** Spiritual Pioneers **
Dont think it strange, the resistance you experience trying to make spiritual advances. It’s absolutely normal if you’re plowing through untraversed terrain. God sent you ahead of the pack because he chose you to beat the path for others to follow! If God is going to take us to the next level, to dimensions we havnt seen, to take dominion over new territories yet unsettled, yet uncaptured; then somebody has to pioneer the way! Someone has to pay “The Pioneers Price”!
– noun- one of the first to settle in a territory.
-verb- to prepare or open for others to follow.
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Joshua 1:9 KJV

Are You Ready?
A Prayer Stop poem, author unknown.
Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house,
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care,
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.
The children were dressing to crawl into bed,
Not one ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap,
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.
When out of the East there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray,
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!
The light of His face made me cover my head,
It was Jesus returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.
In the Book of Life which He held in His hand,
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said “It’s not here” my head hung in shame.
The people whose names had been written with love,
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound,
While all the rest were left standing around.
I fell to my knees, but it was too late,
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.
In the words of this poem the meaning is clear,
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There’s only one life and when comes the last call,
We’ll find that the Bible was true after all!
Please share this poem and may it spread all over the globe!
A great read to start the day, my friends!

“I am the door, if anyone enters through me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” John 10:9
Many Christians I know are frazzled. They work hard to serve God in tangible ways, and yet time for prayer and rest is brushed aside for modern day guarantees of fulfillment. Idle time is wasted on empty entertainment or scanning phones, having jostled and interrupted conversations with others doing the same.
Jesus invited us to set that all aside for true fulfillment when He said, “I am the door.” Only in Him do we, as weary travelers, finally arrive at a secure destination where we can be nourished.
In today’s passage, God is calling us to the rest that becomes ours by crossing through Christ, the door. We are like sheep that wander. When we ignore God’s door, we come back starved, misled, dirty, or at the very least worn out.
However, when we pay close attention to today’s verse, we see that only back-and-forth, day-to-day fellowship with God will provide us with pasture or food, not only for our bodies, but also for our souls.
No matter how many wonderful things you accomplish each day, no matter how many people you influence, don’t forget to get your nourishment from God so you can continue to please Him as well as to stay balanced. The Door is open and those who enter will indeed reap a healthy reward.
Dear Lord, I pray that You would help me to set aside every encumbrance so I can focus on having time with You. I pray that You would hear the cries of my heart, would recognize my passions, and would turn me in the right direction so I can find true fulfillment for the journey. Thank You for the sweet pasture I find in Your presence. The gifts in my life are plentiful, and I attribute them all to You; they are all for Your glory. Amen.
Thought: We can be at home with Jesus every single day. All we have to do is knock on the door—Him. Don’t’ just knock once today. Knock throughout your day. Draw strength and nourishment from your Savior.
Try spiritual breathing. It’s a great way to keep you knocking.

Child of God, don’t be afraid. For in what we lack, God supplies in unending abundance. His grace is sufficient and ANYTHING is possible with HIM! God literally #died to know you. You are loved beyond understanding. No tear goes unnoticed. Be of good cheer!
If you are reading this, perhaps the title caught your attention?
I share a message of truth, and a message of hope tonight.
For every scar, every battle lost, every tear… there is purpose.
Philippians 1:29 says “For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him, but also to suffer for his sake.”
That day when every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess, you will reap your reward. Don’t give up. And no matter what, do not ever stop praying. God is listening right now, waiting for you to ask Him for even greater things. Let us pray boldly, and pray in faith believing. For if we cannot believe God to heal a headache, how can we believe Him to heal a cancer? He’s got this.
May the Lord be with you tonight and keep you always.
