  • The Lord was moving

    oh yeah,

    she felt His presence

     

    as she stood in the midst

    God was speaking through His man servant

    who said come, for whatever you need

    lifting her head from prayer

    she watched souls in need

    flock to the altar

    as if she needed nothing

    one by one, they went

    and with each passing second she stood

    still …

    becoming a spectator

     

    lovingly nudged by the Holy Spirit

    her trembling body

    pushed its way past her row mates

     

    with clasped hands

    and tears streaming

    whew!

    she was so glad she made it

     

    she felt like the woman who bled for 12 straight years

    and the centurion who said “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.” [Matthew 8:9]

     

    just like them

    she was not taking no for an answer now

    because she too, needed much

    likely like you and I

     

    she needed assurance

    she needed to feel His touch

    she needed forgiveness

    she too, needed so very much

    but … she was almost willing to be a spectator only

    with mis-directed hope

     

    So, this is her whisper to us

     

    beloved

    your change will not happen standing on the sidelines

    with hope nestled in your side pockets

     

    beloved

    your change will not happen if you convince yourself that Gods promises are not for you

     

    beloved

    your change will not happen if you can not forgive yourself and forgive others

     

    beloved

    your change will not happen if you can not rise up and expect change

     

    beloved

    your change will not happen if you stand watching and waiting like a spectator

     

    you must take a few steps

    you must walk in hope

    you must have faith

    even if it is the size of a mustard seed

     

    and

    beloved

    you must trust Him with the rest!

     

    “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:16-18 NKJV
