I’ve heard it said many times in my life to wait on God. I have lived much of my life with desires to do things for Jesus yet remained still and dormant in fear of getting ahead of God or doing something He wasn’t in. I am learning that no dream is fulfilled and no desires are met without a person getting up and moving forward in faith. If you are waiting for all the answers, the finances, and the approval of others until you move; you'll never accomplish anything. I’m learning that most of the time we are not waiting on God but He is waiting on us.
“Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest” ( Luke 10:2).
It is very possible, that by the time you read this, Elizabeth and I will be in the process of moving all of our belongings to Savannah, Georgia to begin a new chapter of our “life’s book." We are moving to Savannah to plant a life giving church there called Free Point Church. We are so excited to be going on this new adventure with God as He leads us and orders every step we take. Jesus told His disciples in Luke 10:2 that the “harvest was great and ready for the taking but His laborers were few.”
Elizabeth and I want to be included in the few who have made the decision to lay their personal lives down so others can discover life in Jesus. We want to be included in the few that live by faith and not by sight. We want to be the few that stores riches in Heaven rather than on the earth. We want to be the few that trust God’s word over our experiences. We are the few laborers who are going after a harvest of souls and desire to train and encourage others to do the same.
God moving us to Savannah is a harvest from someone’s prayers. Someone over the years has prayed for laborers to be sent into the Savannah area and because of this, God has asked us. I have often wondered if there were others before us whom God asked to plant a church in Savannah and didn’t go because of fear of failure, fear of other’s opinions, or just not being willing to leave the comforts of where they are to move to another place. I never want to be the person who says no to Jesus. I want my life to always have a yes to Him even if that means a no to others.
Obedience to God’s voice is not always easy but is always rewarding. One day we all will stand before Jesus and have to account for how we lived our lives. There will be no one else there on that day for us to point fingers at or blame for not living an obedient life to His Lordship. Living with this understanding makes it much easier to say yes to Him and no to ourselves and others.
Hopefully our lives will encourage you to live for Jesus. He loves you and has a life planned for you that is way better than you could ever plan for yourself. He knows you better than you know you. So, trust Him. Obey Him. Be a member in the “few” club that allows the Holy Spirit to live in and through their lives to bless others. Be an answer to someone’s prayers instead of a hindrance. God is calling you to go. He is asking you to move forward. Will you say yes to His call? The harvest is waiting on you. People are waiting on you to show them Jesus! Let’s go!
