When There's Pain in the Offering
So I sat down on a bar stool and began reading from the Bible book of Job (pronounced Joeb). As I did I felt a distinct sense of the presence and power of the Holy Spirit all over me. I still do, because I did something really narcissistic a few minutes ago - I listened to myself speaking on the internet. Weird eh? And I'm still crying. I don't want to be the one who has to share this kind of message - that God allows us to go through dreadful stuff sometimes but remains sovereign - in charge. I don't find it easy, but I do think it is the one thing that many of us need to hear and to know. The devil may be banging us about but God isn't resigning. He's in it for the long haul and I'm grateful. He's really there when there's pain in the offering!
If you want to, you can listen too. http://www.rock.gg/Media/AllMedia.aspx
