchantment”. Diane declared over New Mexico that it is a “God inhabited land”.
Strongholds are Coming Down
Sande Lofberg, Great Plains Regional Director, introduced 2 Navajo women, Ella Wilson, and Jeanie who spoke blessing and prayed over the conference, the state and the nation. They taught the audience the word for hello in Navajo, “Yatahey”. Before coming on the platform Ella presented a picture of a flaming sword to Jane entitled, “The Sword of The Lord, Strongholds are Coming Down”.
In Jane’s introduction to Julie she said, “Graham said, ‘God has a vision for you beyond your struggles’”. She went on to say that our vision of His majesty increases as we stand, or sit, or are prone in worship before Him. When we worship we leave our struggles, as we enter into His presence the things we think are so important begin to dim. And then we realize He’s got it all in His hands.
In Julie Meyer’s open worship she said, “Worship is a weapon. Every song is as arrows of light going out into this nation.”
Worship is a weapon. Every song is as arrows of light going out into this nation.
During this incredible evening of worship Julie sang declarations over America, New Mexico, and Israel.
“Hear Oh Israel, for the Lord God is One God Thou shall Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind, will all thy soul.”
“Hear America, The Lord God is One God, You shall love the Lord thy God with all of your heart, with all your mind, with all your strength.”
Julie took everyone into the throne room with the songs, “You Turn my Mourning Into Dancing”, “Paint your Picture”, and “Go Tell it on the Mountain”.
The sweet presence of worship opened the gates of our hearts with a refreshing breeze from heaven.
