The Pathway to Power

By Francis Frangipane

A new awakening is coming to the church. It will be birthed by prayer and sheltered by humility, but its power will emerge through compassion.  The strength of this fresh move is the deep yearning of the Lord Himself. Yes, even in the midst of hellish conditions on earth He has promised, "I WILL HAVE MERCY ON WHOM I HAVE MERCY, AND I WILL HAVE COMPASSION ON WHOM I HAVE COMPASSION" (Rom. 9:15).

Common people, flooded and compelled by the burning compassions of God, shall be used mightily in the coming years: they shall transform multitudes. Christ's compassions shall be especially revealed where human suffering is unrelenting.  Let us remember, the Lord is not aloof from the human condition; mankind's suffering exists in the thought-life of God.  The book of   Judges reveals an amazing quality about the relationship of God's heart to human sorrow.  Scripture says, "He could bear the misery of Israel no longer" (Judges 10:16).  As a result, He rescued His people from their enemies.
