How exciting to ask Father God a question and see Him graciously and generously answer! Today I have an invitation
Pam and I are leading a connect group called: Finding Answers to Knotty Questions. It’s really a class on learning how to inquire of God. This is an online class using zoom so you can easily join us from home! We begin Tuesday Feb 15th AT 7pm (PST) and meet weekly 10 weeks. You can find the link below.
Rebekah becomes pregnant! There is a tremendous jostling in her womb. She can’t get an appointment for a sonogram. So, she goes to inquire of the Lord. God answers her seeking!
“Two nations are in your womb,
and two peoples from within you will be separated;
one people will be stronger than the other,
and the older will serve the younger.” Genesis 25:23
So history proves it out!
Daniel was pondering the desolation and exile of the Jewish nation while captive in Babylon. When will this be over?
He pours through Jeremiah’s prophecies and finds the prophet declare, “This whole country will become a desolate wasteland, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon seventy years.” Jeremiah 25:11
He looks at his wrist watch. “O my goodness! It’s one minute to 70 years!”
He and his friends go into deep prayer. An angel shows up. The captives are released and free to return to Israel! Daniel searched and got liberating answers!
We all have questions. Some are personal like Rebekah’s
Should I marry Bertha?
Invest in bitcom?
Move to Baltimore?
Where did I lose my phone?
Some quests are global like Daniel’s.
How in the world can we disciple nations?
Restore righteous government?
Overcome evil in education, the media, and science?
Prepare the way for Christ’s return?
We invited you to join us! Together we will learn how to ask, seek and knock – and so – receive, find and have doors open?
Put it in your calendar. We’ll see you then!
