Too Good Not to Post Today…Really!

I have been praying about something for years and recently I acted on them.  I sent an email to a person in hopes of seeing my prayers being turned into reality. I laid everything on the line: my hopes, my dreams, my vulnerabilities, and so forth.

The net result of my email was zero. Nothing happened. The man never sent me a reply nor did he even acknowledge my email.

Now, this doesn’t bother me in the least because after almost thirty years of walking with the Lord, I have learned a few things about myself. The chief one being that not every idea of mine is from the Lord. Thus, I need to test them and see if they are from Him.

Okay, working with that particular man in the way I envisioned was not from the Lord. Thanks Jesus, I get it.

Then, Mark Pedder, a missionary to the Philippines, posted the above video on his Facebook account. I watched it and bingo! It grabbed my heart. I transcribed the three-minute video word for word and a powerful revelation arose within me. I am now praying and seeking the Lord on the rest of the details and the Lord’s timing.

Here’s the point I want to make: we never know exactly how the Lord is going to speak to us. We just need to seek Him and allow Him to be a BIG God…One that can even use a dancing guy to reveal His plans to us.

  1. Ah, but it *was* God’s plan for you to witness to this man (Matt 28:18-20). Remember that many people walked away from teaching by Jesus Himself (e.g., John 6:66). Yet we know that everything He said and did was according to the Father’s plan.

    Be encouraged, Brother. What you did was difficult but not outside of God’s will.
