I am not going to call this temper depressed… or morbid… but it's bordering on each of these feelings. Within the last several months, God has planted in my heart a new message of hope as well as a deep burden to share it. This message is about freedom and spiritual god way is perfect abundance; about dwelling a life in full communion with Jesus; about breaking by our earthly limitations and making a powerful influence on the world around us. It is about you and me finally finding our place within God's magnificent kingdom on earth.
Thanks should be given to God in every circumstance of life; in adversity, as Job did; when not in so snug and agreeable a body of soul as to be wished for…even below the temptations of Satan…because the grace of God is enough to bear up under them, and deliver out of them. Sometimes I believe I take a look at it backwards - considering it is all about me speaking with God. But it's additionally a time for God to communicate with me. It doesn't need to be big and lofty, nor lengthy and pious.
When God known as us to begin the church I now pastor, we had no thought how He would use us. However not a week has gone without somebody giving his or her life to Jesus. Individuals are finding Him and then rapidly maturing into devoted disciples, growing of their data of God. I'm convinced that God will reveal Himself even more powerfully — not simply in salvations but also in outreach, in serving to the poor, in impacting the town.
