Hands and Feet.....I'll Go Where You Send Me

Isn't it amazing when God revelates something to you. Do you not get this overwhelming feeling that you are special. We are special to him and He wants to revelate his word to us always remember that.

For the past few weeks I have been thinking about mission trips and missionaries and so on. I have been thinking about all the wonderful things that these brave people are doing for the Lord! The courage that it takes to to say "I am going to pack up my things and go to India to minister to people that need to hear the word of God" blows me away. There is no way in this world that I could do that (1) because I hate flying...terrified! (2) because I hate flying!!! I don't see myself going and doing those things...I truly do not feel that calling on my life. Thank God for people that do. I really believe that God has a special blessing for those who go "the distance" to share the gospel and I would like to personally say Thank YOU!

However, God revealed something to Anthony Sellers that has change the way that I think a little bit. There is so many missionaries for 3rd world countries but there really isn't any "true" missionaries for this area. There is a ton of hurting people in our very communities yet we overlook them. They are hungry, lost, unhappy, alone, whatever it may be. They need someone! So I have made a commitment to myself and to the Lord that while others work so hard in other countries sharing the gospel, I will work hard in our communities to share the gospel. There is a large mission field right in our back door and religion has shut that door so they don't have to look at it. Well I'm not gonna set by and watch I wanna do something for the Lord. Actually let me rephrase that, I am gonna do what the Lord commanded. Matthew 28:19-20 says Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." I have a heart to see the people that have been cast aside to be brought back. If Jesus had a heart for all the lost and hurting people in the world shouldn't we? even the neighbors that no body likes. There is an overlooked mission field right before our eyes. Religion has gotta get out of the way. Why? Because Jesus is coming!

May God Bless You Richly

My thanks also to missionaries. My prayer for you. Go forth before the Lord in the spirit & power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to children, & the disobedient to wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
