Sunday, February 4, 2012. Have you ever been to the backside of the desert? When Moses went there, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of a burning bush and the bush was not consumed. God called to him from the bush, Moses, Moses. And he said, “Here Am I.”
There are blessings on the backside of the desert, but we have to say, “here am I,” and turn aside. I wonder how many times we say, “I am busy right now,” I am on way to Springfield, Kohls and JCP is having a huge sale or just wait a few minutes I am finishing up the laundry? Blessings missed out on.
God has plans for us. In Exodus 5:1, Moses told Pharoah, “let my people go, and we have read the Bible about the plagues, the blood on the door posts of the children of Isreal, I love that scripture, Exodus 12:26, paraphrased, “When I see the blood I will pass over you.”
There is redemption for all mankind, only, if the blood has been applied to your life.
Morning prayer requests were asked for Bonnie, Pam and Sandy, Missy and Lena H., Joe, Don Graham, Marvin G. and storm victims. God knows all about our sickness and problems. We need to be in turn with Jesus at all times.
We had a special service Sunday evening. T.J. and Courtney Stout and family conducted the evening music and T.J. preached for us. He said, we see the problem, we state the problem, but do we do anything about it? We are content to exist inside our four walls.
T.J. also used John 6:1 – the miracle of the loaves and fishes. There was a young lad there, five barley loves and two fish, and Andrew said, “but what are they among so many?”
God is a miracle maker, nothing is too big or too small for Him.
We want to see the miracles, “what can he do for us?” What we should be asking, “Lord what can I do for you?”
Do you have a void in your life? Are you looking for peace? God can fill that void and give you peace.

Thought for the week, God has plans for us , but He don’t need our help.
