The Lord of the Harvest

RE Verse reading–Acts 13:1-52 (day one)  “While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ ” (vs2)  It may be the most important recovery of all.  Confidence in the competence of Christ.  An active trust that the Lord knows His own business and will effectively involve us as we seek Him.  The Antioch church had such confidence.  Some scholars believe that the Spirit had previously spoken to Barnabas and Saul re. this missionary assignment.  The church, however, required a deeper certainty that came as the leaders sought the Lord together/heard His voice together in an attitude of praise and surrender.  Jesus taught us the same procedure.  “Pray to the LORD OF THE HARVEST, to send out workers”  (Matthew 9:38)  What new confidence we would have!  What new effectiveness!  The Savior knows how/when/where to employ us in His Kingdom work!  Let us seek Him.
