In my early morning time with the Lord I heard, “Houston, you have a problem.”
Needless to say, my prayers were directed.
The Remnant of the Lord who remain in Houston (and environs) need to seek the Lord as to where to relocate, and do so while there is yet time. If they do not, soon they will merely be able to flee in the clothes on their backs.
Some have been (and remain) fearful, because they don’t see themselves has having the means to move. Is it not in our trials that our Lord can show His bounty and love for us? We Americans (especially, but not exclusively) are used to the idea that we can do everything for ourselves … and if we cannot, then it is not to be; and if we cannot see how WE can do something that we think the Lord is leading us to do, we question whether it was really the Lord’s will for us to do it.
Corrie Ten Boom told the story about her father not giving her the train ticket until she was about to step up into the train car. Commit to doing whatever our Lord directs and He shall provide the next step. We need to stop thinking that we have to do everything by our own might. Where is God’s glory in that?
Author: Jim Kermott
Jim Kermott, an “Army Brat”, was born in Germany and raised in Okinawa, Panama, and several of the United States, as part of a Roman Catholic family. It was on Okinawa that the missionary nun who taught his First Communion class invited him to have a personal relationship with God the Father and with our Lord Jesus Christ. At Fort Bragg, North Carolina, he was baptized in the Holy Spirit at the time of his Confirmation in 1965; nobody told him it was “just something Catholics go through” and he paid attention to all that teaching about what the Holy Spirit did for the Believers at Pentecost — the Charismatic Renewal was getting started up in Ohio at that time. If asked (and sometimes volunteered), he will tell people who insist on labels that he is a “transcended catholic”, and that it is our personal relationship with God that matters. Jim has always had a heart for encouraging people where they are, and especially to get closer to God.
