I am now sitting in a McDonald's in Stillwater getting ready for an afternoon service. As I was sitting here the verse that came to mind was Jesus leaving the 99 and going after the 1. People are priceless in the eyes of the Lord. He will spare no expense to bring His children back into His family. Yes Lord, My partners and I want to be a part of that!

There are times when I am not sure what to say about the service I have just been in. I feel like many times I am repeating myself from service to service. Then, I was reminded of the power in the Word. Even when there are not any "wild" or noticeable manifestations of God's power, when His Word is preached there is tremendous power made available to those who are hearing. Never underestimate the power of God's Word.

We had a great time this morning. Even though I was not on the schedule this month the residents told the staff, "It's the first Tuesday of the month and Pastor Paul will be here at 10." The room was full when I showed up. I began to minister on the promises of God. As I did several residents began to cry. They heard me say, "Every promise God has ever made is yes in Christ." Residents, in general, are desperate for answers. God has given but we must also learn how to receive. God is so incredibly good!
Just a note. It seem 2 Cor. 1:19-20 is just to good to be true. Residents are looking at me like "That can't be in the Bible." But it is! EVERY PROMISES GOD HAS EVER MADE IS YES IN HIM.

This month we are dwelling on 2 Corinthians 1: 19-20
"For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by me and Silas and Timothy, was not “Yes” and “No,” but in him it has always been “Yes.” 20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God."
I know I have read this many times before but this time it hit me like never before.
EVERY PROMISE GOD HAS EVER MADE IS YES TO ME, IN CHRIST!
We are camping right there. We raised our hands in praise to our wonderful Lord and Savior.
Occasionally there are times when scheduling falls apart. This afternoon was one of those times. First of all, it's the very first day of the month and the activities director has been sick at home for a few days. Last months calendar was still up on the wall so those that were here didn't know what to do. They devised an activity for the afternoon not knowing what the regular schedule was. I've learned through the years to handle this a little better than I have in the past. I will be back and everything will be just fine.
