Lord, please Fill our pews with hungry new souls. Souls that can have a teachable spirit and that can grow up correctly.God please help all the" So called Christians" who want a cotton candy religion.
Choosing Christ is really signing up for a battle. But that makes us strong!Its' for the front line people. It's not for the soft limb wristed Christians that want Peace and Love all the time. It's for the strong and the unselfish who sacrifice their tiny comfort zones to bring the gospel to a lost and dying world ,instead of protecting their perfect world that is all tied up in a bow that they have worked so hard to maintain.
It's for the people who truly give their hearts not their heads. By their fruit you will know them. They will be revealed! Their true colors will shine right through at the first sign of conflict or discomfort.Its for the ones who have a LIFE God can build on. The ones that are not switching from church to church every few years when things get hard. No wonder they are losing their generations. Their children all are faltering. No wonder when there is a storm they fall over. Why? SHALLOW ROOTS.It blinds them from all the potential that is around them. It blinds them from seeing the positive in the storm. It deafens them to hear the lost and dying. But opens their itching ears up for lies and twisted stories. When the enemies that oppose the work of God and has a reputation of destruct, then they are blind and deaf to seek the real truth.
"Comfort....MY Comfort is more important than the souls that are around me". Is what they hear. Where are the soldiers? Where are the lives God can build on? Where are the people that can see a destructive patterns and not follow blindly after it. Where are the deep rooted Christians that are raising Godly sons and Daughters, the sons and daughters that can be themselves, having their own identity. Their own walk with Christ rather than fold to the pressure to manipulate each other into following them. Where are the hungry souls that are not asleep? Where are the people that will stand up for whats right and not cave into deception? Would the REAL Christians stand up?
So my husband sees me ranting about these people and says to me. " God's Got This! God is removing all the DNA that is all alike. They all have the same weak spirit Because where we are going they would never be able to handle it."
