Message from Jim Koan, Superintendent

11 Lord, you are great and powerful.
        You have glory, victory, and honor.
        Everything in heaven and on earth belongs to you.
    The kingdom belongs to you, Lord;
        you are the ruler over everything.
12 Riches and honor come from you.
       You rule everything.
    You have the power and strength
       to make anyone great and strong.
                 (I Chronicles 29:11-12)

When the earth shakes (literally – dateline Sendai Japan), when waters (literal or figurative) inundate and threaten to wash away anything not on high ground, when the earth burns with rebellion against man’s rule or against God’s truth (dateline the entire Middle East), we need to speak out God’s character, such as is declared in Chronicles 29.

If you are alone at your computer now, or even if you’re not, go ahead and read these verses aloud. Say it: Lord, you are great and powerful…You have the power and strength to make anyone great and strong!

Now say it aloud again…Lord you are great…You rule everything. Now one more time, louder…just kidding. I think you get you it. God is awesome, He is bigger than winds and waves and mountains that fall into the sea…and He is powerful enough to make you something very special. Don’t ever wonder if God is at work in you…

He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion. (Phil. 1:6).
