When Jesus said “do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you”, He did NOT say to stop ministering with His full authority and power.
He simply reminded us where our joy should be found: it is in His eternal salvation of our souls!
Until He returns though, we have work to do as warriors in the spirit realm, using His authority and power with which He deputized us.
Let’s “lock and load!”
Great friendships are timeless and remain safe refuges even through life’s biggest interpersonal challenges.
The young woman Mary, the mother of Jesus, had a very unique mission. It was a mission that was assigned only once in the entire timespan of the universe: the virgin birth of Jesus Christ.
While that mission will never be duplicated, God is still finding, favoring, and empowering women of all ages around the world for other very important assignments for His kingdom.
There are many women today who are walking the same path of humility and graciousness that Mary was walking on the day when she “found favor with God.”
Ladies, God is recruiting today’s Mary’s. He has missions that need to be accomplished, missions that are impossible to complete. But if you will hear His proposal, and will respond like a Mary, He will empower you for your life’s mission; you will be “Empowered for the Impossible!”
I pray that God’s recruiting angel will stand before you very soon. We need more Mary’s in the church!
The prayer that God hears [and responds to] begins with a humble heart. No, we don’t have to duplicate the physical postures that are seen in the attached photo, but we most certainly must endeavor to humble our heart [like they are] as we begin to pray, to seek God, and to change our lives.
See you at the altar of prayer, my friends.
In December 1987 I became a highly-favored son-in-law to God because I “found” (read: “Led by The Spirit”) a wonderful wife: Teresa, one of His daughters!
My Heavenly-Father-in-Law has fulfilled His Word; I have truly received “favor” from God since I “found” her!
“He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.”
~ Proverbs 18:22
