In the book of Daniel we learn about three men who found themselves in Babylon as captives of the tyrant king Nebuchadnezzar. When they resisted allowing the culture to reshape their identity or erode their convictions they were threatened with death by fire…fire that ultimately would reveal their true character. Today we learn how God gives us the grace to match the heat of the fire have to walk into.
In Nehemiah we discover how Agents of Change gain a clear, unshakable calling from God. Before we gain this vision God must open our eyes to see it and give us the passion and to act on it. A Change Agent will need to pray first and then take action steps towards their God given vision. Do YOU see it yet?
As we look at the book of Ester we are reminded that God often puts us in places and positions for purposes that are greater than our personal perspective can see. Prayer and fasting is a discipline that can prepare us for our next season. Before we bring about change or influence we need to start with ourselves. Let us pray ‘Lord change me so I can be a tool used in your hand.’
