“Released To Do His Will” – Now Think On This by Steve Martin

Feb. 4, 2020  Steve Martin, Love For His People, Charlotte, North Carolina USA

“While they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then, when they had fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away. So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit…” Acts 13:2-4, NASB

With a show of your hand(s), how many of you have ever wondered, “Why did it take so long for me to do what You put in my heart to do, Lord?” As in, I wanted to do this since I was 10 years old, 24, 30, and even 55. Why so long?

Do you know what His Holy Spirit said back to me?

“You had to go through several things so I could trust you when I actually let you do them now.”

Isn’t that a good Father? One who trains us. Grows us. Prepares us. Shows His faithfulness along the journey, and then releases us. To do His will.

Remember telling your child as they were growing up, asking and asking to do things, and your wise response to them was, “When you are grown up, you will.”

Let me say this as clearly and as loudly as I can, in writing.

Many of you are now being released to do His will. Not tomorrow. Not 10 years from now. But now.

You graduated from the 12th grade. You had your boot camp training. You succeeded in getting the 4 and 8-year degrees. All in the Lord’s timing. Now you are ready.

The doors are opening. The provision is coming. The preparation has been completed. Jesus is sending you out just as He has always done, after the time of being with Him, learning His ways, knowing His heart, and equipped to be His ambassador to the world.

How long did it take Moses? Joseph? Jesus (Yeshua) Himself? And let us not forget the time Paul had in the desert.

As I am, your hair may not be colored with the darker color now that it could be. (I want to be careful here so as not to offend those who do cover up the silver and gray!)

When people see you, they may now see the wrinkles, or don’t quite understand the memory-filled mind banks that take a bit longer to retrieve information stored over 60-70 years. Yes, it does take longer to go through all those mind data files.

Or if you are as Timothy was and Paul had to encourage him, writing, “Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.” 1 Timothy 4:12, NASB

You too have been through the “training and preparation” years, and even if some may think, “She is not old enough yet”, He says you are.

The time has come. We are being released to do His will. I encourage you to do so.

The world awaits the risen Church, the believers in the nations who are called by His Name and who will respond accordingly. The nations need to see His Light, His Glory, His Healing Power, His Life. Let it come through you as you walk it out in His power and grace.

Now think on this.

Ahava and shalom,

Steve Martin, Founder/President
