"Lord you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise. You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down. You are familiar with all my ways." Psalm 139: 1-3

The Bible tells us that we are to make plans… not just sit around and feel sorry for our present situation in self pity.. We are called to be proactive in believing for God’s intervention in our lives. As we make our plans He will establish them, as we honour Him our lives will know His favour. It’s not about sitting around waiting for God to turn up.. it’s about choosing to step out in faith and have a go. He actually turned up a long time ago and completed the work that was needed to redeem humanity from death and self destruction. That’s what Jesus came to earth to do. He made a way for us to intimately know the Father’s plans and promises.

Reading through Psalm 139 is always an inspiring revelation. God knows me for who I am and despite that… by His grace, is willing to work with me on making me a better man for His Name and His Kingdom.. He is familiar with my ways and everything that goes through my mind… wow. That’s a humbling thought. He created my innermost being and formed me in my Mother’s womb. He says I’m fearfully and wonderfully made! And His works are wonderful!!

"All the days ordained for me are written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts O God! How vast is the sum of them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. 'when I awake, I am still with you." Psalm 139:16-18

It is so good to know that He is still with us.. in our prayers, plans and promises. In the madness of a world that has lost its way, keep declaring to the Lord “I am still with you”. 

Thanks again for your prayers and support as we map out the rest of 2017 with missions and concert tours.

Godspeed,
