I was just sitting here thinking of an old message I heard a long time ago. There’s such a need for a man in between.
We just need some Abraham’s & Moses’s. Some men that went on the behalf of other people. I love the story of how Moses repented for the people & God pardoned His judgement from falling on them. Not because of what they did or prayed. But it was Moses standing in proxy for a fallen people.
I am on a journey with the Lord. He’s showing me this beautiful thing of leadership & authority. That apart from God’s authority we could never achieve God’s calling. To step outside of God’s authority is to step outside of protection.
Today in our staff meeting a vision was just even more clearly stated & I’m committed to that mission. I’m mandated by Christ Himself to make disciples. Baptize them.
This coming Sunday as of today I know of 3 young people that are going to be baptized. I’m praying that they get this concept of authority.
We need people that understand this & when you do, there is no fear to stand in the gap for other people. I use to be afraid of that. Now I thrive for it. The reason I keep doing what I’m doing is not because it’s a profession. But it’s because of the young people who come from broken home, neglected, misunderstood, abused, lost a family member to death, been misused, abused, raped, molested, beat, starved, hopeless, suicidal, etc…you name it, I welcome it. Because never will a kid walk away from me & think that God nor myself doesn’t value them.
Listen up everyone, YOU MATTER! God said He takes care of every little bird in the air. There’s no such thing as a bakers dozen with God. You’re not the extra junk thrown in with the deal. You’re specific. You have value. You have talents. You’re special. You’re loved!
