Work and Faith Serving God’s Purposes

City Transformation: City of Refuge

  • Pray that the believers in our city would join together their work life and their faith life, and that they would see how their service in the marketplace supports God’s purposes for our city.

Matthew 5:14
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”

Isaiah 26:1
We have a strong city; God makes salvation its walls and ramparts.

Isaiah 62:12
“And they will call them, ‘The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord’;
And you will be called, ‘Sought out, a city not forsaken.’”

Prophetic Words — November 16-17, 2012
“I am after the heartland of America, the heart and soul of this country, to revive the commitment to family, community, compassion and care for one another. I will focus on the heartland because those places still have a remnant that I can work with. And a healthy heartland will bring life to the extremities of the nation. As the coasts crumble, the people there will look to the heartland for help, for wisdom, for refuge from the chaos unleashed, particularly along the eastern seaboard.”

I saw a doorway open in the side of the mountain. It was large and opened to a huge cave within the mountain. I asked the Lord, what is this? He said, “This is the treasury. This is the armory.” I could see the sparkle of the gems within the cave as God said, “I am drawing out of the cave the supply and the weapons you need to accomplish my purposes for your day.”
