Stirred, Not Shaken

God is stirring gifts in the body of Christ to bring about a mighty harvest. Read this!


An old-time house-painter once insisted that paint should be stirred and different cans “boxed” together to bring out the greatest consistency of color and uniformity of coverage.  In much the same way, Paul writes to Timothy to “stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.”

There is nothing He can’t do through you if you are willing to be used by Him! He is so amazing!!!
