18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners. 19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.
Our views of life and ways of life seem good to us, but they end in death (Proverbs 14:12). God’s plan of recovery (salvation, grace, restoration to full fellowship) has 5 parts: “I will heal you.” “I will lead you.” “I will help you.” “I will comfort you.” “I will give you peace, no matter how far away from Me you have gone.”
Moses had an anger problem. He actually killed a man in Egypt because of his anger. God’s recovery plan for Moses was 40 years in the making. But one day, on the backside of the desert, in the middle of nowhere, God started his work with a recovered, Mighty man.
Our week started with a Pastor’s meeting and then with a kind of reunion with a few of the “charter members” of the original Boarding House Church plus one new member.
We also spent a lot of time translating ministry materials from English to Tagalog, figuring out why the printer won’t work, and stuff.
I got a chance to do some new bible studies at the Christian school, hoping those will turn into regular discipleship classes. We also did some local outreach in a nearby Barangay, where 2 people accepted Christ and prayed for Salvation! God is so good.
We also launched the Celebrate Recovery Ministry in Malitam on Sunday afternoon.
Thank you, Lord, for the life you give so abundantly!
Salamat po, Panginoon, para sa masaganang buhay!
