Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Romans 12:9
Today I give a word of encouragement to the weary worker.
Are you feeling a little spent? Maybe a little fret and anger? Well warrior of the Most High, you are limiting the gifts given you by your impartiality (detachment). The Lord says to you that if you will open your eyes you will see that He is with you – And if you will open your heart as wide as your eyes you will feel His love; not only for you, but for all.
Oh weary traveler, understand that everyone you come across needs what you desire to give; but if you fail to give it, who failed?
To be a good steward you must be partial to everyone. To be a good steward you must see as Jesus sees, through the eyes of the heart and then you will WANT to present your truth as truth is needed.
Just the other day Rev & I were really tired and just wanting to buy some food for Annie and head home. But as usual, a lost soul happens by and out of the blue starts talking about the chemtrail conspiracy theory. The more he talked the more hopeless he became. Now there are two points that I need to make about this encounter:
1. As ambassadors of Christ, we need to be educated on current events of the day so that we can be pertinent.
2. We must be ready at all times to share our hope with a lost and decaying soul.
In the state that we were in, it would have been very easy to just agree and walk away but instead, we shared with him the truth that there is One who sits above all things, and He alone is in control.
Did we have church right there? No! But the Word was planted and one day when needed it will sprout.
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. Hebrews 13:2
The work that the Lord gives His chosen to do is a hard work in that no man is good nor receptive, but all long for what they do not have and in this, we are the called. Warriors, be patient and pressing and let the Holy Spirit flow through your gifts to work as they will on even the hardest of hearts.
HERE’S THE NUGGET: It is hard to give words of life when you feel like you’re drowning. Grab hold of the life-raft & regain your strength. The Lord will never leave nor forsake you. Just as He was with the apostles and prophets of yesterday, He is with you today and the gifts given you will prosper..but you must use them.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Until next time,
Love your gifts, love me, and love all those around you : )
Love, Destiny / CYU
