“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” What an encouraging verse given to us by David, the sweet Psalmist of Israel. Of course, we know the Lord is the one who inspired David to pen his psalms, and so it is really God Himself who admonishes us to wait upon Him!
I hope that all of us have learned or relearned the lesson of waiting upon God during this Covid-19 pandemic. Many churches are just now beginning to assemble once again, while some are still waiting. Whatever the case may be, God’s timetable is always best and He is accomplishing His eternal purposes, whether we understand those purposes or not. Most of the time we don’t understand, but it is still our job to trust Him! Our two meetings in May were postponed, but we still got away from Illinois to visit with family in Tennessee for a few weeks – what a refreshing time! I was also able to preach two Sunday morning services at the church our family attends. The Lord blessed with such a wonderful spirit in each of the services.
I am eagerly anticipating preaching at a church camp in Iowa starting on June 15, and my two oldest kids are eagerly anticipating being campers! Would you pray that God would both save lost kids and revive the believers as well?
We are still praying that God would open more doors for later this year. Our world has always needed Jesus, but it just seems more evident right now with all the current events. Keep being faithful where you are and shining the light of Christ to all those around you!
