What’s Today’s Witness? 28FEB
Yesterday morning I could not have imagined what by yesterday evening my witnesses from the Lord would be… there were MANY.
I wonder what today’s witness will be.
I have many witnesses from yesterday, this past week.. I knew the Lord would send them… He did… He does…
And I have many prayer requests, too many to mention, some private and some public, my prayer and praise is that THE LORD KNOWS ALL. Prayers and praise are the clouds of witnesses billowing up and around the world. Thank you for prayers and praise all around.
Let me tell you about one specific amazing witness – I am trying to regather an Emmaus gathering group – I met a man at my gathering meeting who had over 200 surgeries! I looked at the tears in his eyes, rehydrating his jar of clay so the hands of the Lord could keep spinning him thru life. I heard the truth of his witness. I saw his knowledge of saving grace. 200 surgeries, wow… Not all major surgeries, but over a hundred of those, wowza…. wow… I sat in witness to him saying: “The Lord needs me around for some reason”…
We are called to continually be a seeker of fellow travelers (in this world but not of this world), who manage to scrape off the trappings of darkness, to see enough LIGHT for HOPE, even in tough times. We get to meet new people who are old souls and we connect in the soulful way – in support of each other. In witness.
Even those who don’t know the Lord will witness that a force larger than themselves exists.
Even people who don’t know the Lord can know HOPE… stage 1…
Seeking people who know HOPE can seek LIGHT…
People following the LIGHT will see the Lord…
People knowing the Lord will want to start following the Lord.
People following the Lord will witness all their blessings as they travel.
Witnesses to the Lord will hunger to be fed.
Fuel from the Lord is an opportunity to tell others where to be fed.
Feeding others is the continuation or sometimes the BEGINNING of their HOPE…
Be a witness today, be increasers of their HOPE.
Tell of the HOPE over the horrors. Tell of the praise over the paranoia. Tell of the LIGHT over the darkness. Tell of the Lord’s intervention.
Tell the stories of witnesses…
Witness to others.
Be the one whom the Lord sends as a messenger.
“If we did not praise, the rocks would cry out.”
2nd Corinthians 12
From Paul: Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows. And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows— was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. I will boast about a man like that….
2nd Corinthians 4
5 For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
