“The Lord now chose seventy-two other disciples and sent them ahead in pairs to all the towns and places he planned to visit.”
Luke 10:1 (NLT)
In this verse, we see that Jesus sent His disciples to places He planned to go. They were to prepare the people and make provisions for Jesus’ visit. In a similar way, God has strategically placed us precisely where we need to be in order to prepare the people and the area for His visit. As His disciples, it is our job to sow seeds in the lives of those God places along our path. Only then can the Holy Spirit water and grow these seeds unto a bountiful harvest.
Today, pray that the Holy Spirit will begin to work in the hearts of the lost He has placed in our lives. Pray that God will open our eyes to the opportunities He has set before us, and ask that His Spirit work within us to effectively share the gospel with love and boldness.
