A Word For You
The Lord Jesus gave us an indication of when harvest time is. It’s Now!
In John 4:35 (NKJV), He said, “Do not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’ Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!” He wasn’t referring to the harvest of crops but to winning the souls of men – gathering fruits unto eternal life.
This month of September, we have been admonished by our great man of God to do the following;
Win souls everywhere: Our seeds of prayers are ripe and the harvest is ready. People everywhere are waiting to hear the preaching of the gospel to come into the kingdom. Don’t hold back; preach the gospel everywhere this month. It is harvest time.
Teach and disciple souls everywhere: Leading people to Christ is not the end of the work because, in harvesting, there is the gathering of the fruits into a storehouse. When you have won souls, set up structures to retain them where you’ve won them and eventually send them to win other people.
Give into God’s works: It’s time to commit financially to the gospel and be a viable financial partner in the gospel. As you do this, you can be sure that you are furthering God’s work and that it will turn out for your prosperity. No matter the economic hardship the world is experiencing, you will remain afloat and atop because you consistently give in to God’s work.
It’s an exciting time in the Kingdom of God because the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is getting closer. This is the month of harvest and we are winning souls everywhere by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Enjoy a great month of harvest!
Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes” - Romans 12:2 TPT
Your very personality is the expression of the contents and workings of your mind. In other words, who you are today is a function of your mind. Significant changes in your life stem from your mind. The three cardinal gifts of God – Eternal life, Righteousness, and the Holy Spirit – can’t be improved upon because they are perfect, but improvement in your character starts with your mind.
Understand that your reasoning doesn't change just because you're born again. It’s your responsibility to change it. That’s what we see in our theme scripture. Real transformation in the life of a Christian comes as a result of the renewal of his or her mind. It's God's word that can change your thinking and mental processes; otherwise, the same fears or issues that affected you before you got born again will continue to affect you. The scripture declares in Romans 10:17 that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word. Both faith and fear are produced by information; so the question is, how much of the Word do you allow into your heart to change your mindset? The real change comes from how submitted you are to the Word of God.
As a minister, don't get so preoccupied with other people’s faults or misdeeds that you neglect areas you might need to improve in yourself. Keep managing your mind with the Word to improve your value as an individual because the Lord can only walk with you to the extent that His Word affects your mind. God's word is a seed that you must plant in your heart for it to produce results in all that concerns you.
In your times of prayer and meditation, the word that the Lord brings to your spirit is also channeled to your mind. Soon enough your mind, your thoughts, your interests, and your priorities would be perfectly aligned with the Lord’s plans and purposes giving you lasting success and effectiveness in life and ministry.
