Nehemiah 6 Sanballat and Geshem sent to me, saying, “Come and let us meet together at Hakkephirim in the plain of Ono.” But they intended to do me harm. And I sent messengers to them, saying, “I am doing a great work and I cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and come down to you?”
There's a car jacking scam. It's rare, but it has and does still happen. It's where there's a body in the road that looks injured or dead. (But it's really a fake illness, fake crisis or statistic, trying to get your attention, trying to play on your compassion and get you to stop your journey).
You stop your car to make sure the person's okay. While you do, someone, the person you were trying to help threatens you and steals your car. If only, if only; you hadn't stopped at all.
The church is the car. Somethings you stop for, others you swerve round. At this time don't let the Church get Church-Jacked. Like Nehemiah don't stop the work.
I feel a Holy Ghost swerve coming on. Not going to stop momentum: but going to continue on the journey.
Can't stop and come down.
Can't discuss it, debate it, or slow down, just got to keep moving forward. There's people to get Saved, Churches to plant, Revival to be realised.
Go forward, even if you have to swerve. Just please, please...don't stop.
(This is from a vision in prayer recently)
Father forgive me for stopping for things I shouldn't. Forgive me for being distracted from loving You and building Your kingdom. Give me great discernment, and great courage today that I might run the race, receive the prize, and keep on track. All for Your Glory in Jesus' name amen.
