Is there anybody out there who would not want to be God’s spokesman?
You do know, though, that in order to be His spokesman you must first trust God to give you His words, and, secondly, you are to influence people and not let people influence you. That is a tall order for anyone, for how easily we are influenced by what people think and say about us. Yes, people may even fight against you and try to convince you that you are wrong. They may come at you, but God will make you like a wall of bronze, for He has called you to be His spokesman to the nations around you.
During these days of compromise, fear and despair, God has called us to be strong towers of light shining brightly over all the people who are about to drown in an ocean of sadness and distress.
Therefore, God has called us to be encouragers to the person on the street, in the grocery store, at work, or wherever we find ourselves.
May we be like the old prophet Jeremiah whose eyes were filled with tears day and night for the people he was call to be a spokesman to, and from whom he suffered many a blow. The Lord said to him: “I will make you strong in these trying times to accomplish My good. I will make it so your enemies ask you to pray for them in times of disaster and suffering.” Jeremiah 15:11 (The Voice)
Being a spokesman to the world will cause you to become like a well of water (depicted on the left) that is overflowing. You will refresh many people who have been dried up and are thirsty for more of God. So, be faithful to what He has called you to be and you will overflow with His presence to become His spokesman in these perilous times.
I hear Jesus say: “The more time you spend with Me, the more I will reveal Myself to you, for you are My friend. I will give you My secrets of how to stay firm in Me and not compromise. Let your one aim of life be to follow hard after and become more like Me. I will then fill your mouth with My words that are health and food for the hungry of heart.”

Drawn by God
This devotional book has 52 short chapters and 176 pages. Each chapter starts with a question, has a biblical background scripture that is appropriate for the title of the chapter and then discusses the answer to that query through the eyes of the author’s vision of God. The chapter ends with a prophetic word from Jesus’ heart saying “I hear Jesus say…” Every chapter ends with a drawing by the author or an inspired artist who knows Jesus intimately.
The book will make you hungry to know more of Who God is and answers questions like, “Does He really care about the small stuff in my life? How can I give Him first place when I feel like I am losing it and I feel He does not love me anymore? Do we need conflict in our life? What about generational blessings? How far will He go with me? What about impossible situations? How do I ever attain to living a life that is bathed in God’s rest?”
The book also shares personal examples of how the author faced tremendous difficulties in her own life. How in her youth during the war in Holland they were hiding Jews right under the nose of the Nazis who occupied a castle next door. The pain she experienced in her broken youth when she felt like no-one even realized she was around. How God became her Father and her Mother when she herself was just a young mother, longing to be free from much bondage.
The book is based on spontaneous prophetic art and how God wants to speak to each one of us not only through His precious word, but through anything that comes our way
Spontaneous Prophetic art is practiced in some churches where the artist steps forward as the worship starts and asks God for a spontaneous picture for the congregation. After the worship, the artist explains the meaning of the picture and shares what she or he senses God wants to say to the people at that point in time.
Most of us have heard the maxim, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” We may try a hundred word-related ways to comprehend a truth, but somehow, pictures engrave the heart. When the picture matches the words well, the reader is more deeply impacted.
Each devotional highlights an aspect of life – a challenge, a question, an irritation, a potential decision – and offers biblical truths in a practical, encouraging voice. See sight panel how to obtain this reviving book. Orders outside the USA pleas pay an extra $5 for shipping by air.
