I think most of us have had the experience of being in one of those long lines which are set up to keep people moving along…like at an amusement park. Where you get in line and are actually pretty close to the attraction, but the design has you make multiple turns as you go right and left and slowly move along. Like a slow-motion maze.
At church tonight, God helped me to see how we need to be a gentle witness to those who feel like there is a long line to know God and accept Jesus. Times when they seem so close, but just aren’t quite there yet.
My prayer for us tonight is to ask God to guide us to those hurting or spiritually seeking who feel like they are in a long, slow line…..like they have to wait and wait to get to and through that spiritual turnstile. They may be so close but yet, feel they are so far away.
Interesting how God would put this message on my heart tonight with an urgency to share it with you. Perhaps you know exactly who that person is you are going to reach out to!
“Don’t you have a saying, “It’s still four months until harvest? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.”
