Greetings to you today Church family,
This week, our prayer line coordinator, Miriam Shaw, drafted the following word of encouragement that I felt impressed to send to you today. May you be reminded today, God has purpose for you as you walk as His child. Be blessed in Him.
Pastor Simeon Strauser
From Miriam Shaw:
May the Lord Almighty visit you in your dreams, revealing more of Himself to you.
There once was a poor peasant teenage girl who found incredible favor in the sight of Almighty God. She conceived and bore the Savior of the World.
King David was the youngest amongst his strong and powerful brothers. Even his own father couldn’t have envision him as king, but God did!
Gideon came from the weakest clan in Israel and among them, he was the least in his family, but God used him to defeat a great army that had risen up to fight the Israelites.
Esther, an orphan girl raised by her older cousin, found herself being prepped to be one of the king’s concubines, but the Lord’s divine favor led her to become the queen and save an entire race of people!
Look at Jephthah, the son of a prostitute who’s brothers disowned and cheated him out of his father’s inheritance. He rose up to become a great man of war that the same brothers went looking for his help!
How about Rahab the prostitute? She became one of Jesus Christ’s grandmothers! And don’t forget the Samaritan woman at the well who had 5 husbands. She became the first evangelist ever!
Look at Moses the stammerer who had an older brother Aaron that was perfectly eloquent in his speech, yet it was Moses that God chose!
Please don’t forget Apostle Paul, he was on his way to Damascus to kill Christians when the Lord God called him into ministry yet he wrote over half of the New Testament!
Here’s what am trying to say….He who numbered every star in the sky, knows the number of hairs on your head! He took His precious time to intricately weave you in your mother’s womb! You are not like any other! In this vast world of over 7billion people, not one finger print or DNA is like another!
He made you and placed you in the exact place and space in time, with the exact family and people surrounding you because there’s something so beautiful and special that only YOU can do in this world! God never makes mistakes!
It is time for you to rise up and seize the moment! Find out exactly what it is that He put you in this world to do. The whole creation is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God in this hour! It is not about you dear friend, we in ourselves can do nothing without Him! God looks at the heart of man. It is the the Almighty God at work in us that through Him we can do great and mighty exploits! Seek the face of the Father, ask Him to reveal to you what your destiny and purpose in this world is. He will do it. He is faithful!
“Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you!” (1 Chr. 28:20)
Undone by His love!…Miriam Shaw.
