3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
Whatever? What a great word. In Japanese, nandemo is the way we say that. It is such an open opportunity. The Almighty God is our God of opportunity. He turns a moon worshiper (Abraham) to a father of many nations. He turned one of the youngest boys (Joseph) in a large family to the 2nd in command of the most powerful nation of the time. He transformed an illiterate plumber in the UK from an unknown to one of the greatest ministers of all time (Smith Wigglesworth). He turned a pastor’s son with no college degree into an anointed pastor of the fastest growing church in America (Joel Osteen).
God is the god of opportunity. He has a great plan for all of us but we must step into that plan. Without stepping into the plan we have a simple life that can be downright mundane. But when you accept the calling God has for you, you can change your world for Jesus the Messiah.
I picture a guy working in a factory in Japan. They make products that are shipped all around Japan and even to some other nations. This guy works with other foreigners but even more Japanese. In his prayer time and time in the Word, he gets so filled with the love of God for his coworkers that he begins to pray and intercede for them daily. In a matter of weeks, the job becomes very easy. People feel such peace when they go to the work-place that they begin to enjoy work more, all because one guy decided to stand in the gap for the men and women he works with.
God moves on the place and people get saved at lunch, after work, at break times. People start coming to church and get excited about the word of God. They see the awesome opportunity that God made for them and tell others. Revival breaks out in Japan. God is all over that Japanese factory because one guy decided to pray and share the Word about the Messiah and how his life was changed. His actions changed a factory, changed a church, changed an area, changed a nation!
God has an opportunity lined up for you. Will you take it? Will you step up and pray for you workplace, your family, your neighborhood? Will you be bold and tell your hurting friend that Jesus can heal that hurt? Will you lay hands on the sick and pray the prayer of faith over them? Will you bless the poor so that they can get a hold of God’s Word and grab on to God’s Biblical plan of prosperity for them. When you do, you will be so glad you did.
Revival is coming to Japan! Revival is coming to your nation. Revival starts with each and every one of us; right where we are, right where we work. Don’t miss the opportunity.
