Shout It!

Posted by Shirley Ferguson on

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. - Matthew 28:19

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witness both in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth. - Acts 1:8

The chorus to “All the Poor and Powerless” keeps going through my head: “Shout it, go on and scream it from the mountains. Go on and tell it to the masses, that He is God.” When I hear and sing the chorus, my insides want to push out, my voice wants to yell, “He is God!” I want all the world to know, His Light to shine bright for all to see. Then the song ends, my quiet time is over, my day begins.

God, I want that overwhelming desire to share You with me all the time. Instead of closing my mouth when opportunity arises, I want to open wide and let Your words pour forth. I want my life to scream, “You are God” to the world around me. I don’t want it to be just a nice thought, catchy music, wishful thinking—I want this desire to be my life. I want to see the world through Your eyes; I want the strength and wisdom to share Your love with those around me. Place people in my life that I can reach out and touch with Your hands, Your voice, Your truth, Your love. Lead me to Your harvest and, Lord, let it be a great one. Let me shout it from the mountains, “You are God.”
