"THE FIELDS ARE WHITE AND READY TO HARVEST"
The Time is Now...
My former pastor told a story about two men that shifted my perspective about life forever. He said, "There were two men behind prison walls, the one saw the mud, the other saw the stars."
Each of us have felt tremendous uncertainty during this pandemic. It is so easy to look down and see all of the problems and complain. But, God wants us to lift up our eyes and see the 'stars' or potential that lies before us.
I once heard a story about a shoe salesman who went to a country and became very discouraged because the natives didn't wear shoes. After returning to America he relayed his plight to another shoe salesman who decided to go to the same country and sell shoes to the natives.
Amazingly, his result were completely opposite. He sold out of shoes within a very short period of time. Why, you might ask? Because his perspective was different. He lifted his eyes up and didn't see the problem, he saw the possibility.
This is the greatest time to be alive! We must look up and see all the promises of God and seize this moment for the kingdom of God.
I am so excited to be preparing for a transition from pastoring to full time evangelism. I see the fields that are ready to harvest. The GREATEST HARVEST of souls are about to come into the kingdom of God.
The time is now for each of us to lift up our eyes and see the souls of those who do not know Jesus Christ.
May God bless you,
Evangelist Abraham Lankford
