In verse 4, the He says, “They will spring up among the grass like willows by the watercourses.”
“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborer into His harvest.'” Matthew 9:36-38
Lord, we ask for the expansion of Deeper Still. Father, will you send forth the laborers into the field for Your harvest. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
I saw across the table from a friend explaining the ministry of Deeper Still. She had never heard my story and tears welled up in her eyes as she listened intently realizing I had an abortion at age 19.
She immediately loved the ministry of Deeper Still and healing the abortion-wounded. Being pro-life, she asked in an affirming and inquiring way, “Does this ministry do anything preventative about abortion?”
Pausing for just a moment, I directed her to one of our ministry partners, a local pro-life crisis pregnancy center, but then the Holy Spirit interrupted and I began to explain how this ministry is preventative.
“Society spews the lies that abortion is no big deal, it is just a procedure, it is just a blob of tissue, it is my body and I can do whatever I want with no consequences. When these post- abortive men and women are truly free, they become an army of voices rising up for truth. And that is how Deeper Still is a preventative ministry.”
We need women and men free to be a voice of truth, so they can then, in turn, go into the fields and become co-laborers for the harvest in the Kingdom of God. We need this ministry in all states throughout the US and into the world for truth to arise and darkness to be dispelled. Thank you praying and continuing to pray for the message of truth to spread throughout the globe.
Jesus wasn’t afraid to take death head on nearly 2000 years ago and He persists in pushing back the darkness. The enemy laughed and thought he won the day Jesus hung on the cross. However, he didn’t know the end of the story. From the moment Jesus cried “It is finished”, the enemy’s laughter ceased. In that moment, he was finished, death was defeated and the curse of sin conquered.
Perhaps you may not believe He was there with me that day. “If I make my bed in hell, behold, you are there.” Ps 139: 8. He was there.
I wouldn’t allow the Lord to rescue me that day. The hardness of my heart wouldn’t allow the Lord to penetrate at that time. However, the Lord knew there would be a day when He would have my heart once more and I would be truly and fully His again. He knew there would be a day when victory would be my shout and cry and the enemy’s laughter would cease. The Lord knew what the enemy meant for evil, He would use for good, for the advancement of His Kingdom.
No, the Lord is not afraid of the dark. He knows the end of the story and the victory is His.
