Ask of Me!!! (Southeast Asia)

Without any knowledge or forethought of returning to Southeast Asia, God has prepared a way for me to return.  The location is new (and undisclosed for safety reasons) but the vision and mission is the same to respond to Jesus’ command of “Follow Me” with a resounding YES!!!

While fasting and praying for this upcoming trip, a scripture was spoken to me very clearly. 

Psalm 2:8 ‘Ask of Me, and I will assuredly give You the nations as Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth as Your possession.’ 

This is the desire of The Lord for you today!!! Too often, we ask for such small mediocre things. God I need finances, take this stress from me, heal my headache… There is nothing wrong with asking these things, and I celebrate every prayer and act of faith in crying out to God.  However, if this is all we are asking for, we are aiming far lower than the Almighy God of the Universe desires or is capable of. 

My God is powerful and mighty and does great things beyond what we could ever ask for, hope for, or even imagine.  It is time for all of us to come out of small thinking and small prayers and graduate into Kingdom Prayers.  I desire a grand inheritance in The Kingdom!!! 

God has given me the privilege of traveling to many nations. I know most people may never have the opportunities I have been given, but how many nations have you asked for?  How many times have you poured out your heart for those in other countries to know The Lord and walk with Him? How often do you ask God to give your nation to you as an inheritance? Admittedly, I have not prayed as often or as fervently as I should, but God has given me the faith to ask for the nations as my inheritance.  

Now, as I travel again, unexpectedly, and without really praying for the specific location He has prepared for me before now, God has found a willing vessel. This is what He wants. Your abilities, talents, and gifts are not important. What is important is your willingness to be filled and desire to be used for His Kingdom.  

I encourage you today with this verse that has been on my heart the last month or so:

Romans 12:1 “Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies (dedicating all of yourselves, set apart) as a living sacrifice holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship.”

It is time for us all, once again to worship God in the best way possible, by giving ourselves to Him just a little bit more today and letting Him do what He wants to do in and through us.

God, make us more willing and yielded vessels to You and Your will. Open our mouths to declare Your truth, may our thoughts and prayers be ever for Your Kingdom, and may our every breath be used for service in Your Kingdom anywhere You may take us, whether around the block or around the world. May we all have the faith and an abundance of grace to worship You with our whole lives!!!

Unique and Vital

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. I am pouring My blessings over you right now. My desire is to bless you fully and for you to operate in your place in The Kingdom. 

Your gifts, talents, and abilities make you a unique and vital piece in advancing My Kingdom. Begin to use everything you have for My glory.

What will you do with what you have?

Even as I lead you into new revelation of Me and who you were created to be in Me, I desire for these revelations to bring you to a place of use. Use whatever you have, and all you discover anew, to advance My Kingdom. 

Everything has been given to you for a plan and a purpose not just for your pleasure. None of these things are given for your own pride or selfishness. Use everything you have for My Kingdom so all may benefit in the Body from what has been given to you. 

Someone is missing out on knowing the fullness of The Kingdom as long as you are not stewarding what you have been given. Step up and be who I have called you to be, a Carrier of My Kingdom!!! I love you My child.

1 Corinthians 12:25-31 … there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. 
And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. 
Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. 
And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. 
Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 
Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 
But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way. 

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!
