"The God of our ancestors has chosen you to know his will and to see the Righteous One and to hear words from his mouth. You will be his witness to all the people of what you have seen and heard. And now what are you waiting for?" (Acts 22:14-16. emphasis mine)
Words—prophetic words—to Paul, yes; and, yet, words that speak volumes to my heart in this quiet, early hour.
I, too, have been chosen to know, to see, to hear, and to be a witness. Obviously, not to the same extent of the great Apostle Paul, but in the perfectly-designed, personal way that my Father has ordained just for me, in this space and time of history.
Lord, in the stillness and sanctity of this early hour, my heart cries out to know you more fully, see you more surely, hear you more clearly, and be your witness more authentically and courageously.
To joyfully share with others what I have personally experienced.
This is God's perfect will, his prophetic proclamation to every believer: to know, to see, to hear, and to be his witness, wherever he's strategically placed you, wherever he's strategically placed me, in whatever missions—great or seemingly small—he's placed before us.
This is the kind of believer that truly makes a Kingdom difference in this world.
Fellow sojourner, if this is not how you're presently living, what are you waiting for?
