Call to Go (Southeast Asia)

IMG_3013

I remember now why I do not take showers in the morning in Asia. The bone-chilling cold water should be reserved for after sweating all day in the heat. However, I am truly awake now as I write this.  This is just one of the few things when God has called us to go, we must give up to say yes.

Your will, your way, your wants and desires are always difficult to give up. “I want it my way.” You may not ever say it out loud, but this is the way you are. I know this, because this is the way I am.  Graciously, the Lord granted me several confirmations that this was a trip I was supposed to be on. I do not often get such clear direction and continually receive confirmation I am supposed to go. I usually just give Him my Yes out of faith.

After the 30+ hours of travel, I can say thank the Lord for giving me the ability to say Yes. Sitting on a plane for any extended amount of time is physically uncomfortable, to put it mildly. However, for me, it has always been hard to sleep so it becomes that much more difficult. But none of this matters because I have said Yes to Jesus and His call for me to go. Unfamiliar places, faces, food, accommodations… None of this really matters for I have given my whole-hearted Yes to Jesus and His way.  

The people here are worth it because He loves them. Even more than that, He is worth it and I love Him!!! Right now, in your life, what is of the greatest value? What do you love the most? What would you hold on to if everything else was stripped away? What if God called you to give that up to Go for Him?  Could you do it? 

My prayer for you is that you hear the call of the Lord to Go and that you say as Isaiah did, “Here I am, send Me!!! No matter the cost, no matter the price I will follow You and say Yes!!!” Jesus is worth flying to the other side of the world and giving up so much! In the same way, He is worth it to lay down your fear, pride, selfishness, to walk next door, up the street, down the fruit aisle… Or wherever else He may have you. He is worth it to give all that You have to speak His good news!!! He gave first, and He gave His best for you.

What do you have to give the Creator of the Universe??? 

I give You my, Yes and my obedience!!! Here I am!!! Send Me!!!

Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Changing History

Daily Encouragement –

What have you done with your life? Who has benefitted? How have you affected history? 

Most people are only concerned with surviving themselves and give little thought to others. This is never who you were designed to be. Come to Me! I am The King of kings who laid down His life willingly so that the whole world may live! My sacrifice was for far more than Me and my people. I died for all nations and all people, no matter how dejected, forgotten, or broken, that they may become part of The Kingdom!  

Everyone deserves the opportunity to see and know the Truth! Come to me! I will give you everything you need to boldly proclaim the good news of The Kingdom and exhibit it’s power. All nations and people must not only hear, but see the Truth coming forth that they may see, consider, and come to be a part of The Everlasting Kingdom! This is how you will change eternity! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 52:15 “So shall He sprinkle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him; For what had not been told them they shall see, And what they had not heard they shall consider.”

Never Crushed

Daily Encouragement – 

Is life weighing you down? Do you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders? Are you burdened with the worry and troubles of this world?  

Come to Me! I am The Lord Almighty!!! I am Strong and Mighty to save! Only I can truly deliver you from your burdens! You must let them go and give them to Me!

Do you realize I have carried you and helped you before you were even able to know Me? Now that you are older and wiser, you feel like you must make it on your own. However, you need Me now more than ever before!!! The world wants to crush you under its weight, cares, and troubles. 

Come to Me and I will free you from the oppression and weight! Only I have the true peace, joy, strength, and life that you really want and need. Come to Me and receive all that you need and more in abundance. I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 46:3-5 “Who have been upheld by Me from birth, Who have been carried from the womb: Even to your old age, I am He, And even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliver you. “To whom will you liken Me, and make Me equal And compare Me, that we should be alike?”

Vs. 9 “For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me,”

Out of the Pit

Daily Encouragement –

Do you feel like you are missing something? Is something trying to hold you back and drag you down? Do you feel lifeless and powerless where you are? 

I am the Deliverer and Bringer of True Life!!! I am the One Who sets free, saves, and gives you a reason to praise Me!!! I do not set you free for personal gain, but because you are in bondage and need help. I love you completely and desire for you to walk in complete freedom. 

I will pull you out of your pit as you call out to Me. True repentance causes Me to discard and disregard your sin no matter the grievance. The blood of Jesus truly takes away the corrupt sin that would cause you to drown in death. Jesus paid the price for you that you may come close and receive all the fullness of life I have for you. 

Come to Me and receive true freedom. Walk in life, and praise The One Who made the way for you to live. I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 38:17, 19 “Indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back… 
The living, the living man, he shall praise You, As I do this day; The father shall make known Your truth to the children.”

Overtaking Blessing

Daily Encouragement –

What are you doing with your life? Are you a blessing to everyone and everything you come into contact with? Or are you a troubled, disgraced, broken-down blight, and curse to anyone who comes near you? You were never designed to be the latter! 

When you come to Me, you will walk into your eternal destiny in Me! It will not always be easy, but it will be right and you will be blessed!!! My blessings will hunt you down and overcome you as you continually, faithfully follow Me!!!

Because of this, you are able to glorify Me whether you are going through good times or bad. These things do not matter. What matters is that you are following Me! 

As you follow Me, sooner or later, My blessings will spring upon you and even from within you and cause you to walk deeper into your divine destiny than ever before!!! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 24:5 “The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, Because they have transgressed the laws, Changed the ordinance, Broken the everlasting covenant”

V. 15 “Therefore glorify the Lord in the dawning light, The name of the Lord God of Israel in the coastlands of the sea.

Deuteronomy 28:1-2 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God:”

Faithful to Save

Daily Encouragement –

Are you feeling broken down, discouraged, or weak? Is there fear in your life? Do you need help?

Come to Me! I am the God of salvation! I am strong, mighty, and faithful to save! I have defeated the enemy over and over again and cannot be overcome!

You do not have to be perfectly strong. Come to Me and receive My perfect strength! Come and know the great things I have done, am doing, and will do! Speak forth the Truth and even shout the victory I have accomplished for you and those around you. As you do this, it releases power for Me to do more and greater in your life! 

I have the water you desperately need to be rested, encouraged, and strengthened. Come to Me, with joy, and receive all that you need today! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 12:2-3 “Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’ ”Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation.”

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Power, Ability, Strength and More!!!

Daily Encouragement –

What do you see around you- problems, distractions, worries? Do you know all you need to walk through these things? Do you feel weak and powerless in certain areas of your life? 

Come to Me! I have all you need ready to give to you freely! I have given My Spirit to rest upon you and live in you. Receive Him and the help He has to give. 

Holy Spirit brings knowledge and wisdom for every situation. He will reveal what you need and how you need to do it. He gives power, ability, and strength to carry out all these things in the right way. He gives the ability to come to Me and truly know Me because of Jesus. 

You can continue to do things your own way, with what you see and know, in your own strength just like the rest of the world, but why would you want to? Why would you want to be broken down, exhausted, angry, and depressed? 

Come to Me and receive joy, strength, power, and rest. I have all these things and more to give freely as you come to Me. I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 11:2 “The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.”
