So much to do, so little time. Ever felt overwhelmed with the task at hand? If you could only have more time, just extend the deadline by an hour, a day. Jesus felt like this when he knew his end was near. He literally downloaded everything he possibly could into the ones who served him faithfully.
Today, we live as if we had all the time in the world but my friends, we are not of this world but citizens of the Kingdom of God and our commission is to go into all the world and preach. Mark 16:15-18 says; And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
What is your world? Where have you been commissioned? I’ve always taught my girls that God is preparing them for the place He has commissioned them to be for his plans and purposes. It’s not about making money, although it’s nice, it’s about that one person who’s been crying out for answers you have stored inside of you. It’s about souls, it always has been, it always will be.
When we lose the ‘me’ mentality and get the ‘them’ vision, we will make the journey with sure steps because we’ll be following in HIS footsteps not our own. When he sent them, he gave specific instructions to not take anything with them, just the Word, (Matthew 10:7-10) he would take care of the rest. Our life is a journey with the King, keep your light bright so that when you get to the end you will hear the words, “Well done!”
Father, for that one who is waiting for truth, a miracle, may I forever be watchful and ready to deliver the Word needed. I’m not in my job to earn a living because You have supplied everything I will ever need for this life. I’m in my job because of the people who come in needing hope. I’m Your hope carrier to others. Thank You Lord for the opportunity to be what You called me out to be. Jesus, I will do greater works than you did because You went to the Father and constantly intercede for me. It’s in Your name I pray these things, Amen.
