It begins to trace a hesitant course downward, gradually joining with other drops of water to become a steady stream. The stream gains speed and strength. Thousands of feet below and hundreds of miles later, what were once single drops have converged to become the mightiest river on earth: the Amazon. Flowing into the Atlantic Ocean at a rate of more than seven million cubic feet per second; the Amazon is more powerful than the next ten largest rivers in the world combined.” (David Platt, Radical Together)

My friends, let’s make it personal today. I need you to focus on the narrative as we allow ourselves to become transformed into that single drop of water, with the rays of the Son of God unleashing the power of His Holy Spirit upon us; as we become witnesses for God throughout our churches and throughout our communities, and our place of employment and “in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (KJV)

What is so awesome about the scenario is, you and I, are gradually joining with other drops of water to become a steady stream. And that is when it becomes a movement. My friends, God is unleashing His Spirit to all who are willing to take up our cross and become one of His disciples. And it is happening while we are sitting in front of our TV’s telling all who will listen, how much we are looking forward to Christ second coming.

When He will take us away from this crazy world. “But, on the contrary.” “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of amazon-riverheaven, but he [or she] who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.” Matt 7:21 (NASB) Now let’s look deep down inside of our heart and ask, are we doing the will of “our Father which art in heaven”?

Isn’t it ironic, three months from now as we begin to look over our life during the past quarter it suddenly will dawn on us that the god of this world has allow us to become so occupied with the things of this world that we no longer have any type of prayer life. And we no longer spend any more quality time in the presence of God just allowing Him to speak to us as a friend one on one.

It is not a complicated process. All that is required, each day we wake up, the first thing we do with passion Is cry out, “Lord not my will but thy will be done.” And please Create within me the desire to be that “single drop of water that begins to trace a hesitant course downward gradually joining with other drops of water to become a steady stream.”

Whose only desire is to do your will. Once again my friends, with such a desire comes with it great responsibilities for the Master as He leads us on this Journey. But one day soon the “Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord” 1 Thess. 4:16-17 (NKJV)
