Mission minded: Go and compel them to come!!
Don’t judge others or your own situation by what you see with the natural eye, because sometimes God might be taking them or you through a renovation process. Renovations are messy!!! Renovations cause inconvenience!!! Renovations come with a high cost!!! But, the finished product is so worth it!!! God knows the beginning and the end, so just trust Him as He refines you, and show grace and mercy to others as He does a mighty work in their life too. Get ready, get ready to come out as pure gold, a vessel of honor, better than before!!
Words To Stand On…
Psalm 149:4 (KJV)
4 For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.
3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
Walk It Out…

What do you need to let go of or stop doing immediately? What do you need to begin doing? Pray and listen. Now step out in faith and go forth in Jesus name!
