Grace and peace to you and yours!
It is my prayer this letter finds you well. If you have read my posts for any amount of time, you have heard me share that it is the Lord’s desire for us to do and say only what He is doing and saying. While on this earth, Jesus was in perfect unity with the Father’s will in all He said and did. That amazes me! We are to follow His example. We need to do what He’s shown us even if we feel we are high up in a tree, at the farthest tip of a tiny, frail little limb. The Father has promised that if He has called us out on a limb, He will hold it up! Praise God! Only He could do such a thing!!! (See vision: limb)
The heart of God for the mission trip I shared with you last month to both western and eastern Europe is just such a limb! (If you didn’t receive that update, click Jan2012) I believe the Father is going to touch Europe with His love in an extraordinary way in 2012. I know when it comes to mission trips: one plants, another waters, but it is God who brings forth the growth! How the Father intends to touch the land through my journey there – I don’t know – that’s up to Him; but I believe He intends to do something significant across Europe this year. The “wells of inheritance” will flow from God’s throne room – all things are possible for those who believe! (See wellsofinheritance)
For the most part religious institutions have kept the people from knowing the Father’s love; only a few enjoy a personal and loving relationship with Jesus. While many have rejected Him, God has not rejected Europe! He is calling to her to WAKE UP and return to Him. Jesus revealed in the parable we know as the “Prodigal Son,” that the father ran to greet his lost son as he returned home; and I see this is how our heavenly Father desires to run and embrace His lost children in Europe! I am convinced that it is His desire to reveal His heart toward them in a fresh and understandable manner. (See Luke 15:11-32)
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:13-15
My heart burns whenever I read what Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 9:16, “For when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, since I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” (Emphasis mine)
