Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

grace and power

“Often God seems to place His children
in positions of profound difficulty
leading them into a wedge
from which there is no escape;
contriving a situation which no human judgment
would have permitted,
had it been previously consulted.
The very cloud conducts them thither.
You may be thus involved at this very hour.
It does seem perplexing and very serious
to the last degree;
but it is perfectly right.
The issue will more than justify Him
who has brought you hither.
It is a platform for the display
of His almighty grace and power.
He will not only deliver you,
but in doing so He will give you a lesson
that you will never forget;
and to which, in many a psalm and song in after days,
you will revert.
You will never be able to thank God enough
for having done just as He has.”
- F. B. Meyer
