“And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call upon my name, and I will hear them: I will say, it is my people; and they shall say, The Lord is my God.” Zechariah 13:9
‘Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.” Hebrews 12:6
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4
“Then shall they cry unto the Lord, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.” Micah 3:4
1 Peter 1:23
“Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.”
Here is a great passage for us to ponder. Along with that may I ask you a question? What do you expect? I am talking about daily issues in the presence with the Lord. How can we be more effective? Do you expect the Father to send new prospects daily unto you to be a witness for Him? In order to reap one must sow. If you are not sowing seeds, then you can not expect to reap any harvest. Eagerly seek the presence of the Lord, use that presence to be able to reach the many souls that are not saved and on their way to hell. If you have family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, become a walking witness to them, ask them about their “true” and “honest” relationship with the Lord. He is the way, the truth, and the life, no one can come unto the father except by Him. May the Lord use you as His instrument to tell others about Jesus.
