Minister Joseph Shepherd

One of the many things that have been resonating within me this week is self-reflection. I’ve taken time to reflect on who I am and where I am to go as a believer in Christ. In this reflection, I’ve come to the realization that there are some areas where improvement is needed. It goes without saying that I am not perfect, and I pray that I don’t make excuses to not be available for kingdom purposes. If this was my last 24 hours here on this Earth, what would be the last thing that I talked about? Not all things are considered bad, but if it isn’t for the edification of Elohim, why should that be important to you? There are two things that I consider myself to be an advocate of, and that’s passion and zeal. These two things cultivate the fire inside of us to bring forth the gifts that the Father has given for kingdom use.

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. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

James 1:17-20

In reading James, we are to continue to be vessels that radiate light at all times; exposing the darkness that may currently be around us at all times. How can we expose the darkness if we have an on/off switch to what the Father wants to get out of us? I pray that each and every one of you reading this would get rid of that switch for good. We are to be readily available at all times with a burning zeal; always ready to move, to go, and be of service. As we are instructed to Go Ye, The Father, undoubtedly will provide all that you need mentally, physically, and spiritually.

I pray that as we continue to occupy the Earth, that we are to remember to continue to be in tune with the Holy Spirit. This not only helps us to get out of our own way but shows the Father that we trust him more and more. I pray that those of you who have allowed the cares of this life to dim your light would repent and ask for more spiritual endurance. I pray that I, and anyone reading this, would continue to press forward in continuing to share God’s word in a world that wants to shut him out. I pray that something that I have said in this blog has blessed you. Go out and help someone today; always radiating the light of Yeshua.
