“..but the people who know their God will display strength and take action.” Daniel 11:32b
From God’s Heart:
Go produce fruit that remains (John 15:6).
Trust My judgment.
Trust My heart.
For signs and wonders and great signs and wonders (Hebrews 2:4).
I am making a people after My own heart,
raising them up to do exploits.
Will they take the risks?
Will they persevere under the training of character that it takes?
Being used is not the easiest road, but it’s the most enjoyable,
filled with the JOY of My Spirit and My abilities.
Hide yourself in Me, and I will shine and be bright and draw men unto Myself.
I am your hiding place (Psalm 32:7).
Hear My voice. Come and partake. I Am. And I give My glory to none other.
Doing exploits for Jesus is a desire of our hearts as His children, but we must not allow that outcome to become our focus. Our focus must be, and always be, on Him.
When our focus is for Him to be exalted and we KNOW Him and His love (Ephesians 3:19), we will take the risks and persevere under the training of character that it takes.
May we say “yes” to the training and to being used, make Him our focus, draw ever nearer in personal relationship with our Savior, and display strength and take action.
Spend some time with Him this week asking, “For my life personally, what do the first steps of that training look like?” Write all that He puts upon your heart: all the instructions, all the hopes and dreams and visions of what He is able to do. With Him all things are possible (Mark 10:27).
Ask Him to show you greater depths of His love for you and receive it. Write down all that He shows you and cling to His truth.
“Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.” Hebrews 13:20, 21
