Hi guys, I hope you guys are blessed and highly favored of the Lord today! I have been gone since December, and I am finally back to stay in Jesus name! (Haha). You know I think part of the reason why I stopped is because I didn’t feel like I was qualified for this. I felt as though I didn’t have it together enough to write or be a “mommy apostolic christian blogger” but will I ever be qualified? or will there ever be a moment where I go ah-HA! yes now’s the time! the answer is: No, absolutely not. There will never be a perfect moment, a perfect time or mood to be like “okay, yes now’s the moment. GO!” the truth is there will never be that. The Lord calls us to be us or to show our unique callings he has placed in every single one of us at our worst moments but HIS BEST timing for us! Hallelujah! that we serve a God that sees the beginning from the end before we even see it! the bible says in Isaiah 46:9-11 (NKJV):
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.
He knows everything we do before we even do it haha! Praise God that he is always there in the midst of our failures, in the middle of our sets backs, our sadness, our joy and victories!
I want to encourage somebody today, inspired by a devotional that’s called “When Christ Calls by Barron Longstreth” on the Truth radio app I have downloaded (highly recommend, very encouraging) he was giving the example of David in the bible. How David was never told specifically by God to go and fight Goliath, David just went with faith from God. The bible says David was explaining to Saul how he was very capable of going and defeating Goliath he says in 1 Samuel 17:34 (NKJV):
34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, 35 I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. 36 Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God.” 37 Moreover David said, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.”
He didn’t wait to hear an audible voice from God saying go to this event and kill him, or something very specific to do. He just went forth and did it in faith knowing that he wasn’t going to let anyone talk about our living God like that! He knew that God was going to have his back regardless because he was doing it in his name! In the name of the Lord! (1 Samuel 17:45 NKJV): 45 Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
He went to the field and defeated Goliath because somebody was calling from the field! In brother Barron’s message, he said: “The harvest is truly plenteous but the laborers are few, we need your permission, Jesus. You may not say go or be calling me out there. But if you give me permission I will go.”
Voices are calling out in the field, the voices of souls hurting, help needed, wounded individuals. People that need us, that are desperate for a word of hope or encouragement, of LIFE with JESUS. What has God called you to be for somebody? what do we have yet to take before him to accomplish it? Is it witnessing, making videos, talking to your neighbor down the street? What is it? I encourage you to talk to the Lord about it today. You may not receive an audible voice “go” but I believe if we go out in faith to respond to the voices in the field that are calling. He will be there to help us and encourage us through it ALL!
You are called, you are chosen, you are a miraculous child of God.
God bless you all today, I hope this helped you in any way, and until next time. God bless you might-fully!
