Yesterday was the perfect weather I mean it was nice a cool the temps was in the lows 80′s when we got to the park. Because it has been so hot I had to set up my material for bile study under a tree but yesterday I was actually on the platform. Amazing.
As I was sitting there reading the bible before people came there were several people who stop to talk to me one was a mother of two lovely children she asked was she bothering me and I said no you aren’t I am preparing for my bible study class and she said wow! She asked was I affiliated with any church I said “NO” I am doing this on my own but I do attend church and I told her where I worship, I guess I should of told her that my Pastor is aware of what I am doing but I didn’t think that was really necessary since the Lord Jesus was the one who gave me the assignment.
I explained to her that many people don’t go to church some don’t even feel comfortable this way when I am teaching and they feel uncomfortable or they happen to not agree they can get up and leave and I won’t say a word, if they was in church and they left people would turn and stare. She said you know that is so true, she thanked me for what I am doing here in the Park and when she left she said ‘you have a bless day” matter of fact she told her son to tell me to have a bless day and they went on their way. Now don’t get me wrong we must be in church as a body all together so once they get converted my prayer is that they find a good church where the word is being preached. But I also know not everyone goes to church and so that means we as the body must go out and compel them to come in. AMEN
After she left I put my nose back in my bible because it wasn’t time for class yet, and so I looked at my watch and I said well Lord it’s 1:00pm where is the one in which You Lord will send to me today?
After that 20 minutes went by and still no one showed up and I said okay Lord what does this mean is it because it’s so nice and breezy that the people rather do something else?
By the time I got that out my mouth her comes this young teenager who was about 17 he had his guitar now because my husband plays a guitar I knew what types of questions to engage in with him. I asked him what kind of guitar his was, he told me I asked does he plays professionally he said no but one day soon he hopes. By this time he began playing I could since he was not up to talking to me so I let him be.As I heard him play he began to sing the words hallelujah over and over. I knew that had to have been God. Because this young man told me he wanted to play music like Jimmy Hendricks.
Than as I sat there and began looking up in the sky seeing how clear it was I noticed that their was this man who was sitting in the seats now he could have been on his lunch break or he could have been enjoying the weather, but after he sat there I notice how he kept watching me. He eve got out of his seat to come down to the platform where I was so he can see what material I had..He never said one word he looked and then he walked away. I kind of though that was odd.
Than after 45 minutes still no one showed up for class and I was kind of getting upset than her comes this lady with her children the three of them came and sat on the platform where I was and they ate their lunch. And so I said Lord what is this all about, not one person came to bible study today? And the Lord said “Desi there will be times some will come and some won’t come but what is important is that you remaining obedient. Is your obedience going to be out of those who come or is your obedience going to be from what I the Lord GOD gave you?
Well when the Lord puts it that way I said “Lord I will be obedient because You were the one to tell me to do this so it’s You and I in the Bible Study class today and when the class was over I learned a valuable lesson and that was this, When you and I remain faithful and obedient to God it’s not what we want but when He sees us faithful to the little things He will trust us with much more…AMEN. I am glad for the Holy Ghost conviction in my spirit because we as His children need to be corrected…Now I see that there is coming a time in my life serving Him that He has something much bigger than bible study for me, and when He is done preparing me by using this Bible Study I will reap my harvest in due time.
Thank you Lord for when I try to get ahead of Jesus, You know how to bring me back..
