Whenever I am asked to speak, I spend extra time seeking the Lord for His message. My words, while they may be encouraging, are nothing but platitudes compared to the power His words can release. One morning, I asked, “Abba, what do You want me to share tonight?” I waited and listened and this is what I heard in my spirit:
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
Lord, are we going somewhere?
“Yes, to the outreaches of the earth carrying My fire igniting flames (His ministers are flames of fire) from My glory. You will light and be lit as you go at My bidding. No fear—No fear—All provision met. All the dates are set. My calendar is full for you.
Not in your own strength but in Mine. Not for your glory, for it is I who will shine. Your humility will make a way. Look to Me for all that you need. Nothing too small or too big for My answer. All needs met beyond your wildest expectations.
“You are being tried and tested for the journey. You will not be caught off guard. My angels are with you and they will do warfare for you as you take your stand in Me.
“You will need Joshua 1:9—you’ll see. Nothing to fear, for I AM here.
“Go when I call you, follow My lead. Stay until you hear Me or you will fall. Heed My instructions and all will be well, no matter how it may appear. Walk by faith and not by sight. My word will be your light.
“This is a time for rededication. Repent and turn to Me and let Me cleanse you of all that hinders your walk. The harvest is waiting. Fear not, all is well.”
God is calling us today into the harvest fields. His message is the same as it was that morning. In His strength, by His direction and anointing, we are being sent out to do His bidding, for His glory. Sounds pretty one-sided, right? Yes, it is. But we are called to reveal Him. As you reach out into your world today remember Who you are representing. He is with you every step of the way.
Shalom. Have a blessed week.
