What about Brother Yun?
Anyone ever heard of these people?
These are people who TRUSTED JESUS ...BELIEVED HIM...and when they SURRENDERED their lives to Him they saw Him LEAD their lives according to His purposes...
and do GREAT and MIGHTY things in and through them...according to His will.
EXPECTANT of what their God could and would do in their midst because He called them. And His PLEASURE to have servants who obeyed Him even when it was HARD.
They weren't PERFECT...they weren't POPULAR...they weren't RICH...
they just LOVED JESUS and wanted to KNOW Him and SHARE Him with others...
and SERVE Him.
To be used to reveal the PERSON of Jesus
who is ALIVE ...RISEN...and the
LOVER of our SOULS!
to those He led them to...
in the jungles of Equador...
to those who hated them....
to those who were the poor...the orphans...the widows...the "least of these"...
to the NATIONS....Equador...Britain....China....Southern Africa...Rwanda...Israel...(represented here)...
And their SURRENDER and MINISTRIES have since impacted the WORLD!

"Go where I call you. I know you are frail and weak, and ridiculous and unable...dust...but step off this cliff to the unknown...KNOWING that you know ME and 'I will not LEAVE you or FORSAKE you'....'I loved you before you loved Me'. 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.' (Jeremiah 29:11). 'Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.' (John 20:29)"
I have read about each of these people, over the years, and with each book I would have to put it down...several times... and sit and WEEP because I would always ask,
"Lord...could I be able to make that choice for you in those difficult moments of surrender? To be ridiculed, rejected, spit upon, tortured, killed for my love for You?"
just Jesus and me.
"Cheryl...this isn't about what I say or what anyone on this earth says. It's about what God says and who God is. You need to do business with Him."
all that I did not understand.
(the Elizabeth Elliots, the George Muellers, the Rees Howells,
the Bishop Johns and the Tom Herricks)
...I want to know YOU!....
so. I accept all that I don't understand and accept that I don't understand it.
Lead me to You."
I had to learn what GRACE was...and how I SO DIDN'T DESERVE or could WORK for the incredible LOVE relationship with the God of the Universe...the King of Kings...Jesus.
I can't wait to spend the next 22 years going deeper with You.= )
What happened Sunday is just Jesus saying...
"It's Time to GO...THIS is MY PROVISION for you...because I am YOUR GOD...You have chosen to TRUST Me and I have a work for you to do. GO.
'I have come that they might have LIFE and have it ABUNDANTLY' - John10:10
I love you. "
...for YOU!!!! ...
It's SUCH an AMAZING revelation to me! Like peeling off another layer of an onion...or digging and digging to find a whole new underground city! SO COOL!
AMEN and AMEN!!!
"Take my time here on this earth
And let it glorify all that You are worth
For I am nothing,
I am nothing without You."
