Be Refreshed

Do not let your hearts be troubled, for Jesus has overcome the world (John Chapters 14-16). What if days of blessing were ahead for those who were called according to His purpose? What if Jesus’ Body/Church were to change the course of the current situations we hear about? What if we weren’t to fear? What if we weren’t to dread? What if we began to pray and proclaim God’s refreshing to cover the earth in place of the despair that is running rampant?

“Ask anything in My name and I will give it,” saith the Lord (John 14:12-14). Oh Body of Christ, what if we began to ask God on behalf of your city and nation to send blessing, healing, abundance? For by the goodness of God all men are drawn to God and repentance. Let us overwhelm the world with God’s goodness. Ask largely of Him for health, healing, faith to lay hands on the sick and they would recover, pardon for sin and repentant hearts, unity, non-offense, peace, forgiveness one toward another, expansion of economies, success in business and other endeavors that would have us create and bring forth in this time, and freedom from all darkness.

Instead of being overwhelmed by the look of things, rather walk as children of light in this world. Let your mouths be filled with awe at the goodness of the Lord, not filled with despair and depression at the look of things. Make the most of every opportunity to pour out His love to all those around – to speak a word of encouragement – to proclaim the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

We are the only ones who can bring light in this dark world through the power of Jesus Christ working through us. When the Church is removed by the rapture, then let it get dark, but while we are still here let us shine as lights to all those around us, to the nations.

Begin to call forth those things are not as though they were. Bind up the works of darkness and loose God’s will on earth – for every good and perfect gift if from above coming down form the Father of Heavenly lights.  Let your imaginations soar and reason with the Almighty on what is possible.

Draw so close to Him that you are moved only at the promptings of the Holy Spirit to do this thing or that, to give to this one, to build up that one, to create a new thing without fear. Fellowship with Him in your very good effort.  Let all men be liars and God word be proved true of what is possible at such a time as this. Lift your eyes to the hills, from whence comes your help? Your help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and earth!

John 14:12-14

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”
