It Will Be All Right

Hello all,

What a powerful service we had at GWOD again today (Sunday) and we are in awe of our God.  When God is in charge and our flesh is out of the way He does the miraculous among us.  Testimonies went forth of God's power in healing, saving, delivering and much more.  His Presence was strong and we have been refreshed.  In studying Matthew 14:22-36, it was brought forth by Eldress Ollie that Jesus is the Master who sends, the Intercessor who prays, and the Saviour who delivers.  As the teaching went forth there was an overwhelming response of awe and love expressed from each of us to Jesus and a breaking forth into singing "Jesus, I love you more than anything."  He responded and His love and compassion was poured out all over us. 

Pastor Crowder made the lesson very clear for everybody by saying, "Like Peter, when we take our eyes off of Jesus and look at everything else around us (the billows, the rain, the wind) we miss the Lord.  Keep your eyes on Jesus."  She pointed out that God was working miracles on the water.  Jesus said "Come" and Peter walked but then he doubted.  "When we see God moving in our lives many times we doubt and don't believe His Word.  This is why many of us are not in awe of Him at all times, then we doubt and we stop!" 

So church, let's keep our eyes on Jesus and not on our circumstances and by all means keep going and don't stop!  We don't want to miss God in what He is doing.  When He says "Come" we certainly do not want to be sitting in the boat wondering if it is really Jesus speaking, nor do we want to be stepping out onto the water with "little faith," and being full of doubt and fear because we're looking at all of the conditions happening around us instead of keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus and believing His Word.   Let's follow Jesus' example by getting alone in prayer first, then we can hear His voice and recognize that it is He, and we can step out in great faith to meet Him on the water as He is manifesting His miraculous power.  We will burst into worship and stand in reverence and in awe of Him just for who He is.  What a joy it is when He uses us as His vessels to bring others to Him.  Really He doesn't need us at all, but He chooses to use us!  Thank Him now!

The praise team worshiped and Minister Alvina sprang forth into more songs and prophesied, "It's going to be all right."  Pastor Crowder broke forth in the Spirit with more songs and deliverance was the result. Then Pastor Crowder gave us more Words of encouragement in the following Scriptures:

Psalm 31:20  Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man; thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.  God will keep the enemy off of you.

Psalm 62:8  Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.  He is a refuge for you, cry out to Him, trust Him.

Psalm 34:7  The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. The Lord is in our presence, he is delivering you.  

Prov 14:26  In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. We have strong confidence in Him with no fear or doubt; a reverence and awe of Him.  He is our refuge.

Prov 11:6  The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.  The upright shall be delivered.  Keep your eyes on Jesus, believe and obey His Word, and walk in the Spirit.

Psalm 7:10  My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.  Stay in the will of God.  God is going to do some great things.

Psalm 59:9  Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence.  Wait upon the Lord because He is fighting for you.  He will do it.

2 Kings 17:39  But the LORD your God ye shall fear; and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies. He will deliver you out of all of it, everything!   It is not what you want all of the time, but what He wants.  (Pastor calls this her "Book of comfort" she reads it often.)

Psalm 9:10  And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.  Put your trust in Him!  Seek Him!  He is your husbandman.

Psalm 31:23  O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.  Love Him and be faithful.  He will preserve and reward you, plentifully!

Psalm 20:6  Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.  God says, "I hear you, it will be all right."  His right hand = honor

We have eaten and are full with His Word so now don't just keep it for yourselves but spread it to others.  Remember to rejoice with those that are rejoicing and weep with those that are weeping (they need our prayers, love, strength, and support in this hour).  Pray one for another.  Love you very much.

Love, Sis. Jane
