Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here I am – send me”. – Isaiah 6:8

We recently had a Spiritual Thuma Mina Campaign organised by CPA South Africa, the Hopetown Church Council and the Thembelihle Municipality, which involved a four-day revival crusade ministered by Professor Allen under the theme “Thuma Mina” (Send Me), of which I am expressing my view.

I believe for every problem there is a solution and for every worry God will raise a warrior.

From the Old Testament, right through to the New Testament, God has been raising up warriors for every worry His people had.

When Farao took the Israelites into captivity, God raised up Moses as His warrior; when the Philistines had the Israelites in their hands for almost 40 years, God raised up Samson.

When the people of Ammon made war against Israel, God raised up Jephthah; when there was wickedness in the temple of the Lord, God raised up Samuel.

When God needed a womb, He raised Mary; when He needed a voice in the wilderness, He raised John.

This proves that God has always raised up someone to fight the worry His people have.

Now South Africa and even Africa is in need of warriors for the worry of its people and God wants to raise His people as warriors. Therefore, He is asking us today: “Can I send you?”

We all have different gifts, but they should work together for the benefit of God’s Kingdom.

Yes, maybe like Moses you are looking at your weakness or your shortcomings, but if God was able to raise up the most notorious killer like Apostle Paul, or the adulterer David, then He is able to raise up someone like you and me.

Even Isaiah was not perfect, that is why the seraphim had to take the coal and touch Isaiah’s mouth with it to cleanse him.

If God did it for Isaiah, He will surely do it for you. All He needs is for us to avail ourselves for His work.

Just come as you are, Jesus will fix you.

South Africa needs you, the Body of Christ needs you, let us avail ourselves and stand in the gap to make our country a better place and also jointly build the Kingdom of God by winning souls.

Apostle Paul goes further and instructs us to offer our bodies as living sacrifices, and to give our bodies, skills and time to God and help build His Kingdom.

Have a blessed day and allow God to use you in whatever way He sees fit.

Avail yourself for His Kingdom and you shall be established.
