Recently visited China and the one thing that was central in my mind was that this country doesn’t like Christians or Christian worship.
And I am always honest with you guys…
So I am just telling you that your girl was on her knees begging God to not let me get locked up in this country cause HE knows that I can’t control myself when it comes to praising HIM!
You see, I have a problem! A big one… I love to boast… and not just any kind of boasting… I am very specific in my boasting! Nothing delights me more than boasting about the power, strength, grace, mercy and abounding love of God.
Prior to my trip, a bible verse caught my attention:
““Return home and tell how much God has done for you.” So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him.” Luke 8:39
You know this caused me to do my praise dance.
For those that worried about me travelling, I called and shared the good news I had found in the bible and encouraged everyone not to worry… God was going to do amazing things on my journey.
I am still on my journey, but I can praise God for so many things! Here is my current boasting now to you:
- New friends in a beautiful country created by the Most High God
- A successful trip with lots of great networking
- A deeper understanding of the culture and beliefs of China to drive target prayer
- Safe journeys to China and in China
I can go on and on… but you get my point.
Food for thought: What can you boast about today… telling others about the goodness and greatness of our God?
Prayer: Oh what a mighty God we serve! Creator, Most High God, King of Kings, El-Shaddai. How we love you and lift up your name in praise and adoration. Lord, when we want to boast about anything that is not you, forgive us and cause a stirring within our heart to stop. May your light and joy shine through our lives so that we can impact others. May your name be glorified and praised. In Jesus name. Amen
Mercy, grace, and love be with you.
