When great men and women of God fall.
“Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted” Galatians 6:1, ESV.
One morning the Lord gave me a vision of a large concrete slab that had fallen to the ground. I went and lifted up the heavy object, bringing it back to its’ feet, while tears poured down my face. The concrete slab was fallen leaders. Through their pride, they fell, but through the love of their brothers and sisters in Christ, they will stand again. Our Father loves His children, and even when we fall, He knows how to restore us back to our original place in Him.
In this time, we’re seeing great men and women of God fall down like concrete slabs onto the earth. It’s creating a loud noise and it is shaking the faith of some. But I hear the word of the Lord saying, “Don’t you point your finger. Run to their side and help them stand. Restore them in love because it could be you.” Let your relationship with the Lord become so established and rooted and grounded that no matter what happens with a Christian leader, it won’t shake your faith. Follow Jesus and you will continue to grow and do the works He created you to do. Keep your mind stayed on Him, He will keep you in His perfect peace.
Prayer: Father, I pray for Christian leaders who have fallen. I pray that you will cover them under the precious blood of Jesus. Help them to receive your love and forgiveness. Help them to resist every lie of the enemy and receive the truth of your Word. Remind them of who they are in Christ. And help me, Father, not to judge, condemn, or attack a leader. Help me continue to pray for them from my heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
