Lord grant me success in reaching the next generation…..
The prayer journey this week has been amazing….I have to admit that I haven’t been fervently seeking God in prayer the past couple days…but He has been seeking me out and speaking to me through His word ( and that is due to all of you praying for me). So yesterdays prayer was for success in reaching the next generation and I happened to stumble upon this scripture and it leaped off of the page….
Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me, Lead these people, but you have not let me know whom you will send with me’. You have said, I know you by name and you have found favor with me. ‘If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.” The Lord replied, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest-everything will be fine for you.”
What a word from God or what? Let me tell you something that has been troubling me these past two weeks, loneliness. I am the only single in Kampala from the IMB and live in a 4/4 house all by myself, with no TV. I have been wondering, “Lord, what in the world are you doing keeping me here alone, are you gonna send someone for me to work with, befriend, or just hang with and share a cup of tea”. Then this verse came along, and did you notice God’s answer? The Lord told Moses that He will go with him, the Almighty God, Creator of the Universe, Father to All, Comforter, LOVE….. will personally GO with Him on this journey of leading His people. Now if I have God going with me on this journey of leading His people in Kampala, I know that I will have success in reaching this next generation. As hard as that is to except that I will remain physically alone it is also comforting knowing that God is going to be with me. And to add to all of this the theme of our meetings this week in Kenya is Joshua 1:9…. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified: do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Is God not Good or what? It won’t be easy, but it will be rewarding!!!!!
