Mark 4:14,20 – “The sower sows the Word. And those sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the Word and receive and accept and welcome it and bear fruit – some thirty times as much as was sown, some sixty times as much, and some even a hundred times as much.”
Jesus didn’t spend time trying to get men out of poverty. He got the poverty out of them and they did the rest.
If Christ were here today, He wouldn’t move people out of the slums…He’d simply get the slums out of them. Their new inner image would eventually change their surroundings to match the new prosperous image on the inside.
GOD’S WAY OF CHANGING MY WORLD IS BY FIRST CHANGING MY SELF-IMAGE THROUGH HIS WORD AND THE WORK OF HIS SPIRIT ON THE INSIDE OF ME.
TODAY I CONFESS GOD’S PROMISES – I AM SOWING THE SEED OF HIS WORD INTO THE SOIL OF MY HEART WHERE IT WILL BEGIN TO DEVELOP AND BRING TO PASS WHAT I HAVE SPOKEN.
Matthew 5:4 – “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”
Jesus was talking about the mourning of the intercessor. He was teaching about the comfort that comes to the intercessor when He is assured by the Holy Spirit that He has prayed through.
To pray through means to break through the barriers that have stopped the work of God in the lives of others. It means using your spiritual armor to push back the forces of darkness that surrounds them.
AS A PRAYER WARRIOR FOR GOD I REACH OUT FOR HIS MERCY AND COMPASSION FOR THE SINNER, FOR THE SICK, AND FOR THE DOWNCAST.
I DON’T LET UP UNTIL I HAVE THE ASSURANCE INSIDE, IN MY SPIRIT, THAT EVERY BARRIER IS BROKEN AND EVERY AREA OF BONDAGE HAS BEEN ABOLISHED.
As soon as Paul saw the light from heaven above the brightness of the sun, he said, “Lord what wilt thou have me to do?” – Acts 19:6
God wants to charge our faith today. He wants us to see it is not obtained by struggling and working and pining. “…the Father himself loveth you…” (John 16:27) “..Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses” (Matthew 8:17). “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:18).
May we lay hold of this living faith today — the Blood has never lost its power — as we get nearer and nearer to Jesus wonderful things will take place. The baptism of Jesus must bring us to have a single eye to the glory of God; everything else is wasted time and wasted energy.
The Holy Spirit wants us for the purpose of manifesting Jesus through us. The Holy Spirit moving upon us will make us to be like Him, and we will truly say, “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?”
