In Luke 3:2 the Word of God came to John the Baptist while he was alone in the wilderness. The programs of the "church" of that day were in full operation, yet John was called apart to be with the Lord alone.
So also today, there are those who are spiritually hungry and seeking something more, who likewise are being called apart to be alone with the Lord for a time of preparation. As a result of his being alone with the Lord, John came into a oneness with the Lord that could not have been accomplished in any other way.
When John was asked who he was, his response testifies to this experience. He said: "I am 'The voice of one crying in the wilderness: "Make straight the way of the Lord," as the prophet Isaiah said'" (John 1:23).
Each one of us should come to the place where we also could make this statement, "I am the voice of one." In this season there is an compelling need for this "voice" to cry out in the midst of the frustrations and perils of our present-day (see Isaiah 40:3-5). We live in a world where we must have the grace, vision, and creativity of God.
May it be stated of us, as it was of the disciples of old, that it is apparent that we have been with Jesus. This and only this will make the changes that must occur if we are to reach this hurting world with the message of God's redemptive, transforming grace. We must be radical reflectors of His life through holy boldness, evangelism, and discipling the body of Christ.
I am not designed to drift - I am designed for DESTINY.
God has called me with a holy calling, according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to me in Christ Jesus before the world began.
Since I am in Christ I am in another reality and another life altogether.
