A. Have the kids walk to the beginning of our rug and then to the tip of our rug. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep issues of God” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10). God had put a dread in their god way is perfect hearts towards His folks, however now they noticed Israel taking off their armor and stripping off their clothes. That's exactly what we do after we strip off our robes of religion and let go of our confidence in God.
Thanks needs to be given to God in each circumstance of life; in adversity, as Job did; when not in so snug and agreeable a body of soul as to be wished for…even underneath the temptations of Satan…since the grace of God is sufficient to bear up under them, and deliver out of them. Generally I feel I have a look at it backwards - considering it is all about me speaking with God. However it's also a time for God to speak with me. It doesn't have to be large and lofty, nor long and pious.
When God known as us to start the church I now pastor, we had no idea how He would use us. However not every week has gone with out someone giving his or her life to Jesus. Persons are discovering Him and then rapidly maturing into trustworthy disciples, growing of their knowledge of God. I'm convinced that God will reveal Himself much more powerfully — not just in salvations but also in outreach, in helping the poor, in impacting the city.
