BE ENCOURAGED

BE ENCOURAGED

GOD CAN DO ANYTHING HE WANTS!

I have been called idealistic, unrealistic and several other negative labels throughout the past 32 years.  Recently, I was reminded of comments made when ask to speak for a Saturday night service to six hundred (600) men of God at a spiritual retreat in 1987. At that moment, I interpreted comments, “who do you think you are”, “what makes you so special” to belittle me. I became aware overtime, that those and many other negative comments not only belittled me, they were questioning the move of God and doubting He could work through someone such as myself. Unaware at the time, I was being recorded, years later I received a call from a young man that stated how that recording “saved his life”. BE ENCOURAGED, GOD CAN DO ANYTHING HE WANTS. In the last five (5) years, as an evangelist, I have experienced comments that strongly remind me of 1987. Comments such as “good luck working with churches”, “you can’t do but one
thing at the time”, evangelist are here to get our money, people and leave” and the standard, “who do you think you are”. However, this time I am saddened not for myself as I was so many years ago, I am saddened at the lack of hope found in our faith as believers, concluding, that our dissension is larger than God’s will and His love for us. Beginning the weekend of June 6, 2019 many “Voices” with Emerge Life Events, ministered to
the second largest attendance of inmates in our history and we recorded large numbers of responses from those in attendance. Saturday, that same weekend, in Warsaw NC “Voices” with Emerge were walking neighborhoods, praying and passing out flyers for the June 15th crusade. Also, other “Voices” who are church pastors and leaders were meeting with city officials, pursuing funding and overcoming details for this large cooperative effort. Simultaneously, I was in Morrisville, NC speaking to pastors and elders of the Southern
Baptist Association, concerning the biblical relationship between evangelist and the organized church. Also, I was in contact with legislators on the progress of Emerge Skills4Life project. In Isaiah 55:8 we are told “His thoughts are not our thoughts neither are His ways our ways. Relentlessly pursue the utterance of the Holy Spirit in your life. BE ENCOURAGED, GOD CAN DO ANYTHING HE WANTS WITH WHO HE CHOOSES.

COME GO WITH US, BE THAT VOICE!
