Have you watched streams as they flow towards a common river? Have you studied the heavens when the sun, moon and earth line up for an eclipse? Have you been in a meeting where there is a synergy released as everyone comes to a common conclusion or experience?
The word is "convergence." In the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, convergence is defined as the act of converging and especially moving toward union or uniformity (2) independent development of similar characters (as of bodily structure of unrelated organisms or cultural traits) often associated with similarity of habits or environment or (3)the merging of distinct technologies, industries, or devices into a unified whole.
Simpler please! Convergence is when everything comes together and "something happens." I have felt for weeks that we are near "something happening." It is hard to put into words but I can feel an excitement and tension building in my spirit. As we have focused our prayers on national issues (oil spill, border security, Israel, etc), the Lord has been converging our prayers and intercessions. I can not recall a time when the "prayer energy" in our city of Arlington has been so high.
I believe the Lord is about to set some things in order. Even a meeting next month, which was supposed to be nothing more than an annual gathering of the council members of the Texas Apostolic Prayer Network, has turned towards a key gathering on Friday, August 20 at Prince of Peace Church in Arlington. Dr. John Benefiel of Oklahoma and Dr. Chuck Pierce of Global Spheres will be with us. It is a convergence and you are invited! You can download a map at this link: MAP.
