… It was so bad we didn’t think we were going to make it. We felt like we’d been sent to death row, that it was all over for us. As it turned out, it was the best thing that could have happened. Instead of trusting in our own strength or wits to get out of it, we were forced to trust God totally—not a bad idea since he’s the God who raises the dead! And he did it, rescued us from certain doom. And he’ll do it again, rescuing us as many times as we need rescuing.
You and your prayers are part of the rescue operation—I don’t want you in the dark about that either. I can see your faces even now, lifted in praise for God’s deliverance of us, a rescue in which your prayers played such a crucial part…… it wasn’t by any fancy footwork on our part. It was God who kept us focused on him, uncompromised. (2 Cor 1:8)
These past few weeks have been extremely difficult, not just for Lydia and the Petch family but for quite a few of you, it seems.
Holy Father, I want to see broken lives made whole. Hurt’s healed and the whole world to ‘know’ that there most certainly ‘is’ a Living, Redeeming, and Reviving GOD in Heaven that Your Son Jesus has beautifully revealed. Our Heavenly Father who has decreed His perfect will of Peace to us … Amen!
Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches.” (Rev 3:6)
