So I’ve been reading a collection of Smith Wigglesworth’s messages and quite frankly, I’M SICK OF JUST READING ABOUT IT!
I know I serve the same God that he did. I know that same God wants to see people shaken up just as badly today as He did then.
So what am I gonna do about it?
I’m going to be better prepared. I’m going to start EXPECTING a word from God for the people I’m surrounded by. When I walk into a restaurant, I’m going to look for someone to speak a word into. When I’m at the grocery store, I’m going to look for someone with a broken arm and ask them if I can pray for them.
My time is not my own. My money is not my own. My gasoline is not my own. My clothes are not my own. My agenda is not my own. I must be willing to allow God to use those things He has entrusted me with.
I am excited about what God is going to do through me because of my obediecet.
ARE YOU WITH ME?
