You Said

“You said, Ask and you will receive
Whatever you need
You said, Pray and I’ll hear from heaven
And I’ll heal your land

You said Your glory will fill the earth
Like water the sea
You said, Lift up your eyes
The harvest is here, the kingdom is near

You said, Ask and I’ll give the nations to you
O Lord, that’s the cry of my heart
Distant shores and the islands will see
Your light, as it rises on us

You said Your glory will fill the earth
Like water the sea
You said, Lift up your eyes
The harvest is here, the kingdom is near

You said, Ask and I’ll give the nations to you
O Lord, that’s the cry of my heart
Distant shores and the islands will see
Your light, as it rises on us ” – Hillsong United

This song brought tears to my eyes this morning. I can’t help but be overwhelmed when I hear something so Biblical and so devoted to God’s mission. But it becomes more than just an outpour of emotion.

Church? Are we asking for the nations?

Does our heart break for the nations without the Lord as their God? Are we compelled to pray for open doors and tendered hearts, willing to hear and receive the gospel? Are we praying for tenderizing to the harvest? Are we praying for more laborers for the harvest? Does it break our hearts to think of the lost? Do we feel charged to go? Do we feel compelled to do something- anything- that more would be added to God’s number? Are we asking for the nations?

O that distant shores and islands would see your light and it rises on us!!!

Please, Jesus.

– to God be the glory.

Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
