Pardon me while I pour out (no pun intended) what I got in my quiet time -- another word picture. Sorry -- I can’t help it -- this just seems to be how God speaks to me!
Child, I AM able to transform the heart of even the most wayward and lost LAMBS. Have mercy in your heart, Daughter, for these LAMBS. Hear them bleating. Help Me by encouraging silence all around, praying for them, not stepping into My path so they become fixed on you instead of Me.
Hear – then do. First things first, and the first is hearing. Knowing. Then and only then the doing. Empowered by My Holy Spirit, the doing. Only then.
You are part of Christ! Part of His Body! You actually serve as a PORE whose earthly work is to POUR prayers to heaven and through Christ.
Wow Lord, what an amazing picture. One living stone – me, us, all believers – radiating something of value! Pavement, golden pavement, it is we who pour it out, inviting the entrance of Almighty God into all the situations and circumstances we encounter. As a PORE in the Body of Christ, I am to be like a cement mixer, POURing out prayers, focusing on pavement production, for You, Lord Christ, ought to have gold beneath You when You enter in.
The photo is not me, but it captures how I feel about the word picture above -- and it might as well be me because it's exactly how I look when I walk with Roobie at the beach!
