“Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere him” Psalm 33:8
You may have noticed over the last year or so, that we have transitioned from simply Fusion, to Fusion movement. Why? Because our mission goes so much further than equipping student ministry in the UK. Taking the lid off of what seems humanly possible, our vision is to see at least one church on Student Linkup in every university city in Europe- because with all students everywhere being invested in, and in turn investing in their local churches, we will see a move of God. We are a movement.
Fusion are starting with Europe, and we are looking for people to join us in prayer, to connect us with churches and people who are passionate about student mission. Before you tag out of the Europe conversation because it “doesn’t concern me”... well, why not? Let’s not place human limits on Kingdom territory.
God is moving, and wants to work with us, but there are so many potential limitations. Each time we stop at one, we are effectively limiting what God can do through us. On the flip side, once we recognise that God wants to do SO much through each of us, and learn how to be alert to where we’re limiting Him, the potential for a move of God is electrifying.
Where God wants to push the boundaries and break through
God is a God of detail, and of paying attention, so when we think about where there may be limits on how God wants to move, I don’t just mean the obvious roadblocks. Of course, things like cultural traditions and church history are huge obstacles in this mission, but what about the smaller things? I believe we underestimate the impact they could have.
He wants a people of prayer. It is so easy to use the excuse of “I don’t have a heart for it” as a reason for passivity towards prayer for something. But where we draw a line in our prayers, God responds, “but I do.” There’s a brilliant song by Jesus Culture (Where you go I go) that says, “what you pray I pray” and it strikes me that we can see anything through the eyes of the Father as long as we just ask. Let’s take the limits off of our prayer life, and pray for those things in which God is working- Europe is a pretty big one.
He wants to bring people together. There are so many anointed people out there who carry the fire for student mission- we just haven’t found them yet. We can’t help not knowing everyone in Europe, but we can help to bring people together. Do you know someone who carries some of that fire? Or someone with great connections to Christians in another nation? Or someone who is brilliant at translating? Fusion want to know. Let’s take the limits off of our connections by daring to do an awkward ask or a bold invite to the movement.
He wants to activate some unexpecting individuals. I believe that there are people out there who feel a deep, Holy Spirit fuelled excitement as they read about a student movement in Europe, but they don’t believe they have “the right gifts”. If you have a stirring in you that you cannot escape, get in touch. The saying “God doesn’t call the equipped, he equips the called” is a long-standing favourite, because it is true. Fusion want to hear from you. Let’s take the limits off of how God can use us by acting on the convictions within us.
What in your life do you need to act on, or change, to allow God more space to work through you?
Let’s ask God to give us kingdom vision, to view our mission through His eyes. Once that is the lens with which we’re looking through, no prayer will be too big, no invitation too bold, no gifting redundant. Where we see limitations, God sees possibility.
So, let’s jump into what God is doing. We’re contending for a move of God, to see nations saved and transformed by the limitless love of the Father, and whether you believe it or not, you have something to bring to this part of history.
Join us in praying over Europe on 6th March.
