Today is Thursday.  It has been a busy day.  I just got home an hour ago helping a new church getting started by knocking on doors.  We worked hard getting out thousands of invitations throughout the city.  It was good to have about 36 of our people helping. Tomorrow is Friday and a day off.  Looking forward to it.  Hope you have a great day and evening.  I'm in Judges, and here are a few thoughts:

1) ANOTHER GENERATION- What America is experiencing is not unique.  In Judges 2:10, it reads:  "And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers:  and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor ye the works which he had done for Israel."  There is always that ebb and flow throughout the generations where nations are close to God and nations stray from God.  We feel that ebb and flow in our own lives. (sadly) We also see the ebb in our own great nation.  It is just sad to be in this great nation when we see the ebb of Christianity and it's influence being felt all around us.  Let us do our part to keep the flow going till Jesus comes!!

2) THE LORD IS WITH THEE- In Judges 6: 12, an angel of the LORD says to Gideon:  "The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour."  Now we know Gideon was shy, timid, and a faithless leader, but God saw what God could make him into.  Do you see yourself as you see yourself, or do you see yourself as God sees yourself?  You are a child of the King.  You have been born again into royalty!  You are the object of the LORD's affection!  You are going to spend eternity with the creator of the ends of the earth!  Wow!  We are something when seen through God's eyes.  The LORD is with us and we are by His strength, a mighty man of valour!  Praises!

3) CIRCUMSTANTIAL- In Judges 9:53 it reads: "And a certain woman cast a piece of a millstone upon Abimelech's head, and all to brake his skull."  Abimelech had rebelled against God and so God's judgment fell upon him.  It came from a woman throwing down a piece of pottery from the wall.  The Bible says "a certain woman".  God uses unknown people and unknown circumstances to bring about His known will for our lives.  (For good and bad; For blessings and judgment)  With God, there are no such things as happenstance.  God has a plan and a purpose, but behind the scenes, He is working out His will for our lives.  It looks circumstantial.... but it's not!

Hope you have a wonderful day my friend!  Pastor Mike Mutchler
