“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thess. 5:16-18 (underlining added)……………….
Please go where God sends you. When you know it’s Him sending you, please go. For Him. Why should you go? Because He’s God. Today I went into New York City to see an apartment I didn’t feel good about seeing because of something I learned about the people managing it. A nice real estate agent I did feel good about by phone and email agreed to show it to me. My beloved parents encouraged me to go and see it despite my strong reservations about the management company. I knew the Lord was sending me. So I went.
It turns out the Lord wasn’t sending me to see the apartment, which turned out to be grossly misrepresented in how it had been advertised. The Lord was sending me to the kind young man who showed it to me because he and his family were in desperate need of prayer and I was greatly humbled to have the opportunity to spend time with him in the little apartment God had sent me to hearing his story and praying for him and his family.
Would you join me please in praying for them? The young man’s cousin was in a horrific accident not long ago, and his aunt was so anguished over her son’s condition that she has gone missing in New York City. The search continues, and my agent shared how the police apparently sent helicopters over the river to see if her body had been found. Her husband is dealing with a missing wife, a son’s tragic accident, and several of his relatives were murdered in the country from which he immigrated.
I still don’t have an apartment to move into in New York City, but most importantly I was given an amazing opportunity to pray for a family in dire need.
Please stand in faith with me and pray as the Lord leads you. And please keep your hearts and eyes open as you go through your everyday lives to how the Spirit of God might lead you to love, encourage, pray for, help, support, comfort, and minister to a world in dire need of the Gospel message and the love of Jesus Christ and hearing how to believe in and forever follow Christ Jesus who is forever Lord!
