Melissa G.) “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2) That’s a Change-Agent’s life right there. We PROVE the good, acceptable and perfect will of God. How? By changing our thought habits. We meditate on God’s will, His original intent for this earth. We stop fixating on the enemy’s war around us by realizing his war has intensified because he is feeling the pressure of this never-ending Kingdom in Luke 1. We turn our thoughts toward that powerful fact. We engage in power, love, and a sound mind by dumping fear-thoughts that have wreaked havoc (2 Timothy 1:7). This is all possible in our lifetime!
Isa.17:5 paints a picture of reapers gathering corn and their arms gathering the ears and gleaning ears of grain. The corn, the harvest (souls, Father God’s purposes in the earth) has not stopped growing nor shall it stop growing. That means that there must be reapers and arms to gather it in. The grain grows until the time of harvest and there are reapers who are anticipating and prepared to gather it in. The grain does not harvest itself. There must be reapers, gatherers who are willing to go out into the fields and gather it in lest it be wasted. Jesus told His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few” (Matt.9:37). There is no question as to whether or not there is a harvest. Jesus is the Lord of the harvest, so can you imagine the vastness of the harvest to be gathered in? It is Father’s good, acceptable and perfect will for His people to “gather a fruitful harvest” Ps.107:37, NASB — “And sow fields and plant vineyards, And gather a fruitful harvest.”
