Just a Few Quick Thoughts…

Posted on: June 21, 2009

Random thoughts from the week:

In the last week I’ve witnessed the hand of God move in a powerful way. While in DC I spent a great deal of time in prayer about several issues going on up there and over the next week God came through in an incredible fashion.  For example my oldest daughter’s boyfriend’s rental was being foreclosed on. His roomie found places for everyone. Boyfriend’s place is a room in a large home. When Daughter and Boyfriend walked in they saw a man that she had been seeing at the Prayer Furnace. A place they go to that is similar to International House of Prayer. Boyfriend has been seeking a deeper walk and this is it.

When they headed off on their mission trip to Peru their flight was cancelled due to mechanical failure. Then their plane ended up being late and they missed the connecting flight from Dallas. And they were then sent to Los Angeles. LA to Peru and not Miami to Peru??? And it was at LAX where a friend was coming in that morning. Now mechanical failure prevented them from seeing this friend, but the moral of this story is that any sort of change in schedule is probably God-ordained. He will move planes around to get people together.

Twitter has overnight revolutionized a nation and the world. A friend of mine named Kathy wrote: “what if there had been Twitter in the Holocaust? Vietnam?” Exactly…and the cool thing is that people are twittering back ideas for the revolt. We have to remember what Martin Luther King, Jr said in his Letter From A Birmingham Jail: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” We have to help those whose voice have been taken from them, because one day you might need a voice.

My last thought for today is this…as you know I’m from the South and I’m a conservative. So many times were hear about someone being “worldly.” Worldly means television, internet, Facebook, or whatever. Long ago it was listening to the regular radio station rather than the Christian station. Today I wondered if “worldly thinking” with Jesus might not be so much secular radio or embracing equality, but maybe being in the world is more a heart thing: lust, envy, greed, pride, etc. Pastor A envies Pastor B’s church and that is worldly. Just a thought…

My summary of all these random thoughts: trust God is moving even when it seems like all is lost; speak out against injustice because you never know when it might happen and you need a hand; don’t judge by regional standards of what is God. God is moving and just because He is late doesn’t mean he isn’t working—he might have a plane to re-route on your behalf. Finally, remember Jesus came and died for us. He gave us grace when we didn’t and don’t deserve it. Go and do likewise!
