I have a request. If you are willing, say a prayer for me right now and ask our Father in heaven in the name of Jesus to intensely guide my steps over the next few days, weeks, and months. Doors are opening and I need to know which ones to take. Praise Him for all His compassion and comfort He alone has brought me over the last several months and praise Him for the opportunities He has brought me also. I believe I am being lead towards leadership in ministry (and many other areas as well!) so please remember me when you seek the Master’s counsel.
Fight the good fight, keep me in your prayers, comment or message me if you have wisdom you would like to share also.
The Word from God for me tonight, and how I know He wants me to ask this of you is in this:
“My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine. My son, DO NOT DESPISE THE LORD’S DISCIPLINE or BE WEARY HIS REPROOF, for the Lord REPROVES WHOM HE LOVES, as a father the son in whom he delights.” Proverbs 3
Also, “Every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.“ 2 Corinthians 13:1 I was going to stop there since this is where my conviction is for seeking counsel, but now I must continue, for your sake it seems. I feel the pull and I will not squelch the Spirit when it Burns like this.“I already gave you a warning when I was with you the second time. I now repeat it while absent: On my return I will not spare those who sinned earlier or any of the others, since you are demanding proof that Christ is speaking through me. He is not weak in dealing with you, but is powerful in you. For to be sure, He was crucified in weakness, yet He lives by God’s power. Likewise, we are weak in Him, yet by God’s power we will live with him in our dealing with you. EXAMINE YOURSELVES to see whether you are in the faith; TEST YOURSELVES. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you-unless, of course, you fail the test? And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test. Now we pray to God that you will do no wrong-not so that people will see that we have stood the test but so that you will do what is right even though we may seem to have failed. For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth. We are glad whenever we are weak but you are strong; and OUR PRAYER IS THAT YOU MAY BE FULLY RESTORED. This is why I write these things when I am absent, that when I come I may not have to be harsh in my use of authority-the AUTHORITY THE LORD GAVE ME FOR BUILDING YOU UP, NOT TEARING YOU DOWN. Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. All God’s people here send their greetings. MAY THE GRACE OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THE LOVE OF GOD, AND THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BE WITH YOU ALL.” 2 Corinthians 13:2-14
Thank you brothers and sisters.
Grace and Peace,
