Yesterday I was thinking about all the people I know that do not know Jesus.
I was asking the Lord what I could say
Or what I could do
So that they could see
How great knowing Him is
I said out loud in my car
What could I have done differently Lord
What can I do or say now
The Lord spoke to my heart and said this
Just keep the light on!
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
What I have come to know is this:
Just as keeping your lights on in the physical world is expensive, so is keeping your lights on, in the spiritual world, especially when your are in the middle of a battle as many of you are. I am sure you know this! It is emotionally expensive, physically expensive, mentally expensive, and spiritually expensive. You must know and keep in the for front of your mind that there is huge purpose in this fight you are in. As you stand and believe and fight and wage war against the spirits of darkness I am telling you your light is getting brighter and brighter and brighter. This is the truth! This battle you are in is far bigger than just your family. You have to believe me! There are lives at stake here!
I have had this picture in my mind for several days and I want to share it with you:
I see a women on the narrow road that the Bible talks about and it is very narrow, very very narrow. She is looking straight ahead, all by herself and you can tell it is difficult. But way behind her is her spouse and he is just standing there not moving and behind him is this huge crowd of people.
What I believe God is telling me is this:
There are millions of souls at stake here. This battle that you are facing is about souls. As you fight the good fight and war for your spouse many will come to know Christ. This my friends is not an accident! You see if you fight this fight for just yourself and even your family the pain is almost not worth it but think about the souls. The hundreds of people, perhaps thousands and even millions that are lined up behind your spouse just waiting for your breakthrough. Watching you as you walk the very very narrow road. There are people coming up behind you and one day it will blow your mind.
1 Timothy 6:11-12
But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in they presence of many witnesses.
So what am I saying…
There are certain people that will not make it to heaven if you give up!
