Throughout the year, the Lord has given our ministry the opportunity to conduct several Striving Together Conferences across the country. Earlier this week, we conducted our final Striving Together Conference of the year in Great Falls, Montana. The meeting was held at the Heritage Baptist Church where Dr. S.C. Schearer, a good friend of mine, has pastored for many years.
While in Montana, it was a thrill for me to meet with several pastors who are doing great things for God in that region of the country. Their testimony of faithfulness was an encouragement to me. This was truly a time of iron sharpening iron.
As we drove toward Great Falls late Wednesday afternoon, I couldn’t help but admire the wonderful creation of God. The sun was just beginning to set while a couple hundred antelope grazed in the distance. It was a reminder to me that in the most difficult times of political and economic instability, we can rest in the fact that our God is greater than our every problem. May we not forget that He is great and that He is in control!
II Chronicle 2:5-6a
And the house which I build is great: for great is our God above all gods. But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him?
