When God Allows Testing...
One STORY from Sunday of God moving... Driving back on Saturday night, he hit a deer and messed up his truck. "Why did God allow that?" He hadn't been to church in years, but something prompted him to get up Sunday and follow up with someone he met a month ago at a public event that he was providing sound. The church sound man had asked the professional for any advice, so he decided today to call and drive several towns over for church to help. He did help... and found some answers to his question too. PTL... Praise The LORD! Let us continue on mission for God's glory!
When GOD allows testing, tether to Jesus. Tether is an electronic term where you link one device to another in order to share it's connection.
Our natural reaction is try harder (by my might) and / or leverage our influence over others (by my power) to try to get the situation under control.
Zechariah 4:6, "Not by might; not by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord of hosts!"
1. Recognize the Spiritual Battle ~ Ephesians 6:12-13 There is SO much more going on than what we see on the surface level.
2. Trust GOD to Deliver You ~ Luke 23:46 Jesus in suffering on the cross gave us the example to continue trusting that nothing will keep God the Father from accomplishing His plans and purposes.
3. Share God's Love with Others ~ Luke 22:31 / John 21 ~ Jesus restored Peter for the purpose of setting him on mission to share God's love with everyone he came in contact.
