I was called by God out of the marketplace to seek the mysteries and truth of Jesus like a pearl merchant who upon finding a single pearl of great value joyfully gives all to have it. To position my family in prayer, fasting and worship that we may hear His voice and then walk out in obedience what he lays on our hearts. Strive for the first commandment of loving God with all we have, enjoy His presence and allow His glory to overflow to others through love, kindness, acts of justice, healing and deliverance.
To partner with the Lord of the Harvest in this critical hour of history to link marketplace believers in shooting out messengers of light, burning and shining lamps, into the earth. To crosslink intercessory missionaries and agencies to catapult their ability to effectively share the unconditional love, mercy, grace and truth of Jesus and prepare the earth for His coming return.
God has called me on a journey to Karnataka India to seek Him in that place, to love Him by loving and serving His people, praying for them and to be obedient to Holy Spirit as He leads. Praying for opportunities and divine appointments to love and get to know the Saraswat Brahmin caste of Hindi people and the Dai Muslims of India for which there are no known believers that Yeshua is Messiah.
God has also laid on my heart numerous business projects to expand the kingdom and to partner with those building houses of prayer and churches in Asia and the Middle East and those willing to walk out love and acts of justice in this critical hour for women, men and children abused in human trafficking
God is amazing how He uses broken men to do His will. This gives me hope as I try to follow His will for my life.
Many of us know the broken and weak men He called to be His disciples and King David broke 5 of the 10 commandments in following his fleshly lust for Bathsheba.
I am reading the book of Judges which tells history of 13 of the 15 people God used to lead His people for aperiod of 350 years when there was no king.
Barak was not a manly warrior and disobedient to God.
Gideon kept testing and questioning God and made a gold ephod that ensnared israel as it became an idol.
Jephthah the son of a prostitute I get saddened and sickened when He made a horrible vow to God which resulted in him sacrificing his daughter he ran out with joy to greet him when he came home from battle. 😦
Sampson was physically strong but weak in moral character. His first marriage didn’t last…he slept with prostitutes and had a mistress. God finally became his eyes where he had to rely on God in bondage and God used him in the last 5 minutes of his life mightily.
Lord, even when we consecrate ourselves to live holy and not like the world you know that on this side of eternity we are broken vessels and broken depraved men but thank you that you keep us spinning on the potters wheel refining us and that we can know that your willwhich is so important can still be accomplished through us. Lord give me strength to walk out your call on my life despite my constant failings. Your bondslave Steven
