“After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. 2 Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest… ” [Luke 10]
Upon reading the Scriptures in 1 Corinthians 12 once again, the wonderful Daily Devotional at www.intouch.org, and praying for spiritual fitness for the out-of-this-world ’body of Christ’ as a whole, I saw an elaborate gift in how the Lord blessed us, equipped us, and sent us out, by twos…
He gave us two eyes that we would seek to FOCUS on Him, WITNESS His greatness, and have FAITH for the things unseen. He gave us two ears to LISTEN and HEAR Him… to & from any direction, and RESPOND from the heart He gave us. He gave us two lungs to BREATHE Him in and EXHALE Him out… in UNITY. He gave two arms that we could choose to EMBRACE Him, along with two legs and feet, that we may learn to WALK straight to and with Him. He gave us two hands, that when we raise them, join them, and work to HELP OTHERS with them, we HEAL, ADMINISTER, and DEMONSTRATE the great MIRACLES of GOD in us… giving all PRAISE, WORSHIP, & GLORY TO HIM. And when we fall, He gave us two knees that we may REST upon, without ceasing. He gave within both man and woman… two, that we may go forth and multiply; to SUSTAIN… life… He so graciously created.
And… even in the organs He called one, like the brain, the heart, a breastplate, our mouth, He gave two sides, that we may choose to operate harmoniously in PERFECT FAITH… to KNOW & DISCERN WISELY, LOVE everyBODY, PROTECT & SERVE JUSTLY, SPEAK, TEACH and PROFESS HIM RIGHT… to CHOOSE LIFE because we would so LOVE TO!
Thank You Lord for all the gifts that You have given… for You have truly supplied all our need. And what a sweet smelling aroma, to both sides of our nose.
“Lord, I pray to look at life from both sides now.”
