THAT WE MAY BE MUTUALLY ENCOURAGED BY EACH OTHER’S FAITH

Calling All Partners

I am currently filling many of my days with calls to pastors for more meetings. At any given time, I am working on a list of 50 churches. When I contact a church, I cross it off and add another to the top of list. It’s exciting to see the Lord fill up the next year of meetings in the calendar and to anticipate the friendships he has in store for us in the near future.

Attitude and perspective are inseparably related. The busyness of travel and the general chaos that is life on the road can be an occasion for loss of perspective and a temptation to an unbelieving attitude. One help that God sent my way was an old Watts hymn we heard for the first time in one of the churches we visited recently. It opened with words fit to shock me back into a biblical perspective: Great God, how infinite art Thou! What worthless worms are we! The hymn continued with comfort that obstacles in reaching our goal of serving in Kenya are merely “trifling

cares” in God’s eyes. His eternal plan “moves on...undisturbed.” Seeing things from his perspective, we can stand amazed that he has everything under control. Because of the work of Christ, we can delight in the God who dwarfs our setbacks and frustrations. We can seek his will for today, for the hour, knowing that he is infinitely well-equipped to take care of tomorrow for his people. This infinite and eternal power of God to bring about happy ends to his affairs is a reason to Let the whole race of creatures bow, And pay their praise to Thee. z
