Zechariah 8:23 “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In those days ten men from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, ‘Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you,’”
God promises a time when people will be begging to go to church with us! People will finally awaken to their need of God, their desires will change and they will pursue Him by asking us where to find Him! Be ready for this!
Already, I have people stopping me in the grocery stores to talk to me or ask questions about where items can be found. I had this happen twice this weekend in two different stores. I stop what I am doing and purposely talk with strangers. Who knows where the conversation will lead? One time I got to pray with a woman in Walmart for her handicapped granddaughter. The woman was showing me pictures of the girl on her cell phone!
Be available at all times to share Christ, pray, stop what you are doing and talk to strangers! Remember Jesus who chatted with a woman at the well about a simple drink of water and how that lead to her conversion.
GO WITH THE FLOW
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
I don’t live by the expression “Go with the flow” because it offers no definition to my activities. Instead, I live the Ephesians 2:10 that clearly states that God has my activities in Christ all planned out for me. All I have to do is find out what they are and then physically do them. Be assured that these things are very practical and beneficial for yourself and for others.
I am a strong advocate of Christians knowing their God-ordained purposes and then doing them by faith. We don’t have to flounder in life. We are not lost—so why are we wandering around?
There is a scripture that I say to myself often, “God will fulfill His purposes for me.” Yes—as long as we are actively engaged in those purposes. That is the flow that we need to go with! Amen!
It has been a long 10 years since these young women went missing. we are thrilled to see their safe return home. This whole incident, the Lost being Found, reminds me of the scripture Luke 15:32: "But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; He was lost and now is Found."
I live just a few blocks from the area that the girls went missing. I was running errands at the nearby bank and noticed all the media from different parts of the World! All eyes are on Cleveland! As I contemplated on this wonderful and joyous occasion I was reminded of a prophetic word spoken over the North East Ohio Region about 10 years ago. It was written and has been circulated among the churches. In this word it said that Cleveland will be experiencing a great Revival and that all of the world would come to SEE what was happening here! Knowing that what happens in the natural is a foreshadow of what is to come in the Spiritual, I quickly understood the Miracle that was unfolding before our eyes! The return of the ones being held Captive, 3 women who lost the most exciting decade of any persons life, Young Adulthood; to be found and given another chance at life, what a picture of the condition of our generation today! The young adults are being held captive by perverse lies. They are being held captive by sin and lust of the flesh, and yes against their Spiritual Will. These young women's spirits were vexed. They will never be the same, their innocence stolen. Our children's innocence is being stolen and people between the ages of 14 and 30 are being deceived by the great deceiver and father of lies.
But God! He has promised Revival on this land. the Lost will be Found! and they will come home and regain their identity in Christ! They will come home and receive true freedom! Their wounds will be healed and their hearts mended!!
Look Up, and see the harvest! Look up and see God's glorious salvation come!
