USA – The heart of the Father, February 20, 2019
Early in the morning, I awoke with a deep heaviness in my heart and the Father revealed to me that it was His Heart and pain that He was sharing with me. My wife and I know the journey that we went through the first 10 years of our marriage and not being able to have a child of our own. We also know the pain of losing a child. As Christians we are over-whelmed with opportunities to come together with others of faith for a variety of reasons and we pray that they are all gatherings in response to the call of God. As we look and think everyday about the children God has brought into our lives, we realize that we are God’s creation and that we were made by Him and for Him even before the world as we know it was created. Today in our own community, as well as communities throughout the nation, many of our children will be taken before they are even seen by any of us. It breaks the Father’s heart that many in His Church have not been willing to passionately and actively intercede on His behalf to reconcile everyone involved in abortion to their loving Father in heaven. We seem to have time for everything but that. Our church family, ministries and brother and sisters are always calling us together for various reasons which are pleasing to God and many respond. But on this matter, God Himself has called us. Although God could change it without us, He trusts His people to intercede.
“If My People, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My Face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
This is not a promise from the liberals, conservatives, Republicans or Democrats.
Neither is it a promise from your pastor, church family or ministry.
It is a promise from a loving Father that has entrusted to us the ministry of reconciliation.
Jesus said: “A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. In that day you will no longer ask Me anything. I tell you the truth, My Father will give you whatever you ask in My Name. Until now you have not asked for anything in My Name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” (John 16:21-24)
