I declare in Jesus’ name, I am in the battle for lost souls. I renounce my comfort zone and complacency. You have prepared hearts for me to win, King Jesus. You ready the soil and I will plant and water the seeds. The harvest is Yours.
THE CHANGE OF LIFE
Face it, we are a mess. Yes, you and I are major malfunctions and we will be until we get home to glory.
As messed up as we are, God calls us His people and sends us into the darkest places of this crazy world with a mandate and a mission to surround evil and change things for good. We are to save people from an eternity in hell. First, He surrounds us with goodness to lead us.
Teach me to do your will; for you are my God; your spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. – Psalms 143:10
After He leads us by His goodness, we are followed by His goodness.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. – Psalms 23:6
Not only is He in the midst of us with His goodness, He is before us and behind us as well!
Then your light will break forth like dawn and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. – Isaiah 58:8
The battle is for the eternal souls of men and women. The risks and the rewards are worth it. So step out in faith to battle for goodness in evil places. Know that God is paving the way. He will sustain your efforts even after you have finished your fight.
