This is a word of encouragement to our congregation. This encouragement comes from David Wilkerson. I feel that God is moving within our congregation in the midst of the afflictions and troubles many are going through. Be encouraged that what you are going through is for a purpose. God is making mighty warriors out us. I believe He will be using you and I……
to do great and mighty things for Him. But, He has to strengthen us and bring us to a place where we trust and love Him with all our heart, soul, strength and mind, (Luke 10:27) , where we are humbled and dependent on Him. Many times He uses the afflictions and troubles in our lives to do this. Continue to be praying and seeking the Lord during these times of trial. Pray even more diligent then you have, seek His face with all that is within you. Allow God to prepare you.
God Bless you all, I so love you guys and I am very blessed to serve the Lord with a group of loved ones like you. I don”t think a pastor has any better people as you that God has blessed me with to serve, and serve with.
Now be blessed by David Wilkerson”s devotional

GOD’S SPECIAL FORCES
You”ve heard of the U.S. Army”s Special Forces—a highly trained
army-within-an-army, an elite unit of dedicated soldiers. Special Forces are
made up completely of volunteers, fighters who have been noticed and called out
by their superiors.
Before the war in Afghanistan, Osama bin Laden had said American soldiers were
weak, cowardly, not trained for mountain warfare. He predicted the Taliban
would send U.S. troops home in shame, but he hadn”t counted on America”s
Special Forces. This fearless unit invaded Afghanistan with a mere 2,000
soldiers. Within days, it had located all the enemy”s strongholds.
I believe God is doing something similar in HighlightsOver 540 games are offered at Ladbrokes Casino, including state-of-the-art blackjack, poker, la roulette and slot machines that are powered by leading software developer Microgaming. the spiritual realm. While in
prayer, I was impressed by the Holy Spirit with the concept—God has been at
work in the heavenlies on a covert operation. He”s raising up an
army-within-an-army, searching his regular troops to form an elite unit of
volunteers. This special force is made up of warriors he can touch and stir, to
do battle with the enemy. We see a picture of this in the Bible, with Saul”s
special militia. The Word tells us, “There went with him a band of men, whose
hearts God had touched” (I Samuel 10:26).
God”s special forces today include the young, the middle-aged, even the
elderly. They”ve been training in their secret closets of prayer. Their
intimacy with Jesus has taught them how to fight. Now they know how to do
battle on any spiritual plane, whether in the mountains or in valleys.
God”s army-within-an-army is in place in every nation. Its activity may be
covert now, but soon we”ll see it doing exploits in the name and power of
Christ. God”s Word is coming forth, and the famine is ending. The Lord will
prevail. His Word shall conquer all.
“The people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” (Daniel
“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up
with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk,
and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
