"And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see; and ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the Lord, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep; that the Lord called Samuel: and he answered, here am I." 1Samuel 3:2-4
IN JESUS TODAY!
A time such as this, where the lamp of God has maybe dimmed and some would say has gone out in the temple of the Lord, where the fire of Jesus has become a cool mist within the church, however refreshing this mist may be, there comes a time for a revival fire! There is a quiet, a silence today, a soft coming and going of a swarm of lukewarm believers that is content with blending in with the unbelieving world, and there is a thirsting from some for more, still what is troubling is that there is many that are content with singing a few songs, and then slip out of the church undetected until next weekend’s service. Awake! Awake! Is God calling you? Have you been laid down to sleep for a time, but are now hearing him call? Say unto the Lord, "Here am I" Use me! God is calling unto those willing servants that see the world's condition and are moved with compassion and are grieved by the status or condition of things today. Rise up! Stand up and Go! As it is written, "Then said he unto his Disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few, pray ye therefore unto the Lord of the harvest that he will send forth laborers into his harvest." Mathew 9: 37, 38
It's time to get up from this sleep and answer God's call, say unto him, "Here am I Lord, Use me!" and he will use you and ignite a fire in our hearts once again!
