lOOk further

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

My heart goes out to hurting people.  In our work we meet lots of people who are in critical places either by their choice or their situations in life.  What I do know is that I have seen God do some incredible things.  He has done miracle after miracle and brought life and hope to countless people.

God has taken care of me.  He will supply the same for others.  That is why it is so important to share what God has done for you with others.  Our stories will influence people to get to know Him and to be drawn closer to Him.

The eyes of all look to you in hope; you give them their food as they need it.

It is the people who look to God that find real hope.  Far too often those who are in the greatest need either don’t know God or have looked away from Him.  His promise is for all those who look to Him.  Maybe that really is the need to look further.  Look past our short falls.  Look past our worry.  Look past pain and heartache to the strength of God and the hope He gives

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God.  There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

One of the things that I long for and am praying for this week is that students and their families will themselves receiving the mercy of God.  To open that door might be the acts of kindness, the smile on someone’s face or the showing that we care about them.

I pray that this year’s back2school outreach brings loads of success by sharing God’s love with as many people as possible.  This year there are 5 churches that will serve about 2,000 students and share the good news of Jesus those students and several of their families.  What a huge honor it is to share His love and grace.

Let’s look to God for help.  Let’s ask God for lives to be changed.  Let’s expect God to do things that we cannot do and patiently wait for Him.  Let’s pray.  Great days are ahead!

Micah 7:7  NLT
As for me, I look to the Lord for help.  I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me.
