    Simon Peter said to them, 'I'm going fishing.' They told him, 'We are also coming with you.' They immediately went out, and entered into the boat. That night, they caught nothing. But when day had already come, Jesus stood on the beach, yet the disciples didn't know that it was Jesus. John 21:3 WEBP...

  • He told them this parable. 'Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn't leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it?' Luke 15:3 WEB

    One night I had a very vivid dream where a person who had attended our church was hurt and had huge sores on their body, but I had a jar of salve that would heal them. When I convinced them to let me help, I rubbed the salve over their sores, and they were so touched that someone cared that they began weeping.

    Confused about the dream, but noting that I had not seen them for a while, I decided that I would call them up and invite them out to dinner. They agreed and over a long dinner I learned that they had been hurt over a simple misunderstanding. No one involved meant anyone harm, but they had withdrawn thinking the worst. I knew everyone involved and was able to explain, pray for them, and it brought healing to the relationship. They returned to church and everything was fine.

    God does not toss people away. He actively seeks out the lost and the wounded, and He will use you to do it. You are His body on the earth. He will heal people through you, and speak through you, but you have to be willing to go.

    Also, God does not want to lose anyone, but we all have a free will and can push Him away, and those that He sends to us. Those that He sends, do not have to go at all. Truly the harvest is great, but the laborers are few (Matthew 9:37).

    Let God love you, and through you. Don't let the one that He has placed on your heart slip through the cracks like so many others. Work with Him to bring in the harvest. Go after the lost and the wounded when He brings them to your remembrance. He will back you up.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please show me the lost and give me Your words to comfort them. Help me see them through Your eyes. Guide me, teach me, use me on this earth, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen! Abba Father has placed two terminally ill neighbors next to me in the past couple of years. I do not find it ironic that one died and the other purchased their apartment. God has placed them near me for a reason. The first was a Jewish man and I prayed fervently for his soul as the Lord led me, on the night he passed way. I didn't know he was dying that night, I found out the next day.  I never had an opportunity to share Jesus with him, but his family knew I was a Christian praying for him. Now I have posted a prayer request for my neighbor Mary Nicholson she has been diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer. I have spoke to her about my faith and she has asked for me to pray for her children in the past. I do not know if she is born again. I am asking Abba to show me how I can best minister to her. I am also praying for her complete healing. If we ask for opportunities to serve Abba, He brings them abundantly.

I forgot to mention after the Jewish man died i felt peace and joy, I just knew that he was with Jesus. A short time after I had a dream with the words, Shalom, shalom repeated over and over in it.
