At a recent Staff Meeting, we listened to one of Dutch Sheets' videos. As we listened, we felt drawn to a time of prayer. So we prayed, we worshiped, and we shared scripture together. The Presence of the Lord was so strong. It was a holy time.
One of the scriptures we shared is the familiar one found in John 17:17. It is where Jesus is saying to the Father, “Sanctify them by Your truth....” That is what He is saying in this hour.
As Jesus' followers we know He is speaking to us, but there is a sense of “What are You saying to me? Is there anything You want to adjust in my life?” I would say He is bringing our attention to something again. It may be that what the Lord is saying this time is taking a different direction, but the essence of the truth is there.
The scripture goes on to say, “As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.” Imagine what your reaction might be in hearing the Lord say, “I am sending you.”
You might reply, “I'm not going anyplace. I leave work and I go home. I go to the grocery store, but I don't really go anyplace because we are in lockdown. We can't go anywhere.”
Maybe there is a message in your reply; something in our lives personally, right in our own home, our own dwelling place, our own working place. The places that we have become accustomed to and places we can’t run from. He is saying, “I've got you right here. Hear My voice. Listen to Me. I want to make some changes.”
That just makes me want to cry. Because it is a very precious thing God is allowing and doing in our lives.
