258 – Listening for God’s Direction
February 17 and 18, 1987
Dan said yesterday he wanted to call Pastor Dave to see if maybe he had a prophetic word for us that would give us some guidance. Should we continue here on this course or return home to Reno…
Today Pastor Dave called us!
Dan did not share specifics with Dave because we want to hear from the Lord, not get man’s advice. Nothing definitive transpired. He asked what he could do for us, Dan said pray.
When my mom asked yesterday how the money situation was, I said fine.
We’re depending on God, not man. He will come through with job and provision and clear direction.
In the news from home, Pastor Dave, a former policeman, said that the youth activities area in the juvenile department of the jail is open to and welcoming the Christian message! They have so many youth on drugs they know they need outside help with the kids.
Friends of ours are selling their house and business and going into full-time ministry in a nearby town. I am stirred! Happy for them. Things are happening in Reno.
But living in Livonia has been such a refuge for me. A healing place. It’s not easy to think of letting go of it.
And the Lord opened her (Lydia’s) heart to respond to the things spoken by Paul. Acts 16:14
Open my heart to the things of the Spirit as I read Your word today!
Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was being provoked within him as he was beholding the city full of idols. Acts 17:16
Paul was provoked by the many idols in the city and my spirit was greatly provoked as I watched the Transcendental Meditation video in the Cults class. I finally had to leave.
It’s still amazing to me how when I read in the Bible it relates to my life so perfectly.
