“In the same way Your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost” (Matt 18:14)
If you try to ‘save’ one thousand people in the same time, you may end up frustrated, tired, and depressed. If you remain focused, looking unto Jesus, doing only what you see Him do, then you will be able to save one ‘little’ soul at a time. Ministry is a source of discouragement for the proud but a source of great encouragement for the humble. What a wonderful Savior! Humble King! My Lord Jesus Christ!
In Christ I declare:
I am lead by the Spirit! I will seek and find a needy soul and bring peace to him! I do not discriminate anyone, for Christ does not discriminate! I shall seek God and the interests of His kingdom! I shall not seek success for success sake! I leave my ideas of success at the altar! I shall not despise the day of little beginnings and little encounters! I shall be grateful for everything, every day!
In Jesus’ name,
