The world is clutching at straws.
The Lord allows a challenging situation to expose where our needs lie for us to have the opportunity to break through.
Jesus has all the solutions for every problem.
The means to complete fulfilment in the kingdom of God.
God’s dominion brings things into order.
“Every knee shall bow at the name of Jesus.”
We must not compromise what we, as Christians, know.
We can meet Jesus.We have the knowledge that Jesus rose from the tomb.
We must witness this resurrection, to others, for the hope of the world.
We have been called upon to share this.
Being with Jesus compensates over all the deficiencies and weaknesses we experience resulting from this pandemic.
He births in us a boldness that can even call out for more if it reveals a means to come closer.
Much as John and Peter did in prison for declaring the name of Jesus.
They refused to remain silent because they were seeing, hearing and witnessing the power of what was achievable in the name of Jesus.
We do not have the option to switch on and off being in the presence of Jesus.
In His presence all things are possible.
Being full on is what we are designed for in this hour.
It is the time to “Raise the voice with one accord” and give the world someone to clutch hold of.
We, like John and Peter, are required to not be shut down but to proclaim and acclaim with greater boldness.
To be heard and seen and for the world to be jealous of the source of that boldness and to seek Him.
For our prayer to be, turn up the heat and cause it to become the need of all.
We must not play safe and compromise faith, let the conflict beg for more and the opportunity not be missed.
Taking faith to a higher level will deprive the enemy of the oxygen that keeps him in existence.
We do not need a compromise version of the gospel to people please.
We need the full truth version that annihilates sin.
We gain that power from spending time with Jesus.
Being in His presence.
Jesus enabled miracles to give witness to His Father’s power whilst He walked the earth.
Those who saw and heard believed.
We are one in Christ for such a time again.
We were born for such a time as this.
The world needs to clutch at faith and believe.
My prayer is, Lord never let me withhold from anyone the opportunity to know You. Give me boldness and Your power to bring others to know You.
Let Your name, Jesus, ever be on my lips. Amen.
Let every person taste the beauty of Jesus.
The illustration shows a person with arm outstretched to grasp hold. Is it that of a drowning, a man grasping for straws or a God filled man grasping for Jesus?
How do we relate in that scenario?
Six scripture that come to mind:
“There is no one else who has the power to save us, for there is only one name to whom God has given authority by which we must experience salvation: the name of Jesus.””Acts 4:12 TPT
“The council members were astonished as they witnessed the bold courage of Peter and John, especially when they discovered that they were just ordinary men who had never had religious training. Then they began to understand the effect Jesus had on them simply by spending time with him.”Acts 4:13 TPT
“But to keep this propaganda from spreading any further among the people, let’s threaten them severely and warn them to never speak to anyone in this name again.”“But Peter and John replied, “You can judge for yourselves—is it better to listen to you or to God? It’s impossible for us to stop speaking about all the things we’ve seen and heard!””Acts 4:17-20 TPT
“When the believers heard their report, they raised their voices in unity and prayed, “Lord Yahweh, you are the Lord of all! You created the universe—the earth, the sky, the sea, and everything that is in them.”Acts 4:24 TPT
“And you spoke by the Holy Spirit ‘How dare the nations plan a rebellion, ranting and raging against the Lord Most High? Their foolish plots are futile!”“Look at how the kings of the earth take their stand, with the rulers scheming and conspiring together against God and his anointed Messiah!’”Acts 4:25-26 TPT
“So now, Lord, listen to their threats to harm us. Empower us, as your servants, to speak the word of God freely and courageously. Stretch out your hand of power through us to heal, and to move in signs and wonders by the name of your holy Son, Jesus!””Acts 4:29-30 TPT
