Luke 10:2 – Therefore saith He (Jesus) unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers, into his harvest.
God’s harvest is large, but the labourers are few. We pray for souls, but do we pray for labourers ? Prayer and harvest are inseparable.
God never lays people off. Gods servants have job security. His call is without repentance. Unemployment doesn’t exist in the kingdom of God.
The benefits are eternal.
The Lord’s kingdom never closes it’s doors.
The Lord never goes bankrupt. There is always work, but not enough who seek purpose for their gifts.
Some labourers take a vacation and never come back. Some labourers are hired but never go to work.
They are always saying, Someday I’ll work in God’s fields. But they wait all their life and the hearse comes and carries them to the graveyard.
The graveyard is full of buried purposes. The graveyard is full of buried dreams and visions. The graveyard is full of buried gifts.
The reason many people never pray, Lord send forth labourers into the harvest, is because they know God has a purpose for them and they know what it is. They bury their call, they bury their gift, their life is full of excuses. Well, you may have raised your hand, but you are not excused.
God wants you doing something he has gifted and called you to do.
Roll up your sleeves and get to work, your past does’nt disqualify you. Surrender your life to Jesus, He will forgive you, train you, and hire you. He will fill you with his Spirit, teach you his Word, and put you to work in His harvest.
He has an assignment for you. Sit under a pastor who is gifted by Jesus to train you.
There is a cause, Jesus needs you. Progressively, he will lead you into his purpose for your life. The word of God and prayer will become natural to you. The grace of God will come into your life to fulfill the ministry he has called you to.
In 1975 God called me to preach. To tell you the truth, it filled me with fear. I told the Lord I couldn’t do it. But the Lord would wake me up and ask me How long before you preach my Word, I would cry and tell the Lord I want to but I can’t, Lord I’m shy. Actually I was full of fear. One a pastor preached on II Timothy 1:7 For God hath no given you a spirit of fear. I didn’t get rid of the fear but I told Jesus if you will help me I will preach Your Word. I claimed the Word, and preached with a shakey voice and shaking legs: with sweat running down my legs. I preached in the presence of fear and then one day I preached in the absence of fear. No more fear for me. The word of God is stronger than fear. When we stand on Gods promises, our will to overcome kicks in and the devil has to loose us.
You may not be called to preach, but God has a purpose for your life. Surrender to Jesus and ask him to have His will in your life. Seek Him with your whole heart and knock and He will open a wonderful door in His vineyard. Blessings in your journey.
