In Matthew 4 satan said to Jesus if You are the Son of God then turn this stone into bread. Jesus could have done what satan was saying to do but just because you can do something it doesn’t mean that you should do something. Often we think that we should do everything within our power to meet our needs but there are times when we need to be still and listen for the Lord to give us divine direction to meet our need. Jesus said in verse 4 “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” There is a proceeding word that is always proceeding from the Throne Room of Heaven and we must listen for Him to speak rather than coming up with what we can do. We can be guilty of trying everything that we know to do and then after we have exhausted all our resources, listen for God to speak. We could save ourselves years of self effort if we would take moments in the midst of our needs to listen for His present voice, a now word that will lead us and guide us into all truth.
This Sunday is Mother’s Day and what a great day it will be. Give honor to your mother for this is good in the sight of the Lord. I’ll be sharing a special word to the Mom’s and there will be a baby dedication. On Mother’s Day there will only be the morning service. Make sure that you try in some way to show honor to your Mom.
Continue to pray for all those in need. Lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
