Unless You’re Moved...

Unless you’re moved
You can’t be used.
Moses was moved
and was used;
Jesus was moved
was used;
Esther was moved
and was used;
Paul was moved
and was used;
Nehemiah was moved
and was used.

Unless you’re moved
You can’t be used.
Weep for others;
Reach for others;
Come out of your cocoon
And you will begin to bloom.
Be like Knox:
'Give me Scotland or I die.’
Be like Esther:
‘If I perish, I perish.’
Be like Paul:
‘This one thing I do
Forgetting what is behind,
… I press for the mark.’

Jesus was moved
With compassion.
Nehemiah was moved
With a sense of purpose.
Peter was moved
With a sense of destiny.
Isaiah said: ‘Here I am send me.’

Unless you’re moved
You can’t be used!



Jesus was Moved
And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things Mark6:34
And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick. Matt14:14
But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Matt9:36
Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!” Esther4:16

Paul was Moved
Paul’s Post-Conversion Life ] “Therefore, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision, Acts26:19

Pressing Toward the Goal

12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Phil3:12-14



Nehemiah was Moved

The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates are burned with fire.”

4 So it was, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.
5 And I said: “I pray, LORD God of heaven, O great and awesome God, You who keep Your covenant and mercy with those who love You[b] and observe Your[c] commandments, 6 please let Your ear be attentive and Your eyes open, that You may hear the prayer of Your servant which I pray before You now, day and night, for the children of Israel Your servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel which we have sinned against You. Both my father’s house and I have sinned. Neh1:3-6

Issiah was moved
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “ Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” Isa6:8

God is waiting for You! to be moved
So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. Ezek 22:30
