”Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road."

Luke 10:4

In Luke 10:4 it says: “Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.” Be intentional and undistracted from the focus to which God has called you. In this world, there are many good things that are actually the enemy of the best things. We must focus on the “God” things to which we are specifically called and for which we are given the grace to accomplish. Stepping outside of the boundaries of our callings is dangerous and wasteful. Our own pride and relying on our own abilities may mean we forfeit fulfilling God’s best. Obeying God and limiting ourselves means we can go out in dependence on God alone for His supernatural provision. The cares of this life cannot steal the fruitfulness as we rely on Him. Our needs can help us then welcome the hospitality offered by people of peace which opens the door into a household for the gospel.

Acknowledge the Lord in all your ways and He will make your path straight. He will help you focus on the tasks He has uniquely prepared you to accomplish in your life on this earth and that will be where you find that His power, provision and favor rests. The Word tells us Jesus set His face like flint to go up to Jerusalem. Pray that God will keep your focus on Jesus and on your assignment expanding His Kingdom, trusting God will provide all you need as you “travel light” and move with the wind of the Spirit.

Ask God this week to give everyone involved in church planting movements a sense of their connectedness to the family of Christ as children of God. Practice listening to Holy Spirit daily for where He is sending you to prepare His way.

PRAYER FOR WORLD IN CRISIS: Counted Worthy of the Kingdom

God, our Merciful and Righteous Judge, as the faith and love of our sisters and brothers grows through these trials, thank You that You will count them worthy of the kingdom of God for which they are suffering.

2 Thessalonians 1:3-5  ”We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing. Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring. All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering.”
