Some things are just worth fighting for. Your Divine health, the salvation of a friend, your children’s destiny in the Lord—these are just a few things we are called to fight for. What are you being asked to fight for today? Don’t shirk back. Take your stand in the barley field and fight for the seeds in your life. The enemy would love to devour them before they take root, but don’t let him. Fight for your harvest! And while you’re at it, know that the Lord of the Harvest fights along with you. He is a God of victory!
Passing the seed bucket yesterday may have started off a little confusing, but we made it through, and we saw a remarkable response to the missions needs that we made known. Over $2,000.00 was given to local and foreign missions yesterday! Thank you for sowing such abundant seed into the nations.
