The Lord has called you as a power team. Together you are a beautiful balance of spirit and truth, wisdom and revelation, administration and freedom, peace and strength. He has gifted you both with eyes to see and the heart to pursue. You are forerunners and pioneers, builders and establishers. You are a strong oak that has been planted by His River. He has given you deep roots of righteousness with high standards of excellence. Your branches are a shelter for others to take refuge and find safety and nourishment. The Lord has called you to “Mother and Father” mothers and fathers. He has called you to impart strong values and the importance of the family unit. He has given you seeds of faith to spread His love everywhere you go. He has put His word on your tongue and His passion in your soul to pursue His kingdom and rebuild the ancient ruins.
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me Because the Lord has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To grant those who mourn in Zion, Giving them a garland instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins, They will raise up the former devastations; And they will repair the ruined cities, The desolations of many generations.”
“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; and this is smaller than all other seeds, but when it is full grown, it is larger than the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.””
