July Pastor’s Chat
The year is going by quickly. It is hard to believe that we are half way through the year. How have you found God to be faithful to you thus far? Has meditating on our church theme, God is faithful, helped you in your walk with the Lord?
If you have a testimony of God’s faithfulness that you would like to share with the church family we encourage you to do so in writing. You can do this through the web by posting a comment on the church blog under the post, July Pastor’s Chat or you could submit it to me in writing to be posted at a later time.
Of course we also encourage you to share your praise of God’s faithfulness verbally with all your acquaintances, friends, and family whenever God gives you opportunity. You can even sing about it like the Psalmist: “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night.” (Psalm 92:1-2).
Did you notice in the last part of the preceding verse that apparently the Psalmist had a habit of focusing on God’s lovingkindness in the morning and His faithfulness in the evening? Certainly, if we would pause to do the same thing in the morning and evening we could recall much and enter into what the Psalmist calls good—giving thanks and praising God!
A great time to enter into intercessory prayer and to bring our needs before God’s throne of grace is after a time of praise . You can then appeal to God based upon His faithfulness like the Psalmist did in Psalm 143:1, “Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.” Our God is faithful! Amen!
With prayer, Pastor Mark
