Special Forces

“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” Matthew 4:19

The spirit of these warriors is like the spirit of God’s men.  In fact, when God finds a man who is passionate for His purposes, trained in the Word, filled with the Spirit, humble in heart, He will send that man into situations unsuited for others.  The men, like the missions, are different, even odd, but they are custom trained for these jobs — jobs only they can do.  Wondrously stunned God’s men have said to me, “If you’d have asked me ten years ago if I’d be doing this, I would’ve said you were crazy or something real close.”

Today, we’re called on to do certain missions that only we are trained and equipped for.  God tactically places us  in certain groups of men whether it be seats on an airplane, at work, at home with our family, in cars, in offices and countless situations to help others see God or experience His plan in their situation. God would have us love this kind of life, not be fearful of it. How often have we condemned ourselves for not doing or saying such and such?  These are times when God has us take inventory and his Spirit reveals to us the need to reach out and gives us sensitivity and knowledge on how to step up and deliver in the situation we find ourselves in. Our hearts are humbled and open to our response to his ability.

You’ve been saved from yourself, connected to God’s Holy Spirit, and inserted tactically into life and relationships to accomplish these missions. Remember it’s not all about you; it’s all about Him and his view of you. The truest thing about you is not what you think of you but what He thinks of you.


Father, you will make me a fisher of men.
