Church, Rise Up and Walk!

“And the LORD, He is the one who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” – Deuteronomy 31:8.

“Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid nor dismayed before the king of Assyria, nor before all the multitude that is with him; for there are more with us than with him. With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God, to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people were strengthened by the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.” – 2 Chronicles 32:7-8.

“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'” – Isaiah 41:10.

Christ Jesus IS the Head of the Church! The Same whom Isaiah is calling too in the next verses. Today we ARE His arms and legs, His Body! The Head is commanding, is directing, where is the ACTION? Is Christ’s Church, His Body asleep from inactivity? Awake, Awake and shake off the weariness. The time is short and there is a harvest awaiting!

“Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD! Awake as in the ancient days, In the generations of old. Are You not the arm that cut Rahab apart, And wounded the serpent? Are You not the One who dried up the sea, The waters of the great deep; That made the depths of the sea a road For the redeemed to cross over? So the ransomed of the LORD shall return, And come to Zion with singing, With everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness; Sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” – Isaiah 51:9-11.

If you want to know what you can do and how the Lord can use you, in whatever way, great or small, seek Him NOW while He can be found and I guarantee you, He WILL find you and answer you! Be His vessel today. Show His love while it IS still day! Church, it is time to awake from our sleep! To use an example of the Apostle Peter, I am saying to the Church today and Church, remember it:

“Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” – Acts 3:6. Church, children of God, co-heirs with Christ Jesus, it is time to get up and start doing, start walking in the Power and Authority of Jesus Christ!
