Breakthrough, to save the one!

Breakthrough, to save the one!

Just as before, I saw an icebreaker boat burst through the ice. Creating overthrow and revival. Those on the boat rejoiced. Those that clung to the ice panicked.

Positioned from above, I could see all parts of the icebreaker boat. There were small people huddled at the front of the boat, just behind the bow. The crouching people could feel the power of the surge forward as the ice broke. But they were too scared to stand up and take part.

Waves of power made my heart beat faster as I felt the breakthrough from the Lord.

Toward the middle of the boat, I saw people standing tall throwing out nets to gather those in who were not part of the move of the Lord. Those that clung to the ice in desperation. Unable to let go of their old thinking and embrace what the Lord was doing.

As those that threw out nets and gathered people in continued to labor and rejoice, they also feared. They operated in double-mindedness, calling out for more workers and at the same time living in fear that there was not enough room on the boat to handle all the rescued people. They believed they were on a revival or breakthrough mission they hadn’t fully embraced that it was a rescue mission.

When I asked the Lord to reveal the truth, He said, “It was always a rescue mission. It has never not been a rescue mission. I will always and forever desire to pull the lost into the Kingdom of God. Those that huddled under the power of the breakthrough thought they were too small to make a difference. This is a lie; they have the same size and authority as those that stood. Those that stood and harvested also operated under a lie. In reality, there is no end to the ability of the boat to gather more. And as those that are rescued enter into the boat and accept my love. They will reach down and gather the next. One by one.”

          “There is to be no huddling down, no fear, no I wish or I would do it but … No there is only trust and obey, and move to the next person. It is a privilege to serve and be part of the miracles. You can trust the boat is more than large enough. My provision is exceedingly, abundantly above what you ask or think.”

 Join the miracle.


Save the one

Humbled again by the Lord to be allowed to feel His power and yet faithful mercy. He continues to amaze me with how much He loves us. Breathtaking. I ponder how patient He is with us.

          I know there are places in my heart and mind that I operate from double-mindedness. Where I believe, and am working toward one goal and yet my thinking is also in a place of doubt and working in the opposite direction of His will.

          We can neither huddle into the amazing feeling of the power of the breakthrough but not help others nor fear that the provision of the Lord is not enough. We can’t believe that we will reach the end of what He can provide and therefore capsize.

          When we labor with Him, not for Him, and certainly not against Him. Then we get to be a part of the miracles. We get to see people saved and set free.

          I question how many times do I worry about the what-ifs instead of running to the desperate. Somehow I forget I was once desperate. I forget that I still have loved ones clinging to the ice that can’t hear from me, but might be open to another harvester.

Prayer for you and me: Send the harvesters, Lord. The ones who will throw out the net pull one in and do it again. Save those on our lists that are unsaved. Send us to the next person wherever and whenever that looks like. We surrender ourselves to be a portion of Your miracle. To go and save the one. You have the power to save and You still do. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Save the one

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. ” (Luke 15:4-7, ESV)
