“What Say You? – Now Think On This message by Steve Martin – Love For His People, Inc.

April 28, 2019
Greetings friends of Love For His People.
We are counting down the hours before Laurie and I fly to Israel to spend time with those we have supported for many years, through the ministry of Love For His People. For some, travel can be exhausting, but when I go to Israel I am energized. That happens when you walk in the plans and purposes that the Lord has for you and me. His Holy Spirit renews and refreshes us, as we remain yoked with Him and what He is doing in our midst, and the nations He has placed us in and called us to.
Each of you has a place in His Body to walk in understanding and then to walk it out. Be faithful in your calling, and you will experience adventure while being a blessing to others.
Before I head out, on this my 20th trip to the Land given to the Jews, chosen by our Lord, I wanted to share this word with you, What Say You? (This message also has the same title as my 21st book published this week.) This word, and book offer inspiration on how we can then live and move in this life, to cause godly effect and actually cause something positive to happen or bring about in our lives, our families, our cities, our workplaces, and our country.
In addition to that message, when a good friend of ours in Israel let us know the new name of their work there, in support of those making aliyah (immigrating to Israel), it reminded me of a message I did three years ago. So I reposted it on our website and was amazed at the response. Check it out for yourself: A Lighthouse and Watchman.
My prayer is that each of you is being a lighthouse in the midst of those the Lord has put you among. And for those of you who are prayer warriors (each of us in some way needs to be), interceding for the peace of Jerusalem, and also our nations, be encouraged as you pray and watch, both in the natural and the spiritual.
Until I get back from Israel, hold down the fort!
Ahava and shalom,

P.S.S. Plans continue to move forward for the April 3-4, 2020 event we are calling the Gathering Together” event. Church and ministries in the Charlotte, NC/Fort Mill, SC areas coming together, with 12 speakers, 3 worship bands, and worship dance teams. I am excited. It has been over 16 years since the Lord first spoke this to me about our local believers coming together as we can. That is His heart – unity among His people – Jews and Gentiles, male and female, old and young. I hope you want to be a part of what the Lord is calling out to His people to do. Let me know…

“And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.” (Acts 4:31, NASU)
There sure are a lot of words being spoken today. It amazes me at times how much people can talk, and after listening for a while, do they really say anything that you will still remember, or adhere to, a few years, weeks, or even days later? A lot of what is said gets recorded and then archived for decades, but is what has been said really worth saying in the first place and keeping for time?
In all this talking, is wisdom and godly knowledge being shared? Are lives being changed for the better? Is what one says as truth really the truth, or do they have to come back later and acknowledge that their improper lack of memory or speculation about a person or matter just wasn’t the case? (If they even admit their error, or purposely said lie.)
So much of what is being spoken is not worth hearing. It clogs up our minds with garbage, and as it is truly noted, “Garbage in, garbage out.” As a matter of speaking, of course.
So, what say you? That may not be proper English, but again, anything goes these days, right? I am being facetious. Rather flippant too.

“I am God. I have called you to live right and well. I have taken responsibility for you, kept you safe. I have set you among my people to bind them to me, and provided you as a lighthouse to the nations, to make a start at bringing people into the open, into light: opening blind eyes, releasing prisoners from dungeons, emptying the dark prisons.” (Isaiah 42:6-7, THE MESSAGE)
We have been hearing much in our Sunday gatherings on our roles as being watchmen. I take that word seriously, and act on it – to pray, to proclaim, to write accordingly, and then to post on our blog Love For His People. Even as the watchman of old sought the Lord, listened to His voice, and spoke out what they were told, I too want to be one who does that.
While being faithful as a watchman to bring the warnings that come with the territory, there is also always hope in the midst of it all, as that comes straight from the Father’s heart. His light brought forth, like a lighthouse, guides us through the sea of life.
Jesus’ love for the nations causes Him to bring awareness to His people of what is coming. His prophetic words, recorded in the historical Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, have proven over and over again of His loving actions. The Lord God of Israel, the Messiah, has continually sought to draw us to Himself through those writings, and current warnings.

What say you about where you stand in God’s plan?
Are you fitting in? Do you care? Are you where you think you are, or where you think you should be?
These messages have been written to bring you encouragement, some further insight, and to help you get to where you, and He, wants you to be in the Body of Christ.
The Lord is putting His people together – both in Israel with the Jews making aliyah and with believers around the world finding out their place and purpose in congregations.
What Say You? offers inspiration on how we can then live and move in this life, to cause godly effect and actually, cause something positive to happen or bring about in our lives, our families, our cities, our workplaces, and our country.
May you be about His business, as He directs you in your going.
