Todd Nettleton, Chief of Media Relations and Message Integration at Voice of the Martyrs delivers a message on what it means to wait on God.
Only remember me, when it is well with you, and please do me the kindness to mention me to Pharaoh, and so get me out of this house. For I was indeed stolen out of the land of the Hebrews, and here also I have done nothing that they should put me into the pit.
Then it came to pass, at the end of TWO FULL YEARS…
And when forty years had passed, an Angel of the Lord appeared to him (Moses) in a flame of fire in a bush, in the wilderness…
Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse…
2 Corinthians 12:7-10
So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

All of the disciples received this Acts 1:8 call….”YOU WILL BE MY WITNESSES.” My MARTYRS.
If you are a disciple, then that’s your call too. If you live in _________, then that’s your assignment. If you live in Oklahoma, or Texas, or Australia, that’s your field. That’s your planting ground.
As disciples, we are all called to be witnesses, so let us:
- Hear from God. Regularly.
- Witness….WHEREVER we are. Prison. Palace. Mountaintop. Deepest valley. Witnesses witness wherever they are.
- LET GOD USE WHAT WE HAVE, no matter how much or how little it is.
- Leave a legacy
- LEAVE THE RESULTS UP TO GOD.
“You will be my witnesses…my martyrs.”
Let’s go out and be his witnesses this week!
