Friends of Unite4Africa:
I must admit that over the last several months with all of the craziness in the world, between the Covid and protests, my eyes have been focused on this world and I did get a little down. Watching the news and reading social media gave me the perspective that this world is out of control.
Thankfully, God helped me this last Sunday when I listened to a sermon online from Pastor Kevin Mason. Kevin was sharing how at youth camp they spent the entire time encouraging the kids to read scripture and to abide in Christ. There were three videos of some of the kids sharing how their experience at camp and reading God’s word really changed their perspective.
As I was listening it occurred to me that my perspective was wrong. I needed to look upward to the King of the Universe and focus on what He is doing. For me that meant changing my perspective in several areas of my life. The one thought that I think is important for all of us, is to realize that we are not alone in feeling a bit down and we all can get focused on the things of the world. But scripture reminds us that this is not our home (Hebrews 13:14).
So, this week I am actively praying and looking for opportunities to talk with others about our heavenly perspective and to encourage others to seek God for His sovereignty is abundantly around each of us. I am praying that through this season of life, God sets up a divine appointment with someone that is searching for truth. I will then share how our great and awesome God loves them and wants a personal relationship with them.
I have also spent some time talking to other Christians and asking about how they have seen God move through the craziness. I was amazed at how many stories I hear about what God has and continues to do to love on people. So be encouraged, God has this. He is moving in mighty ways and this is all part of His plan.
I would like to encourage each of you to read God’s word daily to be encouraged. Talk to your friends about the amazing things that GOD is doing, thousands of people are coming to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Their eternal position is begin changed forever. Hallelujah! The King of the universe, the Alpha and the Omega, choses to use me and YOU to do His will. He will use us if we are focused on Him. Praise God!
