“This is what the Lord says to His anointed… whose right hand I take hold of… to open doors before him… I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, God… who summons you by name… I summon you by name and bestow on you a title of honor… I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from Me there is no God. I will strengthen you, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides Me… Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.” Isaiah 45:1-6, 22 (NIV)
Dear Only God and Father,
You spoke these words of Cyrus in the past, even before he walked the earth; and they still speak today. We are now the anointed ones, honored as Your children. We are the ones who can tell all the earth how to be saved! We can live and breathe and speak the gospel of Your salvation!
We will go where You lead, unearthing the treasure of eternal souls hidden in darkness. Remove the iron barriers of intimidation and fear placed before us. Let us walk on the level ground of faith in You. We own the words of eternal life; our treasure! Help us recognize opportunity in our path and treasure each soul as You do. Show them Lord, and we will tell them the good news that Jesus Christ saves sinners. True Treasure is just a turn away.
In Jesus Name Forever
