Then I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions.” (Joel 2:28 NLT)
According to the Associated Press, the Selective Service System mistakenly sent notices to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born between 1893 and 1897, ordering them to register for the nation’s military draft and warning that failure to do so is “punishable by a fine and imprisonment.” Considering that the youngest of these would be 117, nobody’s sure if even one of them is still alive!
The beauty of the “army” of God is that He uses all people to touch the lives of others, from single digit to triple digits ages alike! From places of influence to spiritual giftings, we are all capable of making eternal differences if we meet two criteria, that we are holy and are willing. If so, then the Draft Board of Heaven will make the call at any given moment, releasing us to dream a dream, have a vision, or share a word that changes lives!
As you start your weekend, start it with Heaven in mind! Watching the news headlines should instill in us all the need to be busy for the Kingdom. Live ready, for you never know when your assistance will be needed! Then join the ranks on Sunday, to be briefed by your commanders and charged by The General to storm life’s beachfronts and touch needy lives, regardless of your age! You are loved and needed today!
