Toronto Worship Concert.
For the first time since the pandemic, I was so blessed to attend a worship concert last June 14, 2022 together with over 15 thousand Christians!
Maverick City Music, Kirk Franklin, Housefires and Jonathan McReynolds and their group visited us here in Canada for their tour, and what a refreshing moment it was!
Days before the concert, during one of my quiet times, I was being prompted by the Lord to go. I booked a ticket for one, and I went there on my own. It was yet again one of the few times I have gone to a big event on my own, and slowly but surely, I am getting used to how the Lord sends me in my season.
It was one of the best worship concerts I have been to since the pandemic. Not only was it live and not online, not only because there were only a few I have been to, but because I opened my eyes one time during the worship and God made me realize I am with 15,000 plus other people praising and worshipping Him and Him alone.
I went in and found my seat, and I met a family – a mom, a daughter and a son. I smiled towards them and shared my excitement, and I found out that the son was actually a local rapper and that it was his first time to be in such a setting.
The whole family are actually not Christians; the daughter told me that they actually just went there because they enjoy local concerts and festivals in the area. They know about Kirk Franklin though!
This amazed me. Right when I heard this, the Lord just told me that He will move in the hearts of each and every people in the stadium – no matter what their purpose or agendas were.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
While worshipping that night together with 15,000 plus other believers in Jesus Christ, our God just gave me peace and stilled my thoughts, reminding me that in this world we may have trouble – hearts growing cold and forgetting who He is and what He can and will do – but take heart! He has overcome the world.
Thank You Lord Jesus for this wonderful experience. Glory to God and God alone!
