1 Corinthians 16:13 “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong!”
For This Last Mile!
With the last ounce
of Effort’s — all
turns from liquid
into a gas…
…where it’s burned as
fuel — fully fired
then are we spent
wholly for HIM.
Up till that Time
we must press on —
though pressures rise
and pains increase.
For this “last mile”
begs Faith’s extreme
so those in need
reach Heaven too!
As HIServant retightening the belt of Truth and readjusting my shoes of Peace for the hours ahead,
Devotional: Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous! Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your GOD WHO goes with you. HE will not leave you or forsake you!”
1 Timothy 6:12 “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
1 Peter 5:8-9 “Be sober-minded; be watchful.
Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.”
This “last mile” called Today is much longer than just 5,280 feet.
It is requiring a much greater distance than the day before — every day — for so very many brothers and sisters across the world.
A method I have used for years to help others overseas has tightened restrictions on funding the Gospel.
In one week I’ve heard this same message essentially from 3 different ministries.
This “final Hour” is costing some their lives in the peaceful extension of CHRIST’s Good News.
Let us not be lulled into any complacency of thinking which might cause one to shrink back from acting on behalf of those out front…in HIS NAME!
Romans 11:2-5 “God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel, saying,
3 “Lord, they have killed Your prophets and torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life”?
4 But what does the divine response say to him? “I have reserved for MYSELF seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”
5 Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace!”
We who remain at this present time, must press onward THROUGH the increasingly offensive, “Valley of the Shadow of Death.”
Countless souls, beaten down on the side of the road, are those truly and earnestly looking to JESUS for HIS touch of Grace and Favor right now.
Entrusted with the furthering of the Gospel no matter the Hour and no matter the distance, let us embrace Hosea 6:3!
“Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. HIS going forth is established as the morning; HE will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth!”
Hallelujah! Rain then, oh LORD, through us for this last mile…
…so that those with ears to hear feel restored and refreshed till YOU come!
Amen and amen!
