This last month I been feeling like the Lord has been shifting a lot of things within my personal life and also His church. He has been changing my perspective on the way I saw many things recently. Just last month I wasn’t thinking this way, but when we hear the Lord speak and listen; everything can literally change from one day to another. There’s many things I pray I wish I was able to do but understand that I don’t have the luxury to do it. What I mean by that is I have a family. I’m a mother of 2 small children and a wife and something as beautiful like missionary work is something I will need to pray really hard about.Why I say this? Most missionary work are very time consuming and could involve a lot of financial support; that a mother of two probably can’t afford in either money or time. Missionary work has always had a place in my heart and God reminded me again how I can still love it as much as I do in the season I’m in at the moment. I might not be able to go on trips or afford to physically go myself, but I love it enough to invest on those who can go at the moment until God opens the doors for me to go myself. Financially I can help someone and be part of others journey and experience missionary work from afar. Missionary stories are always touching and even life changing, so for right now Im happy that the Lord has given me a job to help others go and spend the gospel and be part of it in some way.
What I’m trying to say with all this? Many times we have these desires in God’s kingdom that we can’t do at the moment. Our hearts desire it and we have a passion for it but our season just hasn’t open that door up for us. However if God has put something in your heart for His kingdom don’t let it go just because its not you physically going and doing it. Support what the Lord has placed in your heart until it’s you doing it. You will reap what you sow, it’s a promise He made us all. Even if its something small like picking up people and taking them to service. Maybe God has called you to be a pastor but hasn’t open the doors to the building in which you will establish your own congregation. However you being as supportive as you can to your current pastor will teach you everything you need when its your turn to run toward it. You need to invest in what you have been called into, even if it’s not your turn to work within it. Like the example of the transporter picking up people to take to church; that process will teach you how to fellowship and built relationship. That process will show you what city and location is in need of a temple. Invest in where God has called you to, even if its not your turn.
The best Christmas gift I could have ever gotten this year was supporting those that have similar callings. Seeing how much they were able to impact and bring joy, peace and love; made me have to cry in the presence of the Lord. I had to let tears flow out of me because I have seen how much my little bit contribute to a big amount , in order to give and help spread the news. The Lord remains us in Hebrews 6:10 that “God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you helped his people and continue to help them.” Whatever God has called you to , you will one day be doing it. FOR YOU WERE CALLED AND MUST FULFILL IT! In John 20:21 Jesus repeats and remains us “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” YOU WILL BE SEND WHEN GOD BELIEVES IT’S YOUR TURN TO GO! During the mean time work in what you can do. In Matthew 9:37 Jesus remains his disciples “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.” Work! Don’t believe the enemy when he tells you something is too far or too much, so there’s no point in investing! He’s a liar and if God said it, He will do it! Begin today and be joyful! Understand that you’re part of a huge movement that couldn’t move if it wasn’t for your support! Support today and invest today, for one day people will support and invest in you. God knows all our desires and works in mysteries ways. BELIEVE IN HIM! BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD. THE SAME GOD THAT HEARS YOUR PRAYERS WILL ANSWER THEM ONE DAY SOON! WHATEVER YOU DO IN THE LORD’S PRESENCES WILL NEVER BE TAKEN IN VAIN.
Blessings brothers and sisters!
