November 28, 2004

As we enter into Rally Ranch, it is very important that we pull together and fill ourselves with all the truth of God. Because next week will be Pitfall Canyon. This is where Satan is going to try and pull the bottom from under us. Please pray hard, put on the whole armour of God (Ephesians 6:11-18). We have come too far to give up now!

This week God reminds us that even in the midst of our weakness, He is strong. It is His strength that we must rely upon and not our own. As we face the obstacles that block our paths in our day to day lives, He gently reminds us that with Him all things are possible (Mark 10:27)! There is nothing God can’t handle! So many times God has asked us to tell the world of His love for them. And so many times we reply with the words, “I can’t” or “I’m just not good at talking to people” or any number of other excuses that reveal our faithlessness. God beseeches us to remember that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us! (Philippians 4:13) He will ask us to do things that are beyond our ability, but He will never ask us to do anything that is beyond HIS ability! He will never ask us to go, without going with us. He will never ask us to speak without giving us the words. It is His strength we must depend on and not our own. With this in mind, lets leave behind our excuses and go forward in obedience and faith! Let’s go out this week and tell the world of His love and grace! Their lives depend on it!

Just A Reminder…

“If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be [ye] warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what [doth it] profit?” James 2:15-16

            As Christians, we should always try to share God’s love with everyone we meet. Christ said that the way everyone would know that we belong to him is if we love one another (John 13:35). One way to show our love for one another is to share the things that God has given us with those who are in need. In an attempt to show others this love that Jesus spoke of, our ladies group has chosen 2 families and our youth group has chosen 2 elderly couples to help this holiday season. We are trying to raise at least $1,000.00 to help meet the needs of a total of 14 people. When you pray, please ask God what he would like for you to share.

 Our Father Is Faithful to Deliver

Called by God to full-time Christian service, the man resigned a lucrative job, left a specialized career of 20 years, and took his family over 2,000 miles to a strange city to enter seminary.

He was able to obtain only part-time employment in his profession and his annual salary was barely one-third of what he had earned before God called him.

The costs of being in seminary and of keeping his two children in Christian elementary school became heavier and heavier. When things got too tight he stayed out a semester, but his children went to school. Finally, his wife, who had not worked since the first child was born, took a full-time job.

All the while the man's prayer was to share with God his heart's desire that he be given work in Christian service that would make ends meet while he went to school and served his Lord Jesus Christ.

Though he enjoyed many opportunities to preach and to minister without pay, full-time Christian work eluded him. He began to seek full-time employment at secular jobs, but he knew in his heart if he landed one that probably would be the end of seminary.

One day a series of unpredictable circumstances arose whereby in less than two weeks, without any effort on his part, the man was in a full-time job utilizing his specific talents, in full-time Christian service, and with an employer that insisted that he continue in seminary.

God faithfully prepares hearts in times of trial and temptation. And when His time is right, He delivers.

 

 
ROMANS 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
