LETTER FROM THE GM

TRUSTING THE PROMISES OF GOD EVEN WHEN WE DON'T KNOW THE PLAN OF GOD

Submitted By Missy Hightower, Asst. General Manager

When God calls us to a ministry, regardless of what it is, we are commanded to be "good stewards." Many times during our stewardship, we are asked to take "walks" along the way. Often times, we refer to them as faith walks. To walk is an action. So even the phrase "walk by faith" demonstrates that living faith requires action. Our evidence is God's words. God's evidence is our actions. God called Joseph to be a servant and a steward to the Pharaoh of Egypt. Because Joseph was obedient to his assignment, God raised him up and blessed him. In fact, God blessed all of Egypt because Joseph was honest, loyal and a good steward to his calling. He heard the voice of God and obeyed - even when he did not understand the plan of God. Essentially, Joseph was on a "Faith Walk". We at NewVision FM have also been called to be faith walkers. We must be continually seeking the will of God, seeking the wisdom and discernment of God, and we must be obedient to the assignment of God. And yes, even when we may not understand the plan of God. So with all that being said, after many months of fervent prayer and fasting, the Board of Directors has prayerfully decided that there will not be a Spring Friendship Drive in 2019. We are standing in faith and believing God will provide the shortfall of $54,789 from our previous Fall Sharathon, but that He will do it in His way and not ours. We believe without wavering that this is the direction in which God is leading His ministry at this time, and for this season. It is easy to doubt as Thomas did, when expenses are many and donations are few, but Jesus said in the book of John, "Blessed are those who have not seen - those who lack full understanding and knowledge - yet have believed." ‘Believe' in the text is translated as ‘the faith'. Christ promises the blessing to those who do not see, who do not have full understanding, but who believe. Deut. 28:1, 2 says, "Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you because you obey the voice of the Lord your God." So friends, to continue to be good stewards of God's ministry, we as a ministry must sometimes make decisions that in the natural make no sense whatsoever. I think about the testimony of Noah. MY, how silly his assignment must have seemed - until it rained. God is calling each of us to trust in His promise - even when we may not understand His plan. Psalms 37:25 "I've been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor His children begging for bread."
