The Laboring Spirit

“My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you…” Galatians 4:19

I was stirred last week by the thought of this verse.  It’s been provoking me in my times of prayer and my downtime throughout the day.  Paul was gripped by a desire to see the Galatian church come into the fullness of Christ and it produced a laboring spirit that moved him in prayer. I’ve been asking for this same thing in my prayer life and in the lives of the intercessors around me. Oh, that God would raise up a hundred men in this city with a laboring spirit to see the fullness of Christ birthed in the church!
