Minister Joseph Shepherd

As saints, we have been hearing a lot about consistency during our time of fellowship. As we know, the time for Yeshua to return is coming even closer than we can think. Spiritually, the sense of urgency that I, as well as other believers, should feel is growing stronger. In this season, we do not have time to take too many deep breaths while standing in the same spot. We are to be continuous in praying, fasting, and reading our word. I will be the first to admit that as I type this I have not been all in to doing this. Still, I pray on the behalf of the saints that we come to a place of repentance so that we invite Holy Spirit in. Just as it says in Hebrews 13:8, we are to be Christ-like; never wavering or taking breaks from our ministry calling.

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

Hebrews 13:8

Apostle Harris, for those who may not know him, is a powerful man of God. Here recently in the gift of prophecy that flows through him, he was able to share something so simple. Although simple, it held a lot of power, and it spoke to how I was viewing Holy Spirit. In paraphrasing, he mentioned that I don’t give Holy Spirit a chance to be creative. I stopped to think about it and I suggest that you think about this as well. In those things we pray for, do we prematurely know what we want and ask for that particular thing? I think many of us can attest to that, but, we should go into prayer with no agenda, just seeking the Father. It should be done this way so that the Father has a chance to produce something far greater than we can even imagine.

This in itself is limiting, and somewhat manipulating, what God has for us. All we have left is Faith and Grace to go before us. At this time in our lives, there are various things that we have no control over. I pray that when we are in a position to control our circumstances, instead, we would say to the Father “I can achieve this mentally, but spiritually, I trust you to lead me in the right direction.” This builds our faith, along with our intimacy with the Father. He wants nothing more but for us to consider Him in all things.

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”

James 1:17
