For two whole years Paul stayed there in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him. He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance! Acts 28:30-31
“We should not shrink from opportunities where our faith may be tried. The more I am in a position to be tried in faith, the more I will have the opportunity of seeing God’s help and deliverance. Every fresh instance in which He helps and delivers me will increase my faith. The believer should not shrink from situations, positions, or circumstances in which his faith may be tried, but he should cheerfully embrace them as opportunities to see the hand of God stretched out in help and deliverance. Thus his faith will be strengthened.”
George Mueller in A narrative of some of the Lord’s dealings with George Müller: Written by himself (London: Nisbet, 1855) 460.
I am thankful for this quote from Mueller today about help and deliverance.
Despite house arrest in Rome, today’s Scripture notes that the Apostle Paul continued to serve with all boldness and without hindrance. We must follow suit.
The Latin America regional event has exceeded all expectations. Reply if you want a copy of the trip report. We will complete it today with God’s help before returning to our countries tonight.
Thanks for your prayers. Participants have been empowered to replicate trainings to grow stewards and to help ministries follow standards across Latin America. God has worked powerfully.
Moments this week were a faith-stretching week for all of us. For example, the opposition from the evil one is real. One person flew to Panama from Ecuador and was not let in for odd reasons and deported.
But the victory of Jesus has already been won so for everything we need, we pray. Right now I am praying for about $200,000 for GTP by 31 December 2022. Pray please, let’s exchange shrinking for supplication.
