Do you know of pastors who are out of ministry? It is not uncommon in big churches to find a few former ministry people. I believe God wants to reactivate some of those ministers, back to the calling on their life. Many of them still carry their ministry burden, but have moved out of ministry for one reason or another. Once out of the saddle they find it hard to get going again.
There are two allegories for this situation, which I will discuss in future postings. One is that of “Gates” and the other is that of “Wells”. I believe God has raised up men and women to be both gates and wells within His Kingdom. Just as Gates can be bricked in and closed, and just as wells can be plugged up, people with ministry calling can find themselves unable to do what they were once called to do.
It is a time of RESTORING MINISTRIES, releasing men and women of God to be Open Doors and Flowing Rivers of Life, instead of bricked up gates and stopped wells.
If you know someone who is away from their ministry calling please join with me in praying that God restore their ministry and put them back into effective Ministry for God’s glory.
