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!”

Wandering? Forgotten? Chosen!

Daily Encouragement – 

Do you ever feel like you are wandering aimlessly through this life? Do you know the purpose why you are here and what you are supposed to do? Are you able to do it? Do you feel like you have no direction and no strength to move even if you knew which way you were supposed to go? 

I have chosen you!!! I am The First and The Last, and I have chosen to help you and for you to come close and know Me! I call you to come near and will never cast you aside. 

I will forever strengthen and uphold you as much as you will allow! The closer you come to Me the more I am able to strengthen, encourage, and reveal the purpose and direction I have for you. Come close to Me and receive all you will ever need! 

Need a little more? Come a little closer and see the abundance of all I have to pour out upon you!!! I love you My child!!!

I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Speak and Live

Daily Encouragement –

Why are you here? Do you know your purpose? What will you do with your life that will have lasting effect on this world?

I am doing unimaginably great things all over the earth, right here and right now! Come to Me and join Me in My work! 

I desire for you to carry the message of the Word of My mouth to the ends of the earth. Not only this, but you are designed to live out practically this message that I have placed within you. You cannot speak in truth if you do not live it, and you are not living it fully unless you are speaking out. Speak the Truth to prepare the way for The Coming King, but even as you are doing this, you must live and work as my hands and feet to fully accomplish this preparation. 

I will reveal My glory! Come to Me and give yourself completely to Me that My glory may be fully revealed in and through you and your life. We can change the world together as you walk in and with Me!!! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 40:3-5 “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord; Make straight in the desert A highway for our God. 
Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth; 
The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

Loose Lips or Holy Heart

Daily Encouragement – 

What is coming out of your mouth? What is coming out of your heart? Does what you are saying line up with what you are doing? What are your actions revealing? Do you really know Me? 

Here I am! Come to Me! You do not have to keep yourself at a distance any longer. I will love you, and I will teach you all you need to know if you come to Me!  

I will change your heart! I will cause you to know Me not just in word but action. Come and honor Me with all your heart! Give yourself to Me completely again today and watch what I will do. 

Come and experience My love! Come and know Me really and truly! All the rules and regulations of man cannot bring you into deeper relationship with Me. 

Come and know Me and My heart, and all the desires for other things will melt away even as your hunger and thirst for Me increases! I love you My child!!! 

Isaiah 29:13-14 “Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men, 
Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work Among this people, A marvelous work and a wonder…”

Waiting for The Faithful One

Daily Encouragement –

Do you feel alone right now? A little off? Like I have left you? Are you waiting for freedom, deliverance.. that seems like it will never come? 

Come to Me! I am Faithful and True!!! I have always been! When you line yourself up with Me, you will never be left alone. Even when you walk away, I will never leave you. You only feel alone and far away as you remove yourself from Me and My way. 

I am Faithful! I will never walk away. I am Truth! I cannot lie! I have established My promises, and they will come to pass! 

Trust in My faithfulness and watch My salvation come upon you. Wait for Me and trust who I am. I will save no matter what it looks like right now. I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 25:1 “O Lord, You are my God. I will exalt You, I will praise Your name, For You have done wonderful things; Your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.”

V. 9 “And it will be said in that day: “Behold, this is our God; We have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the Lord; We have waited for Him; We will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.”

Come and Dwell

Daily Encouragement –

What do you take pride in? What do you consider your greatest accomplishment? What can you do to become great?

Here I am! I am the creator and commander of all the hosts of heaven and earth! I know the right way to go and have your purpose lined up. Come to Me first, and I will show you the best way! Love Me with everything you are and you will be truly great! 

Your pride and your accomplishments are nothing compared to My power and great vastness. You may seem great, but all I am and have is far greater. I have storehouses waiting to be opened and bless those who dwell before Me. Will you come and dwell with Me? 

Seek Me! Love Me! This is how you will be truly great! This is where I am waiting to provide all your needs! I love you My child!!!
