Deeper Day 234: The Harvest

As we move on from the past two days of considering the mocker and intimidator, I want to remind you of this. Many of those operating from the spirit of the mocker and intimidator are one encounter away from giving their hearts to Jesus. What if you offer that one encounter?

Then He 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

Far too many believers receive the gift of salvation and then seem to fall asleep. Knowing they will go to heaven seems to satisfy them and they leave all the rest to fend for themselves. It may sound harsh, but that’s a truly selfish mindset. We are the light of the world! We aren’t called to only think of ourselves. We are called to make disciples of every nation.

We are called to the harvest. Will you accept that call?

All of those people in the world who are quite obviously under the spell of the enemy need you. They need to hear about Jesus. If they don’t hear it from you, then who?

Who will accept the call?

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for Me?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8

I want to be like Isaiah. When God asks, “Who will go and share Me with the world?” I want to respond, “Me! I will!”

Instead of fighting those who oppose God, what if we let our lives serve as examples of His grace? What if instead of hating them, we acknowledged that they are being held captive to a spirit and need relief. What if instead of cowering to their bullying, we respond by standing firm and therefore, bringing back healthier boundaries to our world. We carry the Hope of the world! Let’s discover how to let Him be that in and through us.

Prayer Moment: God, I will go where You send me. I will serve as an example to those You desire me to. God, give me courage to not hide and instead to boldly proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am here! Send me! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:1-5

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you really knew Me, you would know My Father as well. From now on, you do know Him and have seen Him.” John 14:6-7
