My People Have Been Hit By A Wild Pitch! – A Word by Bill Yount

My People Have Been Hit By A Wild Pitch!

Here comes the pitch!… It turns wild as it comes in like a deranged missile at the batter. Unable to back away fast enough, the ball drills him in the back. All eyes in the stadium including mine are immediately riveted on the pitcher, questioning his intentions.

What He Doesn’t Do Makes Him A Star

As the batter shakes off the pain, there’s something he doesn’t do that makes him a star in the game…He never once looked back at the pitcher who wounded him! Instead he proudly trots down to first base. Silently his character spoke so loud that it filled the stadium with reverence….”Thank you Mr. Pitcher, you did not strike me out, I still made it to first base!” At that moment I felt the Holy Spirit come into that stadium and speak to me. He said, “Bill, how   many of My people have been hit by a wild pitch and they cannot take their eyes off the pitcher who hurt them and they never get on base because of the hurt?” I sense many in the Body of Christ– because of “hits and hurts” cannot discern who is winning or losing. And they don’t know what inning we are in.

There’s Good News In All Of This

I believe many have been up to bat spiritually and have been hit by some wild pitches. Many can’t take their eyes off of the one who has hurt or wounded them. I believe so many have gotten hit by wild pitches in the body of Christ that we have all the bases loaded. The good news is – we are still up at bat! The bad news is – many are afraid of the batter’s box from being hit in the past.

Get Back In The Batter’s Box

But God is saying, “Pick up the “Bat of Prayer” and get back in   the batter’s box one more time. Pray for those who have hit you  with a wild pitch.” “Pray for those who keep striking you out. Pray for those who throw so many “wild pitches” at you that you have to end up taking a walk! There is more than one way to gt on base. You can hit the ball. You can get a walk. Or you can get hit! Getting hit still gets you on base. I believe God is still in in our bat and I feel a ‘Home-Run Anointing” coming over us as the body of Christ is coming together as an unbeatable team. I see us hitting the ball so hard that it will go over every wall, hittin the nations, smashing the 10-40 Window and every window to pieces! I see this ball going, going, like a ball inside a pinball machine. Anything it hits only knocks it further on hitting strategic land-marks of the enemy across the face of the earth. Every time it hits something, something hits it again and it keeps traveling.

The Spiritual World Series

I believe what I’m seeing is the last day “Spiritual World Series” coming upon the earth. The world is about to witness a “Grand Slam” from a team the thought would never win and YOU are next

up to bat. Step Inside The Batter’s Box Now! I’m picking up my bat…

Wisdom From The Dugout…

* When it came to God’s best for my life, I had to wait longer than I wanted to. I had to learn to outwait the devil’s best offer first. It’s important for us to wait for that right pitch and then don’t let it pass by. The best hitters in baseball learn to wait it out for that right one.

* A prophet once spoke over me, “Son, if you keep swinging you are bound to hit something. Don’t be afraid to swing!”
