The Simplicity of Relationship

I was going to bed recently when I heard the Lord whisper to me, “Do you want to wake up early and dream with me?” I knew what He was asking, because I have this thing with God where He will wake me up for special times of prayer and seeking. Some of my strongest prophetic encounters have come in these moments. I told Him that I absolutely wanted to get up and dream with Him.

I love heaven’s invitation to rise up higher. There is great glory in pursuit. Invitations to hang out with God are invitations to soar into new heights. One of our great privileges as children of God is the ability and opportunity to seek Him, to spend time at His feet receiving from Him.

Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face continually.

1 Chronicles 16:11

The next morning, I woke up from a sound sleep at 5:30 am. I was wide awake well before my alarm was scheduled to go off. I spent some good time worshipping, praying in the Spirit and pondering the ways of God. I was expecting a deep revelation of encounter because of the invitation that I received from the Lord. There were several little nuggets dropped in my spirit, but no big overwhelming “bam” kind of moment. I was surprised that nothing I deemed as “big” happened.

I was pondering the lack of big revelation or encounter when the Lord whispered to me, “I am teaching you the simplicity of relationship.” He reminded me of times when I have traveled and my absence from my wife becomes like an ache in my heart. My head ponders all the ways that I love her. I cannot wait to see her and to express my love for her. I rush to get home, taking the early flight because I am ready to see my beloved.

Many times when I get home from a strenuous itinerary, I don’t desire to go out or do anything elaborate. In fact, my time with her has very little to do with what we do in that time. It is the reality of just being near her that fills my heart with joy. The best moments are often the quiet moments: just the two of us being together, enjoying a laugh, watching a movie, talking or just relaxing. It has nothing to do with the actual plan or activity, but it is the reality of just being present. The Lord brought that before me and told me that it is in the simplicity of learning to be present. That is where the depths of His glory are revealed, in the longing, in the waiting, in the watching. It is in the simple moments of just being with Him.

I place high value on prophetic dreams, dramatic encounters and life-changing revelation. Those experiences have drastically shifted my life on many occasions. The truth is there are many moments in His presence that are equally powerful yet void of any “big” experience. It is the revelation of the simplicity of relationship that the Lord was revealing to me. Just as I long to be present and near my wife, He longs for us to be near to Him and enjoy His presence. His invitation to me was not one of a radical experience but one of nearness. He was inviting me to spend time with Him, to love on Him, to be loved by Him and to dream with Him.

He is inviting you to seek Him, to dream with Him! He is inviting you to discover the wonder of His presence, the reality of His voice and the simplicity of relationship.

Thank you for share this blog!

One of the primary differences between a revival HUB and a traditional church mindset is the territorial mandate. Most traditional local churches are primarily focused on the growth and maintenance of their own body. A Revival HUB has a Kingdom mandate that is focused on kingdom equipping and exploits within a region.

I have known Ryan LeStrange for over twenty years, since he first came to attend New Life Bible College.  At that time he distinguished himself by his diligence in seeking the things of God.  We were able to observe his giftings continue to develop when after graduation he became the Administrator of our Bible College and continued to work for us in various capacities before God moved him on to plant his own ministry and follow the vision that God gave him. We have been blessed to see how God has used him to bring His Word and power around the world. He has a strong foundation in the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit to back it up.  He is also a man of great character and integrity who will not compromise his values for success or because of the opinion of men.


Author of "Prophetic Evangelism" & "I Am Your Sign"

We are entering into a reformation period in the church that, I believe will gloriously surpass that of 500 years ago with Martin Luther. There is a Divine shift coming to our current expression of Christianity and I'm convinced that Ryan LeStrange has been raised up as a strategic voice to prophetically speak into this radical recalibration and equip the Body of Christ to stand as a supernatural catalyst in these crucial times.

Dr. Ryan LeStrange is an anointed Apostle and Prophet whom God has raised up and equipped to teach that the first two ministries given in the five fold list are foundational to the Church becoming all that God wants her to be. I have been personally blessed to see the Holy Spirit impart His anointing and giftings to hundreds of ministers, both young and old.  A host of these divinely anointed ministers are functioning in full faith and fruit in this harvest, reaping souls for the Kingdom and Dr. LeStrange is one of them.
