Today we want to stir those who have been fasting and praying with us to step it up and step out!
Today we pray again for our ‘lost list’ … those far from God. I hope you are naming them, declaring the last few weeks of scriptures of their lives.
However we really sense today is about you doing something courageous .. not just praying for salvation .. but acting upon that prayer as if YOU are part of the solution.
The gifts of the spirit in your life are not for you . The spiritual gifts we discovered in 301 and all the gifts of the spirit found at Pentecost are a tool that will help us live as Jesus lived. He walked through life doing signs and wonders and miracles. We are called to do the same, drawing people to the Father via the supernatural. And we are all gifted to do this, because we all have the Holy Spirit. In Acts 2:17 , Peter explained the day of Pentecost by quoting the prophet Joel, “I will pour out My Spirit on all people and your sons and daughters will prophesy; your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams.” When God gave you and me the Holy Spirit, He gave us the power to witness about Jesus. Jesus said, “And you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will tell people about Me everywhere ….” (Acts 1:8 ). The Holy Spirit’s gifts are great tools for bringing people closer to Jesus and into the kingdom.
So how about asking the Holy Spirit for a word of knowledge or a prophecy, or using your gift of hospitality to serve someone far from God, or encourage another, or administrate for someone or pray for someone to be healed?
Why don’t you be the ‘answer to the prayer’ for people to know God. How will they know God until they see what He is like? How do they see what He is like? He uses YOU to reveal Him.
Go for it! We can’t wait to hear the stories!
