Because You Will Go

Los Angeles, CA
Before another week passes by I want to touch base with you, my dear Readers. It’s that “time flying by” thing going on again. I guess that could be written up as the story of my life.

Tomorrow I will be flying to Los Angeles, California, on a Mission Trip where a team of five will be doing street evangelism and prayer walking in a couple areas of the city. God has given us a specific assignment just as He did last year when He called us to go to Washington, DC, for a similar purpose. On that trip, God showed up and showed out in ways we never imagined He would, even giving us visual cues for what He was going to accomplish in Washington.

We have been gathering each month since March to pray for the trip, for each other, and for
Meeting for Prayer
directions from God as to what our exact mission is. Several of us have questioned God about why He would call people from a small town in North Carolina to go to a huge city like LA, especially when there are already Christians there. Why not just call on them? The answer I received through prayer was, “Because you will go.”

Because I am available, He is using me. It doesn’t have anything to do with my skills, what I can add to the team, or whether I am prepared to meet strangers on the street with the message of God’s love for them. It’s simply because I will go. He’ll do the rest by preparing hearts in California for a divine appointment with an old lady from North Carolina. Just because I will go.

What about you? Are you available? Will you go where He sends you? Tell me how He is using you in the comment section below. I’d love to hear your stories.

Going out with joy today-

  1. Hi Cathy, I'm praising God that you are one of those who "will go." When we told God we "will go," the person who prayed with my husband and me said, "God doesn't call the equipped; He equips the ones He calls." I like that! God has equipped us to go to prison with the Bill Glass prison ministry, Behind the Walls, and lots of other amazing joyful times. My book, Take Someone with You to Heaven, tells about a lot of our adventures, which have continued since then. You can get an e-book for less than $2 on Amazon. I'm praying for your mission trip to LA to bear much fruit, now and forever and that you find many divine appointments as you go, leaving you wondering (as I always do) "How did God do that!!? Love, Carol
