I truly believe that we are in a season with God where he is catapulting His people into their called positions. If you have said yes to Him, then either you have been or are going through a process of being put through the fire and purged. Our Heavenly Father in Heaven is searching for His willing vessels that will carry out His work in this hour. Everything you are going through right now is not meant to harm you, but to rather “catapult” you into your position.
I pray that you see yourself, your situations, and others around you right now through the lens of our Heavenly Fathers eyes. In Jesus name now! Amen!
Think about the process of refining a bar of gold. First the heat turns on and the gold starts melting. Then it changes to a state of liquid and eventually starts boiling. Now, at this boiling point is where we tend to say, “God where are you?”. He is right there with you. After all He did say in Deuteronomy 31:6 “So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” (NLT) So in the midst of this time, apply what this says and BELIEVE! Now, while the gold is boiling the “impurities” are rising to the top where it becomes visible. This is where our attitudes, characteristics, behaviors, etc. start showing up out of nowhere and we wonder whats happening. Well, if the impurities have surfaced, it means it time for it to go. So, you should let it go by surrendering those things to God. Finally, after the impurities are surfaced on the gold, it gets “scraped” off. There you have it, purified gold.
“6 So be truly glad.[b] There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. 7 These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. – 1 Peter 1:6-7
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.[a]Because of the joy[b] awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.3 Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people;[c] then you won’t become weary and give up.” – Hebrews 12:1-3
The harvest is ready and there is a need for workers to get in their positions. Will you go as willing and obedient vessels? This is a time to GO! Will you GO?
The Need for Workers
35 Jesus traveled through all the towns and villages of that area, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. 38 So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.” – Matthew 9:35-38
“O HEAVENLY FATHER, RIGHT NOW I ASK YOU, WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THE HARVEST, TO SEND MORE WORKERS INTO YOUR READY FIELDS NOW IN JESUS NAME! AMEN!”
So what is holding you back? You already know that you are called before you were placed in your mothers womb. You already know that He promised not to leave you or forsake you. You are called! Be strong and courageous. Go forth in faith! Once you step out in faith, the Holy Spirit will flow and take over. Trust God.
Maybe you know what your calling is and if you don’t, seek God out on it. Ask Him, “what is my position Lord? Reveal it to me.”
4 The Lord gave me this message:
5 “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.
Before you were born I set you apart
and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
6 “O Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I can’t speak for you! I’m too young!”
7 The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. 8 And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!” 9 Then the Lord reached out and touched my mouth and said,
“Look, I have put my words in your mouth!
10 Today I appoint you to stand up
against nations and kingdoms.
Some you must uproot and tear down,
destroy and overthrow.
Others you must build up
and plant.” – Jeremiah 1:4-10
Relax, lay back and allow God to take you through the refiners fire where you will be purified. At the end of it, shall be the glory of God! Let go and let Him! Do not be afraid because God wants to expand your territory.
“Enlarge your house; build an addition.
Spread out your home, and spare no expense!
3 For you will soon be bursting at the seams.
Your descendants will occupy other nations
and resettle the ruined cities. – Isaiah 54 2-3
GET READY! GET READY! GET READY! Exciting times are up ahead. Be encouraged.
