The Importance of The One (Southeast Asia)

I have been back in the states for a few days now, but it is still almost unreal where I have gone and what God has done with me. For me, a normal person who said “Yes, I will follow”, it is almost unbelievable what God has done. After a week, 10 teams of three and four came back with an offering to the Lord of 4,612 souls. This is not including the healing, encouragement, and freedom that was ministered to countless people, churches, and other organizations. I praise God that I was able to contribute an offering to give glory to His name!!!

As I think back to some of the most powerful encounters with what God did over the trip, I am reminded of the importance of stopping for the one. All throughout Scripture, Jesus is teaching and ministering to large crowds of people, but is frequently interrupted by the one. One person needs some special attention, healing, freedom, or salvation. When this happens, Jesus does not ignore them and continue on to minister to the crowd, but gives them as much love, compassion, and care as the large crowds. He takes the time to minister to the one. 

Even though we literally saw thousands of people come to know the Lord, the most powerful times were when God brought the one. The time I felt the most powerful move of God was for one person. God orchestrated things for me to preach at an evening service in a large church. The pastor of this church had some personal problems, but had still invited me to come and speak. Before even going, I was told not to expect anyone to come forward for an invitation time because it was culture for them to commit to follow Jesus later during a personal meeting with the pastor.

As I worshipped, I felt the presence of God in a mighty way, and as I spoke the word, I was experiencing part of His heart of compassion for the people. Although it has rarely happened, God moved me to tears as I called for His lost sons and daughters to come to their Good Father. No one moved, but I knew I was here for this purpose so I continued to press in. After some time, one lone girl in pink came down and knelt at the altar. She broke the cultural expectations, in front of over 100 people, and courageously came to The Good Father. Not too long after that three more came. I was so overcome, I could not even lead them in a prayer, but left that to the translator to do. As I went down and prayed for each one, the floor was wet with the tears of the this teenage girl. She remained there weeping for the whole ministry time as we prayed for the sick. Afterwards, the over abundance of joy that was exuding out of her was evidence that she had been changed. This is why I was there, for this one girl. The others were just a bonus from God for my obedience.

You may not be called at this moment to go and evangelize on a street corner to dozens of people or preach in a church or conference to hundreds or thousands. However, you are called to the one who does not know. One neighbor, family member, friend, or co-worker is who you are called to speak to. One cashier needs to hear the Truth. One worker in a store has been prepared to receive. One person at the park is hurting and in need. That is who you are called to no matter who you are.

I encourage you today, begin to look around you for the one who is hurting, lost, in need. Pray for them, then open your mouth and speak the truth that is in you. As you are faithful to shine the light that is in you, God will be faithful to bring more to you. Never forget, at one time, you were the one that needed someone to speak the truth to you and to be shown the heart of a Good Father. May God bless you to be the one to minister His heart to the one today, this week, and for the rest of your life!!!

Matthew 18:14 So it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones be lost. 

Isaiah 64:4 For since the beginning of the world Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him.

Infinite Increase

Daily Encouragement –

Are you surrounded by unfavorable circumstances? Do hurts and troubles plague your life? Do you have hope that all these things will someday change for your better?

I am the Lord, Maker of all things!!! I have redeemed you from the pit and called you to The Kingdom! Come to Me!!! 

If you can look to Me, trust in Me, and give glory to My name in the midst of your trouble, you can be sure that change is coming! You may be ridiculed, hurt, and broken; but as you come to Me, I will restore, strengthen, and exalt you beyond your expectations! You were never made to be lying in the dirt getting trampled by the world. 

Come to Me and prepare for the infinite increase in The Kingdom that is your inheritance!!! You are coming into this and so much more as you come to Me!!! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 54:1-3 “Sing, O barren, You who have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, You who have not labored with child! For more are the children of the desolate Than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord. “Enlarge the place of your tent, And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, And your descendants will inherit the nations, And make the desolate cities inhabited.”

