You Have a Ministry

Recently, Beth Moore held a conference in Washington D.C. where she sent the woman off with this commission. I was not there, but I read it and thought it was powerful and wanted to share it with you all...

My Dear Sister,
The God of Glory
Has called you.
You have a ministry.
In Christ, you are enough for that ministry.
Never forget that showing God off is your ministry.
No matter what,
Keep your heart in your ministry.
Unveil your face
And serve others with authenticity.
Always remember
That the power is in God's Presence.
Let nothing Come between you
And intimacy with God.
Keep moving forward
From glory to glory.
Let God thin that veil.
Remember, ministry is not about position.
It's about people.
Let name after name Be written on your heart.
Do not seek great things for yourself,
Seek a great God.
As you leave this place,
Go in a fresh anointing.
He who turns water into wine
Turns wimps into warriors.
You have a ministry.
Go fulfill it.

Finally Free

What does it mean to be free? One of the definitions in the dictionary describes the word free as, "released from something specified that controls, restrains or burdens". What are the chains that are restraining you and keeping you from the "release" and incomprehensible freedom that is found in Christ? No sin, no pain, no addiction, no choice you've made in the past could bind you up so tightly that Jesus cannot break you free from in an instant. No matter how strong your chains, He can and will set you free if you will let Him.
John 8:36 - "If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed."
Psalm 118:5 - "In my anguish I cried to the Lord, and He answered by setting me free."
