The following post was discovered on a blog that I frequent and was written by a Pentecostal pastor. Great thought…
This picture inspired this little thought. The picture was posted on Facebook [by a friend]. Said it was a place he went to get out from everything.
We have heard it said, “Your making a mountain out of a mole hill.”
Let me just say… I am looking past my mole hill and looking toward a mountain.
The thing that is in front of me, close to me, I see the dirty details, however the further my vision beyond the greater appreciation I have not only for what is ahead of me but also puts everything else into perspective.
I am reminded of the scripture, “Looking unto Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despised the shame and is now set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Too many people buy burial plots on the Mole Hill. Too Many people march around mole hills. Too Many people get lost in the details of the mole hill.
MY simple words to one and all. Sometimes you need to get up from off the ground. Lift up your eyes and look beyond…. look … look … look…
Another service has come and gone, and while there is no question that God was in the house, we certainly began to feel the resistance of the adversary this weekend. Of course, as we’ve said all along… we’ll never have revival without resistance…
However, the reason for the resistance was clear as Bro. Channell took the pulpit and preached the Readers Digest Condensed version of his message. The king of Egypt hates God’s people and he would like nothing better than to see us out of his country… but He can’t just leave us alone and let us go in peace because we are not leaving empty-handed! We are taking his stuff and his subjects with us as we are leaving!!! And in spite of the opposition… we still intend to be the instrument that saves as many Egyptians as we can!!!
We were blessed with wonderful services again on this Lord’s Day. In the morning, Bro. Channell preached to us a message of encouragement entitled, “Whatever Happened to the Dream?”. He encouraged us to not let the dream die, don’t even put it off by stashing it in a pit, hoping to come back later… instead, take the dream and put it to work TODAY!
Tonight, Bro. Channell took us back many years with his songs “He’s God” and “This Train is Bound for Glory”. I must say, it’s been many years since I’ve heard either of those sung in church! God surely came by! He preached to us a challenging message, “Going Wild in the Wilderness”. What are we going to do when we are going through dry places? Let circumstances dictate our response, or will be a voice that cries out (goes wild) in the wilderness, making a highway for God to work on. If we choose right, there is a promise… the glory of God will appear! Many dancing and ‘going wild in the wilderness’ during the altar service!
We are already counting down to Monday Night and our next episode of Revival. God has been so faithful. We have no complaint with Him!
We were honored by His presence, as well as the presence of several other guests this evening. The Evangelist preached a stirring message entitled “It Just Takes a Moment” and the church responded. Two of our guests were in the altar and Jesus definitely touched both of them. Our prayer is that whatever work He began tonight, He will continue in all of their lives. Below are some pictures taken during the altar service…
Well, in the last week, since we began promoting the church pens and cards, I am impressed with how many we have managed to leave behind, give away and trade. When I checked last night, we were down to way less than a hundred pens!
Since we are running low, this morning, first thing… I have ordered more. The new ones will again be click pens, but these ones will be burgundy with white trim. They should be here in a week or so.
Keep them flowing out! We’re dePENding on you!! God Bless!