😭😭😭 We met this beautiful family four years ago while we were in Aizawl and partnered with them in pioneering the first Burn 24/7 there. Even then, the presence of the Lord was so precious and honored and I was forever changed by the atmosphere that was released there. The sound of their worship still resonates in my ears and I can see their adoration displayed when I close my eyes as if it is a fresh memory. May we all be like these who still praise in the darkest of nights, no matter the cost. 😭😭😭

WORSHIP AT HIS SONS FUNERAL 😭😭
.
This is my fiend Zaia leading worship at his 1-year-old sons funeral held at his home (according to tradition) yesterday in Northeast India. ❤️❤️❤️
.
After battling several sudden & complex diseases, his beautiful son Chris (a twin) graduated into eternity with Jesus last week in spite of an avalanche of prayer for a miracle.
.
.
These are the moments that expose the RAWNESS and REALNESS of our worship. Zaia has gathered the community for years to 24-hour burns and built an amazing movement in his city. Now they all watch his response in his darkest hour. .
.
I’m too weepy on the plane now to write anything else except my profound love for his family and the grit they have shown to never turn their worship off. Leading a movement like this can be beyond exasperating, but these moments wreck my life.
As we all contended for a miracle the last few weeks, Zaia told me the Lord asked him: “Will you still praise me if the miracle you ask for us not granted?” .
.
His response is evident and we’re all witnesses.
.
THANK YOU ZAIA FOR THE TESTIMONY OF YOUR LIFE. We love you and praying for your family.

My Way

Daily Encouragement –

Do you feel like you are fighting an uphill battle? Do you always seem to go against the grain and rub people the wrong way? Do you have seemingly unnecessary struggles and difficulties in daily life? 

I am The Almighty God!!! Come to Me and walk in the way I have prepared for you! My way is the only way of true peace, life, and strength. Any other way will be a struggle because you are trying to make your own way. 

My way is not the easiest, but it is the right way. I have gone before you in the way and truly walk beside you to help in all things. I will never leave you alone, but I am here to strengthen and guide you in The Way! 

I have called you by name to walk into My Kingdom together with Me. Why would you struggle and fight just to go your own way and do your own thing? I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 45:2-3 ‘I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron. 
I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I [am] the Lord, Who call you by your name,

Return, Rest, Be Blessed!!!

Daily Encouragement –

How are things going in your life? Have you built a life for yourself? Do you have all you want or are you ready to give up? 

Come to Me! Come to Me! Come to Me! Over and over again you must come to Me! You are continually getting pulled away from Me by the things of the world you let into your life. 

I desire you to be saved not enslaved! I want you to be strengthened not destroyed! I seek for you a blessing in every area of your life not destruction as the world does. You cannot receive all these good things from Me going your own way or doing your own thing, what you think is right. 

Return to Me! Trust in Me! I am here waiting to lavish you with grace, mercy, and blessing. Come to Me and wait in My presence! 

Trust Me no matter what the situation looks like around you! I will exalt My name in, through, and all around you as you stand with Me. My way is the only way of salvation, strength, grace, mercy, and blessing. Come to Me, wait, and watch what I will do! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 30:15 For the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel has said this, “In returning [to Me] and rest you shall be saved, In quietness and confident trust is your strength.” But you were not willing…

V. 18 “Therefore the Lord waits [expectantly] and longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed (happy, fortunate) are all those who long for Him [since He will never fail them].”

Eternal Legacy

Daily Encouragement –

What is your legacy? What have you built for yourself? What will last after you have gone? 

I am The Eternal One! My Kingdom is eternal! Come to Me and be a part of an eternal legacy! Come and build My Kingdom that lasts forever! 

Everything that is made by your effort or that you lift up and give power to is nothing! It will all waste away and be destroyed. Your pride, glory, and power will quickly dissipate into nothingness. 

Come to Me! Join My Eternal Kingdom! Humble yourself and lift Me up! Anything and everything of you and this world will be destroyed. My name will be exalted, and I will receive glory forever! 

Come and lift Me up! Build My Kingdom and become a part of My eternal legacy!!! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 2:12  For the day of the Lord of hosts Shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up— And it shall be brought low—

V. 17 The loftiness of man shall be bowed down, And the haughtiness of men shall be brought low; The Lord alone will be exalted in that day,

Just Alive or True Life?

Daily Encouragement – 

How are you doing? Are you just barely existing? Is your soul truly alive? 

Life is so much more than having a beating heart and drawing breath. All the animals are alive, but they do not have life. Just because you are living does not mean you have life. 

I have designed you to rule and reign with Me! I have called you to more than just a meager existence, but to be fruitful, multiply, and build My Kingdom! 

You are designed to thrive and excel in every area of your life! You have been called out of mundane survival to know Me and make My name great in all the earth. 

Come close to Me! Follow Me! Obey My voice so your very being may have the true life I designed for you! Come and step into My Kingdom of fruitfulness and true life as you walk with Me! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 38:20 But Jeremiah said, “They shall not deliver you. Please, obey the voice of the Lord which I speak to you. So it shall be well with you, and your soul shall live.
