Well tonight I will minister again and I am so looking forward to it. Tonight’s venue is one of my favorite’s, the Liberty Raymond Tavern in North Bloomfield, OH. It’s not a bar. It’s a lovingly preserved stage coach stop and Underground Railroad station that is used for midweek worship experiences and it is a great place owned by great people. I love this place and these people and, as with every place I go, I want to give them my absolute best and that might well be wrong.
You see it’s not really about my best. Oh, I need to bring my best to everything I do and I have Scripture to back that up, but it needs to be more than that. I need to come humbly, ready to get out of the way, so that something greater than my best can happen. You see what I really desire is a move of God. I want to see the power of God come in and take over and transform lives. If I can be used in some small way to usher that in, it will be far better than my best.
It will be what my maker deserves and it will be so obvious that something beyond me happened and the One who deserves the glory will get it. God deserves all the glory. So I have a plan for tonight and my prayer is that God has a bigger plan. Show us your glory Lord!
There’s a little chalkboard just inside the door at the home where I am staying. It always has a message welcoming me we I get here. Today beside my name is 1 Cor. 2:9. I rushed to my Bible to look it up. Here’s what it said:
“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”
The things that God has prepared for those who love Him.
This lines up so well with what God has put on my heart tonight, and all I can say is “Lord, I love you, and I can’t wait to see what you have prepared.”
To God be the glory.
