During intercession time, I saw a beautiful field with green grass and flowers. A Christian in flowing clothes was frolicking in it, enjoying the beauty, fragrance, and warmth.
However, rising up at the edges of the beautiful field were dark, brown, hard, lifeless cliffs. Many people were bound or stuck in the cliffs and they were hurting. They were crying out for help.
We need to leave the fragrant fields and go to the hard places and minister to the hurting people who are there. We need to leave our beautiful churches and go to the ugly places where needy people are and give them the love of God.
