It is beyond my understanding how great God truly is. I have seen many things since my release from prison happen that I am in complete awe. It is the truth friends, the power that God has is infinite, above, and beyond all of us. I am so thankful for all of the blessings that he has bestowed upon us.
A young man asked me one day what it meant to live in the light. I was about to explain it to him and then he suddenly had to exit our conversation. I came home and prayed about it and these are the words the Lord gave to share. I hope he reads this posting and I pray that these words bring understanding to his heart.
1 Corinthians 4:1-7-And so, since God in his mercy has given us this wonderful ministry, we never give up. We reject all shameful and underhanded methods. We do not try to trick anyone, and we do not distort the word of God. We tell the truth before God, and all who are honest know that.
If the good news we preach is veiled from anyone, it is a sign that they are perishing. Satan, the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe, so they are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News that is shining upon them. They don’t understand the message we preach about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
We don’t go around preaching about ourselves; we preach Christ Jesus, the Lord. All we say about ourselves is that we are your servants because of what Jesus has done for us. For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness, “ has made us understand that this light is the brightness of the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.
But this precious treasure-this light and power that now shine within us-is held in perishable containers, that is, in our weak bodies. So everyone can see that our glorious power is from God and is not our own.
This is the truth my friends, John 8:32-And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:36-If the Son sets you free, you will indeed be free. I know this from the bottom of my heart, I have no doubt and that is why I give God all glory. I know without him my life would not be what it is today. I thank you Lord.
I would like to thank you all for the prayers concerning Maggie, things are really beginning to look up for her. A couple dear friends of mine are going to open a bakery, this is their new journey. God has placed it upon their heart to do this. Not only have I earnestly prayed for this matter, but I would like to ask all of you to pray for them as well. Right now they are in need of the location. Pray that the Lord will provide the location, I have no doubt that he will, and pray that it be revealed to them.
That is all I have for today. I hope to see you at the SPIRIT Ministries bake sale tomorrow morning at Wal Mart, starting at 9:00am. God bless you all and have a great day.
