We Are A People Reserved By The Lord
Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:
"While they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them’"
By God’s grace, you have been blessedly "set apart for Me." As God’s loved and blood washed children, Scripture declares that "He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father" (Revelation 1:6). This is what God has always wanted and now, in us as the body of Christ, this is what God has. Yet so many ignore this call of our Father, to minister to Him as a kingdom of priests. So when you, of your own free will, say "Yes" to your priesthood, you bless your Abba Father so much. The first thing He wants you to know, for sure, when you enter His Presence is that you have been "set apart for me." Ministering to the Lord, as a priest to the Lord, continually strengthens you in this call-of-love higher truth that you indeed have been "Set apart for Me."
You have been blessedly chosen of God to draw near as a priest into the inner court of His Presence. Every time you respond this call, you truly honor your Lord. When you minister to the Lord, you are saying "Yes" to God’s call of the priesthood. "Yes, Lord Jesus. I praise You that You have set me apart for You, as a minister in Your Presence, and then as You lead me in this Holy anointing out into this world. Thank You Lord. Oh Father in heaven, may Your whole church rise up in this same anointing of being this royal priesthood dedicated to You, to Your Presence, and to Your purpose. Hallelujah!
