The LOST need to be rescued! I see many people LOST during this COVID 19 pandemic. They may look healthy and sound well on the outside, but dying spiritually under those MASKS! They are LOST because they aren’t living in their “NORMAL” Routines. I see a field of SHEEP scattered.
Some of the SHEEP were sad, some were weak, some were sad, some were dirty, some were angry, some were sick, some were bored, some were wounded and some were malnourished. Each of them have a problem and they need HELP. They need to be FOUND! Nobody is helping and searching for them.
“My people have been lost sheep.
Their shepherds have led them astray
and turned them loose in the mountains.
They have lost their way
and can’t remember how to get back to the sheepfold.” Jeremiah 50:6(NLT)
I spoke in my last post about changing HATS. What HAT are you wearing now and what HAT does the Lord want to place on your head? Some of you wear many HATS and have a Jack Of All Trades! He wants you to change your HAT. I see SHEPHERD HATS. The person who is willing to change their HAT to a SHEPHERD HAT, will be blessed beyond measure. Wearing this HAT will help protect, guide and watch over the LOST. If you wear the SHEPHERD HAT you have to act like one!
A SHEPHERD is a person who herds flocks or groups of animals like SHEEP. A SHEPHERD protects the SHEEP from animals that would attack them. They help the SHEEP from wandering and they take good care of them. As the Lord offers this HAT to you, he is also offering a STAFF! This STAFF has two purposes. It will give you a longer ARM and a longer REACH. Waiving this STAFF in your stretched ARM you STEER them in the RIGHT direction.
Each SHEEP(person) is different and we need to personally tend to them. Some SHEEP may need you to help them laugh to remove anger. Some may need a tissue to remove sadness. Some may need to rest to get their strength back. Some may need a clean bath to remove the dirt. Some may need chicken soup to ward off sickness. Some may need to play or talk so they aren’t bored. Some may need a band aid for their wound and some may need food and the word of God, so they aren’t malnourished. The Lord needs our HELP! He wants us to be a GOOD SHEPHERD, to HELP the LOST that are scattered. Jesus is our GOOD SHEPHERD, he will teach us and lead us.
“Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.” Mark 6:34(NLT)
We have to ASK the Lord on how we can HELP that person and he will share his secret on how to do it!
“Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.” Jeremiah 33:3(NLT)
If we love the Lord like we say we do, then we will HELP him! Jesus laid his LIFE down for us, its time for us to lay down our other HATS and put this one on!
There are many who have IGNORED the LOST and IGNORED their calling! There are many God has called to place the SHEPHERD HAT on, to tend and feed his SHEEP the word of God. To help guide them in paths of righteousness and protect them from the wolves, the packs of the enemy! They IGNORED it! They IGNORED being filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, because they cared more about themselves!
“What sorrow awaits the leaders of my people—the shepherds of my sheep—for they have destroyed and scattered the very ones they were expected to care for,” says the Lord. Therefore, this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says to these shepherds: “Instead of caring for my flock and leading them to safety, you have deserted them and driven them to destruction. Now I will pour out judgment on you for the evil you have done to them. But I will gather together the remnant of my flock from the countries where I have driven them. I will bring them back to their own sheepfold, and they will be fruitful and increase in number. Then I will appoint responsible shepherds who will care for them, and they will never be afraid again. Not a single one will be lost or missing. I, the Lord, have spoken!” Jeremiah 23:1-4(NLT)
During this COVID 19 pandemic the Lord needs our HELP with the LOST. Some have LOST their jobs. LOST their money. LOST their 401k. LOST their food. LOST their minds. LOST their peace. LOST their loved ones. LOST their happiness. LOST their spice in their marriage. LOST their fun in their children. LOST their toilet paper. LOST shopping. LOST school. LOST vacation trips. They LOST their way! When SHEEP are LOST they become highly agitated if it is separated from its group and threatened by the predator. Many are agitated from being separated from everyone during this pandemic. They are threatened by the COVID 19. They are scattered and need a SHEPHERD. When I go to the grocery store I see that people have LOST making eye contact and they have LOST their smile. I see them scatter!
God is doing something NEW! I feel it! There will be NEW ways God is doing things and it doesn’t mean they are bad. Put on your spiritual EYES to see it! Through this pandemic he will make things BETTER and CORRECT in the long run. Things were out of order and they needed to be changed. But, with change, many are LOST.
Will you HELP his SHEEP be FOUND? I can honestly say, I have been completely at PEACE during this pandemic. If you have had complete PEACE then he is calling you to put on the SHEPHERD HAT. If you are lost then I will HELP SHEPHERD you! I will do my very best to guide you. Just contact me!
“For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search and find my sheep. I will be like a shepherd looking for his scattered flock. I will find my sheep and rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on that dark and cloudy day. I will bring them back home to their own land of Israel from among the peoples and nations. I will feed them on the mountains of Israel and by the rivers and in all the places where people live. Yes, I will give them good pastureland on the high hills of Israel. There they will lie down in pleasant places and feed in the lush pastures of the hills. I myself will tend my sheep and give them a place to lie down in peace, says the Sovereign Lord. I will search for my lost ones who strayed away, and I will bring them safely home again. I will bandage the injured and strengthen the weak. But I will destroy those who are fat and powerful. I will feed them, yes—feed them justice!” Ezekial 34:11-16(NLT)
The image of God rejoices at the recovery of the LOST. Each person is precious to God. Stop hiding behind your MASKS! People say, “Look what I have LOST during this pandemic!” And I will say, “Look at what can be GAINED during this pandemic!”
Good shines BRIGHT in the dark! Our almighty God will use the Corona Virus to create NEW THINGS and NEW NORMALS! The Corona Virus HATES the BRIGHT SUNLIGHT and HOT TEMPERATURES! HERE COMES THE SUN!! He is bringing his HOT FIERY BRIGHT SUN! This radiant LIGHT will chase away DARKNESS! There will be such FRESH BRIGHT REVELATION upon us!
In his BRIGHT SUNLIGHT we will find the LOST and with the HOT TEMPERATURE of the SUN will be a refining that will bring HEALING to the LOST! Is your HEAD ready for your HAT?
Love and Blessings,
