Quickend for Spiritual Labor

Alarmed by all that is seen and heard, many stand in wonder.
As clouds of darkness hover over the land, wickedness reigns.
Shaking off slumber that once gripped, many rise in wonder.
Called by His Spirit to wipe the slumber from their eyes, many listen.
Reminded that the harvest is ripe, they look to Him above to fill.

Quickened by His Spirit, they present themselves as His laborers.
Desiring to be vessels unto honor, they embrace His conviction.
As repentance fills minds and hearts, they turn to Him in humility.
With repentance, a quickening comes to break up the fallow ground.
The cross before them, embraced fully, they lose themselves in Him.

As growth materializes, a strong sense of urgency stirs to action.
Losing themselves in Him, spiritual fruit appears, drawing others.
Looking out over the harvest fields, they discover places to sow.
With hearts of faith and expectation, they sow seeds everywhere.
Quickened by His Spirit, no longer self-absorbed, they sow diligently.

As the Father seeks for those responding, He finds and rewards.
Adding further dimensions of grace, He equips for a greater harvest.
As His righteousness takes hold, He prepares His fields for gleaning. 
His vessels of honor, quickened by His Spirit, He sends rain.
As His rain fills the land, His harvest comes to full maturity in Him.

Fully immersed in His Spirit, His laborers go forth mightily, reaping.
Quickened by His Spirit, His gifts in full manifestation, they labor.
Rising in the full light of the gospel, many are compelled to come in.
As clouds of darkness dissipate, His Church stands as a strong tower.
Will you be one who responds by breaking up your fallow ground?

Ken Birks has written a masterpiece of superb continuity. The majestic flow from theme to theme contains powerful prophetic revelation, as God calls His end-time warriors to arise. I was also amazed by the poems that followed each devotional – the words were Davidic and musical – they flowed like a delightful stream with heavenly impartations. – Edward Becker, Senior Pastor, Naches Valley Community Church, Yakima, WA
