IT’S A SMALL, BIG WORLD 1 5/5 (1)

My favorite attraction at Disney World is “It’s a Small World.” The theme song sticks in my mind as I have always loved visiting and learning about countries around the world.

In the last 20-30 years, international travel has become much more common. Consequently, we have also seen the migrating of many people to other nations. Many do this in hope of a better lifestyle and future for their families. When people change geographical locations, they take with them their customs and familiar habits.

It has intrigued me to watch the evolving of international cuisine into a cross cultural industry. Years ago, a British person would have never thought to put curry sauce on chips. In Scotland, we would have never dreamed there would be haggis curry. Tacos were for Mexicans and pizza and lasagna were Italian dishes. Now we have taco pizza and taco lasagna. Chinese curry is a popular dish. Grocery stores have many international foods.

Whereas years ago, a trip to another country was a big adventure, today it is routine. There are times my husband and I go to another country for one day which would’ve been unheard of years ago.

It used to be that communication with another country could take days or weeks. Now, through social media, it can be instant. Meetings and teaching sessions can take place through various technological means, bringing people together from around the world.

Also, the church has become a place for many cultures to blend together. It’s not uncommon to have dozens of nationalities in one church.

Indeed, it would seem the world has become smaller as so much is more easily accessible. Everything from travel to food to international friends to teaching and business can be accommodated so quickly. What once seemed so removed from us is now at our fingertips. Has the world truly become smaller? It would seem so when thinking of international accessibility. However, in reality the world is just as big as it ever was. There are more nations now than ever and more people live on planet earth than ever before. Our task of reaching this world is as great as it’s ever been. The challenges can seem insurmountable.

My heart is challenged to make good use of all the accessibility that I now have to nations and people around the world and to bring them the Gospel by every means possible. You never know who might be reached by your witness and take it back to their own nation and spread the Gospel. You never know what a positive impact can be made through technology. It would be wonderful to see social media have more positive impact than negative.

I am challenged to allow the Lord to burden me more for needs around the world. Whether it be through travel, the food I eat or the Home Bible Studies and Bible School lessons I teach via Skype or the people I meet in my church and in my city, I want to expand my ministry to reach around the world.

One of the best things I can do for the international community is broaden my vision of prayer. I am not called to every place but I can allow a burden of prayer to grip me as I am exposed to the cultures of others. There is no limit to what we can all accomplish through prayer and making ourselves available to be used anywhere by any means. Our prayers can indeed impact nations as well as individuals. When you read the news and learn of situations in other places, don’t just pass it off as having no value to you, but rather, make it a matter of prayer. Do not underestimate the valuable effect of your prayers. God’s love is truly displayed through your intercession for those you have never met but whom you choose to care deeply about.

May we all be challenged to do our part in reaching this small, BIG world!

Dealing with a letter from the devil 1 5/5 (1)

ARC Thursday Bible Study August 15, 2019 with Pastor Edwards…dealing with a letter from the devil. Some of the Scriptures included: 2 Kings 19:14-16, 2 Kings 17:17, 2 Tim 3:5, 2 Kings 18:3-7 and others.

Pastor Edwards mentioned again that we have a relationship with God through grace. We are to be mindful of what 2 Tim 3:5 says about having a form of godliness but not serving God in the correct way with faith and obedience in reverence of who he is…God. Israel in the Old Testament (2 Kings 17:17) had that problem…a form of ungodly godliness.

In today’s world, there are “Pulpits” in people life (i.e. having the wrong kind of friends, doing the wrong jobs, going to the wrong places, etc). Those “Pulpits” in some people life have a little religion with a form of godliness. But we as the true Church are to watch and pray…be vigilant and try the spirits. (See 1 John 4:1-5 KJV.)

There is always a war going on against the Saints of God or between the Church and the devil. But we are to deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow Jesus. (See Luke 9:23 KJV.) Men love darkness than the light. The good and Spiritual things in our life must come from God…the light. And the opposite of evil is not good but “truth.” He that doeth truth will come to the light.

In reference to 2 Kings 18:3-17, Pastor Edwards also said we are to be careful of worshiping our Salvation and not the God or giver of our Salvation. We are to worship God. We need to worship our faith in God. And we cannot worship our past relationships in God. Religion without God is ll about symbols and worshiping symbols instead of God. (See 2 Kings 18:3-7 KJV.) We are to worship God from the tuth and our faith in God.

Know the “ABC Essentials ON A Path of Prayer by Lori Wagner.” Like 5/5 (1)

The following guide is a navigational tool for an intimate prayer journey. It offers direction, however, feel free to divert from the suggested path and follow as the Spirit leads.

A: ACKNOWLEDGE God, the Father of creation—His sovereignty, His majesty. ACCESS His presence through praise. ASK Him to lead you in this time of prayer.

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name” (Psalm 100:4).
“Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1).
“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:6).
B: BLESS the Lord! Bless His holy name, and then bless His people, your family, and yourself.

“Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name” (Psalm 103:1).
“Give a blessing [pray for one another’s well-being, contentment, and protection}; for you have been called for this very purpose” (1 Peter 3:9, AMP).
“The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace” (Numbers 6:24–26).
C: CONFESS your failures, frailty, and sins, as well as your dependence on God. Humble yourself, but then see yourself as forgiven and restored (in the same condition as Adam or Eve before sin yet living in a world in need of God). Then COME boldly to prayer free from sin, guilt, and shame knowing Jesus enjoys your confident approach.

“O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name” (Daniel 9:19).
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).
“The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight” (Proverbs 15:8).
D: DELIGHT in Him. Give Him your full attention. DESIRE Him and to understand His Word, heart, mission, plans, and strategies.

“Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee” (Psalm 73:25).
“Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (Psalm 37:4).
“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7).
E: EXPRESS your prayers in English. Pray with understanding for known needs such as spiritual and emotional healing, illnesses, relationship issues, and financial concerns. Be EXPLICIT with your requests, and remember to include church and secular leadership.

“I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also” (1 Corinthians 14:15).
“Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11).
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Timothy 2:1–2).
