The Lord blessed again in our meeting last night. Brother Gilliam preached from 2 Corinthians 4 about how to build up the inner man. It was a very practical, helpful message. it was also convicting and challenging, to say the least. The Lord spoke to my heart about my own personal time with Him. I want to do a better job of feeding my soul on the Word of God and spending more time in communion with the Lord. I have come to understand that I can do nothing without Him, John 15:5, but I can do all things through Him, Phil. 4:13. I need Him more than I need the next breath of air in my lungs! I need Him to be able to live godly in this world. I need Him to be able to serve Him effectively. I need Him if I am going to feed His people from Word of God. I need Him if I am going to interact properly with those around me. I need Him if I am to love the sinner, serve the saint and preach the Word. I need Him! As Paul said, “For in him we live, and move, and have our being…” Acts 17:28. Please rpay for me as I seek Him. I want to knwo Him better, and by His grace I will.
Please continue to pray for our meeting. As usual, some are coing hungry and others are staying home. God knows hearts and those who desire something from His hand will recevie it. Those who do not will receive nothing. I am not selfish, but I will take their part of they do not want it. I need Him!
