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.”
