You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!
It’s week 5, and we are still alive. We are down to single digits until the end of the fast. Some may not have thought it possible to go this long, but God has been faithfully going before us, walking beside us, and He will bring up the rear with His glory. Let’s continue steadfastly seeking The God of heaven for all He wants to do in us and through us! This is what you were made for, an eternity of seeking Him!
As we have been praying, fasting, and seeking the Lord to be propelled to the next level in Him, there has been a shift. Yesterday, I shared about being God’s Witness and how this comes from the secret, quiet intimacy of knowing God and receiving His heart. When this takes place, His desire to be made great in our lives turns into the worship of us being witness of the testimony He has done in us. Knowing God and growing in your relationship with Him is the first step of being a witness.
Today, I want to discuss the second step of being a witness, you must Ask! God desires to use everyone everywhere to be his witnesses. However, when we come to truly know God and His desires begin to grow inside of us, we will begin to ask and pray to be a witness.
Do you pray daily for specific lost people around you in your family, at your school or workplace, in your neighborhood?
Although this is something that we should do, because of the cares of this world, often we do not. The cares of the world choke out the life of the seeds of prayer that are never sown into the hearts of those who have no knowledge of The King or The Kingdom.
Somehow in seeking The Lord, David comes into a place where he hears a heavenly conversation taking place. This conversation takes place in Psalms 2. God The Father is speaking to His son and this is what He says:
Psalm 2:7-8 “I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
The Father says to The Son because You are My Son, I will give you an inheritance. What is this inheritance? The nations and the ends of the earth. These are God’s to give and He says ask me, and I will give them to you. If God is our Father in heaven and holy is His Name, His kingdom must come and a His will must be done on earth as it is done in heaven. You and I are his children, begotten in the gospel.
How much more should we ask Him for the nations and ends of the earth for our possession?
Have you asked Him for souls, cities, or nations?
Knowing this, let’s jump forward to when Jesus came to the earth. He was surrounded and submersed in all the things we are today. Poverty, sickness, darkness, sin, and death surrounded his every day life. One day these things overwhelm Jesus’s heart of compassion gained by spending time seeking The Father. He sees the hopeless scattered sheep, but He sees a great harvest for the Kingdom. There was more work than any one man could ever do just bringing them into the Kingdom.
What was Jesus’ solution?
Matthew 9:36-38 But when He [Jesus] saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Jesus said pray and ask The Lord of the harvest to call, equip, and send forth laborers. We are not just supposed to spend our days in prayer and seeking God, but we are to pray that we may become witnesses, laborers, vessels of righteousness used by God. When we know God’s heart, we will ask that His desires be made manifest in the earth.
My encouragement for today is to begin to ask for souls, pray for an inheritance of nations. Together we have been seeking to know The Father and growing in Him. Now, let’s begin to pray and ask to be His witnesses, and that He would give us souls, cities, regions, and nations. This is the inheritance of the saints, the saving and discipling of all nations, tribes, and tongues. Over 3 billion people still have not heard, it is time to pray for the Lord of The Harvest to send forth laborers into the field and be willing to go ourselves!
Jesus, I love you! I desire to grow in knowing You and developing Your heart and Your desires. I ask for the nations as my inheritance and the ends of the earth for my possessions. Use me to reach the unreached. May those in darkness see Your light shining brightly out of me and been drawn to You. I am willing to go. Send out Your workers to bring in the harvest that I may not be alone in bringing in this great harvest of souls!!!
- Ask Holy Spirit to draw you deeper in to knowing Him and give you a heart of compassion
- Ask for the nations as your inheritance
- Ask for souls of specific people in your family, workplace, school, and sphere.
- Pray The Lord of The Harvest to send forth laborers into the field
Be blessed today with knowing God in a greater way than ever before and gaining a true heart of compassion! May you receive an amazing inheritance of souls coming into The Kingdom as you are propelled into the next level with the King!
