We truly have an awesome God that really knows us and knows how to use us! He designed His plans and His ways to be empowered through our weaknesses. He must have been thinking about me when He put that rule into order! 2 Corinthians 12-7-10; 13:4 explains it better...but thank you Jesus that you can use me because of my weaknesses. I ain't got to go looking or trying to be weak! That happens without effort or having to look for it...or is that just me? But when I can totally depend on God and allow Him to lead me to accomplish His will, through His power, then I see things happening that I know for sure were not because I did them or because I was an expert in that area! And it's neat to see that God has our best interests in mind when He set that in motion...so that we would not become proud or trust in our own strengths and 'know how'. That leads to destruction and failure! Every time! So He made it to where we can go to Him, trusting completely in His Word and leading, and knowing fully that whatever He has asked or directed us to do will happen! And it ain't got NOTHING to do with our strength or knowledge. But God still chooses to use us to do it...pretty cool!
We are buying the land today, Lord willing. This is a lot of money and pretty scary and nervous to do this...that's perfect! God's power in made perfect in our weaknesses! So let God's power come and His will be done with this land and the money being spent to buy it and the construction of the ministry! All this seemed impossible a couple of months ago! But look at it now! It's starting to roll and move toward the vision God gave us! And seeing how it took Noah 120 years to build the ark and see the flood...Abraham never saw that awesome nation God promised him...and others received their promise the same day...it's going to happen in God's perfect timing! We are excited for what God is doing and pray that we continue to rely on His guidance and power to complete the work that He has started! Praise the Lord!
