12 – Perfect Government

Hebrews 12:12 (NKJV) – Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees.

I’m blessed to be able to say that my bride and I have been in ministry for over thirty years. We’ve been doing a work in one of the parking lots where we started feeding the homeless for longer than we’ve run a church. We’ve rescued over 10,000 kids! God is good! Every year has been a great privilege and a blessing, but it hasn’t been easy.

A ministry close to our hearts is when we get to rescue the rescuers. We understand the demands that ministry and constantly outpouring for others takes. We know the toll it can take on families and ministries. We know the need for fellow believers in Christ Jesus to come alongside their brothers and sisters and strengthen the hands which hang down and the feeble knees.

Declaration: King Jesus, You are our tower of refuge. You are our burden-bearer. Cause me to be a sanctuary to those who have been in the battle and need a respite. Help me to be a comfort to the harvesters in the fields because the Comforter dwells in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!


It is one of my and Leanna’s favorite things when we get to come alongside someone who is doing the Kingdom stuff, but no one will stand with them. They’re taking on hell with a water pistol on the front lines and all in for King Jesus. Yet, it seems like the Body of Christ just won’t get up and do something! We’ve been there! 

We know that battle. We know how lonely and hopeless that place can be. But thanks be to God that we didn’t give up! Now when the Lord brings us those people, we’re so grateful to be able to stand with them and partner with them. We get to rescue the rescuers. 

That’s exactly what King Jesus does for us. When He ascended back to the Father, He sent us His Holy Spirit. Jesus is acquainted with our sorrows, our struggles, and our battles. As our Great High Priest, He is constantly interceding for us before the Father. He knows we need help! 

But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.  – John 14:26 AMP 

Friends, because you and I have the Comforter within us, it is our great privilege to comfort others and to stand with them. Especially the Body of Christ! We’re the ones that are supposed to be famous for how we love each other!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. – 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NKJV
