One great joy of being the parents of grown children is hearing them testify to God’s faithfulness. We lived that delight on Friday afternoon, the day that our immediate family celebrated Thanksgiving in Cookeville. In the context of encouraging their younger brother during his job transition, our two older children reminded Corbin of their own faith-testing experiences early in their careers. Each shared along the common theme that we must learn the difference between contrived, man-made solutions, and trusting Jesus’ voice to lead us into obedience, even when what He asks seems a little strange. A second gold nugget of advice was that we each must learn to know the Lord’s voice for ourselves. Although advice from friends and family is valuable, second-hand leadership is not our inheritance in Christ. He speaks directly to His children when we have ears to hear and obey. We pray with trust that our grand-daughter also will eventually pick up on hearing Jesus’ voice over time while she is surrounded by influences and witnesses family provides and potentiates.
Prayer & Praise
- ????Pray that all our children will continue to experience the incomparable joy of hearing the voice of Jesus directly and quickly obeying. Continue to pray for Corbin to discover the job the Lord has prepared for him.
- ????Thank the Lord with us for timely friends. Each of us is continuously blessed by the Body of Christ dispersed throughout the world. Our Father puts us in just the right place to help one another in time of need.
- ????Ask for safe travels and encouraging meetings as we travel to Utah and Idaho for interaction with ministry partners.
