Greetings Love For His People family and friends.
Each of us faces decisions daily, as we live in a constantly changing world, among those continually trying to remove eternal foundations given to us by the Living God of Israel. It is not an easy life, but then again, as promised, we will face trials and tribulations on this planet.
One question that my Lord, and yours, asks each of us quite often, “Are you willing?
Are we willing to keep walking in faith? Are we willing to hold the line for our kids and grandkids to follow in our footsteps, to keep pressing on and lifting up His standards?
Has that which He has called us to do burden us with things we’d rather not do?
Please read my full message entitled, Are You Willing? below. It is the 11th message from my new series, TIME TO ACT. The others can also be read on our ministry website: LOVE FOR HIS PEOPLE
Laurie and I enjoyed the time we had last week traveling to see the Ark Encounter (Noah’s Ark full-size replica) in northern Kentucky. As I love to do, to share with you and others, I recorded 7 short videos while there. Watch one or more: Ark Encounter
May the good Lord, the Faithful One, be your strength and encouragement this week.

Are You Willing?- Steve Martin
“Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, and from your relatives and from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you;” Genesis 12:1, NASU
When does the Lord stop asking you to do things that require faith? When is enough, enough?
As we continually grow in the ways of the Lord, there may come a time when we ask Him, “Haven’t I gone far enough, Lord? Can’t I just stop, and build a permanent place where You have brought me, where I have already reached in faith, after traveling so far?”
When I read about the faith of Abram, later changed by the Lord Himself to the name Abraham, I wonder how he did it. He was 75 when the Lord called him, as the Scripture says. Living to the age of 175, he was in his mid-years if we compare it to our length of life years in 2020.
In comparison to one I personally knew in my lifetime, a great Bible teacher named Derek Prince, he was 55 years old when the Lord directed him to move to Florida to start a new ministry, after living in England, Canada, and Seattle, Washington. Thus Derek Prince Ministries was founded, which still exists today in Charlotte, North Carolina, even after Derek passed on to glory at the age of 88 in 2003 in Jerusalem, where he and his 2nd wife Ruth had lived for his last 20 years of earthly life.
Hearing the last recorded words of Derek, he felt even after all his 88 years that he had not completely done all that he had been called to do. But seeing the fruit of his labor, he certainly walked in faith, and that pleased the Lord.
I consider Pat Robertson, founder of CBN, Regent University, Operation Blessing, and so much more, who even today at the age of 90 still appears regularly on the 700 Club daily program out of Virginia Beach, Virginia. As I read his autobiography, “I Have Walked With the Living God” (https://patrobertsonbooks.com/) faith builds in me to keep doing the same – walk in faith, and that with the Living God.
I can speak of my personal good friend Mordechai, 80 years of age, who also continues to be more committed than ever to hear the Lord, moving on as He directs. A gifted prophet and shofar blower, I get inspired just watching him, and hearing his faith in our Lord.
In all these examples, one thing that I am certain is this: they first responded to the Lord with the willingness to follow, at whatever cost it was. They did not stop along the way and say, “I have done enough. I have gone far enough. Now it is time to sit back and enjoy the rest of my years as I want, taking it easy.”
No, they did not. In their hearts, which came out of the Holy Spirit encouraging them on, they continued to commit themselves to His plans and purposes, to pursue His will, to do as the Father spoke to them.
Yeshua Himself said, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.” John 4:34, NKJV
As those who call themselves disciples of Jesus, Yeshua, we can do no less.
We have been called. We have been chosen. We have been given our mission, which is His mission, to bring His kingdom to the earth as it is in heaven.
As my good friend Mordechai says, “I have an assignment from the Lord. That will I do.”
Are you willing to do the same? As for me, I am saying, “Yes, Lord. Be it done to me according to Your Word.”
Do some walking with me. WALK WITH ME – Steve Martin Now over 357 to view! Just added 7 more from the Ark Encounter (Noah Ark full-size replica) in northern Kentucky. July 23-24, 2020
New book: Press On! No Matter the Cost
Those of us who have been called, anointed, commissioned for the King’s service has one thing going for us – we are not alone. The Holy Spirit, Ruach HaKodesh, has been promised by the Son Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, to always be with us. He is our Comforter, Our Director, the One Who will lead us on.
This book is meant to encourage you to continue to seek the Living God, the One Who left from Jerusalem, Israel, and is soon to return to Jerusalem, Israel. Be encouraged in your walk. Keep seeking the Lord above. Let Him direct your steps always, as you hear and obey.
