My Bother-in-Law leaves in the morning for the mission field, with his family to follow in just a few weeks. God has called them to the foreign mission field and I ask that you remember them as you pray God’s will be done on Earth as it is in heaven.
God gives everyone a different passion or calling…everyone that is born-again. God may have given you a heart for seniors, or maybe He has given you a heart for kids. Whatever your burden or passion, the bottom line is, don’t wait for the pastor to join you, don’t wait for your best friend to join you, don’t wait for anyone else, start today fulfilling your calling, in love, before you wake up one day and realize your life is far spent and time has been waisted. Even if it is just a small step, at least it is a step. That may be exactly what God is waiting for you to do; take one step toward your calling and then He will open up the gates…or maybe the door to the next step.
Repeat after me; “I am a child of God”. If you are born-again, then you are a child of God. Do you know what that means? As I travel to different churches in our area, I am forced to wonder if many really do know what that means. It means that we need to stop moping around thinking and saying we are unworthy, miserable sinners. I know that some people sincerely think they are being humble before God if they mope around that way, but if we are living depressed and thinking we are nothing but an unworthy miserable sinner, then what we are really saying is that the blood of Jesus Christ is not good enough to cleanse us of all unrighteousness and that He lied when He said we are MADE the righteousness of God IN Him.
There is being humble by admitting we know we live and move and have our being by His power. We humble ourselves by admitting it is by His power and His might that we stand victorious. We are humble by admitting that we take dominion and exercise power, not by our authority, but by the authority we have only in the name of Jesus Christ.
I challenge you today to stand in the authority of Jesus Christ and in His name rebuke the spirits of defeat, oppression, depression, and any other spirit that is contrary to the Spirit of the living God, that may be trying to come against you. If you are a child of God, then you do not have to stand for it. Half the church today is taking proscription medicine for things that just need to be cast out. (Yes, I said it) “Well Bro. Kyle, I just don’t believe all that stuff”. Well there you go, now put 2 and 2 together. You don’t believe – you won’t receive , so I will go ahead and tell you, you are just going to stay stuck in whatever you’re dealing with. It’s a hard truth but it is a truth the church needs to wake up to in these last days.
Now, take authority in Jesus name and act on your calling, fulfill your God-given destiny. Be a missionary where you live today!
What does God have for you…just around the corner?
