Lots of people are trying to make sense of the days we’re living in. For some this is a reset for life; for others it’s a wilderness and desert season that we’re just trying to survive through; still for others it’s a time of preparation for greater days to come. Whatever others or your or my thoughts, I think this is a season where we simply need to allow God to be God. That we acknowledge we’re really not sure about the days we’re living in, but we’re sure about the God whom we worship. That we need to look to Him, trust in Him, listen for His voice, and follow Him.
This is what David Jeremiah encourages us to do in the YouTube clip below. David Jeremiah has been the pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church since 1981. In 1982, Jeremiah founded Turning Point Ministries which focuses on multi-media Bible instruction. Turning Point can be heard worldwide on more than 2000 stations, as well as online. Turning Point Ministries also developed a national television program in 2000. The programme features a 30-minute Bible study followed by an hour of preaching and worship music. Turning Point Television can reach a total of 2.7 billion households worldwide.
In 1994 and again in 1998, Jeremiah was diagnosed with lymphoma. During that season and since he’s learnt more and more what it means to ‘Shelter In God!’ May you take comfort and encouragement from his wisdom and his words today.
