Our Work or God’s Work?
When we think about our work with the beloved P people down thru these 41 years, we are often reminded that it really isn’t our work as such but rather God’s work. For He has been the Sender, the Sustainer, the Enabler, the Encourager, and the Motor. Yes, God Almighty has been the gas in the car, the oil in the lamp, the ink in the pen, and the cause of the effect. He has been our Team Leader, our Coordinator, our Director, and our Adviser.
How blessed we have been to trust Him all along the way for every single thing we have needed…..and we have really needed a lot! Truly He has been our sufficiency, our wisdom, our strength, and all that we have needed during this long and exciting journey. Oh the joy of trusting God for the big and impossible things, and see Him deliver time and time and time again according to His own plan and purposes. Yes, He is faithful! Even when we were not faithful, He continued to be faithful.
So yes, we give glory where glory is due….and it all goes to the Most High God!! For this has been His work and we have had the huge privilege and honor of partnering with him in this grand adventure of taking the Gospel to where there was NO GOSPEL, to where there was absolutely no Gospel Availability. And now there are ten different village churches that know Him and desire to live for His beautiful glory! In spite of huge opposition down thru the many years, Christ’s church was born among this esteemed People Group. How great the promise is that He will build His church and that the very powers and influences of hell will not prevail.
