sheepMy flocks fill the valley…my wife is dressed to kill…no man, no king has made me rich…only the Almighty has blessed me so. My neighbors pay me homage and my servants jump to attention at the snap of my fingers. Ah…life is good! Who could wish for anything more?

And the Lord appeared to Abram in a vision, “Abram, I am your shield and exceeding great reward.”Blurred christmas lights
And the Lord waited. Would Abram remind Him of the promised child? Would Abram stretch for more or would he sit back, count his money, and take shoppingSarah shopping?

 

No! From the depths of his anguished soul Abram cried out, “Lord God, what will you give me seeing I go childless and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? There’s a longing in me…I want more…a legacy. I want to leave an imprint on the world.”

Some might judge, “What’s the matterpointing 2 with you, Abram? You’re in retirement. Life is easy. Have a baby? Reach for new dreams…at your age? Can’t you be content just being rich? You’re too old!”
The world will never understand the passionate longing that burns like fire in the bosom of a child who senses the Almighty calling him deeper calling him to go further.

“Dream big, Abram. The stars you cannot count are the number of your seed which will come from your own bowels. And all nations will be blessed because you believed.”

One man wouldn’t let go of God’s promise. One man chose not to slip behind his newspaper, sipping coffee while the coffee makes me happyworld swirled out of control. One man made an eternal impact when a Savior was presented to the nations!

My sister, do you sense a stirring in your soul, a yearning for something more? Is there yet a craving within that calls you to dream again,  and ask God to give you  the heathen for your inheritance? Do you cry out as Abraham, “Lord what will you give me?”

Be encouraged! God has given you a field—a harvest. You’re not too young— not too old.

The enemy will assail you with doubt. He will endeavor to belittle your qualifications. Satan trembles, and in fear He will circle the wagons in a feeble attempt to shut your mouth, dear lioness.

Jesus in heavenBut the hunger in your soul to leave a legacy is not a fairy tale. It comes from God! Please give it heed. Jesus is calling your name! He is returning soon. Jesus—is even—at the door.

      Thank you, Pastor Tina! And you can do just that…ask what your heart longs for and decree and declare God’s written word over it. After all, the desire in your heart comes from the Lord. Ask and it shall be given unto YOU!

      Thank you my dear Jo. Your comment is a breath from the Holy Spirit. But I do feel this sense of urgency to ask God for more…ask Him for the heathen…ask Him to send us and alert us to the harvests before us. Truly Jesus is returning soon and there is a wave of revival that even now it being felt around the world! You response confirms this for yes, Christians world wide are entering a new era just before the great a final day of the Lord!
