There is little to no fruit in the harvest when we are led by our own desires. Instead, seek God, in order to be led to the lost.
Acts 16:6-9 (KJV)
6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
7 After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.
8 And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.
9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.
Oh Lord, I pray that the hearts of all believers will be awakened to You, this day. May their hearts be changed and transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit. I pray that their desires for Your kingdom may be elevated. May they understand the need to serve You and to seek out the lost, as we are each called to do. Surely, there are many people that You have prepared, but only few messengers in Your harvest to reach them. Each weekend, that I go out on the streets, I am often either alone or with one or two other people. However, there are swarms of people on the streets that we cannot reach because of this. Our intentions are good but there are so few of us to preach the gospel to everyone. This is very sad, and for that reason, I pray that a revival will stir up in every believers heart, starting today. May they be given the courage and the necessary boldness to also be a witness for You, Jesus. And when more people decide to go out and be a witness for You, I pray that it is to seek Your hand and not do their own will. I know that we can only have divine appointments when it is in Your will and not our own. This is when You are with us and the Holy Spirit is able to speak through us. In these moments, I am able to speak the truth of God with conviction. Lord, I pray that others will also have these experiences and not find themselves uncomfortable, because the Spirit is not present. For this reason I pray that people will get right before You. May they repent and allow You to change them from within, that they may be Your vessel. This I pray, in Your holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
The new disciples that were with Paul, were excited to go with him. They wanted to serve the Lord and seek out the Lost along the way. Continue Reading
