Tuesday, September 28th, 2010 I am heading off for the long journey from St. Louis to Shiprock, New Mexico to minister to the Navajo Indians at the 99th annual Shiprock Northern Navajo Nation Fair. There will be at least 120,000 Navajos at the parade on Saturday, October 2nd. I will be taking 6 other people with me; 5 students from the St. Louis Dream Center Ministry Academy and one man from the Genesis program. We will also be meeting a couple from Joel Osteen’s church in Lakewood, Texas down in Shiprock. We will be loaded with Gospel material to pass out. We will have around 15,000 Gospel tracts, 2000 Jesus stickers, over 1000 salvation bracelets, Navajo Bibles and other material to pass out. Pray that the material will get into the right hands and that it will bear much fruit and that we will have many divine appointments.
The scripture I feel like God has given me for this outreach is Joshua 1:3, “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you…” I believe that we as the body of Christ need to start claiming this scripture for our neighborhoods, schools, cities, workplaces and wherever we go, claiming that people are going to be saved and that revival is going to take place wherever our foot shall tread. Joshua 1:3 was not written just so that we could have a catchy little song but God wants us to win our neighborhoods and the nations to Jesus by believing this scripture. Joshua 1:5 says, “There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” In other words if God is on our side then no man or devil can stop us from winning the Navajos or anybody that we reach out to from being saved and transformed. If we rely on the Holy Spirit we cannot fail! Our job is to believe and to go out and do what it says in Joshua 1:6, “Be strong and of a good courage”. The New Testament says that if God is for us then who can be against us.
I believe the only thing that can really stop us is fear and that is why God repeats not to fear in Joshua 1:9, “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Don’t let fear of rejection or man or of anything stop you from going out and winning your cities to Jesus. It’s high time for us to go out and see our cities and nations delivered from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light because Jesus is coming back soon.
