Are you ready?
Are you awake?
Have you forgiven those you need to forgive so that you can share the greatest news of forgiveness?
Are you one with others so that you can be one with Him?
Have you laid down your ego and your logo so that you can facilitate His glory and jump into His story?
Are you rested up for the mission?
Is your heart ready? Your church? Your family?
Because it’s Australia time. From November 2018 to March 2019 we are going to experience a Great Summer Harvest, and we need to be ready.
What sort of a harvest am I talking about?
A harvest of souls.
Mothers, Daughters, Sisters, Brothers, Fathers, Sons, Friends and Enemies.
Many many people will get saved, set free, and sent out in freedom and fullness of life this summer.
Thousands will receive the love of Jesus for the first time.
Many more will wake up to the full reality of the love of Jesus, the heart and blessing of the Father, and the power of the Holy Spirit!
And we need to be ready.
Queensland will see so many come to Jesus that the church will have no choice but to come together as one to simply cope with the logistics of so many salvations and so much gospel activity.
Western Australia will never again be divided and they will feel such freedom in the unity God pours out and the harvest that comes their way.
News reports will tell of a great turning to Jesus from Tasmania to Tamworth and Festivals of Hope will be the norm across our nation.
Literal and spiritual floods are coming to our continent.
The tide is rising, the waves are crashing, and the time has come to join God in this harvest.
You don’t want to miss this summer. You don’t want to miss this season.
Here’s just five ways we can all lean in together.
Come together with other believers for the sake of God’s mission. We can’t afford to fish with fishing lines at this stage of the harvest, we need to come together around a net, and work together to bring in the wave of people that are about to come to Christ. Lean into things like Awaken the Valley / North / City, Awakening Australia, and the Graham Tour. This is going to take humility, to acknowledge that you can’t do it on your own, but your humility in unity will bring about the greatest breakthroughs, for you and those around you.
I feel a real need to encourage you to rest. Rest up, value the principle of the Sabbath, because it’s going to be a summer full of activity and you will need the strength He gives as you sit with Him. But rest for a reason, don’t sit so long that you miss what He is doing!
Share Jesus. Everywhere, with everyone. Each day, I encourage you to pray this prayer. “Lord, who needs to hear of your love today?” Then speak every time you feel Him say, “that person!” Trust Him with the outcomes of your obedience, simply obey and trust, He will do what He wants with what you give.
5. Give God all the Glory.
Through it all, give God all the glory. One sure way to kill revival and to dampen any harvest is to start to take God’s glory for His story. It’s all from and for Him. Give Him all the glory for what is about to come!
Can you see the field is white for harvest? Let’s put on our boots and step out into the sun as one. Can you see the swell is forming, let’s catch the wave together!
