The Future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades

22 Jul

From where I sit, the future is EXTREMELY BRIGHT for those who follow the Lord!!  If you really believe Psalm 46, then once again we KNOW there is nothing to fear for those who follow God.  Those who make His will and His word a priority in their lives WILL FACE CHALLENGES, but none of these challenges are any match for our Mighty God!

As I prepare to visit Honduras and spend time with churches who really place God above ALL in their daily lives, I covet that same heart for Ebenezer.  We live in a world that works to separate us from God and actively (and aggressively) seeks to push God to the outside of the mainstream.  What the world doesn’t realize is that Jesus talked about “the mainstream” in Matthew 7:13 when He said “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.” (NIV)

I believe with all my heart that God is calling Florence, SC, back to Him.  And it starts at Ebenezer Baptist Church in the hearts of BELIEVERS.  And it spreads from there!!  As I pray and think about the next few weeks and months, I pray that we are not only up to the challenge, but that we will step up and follow Him with ALL THAT WE ARE.
