Here’s your dose of inspiration for the week.
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:37-38
The Lord sets many doors of opportunities before us and He want’s us to join Him in His work.
Jesus went through all the town and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. Matthew 9:35
Observe what is going on around you, ministry is not just for Sunday morning, the pastor or the deacons in the church. Opportunities to show the light and love of Christ is all around us. In the marketplace, the grocery store, the mall, post office, or the streets. People are searching for hope and looking for answers to today’s societal woes.
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Matthew 9:36
Listen to what the Holy Spirit saying, He is our helper.
“These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” John 14:25-26
We often question ourselves “is the Lord speaking to me?” When we are quiet before Him we’re able hear what He is speaking to our hearts. Write down what the Lord is saying to you and pray for wisdom and guidance then take action; faith without works is dead!
The harvest is ripe and many doors are being left open. What has the Lord charged you to do? He’s beseeching us to join in His work. Will you answer the call?
Prayer: Father God, you have open several doors that have been left open. Help me to take advantage and be more aware of those opportunities when they arise. Sharpen my ears to listen and my mind to comprehend what you are saying that I may be obedient when I hear your voice. I want to be a kingdom builder joining you in your work. In Jesus Name~Amen!
Have a blessed week!
