|What a blessed day we had yesterday in the LORD. The building was full, the parking lot was double parked in many places. God did some wonderful things and we were thrilled to see more people saved and baptized as well. We started a goal of raising $100,000.00 by the end of the year, and so we started yesterday with our miracle offering and pledges. I am expecting God to meet the need. |
I'm reading in Genesis again, and here are a few thoughts. Please know that Thursday morning, I leave for India, and it could be two weeks before I have a blog done because I do not know about the internet access that they have there. Just for your information.
1) THE LORD WILL PROVIDE- In Gen. 22:14, Abraham called the name of the place where the ram was provided in the stead of his son, Isaac, Jehovah-jireh. This means: The Lord will Provide. How important it is for us to still remember that the Lord will still provide for us today! We are His people, it is His Church, our children are His children, possessions entrusted to us belong to Him.... He will provide! He will provide!! Let it sink deep into your spirit, the God of Heaven will provide for you.
2) LADIES WRESTLING- Wow! I didn't realize that ladies wrestling was first in the Bible. I heard of it on TV, but little did I know that they may have gotten this from the Bible. In Gen. 30:8, it says: "And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed:" So, there you have it.
3) ISAAC DIED- In Gen. 35:28,29 we see that Isaac died being 180 years old. Isaac had his boys, Esau and Jacob, when he was sixty years old, and then lived another 120 years. So that means that Isaac died when they boys were 120 years old themselves! Jacob was 130 when he went to Egypt to live with Joseph. Ishmael, Isaac's half brother, only lived to 137 years. It is interesting to me to follow the timelines of the Bible. Do a study and you will be enriched by it.
Have to go for today. It is beautiful outside and I'm expecting a good day in the LORD! Pastor Mike Mutchler
