"Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes!" 1 Samuel 12:16
You know that's true. If we just look around we will see the great things the Lord is doing right before our eyes! Some of the stuff going on around the world is..
People in Iran are getting hungry for the Lord.
People in middle school (Hewitt/Clay and others) are starting things like 'Redeemed'.
People in high school are standing for God no matter how hard it is.
Football players are choosing to say that they aren't doing the whole football thing on their own but that's it God working through them.
Everyone is doing something for the Lord. And it's the Lord having us become so hungry and thirsty for Him. I mean there is so much junk that has gone on this past 6 or 7 months and more. The main thing i was thinking about was the girl in Florida who went to a friends house and was basically jumped when she got inside. Praise the Lord she survived, but how do you get that messed up that you think because one of your friends stole your brush (allegedly) you need to teach her a lesson by nearly beating her to death? Mainly in the head? What's wrong with that?
We NEED people now more than ever standing for God. So that stuff like this can be prevented. If everyone who knows Jesus told 3 people... well we'd start a revival!! All this typing in wanting to encourage you that no matter what your going through, situations or what not, please stand for God and hold fast to Him. You CAN do all things through Him because He gives you strength!!! (Philippians 4:13) Remember that Jesus loves you!!!!!! He desires you and has passion for you!! So let Him have something to have passion for! God shower His blessings on you~
