As I got up to pray this morning, my heart was so burdened for the ones who read the posts on His Kingdom Prophecy (HKP).
Then I thought of several, from other countries, and situations that many are in. They have tremendous troubles and trials even on this site.
Also some are enduring serious persecutions, for the stand they have taken!
In America still we are not suffering as badly as others, yet. It moves me with compassion for all the people in the different Countries!
Some may not have commented to me personally, but I have read other people’s posts. It breaks my heart to hear some of their Prayer Requests on HKP.
It goes without saying, our own family, friends and acquaintances may read what we write, also.
Do we know yet (really know) we shall be held ‘accountable’ for how we lead others? Do we really get it?
Always, this speaks to me first. It puts The Fear of God in me!
What struck me was, as Ministers of The Gospel, the ‘delicate lives’ we often hold in our hands. People sometimes are on the very brink of despair!
Some are desperate for someone to even listen to them.
Just to know, I feel I fall so short of where I want to be. Still the bottom line is, I want to reach higher and help someone else.
A very great responsibility lies with us leaders!
As I have called out several in Prisons who were ‘leaders’ over the years. This was my question to certain ones,
“Which Way are you going to lead?”
There are only 2 ways to lead. You going to lead in the right direction or the wrong direction!
They for the most part in Prisons, have been thrown away by society, and someone needs to visit/ and or write them. That is not my main point here.
As we all need to just abide in the calling where we are called.
“Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.” 1 Corinthians 7:20.
The Main Point here is about being ‘faithful’ to seriously give it our all!
Am I talking to anyone specific? A big emphatic No! This message is just strong on my heart and will speak to whomever needs it.
What is this Gospel we preach? Is it just a fairy-tale — or is it really real to us?
Do we hear His very heartbeat and want more of Him? If we do then we are not too popular, or I’m not. We shall suffer persecution! Still I’d rather have Jesus.
“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Matthew 16:26.
Closing with a song and the Words I heard from that ‘Still Small Voice’ of The LORD, as I awoke this morning.
“In the stillness of the night I have called many of you and you would not come. Now what? My Hands of Mercy and Compassion are stretched out to you even yet.
For I see your heart. At one time you knew me and walked in My Ways.
I AM calling you back to a closer walk, communion with Me.
Love you I do and I will draw you closer than ever before and take you back.
Well by now you may be getting familiar with some of my favorite scriptures. God bless you all.
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My Yoke is easy, and My Burden is light.” Matthew 11: 28-20.
