“Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” View Post

One of the ways God has shown himself to me is as Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord who provides. Years ago, my family and I moved to the United States as missionaries. We left behind everything we had in the country of Mauritius and came to Hannibal, Missouri with nothing but God’s clear calling. Once we arrive, a house was suddenly provided for us and people who did not even know us donated furniture and furnishings for our new home. View Post

God through Christ moves me in quiet but confusing, even upsetting ways. The most enduring example happened in two incidents. Over ten years ago my family and I followed some students to work a spring service project at Jesus People USA in Chicago, a Christian commune near Wrigley Field. We worked in the kitchen and cleaning apartments used for victims of domestic abuse. The community members were utterly unpretentious. They were counter-cultural, often arguing with each other about social and political issues, but united in their conviction about following the example of Jesus among Chicago’s poorest and most vulnerable citizens. After we came home my wife Cheryl and I talked for months about the experience. We kept asking how a comfortable, calm life was a strange kind of resistance to obeying Jesus’ call to love the neediest among us. View Post

To ask a person how they’ve experienced God or witnessed God at work is like asking the ocean how it experienced the sand at work. Some days, the waves pound on the beach, churning up the sand and the experience is very real and obvious. Other days, the waves are very gentle and the sand is barely noticed. That’s how my experience with God has been, ever since I can remember. View Post
