Permission to Pursue to Recover
When I woke up I knew that God is calling His chosen people to be salt to the earth, not to lose our flavor or to conform to the world but to be converted, and transformed by His Spirit not the spirit of this world.
13 “You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. 14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
We do not convert using the way of the wicked but the way of the righteous. It is time to prepare for a rescue mission.
1 Sam 30:8 -David asked the Lord should I chase after this band of raiders? Will I catch them? And the Lord told him, Yes, go after them. You will surely recover everything that was taken from you!
God is giving his chosen permission to go on a rescue mission. It is time to recover them all. The only way the sheep follows its shepherd is by hearing the sound of his voice.
