John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.-

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

Some are called to be more than followers, they are called to be leaders.

These are singled out by the enemy to discredit their calling. He begins by causing a feeling that they lack the necessary intellect and wisdom, and as a result, they begin to think that they are a “round peg in a square church.”

Any great leader is very often alone, for the masses see with the eyes of the masses, not with the singular eye of a leader. This loneliness is not a burden, but a gift. Loneliness is not punishment. It is the price that must be paid for being near the top.

Leaders are taught by the Holy Spirit. Some hear better than others, but all hear the same words from the same Spirit. If others repeat what you have said, but do not give you the credit, do not be displeased, for the credit for those words should go to our Heavenly Father. Your joy should be that they remember the words

Jesus was a leader, teaching disciples, who in turn taught the masses. It is not important who does the leading, or the teaching. It is important that Jesus and Him alone, receive the glory. A leader does not necessarily have a great following, for a leader is a teacher of other disciples, who in turn have a great following.

Jesus’ life was not all joy to Him, but His compassion and solitude produced joy to the hearts of all those whom He touched.

Loneliness understands loneliness, and puts oil on the wounds. It binds up the troubled soul with words of consolation and love. Loneliness is one of the stars in the crown of those who have been set apart, for it shines the way for the forgotten, the lost, the down-hearted. In the hands of the Master, loneliness is a primary building block.

To you who are lonely, you are truly loved by many. You are not self sufficient, you are Saviour sufficient. His love is all you truly need. His love is all you have to give, and that is one of the greatest gifts of all.
