Don't Miss What God is Doing
I hope this finds you resting in the peace and security of our Heavenly Father during this season of uncharted territory and the unknown. One thing we are certain of is that our God is good, in control, and doing so much in this season that we can’t see right now and is preparing us for what is about to come. With that, I felt impressed to share James 1: 2-4 TPT:
"My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties, see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking."
What James tells us is that we should actually be joyful in this season because the trial is producing endurance, and endurance is producing character in us that typically we don't see or understand in the moment. As I have been experiencing so much peace in this season I asked the Lord, “Why am I walking in so much peace? What is this?” The Lord immediately took me back to three years ago, reminding me of when I was entering the darkest season of my life. I could barely get up in the morning and it took His miracles to get me out of bed. But in that season what was planted in me, I couldn't see then, but I see now. That season produced character and endurance in me of which I'm seeing the fruit of it today.
So I want to encourage you, wherever you are, to know that God is doing so much in this season in and through the Church, people, neighbors, nonprofits and businesses.
We are excited to be in this season and here at Rescue America, we have not slowed down. Our hotlines continue to ring and this week we have had three exits and are working on a case with four international victims, which is new territory for us. In this season He is also showing us new innovative strategies to release His redemptive solutions, therefor we are continually pressing in to hear and see if these are new ways to move forward, and expand our vision.
I want to encourage you to ask God what He wants to show you in this season, in your home, your family, and in your workplace. I continue to hear the Lord saying “Do not miss what I am doing in this season. Do not overlook me.” Press in and see what God wants to show you, to develop in you, and to teach you in this season.
Thank you to our donors and to our volunteers for making it possible to continue this work during this time. Our financial need is greater than ever as we continue to press forward in the work we are doing and increase the work as we expand into new territories.
