May Your Song Testify

It is possible for one who is in physical bonds to rejoice as one without bonds.  Paul and Silas did that at a very dreary hour. Not only were they lifted in their spirits and delivered but “the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, AND EVERYBODY’S CHAINS CAME LOOSE.” (Acts 16:25-26) May our song, may words and the sounds of our lives testify of us that we knew our God as MIGHTY TO SAVE!

You are a Placeholder

placeholderIn your daily faithfulness to God, you might just be a placeholder for someone else. You may be standing between someone and their destruction and, were you not there, they might just move into that thing or that relationship or that distress that prevents their getting to destiny. Moses was a placeholder for Joshua. Elijah was a placeholder for Elisha and Paul was a placeholder for Timothy. It is like being the shoulders that someone else gets to stand on and start out on. Our ceiling is their floor. You are a placeholder for your children and very possibly even for others. 1Cor.16:13 ”Be alert, stand firm in the faith, be brave, be strong.” We are praying you discover daily that you are standing firm in the faith so that others may stand in their place of purpose.
