The Sound of Marching

Mark, the evangelist, leaves us the following account:

Now John answered Him, saying, “Teacher, we saw someone who does not follow us casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.” But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me. For he who is not against us is on our side. For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.” (Mk. 9:38–41)

As Christian women, we need to have unity with each other. We do not need to agree on everything, nor do we need to pull each other from one church or denomination to another. Jesus’ name is enough for us to respect and agree with each other. The body of Christ is made up of people from all nations and all denominations. He seeks those who are obedient to His Word and who conform themselves to His likeness. There is much work to be done and many souls to be saved. This goal should be enough to unite us.

We can bear much fruit when we pray together: “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” (Matt. 18:19–20). If every woman is faithful in her walk and prays for the things God shows her and what I listed in the beginning of this chapter, the results will be astounding in each home, church, and city. If each woman follows the expectations of the Lord’s army (as outlined in this chapter), the outcome will be revolutionary. If we could see through God’s eyes, it would look like the entire planet is covered in little light bulbs that are connected together in a golden net.

When we put our prayers on the altar, God will gather what we have prepared for Him. It will be His doing. Where we can’t, He can do the rest. It will be like with David:

Therefore David inquired of the LORD, and He said, “You shall not go up; circle around behind them, and come upon them in front of the mulberry trees. And it shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly. For then the LORD will go out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines.” And David did so, as the LORD commanded him; and he drove back the Philistines from Geba as far as Gezer. (2 Sam. 5:23–25)

Women Missionaries

Today whole world celebrating international Women’s Day. I hope this day will remind you once more the importance of a woman’s influence around us. If we walk with the Lord in His obedience, we are world changers. If we walk in the flesh we influence as well. May we never be ashamed of our conduct and choices. Here is a wonderful link of information about several strong Christian women who are not ashamed of their walk before Christ: http://womenmissionaries.blogspot.com/. You do not need to leave your home and your country to make great contribution to the world. Every woman is powerful in her own house, church, city and country. We will be surprised in heaven how much our obedience brought fruit to the Lord. No wonder David speaks of women as such: “The Lord gave the command: a great company of women brought the good news: “The kings of the armies flee – they flee!” She who stays at home divides the spoil.” (Psalm 68:11–12. HCSB)

Martha’s Sin

I believe Jesus’ rebuke towards Martha was justified. It is written that Martha was distracted with much serving. Mary, however, focused her attention towards the Guest Himself, and absorbed all the words and teaching of the Son of God. Jesus rebuked Martha in her busy ways, which kept her from the most important issues. Martha’s sin was in her busyness, an overabundance of serving at the moment. Exceeding in worldly care will unavoidably bring us to spiritual bankruptcy, which will lead to serious consequences. Isaiah 5:12–14 reveals that it will entrap a soul to the enemy, lead to spiritual thirst and hunger, and ultimately the destruction of a soul.

“The harp and the strings, The tambourine and flute, And wine are in their feasts; But they do not regard the work of the LORD, Nor consider the operation of His hands. Therefore my people have gone into captivity, Because they have no knowledge; Their honorable men are famished, And their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore Sheol has enlarged itself And opened its mouth beyond measure; Their glory and their multitude and their pomp, And he who is jubilant, shall descend into it.” (NKJV)

Let’s take an example from Mary and let’s put the care for our eternal souls and the souls of our children and loved ones as priority. Because it is exactly what will bring blessing: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things” (Matthew 5:33, 34a, NKJV). This way neither flesh nor spirit will have any harm.

Prayer: “Lord, help me to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, so I won’t lose the kingdom and have all these other things added to me as well.” Matthew 6:33
