Greetings in the Majestic Name of our God!
As I write this letter, I do so not only at the beginning of a new year, but also in remembrance of what I once heard someone say when they were asked if there’s anything that God cannot do. The answer was simple,
“God cannot move where there is no cry.”
He then went on to share that this is the reason why the Holy Spirit forbad Paul to go into Asia, not just once but twice. It was filled with eastern mysticism, idolatry, and cultic practices. In other words, they did not want or have any desire for the gospel.
Now personally, I believe there’s some merit to this thought. In fact, this is the very truth that Jesus shares in Matthew 6:23 when he says, “If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” In other words, if what you believe to be true is a lie, then in reality, you are walking in the greatest darkness of all because you will be content, even defensive, to remain there.
On the other hand, when there is a cry, such as Paul saw in the vision of the man of Macedonia, God can move incredibly. By the way, the man in the vision wasn’t actually a man, it represented the cry of a people who longed for the truth of God.
Well as we enter this new year, I want to challenge you. Do you really want to see a move of God? Do you really believe that we can possess the gates of our enemy? Do you really believe that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us? Well let me challenge you with what Paul told the men on the ship when they had lost all hope, “Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.”
May God bless and stir the cry of your heart richly!
