Our Father is in Heaven....

First, an update. Dana was put on our prayer list because her dad had been close to death and didn’t know the Lord. Well her dad passed on, but not before accepting Christ into his heart. Dana, her mom and sister are having a memorial service for the family, some of whom still don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus. We need to be praying for emotional strength and for salvations. And her mom asked her to visit the following weekend, which could be another time emotions are stretched. So, lots to still be praying for, there.
I’ve mentioned our International Convention. The first session starts tonight at 7pm, here in Baltimore. It’s a great time to refill spiritual fuel tanks, have great fellowship, be built up in all the things God is doing all over the world. I’ll be spending a lot of my week there. I’m not sure, yet, how my schedule is going to be. But I have a couple of thoughts for keeping the edification coming.
One of those thoughts is a gentleman I call one of my spiritual secret weapons. His name is Todd Parsons, he’s a graduate of the same Bible college I attended. His job (and, to a point) his calling is to be a mechanic. He has a small group he emails brief meditations to and I’m fortunate to be included in that group. They’re not long like a devotional, but more of a seed thought to get each of us thinking further with God Which is why I call him my spiritual secret weapon, And everyone needs a spiritual secret weapon to help us grow in Christ. If you look around, you just might find one of your own at your church. Anyway, with permission, I may be sharing some of Todd’s gems from time to time. The next section is one of those.
Our Father is in Heaven and we’re on the earth. Let God be true and every man a liar. His name is holy and we’re not. Proverbs 1:23, “Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit to you, I will make known to you my words.” We walk in darkness, yet Proverbs 2:6 says, “For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.” There is light for our path under our Father's dominion. He did not intend for us to be blinded... Pr.1:33, Hearken...
Add Scott to our list. We’re continuing in prayer for Dana and her family. And we’re still praying for Russ, Columbia, Jimmy and Betty. Curtis, Peggy, Joyce, and Libby. And their families. And, of course, our International Convention. Thanks for the prayers and blessings.
