    The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body is also full of light; but when it is evil, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore see whether the light that is in you isn't darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will...

    Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness Luke 4:1 WEB.I would not be here if I had not first been there. So many times in our life, we can look back and say those words. Where we were when we met our spouse, and how narrow a time frame t...

  • Amaziah also said to Amos, 'You seer, go, flee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there, but don't prophesy again any more at Bethel; for it is the king's sanctuary, and it is a royal house!' Then Amos answered Amaziah, 'I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son, but I was a herdsman, and a farmer of sycamore figs; and Yahweh took me from following the flock, and Yahweh said to me, 'Go, prophesy to my people Israel.' Now therefore listen to Yahweh's word Amos 7:12'16 WEB.

    Amos was a shepherd and a fig tree farmer. Then the Lord called him to deliver a prophecy to the backslidden people of Israel. When he did, Amaziah, the priest of the king's sanctuary, told Amos to stop talking and leave the area.

    So we have the experienced royal priest Amaziah, who was a friend of the king. But he did not carry the word of the Lord. Contrasted with Amos. The simple shepherd who had an anointed, timely word from the Lord.

    God adores the little ones. He gives His word to them, and He fulfills it with signs following. Everything Amos said came true, and then he went on to tell Amaziah that his wife would soon be a prostitute in the city. That was a bold step of faith, and I am sure it was frowned on by the priests who were there.

    Jesus was a carpenter (Mark 6:3). Peter, James, and John were just uneducated, ordinary fishermen. But they preached with a fire and a boldness that astonished those listening to them (Acts 4:13).

    Jesus told a parable about a Pharisee and a tax collector in Luke 18:10. The Pharisees were the religious elite. While the tax collectors were the lowest of the low, and in a social class below prostitutes. After they both prayed, Jesus said that the tax collector was more justified than the Pharisee.

    When the Lord calls you to do something, don't let someone with more experience, more education, a higher position, and a negative attitude hold you back. When the Lord gives you the dream and then opens the door for you, step through it, and trust Him. He is more than able to support you. If you feel insignificant today, then know that you are a perfect candidate to be filled with His presence, to usher in something new.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please fill me with Your presence. Draw my heart to You. Speak to me and through me. I choose You today and pray that You fulfill Your perfect will in my life. Guide me, teach me, and let me grow in faith. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!
