380 – He is Adequate
September 15, 1989 San Francisco
Proverbs 16:21 The wise in heart are called discerning and pleasant words promote instruction.
23 A wise man’s heart guides his mouth and his lips promote instruction.
Tonight I went forward to counsel at the crusade, expecting God to direct me to the right person. I was looking, waiting, praying, and another worker directed me to Suzanne. She is a beautiful Christian Catholic overflowing with the Spirit of God. And she prayed for me! We exchanged phone numbers.
Our friends Paul and Karen arrived for a visit. Paul prayed against fear: anxiety and fear exalt themselves against the knowledge of God. Let your lips speak wisdom! He exhorted me that whenever the word inadequate pops up replace it with the word available. I am available—He is adequate. And joy should follow!
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but no abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry about the life of Jesus! 1 Corinthians 4:8-10
Paul and Karen babysat Stevie, Markie,and Danny, and Dan and Timmy and I went to the Crusade. God moved mightily. I held a lady’s 7 month old baby so she could go forward for prayer.
