This morning the Lord used Rebecca; a little girl, to remind me of a valuable lesson. When we asked her if we could help her put on the back pack, but she kept saying…I can do it, I can do it. I just envisioned the Lord looking down at me as I am struggling and saying…let Me help you..but I keep telling Him I’ve got this (Matt. 11: 28-30). As we were driving, we saw a covered bridge. While we were traveling through it, it reminded me of the song “there’s a light at the end of the tunnel”. How fitting of: you alone can do it, but you can’t do it alone!
As we were driving, the team was able to talk and encourage one another. One of the things that was brought to my attention is that the Lord doesn’t just go before us…but He also is our rear guard…Isaiah 52:12. We are totally protected! Nothing is exposed to the enemy!
While two of our team members prayed and spoke to something, the Lord tasked me with helping to watch Rebecca. She just wanted to swing in circles and jump the stairs…such a great example that we are to come to Christ as children…without pride and with humility. (Luke 18:17)
When we returned to the church, we realized we only prayed with one individual. How cool is it that we modeled Christ by stopping for the one!
