It’s humbling to be prayed for by so many of you. I feel the prayers. I know this may be said quite often — what does it mean to feel prayer? Let me explain…
Even though separated from all of you by thousands of miles…literally the volume of planet earth (that’s a lot), there is a bond that connects us in very real and powerful ways. In the last 24 hours, I have experienced God leading me in my preparations for India. My first two messages have come together so beautifully — I’m pumped! I can’t wait to share them with those who will be listening. I know it is a “word from the Lord”. In the midst of my studies, God spoke clearly.
Let me give you the latest example. I awoke this morning at 3:30AM thinking about my teaching and preaching sessions. I finally got up and went to work again. Trying to think how I should “wrap up” message #2 at the Boro Baptist Conference, my wife Susan sends along some VERY encouraging words and a verse she is claiming for the people of India. At the very MOMENT I needed it. It comes from Exodus 15:
“Who else among the gods is like you, O LORD? Who is glorious in holiness like you–so awesome in splendor, performing such wonders? You raised up your hand, and the earth swallowed our enemies. With unfailing love you will lead this people whom you have ransomed. You will guide them in your strength to the place where your holiness dwells.”
It couldn’t be more perfect for the thrust of that message.
God is working here, there, and everywhere to accomplish is great and glorious purposes! What a privilege to be a part of what He intends to do here. And you’re a huge part of it too. God bless you, partners!!!
