these are His waters.
by Misty Dawn
244 years ago a man died.
today, his life is still remembered.
of him Ben Franklin wrote,
“from the crowded court house steps, streets filled with hearers, i had the curiosity to learn how far this man could be heard, and so by retiring backwards and down the street . . . his voice could be heard almost a mile away.”
a man whom twenty-five thousand plus would gather to hear.
i wonder to how many am i willing to speak truth . . .
how far my voice might reach?
or how deep . . .
and how true is the truth that i’m sharing?
what a burden.
and what a blessing.
“if you are going to walk with Jesus Christ, you are going to be opposed . .
in our days, to be a true Christian is really to become a scandal.” Whitefield
but these are His waters.
requiring a trust that’s without borders.
“beg of God to give you faith; and if the Lord give you that, you will by it receive Christ, with his righteousness, and his all . .
and none, none can tell, but those happy souls who have experienced it with what demonstration of the Spirit this conviction comes . .” Whitefield
a man declaring the whole world his “parish.”
“make disciples,” Jesus says.
and i’d say this man did just that.
God be praised.
