It has been quite some time since I have written a post my friends. I have been real busy lately with work and with my ministry. The good Lord continues to put me in awe as he does great and mighty things in my life. I must say that I am embracing what he is doing with all my heart, soul, and strength.
Recently I have been speaking at many different places. The doors have been opening up left and right which is a good thing. I give all the glory to God:) I am truly a Romans 8:28 kind of guy. It says; And God causes all things to work together for the good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. He gives me all the strength I need in my weaknesses.
I must say I have been rather busy lately, more than usual. Anyway, just when I feel like I am physically and mentally exhausted the Lord intervenes. Today was one of those days. I gave the message on faith last night at an evening service. I was truly blessed and had great feed-back. I opened up with the song “Worthy”, and applied it to the message. What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen, it is the evidence of things not yet seen. Hebrews 11:1. NLT.
Today, mid afternoon I began to feel a little tired. After the service last night I went to dinner with four friends so I didn’t get home until after 11:00 p.m. While I was sitting in the office I began to pray, I said Lord I sure could use some inspiration, some encouragement, and some energy if you would please. Our God is truly amazing because only seconds after I breathed these words to the One True Living God my phone went off.
I picked it up and pushed the button, it was a text message from one of the ladies I went to dinner with the night before. It was from the book of Isaiah. It is actually one of my favorite Scriptures in the word of God. It was Isaiah 40: 30-31 which says; Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Hallelujah!
God answers prayer in His own perfect time, and I can tell you that was the perfect time because I truly needed that:) I was tired and now I’m sitt
ing here hours later sharing my experience with you. What a wonderful God we serve. So I encourage you, when you feel like you need a breath of fresh air, open your Bible to Isaiah 40: 30-31. You will not be disappointed by any means, you will experience the dunamis power of the Holy Spirit bring life to you spirit and energize you that you may move forward. God bless you exceedingly, abundantly my friends:)
