We are right on the precipice of God pouring out His glory in ways we have never seen before.
At a meeting in Missouri there was a woman attending who was a collegiate track and field star but now in her 40s. Over the years she had bone spurs develop in her feet and was no longer able to run without pain. In faith, she received the healing God had for her and woke up the next day and ran completely pain free! Running was something she loved to do but wasn?t able to enjoy until God invaded her circumstance.
God knows the number of hairs on your head and He wants you to receive the miracle you need more than you want it – even when it seems like the only benefit is your enjoyment.
Normally I study the Bible topically but recently, I have been studying Luke 10 because I believe it is pertinent to the season of time we are in right now.
Time of Great Harvest
As you study the life of Jesus you quickly notice He was always focused on other people. He wasn?t concerned about His own circumstances but looking to meet needs in His path.
You are anointed to have an affect on people and situations around you.
We are entering a time of great outpouring to the Body of Christ so we can get our eyes off ourselves and look at the world around us.
After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them two by two ahead of Him into every city and place where He Himself was about to come. He said to them, ?The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.Luke 10:1-2 (MEV)
Ask God to open your eyes to people in your life who are ready to hear the Gospel.
Get Ready for Resistance
Some guys showed up at a recent meeting John and I were hosting for the purpose of mocking the meeting and God. We have had plenty of experiences where people voice opinions about our beliefs or us personally but I can?t remember a time when someone so brazenly showed up to be a disruption.
You might have heard a saying similar to, ?the greater the darkness in the world, the brighter your light shines?. Just because your light is shining, doesn?t mean you don?t experience persecution.
Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon which have been done for you, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.Luke 10:13 (MEV)
Pray for God to open the eyes of those who would come against your faith.
Manifestations are Secondary
You have been given authority to use the power found in the name of Jesus but more importantly you get to personally know Him!
As more miracles are poured out, don?t lose the most important thing – personal intimacy with God.
Look, I give you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. And nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice that your names are written in heaven.
Luke 10:19-20 (MEV)
Make sure to set aside time daily to love on Jesus.
Amazing Outpouring of God?s Glory
We are living in an amazing time in history!
Can you imagine a worship service where the person next to you starts screaming because their prosthetic leg turned into a leg of flesh?
You are called to walk in the miraculous power Jesus did.
Many kings and prophets of old longed to see these days of miracles that you?ve been favored to see. They would have given everything to hear the revelation you?ve been favored to hear. Yet they didn?t get to see as much as a glimpse or hear even a whisper.Luke 10:24 (TPT)
Begin praying for more hunger to see God move miraculously.
Called to Give
God loved the whole world, He gave. The story of the Samaritan is a great example of giving without any expectation for return.
Is there a way you can sow kindness to someone who has been helping you grow in love?
But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion on him, and went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine. Then he set him on his own donkey and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day when he departed, he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said to him, ?Take care of him. I will repay you whatever else you spend when I return.?
Luke 10:33-35 (MEV)
Evaluate how you can sow your time, energy, effort or resources in a new way.
Don?t Get Distracted
We can all fall into the trap of working for God. Don?t let the excitement of the season we are living in keep you from spending time sitting at Jesus’ feet.
Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet. She is undistracted, and I won?t take this privilege from her.
Luke 10:42 (TPT)
